Our guide was Nadezhda and the excursion was unforgettable!
A great excursion, very eventful, spent more than 3 hours with a guide, learned and watched a lot, I recommend it to everyone, the excursion is worth its money, very beautiful photos turned out.
Guide Elena is not only a professional, but also a very charming lady !! Were on 07 March. Excellent knowledge of the material, interesting legends and facts! There are many nuances that you cannot read about so easily in books. The group included a girl of 12-13 years old. Elena was able to find an approach and interest both the child and the adults! Save
This is probably the way to present the history of the Majestic Ruins. Nadezhda, reconstructing in our imagination the amazing architecture of Ancient Rome, began with a visit to the Forum, the Palatine Hill and ended her story in the Flavian amphitheater (aka Colosseum))). Thank you, Nadezhda, for your artistic manner, immersion in the material and inspiration.

Great excursion! The guide (unfortunately forgot her name) told the history of Ancient Rome in an easy, casual manner. Even children 4-7 years old listened to it with pleasure! I recommend!
Good evening! Guide Olga took us to ancient Rome, possession of information, a well-organized program and books with pictures, as it was for many centuries in the past) I was also very pleased with the entrance to the Colosseum without a queue! Didn’t notice how 3 hours flew by! Thanks a lot!
Our tour was led by Olga. I would like to thank Olga for the incredible story that we heard. Each place seemed to come to life in her stories, very exciting? Brightly, emotionally, not overloaded with dates, which you rarely remember anyway. The picture books Olga had with her helped to understand how this or that place looked many centuries ago. I was especially struck by the huge queue at the entrance to the Colosseum, which we easily passed through the VIP entrance. Therefore, I can safely recommend this excursion and the guide Olga.

Busy times The Colosseum is very crowded on Bank Holidays such as Easter, May Day and Christmas, as well as in summer. The only way to avoid this is to plan your trip to Rome during the low season (November to March). If you are in Rome at holiday times and decide to visit the Colosseum, your patient and positive attitude will help the guide, and indeed the whole group, enormously. We will do our best to ensure that waiting times are as short as possible, and the tour as comfortable as it can be, whilst at the same time keeping it interesting.
