Sylvia was a great guide and was very knowledgeable. She was also very cognizant of how everyone in the group was doing - stopping for water, breaks and adjusting for mobility issues. This a comprehensive tour so come prepared. Bring a water bottle and you can refill at various points. Hat and sunscreen a must.

Much better tour experience than the one we had at the Vatican. Although this one is more rushed. Not even given time to use the toilet. It was not the peak season yet and there were so many people. Did not make it to the top of the Roman Forum. There's probably better tours around that this one.

Separated from Tour
George_S
, May 2022
I became separated from the group after descending the stairs in the colosseum and was not told by radio where to meet them. My wife told the guide that I wasn't with the group, but I received no instructions where to meet them in the Colosseum. The guide should have made certain that everyone was present once we descended the stairs. I was not able to complete the tour since they did not wait to connect me.

Missed Connections, No Tour for Me.
Xania_W
, May 2022
I never got to go on the tour. Went to the meeting point, never connected with the tour leader, walked around looking for them for a half hour, even tried to see if I could connect with them as they went in the gates—no luck. I had to buy another entry ticket for another day and I won’t get the benefit of the tour guide. Left sad and disappointed. Maybe the tour leader could have tried calling or texting to connect with me instead of just leaving me in the Roman dust? :(

The guide was so obviously passionate about the information he was sharing and the way he conveyed the history in a way that brought us back into what it must have been like made this an incredible experience for us.

DONT TRUST. RUDE tour guides
Marcy_L

Had a tour planned for 1030. The directions to meet the tour group were terrible. They tell you to meet in one spot that you would have no idea unless you live there. And on this day there was a marathon and the roads were blocked off you could not get into the Colosseum or the meeting location. They did not let us know this was happening so our group and 20 others obviously missed the tour time and showed up 10 minutes later. They told me they could rebook me on the next tour at 3 o’clock if I paid them for another tour at $272 . When I asked why they could not just put us all onto the next tour without charging us they said it was because we missed the first tour. We got into a loud verbal disagreement. The tour guides were extremely rude in trying to remedy the issue. So we did not get to tour the Colosseum and out $272. Along with 16 other people who were late due to the marathon.

Good overall guide. Wish there was less time In the. Beginning or to keep walking and talking. We didn’t have much time in the coliseum to admire the structure.

Our Guide Roberto was excellent, had a lovely way with him and communicated on a level we understood, he paid attention to our two young children and they also got a lot from the tour, never once did it feel tiresome.

Bad tour guide
Megan_C
, Apr 2022
We had Andrea as our tour guide, we were so looking forward to this specific tour and we’re sadly let down by the experience. Andrea was doing the English tour but both me and my sister and numerous other people in the group could not understand a word she was saying. She did not explain anything well at all, we didn’t know any of the history of the Roman forum. She was extremely rude also. When we got to the Colosseum we left the group early because it was painful to walk around for hours not hearing a word she said and not understanding anything about the history. For the price we paid for this experience you need to do better.

FANTASTIC
AndikanCharles_W

Was one of the best tours I've ever been a part of. Out tour guide Mike (from Romania just incase I didn't get his name right) was fantastic and very knowledgeable. He had a good sense of humor and made sure we weren't bored at any point. Also, I didn't have to queue to get any ticket so that was a very huge plus for me. I highly recommend this tour for anyone.

Do not book this tour!
Sharon_B
, Apr 2022
Do not book this tour. We booked it as it was for a small group between 15-20. There were 31 in our group! 40 minutes after the start time we still hadn’t seen a thing. Between waiting for late people & the tour guide getting mixed up with entry tickets. We started at the Forum & were rushed through, missing some parts as we obviously had to be at the Colosseum for a set time.

Tour guide was disorganised, ran the tour too long and didn't speak clear English
Lauren_P
, Apr 2022
We had Claudia as our tour guide and she was definitely not of the standard required for the English speaking tour - she was incredibly difficult to understand. She was also very disorganised - there was no clear structure to the tour of each site and contributed to the tour going longer than expected. We were meant to be on a 3 hour tour, however she took that amount of time just in the Roman Fourm and Palatine Hill to the point where we missed our entry time to the Colosseum. The company were really good at getting us new entry tickets, however it all put a damper on our experience and we couldn't enjoy the tour as much as we would have because of how exhausted and frustrated we all were. There were times where she wouldn’t wait for the wider group before moving along to the next area. At times she simply disappeared and left us without telling us the next move. The non-English speaking tour guides definitely seemed more prepared than ours. Unacceptable for the company to hire a tour guide with limited English.

Lots of steps! Guide kept us moving and was knowledgeable. Most interesting was the repercussions of changing beliefs from pagan to Christianity and the history of the colosseum.

This was our first time in Italy, our guide, Daniel made the tour the highlight of our trip!! He was interesting, told us a lot about the Colosseum that we would have never known without his knowledge. I highly recommend taking the guided 3 hr tour, you won’t regret it!!
