This was an excellent tour of the Colosseum and underground. The guide was fantastic. This was the best ever tour of the Colosseum I had. Unfortunately the workers for the Forum and Palatine Hill were on strike so we could not visit there. However, Viator provided a refund and the tour guide indicated that we would get a refund. I like the quality of service when things don't go as planned. I would definitely recommend and use Viator in the future.
Great tour was so good to visit parts of colosseum which are not open for unescorted tours. Our guide was excellent and she was a wealth of information
It was raining hard, but it was amazing! And we were also brought to Palatine Hill, which I didn't expect at all.
Tour guide Suzanna was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about her city. You learnt and saw things you'd miss visiting on your own. Fantastic experience.
It was wonderful! The tour guide was so knowledgeable he made the tour so interesting. I highly recommend this tour.
The weather was difficult but our guide Susanna was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and pleasant.
This tour was absolutly the highlight of our trip to Rome. It was amazing to see the Colosseum and hear all of the interesting facts about this amazing building. This tour is alittle more expensive then others but it is definetly worth it to see the areas that are off limits to the public. Our tour guide Susana was very nice, informative and easy to understand. I would recommend this tour to anyone going to Rome. The meeting place was quite difficult to find it would be nice if the directions were clearer of if the tour met in a more open area. You should go at least a half hour ahead of time to make sure you dont miss your tour.
We really enjoyed the tour and the guide was very knowledgeable.
Excellent tour. Great way to learn about Ancient Rome alongside Modern Rome. Our Tour Guide was excellent and an historian too, currently writing a book about the many mistakes of the film Gladiators. Sadly it was raining pretty much all day, so the weather did wreck the experience a little and most of it wasn't spent undercover, so come prepared.
This tour has two groups. One group has more people and the other smaller and more intimate (higher price for the exclusivitity), both groups DO merge in the Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier portion of the tour only, this can make the experience a little less exclusive.
It was pouring rain, so most visitors were uncomfortable in weather but guide kept us out in the rain instead of looking for a place, even a small space, where we could be sheltered. Once i requested that we get in out of the rain, space was quickly found. I think this was something she should have taken the iniitiative to find. Group was small and guide was fluent in English. She was knowledgeable about her subject and passionate about antiquities. The Colosseum part of the tour was great. Sun came out by the time we crossed the busy street to the Forum. Disappointing part of the tour, just stood in one spot and were told "that used to be here, this is where x was," etc. The Colosseum is a centerpiece of a trip to Rome. Perhaps another tour would be more satisfying.
This is a must see experience for anyone new to Rome. This was our first time, and it was surreal standing in the same spot under the Colosseum where the gladiators and wild animals had walked. Bring a good camera!
Great tour, Great tour guide. First time in Rome and we didnt want to miss anything so we booked this tour. It may have cost a little more than some others(probably didnt want to hear that), but well worth it. Things were explain to us, we got to go everywhere and the bonus part was we got to go to the Forum and the Paletine and all over the place. It was recommended to us and I will recommend to others, thank you.
This was the finest tour I have ever taken. The guide was an archeology professor from Rome and he wove a historical story that was interesting and had great depth. I so badly wanted to take notes! If you have an interest in ancient Rome and want some depth of information, do not hesitate to take this tour.
