Lia was a phenomenal tour guide. We gained so much knowledge about the rich Roman history. We highly recommend doing this tour. It was hot during June, and there was a lot of activity, so be prepared. Try to go in October or November for nicer weather.

Family tour of Collosium and Forum

Christian was a wonderful tour guide, he was extremely knowledgeable and taught our group many new things about the collosium and life on the Palentine Hill. It was an extremely hot day and he made things as comfortable as possible with frequent breaks in the shade and stops to cool off by the fountains.

Ariana was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the Coliseum, and was able to bring it to life for everyone. She also was gracious and checked on everyone and their needs due to the extreme heat.

Excellent tour. Our guide Rosi was fantastic. So informative and knowledgeable. Willing to make it special for our specific small group and took time explaining every area. So glad that we did the small group tour, because there is so much to see that we would have not missed if we tried to do on our own.

The history shared was much more than my last tour guide. I appreciated the small group of 8 and the access to areas others didn’t have.

We did this tour of Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum in June. It was so hot (try to go in a month when it’s cooler if you can), but it was completely worth it! Our tour guide Sarah was so friendly and knowledgeable. She taught us so much about the history of Rome! Plus she was thoughtful enough to stop in the shady spots when telling us about things and point out the drinking fountains to help with the heat. Definitely recommend this tour!

Great guide - so lovely. Great group of people. I feel like after this tour I now have a better understanding of Ancient Rome than I thought possible. I always thought it was dry and emperor after emperor, but our guide was able to draw a story of people, politics, beliefs, architecture, wars and art together in such a way that made it both accessible and memorable. The underground portion was also fantastic and beautiful. 10/10. *pro tip: if it will be a hot day, freeze your water bottle and bring sunscreen. Our guide kept us in the shade and there are water access points, but 103F is alot of heat, regardless.**

Our tour guide Irina was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. We took the tour of the Paletine Hill, Forum and underground experience in the Colleseum. The best tour for me (having done Florence and Rome) and a must-do experience

Daniele V was a fantastic guide—he had such interesting stories and told them with a sly sense of humor too, making the whole tour fun! He made sure we stayed hydrated and kept a reasonable pace in 100+ degree weather, but we didn’t miss a thing!

Excellent tour with Marcello. He's super knowledgeable, so make sure to ask him questions. Overall the tour is great but for us, it was a bit long, especially on a hot/sunny day. Would suggest an early morning or late evening start.

Worth the Money
Toby_T
, Jun 2022
This tour was amazing. What a magnificent structure. It is even more impressive when you are standing on the floor looking up where the crowd would be seated. We had no idea how the Colosseum functioned and the underground tour was insightful and eye opening. Crazy engineering and building techniques. We also did Palatine Hill and it too was amazing. Ali was our tour guide. She spoke good English and was easy to understand. She obviously cares greatly about her city and is proud of these buildings. She went to the trouble to make a binder with many photos and descriptions that she uses to help you understand various aspects of both locations as she explains them. We were very please with the tour content, locations and the Guide and would highly recommend.

We booked this tour last minute after our original tour could no longer accommodate a morning time. We were pleased with the guide, the size of the group and being able to see the colosseum early before it got too terribly hot.
