Crown Tours arranged this private tour with David for the 4 of us. We had a wonderful and informative visit. Access and movement throughout the underground area is limited and monitored closely. David conferred with the staff often to insure our small group had privacy and ample time to stop and discuss the various points of interest as we wandered through the maze of spaces beneath the colosseum floor. We toured each of the levels above ground open to the public and then ventured up to the Forum. David has extensive knowledge of history, construction and cultures that influenced the design and building of this mammoth space. A wonderful guide who left us with great memories on this special tour.

Thanks Barbara for a very enjoyable and informative tour!
The Colosseum as expected is awesome and with your passion we were able to almost put ourselves in the position of both Emporers and Gladiators as we followed in there footsteps!
The Palantine Hill and Roman Forum parr’s of the tour were good but became a little repetitive towards the end!
I would certainly recommend this guide!

When we arrived at 9.00 o’clock we were told our tour was already in the colosseum, PLEASE be carful, this was lies as we were told we should have arrived at 8.30 but only in the small print does it say meet 15mins before so looking at how fast they process you the group had only just left. It takes about 7 to 10 mins to get into the colosseum so we could have easily made our group. They do this so they can recharge you, we were one of 7 couples / families who had arrived at the time in the email as it’s meant to mislead !!! THIS IS A CON !! BEWARE.

I did similar tours a few weeks ago with my daughter and other companies give you a meeting time, this surprising works rather well as it’s not setting you up to fail.

Once we had paid another £85.00 pounds we then got Roberto !! What a fantastic guide and lovely man. His knowledge & passion were truly wonderful. We shared our tour with a Swiss couple whom I am sure were equally as pleased. He would enrich anybodies tour he is a definite 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Do you ever go see something new and your spouse or kids or friends ask you all about it as if you spent 100hrs researching the place before showing up? Well mine do, and since I don't spend 100hrs researching ahead of time, I get a tour with a guide whenever we go somewhere new.

Nicola was incredibly knowledgeable. Not just about ancient Rome, but about much of world history. He asked us and the other couple where we were from when we arrived at the start of the tour (U.S. for us, Netherlands for them) and would make things relatable to our countries' histories or keep our interest with jokes about Roman history relevant to current events back home.

With the underground portion, the Colosseum uses its own employees to give a tour included with headsets for the guests and microphone for the guide. While some 3rd party guides may leave during this time and meet you above ground, Nicola stayed with us and gave us additional information the site guide left out. Nicola also brought visual props to better explain with pictures what things would have looked like during 1st century AD. Many folks not in our group would hang around to listen to what Nicola had to say and he was very polite to include them.

Above ground/above the stage, we were given a 15-20min historical lesson by Nicola, a continuation of what he had started before entering the building. We then moved throughout the displays inside the Colosseum concourse and out to the seating area, all the while provided narration by Nicola and pointing out interesting subjects I would have otherwise missed without the guide.

At the Roman Forum, it was much the same experience with our guide. So much information was shared we would have not know with only the informational signs. Nicola used the position of the Roman Forum to point out other important sites around Rome, while providing historical relevance to our group, e.g., American history tied to WWII, Rome's impact on the Netherland monarchy of the time, etc.). At the end of the tour we were given his card and he offered to help provide dining suggestions for the rest of our stay or offer any other assistance while we were in Rome.

Overall we began at 11:15a and finished at 3:30p (15:30). It was an amazing experience and I don't know if I would have been able to appreciate it as much without our wonderful guide!

***Regarding Crown Tours administrative side, the check-in area was easy to identify at the Colosseum with the employees' purple shirts. They had our information ready for easy check-in and told us ahead of time to make sure to have all COVID-19 related screening items. Of the three tours we did while in Rome, this one made it the easiest to know where to go, what to bring, and that we had arrived in the correct spot when we showed up.***
