Our guide was excellent but tour wasn't as promised.

First off, let me say that our tour guide Vincenzo was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and really made the tour entertaining as well as educational. He was also very conscientious of his guests and the heat... always trying to find us shade. We couldn't find our group right away and received a courtesy phone call when we didn't show up on time. I really appreciated that. The tour was advertised as a maximum of 12 people, but we had 24 in our group. This made it more challenging and at times frustrating, especially considering this was the most expensive booking agent for this tour. Also, the tour was to include underground Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. After 4 hours, we were dismissed before Palatine Hill with no tour of those ruins. We had access to it, but didn't get an explanation which was disappointing. Bottom line, this was a great tour because of the guide, but there were more people in the group than promised and we didn't receive what was advertised.

Excellent tour with great guide - nice, knowledgeable and flexible.

We really enjoyed our tour with Pete. The small group turned out to just be the two of us and he was very flexible after a delay caused by the Rome marathon. Our taxi driver misunderstood the request to find the particular cafe as a request for any cafe near the Colosseum. Then, once the taxi was gone and we realized the mistake, we were blocked by the marathon gate from getting to where we needed to be. Pete was able to coordinate a new location with us and since there were only the two of us, changed up the order for the tour according to our new meeting place. We started quite late and he adjusted accordingly. I only wish we had known of the marathon - we would likely have chose a different day for the tour!

Perfect! Got much more than we paid for!

Our guide Erturk from Roma Experience, was amazing: he really loves his job and gave us much more background information than we expected. Furthermore, he had great visual illustrations, so that we could actually see the buidings that are in ruins today. Although we had only booked the normal tour, our group was really small (only 4 people) and Erturk was happy to extend the tour. In the end we did not only see the colosseum underground as booked, but also the upper levels, and spent close to 5 hours with him (had booked only 4). He managed to present everything very vividly - we wished he would have cobtinued all day! So all in all: great to book the tour with roma experience and Erturk! Thank you!

An amazing tour with an incredibly knowledgable guide

Wow, what an experience.....Our tour operator and guide are some of the best we've used. We were late to our tour, due to the cab dropping us off in the wrong location. By the time we arrived, the main tour had left, but the tour operator was waiting for us! He apologized for not being a great tour guide while he tried to point out some interesting sights while we caught up to the tour group...Once we arrived our guide was extremely knowledgible about both the Forum and the Colosseum. She took the time to answer each question as thoroughly as she could. She even stayed approximately 25 minutes later than the tour was supposed to end. Recommend Highly

Very Informative, and fast track tickets a must!

The guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative and his English language excellent. It was sweltering hot but he managed to keep our interest and towards the end of the tour, gave everyone the opportunity to have a look/wander where they particularly wanted to explore. The fast track tickets we purchased were definitely to be recommended.
