Meeting point found fairly easily and uncomplicated; Our tour guide (Georgio) was very well organized and prepared, and also had a competent answer to all possible questions. There are extensive history lessons and lots of interesting facts. It is quite a walk. The toilet facilities in and around the Colosseum are very modest compared to the huge number of visitors. At the latest when I saw the long line in front of the building, I was aware of how positive it was to have booked such a tour in advance without having to queue

The overall experience was really enjoyable and pretty easy to navigate. I did misread the tour I selected and thought I was only doing the colosseum tour, but was really surprised when he mentioned two other areas we would be visiting. The check in process was simple and everybody spoke great English, the tour people were able to get the group engaged with each other to make it a friendly experience. We went in the afternoon and Rome is very very hot, I would’ve probably told past me to do a morning tour.

Great tour but not in 2 hours but only 1,5

Clear meeting point and easy to find! The colosseum was absolutely amazing to see, and a skip the line tour is a must. Our guide was very good only the time of the tour was not correct. The 1,5h tour in the place of 2h but definitely worth the price just to do that!
