We had an amazing time on this tour. Our three children range from 9-19 and all three of them really enjoyed this tour. We would all do this again.

If you haven't seen the Colosseum, then you haven't seen Rome. It's a must see. We were glad we were part of a tour group with a knowledgeable guide (Alessandro) giving us insightful info throughout the tour. The tour was evenly paced and interesting, and it was a big plus that our guide spoke very good English with good pronunciation... More

First things first - if you are looking at a tour on Viator - or on Dark Rome or on several other websites they are all City Wonders Tours. I don't know why they keep changing names but no matter who you book through you end up here. We booked two tours with them Vatican After Dark and the Night... More

Today we had our general tour of the Vatican and I was extremely disappointed. This tour I found completely disappointing and wish I did not waste my time taking a tour through Dark Rome and City Wonders Throughout the entire tour I felt as though our tour guide was struggling to put her thoughts into English and had difficulties explaining...

I joined a tour "Roman Countryside Vineyards and Wine Tasting" and really enjoyed it. The guide was very pleasant and caring, the explanation was very interesting, the bus journey was very practical, and the coutryside, the vineyards and the celler were as good as the photos. All the wines we tasted had good quality. It was a very memorable day.

A MUST use for skip-the-line. Very easy meeting spots and the best, most informative guides available. No better way to learn about this amazing place.

We booked 2 tours through Viator for the Vatican and for Ancient Rome (both half day tours, done on separate days). For the Vatican, it was a little disorganised and they had SO many tours going on that it was really confusing trying to figure out where we were supposed to go, who we were supposed to talk to etc....

The night tour was absolutely beautiful! We happened to be there on a full moon which only added to the beauty. Anyone wanting to escape the crowds and heat during a day tour should take this night tour. Although it was still hot at night, it wasn't nearly as hot as a daytime tour and significantly less crowded. Our tour... More

The Colosseum was fascinating and is a must see if in Rome. Take the tour to learn the history of the Colosseum.
