What people are saying about Colosseum Underground

Really enjoyable and informative tour. Our tour guide Augustino was so much fun and helpful to all of us. Really good value and would definitely recommend to anyone. I would’ve preferred to spend more time in the colosseum but even with this we saw so much.

María Elena was phenomenal. She is very knowledgeable and very accommodating. We have a 2.5 year old with a stroller and she went through routes that were accommodating. Great tour and would definitely do it again!!

Elena was so engaging! I was entertained and informed for the whole 3 hours! Having an expert archaeologist take you around was pretty special! Thank you for everything!

Very professional guide (Alexandra), engaging and knowledgeable, flexible in terms of presentation based on the group needs.

Great experience with Rosa, our guide. Fully recommended
