Definitely the way to see the Colosseum and Forum! The crowds were daunting but we did not have to stand in line and just met the guide at a designated spot. Be sure to allow plenty of time to get to the Colessum and find your tour. Our guide was wonderful--calm, patient, very knowledgeable and the tour was small enough that we could all stay with her. We did this tour on our first day day in Rome, and after this great introduction to the whole area, we went back to the sites around the Colesseum on our own a couple of times during the following days.
This was a great tour with a very engaged and informed guide. The tour took about 3 and a half hours and did require a good amount of stairs. Skip the line was absolutely needed at these stops. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the collusieum and forum!
Strongly recommended to go with the Upgrade options with guided underground and arena visit. Details and interactive info/history by our guide. Breath-taking view inside underground of Colosseum.
Fantastic tour. You learnt everything and more. Well worth the que jumping.
Our tour guide, Emanuella, was really knowledgeable and also really fun. We enjoyed especially the views of the Roman forum and surroundings from the Palatine hill. Colosseum is also amazing. The tour is a must when visiting Rome.
Rosie was an amazing guide, full of information and with the loveliest nature.
I would not hesitate to recommend this tour, it just left us all wanting to see and learn more about Ancient Rome.
Well worth it to skip the lines at the Colosseum and to go to all levels and to understand the structure of the Forum and the hills beyond.
I thought it might be too tiring for my 10 year old son but it wasn't, he loved it.
Our best day in Rome.
Amazing!!! Skip the line is the only way to go. Guide was very knowledgeable.
Great tour guide and a great way to learn about all the history and architecture of the Colosseum. Without a tour guide, you won't really understand or appreciate all the history. Also, our tour guide had some visuals for us to help understand how the ruins originally looked when built. Definitely a great way to learn and experience the life and culture. This is an audio tour with an active tour guide, which is perfect. You won't have to worry about trying to hear the tour guide if they're walking further ahead of you. Highly recommend it.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgable and somehow kept 20 people actively interested for three hours. Wonderful information, beautiful views of the inside of the coliseum. Best way to see ancient Rome.
great tour. It was essentially a private tour with only one other guest. Avoided long lines even though it was off season. Guide was very well prepared and knowledgable.
Great and informative tour. Spent the beginning half in the Colosseum learning all about the structure, the events and the people from way back when. We then went and saw the other Roman structures nearby. The guide was great in giving us great details of everyday life and the different time-frames and how the area changed over time. Loved it.
I had a fabulous time on this tour and felt very welcomed by our guide. She was very informative and we had so much to see in so little time! I would highly recommend this tour with the added bonus of no lines to wait in!!!
Maura was an excellent guide for the Colosseum tour! We learned a lot from her and she made it fun and interesting. Be prepared to walk and wear comfortable shoes as it and #39;s a good 3 hours long. Also bring an empty water bottle as we wish we would have known as there are places to fill up.
Wonderful experience and tour. We saw the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Timing was good - we got to see everything and weren't rushed. The guide was excellent, providing good historical background to the structure and the times when it was used. She helped us to see what the Roman Forum would have been like in its day.
Our tour guide was great - had a lot of knowledge about the Colosseum, shared a lot of information about the sights and was very informative about the Colosseum and the ruins It was a great tour and we thoroughly enjoyed the morning. Would highly recommend this group.
One has to appreciate the efficient way the tour was conducted. I was delayed for my tour by 12 minutes but the guides put me into he next tour with a very friendly smile and attitude. The guide Barbara was amazing. Very good English. Very knowledgable. Answered questions. Cracked a few jokes made us feel very very good...most of all she took us back in time to Ancient Rome... Wow!!! Thank you Barbara. Thank you aviator for having the right vendor on the ground...:-
Tour guide Massimo was entertaining and very knowledgeable about the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. We had a very enjoyable few hours and we learned a lot.
Paolo was an excellent tour guide. The tour is very informative, fun and I would highly recommend. There are alot of walking and steps so definately wear comfortable shoes.
We had a great time on this tour. It was our favorite tour while in Rome. Our tour guide, Sev, was amazing. He provided us with a lot of information and made it fun. We would recommend this tour and if you are lucky maybe you will get Sev.
