Tiberio was AMAZING. I learned so much and got to go to places most people don't get to see. This trip is worth it.
Did this tour 28.10.2014....we were very fortunate to have an Italian guide that was also an archaeologist, her name was Barbara from City Wonder Tours and she was great. The tour is very comprehensive of the Colosseum but can be a bit tiring with the roman forum ruins included. We started at 8:30am and finished at about 12:30pm. I would have preferred to do the in depth Colosseum tour on its own....it just depends what your schedule is like, how much time you have etc.
The tour guide, Mikayla, was very knowledgeable and passionate about "her" city and the history. Walking into the main floor Colosseum, after touring the underground and hearing the stories of what went on long long ago, was a awesome experience. We should all be grateful they are patiently and accurately restoring more of this wonderful piece of history.
really good definitely worth it guided tour gives you so much information about the places you visit
Tour guide really good, very informative. We enjoyed the access to the underground chambers and upper tier, the experience was enhanced by the number of people being restricted! Although did feel a bit rushed when in main arena. The tour of the roman forum and palatine hill was again enjoyable and informative. Would recommend the tour especially if in Rome for a short trip.
We absolutely loved this tour. Our guide Francesca was amazing, really knowledgeable and made the whole experience interesting. We got so much out of going to the see these sights with a guide, so much information was parted with. I have previously seen the sights on an earlier trip to Italy where I didn't do a tour and I got so much more out of it this time around. Well worth the money and time!
If you are going to the Colosseum then this is the tour to do. To go to the underground chambers and see where the lions and gladiators were kept was amazing and then to go way up top and look down on it all was great.
Awesome....wow colosseum is amazing. Be prepared if you do this tour as it is alot of walking but really worth it. We walked right to the top tier and also underground into the bowels. Tour guide was great and went through the history. This tour also included more walking to the capitoline and palatine hills. So much history and a must do when in rome.
This was a fantastic tour and our guide was absolutely fantastic.
Our guide, Francesca, was terrific! She took her time and explained the sites in perfect English. I would recommend this tour to ours especially if you have limited time in Rome.
Irene brought everything to life for us! We didn't expect to see so much of the Forum, but we saw nearly everything, and both agreed that the Imperial Palace on Palatine Hill was one of our Top 3 sights of a week long trip in Europe - all thanks to Irene's clear and evocative descriptions of what once had been. Absolutely worth it to go underground in the Colosseum. Very steep steps to go up to the upper levels. But excellent quality all around.
We had looked forward to this tour and were not disappointed. Our guide was outstanding. She was always smiling and positive and made every effort to inform us of all that there was to see and understand during our tour. The tour included the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum which was truly the highlight. By the end of the tour, although we were physically tired we felt we definitely had the best tour possible.
