I expected the addition of the underground and restricted upper level tour to be compelling, and it simply wasn't. Frankly, the entirety of the Colosseum tour was underwhelming. The underground portion included a single room, and the upper portion, a single terrace. It was a slow and uninteresting presentation. I couldn't shake the feeling that I was touring a construction site, with screening, boarding, and scaffolding throughout.

However, part of the tour included a visit to the Forum, about which I was initially uninterested. Giovanni led a well-paced. compelling tour around the potentially confusing Forum grounds, with deep knowledge and personal charm.

I would highly recommend the Forum tour, but skip the Colosseum part, skim a guidebook, and visit on your own.

The tour itself was excellent. Told to be at the meeting place incorrect time. Also second tour of Roman Forum not scheduled correctly. Tour was delayed, we didnt get a full tour. Both tour guides were excellent. Poor orginisation not their fault.

We learned a lot of interesting facts about the Colosseum that are somewhat exaggerated in movies...Other things that are not even mentioned in a movie. Seeing the underground was by far worth every penny and I must admit that the costs were not unreasonable. Views from the upper level were spectacular. If you have problems with stairs it will be a challenge however, there is an elevator that can get you to some of the levels. When making your arrangements just ask what you can get to. I have difficulties with stairs but I managed with help in some of the areas where the lift wont get you. Our guide Mrs.S Agnese (I believe her name was Sarah) was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English. She took the time to explain everything and answered questions when asked. Standing in awe within the bricks of this magnificent structure was something we will never forget.

Evis was our tour guide and simply blew us away with how much incredibly detailed knowledge she had.

Great experience, so glad we did the underground tour. I think we got to see and learn much more than a typical tour
