      Small group tour of Colosseum and Forum
      Had an amazing tour today with Gianluca, tour guide from Eyes of Rome tour. He had lots of knowledge and stories to tell. We were super impressed with underneath the Colosseum and the stories of animals and gladiators! Afterwards we went to the Forum and found out all about the history of Rome. Also, Gianluca was very considerate of how hot the temperature had become and gladly sheltered us with shade whenever possible. We would highly recommend this tour! We booked through TUI but I’m sure you can book from other sources.

      Excellent review of the history of St Peter’s Basilica. I greatly enjoyed seeing the intricate mosaics, breathtaking sculptures and the bodies of the popes of the past.

      Disappointed but good
      Well, our underground tour got cancelled . They rescheduled us on the Gladiator tour - Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill Guided Tour- other than our tour guide being late. The tour was good - we skipped the line at colosseum - practically walked right in. Our tour guide Francesca was very good, informative and knowledgeable. (3 stars because our tour got cancelled- the tour we went on I would recommend if you don’t care about the underground) -Crown Tours-

      Great tour
      This tour was awesome! Nicoletta was a great tour guide, very patient, and informative. We learned a lot of history while visiting the Coliseum, Palentine Hill, and the Forum. The tour company was in contact with us through email , texts, and phone calls updating our excursion. I highly recommend this tour.

      Absolutely LOVED this tour!
      Francesca was our guide and she was brilliant, she knew so much about the history of everything we went to go and see and gave us advice about where to get the best pictures etc. She was brilliant, and there is sooooo much history to Rome, it is all fascinating.

      The Colosseum is epic and amazing!
      The Colosseum is epic and amazing to tour and view in itself. I booked a couple of months ahead of time. Booking with a tour company is the only way you can get to the underground areas so that is why I book with Tourkis. A few weeks before the scheduled date we were notified that the underground was not going to be available during the tour "but you can view them from the Arena area". Not much I could do at this point so we stuck with it. We did receive a small refund for a portion of our ticket prices. We arrive at the meeting point about 20 minutes early and waited for the entire group the get there. There was about 22 people in our group. We started a bit later than scheduled (3pm) & it seem that the 3 or 4 Tourkis representatives where debating who was to conduct the tour. Ahmed lost and got to show us around for three hours. We started with the Forum area. Luckily there was not a long line to get through security. Ahmed was very knowledgeable and described the sites very well. It was a hot July afternoon and he was considerate and tried to find shady spots for the group to stand while he told us the history of what we were looking at. He made everything very interesting and gave vivid examples of what it would have looked like when it was a functioning venue. The guide gave us time for a break to use the WC and get drinks from a vending machine. He wasn't quite clear as the time and place to regroup. Unfortunately there were not a lot of places to sit and rest. Most of us stood around in the heat waiting for him to come back. The break went a little too long (30+ min.) and the guide was no where to be found. A lot of the people in the group were wondering if he was going to come back. He did! and then we headed to the colosseum. The security line was very short and we got right in. We started with the arena area. Got time for pictures and then our guide took us to a shaded area just outside the arena where we sat or stood for what seemed like a very long time just listening to him describe other areas of the monument and the history of each. The information was great but I would have rather been walking around and seeing the place instead of sitting in one spot just looking at printed pictures he had in a binder for over 45 minutes. We were then taken to the second level and set free. We got to explore a bit on our own and take fabulous pictures. Visiting the colosseum while in Rome is a must. If you decide to book a tour, I hope your tour is wonderful! If anything, just get the entry ticket online to skip the ticket line as it gets very long. Understandably, you must still go through the security line. But one line is better than two.

      Scam
      This company is a total scam. We spent over $500 on tickets to tour the underground of the colosseum, but were not given the option to tour the underground on the website when we bought our tickets. We called and the company refused to give us a refund for a bunch of bs reasons. Play it safe and go with any other company

    This was a highly enjoyable tour. We booked a private tour for only our party of five people. The tour guide Lorenzo was knowledgable and entertaining. I highly recommend doing this tour instead of a larger one, as you can move through the space with ease--and you can hear the tour guide describe catacombs.

    Due to COVID we were on a private tour with a guide. She was very helpful and answered all of your questions, also the not so smart ones😉 absolutely something I would recommend. We booked the tour through Touriks and they were very helpful with all our questions for our first time in Rome!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    We booked our tour of the Catacombs with this company , our guide Francesca was excellent and very knowledgeable , always ready to answer questions , her English was very good and her accent easy to understand .
    A small issue was our transfer back was messed up for some reason and we had to wait over an hour before taxis ware booked instead , Francesca was very apologetic even though this was not her fault . Would still recommend as these things can happen .

    This tour was really fun and interesting! Our guide Lorenzo was really well informed and brought different stories to life for us as he brought us through the catacombs. There is so much history here and it was presented in a really engaging way. It a great way too cool off from the sun as it's underground and is a great experience.

    We booked last minute to go see the catacombs and I am so glad we did. There was so much we didn't know about the history of the catacombs and it really is a must see. It is quite a shock when you see how vast the network of tombs is, a really surreal experience. Our guide Lorenzo was great, really friendly and informative and gave us lots of interesting information about the site. He also gave us some useful tips after the tour for places and shops around the local area. We lucked out as it turned out we were the only two on the tour at that time so we got a very private experience and had chance to ask all the questions we wanted. Overall a really great experience and fantastic guide we would definitely do it again.

    Anestis is the perfect guide for this tour! He knows the real history, and some fun facts to keep the tour joyable. My perspective of The Trevi Fountain haa changed because of the explanation of all the details. A big thank you to Anestis!

    Probably the best tour we did during our time Rome.
    Small group tour and the site was not over run with dozens of other tour operators. This made it calm and respectful.
    Francesca was amazing. Explained everything we looked at wlth detail.
    Only a short tour but well worth it : 5*'s

    Great tour to learn about the early life of the Christians in Rome. Overall was very informative and easy to follow, not too long and not too short. Highly recommended, specially during the summer time as it is MUCH COOLER down below the ground. Anestus was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable, overall a 10/10 tour.

    Lorenzo is a great Guide, giving a lot of interesting Information. A very good, lively narrator, anything but boring. Due to COVID, we were only 5 people.
    It‘s the only Catacombs I have seen, so i can‘t compare it.
