Fantastic tour and knowledgeable guide

A well run tour on a hot day in Rome with a knowledgeable guide who was sympathetic to everyone's requirements. Wouldn't recommend to those with particularity bad mobility issues due to the walking required on uneven surfaces, but highly recommend for anyone else visiting Rome.

Absolutely fantastic tour - with amazing Dennis!!

We are so thankful that we came across lovely Nassir outside the Colosseum, else we would not have known about this fantastic tour company and what they have to offer! What a lovely chap he was, far from pushy but so keen to help us...More

Awesome tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide

Renata was our tour guide and she really explained and went through the history of the sites we visited. The skip the lines and arena access is worth it. Pa. Definitely wear comfy walking shoes as you’ll rack up plenty of steps.

I don’t believe so. It’s mostly outdoors and not Churches.
