Giovanni our guide was just fabulous. Very amicable - made us all feel comfortable including our 12 and 13 year olds and made every effort to ensure we were travelling ok. Excellent knowledge of the subject matter - an archaeologist no less - that gave us a wonderful insight into the history of the Colosseum and forum.
Azurra was a fabulous tour guide with excellent English! She provided great information and could answer all our questions. The headsets made it easy to hear and it was so nice not to wait in lines, especially in the heat.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was an architect by trade and his inset on the Colosseum was really interesting. Unfortunately the Palatine Hill closed early without prior notice and we couldn't get inside however we were taken for a walk around the compound and learned a lot interesting facts. Highly recommended. Also definitely recommend this due to skipping the queue's!
Fantastic, Valentina was great. Archaeologist inside of Coloseum was also fantastic. Both gave us lot history information. Highly recommend the tour. Halina
The tour was great. Overall recommend this tour with this company. They took us to other parts other than the Colosseum. Although there wasn't enough time spent in the other areas, you were allowed to spend your free time after the tour end in spots the tour did not cover or areas where you wanted to take more pictures.
Very interesting - guide was extremely knowledgeable and I would recommend this trip
Our tour guide, Alessandro, was very informative and entertaining. His English is good and easy to understand. I highly recommend this tour! You get to see and learn so much in just 3 hours, especially if you have a tour guide with as much enthusiasm as Alessandro.

A fantastic tour with City wonders who are a fantastic company. Our tour guide Barbara was very informative and friendly. Made the tour worthwhile.
With this tour you get right into the Colosseum and Forum, which is basically priceless on a scorching day when you see the hours long line for people without tickets. The tour guide was really informative and she kept my attention throughout the duration of the tour. Highly recommend this tour!
We had a very informative afternoon. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Would have liked to do the underground tour but we left it too late and it was booked out and we were on very limited time. However this is very good and would highly recommend. Well worth the price as without a guide you don't know what you are looking at!
I cannot say enough about City Wonders, and specifically, our guide, Federica. We liked her so much on our Skip the Line Colosseum Tour, that when we found out she was going to be one of the guides on the day of our Vatican tour, we requested her again on our Vatican tour. We went in Augustheight of tourist season and heat, and could not have been more thrilled. The directions to meet with your tour group are perfect. I highly suggest bringing your own earphones because the ones provided on the Colossuem tour are uncomfortable. Our guide, Federica was knowledgeable and passionate about her city, it's origins, and you could tell she loved sharing the information with her tour group. We loved listening to her descriptions, anticdotes because she did it in a way that took you on a journey, rather than being given a bunch of facts. Her English was superb, her demeanor delightful and the sheer amount of knowledge was astounding. She answered every question asked, and was concerned for her tour members on a very crowded, hot, and sunny day. She always tried to have people in the shade as much as possible. Skipping the line in August is worth EVERY PENNY! The sights of the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palentine Hill are something you will never see or experience anywhere else in the world. Thank you!!!!
A really great 3 hours with our guide Fabrizio- he made the Colosseum come alive with the details he provided.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide was very informative and passionate! He had done the tour for 40 years! Walked straight into the colosseum with the skip the line ticket and it was worth every penny! Would highly recommend!
Amazing excursion and an amazing guide. Really enjoyed this excursion.
I booked the enhanced tour which takes you into the depths of the Colosseum. Believe you me, if you want to see the full picture, then book this tour. it gives you access to areas most other visitors do not get and gives you the real sense of life around this place. You walk where the gladiators and animals once went, saw the holding areas and to be honest, the only thing that is missing is the smell. The tour guides are excellent, full of knowledge and enthusiasm and without them, you would not understand what you are looking at. This is a must in Rome.
One of my favorite tours I took in Italy! We had a terrific and energetic tour guide. An overall amazing experience! 10/10 would recommend! Worth skipping the lines!
Four of us joined the 2 pm Sunday tour and we were really lucky to only have 7 of us in total in our group should have been 20! which made it almost like a personal tour!
Danella our guide was fantastic - she new so much information and history - i don't know how she manages to know so much!
The Colosseum is so impressive and it was fantastic to get such a good understanding of how it was used and the changes it has gone though over time.
Holy moley, what a tour! Words cannot describe how flopping great this tour was. Our tour guide knew the sites like the back of her hand, and even answers a few curly fries questions I had about the tour. Thoroughly recommend a guided tour
Location for the tour was easy to find. Our guide was awesome giving you time for pics and restroom breaks. The tour was not rushed and full of information my brain was on overload. It was a perfect day in Rome. I recently recommended this tour to a family of 6 and they couldn't have been happier. Take this tour and enjoy!
Highly recommend, and skipped the massive queue, worth spending the extra money just for that alone.
