Great tour

Santos, our guide was fantastic. Since it’s a third party, I think it was a little expensive and the side tour is just to kill time before you’re in the Colosseum, but if you are booking last minute and there’s no other way in, it’s definitely worth it.

Impossible to find the ticket office
William D
, Oct 2019
Do not use this tour unless you travel to the colossuem the day before to get your entrance tickets. No one will answer the phone to help direct you if you are unable to find them!!! We arrived 2.5 hours before the tour and could not get any help finding the ticket office. They have no phone support, we called them 10 times and had to leave messages and no one ever returned any calls…ever!!!. They do not give refunds, They take your money and leave you to fend for yourself. I would Never, Never, Never recommend this tour to my family and friends!!!! Bill & Tracy

We are sorry about your experience. On the confirmation voucher, we send all the information regarding the tour, as the departure time, the check-in time and the departure point. In your case, you had to arrive at the meeting point 15 minutes prior to your departure time. In the evenings, our office opens 1 hour prior to the tour departure time and the telephone is not reachable before that time. The check-in for the tour starts 15-30 minutes prior to the tour departure time. We are very sad about this review. You arrived for the tour for more than 2 hours before the tour time and we have no responsibility about this.

This tour was a lot of fun (we were among a handful of people in the Colosseum). The tour guides were knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting.

Our favourite tour

Definitely worth booking at this time of day. Very quiet , first tour guide was English so very easy to understand. He delivered the history of the coliseum and early Rome in a very exciting way. Wish he had come inside with us as the next guide was more difficult to understand because of her accent. The inside spoke for itself!!

Evening colosseum tour

I was greatly looking forward to this tour, however there were several things about it I wish I was aware of before we booked. If we were in possession of all the facts I can not say I would have booked it. To begin with, the first hour of the outside “tour” consisted of a “guide” from the tour company sitting us down and going through the history of the colosseum. No walking, just sitting for an hour until our reservation began at the colosseum. Once inside a Colosseum guide takes over the tour. Then she repeated the exact same script as the guide from the first hour!! Exactly the same- only difference was she corrected many of the historical facts he got wrong. Clearly the guide from the tour company knows what the colosseum tour script is and just repeats it to kill an hour. So disappointed. The Prosecco was good and set the bar high and the office staff was very friendly but it was just such a let down to hear the exact same thing repeated twice. By the time the actual tour began it was almost 930 and it was still an hour in a barely lit colosseum. It’s beautiful but very difficult to see many of the details the tour includes. Your much better off booking a night tour and showing up strictly at the colosseum with their guides. Better yet- book the day and see everything they refer to throughout the tour.

Night Colosseum tour
Holly W

My daughter and I went on this tour and Frederica was our guide. She was marvelous-had a Masters in Architecture and gave us a true “picture” of the building AND the “time” of these bloody games. She used her iPad to illustrate what Rome looked like, Nero’s villa, family life, clothing...even the modes of male/female relationships. I thought the building was a little too dark, missed some of the floor structures, but that wasn’t Viator or Frederica’s fault! Doing this tour at night with only 25 people REALLY cut down on public nuisance, noise, heat, loud children, etc. fantastic!!!

We had anton as our outside guide and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Funny, witty really informative and just wonderful. Our inside guide was lovely but wasn't at the same level

THIS is the Colosseum Tour you Need to do!

Start off with prosecco then walk to the Colosseum around the corner. One guide spends an hour outside the building, educating all about the Forum and surrounding area, as well as how the Colosseum was built. Then you're handed off to a second guide who takes you inside the depths of the Colosseum at night. Its lit (not very well, but the trade off in ambiance means you have to tread carefully). Bring comfortable shoes - stairs are pitched and slippery. Pay attention and hold on to the rails. Do that and you will enjoy this gem of a tour!

The tour was outstanding! Our guide's knowledge and communication of the chronology of the Colosseum and its significant events was excellent. The film was also a nice touch. Thank you!

Tour started 45 mins late and we had kids so booked the time for reason. The tour was 2 parts and each was good but much of the info was duplicate so would have been better to have different info discussed and make it more interesting/engaging
