This tour was absolutely fantastic! Our lovely guide Alessandra was so knowledgeable in Roman history and was very patient - we learnt so much more being in a small tour group. The access to the underground area was amazing as was the very top level - fantastic views - well worth the extra money! Lots of ground to cover but well worth every step - so many ancient buildings to see on one site. Would highly recommend this trip.

This was an amazing experience I highly recommend to visitors of Rome. Our tour guide, Lucca, was fantastic!!! His passion, enthusiasm, and love for Rome was obvious, and set the tone for a wonderful 3 hours of touring the Colosseum and the Roman forums. This is not to be missed! In a small group of 6, we were taken to the lower and upper levels of the Colosseum for special views of the entire complex and great photo opportunities. He really created an image in our minds of what it must have been like thousands of years ago. He is very knowledgeable, warm, and, for us, was the perfect guide! There is a lot of walking, so bring comfortable shoes. I cannot recommend this tour enough!

We visited with Thomas who took us all over the Coliseum, the Paladine Hill and the Forum bringing it to life with interesting explanations - just the right level of detail. Seven booked this tour and they kept the promise of no more than six by sending two guides and splitting the group. It was awesome to stand on the reconstructed floor of the Coliseum and look up at the walls. Downstairs was well worth the extra fee.

Well this is a great tour. Being a small group of six it was easy to get around and get to places that other larger groups can't get into. My wife and I learnt so much from 'Parmel' our guide who was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend this tour for price and content Sometimes you pay a little more but get much more in return! Exceptional Tour!

We had an amazing time and our tour guide Luca, was very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience! I highly recommend this tour...as it permits you to see a couple areas that most tourists on a regular tour cannot see without the proper tour guide.

We cannot recommend this highly enough. Ancient Rome comes to life and you get a real understanding and insight into an extraordinary period of time and place. Even for us who have travelled to Rome on many occasions and studied Ancient History and Latin that includes our kids we learnt a lot from this tour. And above all else it was fun. I doubt we would have enjoyed it as much with a large Tour.
The highlight was our guide Lucca whose personality made the Tour great.
If you have not been to Rome this is the best Tour to start to understand Rome's past and its presence.

Our tour guide, Rachel, was fabulous! We learned so much about the inner workings of the Colosseum and appreciate the way we were taken to so many key positions for viewing and photo taking. Thank you for a marvelous tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Forum!

This tour was fantastic! Our guide was so knowledgeable - I felt like it was a history class as much as a tour in a good way!. I will say this was our last tour on the last day of our vacation and it was a lot of walking. I wasn't sure we were going to make it through Palatine Hill, but I'm so glad we persevered, as the big payoff was the Colosseum! The underground, as well as going to the very top were definitely worth the extra!

Perfect tour for anyone passionate about architecture and history. Our tour guide Rachel was excellent, having an Art History degree from a major university in the US. With a small group tour, we were able to ask a wide range of questions and and engage in a conversation with our knowledgeable guide. This tour is fascinating and well worth the money to have the small group.

Very interesting and enjoyable tour. The knowledge of a guide is imperative in a city like Rome. There is so much more than just the sights to see. Highly recommend.

Amazing tour from a very well organized company. The knowledge and communication was perfect throughout and I highly recommend the small group tours. The other tours provided by other guides are over croweded with a rubbish ear phone!. Thanks again to livitaly tours and our guide Alessandra

Fabulous tour! The best thing about it was that it was such a small group - only 6 people!
Our tour guide, Alessandra, was charming, knowledgeable and good company. She made sure we all had a good time and asked as many questions as we wanted to.
I think it is definitely the only way to see the Colosseum. You avoid the crowds and go to the underground areas and the very top tier which are not open to the general public. Our visits to the Palatine Hill and the Forum were shorter but excellent.
Would definitely recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed this tour. There were 5 in our party so we had our own guide that geared the tour toward our family and our three boys. We loved that you could go to the restricted areas of the Colosseum and guide was extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much on this tour ad it was great that we were able to see so much without waiting in lines.

Great tour! Pamen was very knowledgeable and answered our many questions, which really brought the visit to life! Despite the bad weather it rained during almost the entire tour, we definitely walked away with a deeper, more educational and enriching experience than we would have if we had just done it on our own or with just a guide book.

Incredible place to tour. The tour guide Rachel was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all the areas toured, was a great communicator and made me feel very at ease being a solo traveller. The tour itself was well paced, I did not feel rushed at any point and there were some amazing sites to see and learn about. The ability to tour the VIP areas was a fantastic bonus, worth the extra price of admission. I would highly recommend this tour and/or tour guide to anybody considering the tour.

This tour was fantastic! Luca, Luca, and Rachael led 3 small groups that totaled 17 people. Each was very knowledgeable and had a warm and friendly personality. We clearly had privileged access to the Colosseum. When we were on the Colosseum floor, the underground where the animals and prisoners were kept, and on the upper level, there were 17 people plus 3 guides and the Colosseum official who opened locked gates for us--no other tourists permitted. We were never in the huge crush of tourists that visit the Colosseum daily. Our guide, Luca gave us each Roman names, based on our given names and places of birth, and a role in the history of the Colosseum, which made us active participants as the history unfolded. We learned a great deal about the history in a very intimate and personal small group setting. This tour is pricey but worth very penny.

This tour, which we took in May 2016, encompassed some of the must-see sights in Rome! If possible I would highly recommend a small group tour such as this one. Our Italian tour guide was terrific, so knowledgeable and informative! And especially during the busy tourist season, it really pays to book a tour in advance and skip the line.

Our tour guide Rachel was wonderful!!! She was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the history of Rome and the Colosseum. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are visiting the Colosseum for your second or third time. Great experience!!!

Enjoyed the tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. We did learn that water is not allowed into the Colosseum, however, empty water bottles are okay and there are places to fill them up, after you pass security. Luca was a wonderful guide who knew the history, can work the camera wonderfully and manage this small group 6 people very well. It is worth knowing that you will be walking a bit. We had an elderly couple who had to sit and wait in part of the Roman forum as the rest climbed the hill for a wonderful view of the Forum and Rome. I recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the Colosseum and knowing what was it like and how they did it.
