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.

Luciano, our guide, knew just about everything about the Colosseum, the Pallatino, The Forum, and everywhere else we went in our 4 1/2 hour tour through ancient Rome.
We can not speak highly enough of his dedication to our interests, and attention to detail.
Everyone should take a tour of this nature, never mind that it is rather costly, it's certainly worth the cost.
