One of the highlights of our Trip! We had the most informative tour guides. He was part of the Rome Archeological society and was like a walking Encyclopedia , amazing human. As far as the tour: seeing the basement subfloor of the Colosseum at night was very impressive and humbling. If you like Museums go to the Vatican, if you like actually walking into an archeological site where the events actually happened this is the tour for you.
A wonderful tour,but had trouble finding the meeting place. Our Guide was knowledgeable and the night tour was so much better than the crowds during the day. I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Italy.
Beautiful to see the Colosseum at night with no crowds and no lines tour guide Bruno was informative and provided a steady, interesting flow of information without being at all annoying tour was long, with a lot of walking, but a highlight of our stay in Rome for the same reasons I would recommend this tour to others
Thoroughly enjoyed our night Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour. Great guide. We thought we had seen most of Rome, but our guide took us to a few places we hadn't seen and gave us lots of historical facts. The walk through the Colosseum at night, no crowds, was fantastic. Whole different look at night. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
The female guide we had was an archaeologist who gave us a real insight into all the ruins in the area prior to heading down and getting inside the Colosseum. Bypassing the entry line was a bonus, but the enthusiasm of the tour guide really made the tour fantastic.
Excellent! 12 out of 10. From the introduction to the final farewell, the tour was conducted to the highest degree of professionalism. Our guide Irene albeit only tiny, was a giant of information, facts and figures, all presented with a great amount of interest and passion. Her knowledge of the subject was immense and delivered with tremendous enthusiasm, tinted with a touch of humour. I cannot imagine another person guiding this tour as well as she did. The highlight of the tour was to be inside the Colosseum in a group no more than twenty of only around 100 persons total in five groups wide apart, truly a surreal moment. Strongly recommend this tour to everyone.
Fantastic tour. Our guide was absolutely amazing, informative and very knowledgeable. Seeing the Colosseum at night was an unbelievable experience. Would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Rome.
We loved this one. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
I would definitly reccommend this might tour no crowds and get to see areas not open during the day
Went to rome with my husband and two sons 19 and 17. We all loved it! This tour had been recommended by someone and I am sooooo glad we did this! It was less crowded and the ambience of touring the Colosseum at night added to the whole experience!! Our guide was Francesca and she was really great! She seemed to enjoy giving the tour and did it with excitement! This is an absolute must on anyones itinerary! Thank you Viator.
Spent a long weekend in Rome and this was the jewel in the crown. Gabi was an incredible tour guide! So knowledgeable and enthusiastic about ancient Rome! Being the only people on the arena floor with a clear nights sky was truly amazing.
Great, knowledgable tour guide. It was exciting and informative. We had a fantastic time!
Amazing. The absolute best way to see the colosseum. Our guide was informative but almost got irritated at those of us who wanted to take photos...he indicated we would have time to do so, but never stopped in order for us to actually take photos! Regardless, it was an excellent tour and worth every penny.
Highly recommended. Tour guide was great. Colosseum at night is gorgeous and get to see and learn about the forums along the way. As a side note, we were not able to do the underground portion as it had rained and it floods very easily, so keep that in mind if it's something you really want to see.
Would highly recommend this tour. Its so much cooler and quieter at night. The tour guild was very engaging and had a lot general knowledge about other countries that blended very well with the ancient world. She made the tour very interesting and helped spark your imagination to the world around you. The colosseum and ancient world are breath taking at night also. Can not say enough good things about this tour. If i go back to rome i would do it again

This night tour was outstanding. Since it was late August and exceptional hot in Rome, this early evening tour of the Forum area and the Colosseum was exceptional. The crowds around the area was greatly reduced from the day time and luckily there was also a full moon!
My husband and I loved this tour! Our tour guide, Fabio, was knowledgeable, friendly, and humorous. We really enjoyed learning about the different rulers of Ancient Rome and seeing the ruins and architecture in the city. The Colosseum at night was incredibly special. We were able to tour the main tier and even walked down below the arena. Fabio enticed us with many stories about the Colosseum. We highly recommend this tour. Grazie, Fabio!
Punctual, in control, knowledgeable, fun, great pace, wonderful guide.
Excellent tour, commentary top notch, tour leader knew what he was talking about.
Fantastic! Charming, knowledgeable and at times very humorous guide. Loved the walking tour prior to entering the Colosseum. Advantages of going in the evening is that there are no crowds we were one of only 2 group touring that evening. Would highly recommend to anyone going to Rome.
Excellent tour! Our guide Gabrielle was a lovely guy and very informed! Great way to see the Colosseum!
What a great decision to go onto this night tour. The guide was excellent - he didn't stop talking for the whole time but made the tour so informative and entertaining. It was amazing to be at the Colosseum when there are no daytime tourists and we were the first of the night tourists. For a while our tour were the only people in the Colosseum!. Everything went very smoothly and I could highly recommend this tour and company.
Very informative guide. What a great way to see the Colosseum without crowds of people around. It was very interesting to see the lower levels as well. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
