Our guide was sweet and friendly but there seemed to be either a lack of knowledge or perhaps practice working with kids. I was disappointed that we walked away from the tour without much more knowledge about the Colosseum.

My child loved it. She remembered the information she learned from this tour throughout our trip in Rome. Great experience.
