    The tour exceeded our expectations thanks to the tour guide, Andreada (sorry if I’m misspelling it). She had such an extensive knowledge about the places we visited and shared it in a very engaging way with all of us. I loved the fact that we got the headsets thanks to which we could hear her clearly even in the most crowded parts of the tour. Overall, if you’re short on time during your visit in Rome and you wanna learn/see as much as possible- look no further.

    We participated in the tour that allowed us to visit the imperial forums and the Colosseum. Interesting experience. Special thanks to our guide Rosa. Prepared, professional and very attentive to the personal needs of the group. With her stories she managed to make us take a leap into the past with lightness and irony. Thanks Alessandra, Barbara and Gabriel

    Definitely a must-do! Not a standard boring tour guide where you listen to a guide rambling of hard to remember facts, quite the contrary even! Diego (I hope you have him as your guide) told us about the majestic history of Rome in an easy to follow and funny manner. It made the time fly by and you did not feel extremely tired afterwards!
