Great guide for a great venue

Fi was a hugely enthusiastic and knowledgable guide who really brought the tour to life. My 7 year old was lapping up every minute. Highly recommended!

Our tour was absolutely amazing! My only complaint would be that it was hard to hear our guide sometimes, even with the headphones, but that's understandable with thousands of people on different tours around you. The Colosseum tour was one of our favorite parts of our honeymoon!

There´s no place like Rome for a wonderful honeymoon and if on top of that you enjoyed the tour, we couldn´t be more satisfied and proud. Congratulations!
A ruin that really ruined!

This is my 6th World Wonder and I was surprised how destroyed it is! Something to see but not to repeat.

Just back from marvelous Rome, where we did a tour of the fabulous Colosseum with our tour guide Dennis. There was a family of four and myself and my husband, so a small group. Dennis was very informative and very passionate about his fellow Roman. No trip to Rome is complete without a trip to the Colosseum. The Tour office is tucked up a little street, follow the directions closely and you wont get lost.

It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t necessary either. The guide spent a lot of time in once area in the beginning and then we got rushed and pushed out toward the end. We felt we could’ve easily just paid for entrance and read the postings instead.

A lovely experience and Cecilia was very knowledgeable and friendly. A delight! She made sure my elderly parents were well taken care of. We were late, so they added the Palatine Hill tour in for free.

seriously, Francesca was the best tour guide for this visit. we learned a LOT about the colosseum in a short time period, and she even provided photos, renderings, and examples to help everyone visualize. everyone else on the tour thought the same. would 100% recommend using her as the guide. she made our day special!
