What a great tour and tour guide. Marco was communicated with me several times in order to make some changes and to finalize tour arrangements. He was very knowledgeable and the special gate for the Colosseum tour was outstanding. There were six of us on the tour which was the highlight of our stay in Rome. I would highly recommend Marco for a tour in Rome.
