We really enjoyed this tour. It was really cool to be able to go through all the levels of the Colosseum as well as hear about what is believed to have occurred during the time that it was active. Our guide was really informative.

Would highly recommend this tour, this company and our guide "Gi Gi". He was extremely passionate about his work and helped us learn so much more with his knowledge of the Colosseum. Our pass got us to skip the line which was very helpful especially with the line standing in the hot August sun! Dont do it alone-go with the tour!!

A lot of fun, seeing below the colosseum wasn't really worth it as it's basically demolished. However, getting to climb to the upper tier was spectacular

This tour was amazing. The Colosseum took my breath away. Our tour guide Sara was so informative and friendly. She really made such a difference to our tour. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about the history of the Colosseum.

This was the best way to see the colosseum. We found the tour to be very organised. Even with the crowds the tour went really smoothly. Our guide was great, she was very knowledgable. Had a great time.
Would definitely book with Viator again.

It pays to take the tour and get to see all the levels of the Colosseum! The new floor is open and worth going out onto. You can really feel the enormity of the stadium from the floor. The upper tier provides awesome views of the Colosseum ad well as ancient Rome. The forum was more of my husband's thing...he said he was really happy with the tour and the guide. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

We were in Rome August 2014. The line ups to almost all of the major sites were unfathomably long. As with all of the Viator tours, one of the benefits is you skip the huge line ups. Well worth the extra money if your time is limited. The tour started with a tour of the Forum and Palantine which are the ancient Roman ruins just on the other side of the Colosseum. Our guide was very informative and really gave us some great insight into the history. This tour however also gives you additional perspectives of the Flavian Amphitheater (aka Colosseum) as you are taken to the upper and lower levels which are not open to the rest of the public. It helped to make sense of the incredible work involved to put on "a show" during Roman times. Part of the lower chambers has been re - built so you can get a sense of how the various animals/gladiators etc were presented to the crowds. The tour was well organized, informative and well worth the money. I think we would have missed so much of the details and education had we just toured this on our own. As a note, our guide told us the movie Gladiator was as a story historically inaccurate however the set up of the underground Colosseum he felt was very accurate. Just keep that in mind if you want to watch the movie again to get a sense of the space. Highly recommend this tour.

This is a MUST DO tour for anyone visiting Rome...3 1/2 hours long and a lot of walking covering Palentine Hill, Roman Forum and of course the Colosseum. Our guide, Francesca was superb, she spoke excellent english and had great knowledge....she is a history teacher by profession! We were in a group of around 20 people, so not to large and everyone thoroughly enjoyed. The restricted access to areas of the Colosseum only open to guided tours is well worth the money in its self... especially up to the upper tier where the views are amazing. You must do this tour if you are planning to visit the Colosseum...just ask all the people who tried to follow us up to the upper tier and were denied access!

Very detailed tour and would recommend this to and anyone I knew that was heading to Rome. It does go for quite some time so be prepared to walk for a bit but if you really want to learn about Ancient Rome this tour is a must.

This was an outstanding tour taking you to places you would not ordinarily get the opportunity to see. Our guide was knowledgeable and humorous and had a real passion for Ancient Rome! It was also great value for money as the tour took 4.5hrs. We would highly recommend this tour!
