It was great. Kids really enjoyed it, and so did the parents. Titus was our instructor and he was amazing and made the kids have so much fun. He also knew so much about gladiators.

If you have young kids, I think this is worth it. But, if you are an adult only party, or one with older teens who fashion themselves as being mature (we were five with our youngest being 18), this experience is not for you. Being...More

It was fun. We did learn a lot about roman soldiers and gladiators fighting technics. As for the physical training part of the tour, it was ridiculous in a way, but great if you have kids. Otherwise, book this without any expectation in mind but...More

If you have kids (or even if you don't), this is a must do. Our kids, ranging from ages 12-17 had a great time. There were a lot of laughs and the kids were wiped out. David, our Gladiator trainer, was engaging, and funny. You...More
