Tour started 45 mins late and we had kids so booked the time for reason. The tour was 2 parts and each was good but much of the info was duplicate so would have been better to have different info discussed and make it more interesting/engaging

BUYER BEWARE: The tour does NOT start at 7pm and you don't enter Colosseum until 8:20pm!!!

The tour does not start at 7pm. You are served snacks and drinks for 20 mins., then walked to a park above the Metro entrance where the group sits for 55 mins. listening to the same information and same photos/illustrations that the professional tour guide inside the Colosseum uses. Our 'half' of the tour did not enter the Colosseum until 8:20pm; the other half not until 8:30 pm. Wasted 1 hour 20 mins and paid twice what we could have paid, using a different company. Viator told me it was a two hour tour from 7-9 pm. Three adults and one child at more than $400.00 was not just a waste of time, it also was a waste of money. You can find better quality tours that actually enter the Colosseum at the time stated and don't use the same tour information/illustrations as the professional Colosseum guides. We had so looked forward to this tour and all of us were disappointed at how this tour was described. Once inside, you get the same tour guides - professional Colosseum staff -the other group tour companies.
While the e-mails from the tour operator indicated that you were to appear 15 minutes before the start of the tour at 9 p.m., when we checked in at this time, the staff member said we were late by 45 minutes. He indicated we were to be there an hour before. Our exchange with him was very poor. We were then shuffled between 3 different tour guides. Great content, poor tour management.
Really enjoyed this tour. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate tour guides.Small numbers, and well spread out so that you get to really experience the Collesum in the cool and beauty of the twilight.
Would highly recommend.
This was meant to be a 40 minute tour outside the colosseum followed by a tour inside. Our tour was delayed, initially first being told our guide was sick. We were shown around the outside of the colosseum with another Tour group, and just told to wait around for our entrance time into the colosseum. I had booked an 8pm tour which and was meant to be inside by 9pm. Instead it was nearly 9:35 before we got in, by which point it was too dark to take any photos. We were put onto an official tour for the inside of the colosseum and found out that others had just paid €24 from the official website. This was €70 more to get a cheap glass of Prosecco and a 5 minute tour outside the colosseum. It was so badly organized and tbh feels like a scam. The operator probably purchased the €24 ticket from the colosseum and wacked on an extortionate amount and dressed it up with a glass of proscecco. When I complained to viator- they didn’t do anything about it. I have never felt so scammed in my life! Do not fall for this!
Amazing tour of the colosseum at night with an experienced and knowledgable guide. Best part of the tour is that you get to skip all of the tourist at night and you feel like you have the whole colosseum to yourself.
Our evening tour was cancelled so we took a day one instead. We couldn't go to the underground because of rain but the rest of the tour was good. It as hard to hear the guide because of so many people touring the colosseum.
Aaron was our guide for the first half of the tour and provided the history of the Colosseo. Once we got inside it was breathtaking stand on the wooden floor where the gladiators once stood and looked up into the audience. We where a group of 20 and pretty much had the place to ourselves after the public left. It was a great value.
