Absolutely awesome tour!!
The food is to die for! Best 4 course meal you will have in Rome. Great wines - and enough!!. Restaurant setting is jaw dropping and really 'grand'. Nice surprise with the live music we had.
The tour itself is great. Quiet, no sun! Just you, your fellow group members we were 14 and the guide.
Loved the experience. Best treat you can give yourself in Rome!
Great tour! The food was amazing....it came with four large courses, water, wine, and champaign. The tour at the colosseum was also very well done and at night there was hardly anyone there. I highly recommend the tour!
this tour was excellent, the meal was in a beautiful rooftop restaurant overlooking the forum, served with wine . The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The visit to the colosseum including underground chambers was second to none, the archaeologist made it come alive. We have visited Rome numerous times and this experience was one of the best and I would highly recommend it.
Fab experience with an extremely knowledgeable guide. We took the tour on my husbands 30th birthday and although it was a group tour, it was a very lovely and romantic evening - we dined on a private table (the food was exquisite). Then, the night tour or the colosseum - so special and unique!
The dinner venue was lovely, the staff great, but the food was not quite the standard I was hoping for. However the guide was fabulous and the night tour of the Colosseum was brilliant. There were no queues and the system in the evening is such that you hardly see another person or group as you explore this incredible building. An amazing experience.
This was a real highlight! A must! A lovely dinner with a breathtaking historical view! Then our small group was treated to an intimate tour of the Colosseum at night. Breathtaking! and no crowds!
Most enjoyable evening.Very interesting and dinner at The Forum Hotel was excellent.
Had to move to a different restaurant. Our great luck. It was fabulous. Highly recommend
Great time, dinner was very nice, the tour was vas very informative and Tiberias was a great guide. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to see the Colosseum in a different light!
This tour was fun and very informative. Our guide was very candid and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
The rooftop restaurant was amazing. The food was excellent. The evening walk with a very knowledgable and funny tour guide was brilliant. I would definately recommend this tour.
Beautiful location for dinner! Accommodating for gluten free meal. Totally awesome walk to the coliseum and seeing it at night. A great first night in Italy!
Highlight of our trip.
Great dinner/ restaurant .
Guide and adjustment to group dynamics exceptional (Tibor)
This tour was amazing! From the beginning to end it was a real VIP experience. We had a glass of Prosecco at the roof of the hotel while admiring the view of the ruins of the Forum. Then we had a delicious Roman dinner in the beautiful restaurant of the hotel. To finished and because the best should always be kept for the end, we had the tour of the Colosseum. It was a great experience to see this iconic attraction by night and when it is practically empty!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and she was able to answer all the questions we had. I absolutely loved this tour and I highly recommend it! Sandra
I really enjoyed this tour, it was a great experience! We started with a glass of prosecco at the rooftop terrace, which had very nice views, and then had a very tasty dinner which was typically Roman. The visit of the Colosseum by night was impressive! I had been to the Colosseum in the past and it was really crowded, and on this visit it was almost empty, which makes a big difference. Seeing the underground and third tier was my favourite part. Definitely recommend it!
guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Spoke excellent english. Very interesting tour with insights that astounded us. Nicee small number in our group. Fun and educational. Dinner was at a wonderful place and was great tasting with a good variety of choices. Highly recommend this tour.
What a fabulous night out. There was only three couples in our group. There was only six other groups in the whole Colosseum. Very special.
This was a truly unique and special experience! The dinner was in a great location, with beautiful views overlooking the Forum. It was fun to try typical Roman dishes in such a great setting, and the glass of prosecco on the terrace was a nice touch. I had visited the Colosseum multiple times before, but never at night. It was incredible to be among so few other people and to see the amazing structure in a new and special way. I highly recommended this experience for both first-time and repeat visitors to Rome!
Absolutely delicious meal, our guide Tibor was very knowledgeable, fun and clearly loves his job. The Colosseum against the dark sky was an amazing experience.
The only thing I will say is, the description and the post-sales 'well done, you bought the best' pitch are a touch misleading. I was under the impression that we would be the only group in the Colosseum, which was not the case. There were two other (much larger!) groups in at the same time as us. In fact, we were told that the way the company works is to buy whole blocks of time for the evening so that no other groups come in at the same time. It would explain the reason behind the higher cost vs other night tours, as well as being in a much smaller group. That said, we rarely crossed paths with the other groups and the guides did well not to ruin the atmosphere by all crowding around the same location at once.
A bit disappointed that we weren't able to go out onto the arena floor area as advertised, but were told beforehand so was not a surprise and at no point did it feel like the guide was struggling for interesting information to tell us.
The minor niggles aside take nothing away from the experience, which was fantastic and incredibly informative (I didn't realise gladiators were 'fat'! - the extra layer helped better protect their vital organs) we can definitely recommend this one. Tibor was absolutely brilliant.
My wife and I also really appreciated being sat on a table to ourselves, rather than altogether as a group, as it added to the romantic air of the high-class rooftop restaurant!
Top stuff! :)
