We liked the Tour, but the meeting location is VERY confusing because there are so many other tours meeting at the same location as well as an upstairs and a downstairs of the metro station. Plus our guide was 30 minutes late and I had to email, text and call to get that information.

We had our guided tour 8/23-22. We were in good time to our guide and the meeting place. It was a little unclear exactly where we were supposed to meet (Outside the Colosseum Metro station, at a green kiosk) and that's where all the guided tours met. But we found our guide who was on time and everything went well. We had a group of 8 people and our guide Benji took us and started telling us about the Colosseum and its history on the outside. He was very nice and funny. We went straight through the queues and entered the arena floor. Then we went upstairs and the balconies. Very good luck!

We weren't sure if a guide was really worth the extra cost vs just walking and reading on our own but "skip line" in the summer heat of 2022 coupled with the informative tour that can tell you details they don't have on the place cards was worth it. If it doesn't break you budget go for it otherwise at least get a "skip the line" package without the guide.
