The first half of the tour is around the alter of the fatherland and the Roman forum. It was ok. Not super interesting. The second half is the colosseum, that was terrible. The guide rushed through it all and had the most sarcastic tone of excitement the whole time. Her accent is thick, which is fine, but when she’s talking super quickly because she’s done this 100 times and is super bored it’s almost impossible to understand. The bits I understood were not interesting or at all worth the price. I remember looking around at the others in the tour and they looked just as bored as me. Serious waste of money. I’ve done this tour with the colosseums official night tour and it was INCREDIBLE. Unfortunately, that tour was sold out so I resorted to this. If you’re able to get the official tour get it. If not don’t bother with this one it doesn’t come close to that experience.
