We went at night the day before our tour as it was highly recommended. It was beautiful at night.
The next a.m. we went back and it was great to have a tour guide explain the history.
By the end of the tour, we were exhausted. But the tour itself was incredible. Definitely suggest this tour!
Be sure to eat some breakfast before your tour if you are signing up for a AM tour.
Also, you can take a water bottle - you'll have to dump it before entering but there are water fountains that which you can use to refill your bottle.
AMAZING! Super awesome to go to other areas with less people and amazing views, incredibly informative. 100 must do!
A friend and I went on this and had Gigi as a guide. He was awesome, very dramatic very I enjoyed. If this is your first time at the Colosseum you NEED a tour guide and I would highly recommend Viator. The guides were knowledgeable and gave you enough time at each spot. You also need to go to the underground and top floor. This tour was worth every penny!!! Gigi I'm sure I spelled his name wrong was also awesome!!
This was a great tour. We got to go into locked areas of the Colosseum. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a history lesson on Rome. Loved it!
Absolutely amazing! Seeing it on TV or in books doesn't even come close to the up close and personal in live person!
Our tour guide was great and very informative.
Amazing tour with the most knowledgeable guides. This tour cost a bit more but it was well worth it. We were able to see the underground tunnels and the top floor of the Colosseum. Amazing views from the top. The guides are excited to share what they know and work hard. This teacher gives it an A
What a superb tour! Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Francesca our guide was excellent and full of knowledge. She obviously had an accent which we soon got use to her and her passion for giving us a great day were obvious to see. But probably our favourite part of the trip was going to the Underground Chambers and this is where an archeologist joins the party - you really could picture what is was like all those years ago. The tour is expensive but worth every penny if you ask me. I was trying to imagine what visiting the Colosseum would be like without the tour guides and I reckon it would take you half an hour.... we must have been in the venue for nearly three and it flew by!
Amazing trip. Our tour guide, Francesca as i remember was excellent, knowledgeable and very honest
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Both tour guides inside and outside the Colosseum were excellent. They were able to provide the perfect amount of information so as not to overload the tourist brain. Be aware that there's quite a few stairs to negotiate, but the guides take it slowly so most people should be okay.

I did another Colosseum Tour in April and was so tired after and Roman Forum and Palatine Hill I did not get to do the Colosseum tour. This time I did the Smaller Group tour and it was more focused to the Colosseum and the levels and history. Great tour.

Excellent Tour. Saw virtually everything in the Colosseum top to bottom and the Roman Forum. Tour of the Colosseum was strenuous! Much work has been done to reclaim the Colosseum.
Very knowledgeable guide. Very well planned tour, the group was just the right size and in under 2 hours you get to see one of the world's most awe inspiring places
Brilliant... This tour with our very experienced guide was terrific. It was great to be able to access the underground and also to have access to the Upper Level to get amazing views from the top. Highly recommended.
An amazing tour. Still had to queue for a little while to get into the Colossem but were soon whisked off through security to another entrance. Our tour guide was very informative and told us all about the history of the Colosseum. We were able to stand on the arena floor with no crowds and visit the underground chambers which was fantastic. My favourite part of the tour was the visit to the Forum and Palatine Hill. So interesting and so much to see. Would highly recommend.
The underground chambers are very interesting. Tour guide was easy to understand and knows her stuff. Easily recommend to all.
Fantastic tour, our guide was more knowledgeable than the guide The Colosseum provided. We also saw the what remains of the Roman Forum and walked up Palatine Hill. The view was amazing. Our guide studied archaeology and gave us a wonderful insight to Roman life and times.
Brilliant experience and taking the private tour added so much value and knowledge to our tour. A must to experience the below 'stage' chambers and upper tiers of the Colosseum.
If you are wanting a thorough and highly informative tour with passionate tour guides then this tour highly recommended. It is lengthy so prepare for that but we loved it.
Great tour. Guides were knowledgeable and very interesting. This is a long, very active tour with lots of walking and steps. Really enjoyed the tour.
This tour is a must if you are visiting the Colosseum. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made this tour very interesting.
Our guide Alessi was an expert in all things Colosseum. She was very easy to understand via the earphones and gave good direction. Alessi guided us through the 'standard' tour of the monument and Palantine Hill, etc while a Colosseum employed archaeologist provided the tours of the underground, arena and upper tier. His passion for his work his evident by his enthusiasm. Needless to he was an expert, without question. This tour lived up to its description and was worth every penny. To stand on the stage of Colosseum is priceless!
