Traveller Tips

Walking required long with a lot of stairs so people should be advised.
Skip the line did not apply so spent lots of time in line.
I advise all travelers to take tours with the fewest number of people possible for these venues are very crowded and popular places for visitors.

Rip Off
Brett_B, June 2023
I got ripped off by this vendor. The guide did not show up at the meeting point. The staff working at the Pantheon confirmed that this vendor in particular rips people off. We ended up having to request a refund and pay 100 euros outside the colosseum for a 1 hour tour… STAY AWAY!!!
Local guide didn’t show up
Jennifer_P, May 2023
No guide ever showed up for the tour. Since they have your tickets you are unable to do the tour without waiting 4+ hours in line.
A waist of time- no trip took place
IRIS_P, May 2023
Trip never happened After an hour and a half of waiting The guid never showed up snd never called or notified for any information very disappointing and very upsetting Since tours are booked and no time to see it It is irresponsible and bad for the company
Tour guide a no-show
Jennifer_K, May 2023
Our tour guide did not show up. There were a total of -0 people who booked this tour and we all waited for 45 minutes with no response from the tour guide. Very disappointed.
Tickets not available, then partially. Glad we were able to enter at all, despite losing half a day.
Christoph_B, May 2023
Met at the prescribed time in the morning. Were told that not bookings were available for morning, were offered a complimentary, but not very informative tour of the surroundings of the Pantheon and promised tickets were available in the afternoon. Met again, when entering Forum Romanum it became clear, that there were new issues: A few adult tickets were missing and a few people would need to join the next group. We were told this just after leaving Forum Romanum (where we were rushed through). This was a pretty bad idea, because otherwise volunteers could have spent the time there. After heated discussions, our family had to split, with one parent waiting approx. 60mins outside of Forum Romanum and Colosseum. All in all a bad experience, we are glad we were able to get in at all, but effectively lost more than half of a 3-days stay in Rome, and due to the emotions in the group probably a few years of lifetime. Do not recommend.
Need to claim dmanages
Shameel_P, May 2023
Need to claim damages as the tour guide didn’t turn up and there was no communication from Viator or the guide whatsoever, leaving an entire group disappointed and loss of the day
Beware, tour did not happen.
Andrea_S, May 2023
Tour did not happen, service provider stopped providing services for Viator two weeks ago, yet Viator charged my credit card and never notified participants that there would be NO tour. 15 people were waiting for the tour and no one showed.
Wouldn’t recommend.
Jody_B, May 2023
The tour was cancelled and we were not notified. We found out through others in our tour that called the head quarters that the trip was cancelled.
Tour Cancelled- No Warning
Kecia_V, May 2023
We waited at the meeting point for 20 minutes after the start time only to find out that the tour provider had gone out of business 2 weeks prior. We still received reminders for the trip from Viator in the days prior to our tour.
Tour was cancelled without notice.
Ryan_B, May 2023
The tour was cancelled without notice. All of the tour ended up being cancelled that same day so we were not able to get rescheduled. In addition, the next day tours were all sold out.
SCAM: Never showed up
Katherine_P, May 2023
This was the worst experience we had on our trip. Our tour guide never showed up. When we tried calling, the number did not work. When we called viator directly, they did not help us. Still waiting on a refund. Do not recommend.
Scam scam scam
Laura_S, May 2023
If there was an option for zero stars, it would be appropriate since there was zero tour. The guide did not show up. After waiting and waiting, we gave up. We did not get a chance to see any of the top sights in Rome because of this SCAM. Viator needs to do something about this.
MEA TOUR IS A LIAR, said official at Pantheon
maryjane_a, May 2023
It was a rip off. TERRIBLE. REFUND THE MONEY ASAP. The MEA tour did not make The person was not there!! The guard at Parthenon said MEA, they are LISRS. THEY HAVE A VERY BAD REPUTATION FOR TAKING THE MONEY AND NOT SHOWING UP. We followed his suggestion and doubled chef in the meeting place then returned to him. PLEASE I WANT A FULL REFUND FOR BOTH OUR TICKETS!! Very disappointed DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Barbara_S, May 2023
The company never showed up for the tour. There were many people waiting but nobody got a cancellation text. After waiting for close to an hour, someone said it was cancelled due to a "medical emergency". I hope I get my money back. Unfortunately I will never get to see the coliseum.
Scam Tour Company
Rene_S, May 2023
I paid for a guided tour and the tour guide never showed up at the meetup spot. They took out money and didn’t deliver what they said they would
No tour
Dennis_W, May 2023
Tour operator did not show up and we were left without a tour, which left everyone helpless. I will never use this option again
Don’t even bother!! No show tour guide!
Philip_S, May 2023
The tour guide never showed up and we requested a refund. We have yet to get our refund. Sucks to plan a tour when you are on vacation and you are just stuck! We made our own adventure without going into the Colosseum. Thanks for nothing Viator!
DO NOT USE THIS TOUR. Guide doesn’t show up.
Rebekah_F, May 2023
DO NOT USE THIS TOUR. This should be taken off of Viator. Our tour guide didn’t show up & didn’t let any of the patrons or Viator know that he wasn’t going to show up. We asked the Pantheon employees about this tour and they said that this tour company specifically does this frequently with no explanation or warning. Don’t waste your time, money, or effort.
Paul_R, May 2023
Don’t book this if you are on a ship coming into Citivicchia. The train will not get you ther on time for the tour.
Tourist trap- don’t book! No show!
Katrin_L, May 2023
Tour Guide did not show up, still waiting for the refund. Huge disappointment, do not book! Not possible to find another guide to these places, so extremely disappointing. The guides at pantheon already indicated that this travel guide often does not show up. Seems to be a tourist trap- don’t book!!
