Serafina did a wonderful job on a hot day keeping a very diverse group on track....loved the Colosseum and being able to go down below and up,above!
It was a little confusing finding the Viator guides at the Metro station, and once we found our guide had to squeeze through congested Metro station again to cross street to Colosseum. The entrance into the Colosseum was much easier when you are with a group. Due to heavy rain we were not allowed to access the underground but our guide managed to describe the underground rooms in enough detail that we were not too disappointed. To make up for not seeing the underground, the tour was modified to include a tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. I was glad our guide gave so much information. Would recommend a smaller size group tour for this tour.
Brilliant tour. Our guide Mauritzio was really knowledgeable and brought the Roman Forum and the Colosseum to life. The underground chambers and the upper tier vists were well worth the extra cost.
Our guide was exceptional! So passionate about sharing his knowledge with us. Enjoyed so much!
It was worth every cent. Yes, I can buy my tickets early and skip part of the line yet this is still even quicker. Our guide was very knowledgeable and he specialize in studying Roman history. We love being able to go through both the upper and lower levels and learn the most important aspects the sites. My only criticism was that the time changed from 8:30 to 9:30am without an email. We were glad that a representative was there to let us know.
This tour was amazing. Our Guide, Sev, was informative, witty, and really made the entire experience something we will never forget.
I recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to get the "behind the scenes" feel of the Colosseum, you won't regret a minute of it! You will enjoy every minute.
While we were not able to go onto the colosseum floor, our guide took us to places others were not allowed and gave us a excellent education of the history and special insights. This is a tour well worth the price.
This was the best guided tour we have ever been on and definitely the highlight of our entire trip. We credit this to our amazing tour guide. I believe that his name was Sef or Sev. He was an American who is now working at the university of Rome so I know that will enable you to identify him if I don't have his name spelt correctly. He was so knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining that we did not want the tour to end. We would do this same tour on our next trip to Rome if we could be guaranteed of getting this guide. Please send us the correct spelling of his name because we will inquire if he is available on our next trip and we will also highly recommend Viator. The Underground Chambers were amazing and we are grateful that we had the opportunity to see it. - Shirley and Stan Smyth
Our directions as far as meeting up with the guides was perfect. The tour guides were very knowledgable. We found out all kinds of information we didn't know. Very interesting!
Our guide Sev was great, he knew everything about the forum and the collosseum. At times it was more than i wanted to know as i just wanted to see the colloseum but we made it there and he was just as informative about it.
excellent, nothing less guide was fantastic and spent alot of time with us. well done
I have been on this trip on two other occasions but learnt something different each time.Mauritz was an excellent guide and I thought that starting with the Forum was a great idea as we could stay on in the Colosseum after the tour ended.Super!
This tour was amazing! It was a small group, and we got in without waiting on huge lines, and it was fantastic. We had two tour guides: Kiera and Laura (Lara?). Kiera took us around the arena and the ruins, and Laura joined us amazing facts about how the Colosseum was constructed. Kiera gave us a tour of the remaining ruins - so knowledgeable and so full of energy. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
