Evening tour canceled, but Explore Italy Tours made things right
Wendy_R
, Aug 2021
We were so excited to book this tour, as it included the newly opened sections of the Underground that few visitors have seen. We received a call two days before our tour advising that no evening tours were being allowed at the time, and they offered to re-book us during a daytime tour. We were grateful that the tour company reached out in plenty of time and made things right with re-booking us to another tour. We got the same Underground and VIP-level experience on the day trip. Our guide was excellent - so energetic and full of fascinating stories of the history of not only the Colosseum, but of the Forum and of Rome itself. This was our third time at the Colosseum, but we learned and saw so much more than the times before. This is an excellent tour that we highly recommend!

The underground is fascinating, we even received a bonus tour of the exterior of the forum as it was a quiet night. Tour provider was professional and friendly. Would certainly recommend to all.

Tour got cancelled on the same day! No notification or email! Waited 20 mins at meet up location with 5 other people until I called to check on our tour guide. Tour was scheduled a month ahead of time!

Disappointing
Celeste_M

We booked this our last night in Rome in replacement of a 3 star Michelin restaurant I’d been looking forward to because we thought it’d be a more unique experience. We arrived at the meeting spot and found the other group joining the tour but the tour guide never showed up. Upon calling they were rude and unapologetic and claimed they oversold tickets. The other group booked their tickets 2 months in advance and were so disappointed. I understand things happen and can get canceled, that’s just life. I’ll never excuse someone for being rude or unkind, for that reason I’d never use this company again. We still had a beautiful night after we found a delicious local Italian restaurant to dine at.

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

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.

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.
