Mario, our guide, was very good! He told a lot of curiosity and the history of these amazing tourist spots. In addition to being very friendly! In my opinion, the tour could be a little longer so that we can know even more curiosities about these beautiful places. I highly recommend!

This was a WOW experience! A bit longer than two hours but well worth it. Helena was very informative and the walk by the ruins at night enhanced the whole perception of the information delivered. I enjoyed it much more than visiting the Colosseum during the day two years ago... it was too busy and hot. In the evening it is much cooler and almost empty. And the ruins are illuminated at night which makes the walk very romantic

The first Touriks Tour Guide, Isida, was so very helpful. The second Guide, Helena, guided us through the Pallatine Hill and the Roman Forum. Helena was very knowledgeable. It was a Sunday, so a lot of the locals were there so the line through security took longer, but Helena was very efficient and effective. I did not catch the third guide’s name. She is an archaeologist and she guided us through the Colosseum. She was very knowledgeable as well. I will surely recommend this tour to our relatives and friends who will ask us about our trip to Rome.
