Informative and enjoyable tour with knowledgeable tour guide
Sep 2021
Amil Viruega, our private tour guide, was fabulous. The tour was one of a kind and to see the floors below the main forum was very interesting. Amil speaks perfect English and is very easy to understand. The walking headsets work wonderful as well. Questions were posed along the way and Amil was very knowledgeable considering her college history degree. We would highly recommend this tour and Amil.

Perfect tour
Jun 2019
We didn't have a lot of time to spend in Rome but wanted to experience the Colosseum. This 90 minute tour was perfect for us. The meeting point was easy to find and the check-in process was very efficient. There were a total of 10 in the group. Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We went in June and it's best to do the Colosseum tour in the morning because of the hot weather and there isn't much shade at the Colosseum. The tour started on the arena floor and continued onto the second tier. Great view and perspective from both places!

Super Matteo!!
Absolutely loved this tour. Myself and 7 others (50th Birthday party) had the pleasure of touring the Colosseum and Forum with the brilliant Matteo.

We were treated to wonderful insight into the history of Rome and the growth of an Empire.

Entering through the Gladiator entrance and ending on the Palatine Hill some 3 hours later, we hung on every word!

Thoroughly enjoyable, brilliantly engaging and totally recommended!!! Grazie Mille Matteo!!

Top tour
We had a private tour of 8 people and booked the gladiator entrance including the forum and palatine hill. Matteo, our guide was absolutely brilliant. We learnt so much, he had lots of enthusiasm, engaged with us all and the tour didn’t seem like 3hrs. I can’t recommend enough. It was the highlight of our trip. A special 50th birthday for my husband and one he will never forget. Thank you Matteo.

Get in touch with Colosseum through The Gladiators Eye

Excellent guided tour to Colloseum through Gladiators Entrance. Experience Colloseum and its small details as seen through The Gladiators fighting Eyes. The tour explains how Gladiators entered The arena to fight his destiny. A must for Roman lovers.

Amazing Guide
Feb 2019 • Family
Diego was our guide. He was a fountain of information and took time to answer questions. Tour started a bit late -- I think we were waiting for people to show up. Anyway, once he started the tour, I was amazed at all there was to know. Ancient politics, all the hows and the whys. We reached the forum 1 minute late and were locked out. One minute! Diego was more than apologetic. He handled the situation with grace and offered to renew the tour the next day or offer a walking tour of Rome. We took the walking tour. Wow! Diego spent the next 3 hours showing us Rome. Diego knew so much. He made history come alive. We understood what we were seeing instead of just walking by and thinking it was cool. I would definitely recommend this tour and ask for Diego.
