JC was wonderful and quite knowledgeable! He was very aware of the heat and was great about keeping us out of the sun as much as possible all while making sure we had the best experience.

We really enjoyed this tour. This place is very touristy and line is very long. But they arrange everything for you beforehand, and all you have to do is to show up. Our guide Lumy (I hope I spelled it right) was amazing. She is very charming and funny. She tell the history of Roman Empire and it is not boring because she tells a story. Highly Recommended.

Only had 6 people in our small group so we could stop for water and increase the pace of the tour as needed. Very good guide. Headsets worked well, especially within the colosseum, where there are many competing voices.

Not too bad, not too good either. Prepare for a race against time.

Our guide might have been very knowledgeable but he was mumbling badly and hardly audible over the one-ear headsets. It wasn’t helped by the fact that he absolutely raced through the Foro Romano, with the group struggling to keep up and him saying single-sentence things like “this is the Roman senate” (let’s not forget like a thousand years of history happened here) while half the group was still 100m back and he was on to the next thing. It got much better at the Colosseum where he did a great job.

The guide Juan Carlos had too little knowledge, couldnt bring the story to life and it was very hard to follow his mind and fractions of information. He did through names of kings etc at us but didnt give us the why, what of how. The worst trip ever actually and not worth the money.

The tour guide was informative and geared the information towards both the adults and teenagers in our group. We would have missed important historical information if we had done this as a self-guided tour.

25 people for a tour that promises "no more than 15-20" per group

We thought we were starting at the the Colosseum at 9:35am, but ended there instead (the title says colosseum, Palatine Hill and then Roman Forum). The tour promises groups no larger than 15-20, but we started with 23 people and when we finally made it to the colosseum at 1140am, they added on 2 more people for a total of 25. By 11:40am, the colosseum was absolutely packed. Tour guide was average, but she tried her best. She appeared to be very unhappy about being 5 people over the maximum promised and was on the phone several times. I'd find another tour operator if I were you. Or book a tour with a smaller group and hope they actually cap the group size. And book a shorter tour if you have a shirt attention span. Also, tour went over the alloted time and 6 of us had to interrupt her to turn in our headsets. 2 people left even earlier.

Colosseum and the whole tour. The guide Juan Carlos really explained well and took care to keep us in the shade and give us water breaks as much as possible. Even though it was hot it was not tiring.

Our guide Katya was very nice and knowledgeable. She sparked the tour with a lot of light jokes which was very refreshing taking into the account the intensity of new information which was poured at us! The only reason we gave 4 stars is cuz the audio device they provided us with was poor quality and we had to really strain our ears to catch what was she saying. Also, we’d like to hear more info and stories you can’t find on Google.

The tour was on time. Our guide spoke French, which was hot her mother tongue, but was easy to understand. She did not seem to understand our questions however, so we stopped asking. It seemed more like she was reciting a text that she had learned by heart. Knowledgeable guide. The amount of time spent on the palatine ruins was too much compared to the colosseum. We paid almost 600$ for a family of 6, and we didn’t feel like we got our money’s worth.

Unfortunately not an enjoyable trip. The quality of the headsets was really bad, was really hard to hear the guide. They kept us in the heat for around 20 minutes outside the colosseum waiting for another person who wasn’t in the group. Then the guide and another guide from the same company had an argument about tickets. And finally there’s was very little cohesion in the tour from start to finish. It was really hard to follow the guide, the guide moved from point to point without linking it to the history in front of us. After 30 minutes I stopped listening and just enjoyed the areas.

I'm so glad we booked this Fast Track tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. We saw so much more than we ever could have done on our own and our guide was excellent in helping us manage the crowds, the time and the super hot heat of summer in Rome. Highly recommend!
