The skip the line option really worked.
The guides were really good (Lucia and David)
They provided us with headphones to be able to listen to Lucia which was very helpful.

Flavio was a fun guide for the Colosseum tour and made it very interesting. David was the funniest guide and very informative on the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill section of the tour. He was the best guide we had on all tours we enjoyed on our visit to Italy.

Our tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was THE WORST tour experience we have ever experienced. The tour started an hour late, only to wait in line for another 30-45 minutes. Our tour guide for the colosseum spoke for maybe 20 minutes, collected our radios and took off.... leaving us to wait another hour and a half to two hours for the next tour of the Roman Forum. Very disorganized and bad experience all around. We wasted the majority of our day on the tour that should've been 3 hours; we were there from 11am-430pm. Unacceptable. I reported our experience 4 days ago and have yet to get a resolution.

For the first time the most unorganized tour ever, the tour guide herself was embarrassed. We had to wait for such a long time to get in, some guy had to distribute the tickets who probably had an

My first trip to Rome and wanted to experience this tour with my sisters. The first half of the tour was with Christian from Crown Tours. He was extremely engaging, kept everyone’s interest, including the youngsters. Definitely learned a lot on this portion of the tour! The second portion was delayed at the entrance to the Coliseum, and the guide tried to find areas where he could talk and be heard, but that limited our ability to walk as he was giving his presentation. This portion of the tour was not geared for youngsters. All in all, well worth the money and extremely worth it to skip the long lines!!!

The tour started off well. The two guides were very knowledgeable. But for both the Palatine and Coloseum tours we got great commentary but didn't tour that much of the sites. We did not tour the Forum at all. We looked down on it from above, but didn't tour or hear much about it. I was mostly looking forward to the Forum tour. We left disappointed.

This tour was split into 2. One for the Colosseum and one for Palatine Hill Roman Forum. No headsets so it can be hard to hear what the guide is saying.
The guide Lumi was charming, entertaining and informative- she made this tour great.
