It was great to skip the line at the coliseum and to get to stand at the arena where less people were but that was the only good part of this tour. When I booked the tickets it informed me that once we were in the colosseum we would get tickets to allow us to explore the Roman

Response from IWURome, Public Relations Manager at Private Skip the Line Colosseum and Ancient Rome Tour
Responded 26 May 2018
Hello Kirsten, thank for your feedback. We regret to learn that you found the service disappointing. As you yourself acknowledge the service you booked was skipe the line entrance to the Colosseum with access to arena floor and assistance for entry procedure and orientation provided by personnel whose job description does not extend to guiding by Italian law. Given your feedback it appears that the service that would have suited you best would, in actual fact, have been the guided tour. Indeed such option was still available at the time you made your reservation. In all likelihood you may have then extended your budget to the service you actually desired.

An exceptional tour with our guide Brian. His knowledge was exceptional. He took us on a journey through Ancient Rome and explained what life was like at that time. I would fully recommend this tour, and it was well worth the money Thank you once again Brian.
