The day tour was split into 2 days for participants, which was a good fit in the end. One day we visited the Collesseum and the Roman Forum. The next day the Vatican. On both tours we were guided through the respective stories by very good guides, and we were able to learn a lot of interesting things. Both guides were great, the tours were really fun.

Very good reception by the agency. We did not regret having taken a guide, otherwise we would have missed out on the interpretation of the works. The beauty of the place is incredible, but the history is just as important. The guide was passionate. On the other hand, when you take the handset, the time between the 2 visits is really just to get from one point to another. We barely had time to gobble up a sandwich. Would recommend but be prepared for a busy day.

The tours themselves were great! The company hosting the tours was...less great. We made sure to get there the 25 minutes early and thank god we did. They did not have our tour purchase on any list so they ended up upgrading us to a semi-private group for the Vatican (which was awesome!). Our guide was excellent but she didn't explain anything until we were already through security at the Vatican. Then, in the afternoon. we went to the Colosseum to meet at 1pm and no one was there. The summer hours state 1pm and winter hours 3pm. Well, we called and they said the tour started at 2pm. Very confusing. But our guide, once again, was fantastic and the Roman Forum portion was really fascinating. Recommend the tour but the company could do with some organization improvements!
