This full day tour is really amazing and perfect for people who don't have much time in Rome (we were only there for 3 days). The morning part (Colosseum + surrounding) was perfect and the tour guide was very professional. And so was the lunch (was way more than expected and in tasted really good). Just that it was hard to hear the tour guide during the Vatican Museum tour (was very crowded and tour guide voice was not clear) but it was end of the day so everyone was tired already :P
