We had an amazing time on our Colosseum tour! Our guide Camilla was lovely, knowledgeable, and entertaining. We loved every minute, and so did all of the kids in our group. They all said it was their favorite experience during our time in Rome. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience for all! Kam DeMarco
Overall I really enjoyed the tour. However, the tour lists the Roman Forum as part of the tour and we only looked down at the forum from the overlook on Palatine Hill. I was really looking forward to walking through the forum and hearing about it from the guide so I did find this disappointing. Especially because we ended our tour at the Colosseum which meant we were unable to re-enter the Roman Forum/Palatine Hill area which meant we had to re-arrange our schedule for the next day to be able to go back and visit the Forum properly. Which meant having to pay again for that ticket which was included in the tour price. I realize seeing all three of these sited in such a short time is difficult but our group practically had Palatine Hill to ourselves and I felt like we were practically jogging through it, only to then end up rushing to the Colosseum and waiting 20 minutes for our underground tour. I think the tour could be timed better and if nothing else, should end inside the gates to Palatine Hill and the Forum to give people the opportunity to explore on their own when the tour is over.
This was an excellent tour. Our guide Davide was incredibly knowledgable as well as fun and engaging. The tour provided the kind of extra info and colour I imagine you just wouldn't get looking around by yourself. It also cut out a lot of the faffing around we'd probably have gone through if we'd organised seeing these sites by ourselves. What probably would have been a long and gruelling day navigating the sometimes confusing Roman sites was neatly tucked into a few hours. This made seeing the sites in Rome much more manageable and enjoyable.
I completed the VIP visit of the Colosseum/underground/ Palatine Hill/Forum. The tour and our guide Camilla was outstanding in every way! I recommend this tour to everyone!!! Grazie, Camilla!
tour was excellent and tour guide was just as excellent. she was very accommodating our one of our family members limited mobility and she took us to wonderful exculsive places of the colleseum and surrounding areas. we would definitely recommend this tour and would take it again if we are back in Rome.
