The coliseum tour was fantastic. Really enjoyed the tour of Palatine hill. Wish we had more time in the Forum.
All guides were excellent, very organised, fantastic tour
Great tour with great access, and very good guides to explain things and answer questions. the afternoon dragged on a little after the Colosseum, but all around great tour
This was a really good tour we learned a lot about the history of Rome and the Colosseum, there was a lot of walking involved more than expected but definitely recommend this tour.
We took the morning tour to avoid the heat and increased crowds and it was great.
Knowledgeable guide who was easy to understand. She encouraged questions and shared many interesting facts. The insider access to the underground area was fantastic and worth the cost.
Unbelievable! Absolutely awe inspiring, highly recommend! Got into area only this tour does and was well worth it! Tour guide Valentina was lovely and very knowledgable and the length of tour was just enough to enjoy on a very hot day!
We actually had two tour guides for our Colessum tour, Fabrizio and Barbara. Both were amazing! The Colosseum is stand-alone amazing. Access to the underground chambers as well as the upper tier was well worth it and definitely is the only way to fully appreciate the structure and it's history. Fabrizio and Barbara were both knowledgeable and passionate about the topic as well as being considerate and mindful of the desires and comfort of the members of the tour on the very hot day. Do not miss this tour!
If you like the Colosseum, this is a great tour.
We had multiple tour guides for this one, they were both fantastic.
Our tour was a small group, and we were away from the masses.
Our guide was great, very knowledgeable. A lot of stairs but well worth it. Awesome site.
The private tour of the Colosseum was top rate! Would highly recommend this as the only way to get a first hand glimpse of the Colosseum in its entirety - the tiered seating, dungeons where the gladiators and animals awaited their doom. The other tours had long lines and were limited to only certain areas for viewing. The tour also included the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill - well worth every minute!
The tour guide was the best we had in our trip to Europe and showed us as much as possible while giving us heaps of worthwhile information.
Really excellent guide! Loved this tour. A good mix of local and history knowledge, didn't feel rushed. Visiting the underground section was very interesting and the archaeologist who conducted that part of the tour was very good at providing the right amount of details.
We were given time at the end of the tour we wrapped about 5:00PM to stay in Ancient Rome and explore it some more but most of us were done by then having been out in the hot sun on our feet for hours. Make sure and have an empty water bottle to fill for this part of the tour. You can't take full water bottles into the Colosseum any more but you can fill them once you are in from water fountains there. Also, toilet access is a bit challenging so be aware of that given the tour duration.
The tour gets a 5 star because of the venue, not because of our guide who was a bit 'dry' and not very enthusiastic. It was fantastic to have access to all the colosseum's levels. Definitely recommended to go as early as possible in summer, before the heat gets too much!

Everything was well organised and is a must to do in Rome. Our guide Gigi was immense. Not only was he very knowledgeable but he presented his subject with wit, passion and fun.
This was a great tour. Our guide Tiberius was incredibly knowledgeable and obviously passionate about Rome and it's history. Being able to go through some of the less trafficked areas was great and gave some good insight. Be prepared to climb lots of stairs, but but the views are well worth it.
Great experience! This was my husbands favorite part of our Italy honeymoon. Knowledgeable tour guide.
Both the Viator and Colloseum tour guides were very knowledgable and gave us little bits of information to help understand what we were seeing. This was a great tour and one I recommend to others
Great tour, from the bottom of the Colosseum to the top, also great tour guide.

Everything went smoothly with no difficulties! And the Guide was AWESOME!
Wonderful way to see ancient rome! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us through the best of the Colosseum and ancient Rome. The only negative was a 2 pm tour in August was very hot. The morning tour might be cooler.
Valentina was very sweet and shared much of her in depth knowledge of the Colosseum and Roman forum. We wished she had been able to give the tour inside the colosseum - the other tour guide was somewhat dry and difficult to hear. Valentina gave a terrific and insightful tour and we very much enjoyed
The meeting spot was easy to access and find. The tour started on time and was very in-depth. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand.
We were very impressed with the tour and recommend it and would do it again.
Fully enjoyed this tour. We had a great guide who made the time very enjoyable and informative for us. Since there wasn't much access to shade, we were a bit hot. Definitely bring a water bottle, maybe one with a misting function. It was great to skip the lines and see additional parts of the Colosseum that are off-limits to typical visitors.
