Radu star tour guide!
Angela_f, Sept 2023
We had Radu for our tour guide and he was so awesome. We had our kids aged 8 & 11 and he managed to keep them engaged the whole time. He was so funny but also had great knowledge. Really glad we had him as our tour guide
Excellent, would highly...
Giulia_T, Sept 2023
Excellent, would highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome especially if it’s for the first time. Our tour guide, Roberta, helped bring the history of the Flavian Amphitheater to life. Thank you!
Great tour with Alex!
Renee_S, Sept 2023
We had a great time! Alex was an excellent tour guide, we were captivated by his storytelling. We really did get to skip the long line for individual visitors, which made it much quicker and easier. We would definitely recommend this tour.

The Colosseum with a guide
Ljmallen, Sept 2023
A very informative and interesting tour with a good mix of facts and opportunities to take photos from good vantage points. With so many people I was glad I went on the tour, rather than by myself! Just the right amount of time to really appreciate the Colosseum.

Great tour
Linda_C, Aug 2023
The guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was excellent! Highly recommend this tour. Started on time and guide provided many vantage points for pictures.
Not on time, hard to reach, long wait.
Arabella_G, Aug 2023
Even with the purchase a slip the line ticket, the line was still long (an hour). Place of meeting wasn’t clear, I had to ask the person in the colloseum who directed me to the specific location. Guide was friendly but hard to understand. I texted and called to find the exact meeting place but no one answered. So communication wasn’t good. There’s lots n lots of people in the tour and they didn’t start on time.
Not a FAST TRACK tour
Joseph_P, Aug 2023
They call this tour FAST TRACK it’s a real joke. It took over 1 hour to get in. You are better on your own. It does not speed the process.
A fascinating testament to the awesome and terrible power of man
Luke_H, Aug 2023
The tour guide was fantastic. Funny, passionate and considerate- wish I got her name to thank her on here. An incredible sight with an incredible history
Knowledgeable and fun
Camilla_B, Aug 2023
Great tour and great way to skip the line! Finding the tour was a bit confusing but it was very organized, the group we were in was maybe 15 people and our tour guide Alessandra was the best! She was so nice and knowledgeable, and it was so sweet how she included kids on the tour and checked up on everyone. I’d recommend this tour for sure!
A+ Introduction
Rebecca_B, Aug 2023
A terrific introduction to the Colosseum for first-timers. Went with our two teens and it was just enough/not too much.
Great Guide, Great Experience
Jennifer_P, Aug 2023
This company was very punctual and organized. Our guide, Alessandra, was simply fantastic. There were four children in the group who ran out of steam after about 30 minutes, two of which were mine. She brilliantly engaged them and reeled them back in to keep them going and finish the tour. It’s probably not possible, but I would request her if you can. I would go with her for any tour - she will make a difference in your experience!
Worth It!
Carol_V, Aug 2023
Andriano was an excellent tour guide, sharing his vast knowledge of archaeology. I am so glad we decided to tour inside the Colosseum. We learned a lot in a short time.
Aryel_N, Aug 2023
We had a great time! The tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was so nice to be able to skip the line and go right into the coliseum.

Colloseum tour
Marija_Z, Jul 2023
Tour was very good. We didn't wait at all at entrance. Tour guide was very plesant and gave us a great story about history of Colosseum. After Colosseum she gave us some intresting story about Roman forum and some advices where to go to have a great panoramic view.
Great Experience
Richard_H, Jul 2023
