Colosseum-Forum
Sep 2021 • Couples
We booked this tour because of the recently opened underground area and we were not disappointed. We had 5 in our group and there was one other person so we had a lot of attention from our very experienced tour guide. We have been to the Colosseum before but this was our best and most complete visit. The visit with our guide to the Forum was very interesting also and even though we were tired from an earlier tour in the morning, we were glad we stayed for that part of the tour.

Great experience! The day before the Arena only has been close to visits. The agency Tours of Rome was very nice and professional by offering a lot of good alternatives, including full reimboursement. We took the tour anyway and the guide has been incredibly good, highly knowledgeable (he is an archeologist), nice and spent really a lot of extra-time in the tour in order to see other Parts of the Coliseum, as a compensation for the Arena. In fact, He took care of us for more than an extra-hour, with passion and a lot of competence. The agency is very reliable and helpful, all people are kind. The guide is top.

Great allround snapshot of iconic landmark of Rome
Oct 2019
I searched high and low for a tour of the Colosseum that skipped the line and covered all the aspects of the Colosseum without too much crowds and within limited time. Enter the Tours of Rome Colosseum Underground Tour with Arena Access and Panoramic Terrace. I found the initial communication from Tours of Rome very good in terms of answering questions I had about the tour, but once booked, the level of communication dropped off dramatically.
Our guide did their best in explaining the tour and history about the Colosseum but you do seriously underestimate how busy this place is and the amount of pick-pockets around. Thankfully, they took us to the skip the line area...which is a huge must...otherwise you will be lining up for ages.
Once in the Colosseum, our tour guide left us with some archeologist from the Colosseum who proceeded to explain the same information (with same diagrams) as our guide just did. I suspect it was to fill-in time while we waited for previous groups to finish as only so many people can go underground at a time. It seem to drag on a bit.
Once our tour began in earnest, it was fantastic, our Colosseum guide was very knowledgeable and answered many questions from the group and was also willing to take group photos for you. The Underground section was amazing including seeing the additional restoration work underway. The Area Floor was great where you really felt like a gladiator ready to salute to the Emperor. The best views however were at the Panoramic area, which was off-limits to the general public (which they did try to sneak through but were promptly stopped by the guide). At the top tiers, you really got a sweeping view of the whole Colosseum and surrounding Palatine Hill/Roman Forum and made for the best photo opportunities. That was sadly the end of the tour. Your ticket did allow you entry to the nearby Roman Forum and Palatine Hill to explore at your own leisure (which I really liked).
Overall, it's a good way to see all the highlights of the Colosseum in one tour. It's not the cheapest Colosseum tour, but if you enjoy history, but can't be bothered hanging around for another 2 hrs exploring Roman Forum, then this tour is for you.

Colosseum
Sep 2019 • Friends
It is a great tour with a VIP experience. Our guides were very helpful and attentive to look out for our best needs and interests.
They are very professional and with the VIP tour you aren’t amongst the big crowd in the upper and lower levels.
Above all, I’m still grateful to our tour guide Mido ....! We’ve got lost and were running late, but Mido did everything that was in his power to make sure we were along with the group. Thanks to him we did make it! Also many thanks to our tour members, for their patience and understanding.
I recommend everyone who wants to visit the Colosseum, to pay that little bit more and get the VIP tour, go back in time and be with the gladiators, slaves and animals, whom were responsible for the true spectacles at the Colosseum. Helena from Belgium.

Italian ticket scalpers
Jun 2019 • Family
First let me say, the underground tour of the coliseum is completely worth it! Second, tours of Rome is a sham. They are the Italian version of ticket scalpers in the USA. Basically, they buy up the tickets from the coliseum and resell them.

We arrived at the coliseum metro stop to meet our guide. He was a nice young man who told our small group it was his first time. He led us to the coliseum entrance. We all expected he was taking us inside. He told us to wait, he went inside to the ticket office and returned with stickers for us to wear. He then proceeded to walk us into the entrance. After another person from the coliseum appeared, the young man just disappeared. It was readily apparent that we had dealt with Italian ticket scalpers,

They’ve bought up all the supply and resold it did what I’m sure is a very healthy profit.

Hello, Thank You for reviewing the tour. we are glade that you liked the tour. as you said all was arranged very well, we sent our tour rep, you had a vip immediate entrance to Colosseum, and you visited all what you paid for. about reselling the tickets, this is something that no body can do, as we reserve the tickets and we have our archaeologist working inside the Colosseum. we don't why you consider tours of Rome as a shame, but we want to tell you that we organize tours for more than 50,000 visitors a year and you are the only travellers who has these considerations about us Best wishes

So, I thought this was a separate tour
May 2018 • Couples
Knowing how tricky it can be to get tickets through the Coop website, I jumped on this tour. From the description, I thought it was a separate tour. But turns out it is just a middle man who meets you at the Metro exit to then guide you to the official tour through the Colosseum. The person who met us wasn't even sure which line we needed to be in and then forced us to jump ahead of people in the "no wait" line. There was another couple on the "tour" and there was one ticket for the 4 of us to go to the Colosseum and Forum. Once we were at the gate, the operator told us where to go to meet the official tour and then we were on our own.

The official tour was fantastic but I feel totally misled about what I was paying for. And over paying for since the price of the official tour is considerably less than what I paid. And then the other couple and us had to go together to the Forum so we would be able to get in. They didn't have time to wait so we couldn't even get lunch in between things. It was very ackward

Sites were amazing and I highly recommend doing. Just not this particular "tour".

Hello, Thank you for your review and excuse us if we haven’t answered you soon. Actually the tour that you have booked is managed exclusively by a private association that only them has the exclusive right to have the keys of all the locked sections of the colosseum including undergrounds and upper tiers of the colosseum. Our tour guide met you and gave you an introduction about the tour then our tour operator accommodated you inside the colosseum. The day that you visited the colosseum was one of the most crowded days of the high season, this is why our tour leader asked if you can use exceptionally the group entrance, but they refused and advised to use the reserved entrance ( that had extremely long lines) our tour leader explained the situation for the staff of the colosseum and asked to allow you to get directly inside if not you would risk to lose your colosseum undergrounds, the internal staff allowed you to get inside ( doing a favor if not you would wait for 50 minuets in line and lose whole the tour) so clearly everything was after asking permission and without jumping in the line. You tour DID NOT INCLUDE THE ROMAN FORUM TICKETS as a good gesture our tour leader made you the second favor to give you the group tickets to go to the forum even if it’s not something that we should do. The ticket of coop are sold out before being even put in sale, so we buy them from third parties buying sometimes the triple price just not to cancel the tour for our clients, however we haven’t asked you any extra money and you have already purchased the tour with this price and we organized the tour as promised and you said that you had a wonderful tour inside and this is what you always try to do Best wishes Tours of Rome
