      Does exactly what it is...
      simho88, Nov 2023
      Does exactly what it is supposed to do, let you skip the lines of buying a ticket. Would recommend, the lines can be long.
      Disappointing service
      Martins_M, Oct 2023
      The objects seen were significant and fascinating. Unfortunately, the information provided by the guide was fragmented and devoid of any context. Besides the guide confused the starting time of the excursion and we had to by tickets for the children to attend the Forum in addition to the hundreds we already paid for the private excursion. The service below the average.
      The best way to go if you are a do it yourself tourist
      michael_w, Oct 2023
      This ticket saved so much time and got us the experience we were hoping for. Definitely worth the price
      We’re not allowed in.
      Don_D, Oct 2023
      Unfortunately we missed our entry time and were not allowed in. I know they have a policy but it’s too strict. Not very happy.
      Not organized the service
      YunHee_K, Oct 2023
      The worst agency for the trip. The staff don't know about the Viator company to solve my on-line confirmation and can not change my real tickets. So, I lost my day and money too.
      Philip_K, Oct 2023
      Unforgettable experience. So much to see. Impossible to take it all in during one visit. This was a highlight of our visit to Rome.
      No fair
      Suzanne_J, Oct 2023
      Due to a transportation delay, that we had no control over, we were not able to arrive as early as they asked us to, so they re-sold our tickets and would not allow us a refund.
      Response from Host, Oct 2023
      Hello Suzanne, Thank you for your feedback. Just to clarify, firstly - we did not re-sell your tickets; there is also no provision to do so, either way we do not indulge in such things. Secondly, the Cancelation Policy clearly implies that there are no refunds on confirmed tickets - particularly when there are any unforeseen circumstances like impediments to punctuality. We had maintained clear communication with you prior to your trip, booking the tickets at the time you had requested. We take great care in assessing, analyzing and only then responding to your feedback; this requires time. Thank you for understanding.
      Good but confusing
      Alejandro_U, Oct 2023
      Get early, confusing setup for entrance. Needs cheaper prices cause official website is way cheaper ,
      Don't waste your money - buy tickets direct from the Colosseum official website
      Brian_T, Oct 2023
      Expensive way to get into the Colioseum and no added value for buying these tickets versus direct from the Colosseum. And absolutely no refunds or changes, regardless of the situation.
      Great to see, but it was so crowded, we really didn’t enjoy our visit
      elizabeth_f, Oct 2023
      Tickets were great, but it was too crowded, couldn’t enjoy it! Very crowded, just couldn’t see items in displays. There was sooooo many people with guides and they stand in the way of everything!!!!!
      Must do trip!
      Kelly_M, Sep 2023
      Everything fascinating. Easy to follow instructions. Superb value. Anyone visitng Rome should do this trip and booking in advance saves time in the big queues.
      Toby_F, Sep 2023
      ‘Skip The Line’ was definitely worthwhile, straight past the queues at the allotted time and into the Colloseum. Maria from the tour company checked in via WhatsApp to make sure we’d got the tickets and location details ok which was a nice touch. Absolutely fascinating, incredible place to visit. Book for morning if possible so you’ve the rest of the day to explore Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. So much to see here, could easily spend a whole day at these three locations on their own.
      It was good and easy
      Mariela_T, Sep 2023
      It was easy to communicate and get the tickets. Everything was alright except that we have take tickets for another time that we chooses, but still was good. Thank you
      Amazed as I took in this great historical place.
      Jonita_m, Sep 2023
      Although it was overwhelming to take everything in, I was in awe at all I saw. The colosseum was impressive. It was pretty crowded but well organized. It was nice not to have to wait in the extremely long lines because I booked ahead of time. We basically walked right thru with no wait.
      Great Ticket
      Gary_H, Sep 2023
      Perfect way to visit the colosseum with the ‘beat the line’ tickets which saved us hours as the other line was huge and we heard took THREE hours to get in. Highly recommended buying this ticket if planning to visit the colosseum on your visit to Rome
      Lots of people
      Jaimee_H, Sep 2023
      It was so crowded. So many people and it was just so hot. Viator couldn't do anything about the weather, but I'm glad I've seen it.
      Torrey_P, Sep 2023
      SCAM! Eurolink world wide is a scam, look at the other reviews, they are accurate. They do not send accurate location or tickets just a loop of vouchers that dont work. Had to buy on-site through a different tour provider.

      Excellent visit
      Nicolette_B, Sep 2023
      The skip the line worked very well. The colosseum is amazing ! We took the audio guide to listen to at our pace. The large tours spoil the experience as they were constantly in the way ! But this is a place to visit.
      Worth It!
      Elvin_M, Sep 2023
      The ticket is straightforward with its directions for meetups and distribution. Also it lasts for 24 hours. We flew into the country mid morning and didn’t arrive at the colosseum until the afternoon for our specific colosseum appointment. The weather was really warm making us decide to visit the remainder (Palatine Hill & Roman Forum) the next morning since the ticket was still eligible. Was a great way to stretch the tour for ‘2’ days. The only recommendation I’d add is for the tour group to provide another attachment featuring the ‘popular/recommended spots to visit throughout the hill/forum. Cesar’s tomb, the Palatine overlook etc.
      Official Scam - Rip off Main touristic place
      Asil_D, Sep 2023
      This is actually a touristic Rip off. The cut the line ticket does not exist, you go inside like everyone. Its just a scam to sell more expensive tickets. The whole Coloseum-Paladium-Foro combo is not impressive that much. Its like the obligatory visit when in Rome but don't get your expectation high. Its a full official scam. Rome has so much more to offer and seing all these places from outside is the same.
      Response from Host, Sep 2023
      Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear your experience didn't meet your expectations. Our 'cut the line' ticket is designed to save time, and while the Colosseum-Palatine Hill-Forum trio may not have dazzled you, we appreciate your insights. Rome indeed has much more to offer, and we hope you discover its hidden gems on your next visit.
