The skip the line was great. We didn't have to wait at all. This was nice for people that have a wheelchair.
VIP Colosseum tour
Sabrina_b, Aug 2023
What an awesome tour of the Colosseum and the Roman forum. Our private guide, Stefania, made our visit a 10/10. She gave us so much historical information, and with just 6 of us, we didn’t have to wear earbuds, which was helpful. Skip the line was so worth it, making it a VIP experience, and allowed us to visit more areas in less time,, allowing us to grab lunch and gelato before our next tour, which was a life saver, as it was quite humid out. The reason for the 4 star was because it was very difficult getting the information for our tour. It took multiple messages to Viator, and several messages to the tour operator before getting any information about where to meet, etc. before getting details at 9:30pm the night before the tour. Again, Stefania made our tour well worth it! Would choose this tour again.
Excellent company
Jason_W, Aug 2023
A must do, when in Rome. We didn’t have to stand in long queues and walked straight in. We preferred to go with tickets only as we wanted to do things at our own pace and not get stuck in the crowded areas of the guided tours. I have used Viator in Iceland and now in Rome. I would definitely recommend their products.
An amazing piece of history.
Janette_S, Aug 2023
Wow!!! What an amazing piece of history! One of the best things I've ever seen! To imagine what life was like and what the ancient Romans lived like, a fantastic experience.
Collosseum trip
Peter_C, Jul 2023
Tons of tourists but it was a great experience. We were booked for 1:25pm and just arrived 2 min before to get our tickets. I recommend to give yourself some extra time. Especially in July. The operator was very helpful too to resend the tickets. Thank you.
Dale_E, Jul 2023
The experience was listed for a 9:15 start. When the confirmation came through it was for 10:45. Upon requesting a refund, the operator never completed their reply. The ticket went unused.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced regarding the timing of your experience. We understand that the timing that was booked for your visit may not have aligned with your plans. Regarding the communication, we did send several reminders asking for your preferred time of entry, but unfortunately, we received no response until the last minute. We're sorry for any delays in our operator's response and any inconvenience it may have caused.
Excellent experience and tour
Shaun_B, Jun 2023
We ordered the tickets online in Italy after our previous tour with another company was cancelled. This tour company was very responsive and assisted us when we had trouble downloading the tickets. The directions were perfect and our 9.40am tour meant we walked straight into an almost empty Colloseum. Just as well because the ticket line was very very long. Skip the line is the only way to go. Highly recommended tour company.
Great experience
Lisa_W, Jun 2023
Great experience. We were pleased we didn’t do a guided tour and went at our own pace. Would definitely recommend. Also good that you get to visit Palentine Hill and Roman Forums
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Dear Lisa, Thank you for sharing your feedback! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great experience exploring the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum at your own pace. We appreciate your recommendation and are delighted that you enjoyed the opportunity to visit these historic sites.
Great trip
Sherry_C, Jun 2023
It was good. Using Rick Steves app is the best! This was my 4th time in Rome but my niece’s first time. So most of this I had seen but not all of it. We put on 25000 steps that day so be sure and wear comfortable shoes!! But everything was amazing! Food was awesome!!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Dear Sherry, Thank you for sharing your experience! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed using the Rick Steves app during your visit to Rome. It's wonderful that you were able to show your niece the city for her first time, and that you still discovered new places together. Walking 25,000 steps is quite an achievement, and we agree that comfortable shoes are a must! We're thrilled that everything was amazing, and that you also enjoyed the food. If you have any other feedback or if there's anything else we can assist you with, please don't hesitate to let us know.
Great experience

Great. Reliable tickets
Shauna_M, Jun 2022
Second time being in the coloseum and the forum but it was my mams first time. She loved it the skip the line tickets are handy so you can just go in. You also can leave the coloseum or forum whenever you Want and go explore the other at your own pace.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Shauna, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to the Colosseum. Thank you again for your review. We hope to see you again in Rome. Ciao!

The tour that never happened
Trail438089, Sep 2019
This was our only disappointing tour we had with Viator, who we used exclusively for our trip. We had scoped out our schedule and timing two days before, but we were not prepared for the Sunday closing of Subway B (one of only 2 lines in Rome, and the only one serving the colosseum). Consequently we need to walk from Termini (junction of Metro A and B) to the colosseum using a marginal map - The Italians like to skip the naming of streets all together, as well as change the name of a straight road every block or so, so as to honor the most words possible in the Italian dictionary. We left our hotel with plenty of time to be at our 11:45 tour, but through various unexpected detours and extensive map reading we were not able to reach our meeting point until 11:55. There was no skip-the-line representative there to give us any options - we asked all the other English tour givers and we were in the right spot, but they had just already left. With the metro being closed, they had to have only a handful of folks who were able to make that tour. We stood around the meeting spot for 90 minutes hoping someone would show, or maybe another tour leader for a later group, but to no avail. We only had one day left in Rome, and that was spent on another wonderful tour of Vatican City through Viator, so there was no chance to rebook. This was a big disappointment, but the only one we had with Viator where we thought there was significant responsibility by the tour operator.
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Dear Sir/Madam, We are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at the Colosseum. Thank you very much for your valuable feedback. However, you had booked a skip-the-line entrance ticket which gives you direct access to the Colosseum without having to queue up or wait for a tour leader or guide and the tickets were sent well in advance. We understand the frustration you had during your visit due to the various closures and changes in the Metro routes in Rome. Unfortunately, the past few months have been tough for many customers, for the same reasons. Once again, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. Regards, Eurolink Worldwide
