EXCELLENT tour! There were 24 people in our group and the guide (Dario?) was witty and knowledgeable. He piqued our interest, asked US questions, and helped us understand the sites in the Forum area and their historical significance. Being able to go "underground" in the Colosseum was enlightening and our guide dispelled some myths that all of us in the group had held based on movies and legend. When we emerged after climbing the steps to the upper tiers, the sky was bright blue and the view of the whole Colosseum was magnificent. I cannot imagine touring these sites without a knowledgeable guide.
Everything about this experience was positive - from buying the tour online, printing the voucher, arriving at the meeting point using the clear directions, and visiting the sites. The headsets and microphone system made sure that we didn't miss anything the guide said. My only advice to future tour goers would be to bring your own comfortable earbuds and use them instead of the disposable ones provided.
I loved going into the underground and the view from the top level is worth the extra cost. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgable! Recommend doing!!!
Great tour overall. Upper tier access is great and away from all the crowds. Tour guide Francesa was the best we had in Italy and very informative.
Francesa the tour guide amazingly knowledgeable. View from top of colosseum amazing. Under the colosseum worth the extra. Forum very impressive. Long trip but worth it. Better in mild weather
This tour was great - our guide Giada was very good, she spoke very well and knew so much about what were visiting! We had a great time on this tour and would request her again!
This fabulous tour takes you to both the high an low areas of the Colosseum that are not open to everyone. The guide was excellent.
Outstanding tour. Emanuela was our tour guide. She made everything so interesting and exciting. It was so much better being in a small group and being able to go where other groups couldn't go. The underground chambers were amazing.
We had already been to the colosseum on a previous visit to Rome, so chose this tour as it offered something different. It was fantastic to see the underground chambers and the upper tier as the number of visitors is restricted,so you get to see a piece of history not a lot of others have seen. The tour through the Forum and palatine hill also went to places we hadn't seen before. Our guide Sara was very good with lots of information and she did her best to keep us out of the sun on a very hot day. We would highly recommend this tour,it lasted about 3 1/2 hours and was good value and no waiting in queues.
This tour was amazing by far my favorite of thee entire Europe trip. Guide was very knowledgeable and the access to private areas in the Colosseum was great!
Sev was very knowledgable and kept me intrigued. Learned so much thank you
Highlight of the trip. Claudia, our guide, was fantastic. Interesting for adults and children. Fabulous tour. Highly recommend.
Francesca, was our tour guide an she was awesome, totally made the tour worthwhile. Being able to go to the underground chambers an upper tier was a great hands on experience. Highly recommend this tour you won't be disappointed.
Ancient Rome part of the tour was good. Would recommend to go early morning as the sun was very harsh. Tour guide had a few English translation difficulties so at times a little hard to understand her. Overall informative and we'll worth while as the tour guide could show us pictures of what used to be there which I don't think we would have fully understood without her.
Colosseum, underground and upper, fabulous. A different guide to the Roman ruins. Tried her best with English. Really informative and task orientated. Seeing the Colosseum from way up high and below ground a must.
