The world famous Maura was my guide. I must be favored in God's eyes. A thoroughly refreshing, happy, lady with a great style and presence. Wonderful history and art presentation. Underground is a creepy effect, must have been a nightmare for gladiators suddenly thrust into the daylight and combat for your life. Recommend this tour highly. Upper tier is a whole new perspective on this ancient wonder.
We loved our Colosseum tour. Our guide, Rosana, was a wealth of information. She knew so many interesting details about the Colosseum and Rome in general. I highly recommend this tour!
Great access to the Colosseum. Prepare to spend more time after the tour with Palantine Hill and the Forum. The tour only covers a portion of Palantine Hill and the Forum. Not the fault of the tour, just that both have so much to see. My tour ran from 11:30 to 2:30. But I stayed on Palantine Hill and the Forum until they kicked me out around 6:15.
A hugely informative tour with a great guide who is an architect/archeologist and clearly loves and has such a passion for the Roman ruins. We did wait for a short time in line to get into the Colosseum, but that was a factor of the security. This tour took the group down to the lower level and it was great to see and hear all that the Colosseum has to offer. The lower part is not open to the general public, so not only do you see a portion that most cannot see, it was not crowded either. Plan on standing the entirety of the tour 3 hours, wear comfortable shoes - ones that are okay for uneven flooring and stairs. The Roman Forum portion was great also with tons of information that one could only get with a lot of research. Highly recommended.
Our guide was Tobis, he was very passionate about Rome. His knowledge of Ancient Rome and the History had you feeling how it was like to live in Ancient Rome. Any one who does this tour and has Tobis as a guide will be sure to enjoy.
Georgia was the best guide we went below ground and the to the tip top, She knew everything
Great tour and very educational. The length of the tour was just right. One of the best we had in Rome.
This was a great tour. To be able to see the underground chambers and have the guide explain what went on was eye opening and amazing. And the views are breathtaking from the upper tier. don't miss this tour!!
Great experience with an excellent and knowledgeable guide who really added a lot of information to the colosseum, forum and palantine. Access to the restricted areas also means you can avoid a lot of the crowds inside the colosseum.
brilliant , our guide was very knowledgeable and took time to answer questions. would highly recommend booking the small group tours
BRILLIANT. EVEN THOUGH BECAUSE OF THE WEATHER HEAVY RAIN AND THUNDER WE WERE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THE UNDERGROUND CHAMBERS.
OUR GUIDE WAS EXCELLENT, A HISTORIAN.
This tour was amazing! We went for the morning tour, which was good as we missed the midday sun. Take a jacket with you, as the underground is cold in the early morning. The guides were well versed on history and were very friendly. We're glad we went for the tour with the underground and upper tier, as we were granted access to areas you wouldn't normally see, and get fantastic views. We avoided massive queues - which is always a bonus. Would highly recommend!
Excellent and well worth it. A word to the wise, go on this tour early. We opted for the first time slot available 8:30am and it is the only way to see it. The later in the day the more crowded this location becomes.

Excellent and informative. Was great to see all tiers of the Colosseum in small group! Highly recommend to do this.
what can we say...the high point of our trip!!! ...well worth the extra money to view the underground chambers with our brilliant and very informed guide who told us tales of life in the underbelly of the Colosseum... The view from the top was spectacular and well worth the VERY steep and plentiful steps to get there!... A trip to Rome is not complete without this and the sheer size of it really blows you away when you see it....
Make sure you book the tour that includes the underground tour of the Colosseum! This is well worth it! Our guides were very knowledgeable, they tag teamed different parts of the tour. Both were excellent. We learned so much about the colosseum and the history of Palatine Hill. Be prepared for a lot of walking and stairs and our guides made sure to alert people ahead of time. It was appreciated that they let people know ahead of time how long until the next bathroom break and where the available bathrooms were located because sometimes they are few and far between! Excellent.

Excellent tour of the Colosseium and Palatine Hills. Don't miss this!
We had such an enjoyable tour with our guide Susanna. She was so knowledgeable and entertaining! Highly recommend this tour.
This is a tour not to be missed! The group was small, 10 or 12, the guide was very knowledgeable and the access to locked areas of the Colosseum was fascinating!
Maryella was a fantastic guide ... I got more than my moneys worht
Great walking tour. Over 3 hours and most enjoyable. Tour guide Rosa, an archeologist, was excellent and very knowledgable. The best way to see the Colosseum along with the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

This tour was amazing from beginning to end.
Viewing mostly off limits areas of the Colosseum seemed like a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our tour guide as well as the tour guide from the Colosseum were very knowledgeable throughout the tour.
After our Colosseum tour, our Viator guide took us throughout the entire Forum area and made us truly appreciate the rich history.
AMAZING, If you are interested in the in depth explanation of the history this tour is for you. Totally worth it.
