Francesca, was our tour guide an she was awesome, totally made the tour worthwhile. Being able to go to the underground chambers an upper tier was a great hands on experience. Highly recommend this tour you won't be disappointed.
Ancient Rome part of the tour was good. Would recommend to go early morning as the sun was very harsh. Tour guide had a few English translation difficulties so at times a little hard to understand her. Overall informative and we'll worth while as the tour guide could show us pictures of what used to be there which I don't think we would have fully understood without her.
Colosseum, underground and upper, fabulous. A different guide to the Roman ruins. Tried her best with English. Really informative and task orientated. Seeing the Colosseum from way up high and below ground a must.
My family (6 adults) took this tour and really enjoyed it. Our two guides were Fabulous, well informed, and friendly, and very enthusiastic about their subjects, which was contagious. The incredible history and engineering associated with this site is not to be missed. We all highly recommend it!
We are a family of four (kids age 18 and 14) and we all thought this tour was excellent. Our tour guide was Verena and she was interesting, knowledgeable and friendly. She moved at a good pace, not too fast or slow. The VIP access to the underground and upper tiers at the Colosseum made this tour outstanding. We zipped passed incredibly long lines for public access and spent time in areas with only our group.
The only way to do a tour of the Colosseum! This was awesome! We were given so much "inside" information on the Colosseum by Irene. I was not sure if seeing the lower area and upper area of the Colosseum was worth the extra money when I booked the tour but I can definitely tell you it is worth it. It is one of those things you will probably only tour once in your lifetime and it was exciting to be entering where the gladiators entered and get a true understanding of the type and amount of work that went into pulling off a great performance at the Colosseum.
Ancient Rome and Colosseum was one of three tours we booked through Viator for our recent visit to Italy in June 2014. What a great experience! Each of the tours was professionally organized with clear instructions as to where to meet, what to expect, etc. The guide for the Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour was very knowledgeable and articulate about the area. If you are planning a trip to Italy, I highly recommend considering Viator.
Brilliant tour. Our guide Mauritzio was really knowledgeable and brought the Roman Forum and the Colosseum to life. The underground chambers and the upper tier vists were well worth the extra cost.
This tour was amazing. Our Guide, Sev, was informative, witty, and really made the entire experience something we will never forget.
I recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to get the "behind the scenes" feel of the Colosseum, you won't regret a minute of it! You will enjoy every minute.
Our guide was exceptional! So passionate about sharing his knowledge with us. Enjoyed so much!
It was worth every cent. Yes, I can buy my tickets early and skip part of the line yet this is still even quicker. Our guide was very knowledgeable and he specialize in studying Roman history. We love being able to go through both the upper and lower levels and learn the most important aspects the sites. My only criticism was that the time changed from 8:30 to 9:30am without an email. We were glad that a representative was there to let us know.
While we were not able to go onto the colosseum floor, our guide took us to places others were not allowed and gave us a excellent education of the history and special insights. This is a tour well worth the price.
Great tour! Thorough tour of Forum and exciting to view the Underground chambers and Upper Tier. Our guide, Francesca, was excellent.
