Claudia was a very knowledgeable guide with a great personality. It was great to be taken through this ancient place with a professional archeologist. Note, it's a full three hours of walking. Reconsider if you have trouble being on your feet for a long length of time, especially if you're going in the summer, as we did. It is HOT and there aren't a lot of places with shade, although Claudia did her best to stop in shaded spots when possible. Her perspective and knowledge is what made this tour great. Thank you, Claudia!
I've done other Colosseum tours and this one was by far the best!! The audio system they use is fabulous, so you can always hear the guide even while walking, so we got lots of information. Totally worth it, great company and fabulous guides. Paying for the added underground and third floor were definitely worth it! Highly recommended!

Good tour, it was very hot when we were there, which made it hard to really enjoy. A little cooler would allow the tour to be more enjoyable. The guide tried to find shady spots, but that can be hardwood. Overall the tour was good and the guide was very knowledgeable.
This tour was fun and Alex was a great guide. Loved just walking past the long lines!
My daughter and I had a Fantastic time on our tour with our guide Marcos on Monday July 20 at 10am!
Marcos was extremely informative, answered our questions fully and truly lead us back in time during our tour.
It was awesome to have someone with so much knowledge and humor guide us! Along with speaking English with his Italian accent, was clear to understand! Thank you for helping us make memories!
Will definitely be using viator again in future trips!

We really enjoyed our tour of Ancient Rome. Our guide, though she claimed she knew very little English, was very informative and answered all of our questions in great detail. It was a very hot afternoon, so she was very considerate, too, letting us stop in the shade and fill up our water bottles all the time. We started with the Roman Forum first and then the Palatine Hill, finishing up with the Colosseum. There was quite a bit of walking, but all at a relaxed pace, and we never had to wait in lines for entrance to any of the sites.
We did this tour on one of the hottest and most crowded days of the summer. Our guide did an excellent job of finding shady spots and water to keep us going. Her knowledge of the sites was excellent and she shared her experiences working as an archeologist with us. I've visited in the paste and would recommend this tour highly over my previous guided experiences. REMEMBER to bring a water bottle with you!
This was a great tour. My guide was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable and interesting. You can tell he loved the subject matter. Highly recommend!
We had an excellent guide and the tour of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum was fantastic. We skipped the lines for the Colosseum and it was everything and more than I expected. I would highly recommend this tour for first time visitors to Rome.
The tour was amazing. Temperature in Rome was in the mid 90's with high humidity but in spite of the heat we were able to see much in a short amount of time. Our guide, Francesca Romana was extremely knowledgeable, funny and seemed to genuinely enjoy her job. She knows art. I am glad we did not have to wait in line until opening time!
excellent guide very informative, he even paid special attention to getting us in the shade and finding h20 in the near 100 degree heat.
Great tour and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She did an excellent job!
This tour was amazing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient. He answered questions and was very helpful with the group. It was also very hot and he was cognizant of this and did most of his discussions in the shade. The meeting place was easy to find and the directions on the voucher were easy to follow. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Very informative tour. English speaking guide who would answer any questions that you had. Would definitely recommend.
Colleseum part was great. Parthenon and others were good, but it was getting into the afternoon of a very hot day. The guide was terrific.
Excellent tour. The guide Marcos was very knowledgeable, informative and gave a very interesting presentation. We enjoyed the tour very much.
Francesca was a phenomenal guide! She did a fabulous job for us and our group on a very hot day! We enjoyed this tour immensely because of her!
This was an amazing tour! Our guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The directions provided to us to get us to the meeting place were easy to follow, the tour started on time, and we spent just enough time seeing both the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. I would definitely recommend this tour!
This was the longest tour we have done and our guide was full of facts and stories. My two teenagers enjoyed every minute of the tour and this was partly due to the guides ability of keeping everyone engaged.
An amazing tour with our guide Marina. She was very polite,pleasant and extremely knowledgable. The tour was everything we expected and more!!! Loved it!!!
The tour was great enjoyed lots and would recommmend to book in advance. Lots of walking involved but really enjoyed guide was very informative and a vety nice man
The tour was wonderful, and our guide, Agnes, was absolutely fantastic. She brought 2,000 year-old ruins to life, and her knowledge of and love for both ancient history and modern Rome were infectious. Highly recommend both the company and Agnes, in particular!
Sev was an amazing tour guide. His archaelogy background tremendously enhanced the tour. It was very infomrative and enjoyable to tour the Colosseum and Ancient Rome sites with him.
Always a good thing to do is to buy the skip the line passes. It is worth the extra cost! We didn't realize that it also came with a guide. The guide was awesome and gave us a lot of insight. Great tour!
We were led on this tour by the wonderful Sara N, nothing was too much trouble. Her knowledge and passion for passing it on are exceptional. I have wanted to visit the colosseum for so long and she really brought it to life. I can't thank her enough, a fantastic tour x
