Exceptional tour guide, it was amazing. No questions went unanswered and I was shocked to learn tons of facts that I simply had no idea about. Brilliant tour, albeit a bit hot :)

Fabulous guide. Loved hearing all the history behind the colosseum. It made the experience all the more real with the guide rather than doing the tour by yourself. Well worth the couple of extra euros. Guided tour is the way to go!

It was a great tour and our guide Augustino was amusing, friendly and helpful but most of all he was very knowledgeable and made our tour truly memorable.

We loved Agusto, he was knowledgeable, attentive to his group, thoughtful of the seniors in our group - giving time and rest when needed while sharing his expertise on all of the sites and the history of this wonderful area.

The guide was very kind and was telling a lot of information. But not too much. It took 2 hrs but that was enough. After the tour you have as long as you want.

I would suggest booking directly through the Colosseum, the lines weren’t bad if you have a ticket and booking through this website had an extremely complicated process for getting the ticket which resulted in me losing out on getting one all together without a refund.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Dear Anna_B, thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are sorry you missed your entrance, but as explained that day, unfortunately, a refund, in this case, was not possible. We buy all the tickets for our customers in advance: they are timed and non-refundable. You booked the entrance at 10 am, and our staff was at the indicated meeting point from 9:15. We tried to call you several times, to ask you where you were, and you never answered your phone, nor did you call the emergency contact you had on the voucher or sent us a message through Viator to say you were having trouble finding us. It was only at 11 am when it was too late to use your tickets, that you sent us a message saying you couldn't find the meeting point. We know it's hard sometimes to find your way around in a foreign city, but we really did everything we could to avoid this situation. Kind regards, City Walkers Staff

Simone was very informative, and made the experience interesting, and not hurried in any way. We were able to join an earlier tour, having arrived early. We enjoyed visiting the Colosseum, and would recommend the tour to our friends

Colosseum meeting point a battle
Anslem_L
, May 2022
The tour was good and Lawrence the guide was great. The meeting point was pants. As there are so many other groups that it was like being in a cattle market. They could have moved it to the Tourist information point or somewhere else but by the green kiosk box. It was like being in ancient Rome looking for your Tribune's flag in a midst of a battle. So one star deducted. Not that this will really matter.

A must do tour in rome❤️

We booked the colosseum tour last minute on the day we were taking the tour. We are so glad we made the choice to do it as it was one of the highlights of our trip in rome. Augustino was our tour guide and we can’t recommend him enough, he was so thorough and gave such an in depth tour in which we learnt so much from him. He was very proud to be showing us the monuments within his country and his knowledge was amazing. He made us laugh throughout and the whole trip was so laid back. Thank you for showing us around we really appreciate it and will definitely be back🇮🇹❤️

I did this tour with my parents and generally speaking we loved it. We learned a lot about Roman history and about the story behind so many of the historical areas of Rome. Our tour guide Francesco was very knowledgable and was happy to answer any of our questions. We recommend bringing headphones to plug into the radio as we found the headphones given uncomfortable
