Incredible tour that included so much in depth information. Tour guide Susanna and our assigned colosseum archaeologist were fantastic with their engaging facts and approach perfectly putting across their love for their city. Great value for money and would recommend this tour to any history lover.

This was a fantastic tour. Seraphina was an incredible guide. She was very knowledgeable and a very nice individual. She was able to answer all of our questions and interacted with the whole group. The best part about this tour is its exclusivity. We were able to be on the stage, in the underground chambers and the upper tier with only our group. No crowds. On a hot day, that is well worth the price of admission. I would highly recommend.

This guided tour is amazing. Our tour guide Gigi was very informative, and quite funny. Exploring areas of the colosseum you don't normally see was great, you get a real sense of how it was. The Forum was incredible and once the tour was over we could stay in The Forum for as long as we wanted.

Our tour guide was Gigi. He was extremely interesting and knew what he was talking about. This was a wonderful tour and we enjoyed it so much. I like the size of our group and the sights we were taken to. I believe this was one of the best tours we took. Gigi was excellent!!!

This tour is a must! Seth was outstanding and knowledgable. All our guides were very knowledgeable with even advanced degrees! I would highly recommend seeing this one in a life time experience and see what most wont get to encounter. Worth the extra expense.

We did six tours while in Italy, and this was the coolest though the others were exceptional as well. You are awed by the sights, and facts the tour guide shares with you. Lots of walking, so wear comfortable shoes. We just went June 2015, and the temp was toasty. Will be hotter later in the year. Fantastic tour, with a fantastic tour guide she is an archeologist, and knows her stuff.

WOW.... This was a fantastic way of seeing the colosseum, our guide was a lady called Manuela who was very knowledgeable and passionate about ancient Rome. We entered the colosseum through a large gate which took you out on to a platform which was the colosseum floor and what an entrance it made me say WOW, we then went in to the underground chambers which is off limits to the hundreds of people in the colosseum unless you do this tour. The view from the third level was breathtaking and again is off limits unless you do this tour. I can highly recommend this tour it's worth every penny.

My only complaint is that this tour went so fast. . . .I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to spend any more time on the Palatine Hill, but was grateful that our entry ticket allowed us to go there after seeing the Forum. But there's no way to see the Colloseum, the Forum and the Palatine in a 1/2 day tour. I can't imagine doing the Colloseum and the Forum without a guide. . .skipping the long lines, and being able to go 'underground' and onto the upper levels at the Colloseum is a must! Our guide, David, was friendly, fun and informative. I would highly recommend this tour!

This tour made you feel special, the level of access you are granted to within the coliseum. It's a long walk and a few of our group struggled by the end but it's so worth completing. The guides on this tour really brought the ruins to life.

Excellent tour, our tour guide, Francesca, was great, she gave us so much information and answered all questions in detail. It's great to get into the underground part of the Colosseum.
Beware though, the tour is 3 hours of walking, you climb steep steps which are deep. It's tiring but worth it!

Fantastic tour with Francesca, who also happened to be an archaeologist! She was incredibly knowledgeable and we had an excellent time. Would highly recommend this tour. Underground chambers and upper tier also provided for a different experience and excellent views.

This was wonderful tour! We had access to the third tier and lower levels. The small group made for a less crowded experience if that's possible on tours in Rome. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informational. He made the tour quite interesting! Well worth the money!

Unbelievable tour, and unbelievable tour guide. Sad our original tour guide Fabrizio was unable to give the whole tour of the Colloseum, he was the better guide!

So pleased we booked this tour - a really unique opportunity to visit the parts of the colosseum that others don't see. Mariella, our fully qualified archeologist guide, was superb. Lots of interesting facts and a good level of detail - not too much or little. Very knowledgable and willing to help.

Our tour was well-organized, and our guide was interesting and knowledgeable. We covered so much, skipped all lines, and had access to normally out of bounds areas. Worth the investment; you will get far more out of the ruins than you would otherwise.
