This tour saved the day! We originally booked our Colosseum tour through a different company. Upon arriving in Rome they called and canceled the tour on us. This was at the top of our must-see list, so I quickly searched for a tour that would include it all. I found Show Me Italy through the "Get Your Guide" app and booked a tour that included all the levels of the arena, including the underground. We hit the jackpot with Amanda as our tour guide! Her depth of knowledge in the ancient city truly brought the whole place to life for us. We could've listened to her talk all day. Thank you so much for being the highlight of our honeymoon trip to Rome!

Literally had the BEST tour guide. She was a hoot. I was scared I would get stuck with a tour guide that just repeated what’s off of plaques in different words, but she told us so many things we wouldn’t have known otherwise. And she even brought a book to show us what monuments looked like before they were ruins. It was a lovely tour! :)

Excellent tour. Bianca, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patience. I believe without her guide we just go around without knowing the areas and what represent it. Thank you Bianca!

Excellent guide tour! Her name was Samantha and she was very knowledgeable. Loved everything about the tour! Just be ready to walk a LOT!

Nous avons beaucoup apprecié le nombre limité de visiteurs par tranche horaire, rendant la qualité de la visite bien meilleure.
