Traveler Tips

Fantastic value, really enjoyable and informative tours, 2h in total plus the ability to continue exploring the forum at your own pace, does not include the tunnels but very interesting nonetheless even for non-history buffs

Fantastic tour and guide
Michael_A, Feb 2023
We had a great and interesting guide called Radu. He was very knowledgeable and made us discover the Colosseum with great enthusiasm! We loved our tour and would recommend highly to anyone.

My tour guide, Alessandro, was absolutely fantastic! I went January 14th. Very knowledgeable about the area and even brought a couple articles/books to illustrate things that he was talking about. Also a great sense of humor, and gave some great restaurant recommendations to us! Went at a good pace and covered everything I wanted to see. Would absolutely reccomend.
Worth the money had a great time

+ Small flexible group of 24 people + extensive historical information + knowledgeable guide + efficient breaks
Very fun and educating exploration of history
Dustin_D, Dec 2022
Our tour was led by Radu and he did a phenomenal job. Him relating so much context and history to us really improved seeing the Colloseum and the Forum, and he kept it engaging and fun. Would highly recommend having him as a guide to anyone.
Your de Colesseum

We had a great experience...
Alexis_M, Dec 2022
We had a great experience with Lorenzo as our guide! I learned a lot of interesting facts and really had the history brought to life. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum - hopefully you get Lorenzo as your guide!
Donna_B, Nov 2022
Our guide was amazing and had so much patience with everyone. She was very knowledgeable and very interesting. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take this tour. Our tour was on a Sunday and was extremely busy and she did a great job herding our group which wasn't always easy.
Dawn_G, Nov 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was all that I expected from my booking. The best part was the audio set as it was crowded you could hear your tour guide clearly.
Great historical perspective
Denise_D, Nov 2022
Great tour! Got a great understanding how the various parts of Coliseum were used. Also enjoyed touring the other parts of the property. Our tour guide provided many interesting insights into life bac in the day.
Interesting and recommended
Shira_G, Nov 2022
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional, We've seen and learned a lot. I have been to the colosseum before without a guide and it made a great difference.
Donna_W, Nov 2022
Lorenzo was terrific! He is very knowledgeable about ancient Roman history and was happy to answer questions we had! I highly recommend his tour …we were very happy to have him as our guide!
Best tour so far! It’s because our guide she was very educated! Awesome tour guide!
Carrie_D, Nov 2022
We were on a small group tour - 10max. I suggest this. We were very lucky as our tour guide Alexandra was a very educated archaeologists and tour guide from Rome. She was very knowledgeable and you learn so much more than if you tried to do this on your own. It can be very confusing and chaotic trying to navigate through the Colosseum palatine hill and especially the Roman forum I highly recommend this tour and I highly recommend Alexandra.

Absolutely excellent experience with a knowledgable and pleasant tour guide. We really enjoyed this tour and came away with a good knowledge of the key sites.
Marc_A, Oct 2022
The City Walkers Tours were very friendly and helpful. They almost escorted us to the entrance of Forum. Moreover, we had not understood that with the same ticket for Colosseum we also had access to the Forum. Very nice experience.
Great tour- but a little too long!
Christine_M, Oct 2022
Our guide Ivano was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining! The only comment we would make is that the tour was too long for us. We feel this could have been split into two parts. This was not Ivano’s fault! We loved him!
Great tour with so much...
Amy_G, Oct 2022
Great tour with so much historical information from the guide. It was in depth and definitely worth the money.
Catherine_P, Oct 2022
Andre was very helpful and was easy to find upon arrival to the meeting spot. Jason, our tour, guide was fun and gave us a great experience. He also gave us pointers on Rome and how to get to our next destination!
Poor, no insights and poor value for money
Bcomerford9, Oct 2022
There were none. The whole thing was poorly organised. There were no insights of any significance to be gleaned
Maurice_B, Oct 2022
Locating them was a bit of a hassle, but once we did, everything else was easy. I would recommend this to anybody that doesn’t want a guided tour.
