This was a fantastic tour with the Once in Rome tour group. We had a small group--8 people. Our guide did a great tour of the Colosseum with lots of interesting facts. We did not do the underground tour, but still got great views of the underground levels and lots of interesting information. We walked all over the ancient part of Rome and saw lots of beautiful and interesting sites. Our guide Eleana was great. After the tour she gave us a fantastic referral to a great restaurant for lunch. Very good experience.
Loved this tour! The group was small enough that I could keep up with a mobility scooter. They usually don't allow them, but it was doable for me. The guide was excellent and as an archeologist knew the places well. We enjoyed having the group and the info given as we went through the colosseum. My only problem was finding elevator and getting down to the street level exit before the rest of the group finished the tour of the underground portion. The second part of the tour was just as interesting and mostly going around town with info on the places we visited. This was very special to us even though we had visited much of it the night before. On our own we did not have any real information about the places. Going on a good tour made the places much more interesting and fun so it was like the first visit again - only better. Would strongly recommend this tour.
We had a GREAT tour! Paolo was our guide and he was FANTASTIC!!! He was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed our time with him. He even helped a couple of us find a gluten free restaurant. He went above and beyond!!!! Thank you for the great tour and especially thank you Paolo!!!
We really enjoyed our tour, our guide was extremely knowledgable and a pleasure to spend time with.
I've had such a great time! I only had a few hours to spend in Rome and this tour was the perfect way to visit some of the highlights of the Eternal City. Ferdinando, a former archaeologist, is an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide. The skip the line access to the Colosseum saves you a lot of time and hassle. I totally recommend this tour.
I enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide, Elena, was very interesting and excited to share. This is a very good value because you see many sites in one tour. It is quite a bit of walking, so be prepared for that and any changes of weather along the way!
Our stylish Hungarian guide, Ava, was very knowledgeable and approachable. She informed us of all the pertinent facts in an enthusiastic and humorous way and took great care of us when leading us across the busy streets of Rome.
My daughter and I were lucky to be the only ones on our tour - our guide, Helena, was very helpful and knowledgable. We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about ancient Rome. Thank you!
This was a great private tour. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the Colosseum, surrounding sites and general Roman history. We greatly appreciated Daniel positioning us in the shade whenever possible as it was a sweltering hot summer day.
Really great guide, was very accommodating to my parents' walking speed and levels of interest in each subject
Very good tour..about 7 of us Helena was our guide...very knowledgeable about the history of the city. Most of the time is spent in the Colusseum then on to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona...fair amount of walking so wear comfy shoes.
Eva from wonders if Rome tour co did a fantastic job of giving us some details behind the history of these very ancient sites,

Check in process not efficient and they made us pay extra for audio headset, Biggest problem is they did not purchase tickets for our kids ahead of time so we wasted time waiting for them to get out of that line and our kids missed the first 30 minutes of that tour. But fortunately, the rest of tour was interesting and covered a lot of information and sights so made up for the early problems. Bruno the tour guide was great!
The tour guide was nice enough but in retrospect we didn't really learn all that much, and didn't see any part of the Colosseum that we couldn't have seen on our own.
I wish I could have spent more time in the Colosseum, and less time walking around outside of the Colosseum. I didn't feel like we covered much of the history of the Colosseum.
I got their a few minutes late and they were gone. I tried going back the next day and they wouldnt honor my voucher. I will not recommend this company again. EVER! AND, when I went back, they werent the easiest to spot with all the other vendors blocking them.
