Great Company, Amazing guide
Nov 2019
We booked our tour Colosseum Roman Forum and Palatine Hill: our guide spoke english perfectly, knew a lot of details and was really funny. We spent about 3 hours on the tour (there is a lot of walking involved!) and it was by far the best tour we did in Italy. The office is easy to find and the staff was very nice and helpful.Thank you guys!

Our guide brought the place to life with her stories and was very sweet, always willing to answer any questions the group had. Worked out perfectly and was just what I was looking for, no waiting in lines and well worth the extra expense!

Rude Staff and Inability to Give Directions!
Oct 2019
I will admit that we were not 20 minutes before the tour left but the tour had not left and we asked to join the group. Not only did they say no, they made us pay an additional $50 and then treated me like I was an idiot. I asked what the address was for the location for the following day of the Vatican tour. The girl says "L6" is the address. When I asked for something different than only "L6", she said "Don't you have a phone? Google? The Internet?". Then they proceeded to go outside and treat me like I could not understand English. It was a very humiliating experience and one that I would not recommend.

It was two young girls who were attending to the tour that day. We had spoken to a young man the day before and he seemed to be more professional. The two girls were the most demeaning people I have had to deal with in a long time.

In customer service, it is important that you give SERVICE! You do not EVER treat a client like they are not valued. Maybe this review will not impact your business but you should understand (you may be too young) that for every person you make angry, they tell 10 people. For every one person you please, they only tell one or two about the experience. Maybe you should do the math on the negative impact that your rude behavior toward paying clients.

Hello LisaRoatan, Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us on Trip Advisor. We are sorry to hear that the activity wasn't as expected. As stated on our vouchers the clients are supposed to reach the meeting point 20 minutes prior the departure time, and that the tour needs to depart sharp on time. We have different kind of tours every day, probably the group you saw at the office had a different tour. However we understand that lateness can happen and sometimes there are situation which we are not able to control, for these situation we offer to reschedule the activity applying just a rebooking fee, in order to cover the price of the tickets that we already paid for in advance for the whole group. We apologise if you felt our staff was rude, we are very surprised to hear that, we would be glad if you could send us a private email to info@romefuntour.com to better explain your experience, in order to investigate on this issue. Your feedback is important to us, as it helps us to keep improving the quality of our services. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon. Best regards, Diana

Don’t book with this company
Oct 2019 • Family
Total scam. Don’t book with this company . They will tell you that you are late and need to pay again cause the tour is fully booked and they did wait for you. And all other days are full as well. Don’t pay in advance.

Dear Meltem81, Thanks for taking the time to leave review on Trip Advisor. I am sorry to hear that the activity didn't meet your expectations. As stated on our vouchers the clients are supposed to reach the meeting point at least 20 minutes prior the departure time, and that the tour needs to depart sharp on time in order to respect the entrance time on the tickets. Once the group is inside the venue unfortunately there is no way to join it. This is why we are not able to accept late arrivals on our tours, this information can be found on our voucher as well. However we understand that lateness can happen, if there are free spots on other tours we have during our client's stay in Rome, we offer to reschedule the activity applying just a rebooking fee. Kind Regards Diana Fun Tour Team

Be Careful, Be Early
Sep 2019
We booked and paid in advance for 4 adults for a tour starting at 08.45hrs, we arrived at 08.17hrs, two of us waited in the long queue to register our arrival, by the time we got to the front of the queue we were told that we were too late to participate and would have to pay again to go on the next tour, we complained about having to pay again, surely we could join the next tour without paying, they would have none of it, we had to pay again! we reluctanly paid after travelling for two hours to get there.
On our return to the UK I wrote to complain and requested a refund, Fun Tours responded stating that we were late and would not reimburse us.
After reading other very recent reviews on Trip Advisor from others that exactly the same had happened to them, (having to pay twice) I decided to report them to the UK European Consumer Centre who are now investigating my complaint.
Please be aware they have told others that they were late and made them pay again, why should anyone have to pay twice.
Very interesting tour, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Dear Steven C, Thank you very much for having taken the time to post a review. From your comment we haven't been able exactly to understand what happened. Infact, it is impossibile that you could not attend the tour if you were at the meeting point at 8:17. In the voucher and description of the tour, it is clearly explained that customers have a mandatory meeting time stated 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time due to managing and organizational reasons. Please note that in the final price paid for a reservation for this tour includes everything from the skip the line access tickets, headsets, tax, insurance as well as the guide. Our guides leave the meeting point at the scheduled time which is specified on your confirmation voucher. Groups are not allowed to leave earlier. You are always due to check-in AT LEAST 15 min prior to the start of the tour so that everybody is ready once the group needs to leave the meeting point. At the time of booking it is well specified that it is not possible to have a refund in case of late arrival. Skip-the-line tickets for the Colosseum are scheduled and in the event of a delay or no-show, they are not refundable as are all other included services. However if lateness happen, our Coordinators at the meeting point and the Customer Care agents do their best to find an alternative solution, subject to tickets availability. Our policy states, that if you miss the entrance time, we need to apply a rebooking fee to cover the price of the tickets in order to reschedule the tour.l. Moreover we noticed that we gave your family an upgrade and you did a tour that included the Arena Floor, the cetral stage of the Colosseum, a restricted area of the venue that can't be seen in a regular Colosseum Tour like the one you booked. We are happy that you enjoyed the guided tour overall. Thank you very much for leaving us your feedback once again. Best regards, Diana Fun Tour Staff

We did the tour of the Colosseum, Paletine Hill and Forum Romanum. ALex was the guide on the last 2 stops and was AMAZING! Originally from NY he was fun, had good stories, movie clips, tips about where to stop for water on the tour (as it was very hot).

BEST Colosseum & Roman Forum tour!
May 2019 • Couples
We pre-booked a tour of the Colosseum and the Forum with a different company for a much higher price (55€ p.p). Unfortunately, on the day of the tour it was raining heavily and we were with a 6 months old baby with a stroller so we had to cancel that tour. We decided on simply walking up to the Colosseum to see what's what. We were greeted by several on-site guides that easily persuaded us to get a skip-the-line ticket for BOTH the Colosseum AND the Forum for 30€ p.p! What a deal! We were in line within 5 minutes of arriving on site and went on a 2 hours guided tour of the Colosseum. We were running a bit in a hurry after that to get to another tour of the Vatican so we self-guided our way through the Roman Forum. I want to give a shout-out to one of the FunTours employee that went all the way with us to get us through the line quickly. What an amazing service! Can't give this company enough credit!

Great experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
I booked the tour 48 hours before through tripadvisor/viator. Instructions were very clear. Fun tour’s staff is very organized. Our guide was Lilly and she did a great job with the history of the sites. The only thing I would recommend Lilly is to advise when the group should continue because she just started walking without saying through the radio. The tour was great and a great option especially during a busy season in Rome
