We took a taxi to the meeting location because we never would have found it on our own. Once there, eight of us we were given headsets and a tour guide. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Roman history and the ancient sites we visited. It was an absolute must to have a "skip-the-line" excursions as there were hundreds of people in line to visit the Colosseum. Once in, we were able to view this remarkable ancient ruin and marvel at the complexity of a facility so old. We then viewed other ancient ruins in the area and finished on Palatine Hill with a great over view of Rome.

Very informative and Comba, our guide, was the best! We covered a lot of ground and information in a short period of time. I recommend highly!

Renata was very personable and provided a lot of information. However the earphone and microphone system was terrible. The area is crowded and noisy of course. However, the system they use cannot be heard over the background noise. Also the guides English was unclear. She also lost some of her group and seemed unconcerned when THEY found her.

It was our forst time in Italy and in Rome. Being on a cruise ship, we didn't have much time, and decided to focus on one thing - the Colosseum (since Vatican museums etc were closed on Sunday). The tour was amazing. A little slow to get started - possibly the formalities could have been done more quickly or even ahead of time. The tour guide was an art historian and knew a lot about the history and details, plus she had a very engaging style. THe teenagers enjoyed it, so I think that say it all right there! Highly recommended.

We stood in the line for two hours. As a result second part of the trip ( Foro Romano) was not done.

Our guide Sylvia deserves a medal! The day was cold and drizzling but Sylvia’s love of her city kept us too interested to worry! She loved all our questions, has a great sense of humour, and we really knew we were walking through time. The Colosseum is amazing, the Forum is mind blowing, especially learning how deep down the excavations are.

We booked this tour which was advertised as being from 11am to 2 pm. The tour actually started at 11:30am. From 11:30-12:45 we toured the Forum, which was very interesting. Then we got to the Coliseum. Then we got to the Coliseum at around 1pm and waited a full hour to get in. We left the tour at 2:30pm, but it was still going on. The guide had a strong accent, but was otherwise interesting, but frankly I could not enjoy the Coliseum after an hour waiting, standing in the cold. It is true the agency mentioned that there would be a short wait for security, but certainly did not tell us the wait could be an hour and that the tour might end at 3pm instead of 2pm (making lunch extremely late).

We are so glad we booked a tour here. Anna Maria was amazing in her knowledge, humor, pace and spirit. We learned so much and it was such an enjoyable tour. The history is incredible and Anna Maria is a great guide. So happy we had her for the tour. Thank you so much

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Colosseum. Dennis was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Finding the starting point for the tour was a bit glad we checked it out the day before, or we surely would have missed the tour.

We used Viator to see the Colleseum on Tuesday 30th October 2018. Departing on an early morning walking tour. Our guide Georgio was fantastic and he went at a pace which suited the whole party (around 12 from memory).I'm so glad I went with an organised tour as you really miss so much if you do it alone. We loved the history and the and politics which Georgio managed to deliver in an understandable way even indicating ways that history could have been changed depending on the teller at the time. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. From finding the starting point to the length of the tour, value for money was spot on and information was clear and understandable. Thank you!
