This was the best thing we did. The price was well worth the tour. We were able to see so much as our tour was early in the day. By the time we left there were huge lineups and you could not get a good view of any area for the amount of people around. Being able to go down below and up top was my highlight. I would highly recommend this tour.
I actually upgraded to the Unground tour which YOU HAVE TO DO BEFORE HAND, ONLINE The Viator website said ask about an upgrade so I arrived and asked, was told No, you have to do that weeks before. But the tour group was fantastic told me I would have a good chance if I came back the next morning bc someone might not show... sure enough I got on the tour. I'm all about views so it was fantastic!!
Thoroughly enjoyed the organisation and content. Katerina was so good on the Vatican tour we asked for her again.
We loved our half day tour of Ancient Rome and the Colosseum. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see ALL of the Colosseum. We met our guide easily and once in the Colosseum she handed us over to an archeologist who's knowledge was more than textbook information. After the Colosseum we were returned to our original guide who took us on to Palintine Hill and the Forum. She was an expert in everything we saw but she had so much enthusiasm that it was a fun day. She kept us interested and our tour even went over a bit as she wanted to show us just one more thing! Loved it!! I have forgotten her name but will try to post a photo if I can.
Loved the colosseum! Our guide Marriella was so informative and personable. It is obvious she loves her job and her Italian heritage. She was always concerned that everyone was happy and had whatever we needed, bathrooms, water etc.
I was very pleased with our guide and with the trip overall. We got a lot of information, our guide was very knowledgeable, and dd a great job of keeping us all together. It was well worth it to bypass the very long lines outside, and to have a guide to direct us through and highlight the most interesting aspects of Ancient Rome.
Tour guide was frinedly, competent and informative. Tour was well organized and comprehensive.
Fabulous tour with our guide, Claudia. She was informative, professional and humorous. We loved it
Excellent guide for the afternoon tour. She was a native of Rome but spoke very clearly and passionately about her home.
Fantastic tour with a fantastic leader. She was totally knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Rome and these buildings in particular. I would totally recommend this tour.
We had a good time walking around Ancient Rome and the Colosseum, the tour guide did a great job keeping us informed about Ancient Rome and the Colosseum.
Very interesting tour. Not for people with mobility issues! Although, in all fairness this was clearly mentioned before we booked the tour. Our guide was super and very knowledgeable, and was very easy to understand. my suggestion would be to give a short break between the Colosseum tour and the Forum tour and include some snacks / beverages. This tour involves a LOT of walking and is quite long...3 hours.
This tour was awesome. You really do skip the lines and you're led right onto the floor of the colosseum. You feel like one of the ancients as the other tourists are all on the concourse looking down at you. You're also taken into the inner walkways and chambers and it's very eerie to know you're walking where roman senators, plebes, and slaves once roamed. This guide was made more special by an awesome guide, Francesca. She paid great attention to the everyone in the group and made sure everyone knew where to go next.
We were so pleased with this tour. Our guide was very well versed on the subject of Ancient Rome and the Colosseum. She made the history of the time come alive. The time we spent went by very quickly.
If you are lucky you will get Claudia as your guide. She is an archaeologist and her knowledge was beyond explanation.
You must do this tour.
A wonderful afternoon walking around the colosseum with a lovely guide who explained and pointed things out so well-and she was great with children! Another excellent tour.
