The tours themselves were great! The company hosting the tours was...less great. We made sure to get there the 25 minutes early and thank god we did. They did not have our tour purchase on any list so they ended up upgrading us to a semi-private group for the Vatican (which was awesome!). Our guide was excellent but she didn't explain anything until we were already through security at the Vatican. Then, in the afternoon. we went to the Colosseum to meet at 1pm and no one was there. The summer hours state 1pm and winter hours 3pm. Well, we called and they said the tour started at 2pm. Very confusing. But our guide, once again, was fantastic and the Roman Forum portion was really fascinating. Recommend the tour but the company could do with some organization improvements!
Marlee was fantastic. Incredibly knowledgeable, passionate about her work and very personable. She put a fresh perspective on some of the artwork pushing us to look at it from a different point of view. The tour was three hours long, but it certainly did not feel like 3 hours. I could have listened to Marlee for another 3 hours.
Overall great experience, would 100% recommend to anyone wanting to do both tours in a day! We had two separate guides for the Vatican and Colosseum/Roman Forum but nothing Davide and Julio were amazing and very knowledgeable
Great tour, very knowledgeable guides! Learn things you wouldn’t know without reading a text book! Lunch was “Eh”.
We were fortunate in that the group turned out to be very small. Just my wife and myself
