Our walking tour 8305P2 covered all the areas promised in Viator's overview. Our guide, a history teacher, spun a verbal tale of Roman life and used the architecture before us as scenery. In some cases she augmented her tale with photos of the buildings as archeologists uncovered them.

The pace of the tour was good. Everyone could keep up with the walking. Adequate time was allowed for photos. Restroom and water fountains were pointed out. Although it was Easter Sunday and the annual Rome Marathon day, our guide led us through ticketing and security lines quickly.

Wow, what amazing Tour. We had booked the 3.15pm tour and on the morning of the tour it commenced raining heavily which made us a little worried. The rain kept on, so we just had to jump in. We met our tour guide Nicola at the Colosseo Metro station and it turned out that we were the only two. I guess the rain scared others away. This was very fortunate for us as it effectively gave us a private tour. Nicola's knowledge of the history and of the times was truly amazing. We learn't so much about the operation of the Colosseum, the life and times of the Gladiators and of the structures of the ancient society in general. For us this reshaped our understanding which we now realise was probably falsely influenced by 50s and 60's Hollywood movies. We then pushed on to Forum where we learn't how the over the various phases of the Roman Empire the complex integration of the buildings now ruins were formed. Whilst we finished with tired and very damp feet it was truly worth it and we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have had Nicola as our guide. His engaging and friendly approach was brilliant and he has left us with and experience that we will carry with us for the rest of our lives. Debbie and Graeme C Melbourne, Australia

This was a great tour and really worth the money. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was a wonderful source of information and for putting the sites into perspective.

It was a long tour of around 4 hours but excellent and I got much more out of visiting the sites than had I just had the audio guide and wandered around by myself.

Highly recommended if you want to get something more out of your visit.

We really enjoyed the path of this tour which also included Palantine Hill. Gabriella of Roma Experience was wonderful. She really explained everything, and made sure to bring use to beautiful locations for photos. After looking at other itineraries for similar tours, very pleased with choosing this tour due to the addition of Palantine Hill, and the informative nature of the tour. The tour ends with free time to explore the Roman Forum.

Our group of 6 was led by Ariana who was very friendly and informative. She utilized an iPad to show us information to supplement her narrative which was outstanding. There was lots of walking as we covered the entire Collosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum, so good walking shoes are a must.
