We had a great tour of the colosseum and forum with our guide Guido. He was easy to understand and had great information. The group was well organized and made the experience very smooth despite being a very crowded tourist experience.

Our tour guide Gabriel was amazing. Very informative, kind, and fun. He explained a lot of cool things that we didn’t know about Roman Empire history and all its architecture. We definitely recommend this tour especially with Gabriel!

As someone who had travelled to the Colosseum before, I was excited to actually learn about what I was looking at. This tour was the best thing I booked on my Italian vacation. My tour guide, Gabrielle, was amazing. He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he was showing us. I highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was the best part of my trip.

Rude and literally called and yelled at me
Nicholas_R
, Aug 2022
Did not start off well. They moved us into an earlier group. Called and literally yelled at me saying I was late. Our group was at 1:30 and that’s what I paid for. It was 1:05 when they called me and yelled at me saying I was late. We showed up at 1:15 and was told again by an incredibly rude lady that we’re late. The tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed her very much. Unfortunately then after all that the tour ended 45 min early. Only went on for 2:15 minutes. Touriks is NOT a good company. Stay far away from them.

Tour guide was great and knowledgeable! Loved the small group- only 11 people. Loved the Colosseum and the underground tour. The Palace and Forum was interesting, but no shade and VERY hot the day of our tour.

This was a must do tour & we paid the extra money compared to other options to include the underground & arena. The history and knowledge of our tour guide was amazing. You can not do the Colosseum without a tour guide, you miss too much history.

Worth it, go in the morning, guide should let you ask questions
Diana_B
, Aug 2022
Definitely a good tour. Exclusive, not a lot of people going underground. The underground was worked on during the pandemic so more people may be going there soon. I would recommend an early morning tour before the Colosseum gets crowded because it can be difficult to stick with your group while hearing your guide and dodging other people. In the morning it is quiet and you are able to hear without difficulty. The only feedback I have is our tour guide never took a breath so we couldn't ask questions. It wasn't very interactive, it was more active AT you. But still totally worth it.

Our guide, Chiara, from Touriks, was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and kept the tour moving (which the kids appreciated). The Touriks staff was very helpful with scheduling our large group of 19 into 2 smaller groups at the time we needed. The other group also had a great experience with their guide. Thank you Touriks!

Do not use this company !!
ritchie_T
, Jul 2022
This tour company was completely disorganized and we waited over 30 min passed start time just to be told WE COULD NOT GO UNDERGROUND, apparently there were ticket issues. Something did not seem legit about this company, we ended up doing the generic above ground tour with the masses.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Ritchie, We are terribly sorry for what happened with your Colosseum underground tickets on that day. It was the first day of the new rule of the Colosseum according to which the names of all visitors have to be registered on the relative tickets (which had been booked for you several months in advance). At the same time, for a technical issue, the accounts of most operators like ourselves had been blocked since the day before and we could not update your records as required until the issue was solved several days later. Despite our insistence and protests with the Colosseum administration, that was the source of the problem, most operators could not use their tickets for the undergrounds on that day. The only thing we could do in that moment to save your visit of the Colosseum was to offer you a refund, which we issued immediately, and give you a "regular" tour of the Colosseum. We are very sorry that you and many others happened to be in the middle of this absurd situation on that day. We share your frustration and we understand how disappointing it must have been, but we assure you that we did everything in our power to avoid this from happening.
