This tour was exceptional! To be able to go underground as well as to the third tier for views was well worth it. Our guide Vasco was tremendous. So knowledgeable of the subject and very interesting. He kept our attention fully. I even learned that we were fibbed to by the nuns regarding religious persecution!! Shame on them. Vasco kept us interested for the full 3 hours of the tour. He did have a fellow guide for the underground and she was great also. To see how animals were lifted into the arena was informative. Something else I did not know. The Vestal Virgins home as well as the Forum and Palatine Hills were stunning! And more views from that part of the tour also. Vasco also recommended some museums that were near by that also had ruins from the Forum. His knowledge of area restaurants that were more local than touristy was excellent also!! He even had visuals, a book with reproduction drawings of what the area looked like in Roman times. Very helpful and it just brought more to the tour. We had Viator tours in 2015 and we will continue to use the company for tours such as this. Those hard to get to places where you do not want to waste time waiting for tickets or in lines. Well worth the value. And a final thanks to Vasco/Antonio, he will get the joke!
One of the most iconic structures on earth didn't disappoint, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and their English was excellent. Having completed the tour of the colosseum, one could have expected the remaining activities to be less interesting but they weren't and the tour of the roman forum was full of fascinating insights. Our guide, Maria, was extremely well informed and a perfect host.
Vasco our guide was excellent - He was informative and made the whole 3 hours extremely interesting and entertaining.
A great day with Stephanie.
Really enjoyed this tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Skipping the line at the colosseum was great and a huge time saver. Our tour guide Maria was great and really added to the experience. She especially shined at the Roman Forum bringing the ruins to life and really painting a picture of the majesty of what this area once was. Without her I would have just been staring at a bunch of ruins and not really sure what I was looking at. Would recommend.
Enjoyed the experience to see behind the scenes at this fantastic building

Very informative tour. I recommend it to those looking to learn about Colosseum and Roman forums
3rd time to Rome and the Colosseum and this was by far the best tour! The VIP area access is such a bonus and the guides are terrific and full of interesting info you'd miss otherwise. So worth the price!
This tour took us to the underground chambers and up to the platform and a few other behind-the-scenes locations. One of the best tours I have ever taken.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, recreated the times for us! I would recommend this tour to anyone.
One of the best tours I have ever been on, well worth it!
The Colosseum was by far the highlight of my trip. The underground and Upper Tier were brilliant and defiantly worth a visit. would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in the Colosseum and its history.
I can't remember the name of our guide but she was great. She spoke with passion and knowledge and was fun to listen too. I would recommend this tour to everyone...
It must and one of the highlight of our Italy tour. Its a five star company with all the guides and facilities in five star standards. We got special access to underground chambers and is as said in the tour description. Both our guides were very knowledgeable and very informative and provide detailed description on sites visited.
Excellent value for the money and a must as the detail provided by the tour guide you would never know if you did it alone.

This tour was absolutely fantastic! Our lovely guide Alessandra was so knowledgeable in Roman history and was very patient - we learnt so much more being in a small tour group. The access to the underground area was amazing as was the very top level - fantastic views - well worth the extra money! Lots of ground to cover but well worth every step - so many ancient buildings to see on one site. Would highly recommend this trip.

If you want to go to the Colosseum and Forum, do yourself a favour and pay the extra money to do this. The guides were brilliant, and the opportunity to see so much of the Colosseum was special. Very worthwhile! Pack yourself a snack as you finish inside the Forum so can stay longer.
This was an amazing experience I highly recommend to visitors of Rome. Our tour guide, Lucca, was fantastic!!! His passion, enthusiasm, and love for Rome was obvious, and set the tone for a wonderful 3 hours of touring the Colosseum and the Roman forums. This is not to be missed! In a small group of 6, we were taken to the lower and upper levels of the Colosseum for special views of the entire complex and great photo opportunities. He really created an image in our minds of what it must have been like thousands of years ago. He is very knowledgeable, warm, and, for us, was the perfect guide! There is a lot of walking, so bring comfortable shoes. I cannot recommend this tour enough!
Good tour and tour guide, well planned, with a lot of good info.
Great tour. Magdalena was very knowledgeable and fun. She made the history come alive. The directions were very clear and we found our tour with no problems. The audio system was a big plus. Would definitely recommend.
Great tour! Totally worth the money! Our tour guide Laura was fabulous and very knowledgeable. even though it wasn and #39;t high season, the placentral was packed and the lines were very long. So sad we didn and #39;t booked more tours!
tour guilds are fantastic
Best way to see this remarkable building and historical Roman influence. Once again extremely knowledgeable guide was brilliant.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a wealth of information throughout the tour. His sense of humor brought these areas of Rome to life.
Getting to go to underground and skipping the lines was well worth the money. If you are going to come all this way a tour guide really helps you not miss anything important.
