Ask for Igor. Igor is quite possibly the most knowledgable guide Ive ever had in Rome. His stories about ancient Rome flow beautifully with the Colosseum tour and there wasnt a single question that appeared to stump him. He was excited, enthusiastic, funny, but most importantly, knowledgable. The tour starts at the Colosseum and ends at the Forum. Youll see the various levels of the Colosseum before ending on the floor of it, finding out which of the urban legends are true and which are false! Youll understand and marvel how the ancient Romans were actually engineering geniuses and figure out who exactly is responsible for the European trend of paying for access to restrooms. Money doesnt stink.
Excellent tour. Julia was our guide. She was excellent and worked hard to make dure we got the most out of tge tour. Self-guided and electronic audio guide tours are no comparison to these well organized, skip the line tours by expert local guides. Good value for money.
Tour and guide were very good. Due to many factors, the crowds that day were worse than normal and our guide navigated the crowds well.
Ancient Rome is inspiring and a marvel to appreciate. Our guide did an excellent job explaining the history of the ruins we visited and embellished her talk with annecdotes and artists conceptions of what the ruins may have originally looked like. We would take the tour agian to learn even more about the ruins, etc.

This was exactly the tour we were looking for: behind the scenes access to parts of the colosseum that are not typically on view to other groups! It was phenomenal walking out onto the floor of the colosseum. We had a good 15 minutes there to get oriented and look around and take pics... stunning views from this spot. And the underground chambers were amazing as well. We went with a guide from the colosseum who had to use keys to access the areas we visited... it felt very special! Our viator guide for the day was Elizabetta and she was very organized, friendly and knowledgeable. After our tour at the colosseum she escorted the group to the Roman Forum, which is stunning. It's a massive site so we zipped through this at a decent pace but after the formal tour was complete we had free time to wander... and we stayed an additional two hours to explore. Well worth the price of this tour!
This was a brilliant tour.Our Guide Guiseppe hope that is the right spelling! was very helpful and well informed and took the time to allow the persons of a certain age to rest and for everbody to refill water bottles in what was a long trip through the area. He explained everything very well and with a good deal of patience as naturally there were a lot of questions. We would thoroughly recommend booking this trip in advance.
The tour was fantastic. Fabio was very, very knowledgeable and excited to teach us about the history of the Colosseum. I absolutely loved the tour and would recommend it to everyone.
We thought this tour was great. Our guide was informative and taught really well. Fascinating to find out more about ancient Rome and what it was like and to understand what we were looking at. Would recommend.
Better in person than expected. The tour was fantastic, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and The underground chambers and skipping the lines well worth the additional expense. Highly recommended.
This tour was excellent in no small part due to the very good guide, Barbra. She was excellent, across all the details, history and facts behind the sites. She also controlled the group well including a couple of members who needed some control. The instructions on where to meet were well set out and let us arrive in time for the departure and without any hassle. The walk through the Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill was sufficiently long to enable you to get an understanding of these monuments and their importance to our history and culture. I have done a previous tour of these sites and this was a far better tour and I would highly recommend it.
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and patient. I learned so much that had to do with the history of Rome, which could be applied to sites I saw later during my time in the eternal city. Worth every penny.
Wonderfully insightful tour from a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide!
Excellent tour, despite the rain. Our tour guide Chiara? was very friendly and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot.
Underground tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting! Nice to and #34;skip the line and #34; for entry. I was not expecting the level of detailed information we received in the forum. This tour was a highlight of our trip.
Excellent guide....his English was perfect!
This is the Rome we've read about.
Fantastic tour..Chiatra (sp?) Was awesome. Highly recommend. Wish we could have spent more time in the archeological site. Inside the Colosseum was amazing.
Everything you'd expect and more. Spending 3 hours in 2000 year old ruins can't be compared to anything else. Our guide was smart and offered great stories of what we viewed. Bring your own water as it hard to find.
Our guide Dario was fun and authentic. The Colosseum is absolutely incredible!
A great tour and a great tour guide. Barbara gave great information on each historic site we visited. I highly recommend this tour.
Had a great time with Titi, very interesting and informative.
Amazing tour. Highly recommend. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out interesting facts along the way.
Serafina was an excellent guide.....very informative and friendly. Excellent tour.
This tour was absolutely fantastic! The tour guide, Nicholaos, a George Clooney lookalike and speak-alike, by the way, was brilliant. He should be presenting BBC documentaries. He took us straight passed the miles of queues, which, in itself, makes the tour worth paying for. Without the yawn details, Nicholaos talked us intellectually through the Wonders of Ancient Rome, and the architectural/changes made to it during the societal changes of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Most certainly one of the most professional lecture/actor tours I have ever had the pleasure of accompanying. Do it! It really is worth it! And make sure your tour guide is Nicholaos!
Great to be able to skip the line the tour was great got in to see areas that general admission didn't go.
