We had one guide for the Vatican and another for the Colosseum. Both were really friendly, went at a casual pace to allow everyone to see the sights and were extremely knowledgeable. The only negative was that we still had to wait in line for the Colosseum, although we waited in the first line and skipped the second. I got the impression this was unusual and we would normally have skipped both lines.

My partner and I took part in the Rome in a day tour yesterday and thought it was brilliant Maria had an incredible amount of knowledge about the city it seemed everything we passed she knew something about. And any question anyone had she had the answer too. She was passionate about the history of her city and that really shone through. And Dario in the afternoon was fantastic also he only managed to scratch the surface in the museum but seemed to know off hand where anything and everything was and again very passionate about everything he was showing us. If you attempt to see Rome with no tour guide you’d have to be mad if your spending your hard earned cash on a holiday here go the extra mile to have one of these people tell you the stories of there city it’s 100% worth the money!

Outstanding! Both the morning and afternoon tour guides were excellent. Lots of walking and stairs and listening, which we loved but isn't for everyone. We had two families with young children as young as 3-4 and they said in hindsight they would have done a half-day tour - too much for young children.

My husband and I loved the Rome in a day tour. The Colosseum was fabulous, the forum was interesting, the pantheon was amazing and so was the Vatican. I strongly suggest this tour if you are in Rome. Best thing is you will be able to walk off the delicious food here in Rome. We loved the first guide, Maria if you get her you are in for a treat.

We booked the early morning skip the line tour before we arrived in Rome. Our guide, Maristella, was excellent. A great historian, with lots of great stories. If you like history and art, this is the perfect tour for you! We would highly recommend your services, thank you!

Our morning tour was led by Chiara, a high energy, an enthusiastic young woman with a great sense of humour and a thorough knowledge of history. We visited the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Forum. Chiara showed us colour pictures of what the ruins would have looked like in their day and this helped us see what was missing. We only had 8 in our group, a perfect number to manoeuvre through the crowds. Our afternoon tour was with about 20 people, led also by a very knowledgeable guide who explained the sights we were seeing at the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.
