The tour guide, Claudia, was excellent! Couldn't ask for a better guide, she is an archeologist and told us everything about the entire area. The excessive rain is the only thing that put a damper on the tour, but because Claudia was such a great guide, it was still a great experience.

Our tour guide, Saraphina sp? was very knowledgeable and helped to bring the Colosseum to life. We loved the ability to skip the lines, go down to the dungeons privately with our mall group and get up into the top tier of the Colosseum. Really enjoyed it.

This was a great tour. I found it more interesting than the Vatican tour. Lots of history. I would suggest doing a morning tour. I can imagine it being rather hot later in the day. David was our guide and he was great. We actually requested David because he did such a great job with the tour of the Vatican the day before. Meeting direction are a little confusing but our cab driver knew exactly where we needed to go and dropped us off right in front of the meet-up area.

The tour was excellent. The guide was well informed and spoke English very well. Highly recommend this tour. Unfortunately, my wife became very exhausted and we had to leave the tour when we got to the Forum. No fault of the tour. Lots of walking and lots of step in the Colosseum.

Thought the tour was very well structured and very informative - in particular our guide on the day was excellent. She really knew her stuff and made the whole experience very enjoyable. She went out of her way to eliminate the wait in line to enter the Colosseum and I really appreciated that as would have taken a long time to get in. Only recommendation is to speak with Colosseum to see if you can arrange to skip the line everytime as not ideal having to rely on chance
