Very informative, great guide. A comprehensive overview of the Colosseum and area of the ancient Roman Forum. Be prepared to walk and climb!
Our tour guide (Francesca) for the Colosseum / Ancient Rome portion was terrific in terms of information and entertainment. The afternoon waling tour was well worth it - having the strories behind the sites / structures in Rome made the experience of exploring Rome more enjoyable.
This is wonderful tour and good value. You tour the Colosseum, the Forum and have a walking tour. You need to allow the full day for this tour.
Valentina was the guide for the Colosseum and Ancient Rome Tour and I feel bad that I can't remember the name of the gal that took us on the afternoon walk. Both did a great job and were able to answer any questions the group had. I had been to Rome before and walked around on my own but got so much more out of the city and the sites with a tour guide. They had little things to share that you can't get from a guide book. I thought the length of this tour is just right and there's plenty of time to get from one tour to the other during the break. I would highly recommend the tour.
Wonderful morning tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome with excellent professional commentary by our tour guide, Claudia. Our only problem was that you need more time to explore! Particularly when you subtract the time spent waiting for tour members to rejoin the group after the inevitable long queues for the toilets. Heartily recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
Our afternoon walking tour with Francesca was also very enjoyable. She took us to several places that are known to "the locals" including a fabulous bakery/pasticceria. The downside is trying to keep your energy levels up to manage a 3 hour walk after spending close on 4 hours at the morning tour. Unless you are fit, maybe do only one of the tours on any given day.
2 tours in 1.
Our tour guides for both tours were brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, and very accommodating.
The Colosseum and Ancient Rome must be done with a tour and guide.
The walking tour showed us a lot that we wouldn't otherwise know.
Great tour and a must if you are going. The guide was had a PHD in archeology and was extremely knowledgably and had shared a great passion during the tour
Lots of walking. Be prepared to walk a lot. Very informative guide.
We thoroughly enjoyed these 2 tours. Dario our morning guide was excellent at explaining the complex and interesting history of Ancient Rome. Manuella our afternoon guide was superb in making the centre of Rome interesting. This tour company's setup is a well oiled machine, we found the radio commentary ideal and the walking pace just right to take it all in, everything was seamless. Well done team. We'd highly recommend this tour.
Note: You'll need some stamina though - it was a very hot day and if you're not used to walking or standing all day it can be tiring - but hey there's so much to see and for us there wasn't alot of time, so this covered alot for us.
Our guide totally rocked!! Unfortunately I didn't write her name down and have forgotten it. She is an archeologist and actually worked at the Colosseum . She was able to show us some of what she herself discovered in one of the displays!! Her commentary was exceptional and really was some of the best we have experienced with our Viator tours. I can't imagine wandering around this site on my own...she really helped us to picture how it must have been in ancient times. Excellent tour!!!
Delighted that we booked this combination of tours,although it did make for a pretty intense day. I was a bit concerned about the meeting arrangements but they turned out to be very accurate and no problem. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and managed the tours very efficiently considering the number of competing tours and other visitors.We managed to cover a fair chunk of the main attractions on this day and I would recommend this trip to anyone going to Rome. We were pretty exhausted by the end but our expectations were exceeded.
