Another great tour! The tour of the Forum was excellent and having access to the upper tier and underground chambers of the Colosseum made this tour an experience to remember.

This was definitely the best way to see the Colosseum. This tour included passes to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill which was a surprise for us as we just expected the Colosseum. But what an amazing bonus! The history and mix of ancient architecture and ruins in the Forum is mind-blowing and rather surreal. We skipped all the queues and on this tour we passed through locked gates into the bowels of the amphitheatre to tread where the gladiators did. We learned how the Romans thought the spectacular events put on in the arena were like magic, with animals appearing from apparently nowhere. To see 'backstage' was an experience not to be missed. With this special pass we also were taken to the top level where there were spectacular views of the Forum below. It wasn't overcrowded as the access was for just one tour at a time. Both tour guides were interesting, friendly and highly knowledgeable. Our guide even remembered every single one of our names, and there were quite a few of us! This was the best tour we did in Rome. What an amazing, barbaric but beautiful place!

Wow! Do you enjoy skipping long lines and getting right to sight seeing? What about going places when others can't and passing the crowds as you go behind locked gates? If so than this is the trip for you. I can't imagine having gone the the Colosseum without going to see the underground chambers or floor that's where all the magic happened. Worth the price and the guide was very kind.

Francesca, our tour guide for the afternoon, and another Francesca, who was our tour guide inside the Colosseum, were both excellent. The tour took us to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with the first Francesca, and then to all levels of the Colosseum with our second tour guide. Seeing the underground section of the Colosseum was AMAZING! Despite all the unexpected questions from tour guests, we started and finished right on time. I highly recommend this tour.

Very enjoyable as well as educational. We were able to see areas that would normally be off limits to the average tourist. The views of the Colosseum and later the Forum and Rome from the Palatine Hills was absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend this tour to people who want to get a real understanding of Ancient Rome.

This was absolutely great. Try to get Gigi, he is great and really makes it all worth it. Don't even think about the little bit extra money, go see the dungeons and the few from top rocks.

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.
