our guide was francesca she was extremely knowledgeable and spoke really good english -- tour round colosseum was amazing spectacular.
Our tour guide was fantastic! She was knowledgeable and this tour was our favorite of our trip to Italy. You’re treated to stunning views, interesting history, and an almost-private tour of the Colosseum, which is gorgeous at night, and not nearly as hot and crowded as the day version. This was an excellent tour!
Very interesting to see at night, and it was great to see the bottom of the forum, which you usually can't get to. It was also nice to have no crowds around you.
Dark Rome Tours does a great job, and Viator is wonderful to work with.
The best tour we have taken in Rome. Ancient Rome looks beautiful in the night. Especially we are grateful to our guide Lucia - very professional, with good knowledge of history. I would recommend this tour to everyone who visits Rome.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide's knowledge was limitless and she was just brilliant. So sorry can not remember her name. Thank you.
We never made it to the night tour. -- We were at the Colosseum an hour early but could not find the place were the tour began. Roads were blocked and there was a Gay Pride parade and demonstration that night. We finally found the meeting spot 45 minutes late, right at the site of the speeches and demonstration. But this was a Dark Rome tour and we had booked 4 tours with them - through Viator. The next morning we had a different tour with Dark Rome... at one point we explained to our guide what happened. As soon as the tour was complete he called the office and got us rebooked for a day tour. I heard the call on his end.. he really worked for us. Everything we did with Dark Rome was first rate. Their tours and tour personnel were all fantastic. Their customer service was excellent. All of us were glad we toured with Dark Rome. The one tour we did with Green Line did not leave a good impression. The colloseum of course was incredible...
Great guide. Very exciting tour. I've been to the colosseum many times, but this was an exceptional way to see it. One comment - very few members of the tour gave gratuities to the guide. I know Viatour can't encourage it, but if you read this review and go on a tour, remember how hard these folks work and give them a few bucks - you'd blow it on trinkets without thinking twice about it - just sayin'.
Totally different to the day time trip. To enter the Colosseum in small groups of about 20 people, with the sun going down and then in the dark, was extremely atmospheric. Highly recommended.
If you want to see the Colosseum illuminated and under the light of the moon, this is the perfect tour. I did this tour few years ago during the day and the experience was so different. This time I had the opportunity to see everything into more details and get an almost real life experience of what the Colosseum and games must have been like back in the day. You will be able to visit the underground part of the Colosseum where the gladiators and animals were kept right before entering the main stage. Overall the experience was 9/10. Learned a lot with tour guide as well. Antonio
The visit to the Colosseum is Fantastic! You normally expect it to be super busy because the Colosseum is very popular but with this tour, it is not like that at all. Our group was the only one in the Colosseum when we got it. We got the chance to see it in the daylight and night. Our guide knew a lot about it. He took us back on time with his explanations. The organization of this tour is simply amazing! Definitely, a must do tour!
This tour was a real treat firstly because we got to see the Colosseum in the daylight and at night and then also because it was the quietest time to see it so it felt like we were the only ones there. Without the mad rush of daytime tourists and vendors, we got to take in the grandeur of this monument in full effect. The guide took us through the views of the spectators as well as prisoners by showing us both the amphitheater part and chambers below. Definitely my favorite tour! Kirit.
Fantastic tour, well worth the money. The tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and wanted us to learn as much as possible in the time given(unfortunately sorry I can't remember her name but she was an archeologist). She made the tour and I'm sure afterwards she was absolutely shattered as she didn't stop talking all the way through, Would do it again definately.
Absolutely the highlight of our rome trip the guide was excellent her knowledge very good and her presentation fantastic highly recommend the twilight tour well worth the money no long lines and access all areas as well
Francesca from Dark Rome Tours - one of the companies Viator contracts out to - was awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening tour! The 2 day viator tour of Pompeii, Naples, Sorrento, and Capri contracted out to Cerrani was a disaster and a total waste of money. Be very careful which tours you book
