Disappointing tour

Not very clear instructions for collection tickets area. Made us go one big round also unable to find the collection ticket office. Suggest to have meet at one place and direct us to ticketing office. In the end we did not join the tour. Very disappointing.

The history and access to the Colesseum and the knowledge of the guide around the Forum was brilliant. Although the tour was expensive we all thoroughly enjoyed it and would heartedly recommend 👍

The coliseum underground

We toured the coliseum underground. Vida, our tour guide, was knowledge and fun. It was an afternoon tour, which was quite warm. There are a lot of steps and walking on uneven stones so we got a little worn out. Water is a must! This tour was fascinating and we highly recommend it.

Our family had a wonderful time seeing the Colosseum above and underground, the Forum and Palatine Hill. George was a wonderful guide and provided so much information. The Tour company went out of the way to help us find the meeting point and did not leave us behind when we were late. It was much appreciated.

Very disorganized process. Showed up for our 10:30 meet and we're told we were called for 9:00 am meet which we were not. Tour company rectified but it did sour the experience

Very poor communication resulted in us losing over $500

After booking we received an email confirming time & location. We arrived 5 min early but did not see details to arrive 15 mins early. As a result we were told we could not take the tour we had booked and lost our total cost of over $500. Very disappointing and it could be so easy to include that detail in the confirmation email. When it said meet at X time at Y location we thought we were good arriving 5 mins early.

It was a great tour and we had a great tour guide. It's worth it to get the underground tour. The forum was also included. The pace was perfect for us.

Professional archeologist guide with exclusive access!
Christopher_B

Amazing tour! Andrea, our guide, was so great. He was educated in archeology and even works on the Palatine hill as an excavator, so he really knows the area and its history. He was easy going and so excited to share and answer questions. The folks at the main office were very friendly as well and came to fetch us when we couldn’t find the meeting place. There were only 12 people in the tour, just as advertised. I wouldn’t pay less for a bigger tour group, 12 was plenty. We were given radios with head phones so we could easily hear everything Andrea said. Everything went smoothly, even with Covid white card/green pass screenings, we got through the lines quickly. I felt like a VIP when we got special access to the underground and the arena floor and some folks who tried to sneak in right behind us got bumped. Only some tour guides have this access like ours did. Thanks Andrea, and thanks for the lunch recommendation!

We purchased tickets and when we got to the travel office aviator overbooked us and we’re not able to take the tour. Very disappointing! When booking call travel office and verifying your booking cause apparently this is very common.

Awesome Tour

The Colosseum tour was great. Our guide took us to the reconstructed floor area and then to the floor of the underground where the animals and slaves were kept. We were shown the entryway used by the gladiators to enter the lower level. We also saw a reconstruction of the type of wooden mechanical hoist used to elevate animals onto the arena floor. The guide explained how the colosseum looked in the day and took us to the upper levels so we could see how some of the spectators made to their upper (cheap) seats near the top of the walls. The next tour of the Roman Forum was even better. We met our next guide outside of the Colosseum who gave us a very informative history lesson of the Colosseum, and how its building materials were used removed and recycled to build churches and other structures in Rome in following centuries. We were taken to the Palantine Hill that overlooks the Forum grounds and again were given an excellent explanation complete with photos that showed the various monuments in the Forum grounds as compared the present day ruins. Highly recommend these tours.
