WORTH EVERY PENNY! This is by far the best tour and definitely WAY WAY WAY better doing a night tour! I am so grateful we booked ahead of time with Viator for our Colosseum night tour on our honeymoon! This was my favorite event/tour we did!

We enjoy every minute of it! Our guide was full of information! Seeing the Colosseum at night was amazing

If in Rome in the summer, you absolutely have to do this tour. First, the crowds are gone. When we did it, there was only one other tour group. It's much slower paced and more in depth. The arena is beautiful at night. It's an easy walk to the colosseum--all down hill. This is a magical tour and worth your time and money
Our tour guide was fabulous Patricia, I believe. Very knowledgeable! The night tour adds a dimension of reality of the time of the gladiators. A must see!
This tour was perfect for a hot hot hot July day! The tour started in the late evening when it started to cool down. There was nobody at the colosseum and we were the first group there. I can't believe how wonderful the tour was! The tour guide was amazing as well! Well done!
Truly amazing to see the underground area with only a few other people in the area! We had a very informative guide - I learned a lot of history and was able to imagine what it was really like when the gladiators were preparing for the games. I also really enjoyed the history of the Forum and the various structures from each ruler. This is a tour not to be missed!
I recently did this tour with two of my children, one 15 the other 25, tour was enjoyed by all three of us. Great tour guide, made tour interesting and enjoyable, would recommend to others
I saw the Coliseum several years ago, and this is by far the best way to visit. Not only does the tour happen in the evening when the summer temperatures are not so brutal, but there are no crowds, allowing you to really take in the space and get some great pictures. Be forwarded. We were less than 5 minutes late due to our plane being delayed into Rome, and we had to beg our way into the tour. Several others mentioned the same thing in other reviews and its no joke. In a city that is difficult to travel in, make sure you are there with plenty of time. You dont want to miss this tour.
tour was fantastic a must do if you want to see colosseum in quiet times when it is closed to public and at night
This was a very thorough tour, inclusive of the Roman Forum, loads of history beginning with Trajan's Column, and ending with a wonderful evening tour of the Colosseum. Our archaeologist-leader, Christina, was as knowledgeable as they come, very kind, and kept the pacing going comfortably. I get why they say that strollers and wheelchairs cannot be accommodated--their were a couple of steep hikes up stairs, and the walking is over 10,000 steps, but the evening breeze and lack of sweltering sun keeps the tour enjoyable. My family loved having the Colosseum all to ourselves at this hour, and it's not too dark for awesome photo opps! This was a highlight of our Roman holiday! We learned so much! :
Awesome experience, the Colosseum has a very different feel to it at night time which is worth experiencing. Not only do you get to see a different perspective of the site, but you are also out of the heat and dealing with absolutely no crowds.
We visited the colosseum earlier on the same day on our own - and the contrast to the after hours tour is incredible. This tour is worth every dollar. The dungeons are amazing, but have the colosseum virtually to yourself is priceless. We enjoyed every second. We visited the dungeons, ground floor and first tier - as well as the museum of level 1. I felt like we didn't miss anything by taking the evening tour... in fact, I think it's the best way to do it! Our guide did seem a little unsure/uneducated on a number of facts... but that didn't detract from the end experience at all :
Perfect amount of time to make it through all of the important highlights of this ruin. Our guide was super informative and kept a good pace. We were so grateful that this tour was not in the heat of the day. The evening breeze was welcomed as we enjoyed the views.
fantastic experience with hardly anyone else around. Our guide Sarah was great so much information
It was an excellent tour , our guide was very enthusiastic and made it a pleasure to walk around with her
By far our best tour. Do not tour the Colosseum by day if you have this option. As a single parent this was the only way to see the Colosseum. The day tour would of been too hot. We practically had the place to ourselves. I highly recommend booking ahead and snagging this tour. If you don't like crowds and heat this is the tour for you. Beautiful!!!!!! Well done Viator!!!
We toured the Colosseo firstly in the evening and such a moving experience.
So empty, which cannot be said for the following daytime when my fiancé and I toured - I'd commend this tour as being well worth the costs
Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Our guide was superb. I will be recommending this tour to all of my friends who travel Europe!
