Our guide was very knowledgeable, recreated the times for us! I would recommend this tour to anyone.
The Colosseum was by far the highlight of my trip. The underground and Upper Tier were brilliant and defiantly worth a visit. would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in the Colosseum and its history.
It must and one of the highlight of our Italy tour. Its a five star company with all the guides and facilities in five star standards. We got special access to underground chambers and is as said in the tour description. Both our guides were very knowledgeable and very informative and provide detailed description on sites visited.
If you want to go to the Colosseum and Forum, do yourself a favour and pay the extra money to do this. The guides were brilliant, and the opportunity to see so much of the Colosseum was special. Very worthwhile! Pack yourself a snack as you finish inside the Forum so can stay longer.
Getting to go to underground and skipping the lines was well worth the money. If you are going to come all this way a tour guide really helps you not miss anything important.
The Colosseum was amazing to see in real life. But the magic of this tour was our guide Vasco. He was a champion and had so much information, so many stories and interacted with all the members of our small group so well. It was great to see the arena stage, the lower areas and the higher tiers of the Colosseum and this tour connected well to the Roman Forum next door.
I'm still amazed thinking of all the stories Vasco told us and I'm sure he had hundreds more !
I'd thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to really learn about the Colosseum and Roman Forum rather then just looking at the ruins.
Mariella is great...like having your own personal Historian and Archaeologist! Very informative and knowledgeable and truly enjoys sharing the experience.
This tour was absolutely fantastic! Extremely knowledgeable guides, they were pleasant and made the whole tour incredibly interesting. The audio equipment used was great it meant we weren and #39;t all crowded round struggling to hear. There was a fair bit of walking tho so perhaps not for the less mobile
Fabrizio was an AMAZING tour guide. He explained everything extremely thoroughly and had great stories. I highly recommend this tour, it's worth the little extra money to see the upper tier and the underground chambers. It was such an incredible experience. The upper tier you can see over the Roman Forum perfectly.
We had an excellent tour of the Colosseum. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgable and informative. She guided us through the full Collesseum. I would highly recommend this tour.
So pleased that I chose to purchase tickets for this tour. Our guide Mariella, a former archaelogist, was wonderful, very knowledgeable and experienced. Being able to enter straight away instead of queuing for hours was definitely a bonus. The tour around the forum and Palatine hill felt a little rushed, but once it finished we were allowed to wander around at our leisure, there was so much to see. The highlight was undoubtedly the spectacular Colosseum, seeing the underground chambers was incredible. And the very steep and high steps to the upper tier were exhausting but the view was certainly worth it. Probably the best vantage point to take in the arch, forum and Palatine hill was made even more perfect when my boyfriend dropped to one knee 3 3 Definitely a perfect day.
Amazing tour and amazing hostess. With thousands of people there, felt very special with our guide and got to view locations in Colosseum that others were not able to go. Definitely worth the price to see underground and get that history. Wear comfortable shoes and be ready for lots of steps!
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was from Washington DC and has lived in Italy for 13 years. I wish I could remember his name because he was awesome. He was funny, extremely informative and made us want to be history buffs and do more research when we returned to our hotel. The Coliseum is spectacular and this also included a tour of the Roman Forum.
WoohooWorld! United States of ...
Amazing Tour. If you have to choose one choose this one. Tour Guides were fun and informative.
This was an outstanding tour! The underground chambers have only been opened to the public for the past three years, so to walk in the chambers that the gladiators walked sent chills down my spine! It was amazing to see the process they used in order to make animals magically appear on the Colosseum floor. It was awesome to have the various views of the arena as well. The upper tier views of the city were remarkable! Then we walked the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. Maura, our tour guide, would show us pictures of what the city looked like thousands of years ago which helped me visualize things. I loved that you could view Julius Caesar's tomb and walk on the stones that the senators and politicians did back in the day. The view from Palatine Hill overlooking Circus Maximus was also remarkable. I can't recommend this tour high enough...I'd give it 6 stars if I could!
If you're travelling to Rome, of course the Colosseum is a must see, so why not do the full experience! All the standard entry people were kicking themselves watching us go behind the rope! Entry to parts I didn't know existed, knowledgeable guides, and absolutely worth the price tag!
Great experience. Tour allows you to go underground at the Colosseum and see things most will not. You need a guide to truly experience and understand all there is to know about the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill.
Brilliant give access to parts of the Colosseum not normaly open to the general public. Allows you to view the building in a small quiet group. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, amazing to step on the grounds where so many were entertained and some lost their lives. So much history here. We bought the pass the lines, early entry and went down below where the animals and slaves were kept. It is ruins but if you use your imagination you will appreciate the history. wonderful time in Roma

Oh boy! This was fantastic. before we headed into the Colosseum we did an extensive walking tour of the Roman Forum. Our guide was brilliant. Talked us through all the inmportant locations and really brought the forum to life and helped us visualise what a day would look and feel like. Stepping inside the Colosseum was an experieince I'll never forget. Going below the arena floor to where the animals and slaves were held was fantastic. A must do in Rome
Rosie was an incredibly informative guide, and because it was Christmas week the museums were very crowded. No matter where we were able to make our stop to talk as a group, in any random spot, Rosie had vital information to share about any piece of art.
The tour guide was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and interesting.
Well worth the money
We had an amazing tour!! Our guide talked us through the history of the area and shared with us her love for Rome what what made it the city it is today. The underground tour at the Colosseum was handed off to an archeologist who was equally as amazing, her love for the history that was at our very feet and hands reach was palatable. She painted verbal pictures of what took place in the underground chamber and who had access to each level of the colosseum.
I would highly recommend both Viator and this excursion. Simply amazing and worth the price!
