Fantastic guide. Prepare if it's a hot day!
William_C

Meeting Point -- There are several places to meet next to the arch so be careful to read what side you are meeting on. Also, there is construction going on so add 5-10 minutes to navigate the place. Guide -- Our guide, Katarina, was fantastic. She has a Phd and is very knowledgeable. Heat -- We took at 3p tour on a day when it was 99 degrees F outside. It was oppressively hot and no one on our tour really enjoyed it because of the heat. Be sure to bring water and light, lightweight clothes. Or book a night tour! Path -- We started with the Forum which was excellent. I could have spent another hour or two here. If you want an in depth tour of the Forum, you have to pick a different tour. We definitely hit the highlights and photo ops. Then we hit the Colosseum. Headset -- They were standard. The sound was ok but not great. Logistics -- We had a ticketing problem that was no one's fault (a large child was counted accidentally as an adult), but that problem caused us to spend 20 minutes or more in the searing hot sun. Again, wear proper clothing. Colosseum -- It was packed with people making it difficult to follow the guide through the crowds. She did an excellent job. Underground -- Our tour did not include the underground gladiator area. I recommend that you upgrade to that. Conclusion -- This was a great introductory tour. Our guide was outstanding.

We had a great tour with Christina. Despite the brutally hot temperatures, she kept us moving and informed. Available water on the tour would have been a great idea. Heads up: NO PANTS or long dresses required any longer!!

Our tour guide was wonderful. The colosseum was very busy but our guide navigated the crowds well and gave us a great small-group experience in the middle of what would otherwise have been chaos. I and my two teenaged boys learned so much and our guide made the stories fun. Definitely recommend.

Lots of Ancient Rome, not enough Coliseum.
Dawn_S

Our tour guide, Janna, was friendly and knowledgeable. Totally not her fault, but the tour took a long time to get to the Coliseum. If I had to book a tour of this place again (Coliseum), I would look for one that skipped Palatine and focused exclusively on the Coliseum. My kids said the Coliseum part was amazing.

Our guide, Jo, was awesome! She took her time with us and stopped when we needed a break. We are all in our 60's and needed a little extra time navigating the steps.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, but we felt that too much time was spent in the Palatine Hill area and Forum and not enough in the Colosseum. A lot of information was given.

Susana was very informative. I thought the tour was good. I think you can do the coliseum on your own though.
