Alessandro was great! I enjoyed his commentary and the fact that he studied archeology and was seemly genuinely friendly. I was on my own and was comfortable with tour.

The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Very keen to answer any questions people had. He really gave a good feel for what life was like back in the ancient times. Also it was a really really hot day and he tried to keep us all in the shade as best as possible. Great tour!

very hot day, good we did early in the morning, but when we left the colosseum to outside walk that was a bit much as it was out in the open and the ground was burning your feet, we had to finish early, as it was a very hot day, if it wasn't so hot it would be great but you cannot help the weather

We had Francesca for our guide. She was so passionate, knowledgeable and proud of her Roma and the history that makes it what it is. It was an extremely hot day in August but she managed to find us shade when she could. I would not recommend going to the Colosseum and not doing a tour - you learn so much! The "Ancient Rome" part of the half day tour was just so cool - I may have liked that better than the Colosseum! It's sort of surreal to be next to artifacts that are 2,000 years old, and walk on an ancient Roman road. Definitely do this - it's 3 hours and it's worth it.

Francesca was an excellent guide. A lot of information, and she looked for the shady spots on this very hot day. We learned so much about Ancient Rome and it was obvious that she was deeply interested in the subject. We would recommend this tour.
