OMG!!! OMG!!! Ancient Rome is absolutely amazing!! I was overwhelmed with emotions the entire time, I felt like I had gone back in time. The best tour I've ever experienced. The Colosseum is a great tour, the structure and engineering are very impressive. The history of events that took place here were very brutal, I felt no emotional attachment to the Colosseum like I did in Ancient Rome. Rosanna is a terrific tour guide, born and raised Rome!
I and #39;ve done this tour before with the same guide, Valentina. She is so good. Knows her stuff. First time tour for my husband and he loved it. You see so much of the colosseum on this tour and also the Forum. It was great!
What an incredible tour! I am not one for bus tours but my experience to Italy would not have been the same without it. Elisa was our tour guide on the Tuscany tour which was excellent. On our tour we saw Sienna, a working farm, San Gimignamo and Pisa. I highly recommend it!

So glad we took this tour, the restricted area access was incredible, so much information that help with getting the big picture of the way the colosseum was in its prime.
Do yourself a favor and take the tour
The Collesseum and Forum tour was amazing. So many interesting facts to learn. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone. Our guide was awesome and very passionate about the history relating to the venues she took us to.

If you really want to see ancient Rome, this is the ticket! We loved hearing the sorties and its a solid walk but the guide was great and really had the pace right.
A M A Z I N G! AMAZING TOUR, AMAZING TOUR GUIDE! Went everywhere and saw everything! Highly recommend. Only issue is that I wish it went longer as it was slightly hurried :(
Unbelievable Tour Guide and Tour. Completely exceeded our expectations! Archeologists leading the tour so insightful, probably our best tour of the trip.
The tour was amazing and our tour guide was OUTSTANDING! She was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that she made the tour so much more fun! I highly recommend your tour company and THIS tour. It is unfortunate that the tour inside the Colosseum needs to be conducted by their tour guides as it interrupted the flow a little. Their guide was very nice and informative, but her English was not as good and I think it made her nervous.
This tour was a great decision, simply amazing! You will go to several areas that general admission won and #39;t get you to. The underground area is small but very intriguing. You also go on the main platform, and to look up at the colosseum as a gladiator might have is a tremendous feeling.
Saw many tours online prior to going and so glad we got this one. Skipping all lines was great and worth it on its own. The underground and third tier were gates opened by key for relatively private access to areas of the Colosseum you just dont want to miss. Underground had views of there the gladiators and animals were staged, moved and removed. The third tier is the highest access point and had vistas of the Colosseum and Forum and Rome that you just cant get anywhere else.
Throughly enjoyed the tour. Tour guides were there well before tour started. The tour was wonderful to see the coliseum from floor level and under was great. Ancient Rome was so fascinating. The tours were made more interesting by the knowledge of all guides concerned.
The access to restricted areas in the Colosseum was the best! It was amazing to be able to step on the Colosseum floor and visit the underground, areas not accessible on all tours. Highly recommend.
What a wonderful tour, not just the Colosseum, but the surrounding grounds which was so unexpected, with so much information on the history. So glad we did this tour, highly recommended.
We took this tour on 6/18/16 with Patricia as our guide. It actually had a tour within a tour as we met up with another guide who took us into the underground chambers and upper tier of the colosseum which I highly recommend. There was a lift for those unable to climb up and down the stairs to the underground portion, but I'm not sure if there was one for the upper tier. The steps for the upper tier were very steep and may not be suitable for all travelers. The tour was very informative and gave you a great glimpse into Imperial Rome. The second half of the tour included the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill which made for some incredible views! Overall, the tour was amazing. A little time would have been nice to stop and grab some souvenirs from the gift shop inside, but there's plenty of other shops nearby.
We really enjoyed our tour of the Colosseum and The Roman Forum. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and we felt like we learned so much about that period that we never knew before. We had access to areas in this tour that people who purchased the standard tour did not, the price was worth it!
Our tour was cancelled because of a National Strike which closed down the Colosseum from mid day, this could not have been planned for but the company contacted men and offered me a full refund or an alternative time or tour - we agreed on the best alternative that was available in the morning and everything ran smoothly. It says a lot about a company on how they handle a crisis and this was done well and we received a partial refund. We completed the Colosseum, Forum and Pallentine Hill Tour which was quite energetic but we had a very experienced and well informed guide who showed us just about everything and we really enjoyed the tour. All's well that ends well as we took ourselves off to the Parthenon for lunch and had a fantastic afternoon - which we would have missed out on had we completed our original tour!
If you are a historian of any sort then you will love this tour. It exceeded my wildest expectations and the tour guide was indeed the best in all of Rome!
Fantastic, the only way to see the Colosseum, and skip the terrible lines
