Horrible guide. Low energy and can’t understand simple questions. Worst meeting point description. Disproportionate time allocated to Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Not enough time at the Colosseum.

Tour with Giuseppe
Ruvimbo_C
, Jun 2022
We went on the tour with our guide Giuseppe who was so knowledgeable and we don’t think the tour without him. He first took us up the Pastine hill, explained for orgins of Rome, then down to the forum then over to the Colosseum last. He really made our experience.

The tour guide made it very known that he did not want to do a tour he was more worried about the heat and the dust gave very little information was overall horrible and could not speak real good English I mean his English was fine but the accent was so heavy I didn’t understand half of what he said he seem to have an attitude the whole time and just wanted to rush through it I feel like we missed so much very disappointed

Our guide made a couple of racist comments which bruised the experience for us. Better off buying a skip the line pass and renting a self guided tour.

DO NOT book your ticket through Viator for the colosseum - they are to hard to find at meeting point and when you try and get in touch with them no one answers!!! We missed our tour by finding them 5mins late and they said to bad!!! Will never book anything with them again.. Book through “Get your guide” they have been awesome!

Need full refunds!

The only reason I booked this tour for 3 persons was so we could avoid the extremely long line to get into the coliseum. The tour started with the forum and painting Hill, which was fine but those two things took almost 3 hours. By the time we finally got to the coliseum, there was a problem with the body count so the group was not allowed in until the guide got crown tours to fix it. But we and several other people in the group had to skip it in order to see the rest of rome. I feel we were scammed and deserve a full refund. I expect to discuss that with my bank when we get home if I haven't heard a response from you offering me said refund.

Beautiful place, confusing tour guide
Katie_A

The Colosseum and Palatine Hills was amazing to experience. It is a must see!! Our tour guide was very tough to follow. She told the story by sharing random facts with us and we after we left we googled to fill in the many gaps of the history. She also walked very quickly with her flag and didn’t pay attention as to whether anyone was behind her or not. I think if I had to do it again, I’d have toured it on our own.

Excellent tour but hard to follow the guide’s English
Max_B
, Jun 2022
The tour was amazing! Unfortunately our guide was very hard to understand her English. Is was a pity, because Teresa showed that she knew a lot about the history of the Romans & their stories, but what very hard to follow up due to language barrier 😕

Meeting point

Good and informative guidance by Giulio. Would not have been the same experience without a guide. A little difficult to find the meeting point, which is based on top of Metro terminal Colloseo. By help from the other guide companies we found the meeting point...thanks.

Sylvia was a great guide and was very knowledgeable. She was also very cognizant of how everyone in the group was doing - stopping for water, breaks and adjusting for mobility issues. This a comprehensive tour so come prepared. Bring a water bottle and you can refill at various points. Hat and sunscreen a must.

Much better tour experience than the one we had at the Vatican. Although this one is more rushed. Not even given time to use the toilet. It was not the peak season yet and there were so many people. Did not make it to the top of the Roman Forum. There's probably better tours around that this one.

Separated from Tour
George_S
, May 2022
I became separated from the group after descending the stairs in the colosseum and was not told by radio where to meet them. My wife told the guide that I wasn't with the group, but I received no instructions where to meet them in the Colosseum. The guide should have made certain that everyone was present once we descended the stairs. I was not able to complete the tour since they did not wait to connect me.

Missed Connections, No Tour for Me.
Xania_W
, May 2022
I never got to go on the tour. Went to the meeting point, never connected with the tour leader, walked around looking for them for a half hour, even tried to see if I could connect with them as they went in the gates—no luck. I had to buy another entry ticket for another day and I won’t get the benefit of the tour guide. Left sad and disappointed. Maybe the tour leader could have tried calling or texting to connect with me instead of just leaving me in the Roman dust? :(

The guide was so obviously passionate about the information he was sharing and the way he conveyed the history in a way that brought us back into what it must have been like made this an incredible experience for us.
