We booked a tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum with Real Rome Tours on the strength of previous reviews and let me start by saying we were not disappointed. Ferdinando our tour guide made ancient Rome come alive with his outstanding knowledge and obvious love for the subject matter. Throughout the tour Ferdinando used photos, and drawings backed up by historical accounts to allow us to picture things as once they were. While the cost of this tour was slightly higher than some of the others I can not recommend it enough. To be able to stand in the middle of the arena (off limits to all but those on these small group tours) and look out around you as gladiators would have done almost 2000 years ago is awe inspiring! 10 out of 10 for the tour and for Ferdinando our guide.

We took two tours with Dario of Real Rome tours and had an excellent experience both times. We highly reccomend them as they are extremely knowledgeable and personable and try to give you the best tour for the time available.

Will be using Real Rome tours again if we return to Rome.

Ferdinando brought along files to explain the history and gave us a lot of context to help us enjoy the visits. Can't ask for more, thanks!

Our guide, Dario, was excellent. Extremely knowledgable and engaging, a very small group too so a real personal guided tour.
We didn't have to queue and had access to both the underground area and upper level that not everyone gets to see. Seeing the Colosseum was an amazing experience and made better by having Dario to give us all the history and anecdotes was great. Not a cheap tour but definitely great value.
