    We paid $341 for 2 people VIP when the actual amount was €154 for 2 people(we saw this on the tickets given to us). Nothing VIP about it. We did get to walk the little space underground and the 3rd tier which would have cost just €154. Our guide was good BUT we were quite upset when we realized that we were ripped off!

  • 03-Feb-2020

    This was a 3rd party meet and hand off. The guy could not get rid of us fast enough. Literally met us across from the colosseum walked us to the group check in gate and left. There was no explanation of the ruins which was my main goal. The company was “Tours of Rome”. I paid for VIP small group.

    This tour is full of information and historical facts. The 2 complaints are: (1) the meeting place was not specific enough. It's at the bottom entrance/exit to the Metro stop, not at the fountain. (2) it wasn't made clear that we had to go back to the original meeting place after the Colosseum tour, to hook up with the guide for the Forum tour. Aside from these issues, the tour was fantastic. The underground tour is fascinating! Valentina, the Colosseum tour guide, explained everything in detail and gave us plenty of time. Lorenzo, the Forum tour guide, was a wealth of information and history. While there were around 20 people for the Colosseum part, there were just 4 of us for the Forum tour. We could have spent another hour with Lorenzo.

    The tour time was changed and emailed to us after we had left Australia with no email to contact. Very poor rating on organisational skills and we did not even get to go on the tour even though we had paid for this.

  • 14-Nov-2019

    This really wasn't a small group ... very confusing with different guides and then breaking into groups. Our guide outside was okay but the Colosseum tour guide was very good. We enjoyed the Colosseum itself.

  • 11-Nov-2019

    I really liked our guide. He gave us a lot of information and also the archeologist. Some pretty amazing facts. my only issue was the rescheduling of our tour prior to the date, by Viator and then substituting part of the tour. Fortunately we purchased the other part (palatine hill and roman forum) from another company as we would not have been able to use the tickets given to us due to rain

  • 31-Oct-2019

    Company was good to deal with, both guides very friendly and helpful. Got to see all levels of Colosseum from underground to top level with knowledgeable Archeologist as guide. Saw areas with only our small group, away from the crowds. Great, peaceful view from from the top. Take time after tour to see the main museum area. Afternoon tour ended too late to get into Forum and Palatine Hill in same day. If you can start in the morning, do, or if tour starts in afternoon get your ticket ahead of time which will let you see Forum before the tour.

    While we were unable to actually take part in this tour due to overbooking ourselves with other activities, the local tour group very helpfully worked with us to adjust our timing and allowed us to use our reservation as a self-guided tour of the Colosseum. Using what essentially became a Skip The Line service instead, we thorougly enjoyed being in the Colosseum and witnessing the wondrous history on the place. We look forward to coing back to Rome and taking part in the underground tour next time. We highly recommend this service.

    Best way to tour the colosseum. Avoided the long lines and had a great experience with a knowledgeable archeologist as a guide. Went to areas you normally do not get to see.

  • 22-Oct-2019

    Our guide Nedo was very informative and was engaged with the group. He clearly was passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter. Also, he spoke understandable English.

    This is an expensive tour, but you buy pass all the lines and the time saved bypassing the lines (there were 27,000 people trying to get in that day) was well worth the price.

    I would have given 5 stars but I requested and was scheduled for the first morning tour, and then was confirmed on a later tour which we almost could not make.
