I was travelling alone and this was perfect for me. I enjoyed lively conversations over a beautiful meal. That in itself was almost worth the price. Having a private Guide from one of the Colosseum staff members for the tour was refreshing. It felt like the whole place was dedicated just for us and there was only 14 people in the group. Having said that, the presentation wasn't structured and was off the cuff. That could be one further improvement but that is not the fault of Viator.
This was a beautiful trip. We surprised our family with this dinner and tour for our last night and it was a perfect way to finish up. The dinner was fantastic. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. It was awesome being in the colosseum at night when there was hardly anyone around. Perfection!
Dinner was spectacular with stunning views from the rooftop restaurant. Our Colosseum tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Visiting this attraction at night after dinner was much more relaxing than battling the daytime crowds!
Best tour of Rome, not cheap but truly excellent dinner and then a fantastic tour of the Colosseum with a most knowledgeable guide. He was so enthusiastic, truly knowledgeable of Roman History and the atmosphere was electric. Highly recommended and will always be the best experience of Rome...........
Food and wine were well-matched. View from the restaurant was superb. The tour of the Colosseum had two aspects. The first its beauty with the lights at night was so superior to daytime that it was hard to believe we where in the same place. Secondly, it was wonderful not having any crowd there and it was awe inspiring.
Excellent dinner and tour. The colosseum was nearly empty and it was great to explore. The night made it difficult for pictures inside the colosseum but it was still a view I and #39;ll never forget.
Great dinner on the top floor of the Forum Hotel! Would have enjoyed sitting with other tour guests but each couple had our own table. Seeing the Colluseum at night without the crowds was amazing. We saw the ground floor level the lower level with elevator recreated. Not allowed up to 3rd level.
Fabulous - terrific dinner, interesting information from the tour guide and amazing tour! Would highly recommend this.
Absolutely fantastic. This is, in our opinion, the only way to do it. The venue, food and guide were all brilliant.
Angela Militella, our guide, was amazing- so passionate and knowledgeable. She made the night! The roof top dinner was lovely and seeing the Colloseum, The Flavius amphitheater, at night was breathtaking. Highly recommend the tour!
Although pricey, it was outstanding. The dinner and surroundings were over the top and the night tour was the best . Our guides were great and gave us insiders information on restaurants and places to see. Highly recommend . Will never forget it !!
This was a wonderful experience. Dinner was delicious an in a great location. So much food and wine, we couldn't finish it. The tour of the Colosseum at night gave a different perspective. Our guide was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. It was a great evening.
This tour started with an excellent full course leisurely Italian meal on a beautiful roof top. After our terrible Eiffel Tower tour/dinner experience our expectations for this particular tour were not high. The meal was wonderful and exceeded expectations. It started out with a sparkling wine toast and being sat at individual spacious tables with wonderful views of Ancient Rome. The quality of the food and the attentive service were impeccable. After our meal we enjoyed a short walk through the forum towards the Colosseum while our English speaking guide told us some history of the forum. The night tour of the Colosseum was amazing. Absolutely no lines to wait in, only a few other groups were allowed in so no crowds and the temperature at night was perfect. A guide that works for the Colosseum took over and walked us through while painting the picture of what it was like when at it's prime use.
This was an awesome tour! Anna did a Super job as uour tour leader . The guide who took us around the Colosseum was very Good Also. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Colosseum . dinner was outstanding and the view from the roof top was amazing. !
This trip was the bomb! We had a really nice dinner first at the Hotel Forum. Had a bit of a view, but not awe-inspiring. Food was delicious. Then we walked over to the Colosseum and met our night guide. This fellow knew it all. We went from the bottom to the top, and I learned something at every stop. It is really expensive, but the group is small and there are few people in there at night, so you felt like the VIP's they say your are.
Outstanding food, great guide, and getting to see areas of the Colosseum that no one else sees, was truly a highlight.
Excellent value. The evening's dinner was not only enjoyable, but, the setting was as well. With appetizing entree choices, the rooftop venue provide an atmosphere perfect for couples. The Colosseum night tour was excellently done by Francesca, and the tour's contact point, was very helpful, and informative as well, going out of her way to make sure all participants were comfortable, and enjoying the evening.
Incredible experience facilitated beautifully by our guide Massimo. The dinner at the forum was beautiful, classic italian with outstanding service and stunning views over the Italian Forum. The tour itself at night is breathtaking taking this tour and avoiding the crowds is the way to go. Our guide inside was outstanding and I hung on every word she said. take this tour if you want a truly unique experience.
Dinner at the Forum was amazing. The food and service were impeccable. Our guide was very informative and entertaining. He recommended a great place for dinner the next night and other sights to see. Once we got to the Colosseum it was beautiful. The guide there gave us lots of information and the tour was great because we pretty much had the place to ourselves and didn't have to deal with the day time crowds.
Dinner was fabulous! Interesting seeing the Colosseum at night, guide very informative.
So glad that we did this. The colosseum at night is beautiful. The day tours are so crowded and this was a very nice, small group with a personalized tour. Dinner was lovely and delicious.
We were not sure about this tour as the reviews appeared mixed. First off...We found the food at The Hotel Forumn to be very good. Yes, the restaurant is a bit dated but that only added to the charm for us. We had a view of the forumn from our table and we were able to have our own table, not forced to sit with others we did not know on the tour.
What a lovely way to start a tour! The waiters were super attentive, and as it started to get dark and dinner and dessert, was over btw I am gluten free and they served a fabulous gluten free pasta we took a brief walk to The Forumn. There were about 16 people in our tour and that was not too many. There was no line, and with a full moon rising we entered the Colosseum. This was our first night in Rome and what a fabulous way to begin!!! The Colosseum at night is NOT brightly lit. It is just right to give you the wonderful feel that you are walking on sacred ground. I wish I could recall the name of the young lady leading the tour...She was simply delightful and told the compelling story and history of The Colosseum. The underground access was amazing. We chatted later in the week with tourists who had just visited the Colosseum during the day and it was hot and very crowded. We maybe saw one other tour group ahead of us but it was timed to make you feel like we were there by ourselves. There is quite a bit of walking but if one asks, there are elevators and the Viator tour guides go above and beyond to accomodate one's needs We were not rushed at all. Just be prepared to do a bit of walking and to have to look for a taxi after. There is no taxi line at the exit. Make sure to ask your guide where to pick up a cab, a bunch of us got lost.
This tour was fabulous. Starting from our rooftop dinner at the Hotel Forum to our private tour of the Colosseum, everything was perfect! Our tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable! The food was absolutely delicious and the views were magnificent!
