The tour was excellent. Skipping the long lines and being taken to the underground chambers and upper tier made this tour memorable. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable with a sense of humor. My grandchildren (ages 10 to 15 ) listed this Colosseum tour as one of their favorites. I would recommend a morning tour during the hot summer months.
Our trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius was one of the highlights of our trip. There were 10 of us of which 5 were children ranging in ages from 10 to 15. They listed this tour and the one to the Colosseum as their favorite.
It sounded like it would be a very long day, but the spacious bus wih AC made the ride very pleasant. We had two wonderful guides who were knowledgeable, and so efficient. They gave us a short break for snacks, shopping,etc. when we got closer to Pompeii.
We were met by a special tour guide at Pompeii. I had been there 35 years ago, and was pleased to see the improvements and how much more there was to see. Our children were intrigued.
We were then taken to a restaurant for a delicious lunch. Loved that we were never rushed. Boarded the bus and headed for Vesuvius. The family hiked to the top of Vesuvius and were thrilled with this accomplished. We were dusty and hot, but were taken back to the rest stop for snacks, cleaning up, and shopping.
We got back to Rome about 8 PM. It was a memorable experience.
Viator made booking this tour painless. No glitches, delays, uncertainty. I booked other tours with them.
I can't recommend this Skip the Line tour enough. When our taxi dropped us off at the Vatican, I was dismayed to see the line that seemed endless and about 10' wide. We had no sooner stepped out of the taxi when we were approached by guides telling us where to find our tour group. It was incredibly well organized.
Our group was not large and we started promptly as scheduled. We walked to the front of the line and went right in. The tour itself covered what we wanted to see and it was amazingly comprehensive. Excellent tour guide.
Viator has tours to fit everyone's needs and time constrictions.

I am sold on Skip the Line tours. Lines can be interminable during the summer. By booking the early tour, it wasn't crowded and much cooler.
This tour was more independent. We enjoyed an informal talk by a Beefeater who shared many anecdotes with us. Much of what we saw was self-explanatory. Our children enjoyed being able to roam around at their leisure.
