This was a good tour, it started a little later than scheduled and finished later as well but we were fine with that. Our guide for the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill was great, friendly, answered all questions and showed us all the top places. The underground Colosseum tour was awesome too and our guide for that was an actual archeologists and you cold really tell she was passionate about it. Both guides gave us so much insights that you wouldn’t learn from anywhere else it was well worth it.

Thought the tour was great! Gives good background of history. The dungeon area seemed to be shorter then the rest of our tour but good to see. Mircea was our tour guide for the second part of our booking of the Palatine Hill and he was one of the best tour guides we had had regarding background information of sites. Definitely dedicated to the history of Rome and we had a great experience!

Great guides in both the sections of the tour

Barbara for the Hill & Forum (2+approx)was informative, fantastic and lively with a group of 6. With the small group we covered a lot of ground and a wealth of information. Coliseum Dungeon section was new to us, and worth it. Extremely knowledgeable guide in a group of 24. Tours and guides were outstanding. Before tour make sure you have active communication available- ie phone , WhatsApp, email?. 2of the 3 couples had signed up for 4 pm over 2weeks before tour- then got 24 hours notices that tour time changed to 2 pm. This has to do with the dungeon section is very limited and time slots are difficult to get. Luckily I saw a what’s app message at 10am, being I was at sea before hand. Also do be there 25 minutes beforehand and use GPS/ google look for Nicotours white banner.
