Both our guides spoke fluent English and were very knowledgeable and great at explaining all the things we were seeing . The pace of the tour was a bit rushed at the Forum since our guide had to turn us over to another guide at the Colosseum. She mentioned several times she preferred to be the guide for both locations and I agree .my suggestion is to advice tour guests to go to toilet BEFORE the tour starts since there are limited options once in the tour .

I’m so happy I booked the guided tour. Both tour guides were very informative and I highly suggest the underground option for the colosseum as it gave us a more thorough look into its history. One of the other great benefits to the tour was not having to wait in the long lines/queues for tickets or to get in. I would highly recommend this specific tour. The weather was perfect (end of October), but bring water!

My husband and I were hesitant to book a tour for the colosseum… boy were we glad we did! Andrada was amazing and did a great job detailing the history of the colosseum and palatine hill. We weren’t able to do the underground tour which was a bummer but it was amazing to stand where the gladiators would have stood. I would 100% recommend doing this tour as I walked away truly appreciating the Roman history and how intricate their lives were… the colosseum (and surrounding structures) were for more than just “fighting”.
