This tour went above and beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Sam made this trip unforgettable. The depth of his knowledge, his humour and way with words was so impressive! His passion for history was very apparent and he did his best to make sure that we had the best tour possible. We loved every minute of it! Highly recommend!

Scammy experience

Arrived on time but the tour had left already. A Viator guy nearby provided us individual passes but made us pay again in cash, above face value. I would heavily advise looking to official tours rather than Viator.

Ancient Rome in 3 hours
MauritsJonas

If you visit Rome, you actually can’t go without this tour. You will get to know so much more about ancient Rome and you will appreciate what you see in front of you so much better. All the elements were surprisingly dynamic. The tour guide is extremely knowledgeable and you can ask any question. It can be a long walk with kids, but definitely worth it.

When the guide stopped reading a book to us all day.. very long, tiring and monotonous!! Won't recommend
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Mrs. Cindy_W Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review. We are really deeply sorry to hear that you felt that the tour didn't live up to expectations. The tour did last 3 hours but just and during and after the tour, we did not receive any complaints from you or any other client. In particular, we are dismayed that you felt our guide wasn't giving the best possible service they could during your tour. We do our best to hire guides who are passionate and really ready to engage clients and bring the Colosseum to life. We are actually surprised to hear that the guided tour was boring as we received much positive feedback from other clients. Andrea has been working with us for a long time now, he has always received 5-star comments and the customers who did the tour with him were extremely satisfied. We would like to thank you again for the feedback and we are sorry if the visit wasn't as you expected. Kind Regards Stefano D.

Samuel was a wonderful tour guide. He shared not only the history but also pointed out linguistic connections. He was flexible and gave our small group options to accommodate everyone. You could tell his love of the history and of the city of Rome.
