Completely captivating! The tour guide was very informative and gave you a real feel of what it was like to be a Gladiator, or in the crowd. The best part of my trip!!!

We had a very good guide. English was pretty good. Loved the tour at night. It would have been helpful to have a flashlight to see the pictures. A great experience.

Great tour of the colosseum by night, in the day it is crowed and packed. However the night tour is quiet and few people. Worth paying the extra, plus you got to go on the arena floor and see the underground area. Totally different feel of the place at night.

I have seen the Coluseum by day with the crowds, this was so peaceful. Be aware that you go all the way down but you are along the side looking in, you do not walk out into the arena. You do also view from the upper levels and look at the displays.

Wow!!! Well worth the money spent on this tour just to be in the Colosseum at night when it was closed to the public. My husband and I were amazed that we were there at sunset and there was only our small tour of 30 people inside!! Our pictures are amazing, there are no people in them, no crowds! The Ancient Rome tour was great as well, but we will never forget the feeling of being inside the Colosseum essentially alone! AMAZING!

This was amazing! Much better than doing a day tour. The number of people that were in the Colosseum when we were was minimal, which made this a very enjoyable tour. We also enjoyed the tour leading up to the Colosseum. Very informative and made for a great evening!

If you do one thing in Rome, do this! It was amazing! Francesca, our tour guide was so knowledgable and was in fact one of the archealogists who unearthed the last partially remaining statue in coliseum. With few people in the coliseum and at that time of night it's perfect for a visit. No crowds :)

Tour was great, we had a fun group of people. The tour guide was very informative, well spoken, and enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge. She was able to answer everyone's questions thoroughly. After 3 short tours in Italy, I will forever book with Viator!!

Such a great tour giving you the best insight to how the Colosseum was used and what history lies inside those walls. No queues, no bustling crowds, sunset through the arches and now treasured memories. Without a doubt, the highlight of my trip!

Juliet's tour was great. Maybe the lack of crowds or her passion for the city had something to do with it - but it was fun! While English was not her native language - she spoke clearly enough to be easily understood. She had a nice sense of humor and was extremely knowledgeable.

Wonderful tour. We came in may and the days are hot but the night tour was much cooler. Seeing it at night has no crowds except for the other small night tours. Our guide was great with lots of knowledge about the collisieum and the Roman forum. I would do this tour again.

This tour is definitely worth the little extra amount of money! You are given the opportunity to see and explore the Colosseum at night with very few people in the structure, compared to being crammed in like sardines during the day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeableand extremely personable!

During the day about 25,000 people go through the Colosseum but at night it closes and only about 100 people get to go round it. We are so pleased we did it this way. Gabrielli met us at Trajan's Column which puzzled us slightly as it is quite a way from the Colosseum but there was method to that. We first had a gentle stroll around parts of the old town in that area while Gabrielli told us a great deal about the historic sites to be found there, and we gradually moved closer to the Colosseum. Once inside the Colosseum Gabrielli walked us around the whole place, including the underground areas which not everyone can access. He certainly knows his subject and talked in a very evocative way about the uses to which the Colosseum was put - I could almost SEE the crowds and the gladiators, feel the misery in the prisoner cages etc. There is a bit of a climb to the top tier but there is a lift if the stairs are too much, however Gabrielli kept the pace suitable for everyone there. I loved the tour before we got to the Colosseum, it was a real bonus to find out some more of the history, ancient and modern, of the area. The Colosseum itself was mind blowing. I would highly recommend this tour and can't rate Gabrielli highly enough. If you don't like crowds, this is the way to go. It was so much cooler too than going round in the high heat of the day.

Stephanie was excellent and the entire tour was amazing! Seeing the city and visiting the colosseum at night put a new face on these sites. Our small group pretty much had the entire colosseum to ourselves which made the experience even better. Highly recommended!!
