Highly recommended tour to get to know the coliseum deeply along with the other visiting areas that it influences. The guide Paolo was very professional with great knowledge of every single detail. At the same time that it clarifies any doubt that may arise. Making the tour very enjoyable and dynamic. A GREAT GUIDE.

This was a wonderful tour! Dennis was amazing! He was helpful, funny, and so knowledgeable! Seriously, the amount of information he shared was astounding! This tour was great to explore all of the Colosseum, the Forum, and Palatine Hill. Truly worth every penny! I'd highly recommend this tour if you want to learn a lot and see everything!

Ok - I have mixed reviews about this whole experience with get your guide BUT the tour itself and our guide were fantastic. The underground is worth it for sure. My issues are with the instructions we were provided. It said “You must exchange your voucher at the ticket center to join the tour” so we went to where the ticket centre used to be apparently at the entrance to find out we are supposed to go back to the meeting point (this is a 10-15 minute walk away). Needless to say we missed our tour and we’re not provided another tour that day or even an apology that the instructions were wrong. The guide company has the tickets and you don’t need to go to the ticket centre at all. We did the tour the next day and had to pay an additional 90 euros!
