What people are saying about Colosseum

Awesome tour of underground and upper levels.

After an initial delay by tour company and then being joined with a different group we got under way about 25mins late. The counter staff at top meeting point were fantastic and took us to a different meeting point for underground tours. Our guide at the coliseum Chiara was fantastic. Learnt so much, she was an archeologist and very informative. Got to see the upper sections which we weren’t expecting which was awesome. Underground def worth visiting. We had a different guide for the forum and palatine hill. More of a story teller. Potentially not the style of tour that we like. Only real negative was The different prices charged to people for same tour - we found out we’d paid quite a bit more than another Aussie couple on the tour who hadn’t Prebooked.

Good, but a large group and missed the Palantine.

The tour guide was knowledgeable, but the group was 30 people and she did not try to ensure the entire group was able to see materials or was engaged, often facing the other direction from half the group for twenty minutes of talking and showing pictures. We listened to her for at least 50 minutes before even going through into the colloseum and she completely missed the Palantine Hill in her tour. OK tour, but would have been better with a smaller group and a tour guide with better English.

Informative and entertaining with a personal touch.

We added the guided option at the last minute when visiting the Colosseum and were very pleased to chosen to do so. We gained a much more informative insight about the building, it's construction and it's place in history from a knowledgeable entertaining guide who clearly enjoyed his work. He took time to answer questions, ensure all were catered for and his repeated reference to the group as 'family' added àn air of amusement.

Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

For “Skip the Line Tickets”, we spent more time outside the Colosseum in line ups waiting to get in than we spent inside. We had to be at our designated meeting place at 09:25 for 09:40 entry into Colosseum. We did not get inside until 10:45, long enough to take a few pictures and leave as we had to meet our driver at 11:15 in order to get to the Vatican at our designated time.

Would definitely recommend to avoid crowds

We loved this tour! It was in 2 parts, the first part shows you things outside the Colosseum, like the Roman Forum, and the second part was the Colosseum. Both guides were great and really informative. The only thing I didn’t think through was that the pictures I took weren't great since it was dark out. However, I would do it again to avoid the normal crowds during the day.
