      We enjoyed a fantastic outing with our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Andrada. She was full of interesting things to share about ancient life and historical events related to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. It was both insightful and fun, and I heartily recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.

      Our guide Renata took us to ancient Rome, so that the temperatures of over 30 ° were no longer that bad. She had a lot of knowledge and you could tell that she loves her work. However, we were only a small group of 4 men. Renate managed to enchant us so that one no longer saw the ruins, but heard the cheering of the people in the arena or stood in front of a temple and saw the real size of the buildings. Very interesting tour.

      We loved Dennas! He was smart and funny and very engaging. We are a family of four and the way he interacted with my 8-year old son was wonderful! Dennas kept him engaged and interested. Our 3 hours flew by. I've been to both the Colosseum and the Forum before without a tour guide, and I really feel the experience with a guide like Dennas really enhances the experience. My only suggestion would be to get audio that has a longer range, so that we can be more than a few feet away from the guide without losing connection.
