“Guided tour only way to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We had a guided tour from Dark Rome Tours for our visit to the Coliseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. Our guide was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She did a great job of getting all the info from our sites to us so that we were kept interested the entire time. Skipping the huge lines was a great help and well worth the money. We were also allowed to go to the lower level of the Coliseum which only few get to do.

We were very pleased with the entire visit and highly recommend this group for all your Tours in Rome and other sites.

“Use a guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Highly recommend a guided tour, which was not much more than you would pay for queuing, and with the guide you get in preferentially. The guide was in any case excellent and informative

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We had hoped to get our tickets at a ticket area near the Colosseum,but it was closed. Due to construction .The line to purchase tickets was enormous! We decided to take one of the several tours from people in the crowd .It was. A great move,we payed more than the entrance rate but it was worth it.The tour guide was very good,and when we had to do the second part a young man took over and he was EXCELLENT.Found out he had worked for National Geographic,and he was so informative and funny. If we had to do it over again ,I would of bought tickets ahead of time ,you by pass the long line.

“Colosseum tour guide - access to underground & third level”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We booked our tickets on-line through the Colosseum website a few days in advance and for 23 euro we were able to skip the long queue - we took our printed sheet to the Reservations Office, received a ticket and met our tour guide at the nominated time. We did the underground tour and also the third level (which is only accessible to the Colosseum tour groups). We had a lovely, very informative guide (Francesca) and it was great value for money. Highly recommend.

“Amazing history!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Just to stand on these grounds is amazing! We booked a tour with Dark Rome which included all these great sites. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had interesting stories. There is so much history that you can easily lose yourself in all of it. A guided tour is a must if you want to know more.
