5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This tour is excellent - Fabio was an amazing guide and we couldn't be happier with our experience. He was very knowledgeable, funny, and you could tell this was a huge passion of his. Having VIP access to the lower and upper floors are well worth the additional money. Would do it again and recommend it to anyone!

The tour guide was fantastic - really enthusiastic with a great knowledge of both the forum and the colosseum. Felt everyone else in the colosseum being very jealous of our group as we toured the exclusive areas of the site - such a great and unique experience of an amazing place.

Fantastic tour !! Well organized and we had a fantastic tour guide. Well worth paying extra for the underground and upper arena, we stood on the arena floor with only 12 other people and had the opportunity to take photos at the upper level without having to struggle with hundreds of other tourists. Highly recommended
