We did the colosseum, the underground, Palatine hill, and the forum tour (3.5 hrs). Our guide was kind and had clean humor. And when the bathrooms in the Palatine area were closed, he made every effort to get it rectified, even though he had no control over public bathrooms. But he made every effort and even got them reopened for us. I have gone on a cheaper colosseum tour before but think this was 15x better. His English is also FANTASTIC!

Thank Nina T

We had Elaine for our tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. She was fabulous! She had such a wealth of knowledge and brought such great perspective to the pieces/artwork we saw. And to top it off, she has the BEST sense of humor! Loved this tour!

First off we were scheduled the day of the Rome Marathon making access to the colosseum very difficult. Roads were closed and it was hard to find anyone who knew the way to get there from the Pantheon area where we were staying. Fortunately the tour company, The Roman Guy was on the ball with reaching out to those who signed up and arranged an alternate meeting spot. I think just about everyone made the tour. That is a real feat. The guide was overqualified and I say this in a positive way. Fernando has a PHD in archaeology and his depth of knowledge was mind boggling. He was patient, informative, and able to keep the tour group together through the chaos of the colosseum, palatine hill, and the forum. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SPENDING THE EXTRA MONEY FOR THE UNDERGROUND TOUR! Small group and over 3 hours of the colosseum, palatine hill and the forum. Great operation.

Thank egabele

Ciao! Grazie for taking the time to leave a review! Fernando is an amazing guide and definitely an expert in his field! We're glad you had such an excellent experience and if you want the full Colosseum experience, the underground is the way to go! We hope you had a fantastic vacation in Rome and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
