Responded 15 Mar 2020
Dear Guest, we're very sorry to read about this story, but we're aware that our Booking & Sales Departments having been handling your issue. There is absolutely no need to get stressed about this, we're on it now and you'll definitely hear from us as soon as possible. On a side note, we understand your frustration: we know our destinations and our sights very well, and the Colosseum is without a doubt one of the most visited ones during the Christmas period. The visit takes three hours to complete and within this time frame our guides must include the Colosseum as well as other portions of the broad area called Ancient Rome. We also know that in the last couple of weeks some early closures of the Roman Forum forced our groups to speed up their tours if they wanted to squeeze it all in the three hours. For this we can only apologize, but it really was force majeure. As for your tour guide, we're certainly going to investigate and hear his side of the story. Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
