What shall I see

Walk in the footsteps of giants on this guided tour through the heart of the Roman Empire. Travel back in time, embraced by 360 degrees of jaw dropping Roman architecture. Learn the history behind it all, from the minute to the magnificent. Pause to contemplate the genius that took the Colosseum from concept to reality in 70/80 AD, centuries before the advent of modern engineering. Once the most famous meeting place in the world, the amphitheater is estimated to have once held 50,000/80,000 spectators. Your Gray Line pass allows you to skip hours of long lines to enter the Colosseum directly. Once inside, breathe in the bloody past of the monument, brought to life by your passionate, expert guide.

Standing for nearly two millennia, the structure has been a symbol of both glory and scorn, serving vastly different purposes over the course of history. Just outside, you'll see the magnificent Arch of Constantine. Continuing the walking tour, discover the excavated ruins of the Roman Forum archaeological site, where many structures remain intact to this day. For a city founded in 753 BC, this is no small feat. Continue exploring the breathtaking Palatine Hill, ending your tour with a deeper connection to the history of Rome and a strong foundation of knowledge to continue exploring Rome. We will bid you farewell to continue exploring the area on your own or return to your hotel.

I liked the tour, but in the Roman Forum we didn't visit Palantino-hill from where the best view of the forum is possible. That disappointed me and afterwards it was not possible to re-enter without purchasing another ticket to enter. Also, the radios used in this tour were very bad! My son and I continuously had trouble understanding the spoken information, as other radios kept breaking up our connection. We did another tour and the radios there didn't have this quality issue, even though that place was more crowded. So replace the radio's! And the meeting point was totally not specified in the received e-mail. It stated about hotels in the area, but not an exact location. This left me sending a mail to your organisation the day before. Please state exact address where to meet in these mails! Also, when we got to the meeting-place it was chaos. It was totally not clear where to meet, which forced me to go from group to group and aks if they were from your organisation in a crowd of over 100 people. When we finally got to our group, we were put in a Portuguese-group, even though we requested the English one. I then had to state my point to the guide which seemingly was out of patience (at that time of the morning already!) and pointed to the other side of the plaza to go to the other group, instead of taking me there. Not customer-friendly and this left me not happy about my choice to take this tour at your organisation. If things are corrected and changed for the better, I would recommend this tour from your organisation. Otherwise not.

I noticed that in your website the meeting point is correctly indicated, my suggestion is to insert also the information for the meeting point on the voucher too, so the customer has it in his/her hand and clarify that our staff has pink t-shirt. Actually the customer mentioned in his email “the meeting point was totally not specified in the received e-mail”
Related to the headset quality, we have never received any complaint so far, however the customer could had always request another one to be replaced.
The other point that you claims, cannot be really verified since the place of course is crowded even though, we do this tour on daily basis since years and if a guest booked an English tour how come that he had accepted to make the visit in Portuguese language, are we sure that he went to the right group.

However my suggestion is to indicated as per the picture attached, that our staff has pink t-shirts.

Yes there was a misunderstanding regarding the pick-up point now we have made it clearer in order this avoid this situation in the future.
