Words cannot express the wonder and awe of the Colosseum. Fabrizio was our tour guide and he spent four hours providing deep knowledge of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. He was very nice and pleasant, and allowed for lots of questions and photos. He ensured all group members remained together and made everyone feel very welcome. There is no other way to see the Colosseum and Roman Forum, especially if you have little time to spend in Rome. My husband and I would not have learned or seen nearly as much on our own in the same time frame! Excellent tour company and guide!!!
Amazing!! If your a history buff like me, go on Viator and get the VIP upgraded tour. It's all skip the line and includes upper tiers and underground chambers. I've always been a massive fan of Rome and the Colosseum and was so happy to be there yesterday! Our tour guide Barbara was very good, however, I knew everything she told us, from the gladiators to the battle ships, to the Vestal Virgins to Romulus etc. to me, it proved she knew her stuff and left me thinking, maybe I should become a tour guide! My partner was equally impressed with how much we both knew about it. Very, very highly recommend!
Forum was a lot more then I thought it was.
Only way to see the Colosseum - a guided tour to reserved areas away from the huge crowds.
We highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your stay in Rome if at all possible. Our guide at the Colosseum was absolutely amazing. The knowledge of the history of the area and presentation of the information was spectacular. Although this was the first tour of our trip we had booked several during our stay we later realized that the tour company in charge provides this type of experience on all of their offerings. Our afternoon walking tour guide was just as impressive and provided interesting information around every corner. It was great to get a basic feel for the layout and location of some of the major tourist destinations so that we would be able to locate them easier on our own. We ended up revisiting all of the tour stops on our own throughout the following days of our vacation just to experience and enjoy what they each had to offer.
This was a great tour. We were able to get into the Colosseum quickly and avoid the lines. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly.
This tour was great! I would definitely recommend a tour around Ancient Rome and the Colosseum.
a real passionate guide, she was italian but fluent in english without harsh italian accent, she was extremely knowledgeable because she was an archeologist ! mentioned amazing things about Rome, Colosseum, paletine hills and roman forum and she told us interesting stories about how they did their rituals in these buildings. Try it for SURRREEEE !!!!
Our experience on this tour was wonderful! My husband and I learned so much and we were pleasantly surprised at how much our guide knew about the history and how interesting he made everything. Dario was a fabulous guide and he made the whole trip fun. Seeing the exclusive underground area and upper tier was also very awesome- it was a great break from the crowds. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting the full experience of the Colosseum!
Fantastic tour. Tour guide was great, very knowledgable and enthusiastic, would recommend this to anyone. Colosseum just breath taking
Colosseum and Ancient Rome tours great, very knowledgeable guide. Afternoon good also.
It was a great tour. We got an inside look at the Colosseum and a great tour of the Forum. Without this tour we would have had no idea what we were looking at or what it had been.
Tour guide had expert knowledge about the Colosseum and Roman Forum and was very passionate about ancient Roman history.

Wonderful tour and a great way to see the Colosseum - the upper tier is normally closed except with tours so that was a great treat. Our guide was great and do a very nice job.
Though the rain poured down upon us as it had not rained that hard in ten years a local told us, our guide remained professional, humorous and eager to share his knowledge and stories. Unfortunately, due to the weather, we were unable to go onto the floor of the Colosseum but that was not the fault of our guide. Our guide did everything he could to make sure we got the tour we expected under the worst of conditions.
Excellent guide with great personality and good English. Amazing range of sights in a packed itinerary. Getting in the colosseum was easy and quick. Great to see below ground
