Valerie was a wonderful tour guide! She was very engaging and patient with our 4 year old and allowed us to tour at our own pace with our young children. She was extremely knowledgeable and we learned a lot! She was punctual and it was easy to find the meeting spot. Would definitely recommend!

Our tour guide Anna was awesome. We were a few minutes late to the meeting point and she reached out and waited for us to arrive. When we got there she met us with a smile, which I really appreciated. It was an insanely hot August day (approx. 100 degrees Fahrenheit) and she did her best to find us cool(ish)/shaded spots to chat as we made our way through the Colosseum. We loved that we had virtually zero wait time in lines and Anna was great with the kids which made the experience much more enjoyable. Anna even stopped into the gift shop to get us a bottle of water when we really needed it and the kids got to leave with a book for a prize which they both thought was awesome. I absolutely recommend "The Tour Guy" and especially the "Private Family Colosseum & Roman Forum Tour" to anyone with kids.
