If you don’t have a tour guide, you’re missing out!
Sep 2021
My wife and I wanted to do a small group experience at the colosseum. Our travel guide scheduled us with Roma Experience. Our tour guide was Elisa. She met us just outside the coliseum. It was a really small group, just my wife and I. I was so glad to get all that personal attention! Elisa has a degree is archeology. She worked in and around the colosseum as an excavator for a few years. She was very knowledgeable about the area. She explained the underground tunnels and how the animals were brought up to the staging area. She showed us on her iPad how things probably looked back in that era. We also toured Palestine Hill and the Roman Forum. It was a very informative tour. I highly recommend having a tour guide when coming to the Colosseum. There is so much to take in. I think Elisa is a great choice to guide you.

Great Tour of the Colosseum
Jul 2019 • Family
Our guide was excellent, well informed and efficient, got us in and through with no hassle. The small group was great. It gave us a very good picture of what life was like in ancient Rome. It was nice for the privileged, not so nice for the poor and slaves. The sheer size and construction of the Colosseum is mind boggling.

Dear wayneg512, Incredible hm, how they managed to built such an impressive building without todays technology! Roman architecture and history are so astonishing and we are glad having had to oppotunity to take you around these breath-taking sights. Great to read you enjoyed our Tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and it gave you an idea what life was like back in the days. We hope you will consider Roma Experience for your future visits, and would be honoured to show you more of our beautiful country.

We had a fantastic private tour with Mary (Maria). Her historical knowledge of the area was amazing and she made Ancient Rome come alive for us with her explanations of daily life in and around the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. It was an experience we won't forget. Thank you Mary!

My first trip to Rome started with an absolutely fantastic tour of the Colosseum and Forum. Our guide, Beatrice, was energetic, enthusiastic, and extremely informative. She was able to educate and motivate our group throughout. Even through jet lag in my case. If i could, I'd book her again whenever possible. Great Job!!!!

The jetlag is a little easier to overcome being surrounded by such beauty, isn't it? Beatrice will be informed of your lovely review, and reading how she has been so enthusiastic and informative makes us proud to have her on board. When returning to our beautiful city feel free to drop us a message and we can see if Beatrice is available to show you some more of Rome's spots not to be missed!

Santi Was an AMAZING Tour Guide
Sep 2018 • Couples
We had a wonderful morning at The Colosseum! Santi was a very friendly and extremely knowledgeable tour guide who helped make the day unforgettable!!! We would HIGHLY recommended a guided tour as it made the experience even more meaningful and try to book in a morning tour to avoid the hot afternoon sun! Strongly recommended and thanks so much to the wonderful Santi!!!

Dear Joshua R, Another praising review for Santi! Amazing to read he has been able to make your day unforgettable and was very informative. In the summer it might indeed be a good suggestion to join the morning tour, as in the afternoons the Italian sun can take the overhand. Unless of course, you'd like to be sure you get a free tan along with your Colosseum visit = ) Luckily there are water fountains located near the sites visited. As for Santi, I will personally make sure he gets to read your kind words! Thank you again for taking the time to share your positive feedback.

Couldn't have been better!
Jun 2018 • Friends
I booked a tour of the Colosseum with Roma Experience after my brother recommended them (he did a tour with them years ago). It was the third tour we took while in Italy and I wish it had been our first - I would have re-booked the others with Roma Experience, too. After an overly crowded, uninformative tour at the Vatican, I highly regret not going with Roma Experience. I wish I had known how good they were earlier. Our guide was Arianna and she was fantastic! Very knowledgable and friendly and very accommodating to everyone in our group.

Dear Emily, Than you for posting your review of our service on TripAdvisor. We are so happy you had such an amazing time with our guide Arianna at the Colosseum-Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and we really hope you will let us know whenever you are planning to come back to Italy in the future! So much more to explore in Rome, Florence, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast!!!

Excellent experience
Jul 2018 • Family
My husband, three kids, and I did the three-hour tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Forum. We highly recommend not only Roma Experience but also our guide, Federico Di Matteo. He was personable and relaxed, hugely knowledgeable (his previous career was as an archaeologist), and even entertaining. He was able to answer our questions along the way, and roll with the punches of our active kids. There was only one other family on the tour (with two grown children), and the small group made things move smoothly.

Dear Meir G, Thank you for sharing your opinion about Roma Experience on Trip Advisor, we are glad to know our guide Federico provided a fantastic tour and managed to keep alive the interest of adults and kids! We will make sure he receives your compliments - please let us know when you come back to Italy - we'd be happy to have your family as our guests again. We might organize a tour of Ostia Antica, the Vatican or even trips to Florence and Pompeii!

We will never forget this tour! Our tour guide Beatrice was amazing! Her knowledge and presentation was excellent! To be inside the Colosseum and tour Palatine Hill was worth every penny. We were traveling with our daughter's college soccer team and everyone on the tour loved it!

Paula was excellent
Aug 2017 • Family
On our first day in Rome we booked a tour of the Colosseum through the hotel we were staying at. A few hours later Paula was giving us a great tour of the Colosseum, the surrounding grounds, and the Palatine hill. After seeing my group was pretty familiar with ancient Rome, she ramped up the detail of her tour. We learned where past restorations had occurred, what the assorted arches meant and she even showed us where Julius Caesar was cremated. I highly recommend Paula to anyone visiting Rome.
