Fun/Informative Tour

Excellent tour with Marcello. He's super knowledgeable, so make sure to ask him questions. Overall the tour is great but for us, it was a bit long, especially on a hot/sunny day. Would suggest an early morning or late evening start.

Worth the Money

This tour was amazing. What a magnificent structure. It is even more impressive when you are standing on the floor looking up where the crowd would be seated. We had no idea how the Colosseum functioned and the underground tour was insightful and eye opening. Crazy engineering and building techniques. We also did Palatine Hill and it too was amazing. Ali was our tour guide. She spoke good English and was easy to understand. She obviously cares greatly about her city and is proud of these buildings. She went to the trouble to make a binder with many photos and descriptions that she uses to help you understand various aspects of both locations as she explains them. We were very please with the tour content, locations and the Guide and would highly recommend.

The Underground Tour is worth it!

We booked this tour last minute after our original tour could no longer accommodate a morning time. We were pleased with the guide, the size of the group and being able to see the colosseum early before it got too terribly hot.

The tour itself was great. It covered Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. We were lucky in that it wasn’t too busy so we got to take our time and had plenty of space. The only drawback was I couldn’t understand our guide. Her English was very difficult to understand and I missed a lot of what she said, which is unfortunate because this was the main reason I wanted to visit Rome. So that was disappointing but otherwise it was a good tour.

Giata out tour guide was so friendly and informative! She knew so much about the Colosseum and really taught me a lot. She answered all our questions and was very patient. Loved the tour! It was a hot day but we all made the best of it. Bring a hat and empty water bottle to refill throughout the tour. And good comfy shoes the stairs are steep and the floor is not even.

Donna our guide was wonderful. There with my Dad who is 74 years old, we were in a group of 8. Donna our guide was wonderful and really brought Ancient Rome to life for us all, with her unlimited knowledge and her file of pictures for how parts we saw would have looked in their day. She was professional, witty and patient throughout. The staff at the colosseum did hold us up, but that was beyond Donnas control and she handled it brilliantly. Fab trip and highly recommended.

This was my second tour of the Colosseum and our tour guide Lia Caso from Touriks made me believe it was my first! I learned so much on her tour and enjoyed the time with her. My 12 year old son was engaged and excited the entire 3 hours ONLY bc Lia made it so fascinating to listen to. I will be requesting her in the future as a tour guide!!!

Special access, expert guidance.

Danielle V was an excellent guide offering insights on history, culture, and the many layers of structure in the area of the Colosseum. We had special access to newly opened areas and he took care of all arrangements while walking us from shaded area to the next bit of shade. It was a hot day, but he kept us in as much shade as possible and pointed out the fountains where we could refill our water bottles. So much history in one small area is overwhelming, but also awe inspiring.

Her knowledge of historical facts was outstanding and gave a clear insight to the thinking process of the Romans. Their treatment of animals and property continues to exist today.
