Tour of the Coliseum, Forum and Palatine Hill
Mary_C, Nov 2023
Tour was fine. I wish more specific information as to where to enter the Coliseum would have been helpful. ie Look for the white tent.

teresa_t, Nov 2023
It’s kind of confusing to get the e ticket , no communication until I called the tours agency and they sent the PDF tickets to WhatApp . Tickets were not sent in the accounts in the Apps. I had to call around 5pm the day before and someone pickup the call and said it will send out in 10 min
Received Etickets day before, no waiting, entered Colosseum quickly
Maria_M, Nov 2023
Enjoyed the visit, including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, great learning experience for those who appreciate ancient history
Huge rate difference with this site and orginal price
Binu_M, Nov 2023
For €38 the charge taken from me was €87 which I find a rip off … any doubt you can check with the amount collected from me and the entry ticket you issued ( the rate’s printed) I feel I’m cheated
Great visit. Small hitched
Pauline_R, Oct 2023
Great tour. Self guided as we didn’t have much time but got to see loads and the info boards are very good. Easy to get in but a bit of a pain that the pdf tickets came in so late. We were on a cruise so no chance to print but they took the pdf from the phone on the gate no problem. Quick tip - they ask for ID on the gate so have driving licence or passport. Also my time changed from 2.05 to 2.30 which was a little annoying as we were short of time.
Sasha_R, Oct 2023
Amazing. Palatine Hill and the Roman forum are fascinating and massive. Take a good 4 hours to truly explore.
Excellent visit but really poor information
Ignacio_S, Oct 2023
The tour is speechless for what you see. The information is really poor about whe the tickets will get to you. It says 7 to 24hr but whatey meant is after 19:00 on the day of the visit.....could not be more confusing it took few calls some WhatsApp messages to get the time for the tickets leaving you thinking whether is a con.....another thing is you need to get the real tickets inside the collosseum for the children and make sure you keep them safe as they are the same you will need to access the forum. Also complete lack of maps with entrance to both attractions very poor instructions in general.
Awesome Experience
Denise_G, Oct 2023
Skipping the line was nice. Overall experience was awesome. But if you plan ahead of time, you can book the same tickets for cheaper through the museums themselves.
Bad experience
Great expectations lousy result’s The tickets they send were fake, we got rejected at entrance and miss the visit Support told us this happened several times, can’t be trusted Got refund but that doesn’t compensate the frustration of missing such visit
OK, But Time of Entry Confusing
Jim_W, Oct 2023
The three places were fine but we had a lot of trouble confirming the exact times to be there. Our online reservation said both 9:15 and 10:10 for the Colosseum but when we checked, we were told to go to Forum and Palatine Hill at 10:00 and then to the Colosseum at 11:40. We left the Forum early to check at the Colosseum to ensure that the 11:40 time was OK so we didn't get back to see Palatine Hill until much later in the day. When we got an email from "Dream Rome" or whatever the third-party was that Viator booked with, they told us that the confusion was Viator's fault as "their server was down". We didn't believes that so you might want to check with them to confirm what happened. Once we got into the venues, things were just fine.
Colleseum tickets made easy.
Pierrette_F, Oct 2023
Getting tickets to the Colleseum in Rome is a confusing and difficult process. Dream Machine and Viator made it happen for us in a very positive way. When there was a slight problem, it was addressed very quickly and with a follow up to make sure the solution worked for us.
Bad experience
ErnestoD_M, Oct 2023
They never send my QR and I couldn't enter. They never responded to my recuest to send my QR Ticket.
Brilliant skip the queue
Sharon_D, Oct 2023
The best experience was not having to queue, we just walked up to the gate and went straight in. All instructions were clear and easy to follow.
Coliseum skip the queue
Debra_O, Oct 2023
Very easy to book. Tickets were sent via WhatsApp in the morning of our trip. Paid more but worth it to skip the massive queues. Fantastic experience visiting the Coliseum & Roman forum
stephen_w, Oct 2023
Great value and an excellent way to see the sights of ancient Rome. Just be aware that this ticket means you can go straight to the gates to gain entry - the instructions you receive are a bit vague on this
Horrendous service
Carla_M, Oct 2023
Absolutely horrendous! Tried to cancel the day before. Left a 3* review on Tripadvisor and got called today being sworn at and called a liar, why did I leave a 3* review. Joke of a company, use someone else.
I booked a trip to the...
John_N, Oct 2023
I booked a trip to the Rome Colosseum and Forum long before I left Canada. 7 Days before the date of the event, Viator sent me an email saying they actually didn't have tickets secured for me so I could get a refund. Well the reason I paid a premium to Viator in the first place is because these tickets are harder to get than a Taylor Swift concert ticket. So I asked Viator to try to find me tickets under the circumstances and because I was on the road, and don't speak the language. They said they would try. As we got closer to the date they sent me an email said the had tickets but no date or time. The day before arriving in Rome and three days before my original date, I email and phoned and left a message, that I need to know so I can plan. No response. My first day in Rome, still no response, so I go to the Colosseum to see if I can find some tickets and just about bought from a scalper. When I got back to my hotel that afternoon, about 4pm with no tickets, I send Viator a threatening email because I am so frustrated and then the called me. They say the don't send out tickets until 24 hours before the event. Well it was now about 16 hours before the show time. They finally sent me the tickets. Totally unnecessary stress and won't be dealing with these guys again.

Joanne_L, Oct 2023
Even at 5P entry time the colosseum was extremely crowded with many tour groups. It made it difficult to move freely throughout the building.
Everything was perfect....
Kinga_J, Oct 2023
Everything was perfect. The tickets were send in time. It was easy to go in, and it was a pleasent and memorable adventure
Undelivered voucher
Miroslava_G, Oct 2023
You didn't send us a voucher, so we couldn't take the tour. We are waiting for a refund. Your partner agency did not communicate with us 2 days before the deadline. You wrote that you are having technical problems. We are disappointed and feel cheated.
