We had a fabulous tour of both the Colosseum and the Roma Forum with Gladiator Tours. Picked up outside the Colosseum after buying our tickets (12 Euro per adult) for both locations ( Colosseum and Forum) at the Roma Forum ticket office owing to a smaller queue, we paid another 18 Euros per person for the tours; the best 54 Euros spent. The tours get you in ahead of the normal queues saving approx 2hrs waiting in line. Although a little chaotic in actually finding a tour with the rep, once sorted it was only a 15 minute wait before we started our tour of the Colosseum, and it was fabulous! We couldn’t have learned so much about the Colosseum on our own, even with a guide book, and following the tour we were able to stay a little longer to take more photo’s before picking up a later tour of the Forum after a spot of lunch.
We were met by the Forum guide, Stan, who guided us through the second part of our tour and he was brilliant. He explained everything in a very straight forward manner and add a different perspective on the history. He was also amusing and engaging with all of the audience.
Overall, a brilliant day out and highly recommended if you want to get the best out of your visit.

I did two tours with them and both were great! Their price for the tour packages were reasonable and worth every euro! Elaine was amazing, she’s very knowledgeable and had such an upbeat personality! The tours helped learn more about the place and it allowed us to skip the line!

Skipping the queues with a Gladiator Tour of the Coliseum is a good move, more so when you throw in a "free" tour of the Roman Forum.
Our guides were good, particularly Elaine, a Canadian escaping the cold who gave us a very lively time at the Forum.
Having access to areas that normal paying customers do not is good for time and space and better photos.

We had 2 tour guides from this agency. The lady, whose name I believe was Victoria a long brown haired very lovely knowledgable woman and a Canadian tall guy called Stan. Both enjoyable and pretty detailed with the information. You get what you pay.

We decided to do a tour of the Colosseum with Gladiator Tours at the last minute after seeing the huge queue to get in if you want to go by yourself. The ticket means you skip the queue for the Colosseum and also get entry to Paletine Hill and the Forum. Unfortunately I can’t remember our tour guide’s name but she was really informative and upbeat and seemed really passionate about the history of the Colosseum and the city. We got to walk around the bottom of the arena, apparently reserved for guided tours only, which lets you appreciate the sheer scale of the place.

Switched to a different tour guide for the Paletine Hill and Roman Forum section of the tour which was equally as enjoyable, lots of interesting information and killer photo opportunities. At the end you have free time to explore the Forum by yourself and in total we spent around 3 and a half hours there in total. Would recommend using Gladiator Tours if you don’t want to queue and want to hear about the history of what you’re seeing.
