It was an awesome tour. Flavia was extremely knowledgeable and answered every single question without a hiccup. Flavia was enthusiastic and entertaining and made the tour perfect. I would suggest if this is your first tour, choose Flavia as your guide. If it's your 2nd or 3rd, choose Flavia as your guide.

What a Great Tour. Couldn't have asked anymore from our Tour Guide. She was so informative and spent so much time explaining everything in the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. She really is a credit to Get Your Guide. Would highly recommend booking
