Immaculate Tour with Giovanna
Sep. 2021 • Friends
THIS TOUR WAS IMMACULATE.

Today I went with two of my friends to the Roman Colosseum and to the Roman Forum. We wanted to see it from inside but we were not aware that for that you have to buy tickets in advance. A man asked us whether we were interested in a guided tour. It cost 20€. As we only had 1.5h of time before having to fetch our train we wanted to see both Colosseum and Roman Forum in about an hour. The man who sold us the tickets promised that we could make it in a single hour.

The tour turned out to be more than two hours long which if we had not had to leave would have been even more perfect. Sadly we could not see the Colosseum anymore.

Tip: Consider asking the tour guide themself about the length of the trip if you only have limited time availible.

About the 5 stars and the tour guide:

Our guide was Giovanna. A perfect mix between funny, informative and quick-witted. She perfectly managed to give you as much information as possible in a short period of time without her leaving you confused or hurried. She immaculately balanced breaks and pauses to take pictures or to rest with fun stories, annectodes and general information about the place and ancient times.
At the beginning she is diligent about helping the guests create an overview about the diferrent time periods which took place from rise to fall of the Roman empire.

Giovanna is passionate and exceptionally well informed. Her English is flawless and it is nice to see her Italian streak come through.

100% would recommend and I will come back to see the Colosseo next time.

I would totally recommend this tour. I enjoyed it a lot. Our guide, Walid was extremely nice, funny and knowledgeable about the history of the Colosseo. It was very easy to book, and the meeting point was easy to find. It's a serious company that will help you navegate the Colosseo and Rome.

Poor value
The tour started about 45 minutes late; once we started we spent another 20 minutes outside the colosseum before we even went inside. Once we were inside, we zipped by all of the displays and didn’t go to the lowest level. None of the people in our tour group continued with the guide to the Forum. We won’t be able to get to the Forum before our ticket expires in 24 hours, so we basically wasted 45 euros booking through this company rather than on our own. You’re better off buying your own tickets and exploring on your own as the lines aren’t very long right now.

Dear customer, We are sorry for the inconvenience sir I am sorry that you had some problem during the tour. The delay was because of the change in opening timings from the Colosseum. The second point which you mentioned about going to the lower level (underground) for the moment it's closed it will open from 26th June 2001 and you booked for the regular tour which does not includes the lower level. we always try to satisfy our customers but unfortunately sometimes the problem is because of the limited capacity of colosseum. I hope you will understand that the tour you booked was not underground. Again we are sorry that you were not satisfied with our tour and I hope this explanation clarifies the issue. For any further information please feel free to contact us. Best regards.
