Our tour guide was excellent on this tour. The historical and archeological insights she provided were very helpful. In addition, we had access to places that you can't see otherwise. There is a lot of walking and climbing stairs, so be prepared. We did this in early April, so the mid-summer heat was not a factor. This was a great tour.
Loved this tour, did this tour more of the Colosseum. A must see in Rome!
Absolutely AMAZING! We were able to see portions of the Colosseum that are generally off limits to the general public. Our tour guide, (I believe his name was Maurizio) was WONDERFUL! He really made Ancient Rome come alive in the way he shared information. I would go back and do this tour again, especially with him.
This was really awesome, and the exclusivity was better than expected. Our group got to access private areas with limited access and were the only group allowed to enter at a given time. Would certainly recommend this tour.
Guides were very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. It was great to be able to go into the areas that were off-limits to the "regular" tourists. The view from the upper tier is awesome. Having a guide explain the details of the ruins on the Palatine is also very helpful, not to mention fascinating. And, of course, it is much better to spend your time in Rome actually seeing the sites and learning the history instead of standing in lines just to get in to the basic areas of the Colosseum. Once you see the length of just that one line you'll be thankful you took the tour!
This was far the best tour I have ever been on!! cannot recommend this enough. our tour guide was an architect so was very knowledgeable about the sites, materials and working practice. He also brought the fun back into history. Getting access into parts of the colosseum not usually open to normal ticket holders was a great touch. it was the first tour I have been on that uses mobile headphone sets which is much better than the usual tour guide shouting over 50 people. overall very happy and recommend to everyone wanting a good history lesson of rome in its entirety in a few hours.
My husband and I were both very impressed with the Dark Rome Tour that we booked while in Rome. It was absolutely the best tour ever. Our tour guide Sev was from New York and was one of the best tour guides ever. He made this tour so interesting that we learned a great deal about the Colleseuem, Forum and Rome in general. We both would highly recommend this tour as a must while in Rome.
Awesome guide who also answered all questions and made it very interesting.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and Sev certainly knew his history. We would recommend this tour
Our tour guide (a young woman I can't remember her name) spoke great English, was so knowledgeable and made these remarkable sites even more interesting than they already are. We particularly loved the tour of the upper tier and dungeons of the colosseum, there is no other way to see it!
