I definitely enjoy this Activity a lot. Our tour guide was Lorenzo who was very informative and super funny also. I think he did a great job and I would recommend him for other tours. The tour in general was very interesting and complete if you want to know the coliseum and the surrounding areas. I would take this tour again, Im very satisfied!

It was amazing! Our tour guide was interactive & super nice! Also they waited for us & called when they didn’t see! I didn’t realize it says to arrive 20min early but I was so thankful because I just knew we’d lost our money! Do that because it’s confusing at the colosseum with all that’s going on. If your coming from either direction of the colosseum make sure you’re on the far road so you can find the green kiosk to meet. It’s ALOT of walking so be prepared & bring a water bottle for all the Nasone!

This is a great tour for first-time visitors like us, it covers all the basic facts and historical context regarding the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum, so you know what you're actually looking at while there. It was essential for us first-timers to book a guided tour, and we weren't disappointed. We got plenty of information and the tour guide was knowledgeable, funny (albeit seemed a bit stressed sometimes) and answered all questions, and even offered to take pictures of everyone in key spots. However, one con is that the tour is VERY fast track, at some point in the Colosseum we basically had to chase our tour guide through the crowds because he was zooming by so fast, and subsequently missed some of what he said because our focus was on finding him instead of listening; we later went back to regular walking speed on the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum, thankfully. Overall, it was a good experience for us, we got exactly what we expected out of it and we recommend it!
