Two Years later and still my favorite tour
Sep 2018
Recently I sent some friends that were visiting Rome over to this tour as a must do. I know their travel style and did not hesitate to recommend. As you read all the other reviews, you should come away with these main points:

1. Location of starting point is not easy to find...plan ahead and arrive with ample "I might get lost" cushion.
2. Apps are not fancy or meant to be a meal. Plan accordingly.
3. You will NOT enter the Colosseum until after dark as the program states. If you do not want to walk and learn beforehand, pick something else.
4. The guide for inside the Colosseum will be different. There is not a terrible amount of time inside, but well worth no crowds and private factor.
5. ***Of all my private tours during all my travels, I have NEVER had such an energetic, engaging guide. I felt sorry that most in our group were like herding cats, distracted and basically rude. She was amazing and professional under these circumstances.

Hello, Edwin! We have taken into consideration your review and we will shortly change the description of the meeting point to make it easier for people to reach us. The guide inside is different because the Colosseum is handled by an official staff. We love, love your comment about the guide because we make it our aim to chose guides that love what they do and can therefore share their enthusiasm making it contagious! Thank you for choosing our tours!

Amazing
Having arrived in Rome a few days earlier, the waiting time in the blazing sun was too much for the Colosseum, so we booked this trip online, Renata our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her city, it was an experience not to miss, cooler but humid, no waiting, and we were able to go below the stage of the Colosseum. Highly recommended.

Mixed feelings
Our guide for the Forum area was Matteo and he was very knowledgeable, lively, entertaining and friendly. The Colosseum tour was not as good as we expected, as it was actually difficult to see a lot of it at night. The only benefits were it was much cooler temperatures and less crowded.

Glad to learn that the tour part of your experience was handled exceptionally. As for the lighting, it is unfortunately not under our administration but people usually enjoy the Colosseum by night very much due to the eerie atmosphere that adds great mystery. Thank you for taking the time to write this review!

Amazing tour
Nov 2017
This tour is well worth doing, you get to see the lower parts of the Colosseum with a guide and learn so much more than visiting during the day. Also, the Colosseum at night is even more picturesque than during the day.

Amazing Colosseum under the stars!
If you go to Rome the Colosseum is a must to see - I agree! But I could never imagine how unique and amazing would be to stand in the middle of the almost empty arena and stroll around the underground area at night. Our guide was so engaging and nice! We had a very good aperitivo with prosecco to start the tour with some extra energy :) We loved every single moment of it! Was one of the highlights of the trip. Totally recommended!

Unmissable!
Entering in the Colosseum which is almost empty and silent is a truly unique experience.
I loved everything about the tour; our guide Renata was super energic With a lot of history knowledge; the tour is good but the highlight is the Colosseum entrance in the night as it usually very crowded.
At meeting point there were also a delicious pizza and drinks which were really appreciated before starting the walk!
