Overview

What to do in Rome? One of the main attractions of The eternal city, if not of the world, is definitely the Coliseum. If you are in Rome, do not miss visiting it. Its imposing shape will amaze you by just walking by. Our guided tour will amaze you even more by explaining you its fascinating technique and story. We will tell you more than you can read in (online) guidebooks. Our guides know stories and secrets of gladiators and emperors. Knowing every corner of the Coliseum and Roman forum, your visit to The eternal city will be something special. With us you can use your time in Rome effectively.
By 2018, over 7.5 million people from all over the world visited the Coliseum. That is an absolute record. This number makes it obvious that one can find crowds of people in front of the Coliseum waiting for tickets or in security lines. If you do a tour with us, you do not care about that. You dont have to worry about the ticket for the Coliseum and will skip the line.

    There tend to be two types of good reviews. Ones where things go right, and then others when things go wrong. I wish that I could talk about how knowledgeable and funny our tour guide was. Unfortunately I can't do that. Sondheim would have been proud of the farce that we encountered trying to get to the meeting place for the tour (short story), Uber in Rome is not as reliable as many Americans may assume). Once we knew that timing was going to be tight, we called the tour company and were told not to worry, they would contact the tour operator. After the final 2 block sprint down a 1 way street to try to make it to our tour (a few minutes late for the start of the tour at this point) we discovered that they had already left.

    The folks in the office offered to try to reschedule for us for a different day, which honestly they had no obligation to do. Since that wouldn't work for us, they contacted other tour companies to try to just get us the tickets to skip the line. After about 20 minutes where we got to sit in an air conditioned waiting room, they had a ticket for us to enter, and sent us off with bottles of water. Under the circumstances, they definitely did everything that they could do to ensure that we had the best experience possible.

    We had a wonderful time exploring the Colosseum and Forum. Our guide was very informative and made the experience very memorable.

    Francesco is one of the best tour guides we met, unfortunately, he was working for an operator that may have over or under booked a tour (VIPINITALY). We arrived as scheduled 1:30PM but got pushed to 3:30PM as the tour operator making deals with their partners to get us in. We requested English but initially got grouped with Spanish until we got matched with Francesco.... bad planning for the operator. The day was saved by a wonderful guide in Francesco.

    We booked this tour based on several considerations - the timing, the content, size of group, headsets. We were disappointed on all counts. When we first arrived at the office, we were told our entry time had been pushed back by the Colosseum. We were understanding as they had no control. But chaos ensued from there. We were told to come back in 1/2 hour, we did and then waited another 1/2 hour. We were "escorted" to the line-up area by an employee who didn't seem to care to explain what was happening or whether he lost us in the crowd. After another long wait we were introduced to a tour guide and found that our group had at least 20 people in it (not the 15 max promised). We spent most of the next hour in line (skip the line? NO). The guide used this time to introduce us to the Colosseum we were about to see. By the time we got inside, she led us to a spot to talk and then left us after 10 minutes. That was the whole "tour." There was no tour of the Colosseum. She told us that the second part of the tour (Forum) would start in over an hour! At this point our headsets were taken away. So, we could guide ourselves around the Colosseum during that time as she was done. We met our guide for the Forum over an hour and a half later and discovered that groups had been merged and we were now in a group of 50 people! With no headsets it was nearly impossible to hear our guide. What we heard was good but it was very difficult to keep up with him. We felt rushed to and through the Forum. In all, the tour that was supposed to take 3 hours took more than 5 hours but only about an hour of that was guided, most of it was waiting around.

    It almost seemed like they threw this together at the last minute. We got to the meeting place and the man told us to wait. He grabbed someone else and we were told to follow him to the Colosseum. Not many words or any greetings, just a hand-off.Once there, another hand-off. Our guide for the colosseum was new and very friendly, but a little shaky with her English. After that portion was over, there seemed to be confusion, and we had to wait for another guide, who was waiting for another group to lump us in with. He informed me that he didn’t even work for this company, they just called him in. We were told we weren’t going in to the Forum, just going to look at it from Paletine Hill, which we did. (See name of tour above) So a brief talk and we were done. No Forum, which was why I took this tour to begin with. The guides were okay, So very disappointed with what seemed like a bait and switch.

    I paid for a colosseum and Roman forum tour. But that is not what I received. At the end of the colosseum tour the guide said it was over and there was no other tour. This is not what I paid for and it was advertised as 2 tours. I am very dissatisfied and will never use this website again.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Our tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this group and use for ourselves in the future.

    Our guide Santos explained everything very well and allowed time for pictures! We skipped the long lines and he made sure to explain under the nice shade! Very hot in September. He also allowed bathroom breaks!

  • 11-Jul-2018

    The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very nice person.
    Two concerns:
    We booked this particular tour because it offered headsets. The tour operator said they didn't have them, even if the confirmation says : headsets.
    In our confirmation we saw that the tour was to last 3 hours. It took 2;20 hours. Which parts we didn't see?

    Our tour guide was so knowledgable about the ruins and had such a big personality. Thanks, Mama!
