Very nice guide. Smart young man. The equipment was glitchy and took time to get going. Kids enjoyed and it gives you a good view of the past. Very basic VR. Great customer support and team.

In case you want to put up with Rome”s culture and history, you definitelly should start with Collosseum guided tour with 3D virtual Reality experience! It was a great adventure so you can get a better understanding of ancient times.
