What people are saying about Rome

Great guides in both the sections of the tour

Barbara for the Hill & Forum (2+approx)was informative, fantastic and lively with a group of 6. With the small group we covered a lot of ground and a wealth of information. Coliseum Dungeon section was new to us, and worth it. Extremely knowledgeable guide in a group of 24. Tours and guides were outstanding. Before tour make sure you have active communication available- ie phone , WhatsApp, email?. 2of the 3 couples had signed up for 4 pm over 2weeks before tour- then got 24 hours notices that tour time changed to 2 pm. This has to do with the dungeon section is very limited and time slots are difficult to get. Luckily I saw a what’s app message at 10am, being I was at sea before hand. Also do be there 25 minutes beforehand and use GPS/ google look for Nicotours white banner.

Chaos getting tickets near the arch. Running late again.

Chaos getting tickets near arch. Not girls on site fault though. Needs more organising with a different system. People getting frustrated and angry. Late again as other tour by 25 minutes. Why get everyone to turn up 25 early if you’re going to be 25 minutes late. 50 minutes wasted. First guide, a man, around forum and hill wasn’t great. Even though a small group could not hear him. Seemed to be just filling time talking about marble to much. Would but recommend this part of tour ..... I would recommend the Colosseum tour which was great and all credit to the guide, a young woman who was fantastic. Fun to be with, funny and very knowledgeable.

Transported back in time by Marcus the best guide I've ever met!

Our tour guide Marcus was a historian from Romania and this guy really knew his stuff! He magically linked the fascinating stories and facts of Ancient Rome in such an interesting and humorous way. The three hour tour of The Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum was spellbinding. Some guides would have bombarded us with facts parrot fashion as if reading from a script but not him! Even as pensioners we feel we learnt so much from him . Things that we will remember forever because of the way we were told. The Colosseum has been top of my bucket list for years and thanks to Marcus it exceeded my expectations! Highly recommended!

We booked the 9:00am shuttle but was combined with the 9:30am people~

Not happy about the way we have to wait for the next bus; obviously our bus was not “broken” as we were told, because we were able to get on the bus at 8:50am but waited on the bus for more customers to show up from other shops or something~ We didn’t leave until 9:30, plus the traffic; it took us 2 hours to get into Rome Termini station instead of 1 hour as advertised. This is not good if I had a tighter schedule then I will be in big trouble.

Both guides were really knowledgable and friendly

We had a fantastic tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman forum. Both Julio and Keith were extremely knowledgable, friendly and fun. They kept the group moving and the time flew by. It was easy to find the start of the tour and the organising team were well prepared and very organised. One word of advice is to take some food with you if you are going over lunchtime as there is nowhere to buy food on or near the sites.
