I went on this tour with my parents, brother and my husband last night. It was amazing. At the meeting point you're welcomed with a table with pizza, chips, olives and booze. From there our tour guide introduced herself and started the tour. I forgot her name but she was fantastic. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic. I actually wish she was our tour guide for every other tour I've taken. I'm sad she only gave us a tour of the first part which was of ancient Rome. She then handed us over to a 2nd tour guide for the Collosseum. It was about 10pm at this point so no crowds and no sun! This was perfect as it was about 95 degrees earlier in the day. We were taken inside to see the collosseum on 3 different levels. It was spectacular. I highly reccomend this night your as you avoid the crowds and the heat if you're visiting in the summer. Their tour guides are very knowledgable and friendly.
We had so much fun! Having a small group aloud us to get to know the others. Our guide was awesome, the farm was interesting, the views were incredible, and getting to hear the Gregorian monks chant was an unbelievable experience we will always treasure. We also loved the little wine bar. Thanks!
This tour was very good, but the directions to the office where we were to meet were terrible!! The written instructions told us to take a little alley called Via del Colleseo, walk a few meters ahead and once you reach a little square with a restaurant. Opposite the restaurant is our office and meeting point. But, which way were we to go in the little alley? What was the name of the restaurant? Was it to the right or left on that street? What was the name of the tour office? Our group of 4 met up with another group of 4 similarly confused tour participants and, together, we asked 6 different local people working in the area if they could interpret where we were to meet staff in stores, hotels, police officers, and none of them could figure it out. Finally, we stumbled upon the little office in just enough time to take the tour. After that shaky start, the tour was well organized and interesting. I would recommend this to someone wanting to do a nighttime tour of the Colosseum and area, with the proviso to ask for more specific instructions than those printed on the tour receipt!
This tour came in two segments. The first part was great. Nice little reception at the office with Pizza and wine, which was greatly appreciated and a very warm reception by the guides. Our first guide through the Roman ruins and forum was great! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about explaining all the nuances of the area. However, we had to change guides at the colosseum and the new guide was pretty Blah in comparison. Too bad we couldn't have stayed with the first guide!
Great tour with enthusiastic guides. Matteo led the first part of the tour through the Roman Forum to the entrance to the Colosseum his humor and energy made the tour unforgettable. Our second guide sorry I've forgotten her name is an archeologist and gave us a thorough and informative tour. Group size was fairly small 15 I think which was easily manageable and 2-1/2 hours was sufficient time to cover both areas. This was our second time at the Colosseum but would definitely recommend even if you've been before.
