We had a 3:30 pm tour on the hottest day of the year. Could have been miserable. But we had Lucille, smart, funny, and totally in tune with the group. She maneuvered our tour to the fountains and the shade. She helped accommodate tour members who didn't want to walk up the Palatine hill but still wanted to rejoin us. She worked around the "new" regulations at the Colosseum entrance and the delays on the elevators for the mobility impaired. I had wanted to just cancel the tour because of the heat and crowds. She made it so worthwhile! Brava Luci!

I wish I could remember our guides name, she was amazing. I think it might have been Renata, or something similar. It was so very hot and she was so mindful to make sure we always stood in the shade, or if we had to go in the sun that it wasn’t for too long, and she made sure we topped up our water at the water fountains. The tour itself was so informative and insightful. I’ve been to the Colosseum three times before and I learned new things! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, it was perfect, and there were lots of chances to sit and rest for a few minutes which meant we could finish the tour in the heat with relative ease. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful experience.
