Incredible, amazing guide
Monique_E, Nov 2023
Best experience. We felt it was perhaps the best tour we have ever been on, mainly due to our guide, Vasco (I hope that's how you spell it!) who is an archeologist and was incredibly informative. Amazing. One of the top highlights of a month- long trip.
"A magical site in earth"
TheJnungaray, Oct 2023
"observing and seeing so much history in person and culture was over whelming and so real " of something we only see in a movie...Amazing!
Discover your own time in Ancient Rome.
Linda_R, Oct 2023
Our guide made analogies to Ancient Rome to modern life. Very helpful. His love of the history was infectious.
Great tour but terrible experience with the tour operator and the company they collaborated with,
Joanne_D, Oct 2023
The tour itself turned out to be fantastic. However, the experience trying to find the tour guide was awful. According to our instructions from our tour operator called “The Tour” (poorly chosen name), we were supposed to meet them wearing purple shirts. The only people who were wearing purple shirts at the very busy site outside the Colloseo were with a tour operator called “Crown Tours”. I approached a guy from this group. He saw that my tour operator’s name was “The Tour”. He immediately said they were not the group I was looking for. So we spent the next 20 minutes looking for “The Tour”. We could not find any such group. And no one else was wearing purple shirts. I called the phone number for “The Tour”. They never answered. We thought we had missed the tour because the meeting time had passed. Then I texted “The Tour” but didn’t receive a response immediately. Then I tried to talk to another guy from “Crown Tours”. He was more helpful than the first one and made some calls. Right then I received a text back from “The Tour” saying I should look for his colleagues with the purple shirts with a company called “Crown Tours”. At that point the Crown Tours guy said that “The Tour” was one of the groups they collaborated with and helped out. I asked them why their first guy had no idea about that. They didn’t have an answer. I said if you know you are collaborating with another tour group you should not be sending people who are looking for that tour group away. Again they had no good answer. We did ultimately get to join the Crown Tours group. The tour guide was good. But both the first Crown Tours guy who sent us away and “The Tour” company should be given a fail for their service. The first Crown Tours guy should have known about their deal with “The Tour”, and “The Tour” operator should have told us right off the bat that we should be looking for a group called “Crown Tours”. There was no reason why they left out that very important information.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Thank you for your feedback, but we send a confirmation one day before the activity with more details about the meeting point. You have seen the email today 14/10 saying that is two days late! However we are hoping your next experience goes better. Thank you
Hot, crowded, and hard to hear
Tim_P, Sep 2023
Unfortunately, with the large crowds it was difficult to hear our guide. Also, the group of 24 seemed too large, because if we became separated by more than 15 feet, the audio would stop working. I think groups of 12 should be the maximum size.
Wonderful, knowledgeable...
Natasha_D, Sep 2023
Wonderful, knowledgeable and insightful tour guide Laora - group was a little big but didn’t affect the tour.
Expensive but worth it.
Wendy_L, Sep 2023
This tour left right on time with 25 people in our group. The guide was very knowledgeable and responsive. His directions in any crowded areas were very clear. The headsets worked well to allow us to hear all he said. We never had to wait in any long lines - just entered easily and quickly.
Great tour at the Colosseun
Las_P, Aug 2023
Great tour at the Colosseum. Our tour guide was very pleasant and had the group very engaged. Nice .
Eve_H, Aug 2023
Brilliant tour and guide! Tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the history of the colosseum
Well worth it
Roxanne_K, Jul 2023
The guide was very easy to understand Ad generous in finding shade! The heritage was told in a way that interested the crowd.
Long line for "skip the line"
Suzanne_T, Jul 2023
To be fair, it was a very crowded time of year. However, we waited in a line for 45 minutes (for "skip the line"). Our tour guide was very knowledgeable but several people had to leave early because the tour was much longer due to the long wait to get in.
Diana_S, Jun 2023
This tour was a great experience for myself and my family, our tour guide Alessie was great. Highly recommend it - note there is a lot of walking
Well worth the 3hrs!.
Catherine_R, Jun 2023
We had an amazing guide Mya who engaged with all participants and was full interesting information, well worth it!
Difficult in such a busy time of year with the crowds but our guide was excellent.
Lisa_M, Jun 2023
Excellent guide, very informative and organized. Through no fault of hers, it was challenging with the intensity of the summertime crowds.
one not to miss!
Neil_B, Jun 2023
an awesome history lesson which will be enjoyed by all! Just be warned that you will be surrounded by huge crowds in many areas of the tour
This team was very...
Jackie_A, Jun 2023
This team was very helpful and flexible for my group of 30 people visiting Italy for adidas Eurocamp! They made our time constraints work and showed us so much in a friendly and educational way. Can’t thank them enough for making our visit so special!
Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide
Saiful_K, Jun 2023
The best experiences anyone ever can expect with guided tour. Our 24 members tour guide was amazing explaining critical histories and evolving stories about Roman heritage and ancient stories including lot of questions from the guests. I hope he is compensated for his well structured and knowledge to share with tourists. Compare to this experience our June 15 Vatican tour was horrible and I reported to you Viator and you all should not be charging for the services that we did not get.
Very informative!
Susan_C, Jun 2023
Great tour - we skipped all the lines and our guide, Helena, was a wealth of knowledge. We could have gone on our own, but we would have walked away without knowing and understanding everything that happened during that time.
Great tour!
Michael_P, Jun 2023
You know the tour is great when it pours with rain in the middle and you don’t care. The guide brought Ancient Rome to life in an unvarnished fashion that balanced the glory and the horror.
Great tour guide
Michelle_R, Jun 2023
We had a great time with Alessandro! He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Having him as a tour guide definitely made the experience fun and exciting! We got to learn so much more than if we had just seen the colosseum, forum and palantine hill on our own.
