Great way to see two of Rome's highlights without having to commit to an all-day tour. Our tour guide was one of our favorites on our entire European trip. Highly recommend.
Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the Colosseum. However, I am only giving the tour 3 stars, because the Roman Forum portion of the tour was very brief and more limited in information. Information was shared near the entry to the forum, and just inside the entry, but that was it. Our guide then told us that was the end of the tour and that we could continue to explore on our own. The tour only physically encompassed a fraction of the acreage of the forum, such that we had to speculate on most of what we were seeing. And a word of warning for anyone who can't hold it for a long time the tour was almost 4 hours long, and there are evidently no public restrooms along the route. When I asked our guide 3 hours into the tour if there would be an opportunity for a restroom break, she seemed surprised and a little annoyed and said, it's only a 4-hour tour, so we don't plan for that, why? Is it an emergency? It was said with a smile, but came across a little condescending. We eventually found a small public restroom on our own inside the forum after the tour ended.
This was the best way to view the Colosseum and the Roman Forum! I have visited before and had to contend with the really long lines and not enough historical information. We were in a small group with no wait time for entry. The guide was a historian and knew his subject well. Every one of our questions was answered thoroughly. It was a much better experience this time and we learned a lot.
I would definitely book a Viator tour the next time I travel.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the stories he told bought the Colosseum and Roman Forum to life. Well worth the money.
The guide was lovely friendly, informative, articulate. A great way for a first-timer to get a handle on these overwhelming monuments in a couple of hours, even - especially - for our 9 year old! Definitely worth the outlay.
