Our guide, Maria, was entertaining and informative. Her English is perfect and she knows so much about the monuments of Rome. Her pace was perfect, making sure we saw and learned about as much as possible and not leaving anyone behind.

It was a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. The tour was difficult for someone with a back/hip/ or foot problems because the uneven cobblestones in the roman forum and palatine hill. Otherwise it was great and well worth it to learn about history.

Nice half-day tour in the morning starting with the Palatine hills, ending with the Colosseum. The tour says to meet at 8:45, but the guide didn't show up until closer to 9 so I thought I was at the wrong place for a while. There was a lot more to see at the Palatine Hills than expected and it was interesting to see. Our tour guide.. I think his name was Jan.. was informative and kept picking up random plants along the way telling us the significance of the plant which was interesting. He also smoked a lot. I was watching smoke, roll a new cigarette, and smoke some more during the three hour tour. I liked that the tour was a smaller group, about 10 of us total. We were also given a headset so we could hear him clearly . I'd recommend this tour. The Colosseum and the Palatine Hills are a must see and it's nice to have someone tell you the history and significance of things as you look at it.

Did the tour on a Sunday, one of the busiest days. This tour covers a lot of ground and busy day makes it difficult to see all in unhurried pace. All sites worth seeing, suggest on a Sunday to do 1 or two of attractions, not all 3.(Forum, Colleseum, Palletine Hill.)

This was the highlight of our trip to Rome, the guide was excellent bordering on a comedienne, We would never have gone to Palatine Hill if not for this tour and it was great loved every minute of it ! Don't think twice book it ! Also do the hop on/off open top bus while there, its a great cheap way to get about and see the sights.

This was a great tour. The guide was full of information. Three hours is about my breaking point, I wish it could have been done in 2-1/2 but there really is a lot to see. Best way to go if your visiting the coliseum.

While I enjoyed seeing all the ruins, I was disappointed with our tour guide's ability to speak clearly and directly. It sounded like she was talking to herself for the most part, which makes it hard to follow what she is saying or stay engaged in absorbing whatever information she was provided. There were also some families in the group that made the experience less enjoyable as they caused some delays with their strollers getting stuck or losing their phone behind part of the ruins. I'm sure with better luck on the group and a better guide this would have been an awesome tour.
