No better way to see and understand the Colosseum than this tour which takes you from the floor of the Colosseum to the top tier. Loved the history and insight provided by the outstanding tour guides. Loved seeing the pulleys and ramps used to bring animals and combatants to the stage or ground floor of the Colosseum.

Well worth the money, guide was very good and clear. Amazing views and access to the Colosseum that not everyone gets to see.

Where to start? Meeting point was easy to locate and the team there looked after us from the word go. Both guides were most knowledgable and gave the information in an interesting manor. The tour over ran but this did not deter our guide from making sure we got and saw everything we had paid for. If you are going to the Colosseum this is the ONLY way to see it all and the the Forums afterwards. Great value for money.

Caution any other travelers that the steps are seep and slippery when wet. But, we saw all we wanted and more. A very well informed guide. Very memorable trip.

Excellent tour lead by a funny, knowledge-filled Mamma G that treated our group like her family.

It's a fantastic way to get the most out of the Colosseum, from the ground floor up. We skipped the lines which made it all the more enjoyable. Mamma G then lead us through the Forum and Palatine Hill, each step of the way, she provided interesting facts and information about the history including pictures of what it would have looked like in ancient times.

Absolutely loved this tour, very few people are allowed access to the Underground Chambers and Upper Tier at any given time. Our Colosseum guide literally had to unlock gates to grant us access to these special areas and it was an amazing experience. Not only are you allowed onto the arena floor but get to go below it to see where the animals were kept, how the gladiators entered and how the elevators that raised competitors to the area floor were operated. Then you get to head up to the third ring which grants amazing views over the entire Colosseum and they vistas beyond. This tour also takes you through the Roman Forum which was a fantastic experience as well. Both guides, the main tour guide and the Colosseum guide, were very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions. I was also impressed at how intimate the tour felt, even though it was a group of 22 people. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Awesome. Angela was our guide and this three hour tour went by quickly. We started with a tour of the vast Roman Forum. So rich with history including Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony and the six vestigial virgins. The views from the Palentine Hill are amazing.

The Colosseum tour was definitely a high point of our 10 days in Italy. Skipping the line is a must as the crowds are very large. I also recommend seeing the underground chambers as it really adds to the experience and the understanding of how the events were orchestrated back in the day.

Loved our tour. Our guide was great and really knew his history. I loved the Colosseum and the chance to see the underground section was well worth it. This is a must take tour

Skip the line is so worth it, the queues are huge even early on. This tour was 3.5 hours and also included Palatine Hill and the Forum. The guide was very good and once we entered the colosseum we then picked up their official guide and the general guide stayed with us which was good. Seeing the underground chambers and being able to go to the upper tier is so worth it. Do not underestimate though the other part of the tour the Forum is incredibly impressive as is Palantine Hill especially with an informative guide to explain what happened here.

It was just fantastic to be walking through such ancient ruins with such a knowledgeable tour guide. Marianella ? was wonderful. To walk through the Colosseum alone would be a waste of time, as there is so much to be gained from the experience of a tour guide. Marianella was an archaeologist! Perfect!

Jaw dropping tour.Definitely unsuitable for someone bad on their feet though, as it involves a long walk and climbing steps.
I pre-booked this tour on line for me and my 15 year old son. The instructions for meeting were spot on and only a 10 minute walk from our hotel .We walked to The Forum first with our guide Irena . You are provided with headsets and the commentary was in English. We were taken around the best sights in The Forum and Irena was very friendly and informative.The Colosseum was very crowded, but we got in a lot quicker by being part of this guided tour. Another guide Danuti took over and we were treated to going on the arena floor and part of the under floor area. This was totally stunning and I was extremely glad that we did this as it makes the experience even better.We were also taken exclusively to the third level.You could then stay onside as long as you wanted.
This was the highlight of our holiday and I would strongly recommend this very well run tour.

Our guide was terrific. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name. The entire tour was so interesting and enabled us to see areas that ordinary tourists aren't allowed to go. Seeing the underground areas especially the elevators the Romans constructed was amazing. This tour is definitely worth buying!

This tour was amazing, the guide was very knowledgeable. Being able to see the lower portion of the Colosseum and the upper tier were great. Pictures don't do this tour justice, it is something you should see in person.
