Great tour guide

The guide Max was very knowledgeable and explained things we would never have been able to learn on our own! Only drawback was that the actual tour didn’t start until about 45 mins after the initial meeting time and went over by an hour- if we had something planned afterward we might have missed it or would of had to leave the tour early.

Thanks to LATE tour group members I had to cut my tour short

Be aware that this tour does not start at the posted time. You have up to 25 minutes to be LATE! As such some very inconsiderate members of our group were about 1/2 an hour late. When they arrived, we then started our tour. I booked a 60 minute tour because of the time in my schedule for that day. I did not anticipate that the 60 minute tour would start 30 minutes later or I would have booked the tour 1 hour before. Then the tour continued past the 1 hour start time. (I booked the noon tour that started at 12:30 because they waited on the last 2 people to show. Then the tour 60 minutes started at 12:30. I had to leave at 1:00 - the time I was expecting for the tour to end to meet my next engagement.) So thanks to the late start, i.e. by the tour company and the late groupies I did not get the full advantage of the tour but those that arrived late did. I would never book this tour unless you have no other engagements. Also, you get 10 min on the arena floor and 10 to the side of the arena. The rest is narrated by the tour guide.

Fantastic experience!

This was my son’s favourite tour by far. The guide (I think his name was Nicolas) was just fantastic, perfect for kids who don’t like to be overwhelmed with information and walking about for hours on end. My son and another young child that was in the same tour were made to feel important and included in the experience. Great for families and those who want a quick but informative tour of the colosseum.

Really amazing tour, could not fault...

Really amazing tour, could not fault it. The tour itself was really special, getting to enter through the Gladiator's Entrance and experience the Colosseum from the unique perspective of the arena floor was incredible. Our guide was wonderful, she was a native English speaker and was full of knowledge and fun. The Colosseum itself was extremely busy, we spoke to people who had stood in line for over an hour just to get tickets so the fact that we were able to skip the queue with this tour and have special quick access was a great bonus. You won't be disappointed if you take this tour.
