We were 2 couples and this was superb. Our guide, Angela, a local, was brilliant. She was easy to understand, helpful and friendly and open to what we wanted to see with excellent suggestions. We entered the Colosseum quickly through the express lane, despite there being long queues patiently waiting to get in.
She took us from the Colosseum to Palatine Hill and then the Forum. We found it a great way to see what we did as our stay in Rome was limited. With just 4 in the group, we moved far more quickly then we would have with a larger group. We are very happy we chose this way of seeing Ancient Rome

This tour was outstanding! Our tour guide, Irene, was an expert, having majored in art history at the university. During our walk, she helped us understand how the history of the area helped shape the present, and helped us imagine what it must have been like when the gladiatorial games were held in the Colosseum and the Caesars and Cleopatra, for example, walked the same paths we were. We did indeed manage to skip the lines with her help. This tour is a super value for anyone wanting to make the most of their Rome trip. I highly recommend it.

We had a great tour of the colosseum, forum and palatine hill with a private guide booked through Viator. Our guide whose name I unfortunately can't remember was a PhD in archaeology who had worked on some of the areas nearby so she was a real wealth of knowledge! The check-in process was flawless although on first glance it looked like kindof a nightmare with all the people waiting in line!, and we waited just a couple minutes to check in , then we were handed off directly to our guide with no other delays! Based on this tour, I would book again with this company without hesitation.
