This tour was very informative and the views are amazing. It is crowded so you will have to be around people. I don’t think there is a colosseum tour that isn’t crowded. This tour does not go into the bottom cells of the colosseum. I wish it did but for the money we paid it was a very good tour. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable.

Enjoyed this tour a lot and loved hearing the history of area. The day was extremely hot though and maybe because of that the tour seemed to focused a lot more on the Roman forum and palatine hill than the coliseum and therefore seemed to drag on at the end. Overall still recommend this tour

The tour allowed us to skip all lines and covered the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. We did the tour on a very hot day which I would not recommend. We could not spend much time in the actual Collesseum and most of the tour explained the history of the location and what it would have looked like. The guide was very knowledgeable, however, sometimes they did not capture my attention.
