My 17 yo daughter and me booked this trip. Our guide Alice (or Alicia?) Was very nice and gave us a lot of information about ancient Rome. This tour really made our trip in Rome. We highly recommend it!

So glad we booked this 3 hour tour, it was worth the money and would highly recommend it. Learned so much about Ancient Rome from our amazing guide Mara. She was enthusiastic and really knew her subject. Did not feel rushed, although it was very busy in the Colosseum and she was

The Colosseum and Forum are a must see. But see them with another tour company or on your own. This company was awful. First, the bus picked us up at the hotel. But instead of taking us all the way to the colosseum, it drove around and then literally dropped us about 150

Dear client, thanks for your review. We will take the appropriate action to prevent this from happening again. Please let me clarify a few points that might be helpful for other travellers. 1. This is a group tour and it follows a set itinerary. 2. In Rome there are strict rules to access the archaeological area, and our minivans must comply with these traffic regulations. 3. The return transfer to the hotel is never mentioned as included. Best wishes from sunny Italy

Dear client, thank you very much for your nice feedback. Yes, the Roman Forum is so big and full of monuments that you could easily spend an entire day there without getting bored. This is why we select the best guides, to give a good insight of the Roman history, while keeping the visit not too long and tiring. Best wishes from sunny Italy
