I would definitely recommend this tour. Our guide Laura was extremely knowledgeable and flexible, provided a comprehensive history of the areas and answered a wide range of questions from the group. There was a flash storm while we were at the forum, but Laura was happy to continue, as were the group. We upgraded to have access to the underground chambers, 3rd tier and arena floor and were pleased that we did. Time and money well spent and thoroughly enjoyable.
this tour was VERY informative. The tour guide repeated herself a lot of times but she was still super sweet! and funny ! You walk all through the colosseum and learn about the history of this amazing arena. You also go to palentine hill and learn about ancient rome. ALOT of walking !! dont reccomend doing this tour the same day as a vatican tour like we did. overall would reccomend this tour
Fabio was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and patient when we asked him questions about the Colosseum and the Roman ruins nearby. He had a flair for the dramatic when describing these amazing sites, which made the tour all the more interesting. He also carried illustrations to show us how each ruin looked in ancient Rome.
First time using Viator based on my brother's recommendation and I am upset I didn't know about them sooner. The tour was extremely well organized and planned. Sarah N was extremely knowledgeable and took her time on the important aspects. Her stories and facts about the Colosseum and Roman Forum felt as if I was transported back in time to when the events were happening. Great tour and highly recommend it to anyone going to the Rome.
Best guide ever! Very knowledgeable and kept us entertained as well as providing the history.
Excellent trip. Knew we were going to the colosseum, but the Forum and the Palatine Hill were a surprise. Guide was very good.
Amazing tour of the Colosseum and ancient ruins. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and led you on a journey throughout the walk. Highly recommend!
skipping the line is a huge advantage. Time to do other things as well
Doriana was an entertaining and knowledgable guide. Tour was packed with sights and information about early Roman architecture.
This tour was the highlight of my Rome trip. The insights our guide, Francesca, shared and her knowledge of history combined with where to snap exactly the right picture really made this a perfect morning. Wear comfortable shoes, as you will be walking on ancient cobblestones and other uneven surfaces but TAKE THIS TOUR!
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.
