An excellent choice for families!
Andreia_B, May 2023
We loved our time with Donato! We went with our 6-year-old daughter and although shy at first, Donato was able to interact with her after a while. We really recommend this tour for families with children. Donato uses sounds and games with children and makes some mini breaks for these activities where children (and adults) get a chance to sit for a while. We got to see the most important parts and learn more about it all. Thanks, Donato!
A personalized attentive family experience with a wonderful human.

It was us and another family. Our tour guide, Guilia, was wonderful! Patient and informative. We were running late and the tour company was so helpful, communicative…above and beyond. Highly recommend. We were a family of 5 that included two teens and an 8y old.
Everyone loved it

Martina was incredible and kept the full attention of our 6 year old during the whole tour. We fully recommend.

Great for kids! Knowledgable and fun guide. We went in February with another couple and their kid and despite the business managed to keep it personalised and well paced.
Best Tour Guide.

Martina was amazing… she engaged my children and even called before your began… other tour guides do not call…. But Martina was amazing… will request her again.
Wonderful experience for kids & adults!

We had a fantastic time on this tour, and Simona was an awesome guide! She did such a great job engaging our kids (ages 7 & 10) with her fun scavenger hunt, but as parents we learned a ton too. We also appreciated all the detailed history of the Forum in addition to the Colosseum - we hadn't expected that part to be as extensive as it was. Skipping the lines is great in and of itself, but an added bonus is also skipping fighting crowds to read all the signage once you're inside - our guide took the place of that in a much more interesting way for all of us. Highly recommend!
Great tour meeting Colossal expectations

Excellent tour and guide with the family, (parents, 9 year old and grandma) plus another great family with 3 kids. Alessandra captivated us all and delivered a great day for a much anticipated tour of the colosseum and forum.

The stories about the collisium were very intetesting, great idea to have kids compete against adults, they beat us big time! Group included a 12,10,8 and 5 year old. Great tour, very informative.
Donato is knowledgeable and loves His job.
honey_b, May 2022
Our guide, Donato, was wonderful with the 5 children on the tour. He made sure to keep his commentary interactive and involved the kids every step of the way, bringing the history to their level and keeping It relevant and fun. Only hitch was extremely poor meeting instructions from the office on the confirmation receipt. I stressed for 25 minutes looking for the guide and called the office twice to understand where to meet him. It was worth it though as Donato was great. I also had no cash to give him a tip. I wrote to the office afterward to see if I could tip him using my credit card on file but I never heard back! In short, the office is terrible, but Donato was great. (Hoping he sees this and sends me his venmo info!)
Must do!
Nicole_D, May 2022
Our guide was very friendly and engaging toward the kids. We were able to hear stories and information about the colosseum and forum.
Colossal success
Joanna_G, Apr 2022
Maria was excellent. Very engaging, knowledgeable and fun. And my kids (and the adults) absorbed so much information. Thank you Maria!
Family colesseum and forum tour

Donato was terrific! He was able to teach our 13. 10 and 7 year old girls and make the experience fun as well as educational. Our 10 yr old girl loved hearing the history of the colosseum as well as the forum. Donato is the best of the tour guides we’ve had on this trip!
