This was a great tour and well worth the money. Skipping the security and turnstile lines for both the Colosseum and the Forum saved us a great deal of time standing in the hot sun and this made the tour worthwhile on its own.
However, all the incredible information our excellent guide, Vincenzo gave us brought the Colosseum to life for us. He had so much knowledge of the time and he was interesting and fun. A great tour that I highly recommend.
Great tour guide and memorable tour. SKIP HOP ON HOP OFF TOUR...it is overbooked and nothing works well. Save your money and take the metro and/or a cab.
Fabrizio is a great guide, he shared his knowledge very well. Standing in the arena, visiting the underground chambers and walking to the top tier was a fantastic experience.
Great guide made the tour superb
This tour was amazing!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us what things were like when the Colosseum and Palatine Hill were bustling. The guide was very concerned when someone left the group without telling him and he did all he could to try to find the person. It slowed us down a bit, but we still saw everything on the tour and had a wonderful experience.
Our guide's name was Serafina, and she was wonderful. We really enjoyed her explanations of the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. She also explained that the Roman water fountains around the city contain drinkable water and are free to anyone. This was very helpful on the hot, sunny days!! The Underground Tour of the Colosseum was amazing and very interesting to learn more about that section of the history.
Excellent all round.
Excellent tour, well worth paying for skipping the line as the queue was long! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. A must for anybody visiting Rome, after all who doesnt want to see the Colosseum! Highly recommended!
The guides were knowledgable and full of information. My husband and I had a wonderful time and certainly would recommend the trip to anyone.
Omg, what a tour. Our guide was arheologyst Alexandro and we could not imagine a better guide. So much history and detailed explanations. Organization of tour was superb also. Our tour was even longer due to bathroom break delay and Alexandro did not rush us at all. This tour was just spectacular.
Perfect, very knowledgeable guide, amazed by info she gave us and kept us upbeat, she was very happy to be there and to share history with us, Thanks Sarah
Up, down and all around!!
This is the only way to see the coliseum !!
Our tour guides were great -so much information. I was only half listening because I was in such awe of what I was seeing.
An excellent tour with a very good guide. Very hot in the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill but water bottles can be filled from a fountain in the Hill. This was an early afternoon tour on a hot May Day 30 degrees C that would have benefitted from the cooler visit to the Colosseum being programmed before that to the outdoor Forum. Thoroughly recommend this small party tour to include the underground chambers and floor of the arena.
Both tour guides were excellent. This tour lived up to our expectations and more. Would certainly recommend it to beat the crowds, but also to gain an amazing insight into history during this time and see places not normally open to the public.
The guide was amazing and she had in depth knowledge about the history and the value of this monument. She brought it alive with her stories and titbits of information.
Wonderful tour with very knowledgeable English speaking guide, Laura. Best to do in the morning due to heat later in the day.
Best organised informative trip
For the Colosseum Tour our guide Sara was very good. Very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting with her fun facts.
Excellent tour. The guide's knowledge was excellent. The radios were good as we could hear what he said.
Good Experince n very Informative Guide.
This tour was amazing!
Fascinating walking tour of the colosseum and the forum. Our tour guide was informative and explained a lot of things out of the norm. A great visit
It was great. The guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable.
The first part was the guided tour around the Colosseum, Forum and Palatino - our guide was experienced archaeologist Mariella ? - was the favourite tour of all my time in Rome. This morning tour was really a highlight of my stay - the commentary was excellent and fascinating and it really brought history to life. I would give this morning tour the highest marks possible. The afternoon walking tour was a good introduction to the main tourist areas of Rome, though perhaps more aimed at those wanting a shopping experience of Rome. But anyway, it included a visit to the Pantheon and there were free ice-creams. It'd give the afternoon walk 4 stars. A great double-tour to kick off any trip to Rome.
