This is a MUST DO tour for anyone visiting Rome...3 1/2 hours long and a lot of walking covering Palentine Hill, Roman Forum and of course the Colosseum. Our guide, Francesca was superb, she spoke excellent english and had great knowledge....she is a history teacher by profession! We were in a group of around 20 people, so not to large and everyone thoroughly enjoyed. The restricted access to areas of the Colosseum only open to guided tours is well worth the money in its self... especially up to the upper tier where the views are amazing. You must do this tour if you are planning to visit the Colosseum...just ask all the people who tried to follow us up to the upper tier and were denied access!

Very detailed tour and would recommend this to and anyone I knew that was heading to Rome. It does go for quite some time so be prepared to walk for a bit but if you really want to learn about Ancient Rome this tour is a must.

This was an outstanding tour taking you to places you would not ordinarily get the opportunity to see. Our guide was knowledgeable and humorous and had a real passion for Ancient Rome! It was also great value for money as the tour took 4.5hrs. We would highly recommend this tour!

Amazing!! I think that people should be aware of how much walking is involved in the tour, it was a surprise for myself and my family. But the guide was absolutely amazing, she knew so much and made it all very easy to understand! And to see the underground chambers and the upper tier was well worth it. Best tour I had my entire trip.

Would highly recommend this tour, this company and our guide "Gi Gi". He was extremely passionate about his work and helped us learn so much more with his knowledge of the Colosseum. Our pass got us to skip the line which was very helpful especially with the line standing in the hot August sun! Dont do it alone-go with the tour!!

Our guide was an archeologist, she was wonderful and so informative. My son was so thrilled that he could go to where the gladiators were at one point.

A great tour which packs a lot in over a 3.5 hour period, hosted by the wonderful Eliza whose passion and knowledge for her subject were immense. Highly, highly recommended!

This was by far the best tour I have ever been on. It was amazing and our tour guide Sev, was fantastic. You could see that he loved to teach and answered all our questions with patience and humour. He made the history of the Colloseum come alive for us, and we will always be grateful that we had him as our guide.

Perfect! Have been to the Colosseum several times on our own. Now having our own guide, our family of 8 learned so much more about religion, politics and history. Bravo!

Great tour- exactly as advertised. This is the kind of stuff we went to Rome to see.

This was our first tour of our holiday, and it really exceeded my expectations! The tour company did an excellent job organising us into groups, and our tour guide, Sofie, was really superb. We started off by visiting the ruins of the Roman Forum, followed by Palatine Hill, the ancient birthplace of the city. Sofie imparted so much information I wondered how she remembered it all! The sights we saw were simply amazing, and by having an expert with us, we could actually appreciate what we were looking at far better than if we had simply toured the site by ourselves.
Sofie had told us that, as the Colosseum was being renovated, we wouldn't be able to visit the underground chambers, which was a little bit disappointing. However, when we arrived at the Colosseum and were handed over to one of their guides, we were informed that all of the work on the underground section was now finished, and we would be the first tour group allowed in since it reopened! (I'm usually not that lucky!) While the sound system wasn't quite as good in the Colosseum as it had been in the Forum with the tour guide, it was still quite easy to hear, and the Colosseum guide was clearly passionate about her subject. Walking out onto the arena floor was simply breathtaking, and the underground chambers were fascinating. We were also led up onto the upper tier, where most tourists can't go, and this was equally as incredible - we got a fabulous view not only of the Colosseum, but also of Rome beyond, and as there weren't many tourists up there, it felt a lot less claustrophobic and crowded, and we weren't having to jostle for good photograph positions.
While this tour was quite expensive, it really was worth every penny. There was no waiting around in a never-ending line to get inside the Colosseum, and the access we got was just incredible!
Highly recommended.
