Brilliant experience with very informative and passionate guides.

Met with our guide, Serena, easily for the Ancient Rome tour, who spoke perfect English and took time to explain everything. Her knowledge was extensive and gave us plenty of time to enjoy the experience and take photos. The Colosseum and Forum were very busy but Serena was able to make it seem unhurried. Serena was also very helpful in explaining the meeting point for our afternoon tour. A truly enjoyable morning for our family (including teenage children), made easy by Serena. In the afternoon our guide, Barbara for the Museum and Vatican City tour, again spoke perfect English. Again very knowledgable and experienced. Barbara took the time to explain the important art before entering the museums which was extremely helpful especially to our teenage children. The tour was very enjoyable and informative. We had been to the Vatican before but discovered new treasures which we hadn't seen before! Both guides were exceptional and made both experiences highly enjoyable.

Amazing Private tour by an extremely educated archeologist!

Yeah that's right, not only was our tour guide Roberta kind, funny, sweet and personable, she was also an archeologist who held a degree in classical European history. What did this mean for us? We could practically point at any rock, statue, symbol, and ask why it's there, and she would have an amazingly interesting answer for us. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and had the pleasure of walking with her through an extremely fun / interesting / informative tour through the colosseum, Roman forum, and pantheon. By the way, this is labeled as a "small group", but it was more like a private tour because my wife and I were the only ones in our group, and they had guides there for other groups as well. Roberta, you rock!! Keep up the amazing work :) Well worth the ticket value, would pay double for a similar new experience!

Whether to give our guides Serena and Marta 5 out of 5 or a Big 6!!

We had searched the internet for a comprehensive tour prior to going and after reading the reviews, we chose this one. The biggest surprise was that it was cheaper than the other tours!! Everything went very smoothly including regular updates via our emails and mobiles during our stay regarding meeting points and timings etc. Our day was split between the Colosseum and The Vatican and therefore we had two guides, both of them qualified historians and archaeologists in their own right and all in perfect English. The queues were massive, but having the prepaid tickets that were organised we just walked in! Thank you Serena & Marta and Mea Tours. Best Wishes Alex & Karen.

Organized and informative tour of the major ancient sites.

Check-in was easy to find and timely. The guide was full of information about the sites visited. Due to crowds at the Easter Holiday, the Colosseum security line was tedious, but the guide filled the time interesting commentary. Entry into the Roman Forum was quick because our guided group could bypass the long line.

Great way to see the largest sites in Rome in one day

Our guide was very good. This tour is a walking tour with a 60 minute break for lunch and then you are on your own to get to the Vatican. We had less than 15 people on both legs of the day and had good auto equipment to listen to the guide. We do wish we had more time at the Vatican
