What people are saying about Colosseum

Perfect, highly recommend Jan our tour guide.

We had the most fantastic time on Jan’s tour around Palantine Hill, the Forum and the Colosseum. Jan was so informative, interesting, knowledgable and considerate. It was an extremely hot day and he ensured that we moved from shady spot to shady spot all without compromising the tour. He offered alternatives for those who couldn’t manage the walk/heat and ensured that everyone was ok throughout. His knowledge of Roman history and culture was incredible and he happily answered questions, welcoming discussion throughout the tour. We learnt so much and could clearly see Jan’s genuine passion and enthusiasm for his work. There were multiple stops for filling up water throughout the tour and opportunity for toilet breaks if need be. And no queuing time at all! The tour gave a fantastic over view of Ancient Rome but also provided amazing details of the sights we were seeing and indications of what life in Ancient Rome really would’ve been like. Highly recommend Jan and this tour, 10/10!

Jan was the perfect tour guide: knowledgeable, friendly and funny.

The guided tour I took was one of the best I've been on as Jan was very knowledgeable, constantly providing us with relevant and interesting details of what we were seeing. He was also very friendly and often answered questions from the all the tourists. Lastly, he showed a sense of humour that made the tour more relatable and down to earth. I would highly recommend this tour guide. The booking was also easy and it was no problem finding where the tour began. Overall, an excellent experience and well worth the money.

Skip the line is good, but very short tour

Guide was knowledgeable but didn’t talk for very long. Showed us a few things then left us on our own for 20 minutes and gave wrong directions to exit to meet second half of the tour. We did a tour a few years ago which was much more informative on coliseum. Guide for Palatine hill and forum -Alexander- was very good. But again, the tour itself was more on Palatine hill than forum (we never even entered the forum).

Very interesting tour, strange kind of English

First part of the tour, outside the Colosseum, was very interesting, hosted by a good & enthusiastic guide. Inside the Colosseum - not too crowded, which was great - we got another guide, who was much less enthusiastic & spoke a terrible kind of English - at times really to follow even. The movie (Dream of the Gladiator) did not add much value. Why not use Virtual Reality much more, like in the Domus Aurea?

Colosseum - Beautiful. Tour Guide - Talks Way God Damn Too Much.

He takes you around the colosseum talking about the history, shows you the arena, takes your to the 2nd tier and give you access into the roman forum & palatine hill. He does talk quite alot and moves around the colosseum alot so you need to be quick with your pictures. By the way, they do let you take bags. Overall it was a great experience seeing different parts of the colosseum.
