Try it for SURRREEEE !!!!
Marina was our guide. She was fantastic! She was so informative in a very entertaining way. We loved it! Touring the underground was fascinating and well worth the additional fee. The Roman Forum was beyond expectation. This tour is a must!
Tour guide had expert knowledge about the Colosseum and Roman Forum and was very passionate about ancient Roman history.
Our tour guide, Dario was a great story teller and made the Collosseum and Ancient Roman forums come alive - no boring facts here! Thanks for an entertaining tour Dario.

Doing what: Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour
Despite the weather being miserable the tour guide was enthusiatic and very upbeat keeping the tour in high spirits. The infomation provided was very indepth and i loved the details provided of how the roman forum would have looked in times past
The tour was fabulous! I was not expecting to see the Roman Forum as well so that was a very nice bonus. Highly recommend.
My family w/ 2 kids (13 and 6 y/o) had a wonderful time touring the Colosseum (underground and upper levels) and Roman Forum. Our guide Barbara from Vitality Tours was fabulous. She had both kids mesmerized with stories and historical facts. Though it was expensive, Barbara guiding us was worth it!
Fantastic tour! Our guide was great, friendly, spoke English and very knowledgeable. My partner and I particularly enjoyed the Roman Forum.
Highly recommended. This tour provides an excellent overview of Rome's most famous sights including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Trevi Fountain (currently under restoration), and the Pantheon.
This was an awesome tour! It was very exciting to be able to view the underground chambers and learn about what went on during those times. The views from the upper tier were spectacular! Included was a tour of the Roman Forum. There is so much history and was really impressed by the tour guides!
This was a fabulous, informative tour providing great insight and historical perspective of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Since the tour started early, we were able to enter the Colosseum before the general public. Starting with the underground chambers, you got a good feeling of what it was to be a gladiator like all those years ago. Our guide, Roxanne, was born in Rome so was able to provide a lot of details and history of this area. The view from the third tier was just spectacular. Not only of the Colosseum itself but also of the city, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. I loved Roxanne's 'magic book' which showed what you saw standing today plus an overlay of what it probably looked like years ago. It was incredible! Definitely a tour worth taking!
I was luck to have Anjelica as my tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable on roman history. Doing the VIP tour and early in the morning meant we didn't have to fight the crowds. Besides the Colosseum we also visited the Palatine hill and Roman Forum. A most enjoyable day.
This was a fascinating tour - especially the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Our guide was fantastic. She took some time at the beginning of the tour to learn all our names (there were 16 of us and she referred to personal relevant aspects of most of us as we went round). Very impressed at this.This was an extremely entertaining and educational tour. To see the inside of the Colosseum in reality after having only viewed pictures, mainly of the outside I may say, was a real eye opener and to become aware of the role and importance of the Forum was equally thought provoking. Our afternoon tour took in sites such as the Spanish steps, the Trevi fountain (under renovation at this time) the Pantheon and Piazza Navona etc. was also very interesting. One recommendation: do the organised tour if you can as it's far superior to walking round with a guide book with its limited detail. Viator have not given us anything less than well informed and knowledgeable guides and we would thoroughly recommend them, Undoubtedly 10/10.
This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, the Colosseum, and the surrounding areas. She not only told us about the history of those areas but whats happened to them since, how they've come to such ruins, and what the city is now trying to do to restore them. When you get to the Colosseum your tour guide stays with you but another tour guide (with the keys to the underground chambers and upper tier) takes over the tour. He was fantastic as well. He was able to give you so much detail that you could envision how the Colosseum would have looked back when the gladiators were fighting main stage. Overall we couldn't have been luckier with our tour guides. You could tell they really loved what they did and enjoyed sharing it with other people.
