We loved the tour. Our tour guide was extremely informative and brought along pictures for explanations. She kept giving us information even as we waited in line for the security check. They wasted no time, and got started exactly on time. We only did the 1 hour tour but it was so good that I wish I got the full length tour. Thank you!
We only had one hour (our mistake for booking this one over the two hour option) 30 minutes were spent waiting in line and 15 minutes were spent waiting for people to use the restroom as soon as we got in. Our tour guide was knowledgeable but the group was probably too big.
We were very pleased with our guide Adnan during our tour of the Colosseum! He was very polite and extremely knowledgeable! He took his time and was very happy to answer all questions! He was willing to spend extra time with us at the end of the tour. He is a keeper!
Despite the insane heat, this was the perfect way to see the coliseum. The use of radio enabled us to stop thinking about everything but the narrative, and most of all the guide's knowledge of the colosseum was robust enough to give a sense of the vast sweep of history here, yet colorful enough to keep our teen boys' attention throughout. Convenience-wise, it was a snap. We purchased online and had no wait except a very short one for security (which no one can avoid except perhaps the current emperor.) Would do it again. Was it an award-winning history lesson? No, but the basics were covered and it was exactly what we hoped for. Thank you
I hate to give this tour such a poor rating because the tour guide was a very nice person however, the information he gave us was minimal and not very engaging. I leaned more about the colosseum from an app that I downloaded and also by reading the information signs around the colosseum. My whole family ended up taking out the ear piece provided as it hurt our ears and all you could hear was static not the tour guide. I would prefer a skip the line without a guided tour.
I loved this tour!!! We were in Rome for only 3 days and trying to see everything was so happy to get this EXPRESS tour. It was one hour and hit the highlights of the Colosseum. After the hour of highlights we could explore as long as we wanted at our own pace. The headphones made it very easy to hear and we learned so much about this amazing arena! Definitely recommend.
Pelin was a great tour guide! She shared great info with us about the Colosseum and had a nice sense of humor and she brought us through the amazing structure filled with history! We are still talking about some of the tidbits of info she shared with us--very enjoyable!
From start to finish this was a most fascinating tour - the first we have done with Viator. A friendly welcome, a knowledgeable and engaging guide and an amazing venue. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend!
