"†roman‡ †forum‡ and colleseum"

We took a maya tour which we picked up as we walked around outside the Roman forumarea. There are a lot of different tours so make sure you pick maya tours. Tom, our guide was fantastic and we were totally captive throughout the tour. We loved it and learnt so much. we highly recommend this company and today are again joining a maya tour to do Vatican. unless you know a lot about roman history then a tour is really worth it as there is so much to take in and if you have a great guide, like Tom it makes it a total highlight of your holiday.

"Excellent tour of the Collosseum, Palatino and †Roman‡ †Forum‡ with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide Diego!!!"

we started under a “meteorological bomb” aka lots of rain, but our guide Diego, had so much information and was so full of energy that we stick to it and did not regret it. Booking a tour is 100% worth it as you skipped all the lines, you are given a headphones and can hear the guide perfectly , even if you fall a bit behind or look at other things while listening.
I am 100% convinced that we got much more with being with a guide _ as an historian I usually do the reading myself and/or take the audio guide, but this skipping the line make the extra $ worth.

"Colosseum with neihbouring attactions tour, a captivating experience"

I’ll just keep this short and simple. Our guide Paolo was amazing! We booked the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum tour. Everything went according to plan, we started at the designated time sharp!

Our guide Paolo was very charismatic and his stories were very captivating. His whole concept of the info was amazing, it wasn’t something like throwing you a bunch of facts and names it was taking you down to memory lane and making you feel like you were there 🙂

At the end he also gave us just general tips on other amazing things to do while in Rome. Highly recommended!
