So much fun! Clearly a wonderful experience for kids but it's fun for adults too. Wear comfortable clothing but don't worry, I was wearing a skirt with flat boots and it was fine. The instructor was awesome and the experience one we will never forget!
Great experience for 13 of us, ages 7- 44, and great entertainment for the older and youngest members of our family. Everyone participated, even those who said I didn't expect it to be so physical they all really got into it. We were all made to feel welcome, learned things and had a really great time. Our instructor made sure everyone participated to their ability and we all laughed a lot. It was the best experience of our family trip to Italy. Would highly recommend it for all ages.
Great family activity! We did the Gladiator school the afternoon of arrival - it was stimulating and the instructors were educational , stimulating and funny!!!! Would highly recommend to any family traveling to Rome.
We can strongly recommend this Family-Friendly tour through the Colosseum. We enjoyed it very much and the guide was nice, spoke slowly and clearly so we could well understand everything she said and she made everything interesting. My granddaughter age 9 enjoyed it very much as well as we grown ups did. She got to play games and also got some things to keep. If you are traveling with your family you should choose this tour, you will not regret it.
My family and I had a great time. It was so informative and so much fun. Would definitely recommend it.
My niece loved this tour!! She and the kids learned tons and had a blast. She said it was her favorite tour. The tour guide was phenomenal. Highly recommend it.
Excellant tour, well organised and great for kids. Thank you for a great experience
A great experience. Our instructor Piero was wonderful - knowledgeable, funny and entertaining - and both children and parents had fun. Great memories and photos to bring home. Our kids need activity-based learning, and they took more away from these 2 hours than from the Roman ruins we saw earlier in the day! Wholeheartedly recommend. We went for a late afternoon session, which was cooler, but watch out for the mosquitoes.
The whole family enjoyed this tour of the crypts and catacombs. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and informative. I highly recommend this tour for people of all ages.
This was great fun and very educational. We were the only 3 people there so was a bit concerned as to whether it was actually going to take place as the place was still locked when we got there, but the instructor was beyond excellent! He opened up, and then gave us a guided tour of their museum, explaining all of the weapons and military strategy.
We then began the training and he made it great fun. My 13 year old loved it - and the husband enjoyed beating him at the fighting!
Well worth it - and the kids will love it.
Very unique experience. Dimitri our guide had tons of info to share and answered all our questions. My kids are still talking about it.
Needs 10 stars!
Hands down the most fun thing we and #39;ve ever done on a holiday!
The gladiators were amazing, it was extremely educational but in a fun way my kids all had a blast, they are 11 7 and 4 even my daughter enjoyed it and she and #39;s a diva!
I would recommend this experience to anyone going to Rome!
We did the family friendly colosseum tour and it was amazing. My kids are shy so being called out to answer questions wasn't their thing, but I was happy to see them get involved. Our tour guide was excellent with kids, she had a lot of laminated pictures to show the kids to explain things and it helped to understand what the Colosseum used to look like. My only regret is they don't give you very much time in the actual Colosseum, inside the ring. We saw a lot of the exhibits and learned a lot about the outside, but actual time in the Colosseum was limited. We had to pull our kids away from the tour to snap some quick photos. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic trip with Serena our guide. We were only with another family who were lovely also so we were very lucky. The children receive a pop up book and there are are nice surprises on the way to keep them interested and engaged. I would definitely reccommend this tour to all families!
This is so much fun. My son and I both took part and really enjoyed it. It is more for kids but I was happy to be a big kid for a few hours! The staff there are very informative and passionate and really get you involved. One of my favourite tours on our trip!
This was the PERFECT thing to do with my two teens after visiting all those museums! My son 16 and daughter 12 loved this activity and it brought a whole new understanding to our visit to Rome. Emanuel was our amazing teacher. In addition to teaching the kids about Gladiators, he gave us an amazing and relevant 2 hour self defense course. WOW is all I can say!
Peter was one of the best guides for my family. He spoke english which was wonderful for us. On other tours, even though the guides were excellent, we would miss a lot because of their accent. Peter was a wealth of knowledge in both the culture and the sites we visited. He also kept us laughing while we were sweating in the heat! There is a lot of walking and make sure you were the appropriate clothing as well.

This was a great activity for my family of 2 teenager daughters 18 and 16 and son 8 years old. What a fun way to bond! Would highly recommend this activity! Be ready to be a gladiator!
Our kids loved it
My wife son and I all participated in the Gladiator training and thorooughly enjoyed it! It was an event highly recommended to us by friends and family and we were certainly rewarded for heeding their advice. Definitely suggest attending.
