    Traveler Tips

    Its lit (not very well, but the trade off in ambiance means you have to tread carefully).
    Doing this tour at night with only 25 people REALLY cut down on public nuisance, noise, heat, loud children, etc.

    Disappointed that we spent over an hour outside the Coliseum talking and less time inside seeing the sights.
    Catherine_G, Sep 2023
    Great guides. Fantastic tour. Highlight of our trip to Rome. Don’t miss this one. Had some trouble finding the meeting point though. Exit Colosseo Station and just inside exit to your right is a set of stairs. Take these up to the road above the metro. This is which the ticket office is found.
    Get George as your Tour Guide
    Sara_R, Jul 2023
    If you go on this tour I would highly recommend asking for George to be your tour guide. He was so informative and had such great history to share the entire tour. He by far made this the best tour we have been on so far!
    The best way to see the Colosseum
    Margaret_A, Jun 2023
    This is an amazing way to see the Colosseum! There was only one other group anywhere near us. Our guide, George, was very knowledgeable. It was fascinating! I highly recommend this tour. My whole family loved it.

    Kim_H, Jun 2023
    We were notified tour was canceled and I haven’t received a response in regards to a refund. Tour cancellations with other tour companies seem to be happening to a lot of people too.

    This tour was delayed by 2 hours which meant we were all so tired by the time it finished at 11.30pm. Was by 2 different tour guides that duplicated information. The Colosseum staff were rude.
    Claudia, May 2023
    It was amazing. The tour guy was very knowledgeable and nice. When the tour time changed. They emails and called to make sure I was aware. Then there was another guide inside the colosseum that gave all same info as our tour guide. So I could have saved money booing directly to the colosseum. But it was amazing.
    Great tour
    Michele_M, May 2023
    This was a great experience no crowds good tour guide worth every penny The night tour was great I’m not sure why I have to write 100 characters
    Fun, educational and exciting
    Ruth_M, Oct 2022
    'Gigi' our tour guide was incredibly informative and fun. He elevated this experience for us. Was a very exciting tour. My companion has seen the colosseum before but never like this. Thanks for making it fresh and memorable.
    Viator refuses to refund our money!
    Nicole_M, Oct 2022
    We inadvertently booked this tour with the wrong dates. Viator has refused to refund our $598. We immediately notified Viator of this mistake, days before the tour even began, and to date, Viator has refused to give us our money back. We were not even in Rome on the day of the tour. Absolutely terrible!
    Bum steer
    Majella_S, Oct 2022
    Shockingly dissapointed. Myself and 11 other guests were 10 minutes late because it was extremely difficult to get a taxi on that night. And they refused to wait for us or contact the tour guide so we could catch up. The staff at the desk were rude and unhelpful when we ALL tried to find a solution. But they were happy to take our 100 hundred dollars each.
    Sylvia_O, Oct 2022
    The inside part of the tour was fantastic but what I didn’t know was that an hour and a half were spent outside the coliseum and that part was a waste. Also I booked this as a tour with Prosecco and that was not offered. The inside of the colosseum was beautiful though.
    Hoping for a refund...
    Donald_G, Sep 2022
    Hoping for a refund thunder storms moved in 15 minutes before scheduled. Was really looking forward to this tour. Off to Palermo today.
    Great but meeting place horrendous!
    Orlando_V, Sep 2022
    Incredible but the meeting place has to be better planned we lost half of our tour because of this …,location has nothing to do with the coliseum where it is ….it is horrendous it’s way on the other side of it we were lost one hour and we were calling and no one answered!! This is an issue!
    We were not able to get...
    Jody_D, Sep 2022
    We were not able to get into the Colosseum because only some of the names of the individuals in our tour were on the list to get into the Colosseum. I was on the list but my husband was not. I was not going to go in without him or our 2 other companions who couldn’t get in either. So we paid but never went into the Colosseum. I understand it was not Viator’s miscommunication but we should get some of our money back.
    Disaster in Rome
    Gerald_M, Sep 2022
    Our guided tour was first postponed, then delayed, and finally we were denied entry to the Colosseum. There was a miscommunication between the tour operator and the Colosseum security about the approved list of names. This tour was a disaster .
    Take this tour!
    Janet_A, Sep 2022
    The perfect way to see the Colosseum! Seeing the structure lit up at night was extraordinary! Highly recommend.
    So so
    Andrea_N, Aug 2022
    The first part to the forum was not great, not very knowledgable. The guide kept talking about slaves and that was the extent
