My wife and I had a great time on this tour. The underground was by far the coolest part of the tour and definitely worth every penny. The smaller group size really helped you to be able to wander and see the underground area as it could get crowded. With the small size it really did feel like a private tour in The underground. Catalina did a great job and was very knowledgeable and helpful for the group in everything.

Francesca is a great guide. The way she talks about history is so exciting. I was glad when she responded to a question and let us know that Jewish slaves built the Coliseum and African slaves worked in it. This seems like an essential detail.

Magnificent tour with Lea

The tour was a highlight of our trip, and it was because of the magnificent storyteller, Lea, she was the most joyful, enthusiastic lover of history and we learnt so much. It was worth spending more to go to the underground.

Great tour to get a full visit of the Colosseum
Alan_T
, May 2022
It took us a little while to find the meeting point by the Metro, just from crowds and not being there before, but the Colosseum information was helpful in guiding us. Our tour guide was Catalina, and she was amazing! She made us feel very comfortable and encouraged us to ask a lot of questions. We were with a elderly family member who has trouble walking, so she adjusted the tour to fit our needs, and arranged for lifts/elevators at certain parts. Catalina was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of the history with us. It was an amazing tour and we're so glad we booked this one. Everything was great!

The underground at the colosseum was a great experience. It made you feel what it must have been like 2000 years ago.

Absolutely Fantastic A+++++

Our tour guide was 'Super Mario', he was very knowledgable, but also whitty, it was a brilliant tour and wouldn't hesitate to ask for him again if we hopefully go back to Rome. We were also so impressed with everyone associated with this tour. There was a demonstration and we were stuck in traffic, after grabbing an uber and driving down the short cuts, we made it, only to be ten minutes late. Thank goodness, they accomodated us and put us on the next tour - fantastic, customer service.

Don’t miss this experience
Teri_S

The Colosseum is a must “see and experience” while in Rome. The guide makes the day, and we had a wonderful woman teach us the history of the Forum, Palisade and the Colosseum. She showed us photos of what the sites looked like in their glory and was thorough and passionate in her explanations. Helpful tips: bring a water bottle and you can refill it along the way; the meeting spot is a big green kiosk on the sidewalk across from the Colosseum; it was very warm the end of May and will get hot soon; enjoy!

Magnificent experience
Susanna_M

The most impressive part of our visit to the Colosseum was the sophisticated engineering used to entertainment by the Romans for their citizens on such a grand scale. Our guide, Manola, was so helpful in explaining the true back story to the Colosseum in contrast to the Hollywood version!

Sara was excellent. Very knowledgeable, able to keep the group engaged during the entire 3 hour tour. Kind as well, she made sure one of the members of our tour who wore a knee brace was able to climb. When she wasn't she accompanied the member on the elevator.

Roman Forum and Coliseum.
David_B

Francesca was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide. It was a warm day, so she made sure we stopped periodically in the shade for her to talk. She shared so much information about the Roman Forum, Roman history and the Coliseum. It made the history of the area so interesting. Would definitely recommend.

Our tour guide was amazing. She was an archeologist and had tons of facts and cool histories that made the tour very satisfying. She was funny, friendly and even waited for me and my wife that arrived 10 minutes late. She enjoyed what she did, and it carried to us.

Francesca was lively and provided us with so much information while on our tour. Seeing the underground area of the the colosseum was such an exciting experience and we loved learning about the “behind the scenes.” We did this tour on a hot day and would definitely recommend a morning tour like we did!
