Hot, crowded, and hard to hear
Tim_P, Sept 2023
Unfortunately, with the large crowds it was difficult to hear our guide. Also, the group of 24 seemed too large, because if we became separated by more than 15 feet, the audio would stop working. I think groups of 12 should be the maximum size.
Wonderful, knowledgeable...
Natasha_D, Sept 2023
Wonderful, knowledgeable and insightful tour guide Laora - group was a little big but didn’t affect the tour.
Expensive but worth it.
Wendy_L, Sept 2023
This tour left right on time with 25 people in our group. The guide was very knowledgeable and responsive. His directions in any crowded areas were very clear. The headsets worked well to allow us to hear all he said. We never had to wait in any long lines - just entered easily and quickly.
Great tour at the Colosseun
Las_P, Aug 2023
Great tour at the Colosseum. Our tour guide was very pleasant and had the group very engaged. Nice .
Eve_H, Aug 2023
Brilliant tour and guide! Tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the colosseum
Well worth it
Roxanne_K, July 2023
The guide was very easy to understand Ad generous in finding shade! The heritage was told in a way that interested the crowd.
Long line for "skip the line"
Suzanne_T, July 2023
To be fair, it was a very crowded time of year. However, we waited in a line for 45 minutes (for "skip the line"). Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but several people had to leave early because the tour was much longer due to the long wait to get in.
Diana_S, June 2023
This tour was a great experience for myself and my family, our tour guide Alessie was great. Highly recommend it - note there is a lot of walking
Well worth the 3hrs!.
Catherine_R, June 2023
We had an amazing guide Mya who engaged with all participants and was full interesting information, well worth it!
Difficult in such a busy time of year with the crowds but our guide was excellent.
Lisa_M, June 2023
Excellent guide, very informative and organized. Through no fault of hers, it was challenging with the intensity of the summertime crowds.
one not to miss!
Neil_B, June 2023
an awesome history lesson which will be enjoyed by all! Just be warned that you will be surrounded by huge crowds in many areas of the tour
This team was very...
Jackie_A, June 2023
This team was very helpful and flexible for my group of 30 people visiting Italy for adidas Eurocamp! They made our time constraints work and showed us so much in a friendly and educational way. Can’t thank them enough for making our visit so special!
Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide
Saiful_K, June 2023
The best experiences anyone ever can expect with guided tour. Our 24 members tour guide was amazing explaining critical histories and evolving stories about Roman heritage and ancient stories including lot of questions from the guests. I hope he is compensated for his well structured and knowledge to share with tourists. Compare to this experience our June 15 Vatican tour was horrible and I reported to you Viator and you all should not be charging for the services that we did not get.
Very informative!
Susan_C, June 2023
Great tour - we skipped all the lines and our guide, Helena, was a wealth of knowledge. We could have gone on our own, but we would have walked away without knowing and understanding everything that happened during that time.
Great tour!
Michael_P, June 2023
You know the tour is great when it pours with rain in the middle and you don’t care. The guide brought Ancient Rome to life in an unvarnished fashion that balanced the glory and the horror.
Great tour guide
Michelle_R, June 2023
We had a great time with Alessandro! He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Having him as a tour guide definitely made the experience fun and exciting! We got to learn so much more than if we had just seen the colosseum, forum and palantine hill on our own.
Worth the wait
Jason_C, June 2023
Knowledgeable guide, plenty of detail. Used visual aids to help explain the history behind everything. Crowded at colosseum, but that's just because it's super popular
Beautiful Rome
Eliette_C, June 2023
Enjoyed the tour very much. Very interesting. I recomend it very much, the guide told us very interesting things.
Great mix of information and movement
Amber_C, June 2023
Excellent tour with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. There is definitely a lot of walking so picking the right footwear is important. Our guide did a nice job keeping all of us together and sharing great information along with pictures.
Unbelievable experience...
Beverley_C, May 2023
Unbelievable experience felt like I was transported back to the days of Emperors and Gladiator’s Our guide Natalia was engaging and very knowledgeable
