Good 3 hour overview tour with some minor confusion of what was included.
The tour was good but not entirely clear on the details. For instance, paying additional fees for the tour after already paying on line is frustrating. Also additional payment of $28 euros in only cash was also not convenient since we did not have time to find an atm. Also, the tour of the Pantheon is exterior only, no entry. This is a guided tour primarily of the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable but left to deal with the confusion for the booking and collection of cash. Read the fine print to ensure you know what your getting.

A Long Walk in Ancient Rome
Our tour with Judy was insightful. She gave us the background story and interesting details about the life of Imperial Romans. She touched on the architecture and a bit on some of the more modern aspects visible near the center of the ancient city. It is definitely an outdoor walking tour so good shoes, water hat and sunscreen are advised.

Total Disappointment
Total price for this experience will be much more than what is paid when you book it. Although in description it says entrance fee is not included no where before purchasing is available information how much this will cost in total! On top of tour price will be min of €23per person what adds up way too expensive for what they offer. Forget "guaranteed"skip the line what is mentioned twice in description, that will not happen. In pantheon (this is free admission to everyone anyway)you still have to stand in queue, same for Roman forum!
Official tour in colesseum with Roman forum included is €39, this tour total cost was around €60 at the end when they charge entrance fee before tour. Guide was rushing through the tour often walking way ahead. When i contacted Viator, and expressed my disappointment on whole experience and asked at least for partial refund as whole tour have been much more expensive than initially expected, was turned down. Don't waste your time and money there are much better tours available .

Enough to get a grasp of what is out there
Sep. 2021 • Solo
3 hours is very short but perfect to get a grasp of everything. Please mind we did not cover the Pantheon because of the lines (apparently even skip the lines can't skip the lines there?). Palatine hill at the FR instead. And you finish at the Colloseum rather than start there. Leaves you time after you finish to explore. Overall quality of tours in Rome was quite underwhelming and I found this to be no exception.

Dear valuable customer, First of all, i would like to thank you for taking time to write this email. I am sorry but, the "skip the line" is only for the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill s the Pantheon, does not have any "skip the line" system. There was none before the pandemic and not now during. Before the pandemic was announced, was faster and easier to get inside the Pantheon but, since they adopted the control check for "green card" (to check that everyone entering is been vaccinated), this has caused lines and sometimes those can be long as 1:45 minutes. The tour is 3 hours long and yes, sometimes we have no choice than avoid the Pantheon and add the Palatine Hill. Normally the Palatine Hill is not included in the tour but, as i mentioned above, if we cannot do the Pantheon due to the length of lines, we will include the Palatine Hill. I would like to thank you once again. Kind Regards Antonio

Step through time and experience old Rome
Mar. 2020
Our group of six had the great pleasure of doing this tour the day before the Colosseum and all of Rome shut down due to the coronavirus. Erturk helped us feel as though we stepped through time to experience old Rome. He was full of stories of gladiators and political intrigue and erased some misconceptions during our history lesson. When we got to the Pantheon, Erturk's true passion really shown. We learned so much about this incredible architectural wonder - I wish I could retain half of everything he said. My wife and I have done this tour in the past with a different guide that I thought did a good job until we toured again with Erturk. It was like being with a dynamic college professor. Thanks, Erturk, for a great tour!

Worth it for just skipping the lines alone
Feb. 2020
Great tour and especially beneficially skipping the lines that were still long even in February.
Lots of great information considering that all three attractions have little to no information provided unless willing to pay for audio guides, etc.
One negative is that the Pantheon is free to enter anyways so not much benefit in regards to skipping the lines there, though the information from our guide about it was greatly helpful.
