The guide outside the colosseum was great Her knowledge was amazing and she spoke very good English She gave a good background for beginners like us in Roman history. The colosseum at night is beautiful and overwhelming. I didn’t enjoy the explanations. The English of the guide was not very clear and it wasn’t coherent. It jumped from subject to subject It is not very important but it said in the description of the tour that we will be offered aperitif and snacks. We didn’t get any It is not necessary for the tour to have but don’t write what we don’t get I’m giving five star for the first guide And three star for the second guide

What a great company to host our Colosseum tour. The owner is extremely friendly and warm. Our guide, Lucia, was more knowledgeable than the guide books. They communicated well leading up to the day of the tour and then were quite organised before and after the tour. They also welcomed our children with a great interactive book of the Colosseum. Trust me when I tell you to book the tour ahead of time and don't just show up to buy tickets at the Colosseum. There are a ton of "guides" outside the gates trying to persuade you to hire them. With our small group we were not bothered by these persistent "solicitors." Thank you and we will recommend your company to all of our friends.

Colosseum - Early evening tour

Want to avoid the crowds and the heat then an evening tour, while pricey is the way to go. I was expecting more not from the tour but from the Colosseum itself. This is not the tour operator's fault, they provided ample historical info for this incredible landmark and explained everything. The tour company was on time, courteous and ready to answer questions. We (wife and daughter) needed, wanted to see the inside in a calming fashion and that's what this tour provided. In the end it's the price one must pay to forego the enormous crowds, 2+hrs of waiting time and the extreme July heat. This would be my advice, if you can live with the above then don't pay. If you can afford it, pay and get the personal tour
