Great experience. Been there before on the standard above ground tour, but getting to see the underground chanbers, mechanical screw elevators, and water/drainage system was interesting.
Excellent guide. Maria Louisa spoke clear and not too fast. She was great. The audio equipment was very good also. Enjoyed it.
Alba was a fantastic tour guide with a wealth of information and a pleasing personality. Take her tour.
Excellent. I have been to the Colosseum before but never did the underground before. Amazing and fascinating. I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour was an excellent experience and the tour guide was also excellent. The only disappointment was having to leave the tour site early in order to get to the pick-up destination for our evening tour, which was a total disaster. see my comments about that tour Rome by Night Tour Including Dinner
The guide was outstanding ! She had her masters degree in archeology and she knew an amazing amount about the Colosseum and nearby ruins e.g., the Forum.
She lived in the US for 9 years, so her English was excellent.
The tour could not have been better.
Amazing tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and made it sooo interesting! It was great seeing the underground and also having access to the top of the arena to enjoy the view with the crowds. A must for any visit to rome
This tour was very exciting, informative, and personal. We had an AMAZING time with our guide and truly learned a lot from our experience. I would recommend this tour and this guide to anyone who plans to travel to this area of Europe. The tour was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!
Absolutely fantastic tour, you get to go behind, up, down the scene where the average person cannot do. Our guide Chiara was just amazing, her knowledge of the Colosseum and the history as well as her personality made this tour for our group. If yr coming to the Colosseum do this tour, for 3 hours..
Our guide was excellent and despite the rain it was a fabulous tour.
Great tour, perfect timing! Enjoyed our guide and the it was definitely worth booking the underground chambers.
This tour was the highlight of Rome. It was amazing to see such history and try and imagine what it was like so many years ago. Seeing the underground chambers where the gladiators stayed and the animals kept. We took a day tour but I think I night tour would be even more spectacular.
I was so glad we took the Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier Tour. We got to see such interesting parts of the Colosseum. Our guides were great!
Another one of the amazing tours from City Wonders I went on.
Extremely well organized, great guides in both the Colosseum and the Forum/Palatine Hill. It was great to see the underground chambers and get a lot of info that's not provided on most tours. I would suggest highly to book this tour over the others.
I think Viator provides great guides! Thanks for that! We enjoyed this trip very much!
Incredible tour of the Colosseum, especially the underground chambers. We where able to see this magnificent structure from all the different levels. It gives one a different perspective and insight into the life and times of the ancient Romans. You really got a great insight from the tour guide who presented this tour, because of his knowledge of the Coloseum. I highly recommend this tour since it takes you through the whole ancient structure, from top to bottom.
Mariella was fantastic! We so enjoyed this tour, it was the best we had the whole vacation. Well worth the money spent.
With the skip the line tour we went in through a priority entrance and security taking no longer than 10 minutes and avoiding the long queues. Very informative tour by Paulina and the Colosseum guide. Was great to go from bottom to top, seeing the underground chambers to the top tier. Also a bonus to walk on the arena floor, it gave you a real sense of how the Gladiators would have felt! We then moved onto the Roman Forum and Paletine Hill. This part was also informative but was a bit longer than necessary, with many of the sites able to be viewed from the Hill area rather than both viewing areas. A very well organised tour, with all participants catered for.
Pauolo was a fantastic tour guide. This all day tour which took place on a very hot day but was made very interesting because Pauolo was very engaging. He was a lot of fun and interesting to listen to him. He gave us insight on how the Roman's lived and pointed out important historical facts. Our group got to know each other and after the beautiful sites of the colosseum we got together and had a nice dinner with him and the group.
Emmanuella was a great tour guide. Her passion and knowledge made the tour so much more interesting and informative. The way she described the architecture and history we were able to visualise what is would have been like, in the days when Romans experienced the events at the Flavian Amphitheatre . We got caught in a brief rain storm but Emmanuella was very professional and accommodating to make sure we were comfortably out of the rain. An enjoyable and memorable tour.
It was an excellent tour and the tour guide was excellent.
Enjoyed the underground chambers
