Loved loved loved this tour!!! So well worth not having to wait in the excruciatingly long line to get into the Colosseum, and on top of that, we gained access to areas not covered in the other tours and general admission tix. Loved our tour guide, who was so full of information, and easy to understand...even my kids enjoyed listening to him!!!
We loved every minute of it! Very detailed explanation of the Colosseum with access to all levels - the view from the top level is breath taking. Our tour guide Francesca was wonderful, explaining the past, connecting with the present. It's an eye opening tour. The tour of the Roman Forum was great too. We didn't expect to walk so much - make sure you wear sneakers or walking shoes. We didn't go into the museums in the Forum, but after the tour is over you can go back and spend the whole day there.
Absolutely AMAZING! We were able to see portions of the Colosseum that are generally off limits to the general public. Our tour guide, (I believe his name was Maurizio) was WONDERFUL! He really made Ancient Rome come alive in the way he shared information. I would go back and do this tour again, especially with him.
Loved this tour, did this tour more of the Colosseum. A must see in Rome!
Our tour guide was excellent on this tour. The historical and archeological insights she provided were very helpful. In addition, we had access to places that you can't see otherwise. There is a lot of walking and climbing stairs, so be prepared. We did this in early April, so the mid-summer heat was not a factor. This was a great tour.
Both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour.
The organisation was very good, even though the tour went over the alloted time.
Our guide was excellent,his knowledge was extensive and he conveyed his enthusiasm for the subject..His delivery was excellent and he used humour to bring his subject alive.
It was worth the extra money to tour the underground chambers ,the the arena and the upper tier. having these areas to ourselves made it so enjoyable and we were given time to take photographs which was appreciated.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to make the most of their visit to the Colosseum.
Guides were very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. It was great to be able to go into the areas that were off-limits to the "regular" tourists. The view from the upper tier is awesome. Having a guide explain the details of the ruins on the Palatine is also very helpful, not to mention fascinating. And, of course, it is much better to spend your time in Rome actually seeing the sites and learning the history instead of standing in lines just to get in to the basic areas of the Colosseum. Once you see the length of just that one line you'll be thankful you took the tour!
This was really awesome, and the exclusivity was better than expected. Our group got to access private areas with limited access and were the only group allowed to enter at a given time. Would certainly recommend this tour.
This was far the best tour I have ever been on!! cannot recommend this enough. our tour guide was an architect so was very knowledgeable about the sites, materials and working practice. He also brought the fun back into history. Getting access into parts of the colosseum not usually open to normal ticket holders was a great touch. it was the first tour I have been on that uses mobile headphone sets which is much better than the usual tour guide shouting over 50 people. overall very happy and recommend to everyone wanting a good history lesson of rome in its entirety in a few hours.
Awesome guide who also answered all questions and made it very interesting.
My husband and I were both very impressed with the Dark Rome Tour that we booked while in Rome. It was absolutely the best tour ever. Our tour guide Sev was from New York and was one of the best tour guides ever. He made this tour so interesting that we learned a great deal about the Colleseuem, Forum and Rome in general. We both would highly recommend this tour as a must while in Rome.
