  • Same as other reviews. We arrived at the time provided by Viator, but there was no one there with any sign. Another local guide told us that Viator provided the wrong time and that our group was a half hour later. OK... Then, 30 minutes later, there was a guy wandering around without a sign gathering a group. After we asked him, he told us to join his group. IF, in fact, that was the right guy, he led us into the Forum with 30 - 40 other people and gave an introductory talk. Then, it was over - we were on our own to explore. This is just a poorly managed Skip the Line - it is NOT a tour. Viator should truly stop selling this because it makes them look bad.

  • We never saw the guide. We were there 45 minutes in advance, at the precise spot that was mentionned, and we asked around, but we never took the tour, meaning, we paid for 3 people and never even got to see it. The rating for this tour was not good when we purchased, but we thought we'd give it a try anywat - BAD MOVE! DO NOT RECOMMEND AT ALL!!!!

  • Sorry to say but this tour was a disappointment. We were expecting a guided tour in Roman Forum and Palatine Hill: an expert to tell you what's what in that area. Instead we found ourselves in the middle of a crowd of 30-40 persons and with a tour guide who was chitchatting this and that about Roman history. She pointed out a few ruins though but due to the size of the group it was difficult to hear anything. In the end of the tour she said that if we want to visit the Palatine Hill we will have to do it by ourselves It's your problem because she had hay fever and couldn't come up to the hill. Oh no - this is not something you want to pay for.
