    Sierra was fantastic, she was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot. She was friendly and navigated us through crowds with no issues. Don’t hesitate to book this tour, we would do all of our tours with Sierra if we could. Thank you for everything!

    The perfect private tour to Rome’s most famous sites

    Serena was an excellent tour guide. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable but she navigated us through both sites avoiding crowds as best a possible. Having this intimate tour allowed us to really learn about what we were seeing and easily ask questions. Don’t look anywhere else - best value out there.

    We loved our experience touring & would highly recommend that you book this experience rather than go solo or with a big group. Insanely knowledgeable & full of insight on ancient times. We loved every minute

    Impressive Tour of So Much History -- Wow
    Caitlin_W
    , Mar 2022
    Serena met us at the metro stop by the Colosseum and, thank goodness, didn't leave when we were 10 minutes late. Instead, she calmed us down from our hurrying and smoothly handled everything we needed to do to get inside the Colosseum. Serena is brilliant. She seemed to be able to answer, in detail, our most random questions. She knew secret entrances into sites so we could skip the line. She was able to give us nuanced and unexpected looks into what life might have been life in Ancient Rome and how the Middle Ages used the grand structures of the past to eek out existence in hard times. The tour is extensive -- so bring your thinking caps and walking shoes. We were swirling by the end of it, but in that good way you want to be when visiting one of the most historically important cities on the planet. I highly recommend, but also show up fed and rested -- this tour is amazing and will leave you primed for the best sleep of your life.

    Our tour guide Serena made our colosseum and Ancient Rome tour more exciting due to her knowledge. Everything was taken to the smallest history detail that it fascinating to take us bake in time as we were experiencing what we saw. A guided tour is the way to go. 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We had an incredible experience with Serena. She was an excellent historian of not only the Colosseum, but the great history of Rome. She answered all of our questions and shared a lot of insights on the tour. 10-out-of-10 recommend!

    Our tour guide was Serena and she was incredibly knowledgeable and personable and you could instantly tell that Rome is her passion. Our family learned a lot of interesting things about the Coliseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. It was awesome, thanks to Serena. Highly recommend.

    We were very happy with this tour. Our guide, I think Nadia,gave us a lot of information we would not have gotten on a regular tour. We were able to cover a lot of ground by omitting the lines. When you are limited on time, this is the way to go!

    We really enjoyed listening and talking with Serena as part of this tour. She's so knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions without hesitation. This tour is truly skip the line as well, which was hugely helpful given the long lines at the Colosseum. Highly recommend!

    An Excellent Way to Spend a Morning in Rome

    Our guide, Serena, was very knowledgeable. It was a relaxed tour, based on our priorities and expectations. We also had a beautiful day - not Serena's responsibility - but it helped very much. It is a long walk, but we took our time. She left us in the Colosseum to explore a little more on our own, A wonderful morning.

    We had a private Tour with Serena in August 2019. She was fantastic. So had so much knowledge and explained everything. She spoke with enthusiasm and was so friendly. Serena answered any questions we had, it was a very hot day when we did our tour and I needed to stop and rest a number of times, she was always very patient with this. I highly recommend Enjoy Rome and especially Serena as a guide.

    This tour was SOOO worth it! We saw so many tours with dozens of people. This tour was just the two of us and our guide. She went at our pace, answered any and all of our questions, and was sooo knowledgeable! Would give it a higher rating if I could!!!

    Absolutely Delightful!

    Serena absolutely made the visit memorable and entertaining for us. Colosseum was crowded and many parts of it under restoration. It was hot and humid that day and I was worried about the kids not having a good time. We would not have enjoyed it if it wasn’t Serena explaining the meaningful details behind many parts of the colosseum that we otherwise would’ve skipped. Serena is a PHD in archaeology who actually worked on the colosseum and her knowledge made the trip fun and interesting even for my 11 year old and her older siblings. Absolutely made the trip memorable for us. Thank you Serena!
