What people are saying about Colosseum

Great tour but felt like we missed lots of the coliseum

The coliseum tour was just a talk of the coliseum from one position on the 1st floor. It was an amazingly well spoken one and tons of facts plus the view of the stadium was great from that position but I wish there’d been maybe 1-2 more maybe near the centre or lower levels. Tour of palatine hill and the forums was great! Really awesome info about the beginnings of Rome both mythology wise and historically correct wise. Was filled with lots of knowledge and the views were fantastic, felt like it could have gone down into the forums for a stop but otherwise it was great. Both guides were fantastically knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well spoken. Would recommend this tour if you’re in a bit of a rush but otherwise I’d try to find a more in depth tour if you want to spend the entire day (which you definitely could) in this archeological area.

Fantastic Tour of the Colosseum with Mattes

My boyfriend and I were in Rome in August 2019 and opted to do a tour of the Colosseum as we felt we would get more from having a tour guide. The Rome: Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill Fast-Track Tour did not disappoint and our tour guide Mattes very knowledgable and gave a first class tour. He made frequents stops for participants to take pictures and also made sure we kept ourselves hydrated at the various public water fountains along the way. For anyone considering a tour of the Colosseum, this is the one to do.

Very enjoyable but ... more time for photos please.

We enjoyed this tour with Jan. However - one niggle. We didn’t realise that there was limited time on the arena floor. It would have been nice if he had pointed this out in advance. We were ushered out by Colloseum staff whilst he was still talking and missed the opportunity for some photos. Other than that it was enjoyable. The tour was cheaper than similarly advertised tours and yet, I can’t imagine how they would have been any better. Worth every euro.

Very nice. Mat was very informative, good pace

booked this tour couple of days before i visited. Even though it was early in day (9:15) it worked out well as when day progresses it gets hot. Mat our guide was very good, kept everyone engaged, covered all the places within 3 hrs time (time seemed less believe me) including Pantheon (which was not on list). Worth the price as you can see many attractions within short time frame including getting familiar with history behind the attractions.

Andrea was an amazing guide! He made learning a lot of fun!

We did the colosseum and Roman forum tour with Andrea. It was more than 3 hour but didn’t feel like it at all. I’m usually looking for 1hr tours as 3hrs sounds like it would be way too much, but it really wasn’t. I also read some guides can be lazy, but Andrea was amazing. He was funny, really knowledgeable, and really nice. Highly recommend this tour with him!
