We were advised by people we had met in Venice, to take a guided tour around the Colosseum and the Roman Ruins as it makes all the difference.... And I couldn't agree more! Our tour guide was Alessandro who had a great depth in knowledge so no question went unanswered and he was passionate about it too, which on a... More

I would summarise this as an art history talk, beautiful scenary and a little taste of Italy outside Rome. Lovely towns and some good shopping (if that's what you want), just not enough time. Lunch is basic.

Recently went on the Colosseum at night tour in Rome. Met our guide a ways away at Trajans column, which I thought was an odd starting point for a Colosseum tour. The tour company provided excellent directions on meeting time and location. Our guide was very knowledgeable. She spoke English, but with a slight accent. The headsets worked well and... More

We booked the walking underground tour of the Colosseum. Frabrezio was eager to share his wealth of knowledge with us. We were like VIP. We got to see places not normally visited . We also booked the Vatican Sistine VIP experience and was so wonderful with our guide David. He was knowledgeable and funny. We were able to view the... More

A long tour but absolutely a must to fully understand these historical gems. Wear comfortable shoes and bring some water and a camera.

Loved this wee tour. Lasted an hour and a half but was an easy enough walk for my elderly mother. Our tour guide Louise was great company too. Great way to see Rome at night. Definitely recommend.

I booked the night ghost tour of Rome after hearing great things about City Wonders. We turned up to find no one there! We were in the correct location at the correct time - and even had locals verify this - but unfortunately after waiting 20 minutes no one showed up. I contacted City Wonders for a refund and they...

We weren't disappointed with the guided tours we chose during our short trip to Rome. Small groups, guides who are interested in their subjects and go above and beyond for their customers. Bravo.

Whilst it is almost essential to use a tour, if you are going to a) skip the queues (which are massive) b) understand the best you can from the attraction - I could NOT recommend City Wonders Tours. The tour of the Colosseum was good but the guide they used was a well meaning young Italian girl with quite adequate... More
