Our guide Helena was very friendly and had a lot of humor. We had chosen our visit badly, we were unable to enter the arena. So pay attention to the description of the visit ... We were the only ones who had to leave the tour in the middle of the experience. Too bad

Detailed tour. Andrade was very entertaining and speaks very good English - the tour took longer due to the Greenpass entry control. The wait there for 20 'in the blazing sun was a nuisance because you don't expect it, but she bridged it well. Overall recommendable, I would only have liked a hint that no “fast lane” admission is possible after all.

Lovely tour. This tour didn’t include access to the Colosseum, like we thought we had booked. Luckily we were able to add access to the Colosseum for 10 eur more, and still get the guided tour. Can only recommend it! Try it in the afternoon to catch the sunset from the Colosseum, it’s just magnificent.
