Another great experience. Viator booked us with LivItaly tours and our guide David was fantastic.
Our tour of the Colosseum took us to spots away from the crowds and we had time for photos. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to really impart the feelings of the gladiators and spectators. Continuing on to the Palatine Hills our guide used his virtual reality I pad to show how the are looked when first constructed. What a great way to see sights and learn about Ancient Rome.
This tour was incredible my little boy lived it all 3hours of it. Tatiana was amazing we could not have asked for a better guide with children. Would definitely recommend.
I just wanted to say that Rachel was amazing and exceeded all expectations. I honestly can say that she only enhanced my experience at the Colosseum and I am grateful we had her. Her knowledge, energy and passion is everything that you want from a guide. And the fact she was english speaking, made it easier. I have had a few tours throughout Italy and whilst the guide speak english, you can't understand them, so with Rachel being american - added bonus.
One of the other huge benefits it that it's small group and access to the VIP. I booked all my tours in Australia prior to coming over so couldn't remember what I had actually booked, so it was great that it was only 6 people. This tour is just amazing.
I've done this same tour with Viator in the large group and small group format with different family members along visiting with me. No question: it's worth it to pay extra for the small group tour experience! The website said it our group would be no more than eight, but it ended up being just six of us. The previous summer I had done the same Viator Colosseum/Forum tour but in a large group of 20-25. The extra cost was totally worth it. And our guide was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable, interesting, and patient. Great at taking questions and giving us what felt like an unhurried and in-depth understanding of what we were seeing.
Francesca was an incredible guide. My mom and I went on the tour and loved it. We were able to see the underground part and get the history behind everything and we traveled to the upper levels as well. She gave us time at each spot to stop and take pictures and ask questions. It was the best part of our Rome trip. Plus the small group size was perfect!
Phenomenal experience. Our tour guide Francesca P. was wonderful and made the entire trip worth while! This tour is a MUST DO while in Rome.
Fantastic tour of the Colosseum and Forum! There were just 2 couples in this group and small group tours are the only way to see the sites in Rome.

Out of our 9 day trip to Rome, with 7 tours booked, this one was our absolute favorite! I would give it 6 stars if I could. Our guide, Francesca P, was outstanding - a fountain of knowledge. There were only 6 people in our group, and the tour took us to areas not open to general admission, so we never had difficulty hearing our guide. The Colosseum underground and Roman Forum are truly a must-see but be aware that there is lots of walking for this tour. And take your camera, as there are lots of great photo ops!
We had a tour guide called Luca and he was amazing explained everything in the best possible way and made the whole tour really fun best part of our trip to rome. He made up story's about what could have happened to us in the days of the Roman empire.
This was a mother daughter trip and I was excited for them to see the Colosseum for the first time so I wanted to do something very special...this was it. A small group, only six of us, was escorted through places not open to the general public. At times it was just the seven of us experiencing the wonders of this place. I would highly recommend this trip. I have been to the Colosseum before on my own and this is just so much more memorable.
We could not have had a more knowledgeable guide than Helena! My husband and I felt that we were getting an insiders view from an expert in the field. Thank you Helena and livitaly tours!!
Fantastic. Our guide was exellent. Small grouo of 8. Time to take it all in. Very impressed with the whole complex.
Excellent tour. Thomas, our guide, was very knowledgeable and available to address all questions. Small group meant 5 people in our group! Using this booking helped us navigate a very crowded attraction.
We did the Colosseum Tour with David Falaska on New Years Eve. It included the underground areas and also the Palentine Hill and the Forum. To say that he did a fabulous job would not come near enough to describe his level of knowledge not only of the sights we were visiting but the history of the city itself and also some very interesting insights into the use of common words used today . . . Salary as an example. He kept our small group of 6 close by and we were able to hear him at all times. He had a great sense of humour as well. Hats off to David we would highly recommend to anyone to not only book this tour but to ask for David. Thank you, Maureen and Barry
Great experience, learned lots, our guide was very nice and very funny. She was very helpful, knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter.
The tour itself was great, but our guide Paolo made it unforgettable. He clearly loves what he does and has a superb ability to take you back in time to really experience what the various sites were like so long ago. I would recommend the tour and especially Paolo to anyone!
This was a fantastic tour. Great information about the Colosseum and the city of Rome. We really enjoyed it!!
Great tour! Paolo, our guide, was fantastic! I had been to these sites before but he really made the history of them come to life. He took a lot of time to answer our questions and was very passionate about the subject matter.
Nadia, our tour guide, provided us with a logical and detailed history of the Colosseum and a few of the emperors integral to its success. The Palatine Hill and Forum were less of a focus on this tour but we were still able to touch upon the highlights. It's always best to see any structure with a small group so I highly recommend this tour.
Took two Colosseum tours - one topside and one underground. This second tour was well worth it. Did you know there is a river down there? Also a model of how they got wild animals to the arena floor, among other things. Fascinating!
Frederica was an excellent guide. Highly knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Great trip!
This tour was the highlight of my trip! Our tour guide was fun, extremely knowledgeable, and made the experience very interesting. I learned a lot on this trip, the time spent was perfect, and the sites were incredible. I got a huge kick out of being able to access the upper-tier and underground chamber as it was a very exclusive part of the tour. Because it was a small group, we got a lot of personalized attention from our guide and she was very accommodating to our group.
