EXCELLENT tour! There were 24 people in our group and the guide (Dario?) was witty and knowledgeable. He piqued our interest, asked US questions, and helped us understand the sites in the Forum area and their historical significance. Being able to go "underground" in the Colosseum was enlightening and our guide dispelled some myths that all of us in the group had held based on movies and legend. When we emerged after climbing the steps to the upper tiers, the sky was bright blue and the view of the whole Colosseum was magnificent. I cannot imagine touring these sites without a knowledgeable guide.
Everything about this experience was positive - from buying the tour online, printing the voucher, arriving at the meeting point using the clear directions, and visiting the sites. The headsets and microphone system made sure that we didn't miss anything the guide said. My only advice to future tour goers would be to bring your own comfortable earbuds and use them instead of the disposable ones provided.
No other way to see the colosseum! Skipped the line, saw the underground chambers and the top most floor which normally you wouldn't see. Learnt a lot about the history behind it including the areas around the colosseum. The end of the tour did stretch on a little but all in all was worth doing.
I loved going into the underground and the view from the top level is worth the extra cost. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgable! Recommend doing!!!
Very enjoyable, I loved the historical part of the tour. Only comment would be it was a bit long with a lot of walking and climbing stairs in the heat.
This tour was amazing by far my favorite of thee entire Europe trip. Guide was very knowledgeable and the access to private areas in the Colosseum was great!
Interesting, but I ended up learning more about the Colosseum at my Pompeii tour than this one. I would not take this tour again.
Highlight of the trip. Claudia, our guide, was fantastic. Interesting for adults and children. Fabulous tour. Highly recommend.
Great tour overall. Upper tier access is great and away from all the crowds. Tour guide Francesa was the best we had in Italy and very informative.
Francesa the tour guide amazingly knowledgeable. View from top of colosseum amazing. Under the colosseum worth the extra. Forum very impressive. Long trip but worth it. Better in mild weather
This tour was great - our guide Giada was very good, she spoke very well and knew so much about what were visiting! We had a great time on this tour and would request her again!
