The tour was split into two halves, first we walked around Palatine Hill & the Roman Forum, I LOVED it, our guide was so engaging and he knew his stuff, he mixed fact with legend/mythology and it was just brilliant, I hadn't been expecting to enjoy it so much. An hour and 45 minutes later we walked over to the colosseum...WOW, the history behind the colosseum is amazing, it's just such a shame, but a necessity, that over the years we have had to do so much to work to the building in order to keep it standing. I just don't have much of an imagination so would have liked to have seen the building without all the acrow props here and there....but I do understand that the works they have done and will do in the future is a necessity. We had a different tour guide for the colosseum and, although informative, she wasn't as engaging as the first tour guide we had, but she had a lot of people to deal with and a lot of ground to cover, and it wasn't even peak season. Overall a great experience.
Great tour with an archaeologist under the colosseum and around the colosseum. If you book underground only colosseum archaeologists can show take you there (what we got told on the day which was a nice touch) with audio so we could hear everything he said. Was in a small group and well worth the money, no hassle no waiting in line. Arena access great pictures can be taken here and underground. We also got access after to meet a guide after colosseum to take show us to Forum and Palatine hill which was a nice bonus.
This your was great value for money, our tour Nicholas was extremely knowledgeable. Make sure you allow 3 hours for the tour as this is how long it actually takes not 2 hour as displayed. This includes a tour of the Roman forum, which is just as interesting and there are some amazing views for pictures. Make sure you take a drink with you as dont get a break. Overall brilliant value for money!
Excellent instructions how to get to the meeting point and where the meeting point was. The guide was fully knowledgable and passionate about the colosseum and made the tour interesting. Special bonus the tour of the Palatine Hill. After the tour we spent another two hours exploring the artefacts in the area.
Wow absolutely fabulous, very interesting and well organised. Everything went ahead just as planned, easy online booking, met by the guide ( very friendly) and the jump the line option was great - we didn’t have to wait long at all to get in, which is often the case with all the big attractions.
