This was a great introduction to our stay in Italy. Our guide was very informative and shared his knowledge very well. Both morning and afternoon tours gave us a real onsite into Ancient Rome. A day well spent.
Fabulous tour. Our local guide walked us through Roman history of the Colosseum and Forum. You could almost see how they lived. A highlight of our trip.
The guides were knowledgable and full of information. My husband and I had a wonderful time and certainly would recommend the trip to anyone.
Wonderful tour with very knowledgeable English speaking guide, Laura. Best to do in the morning due to heat later in the day.
For the Colosseum Tour our guide Sara was very good. Very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting with her fun facts.
The first part was the guided tour around the Colosseum, Forum and Palatino - our guide was experienced archaeologist Mariella ? - was the favourite tour of all my time in Rome. This morning tour was really a highlight of my stay - the commentary was excellent and fascinating and it really brought history to life. I would give this morning tour the highest marks possible. The afternoon walking tour was a good introduction to the main tourist areas of Rome, though perhaps more aimed at those wanting a shopping experience of Rome. But anyway, it included a visit to the Pantheon and there were free ice-creams. It'd give the afternoon walk 4 stars. A great double-tour to kick off any trip to Rome.
If I did this again, I would only do the morning tour and do the afternoon on my own. However, we hade great tour guides and it was a great experience.
The tour was great.. Our guide GiGi Was fantastic! His knowledge of the area was expansive!
One suggestion to travelers. Make sure you take water with you! The weather was perfect.
These were walking tours, whilst it was a long day both tours were well worth doing. The morning tour guide was an archeologist who was able to give us a great insight into the life of Roman times, the 'skip the line' was well worth the cost, as the lines to get into the Colosseum were very long. The afternoon tour guide had a degree in Art history and he too was very informative and had a great sense of humour, we covered a lot of ground all by foot, the Spanish steps, the Trevi fountain, The Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Piazza Campo Di Fiore and along the way he pointed out many buildings and the history of the architecture, again we were given individual hearing devices so that you could hear him at all times along the way. Highly recommend both these tours.
Tiffany McIver was fantastic!! Out of the three tour guides we had, she was by far, the most engaging, knowledgeable, and easiest to understand. It was evident she knew her material and brought such a high level of engagement to the tour. Our teenaged children appreciated her quick whit.
Alejandro was fantastic on the Colosseum portion but I did not make the afternoon portion due to miscommunication. Very attentive to the entire group and always available for personalized question answering. 100% recommended for the first part.
Super , very educative, Serafina was awesome! ....really great! Thanks .....love it
Very good value for money, got to see all the main sites in 1 day and the guides were very knowledgable and friendly. Would recommend highly
I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide spoke excellent English, we were on time, and learned so much history. You need to be in good shape because it is a lot of walking up hill and stairs. I would only do one tour and leave the other tour for another time if you are not young and energetic. It was a wonderful time and we met a lot of very nice people on the tour. Would definitely use Viator tours again.
The tour guides are so helpful and knowledgeable. Just heightens the experience.
This was an excellent tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. The tour group were very accommodating and our English speaking guide was excellent. I highly recommend this tour.
I would recommend this tour to anyone. It just could not be better. The guides were extraordinary. Well-prepared and fun.
A great tour, if your want to do the underground tour, that is separate, get them ASAP. Plan to go early in the morning, it is cooler and not as crowded.
despite the rain, we had a most informative tour in the morning and afternoon. you get to see a bit of the old and new and really feel like you get a feel for Rome. I totally recommend doing both tours.
Both tours were of good quality.
The morning tour with guide Claudia covered the Colosseum and Roman Forum and was very enjoyable as Claudia was very knowledgeable about the sights covered and was able to give a lot of detailed insight into their history.
The afternoon tour with guide Francesa was a bit less detailed, but covered many sights and piazzas that we simply wouldn't have seen had we not gone on this tour.
If you're only in Rome for a short time these two tours are a good way to cover a lot of the ancient city centre. My only gripe is that the end location of the morning tour is quite far away from the start of the afternoon tour. Bear in mind that both tours are walking tours - be prepared for a lot of walking!
Unfortunately we missed the morning tour of the Colosseum due to my misreading of my voucher.
The Best Of Rome Tour was magnificent and our guide was superb in knowledge and friendliness.
Highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get the best of the city's sights.
Alessandro did a wonderful job of holding everyone's interest on this informative tour. The immensity of the coliseum is staggering, yet the Roman forum with all of the background stories is a must-see. Thanks for the bringing magic book, it's a great visual tool.
Tour guide friendly, knowledgeable and made it very interesting. A definite must if in Rome. Really got to see so much. Highly recommend
We highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your stay in Rome if at all possible. Our guide at the Colosseum was absolutely amazing. The knowledge of the history of the area and presentation of the information was spectacular. Although this was the first tour of our trip we had booked several during our stay we later realized that the tour company in charge provides this type of experience on all of their offerings. Our afternoon walking tour guide was just as impressive and provided interesting information around every corner. It was great to get a basic feel for the layout and location of some of the major tourist destinations so that we would be able to locate them easier on our own. We ended up revisiting all of the tour stops on our own throughout the following days of our vacation just to experience and enjoy what they each had to offer.
