The tour was terrific.

It was raining the day of our tour. The company called us ahead of time to work on rescheduling the tour. Turned out we were able to reschedule for a little later in the day. Marie was very knowledgeable and allowed us to set the pace of the tour since my boyfriend and I were the only ones on the tour. In every site we went to Maria took the lead to make sure we moved to the front of the line. This gave us more time to look at the sites and hear the history instead of standing in lines waiting to get in. Maria pointed out so many of the details that my boyfriend and I would have simply walked by or spent time looking in a guidebook and trying to figure out what we were looking at. The next time we travel I will be using get your guide services to help me explore the new places we will be going. Well worth the money.

Such an interesting and knowledgeable guide!

It's really worth paying the extra to see the colosseum through the eyes of a knowledeable guide. No distractions - you can make the itinerary your own (important since there's so much to see). Thoroughly recommend.
