Traveler Tips


  • "We certainly covered some ground so wear comfortable walking shoes and I daresay in summer it would get very hot so hats and water would be a necessity." See review
  • "Make sure you have good walking shoes on and are in good physical condition as one will be going up and down multiple steps and hills" See review
  • "It is a lot of history to know in a short period of time, so I recommend seeking small groups, which will make me return to know more and enjoy the guide's knowledge." See review

The guides always make any tour worthwhile, and when you have someone who is actually enthusiastic about what they are showing you, it brings the experience to life. It would have been hard to enjoy the sights as much as I did without all the stories that bring the ancient rock to life.

We would have loved to know who the guide was to congratulate them but we are happy you enjoyed the tour with us. Thank you for choosing our company. All our guides have many years of experience teaching customers about our lovely city. Thank you for your kind review.

Our tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum with Fe was a wonderful way to dive into the history of Rome. Fe is a passionate & knowledgeable guide who delivers her tour in an entertaining manner while challenging you to think about what you’re seeing at the same time. I’d be happy to recommend Fe’s tour for anyone wanting a tour of this area in English.

We are thankful for your words and glad you liked Fe, we also love her! all our tour guides are multilingual, fun and will make you see the tour with different eyes.

Fabulous tour with Mat!

This was an awesome 3 hour tour lead by the very personable and knowledgeable Matej (Mat). We struck a beautiful sunny winter's day which made for fabulous blue sky photos of such amazing and awe inspiring places like the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Paletine Hill that we'd only ever seen on tv before. We certainly covered some ground so wear comfortable walking shoes and I daresay in summer it would get very hot so hats and water would be a necessity. Slight issue with the microphone/headphone on occasion but heard all the important stuff!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Dear vhargreaves, What an amazing review! Because your experience is our priority, we choose to work only with the best guides. Matt will be very happy to read your kind words! Thanks for pointing out the issues with the mic and headphones: we treasure such notes since they help us make our services better. Thank you for choosing us and we hope to see you soon again!

Unbelievable this part of history.

Only a personal visit on-site, to really understand this part of our story. Books, photos, videos do not transmit the real grandeur of this period, which they built, the size of these monuments. Our guide gave us a lot of knowledge. It is a lot of history to know in a short period of time, so I recommend seeking small groups, which will make me return to know more and enjoy the guide's knowledge.
