Tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable. Well worth the cost and being able to jump the queue and to enter the Colosseum was a major bonus. Fantastic experience
Would recommend to anyone thinking of booking a tour.
Wonderful tour! We had a great guide, Maryelle, who had loads of information to share and was exquisitely knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone. My husband ESPECIALLY appreciated the availability of earphones that would fit over his hearing aids. This really made his experience much better than otherwise.
Maria was warm, welcoming, and extremely knowledgable! Her 15 years of hands on archiological experience and passion greatly benefited our tour. She answered all our questions and pointed out details that we would have missed. We will most certainly use Viator and City Tours again.
Excellent tour and our guide was well qualified to explain all the history. Claudia took us back in time and brought the Romas back to life for us. Little did we know that a few days later we would see her quoted in The Times!
Sara N. was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. The size of the group was not too large and we had time for pictures.The three hours went by fast with just the right amount of rest stops and bathroom breaks.
I did not go on this tour, but the group that did were very pleased with it.
Really good tour. Very well organised, kept to time, group size as expected - not too big. Tour guide really knew his subject, very knowledgeable but approachable, felt comfortable asking questions. Would definitely recommend.
The tour was really interesting and I felt the guide was very experienced and able to tell us loads about the colosseum and its history. Definitely glad we decided to have a tour as we skipped a large que and learned loads about the place. The tour was three hours long, but very well paced with plenty of breaks. I usually am not a fan of organised tours, but very glad I decided to do this one.
It was FANTASTIC!!! Our guides were amazing, especially Manuella - Colosseum Tour. Such a history - mind blowing... Well worth spending money on those tours.
This was a great tour. Our guide was an archaeologist - so cool! It was great to see the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum! I highly recommend. Not too rushed and not too crowded :
A very enjoyed tour. Be prepared to walk lots, sunblock, water bottle,sunglasses and a hat are all a must have, as you are outside the whole time
Excellent tour. Davide, our tour guide knew his job well - where and when to avoid the crowds...
He was very efficient and professional and with a good sense of humor....
It was a hot day, the tour is tiring but well worthwhile...
My wife and I did the tour on September 17th. Emma was our guide. Her English was good and easy to understand. She was very knowledgable and informative. The tour meeting point was easy to find. We started at the Colosseum and were glad to have the Skip the Line tickets as the queues were long with a wait time of 2-3 hours. The Colosseum was simply awesome! Great insight from our guide helped to piece it all together. The second half of the tour was to the Forum and Palatine Hill. Once again, very informative. The ruins are a lot less intact, but with the help of the guide, it was made a whole lot clearer. Overall, a great afternoon.
This was an excellent tour! Well balanced, very informatove, and Alexandro did a very nice job.
Great tour, our guide Francesca was wonderful. She was engaging, kind, and very knowledgeable about the Colosseum and the contents. She was perfect!
We loved this tour and being able to skip the line. So glad we planned ahead and bought this before we left for Rome. Worth it!
Excellent tour. Our guide Marcela? was friendly, knowledgeable, and articulate. It's a 3 hour tour, but she held our attention the whole time. Highly recommend this tour to get the most out of your Rome trip.
A great tour. Our guide, sorry, forgot her name was very informed. It was a 100 degrees. Yet she tried to find plenty of shade. Several rest stops for us seniors. We saw so much history that I didn't know. To me it is the only way to see the Colosseum and Forum. Glad there was water along the way.
So much more than what we expected... this is a great tour, not only to see the Colosseum but to also visit Palatine Hill. Wonderful!!
Our tour guide Claudia was very knowledgeable and passionate about her subject matter. She was able to inform us and keep us more than interested he whole 3 hours. So glad we visited this part of Rome with her!!
