    Beautiful, haunting and quiet. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The nighttime view was awesome. Lots of walking.

    My college aged kids loved it.

    Our tour began with pizza and prosecco at the check in point. We then took a walking tour of the Forum area. You don't actually go into the ruins, but walk around on the street level above them. The tour was very informative, as they take you through the history of the area. The Colosseum at night is beautiful and quiet. Much different from the daytime crowds. I only wish there was more lighting on the floor of the arena so it could be seen better. We went into the underground area as well, which was very interesting to see. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it for people who would like to avoid the crowds. The tour guide was wonderful!

    The forum part of the tour was informational but only included views from the main road, other tours were down in the forum itself which we expected from the description of what was included. The Colosseum part of the tour was as expected.

    Tickets and website stated 7:30 start. When we arrived at 7:15 per instructions, they said no, 830...with no reason. Well it finally started at 9:00. We walked around for an hour, not really seeing anything/didn't enter any areas. Then at 10 we went to the colosseum. Which was interesting. Mateo was our first guide, and was wonderful! Unfortunately, we had a different guide at the colosseum who wasn't wonderful!

    I am very disappointed, I thought we were going to be able to see the Colosseum first. We couldn't even see hardly anything by the time we got there. Not what I expected.

    I highly recommend this tour. It was a great way to end our first full day, which was spent walking for 10 hours... so what was 3 more?! Just be aware that you will spend 2 hours walking around the area near the Colosseum, which was actually awesome since we had seen some of those places earlier in the day, but without a guide. The hour in the Colosseum was good, too. Probably all you need. Our second guide who took us around there wasn't as good as our first guide. So, not complaints, but I do wish we had started closer to on time, rather than a half hour late. Ah Italy!

    It poured down rain a couple hours before we started our tour, which delayed the tour. However, the tour was great and both tour guides were excellent. It is definitely a unique experience to see the Colosseum for the first time at night. We loved the tour.

    I highly recommend this tour, especially in the summer when the days are so hot! This was our second time doing this tour. I really enjoyed the appetizers and wine beforehand and loved our very enthusiastic and energetic tour guide, Fi! Being able to go into the Colosseum after dark, when it is closed to the public, is pretty magical!!

    I went on this tour with my parents, brother and my husband last night. It was amazing. At the meeting point you're welcomed with a table with pizza, chips, olives and booze. From there our tour guide introduced herself and started the tour. I forgot her name but she was fantastic. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic. I actually wish she was our tour guide for every other tour I've taken. I'm sad she only gave us a tour of the first part which was of ancient Rome. She then handed us over to a 2nd tour guide for the Collosseum. It was about 10pm at this point so no crowds and no sun! This was perfect as it was about 95 degrees earlier in the day. We were taken inside to see the collosseum on 3 different levels. It was spectacular. I highly reccomend this night your as you avoid the crowds and the heat if you're visiting in the summer. Their tour guides are very knowledgable and friendly.

    This was a fantastic night tour. Before going to the Colosseum we had prosecco, pizza and nibbles. Then the most fantastic tour guide, Fi surprisingly from Liverpool, took us on the most wonderful walk with a brief history of ancient Rome. Her knowledge,enthusiasm and passion was a highlight. Then we were handed over to the Colosseum tour guide who took us through parts you can't normally get to on a normal ticket. A fascinating night, very enjoyable and glad we booked it.
