Mariella was FANTASTIC! Not only does she have a passion for the history of Rome as an archaeologist, but she was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. My husband and I were so pleased with her guided tour, stories, information, etc and would highly suggest this to anyone going to see the Colosseum and Roman Forum. If we had not done this tour, we would have missed out on so much fascinating information. BRAVO Mariella and THANK YOU!!!
The tour was fabulous. Our tour guide was very informed and provided lots of details throughout the tour.
Don't miss this one.
Very well organized, informative and we got to skip the lines. Not much waiting at all. Our guide Alessandro for the 3pm tour on September 22, 2015 was fabulous. I give him 5 stars too. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend to others. BTW we also did the 9 pm tour on the same day of the Vatican and St. Peters Basilica with viator which I also give 5 stars. Both tours on the same day is do-able and they actually complement each other very well.
Great information from the guide and the radio/earphones system really good in a busy urban environment.
Very good. Directions to meeting place clear. Our guide Claudia was top class, knew her topic in detail and explained it clearly and easily understood.
Colosseum was packed. Glad we didn't wait in line. Tour there was nice. Really enjoyed the tour of ancient Rome. This was way more than I expected. Best day in Rome.
This was a great tour. Alessandro our guide was very knowledgable and we learned a lot about all the sites we visited. Thanks.
We had travel challenges between our ship and Rome and although we arrived about 2 minutes before the tour was to start, that wasn't a problem. We were worried we would not make the please arrive 15 minutes ahead of time request.
This was a great tour. The guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. It was pouring rain and she did her best to keep us dry yet still enjoy the Colosseum. The trip to the Forum and Palatine Hill was as great as the Colosseum experience personally. Another great Viator experience.
Marina was an excellent tour guide! Also, we were so glad that we covered many beautiful sights through this tour.
The best way to enjoy the history and sights of the Colosseum and Roman Forum! A very informative tour - and skip the line entry is a must!
This tour was hosted by City Wonders, an excellent Rome tour company. The check in process was efficiently handled even though City Wonders was organizing at least a half dozen independent guided walks at the same time. Our guide was English fluent easy to understand and knowledgeable about the Colosseum and the Forum. The skip the line feature got us into the Colosseum quickly. The guide provided a steady historical narrative peppered with numerous historical anecdotes.He was an archaeology major that had actually spent time uncovering part of the ruins. He patiently answered every question. The tour took us to two Colosseum levels in a nearly 360 degree walk. Plenty of time to take photos. Then it was outside for a walk up and into the Forum. Again... lots of information offered in a unhurried pace. The guide covered all the historical monuments and ruins and ended with a walk up the Palatine Hill for an overview of the old Roman city. Small group, easy to understand guide... good value tour.
Mariella was GREAT!!! Have been to Rome many many times am in the travel business and she was one of the best tour guides I have ever had!
Mariella was extremely knowledgeable and had an archaeological background which helped explain the history of Rome. During our 3 hour tour we saw the Colosseum, Imperial Forums and Roman Forum. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
We had Rosa as our tour guide on 16/09/15, Rosa was brilliant so knowledgeable and engaging.
We did however, lose 2 members of our tour upon leaving the colosseum Rosa handled this very professionally, trying to communicate with them over the headsets provided this was rather entertaining and we were quickly reunited.
We got a great insight into Ancient Rome, would definitely recommend!
Our tour guide was Francesca,who when not being a tour guida, is an archeologist working on the Colosseum grounds. Therefore she was extremely knowledgeable and excited about the Colosseum, showing us the discoveries that she and her team had made. The tour was well organized and thorough. Definitely recommend.
Sev is an amazing tour guide! Very knowledgable and engaging. He kept the group engaged and was happy to answer questions.

Chiara was excellent. It was hot and humid but she took very good care of us taking breaks in the shade, etc. She was knowledgable and informative. Loved her and the tour!
Would highly recommend this tour.... our guide was a young lady who was very easy to understand and enjoyable to listen to.
Great interactions with the people on the tour. Made sure she spoke to us in places that had shelter which was a big help especially due to the warm September afternoon.
Although the tour was a little long and the weather was too hot nobodys fault!, our tour guide CLAUDIA was phenomenal. She is an archeologist and her passion for the subject of Ancient Rome ruins was great! We learned so much and her English was perfect. I probably wouldnt recommend this tour for kids 16, but a big YES for everyone else. There is so much to see/learn but if you dont know the significance of the ruins you are looking at, then it is lost on the onlookers. Therefore, I highly recommend this tour.
We enjoyed our tour given by Silvia! She gave us insights to how it was and how it is today. Even though it was very hot, she made our tour enjoyable!
Loved our guide. Not too crowded. Got to see everything easily.
