If you get the chance to do this tour with the purple fishour guide you will be extremely lucky. She had so much energy to keep the tour and your time extremely enjoyable. We did several tours during our trip, and this one with the extra addition of seeing below the arena and above the third floor is a must
Pur guide Peter George was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable but also considerate to our needs. He made sure the pace was good for everyone and that we remained hydrated during his super informative tour. He was great!
Our guide was great! She knew so many facts and explained everything well. It was very crowded when we went and we got separated too far to hear at one point so STAY CLOSE. The meeting place was easy to find with the description. It was a lot of walking but that's expected. We got in very quickly and easily.
Hillaria with city wonders did a wonderful job. It was entertaining and very informative. Would recommend.
This was the perfect tour to start our Italian Sojourn. If you have not seen the Colosseum with this tour, then probably, you have not been to the Colosseum.
Our tour guide knew his job well. It was all the money's worth to skip the line and be able to visit entire Colosseum like a VIP!
Well worth the money. Alina the tour guide was brilliant. She was very welcoming and gave great information. The tour was best day out of holiday.
This tour wad amazing!! Very informative.
Very very very much recommended if you want to see and hear stories about the Ancient Rome and colosseum.
Use suitable shoes for comfort walking... and ask about tour guide named Sev or Sef, he will show different angels and different stories.
We just took this tour with Alessandro as our guide. He is an archaeologist and was so informative! Trying to see these sights on our own would have been stressful and time consuming but Alessandro took care of everything. We moved straight through the lines, learned so much and were able to get great photos in the process.
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!!!!
