A beautiful tour of the Colosseum

Breathtaking and awe-inspiring place. We were astounded to think how they built it two thousand years ago. Fairly well valued for entry, We managed without rushed and still fully enjoyed the experience. There is nothing to complain about the tour. Rome tour tickets have it all to make the experience memorable for their clients.

Exactly what I expected

We’d booked the first slot underground tour at the Colosseum. We were on a tour with about 20 people and a very expert guide who was an architect. The tour we got access to went to the places that normal visitors don’t get entrance to. The tour lasted about 2 hr 30 mins and underneath the Colosseum was amazing. There were lots of steps in the underground that are simply stunning and thrilling. You’ll feel the vibe of how gladiators lived there. It’s a must-book tour unless you want to miss the main part of ancient Rome!

It was massive

Marina the guide was splendid, her insight was brilliant. The visit itself was truly agreeable. It was truly fascinating to see inside the Colosseum and improve the feeling of what it would almost certainly have been similar to, including the underground segments. I personally preferred the roman forum despite the fact that it's for the most part ruins - the sheer size, all things considered, is bewildering. It was extraordinary to ponder around after the visit completed, with more information on what I was taking a gander at.

Loved the depth of the extended Colosseum tour

It’s so difficult to put into words the knowledge and experience of actually being in the Colosseum. The history that encompasses the building, the exciting feat of how this was built over two thousand years ago, and actually reconsidering the footsteps of where western civilization truly started.

It’s a must-see attraction

I was not a fan of history and I never really cared about anything that took place years ago. I only went with my husband because he wanted to go. Our tour of Italy was a tour of a lifetime. How amazing to see these old places and walk on the same pavement as gladiators did so many years ago. I thanked my husband if he hadn't forced me to go I would have missed learning what happened here and to actually touch something. Great tour indeed. Amazing experience!

Wonderfully preserved structure

This was our first outing to Rome, and we needed to see as much as possible in the couple of days that we had there. This visit was educational, intensive, and gave us a point by point history lesson throughout the entire existence of the Colosseum, Roman forum, and Palatine hill. The guide was interesting thus simple to tune in to and comprehend. I would recommend this visit to any individual who needs a visit that will give a total lesson on this antiquated site.

Loved our visit to this ancient wonder

Until the start of our tour, we were excited to see the colosseum. We were completely amazed when we showed up at the colosseum underground. We were walking through dark hallways that were completely empty and underneath stone structures away from crowds. Roman forum and palatine hill also were so great to visit and these places carry an excellent history of the enriched political and social era of ancient Rome. Great place to visit in person.

Colosseum is overwhelming

I would highly recommend this tour. I don't know if there is any way for someone to request Valentina but she was a fabulous guide. Her passion for roman history was communicable and we felt so fortunate to have her for our Colosseum tour. Definitely I gave 5 stars both the tour and the guide. This company is doing a great job to uphold Roman history!

Colosseum is remarkable

Seen this majestic construction on documentary many times but the sheer size of it took my breath away. The queues to get in were not so long so that we had enough time to go in, and walking around it we saw and learned so much. Our assigned guide by the company was great. Recommended company to book your tour from :-)

A truly wonderful tour

This was an astounding visit to the most amazing places in the world. Inside, the Colosseum brings chills that I can’t explain in words. I felt like I was a gladiator and we were prepared for the action. Must-book tour in Rome.
