It was a bit expensive for what was received. Plus the skip the line for the coliseum was longer than the no ticket line so it was not helpful.

Guide very interesting and had sense of humor. He knew facts very well. Weather was hot so at times was uncomfortable but we cannot stop the weather. Otherwise enjoyable.
