A thoroughly enjoyable tour led by an informative and enthusiastic guide who made every effort to explain in a manner that was easy to understand. Would highly recommend

We liked this tour and I think we actually got upgraded. Seeing the lower levels of the Colosseum was fascinating. We saw every floor and the guide gave us quite a bit of detail. After a break we continued the tour with a walk around...More

As other reviewers have said, this tour is falsely advertised and a tourist trap. We signed up for the 3:30 tour and arrived 45 minutes early, as the instructions for the tour state on TripAdvisor. However, we were told that those instructions don't mean anything,...More

We apologise for you experience, but there are some issues that must be cleared up with this review. It is not true that the instructions do not mean anything, what is true is that we have sent a message to all clients that the Colosseum...More

Having been to Rome numerous times before, as well as to the Colosseum, we thought we would try something different and signed up for the underground tour. It was a MISTAKE. The cost of tour was absolutely a total waste of money. While the tour...More

The tour itself is fantastic. Going into the lower level was amazing. To see how the Colosseum was built, how they moved animals and people was incredible. How they constructed this building is amazing. The reason I rated the tour low was the experience of...More

I was very dissatisfied with this tour. First of all the entire tour lasted less than 40 minutes. Our guide Michaelo just walked us around and gave us little to no information about the roman forum itself. He was also not very clear so it...More

I knew little about the Colosseum before this and just loved experiencing it through the eyes of the guide. So many secrets, horrendous conditions and stories of engineering and our list for blood.

A great small group tour that is very informative and takes you all around the Colosseum, including the underground! Tour guide was excellent. She spoke very well and was great in making sure everyone got photos and was looked after Highly recommend it!

We loved it. Started at 8.30 pm ended at 11 pm and we loved every minute. Two excellent guides, one (an Englishman from London) outside for the first 45 minutes and the second (a Roman woman) inside for nearly two hours. Highly recommended

for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
