Absolutely amazing tour for all parts. Very in depth tour of history and all. Would highly recommend for American travelers!
Great tours. Our tour of Vatican was great. and yes, skip the line worked and so so great. Crowds can be burdensome, but on this tour we got right in. Our guide spoke very good English and she was very knowledgeable..
Fabrizio was our Colosseum guide and he did a great job as well. We weren't scheduled to go to the arena floor, but he got us in there.. WOW so fantastic. He was very knowledgeable as well, and we so enjoyed our tours..
IF you are visiting Rome, and want to tour these places, book with these folks. They did a great job. Yes, it was a very full day 9-5 but if your time is limited, and you need to cover many places in 1 day, this tour is so worth your time and money..
Glad we did both tours. Both tours of the Vatican, Sistin Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica with the Colosseum in the same day will require a very substantial amount of walking -- and it started 8:45 am and ending at 6 pm, with only a quick lunch in between. Maybe if we had more days in Rome, we would do the tours separately. But the tours themselves were pretty great!! I wished our first tour guide had a lightly accent, so I can understand her better. However, both of our guides were still very good and very informative.
This tour was excellent but is a very long day. Walked 11 plus miles and about 30 flights of steps. Morning tour guide of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica was excellent. Natalia was very knowledgeable, interesting and kept everyone's attention. We were not provided with a time for the afternoon Colosseum tour so arrived at meeting place early to make sure we didn't miss it. We were signed up for the 3:00 pm start time but luckily were able to get it moved up to the 2:00 pm time. The afternoon guide was knowledgeable but a little drier in his delivery. The Colosseum tour also includes the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, so be advised that the whole day does involve a lot of walking!
This tour was amazing and the tour guides were both very knowledgeable and pleasant. This was a wonderful way to see all of these sights with a small group and skipping any long lines.
It was an amazing tour if you don't mind doing alot of walking. My daughter thought it was the best part of our trip.
Glad we got skip the line tickets to the Vatican. The regular line would have taken couple of hours. Even with skip the line it took us 15 mins. We got out there probably 5 mins past our reporting time. There are nearly 10 to 12 guides waiting to escort people in. We were asked to stand in a common line where they verified your tickets and then were told which guide to go to. You are given a headset to wear to hear what the guide has to say. It is important to get it for everyone in your trip. The guide gives you instruction on where to wait and how long using that. You can use strollers in most of the museum. However you have to check it in for the other parts. We did feel a little rushed in the Vatican. However, that's how you can cover a lot in a short time. Colosseum tour was very good. We seemed to have enough time there.
excellent trip! so glad we did this tour with both the Vatican and the coliseum. the tour guides are great and speak good English. i would strongly recommend this tour. the only negative is it is a long long day.

We had limited time in Rome so needed to hit it all in one day. Our guides Rosa (Vatican) and GG (Colosseum) were incredibly informed about the sites and animated (GG is actually an archeologist). This is a long day - don and #39;t recommend for children. Some stairs, not too many if you and #39;re reasonably fit.

We would highly recommend this combo tour for people with lots of energy and limited time in Rome. We toured the Vatican museums, Sistine chapel and St Peter's Basilica in the morning for 3 hours and the Colosseum, Roman forum and Palatine hill in the afternoon for 3 hours. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, engaging and passionate about their subject matter. Sarah N, a PhD Roman archeologist, gave us more than our money's worth on the Colosseum tour.
What a fantastic tour, all the city highlights in one day. Expect lots of walking! I'd like to make a special mention to our tour guide Alessi who was just wonderful and informative. Thank you.
The Vatican tour was very good and interesting. Our guide was very upbeat considering it was very crowded. My only advice is not to do the Vatican and Colosseum in the same day it is beyond taxing. Both are great tours just do them on different days.
Great tours, though be aware they don't actually help you get to the second half! If you are an English speaker, Chiara was fantastic in the ancient ruins!
This is a big day. The crowds even in early June are exhausting. I suggest not something to try with young Children. Both our tour guides were terrific with a special thanks to Igor on the Colosseum tour. He has an amazing amount of knowledge and his stories makes the Colosseum and Forum come alive. He is also very giving with anything you want to know about Rome.
Unfortunately the sound quality on the receivers around the Vatican weren't terrific but not helped by the overall noise when inside.
I would highly recommend this trip especially if you are short of time and want to cover it all in a day
Our tour guide for the Colloseum tour Laura, was amazing. Kept us all going even in the heat and kept our interest throughout. Could tell she was really passionate and knowledgeable about the areas she took us and it was a great tour.
This tour was amazing! Our guide for the vatican was great, Elizabeth, I think. Very informative and thorough. Unfortunately we got the extended tour of the museums since the Basilica was closed till 1. Sistine chapel is breathtaking. Coliseum tour was great! Francesca is the best! So much history.
THe tour was amazing...if you cant walk and stand for 3 hours this is not a tour for you...the guide spoke great English and was very informative and helpful...I especially liked having the headsets.
Thank you viator tours:)
