Our tour guide Maria was hugely knowledgeable about the areas visited. The tour was a nice balance of interesting facts and time to appreciate and take photos, although we were moving through it all at a decent pace.
Three hours is quite long, and while you may enjoy the colosseum portion without a guide, you definitely need someone to guide you through the Roman forum and palpatine hill as it’s hard to figure it out just by looking at the ruins. Our guide had excellent photos showing what each building would have looked like to help us imagine things better.
Definitely recommend a guided tour - there was also a nice advantage where because the tour group was running another language tour simultaneously, our group got a free upgrade to the colosseum floor alongside theirs!
