Very nice tour led by Lumi. She had a lot of valuable information and she was super fun to be with. Visiting the Colloseum is a must if it's your first stop in Rome.

Conor_M, Dec 2022
Tour guide Eugene was very good, and came across as genuinely interested in teaching us about the colosseum. Only small complaint I had was that it wasn’t clear where the start point was.
Good tour for the family

Good tour for 3 hours. Our guide Amber was awesome. Had 9 family members in group from 4 to 75 years old. Willing to take time to answer questions. Make sure to wear your walking shoes.

Very informative but mic was continuously under chin against neck. Very muffled and hard to understand!
Great Day experiencing Ancient Rome

An exciting and full afternoon at the Colosseum, Roman forum and Palatine Hill. Amazing sights and experience all packed into a few well-spent hours. The Colosseum portion covered all the highlights and the Forum/Palatine Hill tour was insightful while also leaving some time for self-exploration with the right understanding of the sites. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of good information. The narrative of the tour could have been smoother and more coherent. At points it was simply bits and pieces of historical information.

An amazing tour guide who was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone

Sean_C, Nov 2022
The tour was not a great experience. We do not expect someone who is a native English speaker but her accent was very thick and hard to understand. More than that though, she basically showed us where to walk but gave us very little historic information.
Great tour make certain you get a good guide

Amazing place to visit, luckily it was not too busy. Sadly our guide Willy was poorly prepared and not as passionate as other guides. He even ignored the lower Forum

Tour guide was great but...
John_S, Nov 2022
Tour guide was great but we didn’t see the Forum. He seemed more interested in getting us through quickly.
Our tour was less than...
Gail_H, Nov 2022
Our tour was less than spectacular, but not to say that seeing the Colosseum was not worth our time. Our guide, Carlos, was very preoccupied with time constraints, and as a result we felt very rushed! Immediately upon leaving the tour office he began moving at a pace that was very difficult to keep up with. It was a misty day, and we were concerned about slipping on the cobblestones. With a group of over 25 it was important that the guide pause periodically to be sure the group was together. We didn't even have time to take photos, because he was moving so quickly.
Would recommend!

Our tour guide was Katya (I apologize if it’s misspelled) but she was great and really funny which provided much needed laughs and a good atmosphere during long tours. She was very knowledgeable about everything, even the small details. My wife and I appreciated it and loved the tour itself.
Great guide, duration and it was nice to skip the lines!
Daniel_S, Nov 2022
Knowledgeable, funny, she gave us an opportunity to take pictures. Best guide we have had so far!!!!
Must do when in Rome
Edel_C, Nov 2022
Our guide Ambra was so knowledgeable and the tour was so engaging that it was with a heavy heart we had to say goodbye after 3hrs.
