Super disorganized. No one could understand the guide. Poor instructions on how to connect meet. Heard other guides and they sounded much better.
Great tour.

We enjoyed the tour so much. Our guide was great and knowledgeable and had A LOT of enthusiasm. It was HOT, but having water around the city to refill our bottles was a huge help.

Laura L our tour guide was brilliant and gave us facts fun and brought the colosseum to life. The weather was very humid being June and we set off in full heat but Laura did her best to keep us in the shade and made the tour very doable and enjoyable.
Thank you Francesco

Our guide Joseph was full of information and good humor. He talked clearly and went slowly and answered questions. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this tour...huge bang for the buck!
