Our tour guide, Angelica, was extremely knowledgable and entertaining. The tour was better than anticipated. Well worth the expense for a semi-private tour to see the lower and upper areas.
Fantastic Tour! Our tour guide was lovely, and very informative. Great meeting spot adjacent to the Colosseum. Very organised. Fascinating wander through the Roman Forum and up to Palatine Hill. Then after a short toilet break, down to the Colosseum for a really interesting tour. We had been to the Colosseum many years ago, but decided to book a more thorough tour this time and we were not disappointed. Being able to access the underground chambers, being able to walk out on the arena, and then up to the upper tier gave us fabulous views around the inside and outside of the Colosseum. The children (13 and 9) were also enthralled for the entire 3.5 hours. A great tour. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour, well informed tour guide. Really enjoyed!!!
If you are going to Rome to do a tour of the Colosseum, for the love of all the is great and covered with sprinkles, make sure you do the underground and upper tier. Seeing the Colosseum from the 'stage', under the stage and from the highest public area was amazing. Really gives you a sense of the magnitude and awe that this building was created to give. Tour guides were VERY knowledgeable too which was great.
This was the best tour during our roman stay! Our main guide was Kiara who was amazing. Full of knowledge about the Coliseum, forum and Rome in general. She was also humorous. There is a lot of walking so having someone maintain your interest level is key. The group was small which was also great.. A portion of the tour we joined another group to tour the arena and lower levels of the coliseum. This portion was lead by Lucy who was also great. Would definitely recommend this tour. Be prepared to walk in the sun a lot.
We really enjoyed this tour especially the special access to restricted areas and very sweet and knowledgeable tour guide. Great tour!
This was by far the best tour I've ever taken. Our tour leader was Julietta, and she was wonderful. I'll definitely recommend Dark Rome tours to my friends.
Emma is the best guide ever! She was an English speaking Roman who had majored in art history and architcture in college. We saught her out for our tour of the Vatican. The small group was well worth the extra money and she was able to take use to spots inside the Colosseum that only her organization had permission for. Emma had also woeked at the Colosseum for several years and knew everyone.
Really enjoyed this tour. Pleasant, informative and small group was lovely. Our tour guide was lovely! I also love the arrangement with the headphones for commentary. Highly recommend this tour.
This was an amazing tour. We had access to areas of the Colosseum that others could not get to. The tour was well paced, with detailed explaination as to where we were and what we were seeing. Our guide provided detail information and insights about the civilization that existed at that time. This is a tour not to miss.
Well what an experiance !!! Dario was brilliant, so much knowledge and full of humour. He was the highlight of the tours. He really made it the best. We still say a Few of his lines because we think there so funny. And the fact he really reminds us of a friend we have. Thank you so much all of u xx
Great tour. Extremely knowledgeable guide. The best tour we had during our two weeks in Italy. Well worth the extra money to bypass the looooong lines and see the restricted areas.
Awesome tour! My wife and I did this as part of our honeymoon and had a blast. The tour was through Dark Rome and our guide, Simone, was amazing! He provided us with a glimpse into what life was like during the days of the gladiators. He was extremely knowledgable and a lot of fun. Being some of the lucky few that get to walk on the Colosseum floor, go down into the underground and then climbing up to the upper tier was an experience of the lifetime. After the Colosseum you get a guided tour through the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. Seeing Ancient Rome was a thrill of a lifetime. Simone, was able to bring Ancient Rome into the present day through his talks to showing pictures of what the ruins looked like before made this an incredible tour. It was very easy to find our guides and they were all very friendly. Thanks to Dark Rome, Simone, and Viator!
This tour was AMAZING !!! Beyond expectations. I would recommend it to anyone. I was very happy with this informative, visually stunning and excellent tour guide. Our guides name was Francesca and she knew her stuff. She was equally amazing. Thanks so much to Francesca and Viatour. Well worth the price.
