Rome has a lot of history and you can’t just walk around without knowing them. This was a great tour with skip the line ticket which saved us a lot of time. Nicolas, our tour guide was really knowledgeable and make the tour fun and educational. I totally recommend it!

Super complete tour. The highlights for me were the Palatine Hill and visiting the Arena of the Colosseum. The only thing, is it a bit long but then again it is very complete. I would recommend it for sure.

It's a big difference to travel with a guide than alone in the Coliseum, the explanations and knowledge of the guide make the place much more fascinating.

The tour was provided according to the included activities. The advice is to stay on Palatine Hill after the tour and enjoy a perfect view of Colosseum.

The guide was wonderfull. No Rush a lot of info very well spent money;)
