Bits of Tour

I was worried to book a good tour as there are such a huge number of tour operators. I didn't know which to go with. We were outside Colosseum and got the last minute deal for the last slot from this website. This tour ended up as one of the most enjoyable tours. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and phenomenal at recounting the tale of the spots. We were amazed with her own additional bits of explanation and considerations.

Excellent tour

Got to experience the underground area was the highest attraction of this tour. The underground area which honestly was a wonder to me how gladiators lived there and prepared for fight. Best trip ever.

Very popular attraction

Very few places as well known as this truly satisfy everyone's expectations, but the Colosseum is great. We went with a small tour group and gained admittance to the stage. It truly places the size of the spot into viewpoint. Excellent tutor time!! DOn’t wait just book this and you’ll thank me later :)))

Memorable facts

We took this tour dependent on different reviews and settled on the correct decision. Mery was brilliant and educated which made our experience the ideal end to seven days of visiting Rome. To me a guided tour is the perfect way to explore a historical place.

It was impressive

It was a wonderful walk through the ancient history of Rome. I wish we had at least a couple of hours of more time to assimilate all the information. The colosseum trip, including palatine and forum, was amazing too. Undoubtedly it was one of the best-guided group tours I’ve had in years.

Loved the stories of history

Although Rome is full of historical places, but we had enjoyed the most iconic one, the Colosseum. Our tour started with the magnificent monuments, Colosseum. We were inside there about an hour and after that we headed to Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Our tour group had an amazing guide. We were grateful that Venera was our guide. She helped us during the whole tour and kept everyone entertained. We were amazed by the massive structures and designs with her precise explanations and great humor.

Guided tour is way to go

It goes without saying that the Colosseum is a must-visit place if you are not even a history freak. That being said, a guided tour is also a must to know everything about ancient Rome in an excellent way. I enjoyed the tour. Book the Colosseum ticket a few days earlier and notify the agency to include your in a small sized group. Enjoy.

Wonderful way to experience Colosseum

Carmine was an Italian lady who was our guide. She was well versed. She made a fine connection with us, was caring, proficient, and chivalrous. Also, the company organized a perfect tour that was really praiseworthy. The most existing part was seeing the underground where Gladiators used to live preparing for the glorious flights. Standing on the arena floor will give you a full view of this mighty place of ancient Rome.

We found this tour best

The adventure in the arena floor & underground of the colosseum was unreal. It was fabulous to have a guide in the colosseum to describe the history in detail & architecture. The information is not detailed written at all like our tour guide was explaining. Just contact with this company and book your desired tour.
