Scammers
I booked two time this guided tour ,and in both times no one showed up the first time I got a call from the tour guide saying the tour stated at 4:30 pm instate of 5 pm (5 pm was the original time I booked the tour for ) so he said since you will not be able to make it ,just book the tour one more time and I will give and extra tour to were the gladiators use to fight,so I did buy tickets for the next day at 6 pm since all the other times were booked ,the next day I got there at 4 pm and I waited until 6:45 pm no one showed up and the guy wasn't answering my calls, so I believe it was a scam stay away from this tour

First of all you have booked a timed ticket and not a tour. As it is a timed ticket you have to show up on time. You seem to understood your mistake and then you booked the next day, the same ticket. This time you came on time and 30 minutes afterwards you asked for a refund, saying there was nobody in the office. I believe you are the scammer as you got the tickets from us and then asked a refund, saying there was no ticket.

Great Colosseum and Roman Form tour experience!
We were delighted to be Stefano’s first tour group of the Colosseum and Roman Forum since Italy’s post-COVID reopening. Traveling as a family of 5 with 2 teenagers and a toddler, Stefano offered a great and comfortable experience. The radio earbuds we were all issued for the tour allowed us to hear Stefano’s awesome knowledge of the history of the sites, while we could all spread out (or if we fell behind with our little one!) He was also kind in offering to take photos of our group and offering local restaurant recommendations. I recommend this tour group!

Disappointing
So disappointing to see how much other have enjoyed their tour when ours was so terrible! We came on the 2nd of Jan at 2.30 for a colosseum tour. We waited in a queue for 15 minutes which I understand can’t be helped but when the tour got cut short 15 minutes early (only actually had 30 minutes with the guide) I was pretty annoyed! We paid €44 each and felt the whole tome we were being rushed around without actually being given any information and when we were brought out onto the second floor the guide pointed out the exit stairs and collected up the headsets and said he had to go. The whole group were understandably annoyed. I can honestly say I don’t feel I learnt anything from the tour.
