Great tour guide and the archaeologist that gave an in depth explanation of the Colosseum answered any questions. Worth every penny.
Great tour on a very hot day! Our guide was knowledgeable with interesting insight. We were met by an archeologist at the Colosseum that provided a well rounded experience.
Fantastic tour! Definitely the highlight of our 7 days in Rome.
From start to finish this was an excellent tour. Well organised and managed at all stages. We went on this particular tour as it enabled access to the lower and upper areas of the Colusseum. This was well worth the extra money. Very interesting and entertaining, thoroughly recommended.
Excellent guide, Max and Lara who took us round the underground chambers. So much information to take in and these guys new how to explain it all. So very interesting
Our guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and spoke excellent English! Outstanding experience!
Fantastic tour with very enjoyable and knowledgeable tour guide. Would strongly recommend this and to book in advance.
Fantastic tour with the local guide whose great descriptions of the activities of the Colosseum brought the ruins to life for me. The City Tour guide who led us through the Forum and Palantine Hill was less energetic and colorful in her commentary.
Great tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and the trip underground was worth the extra cost.
Couldn't have asked for a better tour.
Our guide was called Sev, an American archaeologist teaching in Rome and his knowledge was outstanding, combined with a good sense of humour and a genuine care that totally made the tour.
The tour itself was excellent, covering many parts of the Colosseum that the general public don't get to see, then on to the Forum with lots of eye opening facts.
Well worth the money, you don't get to say that very often these days.
Don't forget your water if it's going to be a hot day.
Many thanks Sev, from the family on the right side of Hadrian's Wall !
Fantastic tour. Guides were very knowledgable and entertaining. We were booked on the 9:30am tour but we had to transfer to the 11:15am tour. No reason why. The down side was that it was a very hot day with the Colosseum part of the tour not ending until about 2:30pm and then we off to Palatino and the Forum. A long tour in the middle of the day with no break or option to buy water.
A lot of people opted out of the guided part of Palatino and instead were given their tickets with a view to go later in the day.
Great tour however this company is not licensed to visit the underground Colosseum , we were handed off to another guide from the company who is licensed
I would definitely recommend this tour! The tour guides we had 2 were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tour was well organized with the skip the line working nicely. We went into areas that the average ticket buyer did not get into and it was very interesting. The tour guides gave time to take photos and really take in the environment. It was not rushed. It was quite a walk in the hot sun to the Forum and Palantine Hill, but the tour guide had nothing to do with that. Most of our tour dropped out due to the walk in the heat -- I completed the tour and enjoyed it very much. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent tour. Our guide, Valentina, was knowledgeable and very personable. She was happy to answer all of our questions and was very flexible. The ruins and their story are fascinating. Seeing the Colosseum and understanding its history and development is an essential part of getting to know Rome for any visitor. I highly recommend this tour.
This tour was fantastic. Really loved the guides. They were friendly, informative and very conversational.
I was glad we had the beat the line tickets. There were lines everywhere! Our guide ws very knowledgeable and pleasant.Her archeology studies definitely was a plus. Bring a bottle of water along, you will need it. Especially on hot days!
The best tour you feel special you are touring the areas and it is not crowded since they let one group at a time go in so there is not too many people. Well we went early in the morning so maybe that was reason it was not so crowded as yet but it was perfect. You will not be disappointed.
Our 2 archaeologist tour guides Damien and Alesandro were fantastic. Fantastic to undertake a tour such as this with 2 expert guides and to see behind the scenes. Despite the heat, we were thrilled with seeing and hearing about these magnificent places another tick on our bucket list!!!
Excellent tour. Very interesting and informative. The Underground Chambers were fascinating. Would recommend to anyone.
This is a fantastic tour and provides a great insight of life as it was then
Amazing!!!! This was an unbelievable tour. Well worth the money. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
Great tour made even better by a wonderful tour guide Danielle. Well worth paying a bit more to do the full Colosseum tour.

My Husband and I took this tour in May and we had an incredible time! The views from the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill are breathtaking and we were there at a perfect time that it felt like we had the area to ourselves. This tour is well worth it for the Colosseum alone. Being able to go to the underground chamber and upper tier where no one else can go is great! The Colosseum can get very crowded so it was nice to be able to see these areas with only my small tour group. I highly recommend this tour, it is a must!
Absolutely fantastic tour Valentina was very knowledgeable and very easy to understand. Did a few tours when in Rome but this was by far my favourite. Viator give you headsets and the guide wears a microphone so you can easily hear her. Separate guide from colosseum there worth the skip line ticket
