This tour was excellent! Our tour guide was FABULOUS!!! She was very very very knowledgeable. Being a former archeologist gave her insight that she was able to share with us, where many people miss out. She also would show us the ancient pictures so we could get a fell of where we were standing and how it was back then. Loved that there were only 4 of us in our group. That was well worth the cost! Would use this company again and will recommend it to friends and family.

This tour was amazing. The guides are archaeologists that know the history and demonstrate their passion through the tour. I highly recommend this tour.

Worth every penny to avoid the queues and get to see the parts of the Colosseum you wouldn't do normally, especially the underground areas. However, having a tour with a guide whose knowledge of all Roman history, not just in relation to the Colosseum, was so good made the experience really come alive in a way that just wouldn't be possible if we'd walked around on our own. A definite high point on our recent holiday.

The Colosseum Underground is a great extension to a visit to the Colosseum. You get to see the pulley used to haul people, freight and animals to the stage floor and the system for getting water to flood the stage for water exhibits,

The small group was the best way to go! Louise gave us plenty of personal attention outside of the Colosseum in the Forum and surrounding areas. It was a totally private guide full of interesting information. In the Colosseum we were combined with a larger group but the group was lead by one of the archaeologists attached to the Colosseum. He took us from bottom to the top and then set us free to stay as long as we liked. There was no rush and you could ask as many questions as you wanted.
