My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the Colosseum, and the tour was relaxed, knowledgeable of the facts about what we saw, and had a great sense of humor! I would suggest that the guide have everyone meet up at the lower entrance of the Metro station, instead of the hill atop of the entrance. I was confused about where to meet, and had it not been for a tour guide who recognized the name of my group, I might have missed the tour. Nonetheless, everything worked out and we all had a great time! It was amazing to see the Colosseum in real life, and I have wonderful photos to help recall and cherish my memories of my Roman trip for the rest of my life. Thank you, Viator, for making the online booking process so effortless, and I will definitely utilize your service again in the near future.

My Review

I enjoyed this tour very much, and I thought the American tour guide was most knowledgeable about the sites we saw. I like that Viator offers evening tours for the those people who are checking in late at their hostel/hotel, or those who want to rest before embarking upon a half-day walking tour. The one thing about the tour that disappointed me was that we were not able to take fotos of the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I clearly recall someone asking the tour guide (Jeanette?) at the office if we could take fotos and she said, "Yes." However, it was not until we were well into the tour when she informed us that we could take fotos of all the artwork EXCEPT the Sistine Chapel. I found her failure to tell us this information sooner was deceptive on her part. Aside from this infraction, I enjoyed the tour very much!
