Engaging and informative

The Flavian Amphitheatre (colosseum) is a must see when coming to Rome. Our tour guide Lorenzo was very engaging and informative. We saw lots of people with headphones but nothing will ever be as good as a face-to-face guide! We had other commitments so couldn’t continue onto the Roman forum or palatine hill parts of the tour, but nonetheless we would highly recommend this guided tour off the colosseum portion alone! Thank you Lorenzo

Great tour, learned a lot from our tour guide. The tour was about 90 minutes total. About 45 mins in line going and going through security. However our tour guide was sharing a bunch of info during this time. We were given radios/ear bud so we can hear the guide. We were inside the Colosseum for around 45 minutes with this express tour and we were limited to pretty much the inside perimeter and the first deck. If you want the full tour, you'd like to see the underground of the Colosseum, the other layers, etc you'll need to do a more comprehensive tour. It's very crowded and a bit hectic so be prepared for that. If you have kids that are sensitive to lots of people the express tour may work better. There are times where you need to be aware of where your tour guide is because of the large crowds and other tours taking place. The history of the Colosseum is amazing and historic.

Our tour guide's English was marginal and she seemed bored during the tour. Could have done it on our own.

Do not use “SHOW ME ITALY TOURS”!!!

I booked this July 4, 2019 10am tour of the Colosseum back in January 2019. Everything was set, including a private car from the cruise ship, and an afternoon tour of the Vatican. Well on July 3 (the day before)Rita from SHOW ME ITALY emails me and says that they do not have a tour available at 10 am!!!! WHAT??? I couldn’t believe it! (I’m on a cruise ship with minimal cell service- this was planned over 6 months ago) She offered me 9:20 or 11am. I knew 11 would be too late- so reluctantly I said 9:20am. I knew this was going to be a problem as our ship was only docking at 7:30 am. THIS IS WHY I BOOKED A 10am tour back in January. We arrived at the Colosseum at 9:40 am- and it was total CHAOS!! We could not find THE SHOW ME ITALY representative- so more time was wasted. Eventually Bruno found us and he said it’s too late-that we missed the tour! I was very upset and said he needs to help us. He took us to Susan- and she said Rita notified us that the tour was at 9:20. I said NO!! The tour I booked was at 10am. It was totally unacceptable. Susan said she could put us on a 10:40 tour- so since we were out of options we agreed, however, the SKIP THE LINE TOUR, that we booked had a 90 minute line!!! WHAT A FRAUD! We got into the Colosseum at noon!!! This was 2 hours later than booked! This caused us to miss our Vatican tour at 14:00 hours. Interestingly, while on line, we noticed several tour companies escorting late guests up to their tour groups. Susan easily could have accommodated us and found that 9:20 group. SHOW ME ITALY ruined our stay in Rome. I want a refund for this tour as it was fraudulently offered as a SKIP THE LINE TOUR. Plus- I want you to refund the cost of the Vatican tour as your breach in our contract caused us to miss that tour. You entered into a contract with me in January 2019 for a 10am tour- and you think you can unilaterally change it a few hours before-SHAME ON YOU! Do not use SHOW ME ITALY TOURS!!

Disappointing

We bought skip the line for Colosseum and Ruins tour. Our guide was good but at the end of the Colosseo tour she told us we could either meet a new guide for the Ruins or we could stay at the Colosseo and do the ruins on our own. We opted for that. What she didn't tell us was that we needed tickets (which she never gave us) to get into the Ruins. Had we had the tickets, we would have had to stand in another line to get them validated for the Ruins. So we never got to see the ruins.
