Our Guide, Alessandro Nasonte. was excellent. He obviously has a love for the City of Rome, as well as for history. He brought his own tablet to share pictures of meaningful things to add even a greater experience to the magnificent ruins and surroundings that were in front of us. His tour added so much more than if we had simply walked the grounds ourselves. He was able to answer questions that were asked of him. Our guide kindly was careful with the few people that had to be careful of too many flights of stairs. Make sure to wear your most comfortable walking shoes though because the tour lasts about three hours and covers a lot of ground. Job well done by our tour guide and by Get Your Guide. Suggestion: plan to arrive at the meeting place early because parking and finding the place to meet takes longer than you’d think. Also, bring sunscreen. Our guide was kind enough to share his with the few that needed it during our walking tour.

The meeting point was easy to find. Our guide was very nice, lively and above all very knowledgeable. Despite the bad weather, it was a very good lead. She responded to every question and was considerate of an older gentleman who was only able to cope with stress to a limited extent.

Sarah was a great guide. Compassionate and appreciated her willingness to move the group into the shade when possible. Funny and very knowledgeable. She came off as a former history teacher with a wealth of information. The tour was informative and interesting. We came on a hot day so definitely pack water. There are a few fountains with cold drinking water to refill your canisters. Would recommend.
