Our guide, Brian, was very knowledgeable and funny. It was wonderful to be able to skip the lines both at the Colosseum and Forum. Would highly recommend this tour! Thank you, Brian!
Best 3 hours we had in Rome!
Our guide Anton was extremely informative and entertaining.
My 14 and 8 year old children also loved it.
This tour made our short break in Rome. The reason - apart from the splendours of the Colosseum , Forum and Palatine Hill - was our guide, Brian. His knowledge, dry wit and very evident love for his subject made this the best sightseeing tour we have ever been on.
My children loved this! It was their favorite! Our tour guide was the best! We all learned so much!!
What a great day this was! I booked several tours through Viator and couldn't be more pleased. From ease of use of the website, communications, handling changes, confirmations to final execution everything went smoothly, timely and efficiently. We were running late this day because we didn't realize how much time would be involved with public transportation. We should have just walked! No problem, we got in with the next tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Richard, our tour guide, was a unique mix of entertainer and professor. We felt blessed to be able to laugh while learning so much! Thanks!
Great tour and James was a very informative guide. Highly recommended!
Fantastic - very knowledgeable, personable and interesting guide - highly recommended.
Awesome tour guide! And it was very special since it ended up being just a small group of 4.
There's no other way to describe this tour other than INCREDIBLE! A trip to Rome is not complete with seeing the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. Our tour guide Kathy was great. We highly recommend this tour.
This was a great tour just 12 people, and our guide, Cathy, was just brilliant she made it both entertaining and educational, she is just a mine of information
This tour was worth every penny! We really appreciated the small group size of 10 people, compared with other tours of 25-35. Our guide, Cathy, was simply amazing! Her knowledge of and enthusiasm for the history and stories of Ancient Rome was impressive, and she brought the ancient city alive with her stories and humour. We were hanging on her every word, as were any other tourists nearby our group! Thank you, Cathy!
My one dissatisfaction was with the vague directions to the tour office we were given. We were provided an address, but these addresses are unlike North American addresses. The directions also stated that we are the only tour office within 150 metres of the Colosseum, which implied that it was just across the street - and it certainly wasn't! It took us almost half an hour to find the office once we were in the immediate area of the Colosseum, which caused unneeded stress. We encountered another couple from our small group also wandering around looking for the office, and with some difficulty, finally ran across someone from the office by a nearby cafe. It would have been appreciated if better directions were given, and someone from the tour office had been standing at key locations to help their paid guests find the office. One of the couples in our small group didn't show up for this fairly pricey tour, and I can fully imagine that they simply could not find the office starting point!
But, a really great tour overall which we thoroughly enjoyed! Would highly recommend it, and Cathy in particular!
We had a great time on this tour. Our guide was hilarious with all of her stories gossip about how things were in Roman times. Her knowledge was impressive and her pace was just right!
Nice and informative tour, Got off to a really good start, but toward the second half of the tour it lost a little focus.
Great tour but our guide was held by authorities at the collesum due to no guide license. He was very very smart and knowledgable and very good discussions...we liked him a lot.
The skip the line was rubbish. We skipped one line only to join another which was in parallel to the main que line. The tour however was good and informative.
Our Tour guide was very informative and spoke English fairly well
It was worth doing to see the areas included in the tour. However, it was rushed and the tour guide was rather rude in her explanation of things. I didn't appreciate her attempt at humor as it was crude and irreverent to the history of the places we visited.
Not really thrilled with this tour. Richard was our tour guide and the first problem is that he is the softest talker around. Very difficult to hear. He was way to wordy for me -- so busy talking that he led us out of the Colosseum before we really had a chance to take any pictures. Also it started pouring in Ancient Rome and he just continued on without looking behind him and he actually lost us and we never caught up with him again. Very disappointed in the tour that we took. Would not recommend having Richard as a guide for anyone.
