    My daughter and I went on this tour and Frederica was our guide. She was marvelous-had a Masters in Architecture and gave us a true “picture” of the building AND the “time” of these bloody games. She used her iPad to illustrate what Rome looked like, Nero’s villa, family life, clothing...even the modes of male/female relationships. I thought the building was a little too dark, missed some of the floor structures, but that wasn’t Viator or Frederica’s fault! Doing this tour at night with only 25 people REALLY cut down on public nuisance, noise, heat, loud children, etc. fantastic!!!

    Start off with prosecco then walk to the Colosseum around the corner. One guide spends an hour outside the building, educating all about the Forum and surrounding area, as well as how the Colosseum was built. Then you're handed off to a second guide who takes you inside the depths of the Colosseum at night. Its lit (not very well, but the trade off in ambiance means you have to tread carefully). Bring comfortable shoes - stairs are pitched and slippery. Pay attention and hold on to the rails. Do that and you will enjoy this gem of a tour!

    The tour was outstanding! Our guide's knowledge and communication of the chronology of the Colosseum and its significant events was excellent. The film was also a nice touch. Thank you!

    Tour started 45 mins late and we had kids so booked the time for reason. The tour was 2 parts and each was good but much of the info was duplicate so would have been better to have different info discussed and make it more interesting/engaging

    The tour does not start at 7pm. You are served snacks and drinks for 20 mins., then walked to a park above the Metro entrance where the group sits for 55 mins. listening to the same information and same photos/illustrations that the professional tour guide inside the Colosseum uses. Our 'half' of the tour did not enter the Colosseum until 8:20pm; the other half not until 8:30 pm. Wasted 1 hour 20 mins and paid twice what we could have paid, using a different company. Viator told me it was a two hour tour from 7-9 pm. Three adults and one child at more than $400.00 was not just a waste of time, it also was a waste of money. You can find better quality tours that actually enter the Colosseum at the time stated and don't use the same tour information/illustrations as the professional Colosseum guides. We had so looked forward to this tour and all of us were disappointed at how this tour was described. Once inside, you get the same tour guides - professional Colosseum staff -the other group tour companies.

    Amazing tour of the colosseum at night with an experienced and knowledgable guide. Best part of the tour is that you get to skip all of the tourist at night and you feel like you have the whole colosseum to yourself.

    This was meant to be a 40 minute tour outside the colosseum followed by a tour inside. Our tour was delayed, initially first being told our guide was sick. We were shown around the outside of the colosseum with another Tour group, and just told to wait around for our entrance time into the colosseum. I had booked an 8pm tour which and was meant to be inside by 9pm. Instead it was nearly 9:35 before we got in, by which point it was too dark to take any photos. We were put onto an official tour for the inside of the colosseum and found out that others had just paid €24 from the official website. This was €70 more to get a cheap glass of Prosecco and a 5 minute tour outside the colosseum. It was so badly organized and tbh feels like a scam. The operator probably purchased the €24 ticket from the colosseum and wacked on an extortionate amount and dressed it up with a glass of proscecco. When I complained to - they didn’t do anything about it. I have never felt so scammed in my life! Do not fall for this!

    Really enjoyed this tour. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate tour guides.Small numbers, and well spread out so that you get to really experience the Collesum in the cool and beauty of the twilight.
    Would highly recommend.

    While the e-mails from the tour operator indicated that you were to appear 15 minutes before the start of the tour at 9 p.m., when we checked in at this time, the staff member said we were late by 45 minutes. He indicated we were to be there an hour before. Our exchange with him was very poor. We were then shuffled between 3 different tour guides. Great content, poor tour management.
