    This was the best tour we have gone on. The guide, Milena was hugely knowledgeable and informative, making the walk a complete joy. It is not cheap, but we learnt so much, and the guide communicated a great feeling of what it must have been like to be on the hill of in the

    Tour was an utter waste of money. We chose the afternoon tour to work with our schedule. It was chaotic and unprofessional the way they were figuring out who went with what guide. We got a terrible male guide, he had an extremely thick accent, and was not very understanding

    Dear Jennifer, this is Gray Line Rome's Reviews & Feedbacks Team, we just read your post and we would like to acknowledge your opinion. Thank you very much for expressing it in a candid and sincere manner, it really helps us monitor the guest experience and contributes to us being able to find better ways to improve. We appreciate your feedback about our guide, we take it very seriously, and we're sorry for the inconvenience arisen: we're sure it wasn't your guide's intent whatsoever to make you feel left behind. Our professional and experienced guides are all experts but sometimes they have to stick to a strict schedule imposed by stipulations provided by the monument's management. For this reason, they have to speed up the tour a little in order not to lose the company's priority access to the sights. That said, we would like to investigate further and trace your tour so we can share the feedback with the staff and the guide working that day. To this end, please contact us at feedbackteam@graylinerome.it providing your booking reference. Also, if you at any time want to share more detail about the positive experience of the tour you took the day after the Colosseum, please feel free to edit this post. Best regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

    We were part of a large group of 23+. Sorting everyone out at the start was a performance - hard to work out where to meet & who your guide is etc. the guide we got was ok, but was hurried and it felt like she was just reciting a script. Kept saying that we all looked tired

    Dear Guest, thanks for expressing your genuine opinion about your Colosseum Tour with us, we totally appreciate your point of view. We're sorry your tour guide failed to convey her knowledge in an enthusiastic way, but we guarantee you that all our guides are professionals and experts in their sector. We suppose tough that strict schedules and weariness can sometimes have an impact on the top-notch performances our guides are used to providing. Please accept our apologies. Small-group tours (which we also do curate, as well as private ones) are definitely a great choice, but by setting our maximum number of participants per tour at 30 people we aim to keep costs down and make the experience more affordable for everyone. Thanks and regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
