Definitely worth it. You were granted access into areas that no one else was. The guide was excellent. She even showed us pictures that she brought with her of the colosseum as it would have looked when it was first built.
Great tour guide and memorable tour. SKIP HOP ON HOP OFF TOUR...it is overbooked and nothing works well. Save your money and take the metro and/or a cab.
Fabrizio is a great guide, he shared his knowledge very well. Standing in the arena, visiting the underground chambers and walking to the top tier was a fantastic experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us what things were like when the Colosseum and Palatine Hill were bustling. The guide was very concerned when someone left the group without telling him and he did all he could to try to find the person. It slowed us down a bit, but we still saw everything on the tour and had a wonderful experience.
Our guide's name was Serafina, and she was wonderful. We really enjoyed her explanations of the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. She also explained that the Roman water fountains around the city contain drinkable water and are free to anyone. This was very helpful on the hot, sunny days!! The Underground Tour of the Colosseum was amazing and very interesting to learn more about that section of the history.
Omg, what a tour. Our guide was arheologyst Alexandro and we could not imagine a better guide. So much history and detailed explanations. Organization of tour was superb also. Our tour was even longer due to bathroom break delay and Alexandro did not rush us at all. This tour was just spectacular.
Up, down and all around!!
This is the only way to see the coliseum !!
Our tour guides were great -so much information. I was only half listening because I was in such awe of what I was seeing.
An excellent tour with a very good guide. Very hot in the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill but water bottles can be filled from a fountain in the Hill. This was an early afternoon tour on a hot May Day 30 degrees C that would have benefitted from the cooler visit to the Colosseum being programmed before that to the outdoor Forum. Thoroughly recommend this small party tour to include the underground chambers and floor of the arena.
Both tour guides were excellent. This tour lived up to our expectations and more. Would certainly recommend it to beat the crowds, but also to gain an amazing insight into history during this time and see places not normally open to the public.
This tour was amazing!! Unfortunately the day I did the tour on poured rained but our guide GiGi did not lose any of his enthusiasm so it was still a great day. He was a wealth of knowledge and his excitement for the material made the it very interesting!
Great Tour! totally worth doing... you get to skip the lines and see parts of the Colosseum that no one else get to see. Our guild was great, she gave a very informative and knowledgeable tour.
the tour was excellent . it was excellent / well planed and the guide was very professional. she really know her history and was versed in all aspects of the tour. would recommend this tour.
this was awesome! the underground was amazing how it was constructed, and the history behind it, the upper level view should not be missed. the colosseum guide spoke softly and without the headset/microphone he was hard to hear. the forum and palantine hill was so historic-the current day photos and overlays provided a wonderful comparison, the guide was great and provided wonderful insight all the way, answered questions beautifully and we loved it all. thank him please-with 2 guides I unfortunately forgot his name.
Great tour. Very Informative. Could probably do it in 2.5 hrs not 3.5. Was a bit too long for the 3 kids 8,13, 13 yrs. Guides were great.
This tour is well worth the money, it's 3.5 hours long the guides are amazing and they take you palatine hill and Roman forum first, we had Emma as a guide and she was lovely and funny and knew her stuff.... One word of advice if it's hot take a bottle of water with you, you can refill on the way.
Would give this 6 stars. Fantastic tour, our guide Nick was so informative and personable. We had such a good time and learned so much about the Colosseum, The Forum and Palatine Hill. It is a wonderful tour and worth every cent to skip the line and be there before the crowds, I have been recommending it to all tourists i speak with. Thank you for such a great experience. Still in awe of the tour and the Colosseum. Grazie Nick.
The best tour!!! The guide was very knowledgeable!!!!! Have been to Colosseum few times but this was the best! Highly recommend it. Ask for Serafina , she made all he difference!
This was also a wonderful tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and made the presentations very informative and entertaining. We had time for looking around on our own and never felt rushed.
Great tour of practically everything. Only issue is that guide needs to plan a bathroom break between colosseum and Palantine Hill because most people have difficulty waiting three hours after just having lunch. She seemed a little annoyed when several insisted using bathroomeventhoughitwaspromised
Tour guide was amazing with his knowledge of Roman architecture, history, and stories about the Roman Fora and Colosseum. We had been to the Colosseum before but never on the floor of the Colosseum. Tour made the Fora, Palatine Hill, and especially the Colosseum come to life.
very knowledgeable and great paced tour! Got everything and more from this tour! Guide was corteous and went above and beyond!
Let's get the bad parts over with, some rain, safety wouldn't allow us to go to the underground and upper level. But that is fine, it limits the erosion and keeps us safe. Now the best part, our guide was fully informed and could convey all information to us in a manner that was informative without being a lecture. We were guided to the best spots to get photos and not rushed. Excellent tour, nobody should miss it
