This was an excellent tour, I would completely recommend it and will definitely use Viator again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our small group tour of the Colossuem with Simone. Simone was funny, articulated, an expert of the subject matter and he was so passionate about what he was talking about. Our 3 hours with him went very quickly. He made the history came alive and we wished it would last longer so we could learn more from him.
I would recommend Dark Rome Tours to anybody. This is the way to go to see the Colosseum. The extra cost was well worth it.
This was a highlight of my husband's experience in Rome. The history that we would not have been able to know had it not been for our guide. The entire tour was well worth the money.
Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide all in all and enjoyable trip.
The Colosseum is an amazing structure in itself but we thought the guided tour made a massive difference to our experience. Not queueing was a big plus in the off season and would be even more so in the summer, that is the first must on the list. Our tour guide was called Nina and her knowledge was only rivalled by her skill in delivering every bit of information in bitesize chunks with a bit of humour thrown in for good measure. We felt we were really given a true historical representation of how the building was used backed up by pictures of how everything would have looked in its prime. The additions of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill would have been almost non-events without a proper guide, we learnt a lot more and had a better experience than we would have done with just a book.
Loads of info about the colosseo and forum romanum. Great guide!
Tour guide was great and informative. bring good walking shoes. been there a number of times but learnt more this visit. Would recommend to all
Excellent day. Very professional female tour guide ( also an archaeologists ) very knowledgeable made the day special.
Tour guide and tour fantastic, would recommend as the tour guide knew so much.
We all learned so much and really enjoyed our guide. Her enthusiasm was infectious.
This is a great tour to take early in your trip to Rome because, as well as showing you the ancient sites and sights, it gives you a chance to orient yourself in the city. Our tour guide, Serafina, was knowledgable, amusing and worked hard to give us a sense of the social history of ancient Rome. As well as telling us the names of places, she told us how they were used and by whom, so we were encouraged to try to imagine 'what it was really like'. The group was a reasonable size, so that anyone who wanted to had a chance to pick her brains for more information. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
