Brilliant give access to parts of the Colosseum not normaly open to the general public. Allows you to view the building in a small quiet group. Highly recommended.
This tour was the perfect choice to allow us to see these 3 ancient sites Colosseum, Forum, Palatine Hill. Tour was just long enough to enjoy and not feel rushed. We had time at the end to explore the Palatine hill museum as well. Elizabetha was an excellent, enthusiastic guide, and an archeologist by training. I am certain my daughter and I would not have appreciated what we saw as much, without our guide's excellent narrative and stories. I had been to Rome 30 years prior, but felt I never really appreciated world history as I did after this day. We were outside for the entire tour and the weather was perfect for a January day.
Wonderful, amazing to step on the grounds where so many were entertained and some lost their lives. So much history here. We bought the pass the lines, early entry and went down below where the animals and slaves were kept. It is ruins but if you use your imagination you will appreciate the history. wonderful time in Roma
Incredible tour. Spent the day going back in time. Our guide was an archaeologist. He had vast knowledge about the architecture, history, and the drama ancient Rome. This was an amazing tour. A must do when in Rome
The tour was excellent. Very informative. Just be aware that is a walking tour that may not be suitable for older folks or those have issues of walking at a faster pace.

Oh boy! This was fantastic. before we headed into the Colosseum we did an extensive walking tour of the Roman Forum. Our guide was brilliant. Talked us through all the inmportant locations and really brought the forum to life and helped us visualise what a day would look and feel like. Stepping inside the Colosseum was an experieince I'll never forget. Going below the arena floor to where the animals and slaves were held was fantastic. A must do in Rome
Great way to get the history and see the Colloseum!
How can you not do this tour.
Rosie was an incredibly informative guide, and because it was Christmas week the museums were very crowded. No matter where we were able to make our stop to talk as a group, in any random spot, Rosie had vital information to share about any piece of art.
The tour guide was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and interesting.
Well worth the money
We had an amazing tour!! Our guide talked us through the history of the area and shared with us her love for Rome what what made it the city it is today. The underground tour at the Colosseum was handed off to an archeologist who was equally as amazing, her love for the history that was at our very feet and hands reach was palatable. She painted verbal pictures of what took place in the underground chamber and who had access to each level of the colosseum.
I would highly recommend both Viator and this excursion. Simply amazing and worth the price!
Bike tour was fantastic! Emmanuelle was a great guide- passionate about the city and highly informative. He was also very focused on safety! ( it was however very safe and we cycled areas with very little traffic! )Saw a side or Rome we never would have seen otherwise!

This was an excellent tour of the Colosseum. We've done Colosseum tours before, but now they have opened the underground area making it better. The guide was great. Always more to see and learn. I recommend it if you haven't been in a few years.
If you are going to see the Colosseum go on this tour it covers everything from top to bottom. literally. Fantastic informative guides, told me so much I can't remember it all but it was very entertaining too, not boring. It was so hot that I was very grateful we skipped the lines and went straight in once inside it was cool and pleasant, tour was very well organised and I enjoyed it a lot would definitely do it again.
Absolutely amazing the tour guides were brilliant thank you a must if you go to Rome their knowledge of the history and architecture brilliant.
Excellent tour which we thoroughly enjoyed! We were privileged to be accompanied by an archaeologist, Elizabeth who was our guide on the tour. Huge thanks to Elizabeth who was so professional, courteous and informative and made the tour so special.
Fantastic tour. Fabrizio was the man! Highly recommended.
This tour was marvellous going all around the colosseum and Rome forum we had great time going through old history of Rome with the our wonderful guide Francesca who was more that capable of delivering history to us smoothly and elegently she just made us want more and more thank you for such an informative guide and a wonderful tour.
The tour of the Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill was fantastic. Paulo was a great guide who was extremely knowledgeable and his stories of the areas really brought them to life. The only minor downside was the ice that was on the arena floor of the Colosseum which caused the Colosseum staff to close off access to the floor, but that allowed us more time in the underground chambers which are amazing to see.
Would recommend this tour and Paulo to anybody wanting to explore Old Rome.
amazing tour. WOW. the history is stunning.
This tour was fantastic. Lara really knew her stuff and was fun to walk around with. She answered all questions thoroughly and really made an effort to include everyone. I am so glad we did this tour!
So wonderful! Our guide Julia really brought the Colosseum and Ancient Rome to life. She was enthusiastic and a joy to listen to. We learned so much, worth every penny.
We had a fantastically good 3 hour trip. No long queue for the tickets and a private guide for the two of us. I did not realise that I had arranged for that rather than a group tour but am very glad I did. Our guide was brilliant: well informed took everything at the right pace and was a joy to be with. Quite a lot of walking - but that is because there is a great deal to see. All fascinating and excellently explained.
