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!

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.

Definitely worth getting tickets beforehand.

I would definitely recommend purchasing tickets online, skip the line is the way to go as the queue without is very long. They are very strict on entrance times so don't turn up too early, 10 mins before is all they will allow - and the Colosseum was definitely worth a visit. For Roman Forum/Palatine Hill you have to queue, no skip the line unfortunately, but the queue seemed to move fairly quickly.

Loved the colosseum. Did NOT love the endless harrassment outside.

This visit would have been so much better if we hadn't been harassed outside by people offering to sell us tickets, be our guides, etc. Also, we tried to go into the Forum the next day as we ran out of time. You CANNOT get into the Forum for free, no matter what Trip Advisor tells you! If we'd known this we would have made the effort to go there the same day as the Colosseum and Palatine Hill.

Great method to skip The line and get in quickly.

The line and get in quickly. Tickets arrived promptly with clear instructions. There was no guy but that didn’t matter because the ticket said clearly how we got in. The price was great and we were able to get in 30 minutes either side of the ticket so we arrived early and were able to go straight in. Would book again.
