Awesome Tour
Dave_D

The tour was great and tour guide was extremely knowledgeable providing an abundance of information about the colosseum, the underground and the forum. Being able to tour the underground portion of the colosseum was awesome. So much history and interesting facts about the elevator system, stage animals and gladiators. Ending the tour at the forum and palatial hill was great. I highly recommend the tour.

Such an amazing tour with Katherina as our guide. She was a wealth of knowledge. This tour of the underground of Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill is one not to miss

Our whole family LOVED this tour. Marcelo was very enthusiastic, deeply knowledgeable, and a wonderful tour guide. Would highly recommend him and the tour! I would take this tour again the next time we are in Rome. It was that good.

Only okay
Kendray_E

This tour was only okay. Being able to access the lower level of the Colosseum and the Arena was very cool and exclusive, but the guide was lackluster. I don't know if it was a language barrier or a lack of depth of knowledge, but I didn't find her to be very informative and a few of us in the group had to continually push her to tell us more. For the price I paid, I expected to come away with more knowledge than I did. We also got very little in the way of a tour of the Forum, and absolutely none of Palatine Hill. In part I think that's because 3 hours isn't enough time for everything, but it was disappointing to feel like I didn't really get everything I paid for. We were encouraged to continue exploring on our own after the end of the tour (which I did for 1.75hrs) but weren't even provided with a map to enable us to do so.

Our tour guide was very informative. We really enjoyed the underground area of the arena. It was 104 degrees when we toured. Very very hot. Our tour guide took frequent water breaks which we greatly appreciated.

colosseum underground
Kath_B
, Jul 2022
Managed to rebook this tour on a different day after Viator cancelled the first one the day before without any explanation. The first part of the tour, the colosseum and underground section were really interesting. The second part, the Forum, was not as engaging as felt we didn't seem to explore the area fully. The guide was pleasant but not very engaging.

Our guide Francesca was fantastic. Great underground tour experience, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. Hike up the Palatine hill is no joke for the out-of-shape, especially in the summer Roman heat! Tour lasted more than 2-hours. If you are really interested in Ancient Rome, it’s a must!

Great way to see the Forum and Colosseum and learn some history. We had been here before but never like this. It’s expensive but worth it if you can afford it. Be careful when booking a small group experience. Some have over 20 people. Our group was limited to eight.

Best Spanish tour in Rome

Lorenzo our guide is excellent. He speaks Spanish fluently but he also has a pHd con archeology so he knows a lot! And he cares about the knowledge he shares. It’s a must do!

Lia was a phenomenal tour guide. We gained so much knowledge about the rich Roman history. We highly recommend doing this tour. It was hot during June, and there was a lot of activity, so be prepared. Try to go in October or November for nicer weather.

Family tour of Collosium and Forum
James_F

Christian was a wonderful tour guide, he was extremely knowledgeable and taught our group many new things about the collosium and life on the Palentine Hill. It was an extremely hot day and he made things as comfortable as possible with frequent breaks in the shade and stops to cool off by the fountains.

Ariana was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Coliseum, and was able to bring it to life for everyone. She also was gracious and checked on everyone and their needs due to the extreme heat.
