This was the best tour of Rome and the forum I've ever had. The guide paced us perfectly and there was so much to see. Amazing!
This tour was great !!!!!! I would totally recommend it . its very long but totally worth it .. its all day so I would recommend bringing a snack . especially if you did not have a big breakfast . and you are diabetic . enjoy!!!!
This was really cool to get the backstage view of the historic place. So glad my husband talked me into dong this tour!
having done the colosseum before choice this trip for the extras and was not disappointed well worth the extra money very interesting to see
Very well done. Directions to meeting point were clear and easy to follow. Headsets worked fine with no problems. Guide was very good sorry but I cannot remember his name.
This tour is a great one! Don't miss it! You will be amazed at the underground lifts and passage ways. Just think this was built 1000's of years ago. You can almost hear the thunderous crowds that packed this arena. This was by far the best out of 5 tours we took in Rome.
If you only do one tour in Rome do this one! Well worth paying the extra to go underground and to the upper tiers away from the crowds. Out guide Dorianna was amazing, as a PhD archaeologist she was a mind of information with real passion for the subject. Don't miss this tour if you are a fan of roman history.
Shannon was amazing. So enthusiastic. So knowledgable. She has probably given this tour hundreds of times yet the joy she shared was infectious. She shared art background, gave us interesting things to look for, and prepared us for what we were going to see next.
I would highly recommend her as tour guide. Thanks to her our trip was beyond memorable.
Wow is about the best word to describe this tour. I'm amazed at how the Colosseum was built back in that time. We had one main tour guide and a special guide at the actual Colosseum. They knew their history. Both were awesome. This was truly a remarkable tour. One thing I can say is there are stairs involved and lots of walking. There is an elevator but only for a very small part of the tour. It was rough on a few of the folks in the tour. I highly recommend this tour.
Tour was very nice. I'd have to say to make the most of your time I'd strongly recommend taking this tour. The Colosseum was AWESOME !!
Unbelievable tour and guide. Touring the underground of the Colosseum was the best of the best tour we took on our 22 day trip!
Absolutely worth it! I was told by my travel agent to spend a bit more and take this tour. He was right. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. although the 'meeting place' directions could have had a picture of the meeting place, I wouldn't have a 'lost' look on my face and another tour group suggested I ask and see if the other tour group up the street would be the one I was looking for. we made it to our tour group with a few minutes to spare.
This tour was well worth the money. Our guide happened to be an archeologist and the underground chambers guide, I believe is a historian. Both guides were very charming and knowledgeable. The Colosseum and Ancient Rome was amazing and with the assistance of our guides, we knew what we were looking at and can visualize the greatness and day-to-day life there once was in these places. They both showed us the most important points of interest and mentioned multiple changes to the locations throughout history. Great tour!
Definitely worth the money! Great access to area's others can't get to. Take the earliest one if you can and the place is almost empty when you get in!
Brilliant. We had visited the Colosseum before but as we were not part of a tour had not been allowed to go to the actual arena floor, down under it or up to the top levels. This was truly amazing.
The tour was fantastic. Fabrizio the guide balanced the right amount of humor, information and history. The visit to the forum, Palantine hill and hippodrome was excellent. Seeing the colosseum from below and above exceeded expectations. If you're in Rome, make this tour part of your itinerary.
Great tour guide, great tour!!!
Beware though, quite a few stairs..
I can't say enough about how wonderful this tour was. Our guide was so knowledgeable and interesting and great English! I could not have asked for more. I would not do it any other way, and would recommend it to everyone.
This was a highly informative and interesting tour! We enjoyed our tour guide as she seemed to really love her job, and had a TON of background information to share with us. It was fascinating to see the underground chambers, as well as the very top tier views. We highly recommend!
This tour was exceptional and we had such a great tour guide! She gave us so much information and we got a lot of time to explore the coliseum. The underground and uppe tier are totally worth the money!! We also spent a lot of time in the Forum.
This tour and the Colosseum were amazing. We had been on a self guided tour 2-3 years ago, and this was much better being able to do the underground and 3 floor for a different and much better tour.
Great experience. If you are only going to see the colosseum one in your life then you should see it right. This trip was it.
