Very knowledgeable tour guide. The extra money for the exclusive tour is worth it in my opinion.
A wonderful experience. Guides were very knowledgeable. Special access to the underground chambers was a treat. Well worth it.
So glad we went ahead and added the underground and upper tier, amazing perspective, and amazing views from up top. Don't hesitate to book this tour.
Such a fantastic tour! We loved our guide and even saw a real fight while standing on the colosseum floor! Two resident cats had a little row on the floor and apparently it was the first time they interacted like that! Our guide was very informative and the stories of the people that lived, worked and frequented the Colosseum really brought that time to life for me. Well worth the money!
Fantastic experience, knowledgeable guides, highly recommended. Be prepared for lots of walking and steps as you climb to the top and bottom of the Colosseum and cover a lot of ground in Ancient Rome (do take water with you!) but well worth spending the 3/4 hours to do it. Amazing photos, no queuing and we all learnt so much thanks to our enthusiastic guides who really brought the past to life; my daughter even changed the topic of her dissertation as she was so inspired by this tour.
Amazing!!! We had a little trouble with the headset but t was quickly fixed and our guide was wonderful. She was so knowledgeable beyond anything I could have hoped for and I could not have had a better tour. Thank you so much. I am someone that travels alone and I booked 2 tours with your company and one transfer...your guides made my time in Rome so enjoyable. I have already suggested your company to several others.
Tour guide was great and passionate. Unfortunately the underground was closed due to the rain.
We had a small group 12 of us and had a FANTASTIC TOUR. One from Viator and the other from the Colosseum. I would review as one of the best ones to take so much information. Thank you Viator.
This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, the Colosseum, and the surrounding areas. She not only told us about the history of those areas but whats happened to them since, how they've come to such ruins, and what the city is now trying to do to restore them. When you get to the Colosseum your tour guide stays with you but another tour guide (with the keys to the underground chambers and upper tier) takes over the tour. He was fantastic as well. He was able to give you so much detail that you could envision how the Colosseum would have looked back when the gladiators were fighting main stage. Overall we couldn't have been luckier with our tour guides. You could tell they really loved what they did and enjoyed sharing it with other people.
Our guide (for the 0830 tour ... we regret greatly that we can't now recall her name) was personable, engaging and so very knowledgeable. We both enjoyed ourselves and absorbed so much about the Coliseum, Forum ... So much so that we were inspired to purchase and are now readng a number of books on Rome's history, architecture .... Without question, we recommend the tour (and please identify the guide so that she could receive the credit for making possible for us so wonderful an experience. Again, this was the c. 0830 tour on October 29th, 2014).
The tour offered sights not available in most tours. It was wonderful to be able to see the underground chambers, stand in the arena and view the upper tier.
