Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Colosseum. Dennis was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Finding the starting point for the tour was a bit glad we checked it out the day before, or we surely would have missed the tour.

We used Viator to see the Colleseum on Tuesday 30th October 2018. Departing on an early morning walking tour. Our guide Georgio was fantastic and he went at a pace which suited the whole party (around 12 from memory).I'm so glad I went with an organised tour as you really miss so much if you do it alone. We loved the history and the and politics which Georgio managed to deliver in an understandable way even indicating ways that history could have been changed depending on the teller at the time. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. From finding the starting point to the length of the tour, value for money was spot on and information was clear and understandable. Thank you!

This was a long tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable as well as efficient in keeping the group moving. We had visited the coliseum years ago without a guide. This time we learned so much. Our guide knew not only that which was covered on the tour but could also explain other areas of interest in Rome.

I had a wonderful time, the guide was wonderful and well informed I would recommend going on an early tour,as it gets more crowded as the day wore on. Also this tour included a tour of the surrounding outside of the colosseum, definitely a plus

We had Flavia. She was absolutely fantastic. This is a three hour tour and our whole group was engaged with the history delivered by flavia the entire time. Unbelievable experience walking in the footsteps of Ancient Rome. Highly recommend!!

Fantastic tour from start to finish. Our guide, Dennis, was so enthusiastic, warm and informative! We learned so much. The tour was so engaging. We can't recommend this tour enough.

Our first visit to Rome and it may be a while until we come again so I wanted to make the most of our few days here. I highly recommend this way to enjoy walking through the ancient city (we went in October) with an excellent guide. Well worth the money in making Rome come alive (and skip the queues).

The guide was excellent! So informative, easy to understand. Very knowledgeable even for some of off the point questions

The tour with Ilaria was okay but pretty functional. I am not sure if she was having an off day, but much of what she said was functional but lacking in exciting or insightful details that would have made the tour of one of the worlds most amazing cities memorable. I am sure what she told us and what we saw was part of the tour, but compared to our recent tour of Firenze this was very functional.
What was disappointing was that despite there being 6 kids aged 4 to 15 in a group of 18 so 1/3rd kids she made no effort to engage the children, tell them interesting anecdotes or keep them interested with little insights which is what I would expect for a 45 per person tour.
A shame but I could not recommend this tour

Our guide Georgio was amazing, he really knew everything about the Coliseum and Ancient Rome. We learned so much on our tour and even bought a little before and after book to remember what he said. Be aware that the tour is a little longer than most so bring water and a snack :) (we spent 3.5 hours but that might have been due to the bathroom break lines being so long). All in all we had a great time and learned a lot! highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Georgio
