The booking was easy and the tour was breathtaking. The colloseum is an attraction you must see when you‘re in Rome.To skip the line was really worth it because we have seen much more at the same day. Thank you.

Very Pleasant Staff- well organised and smooth way to see the Coliseum and Palatine Hill. We had a fantastic time and things got even better as Celtic beat Lazio 2-1!

The team was very friendly and easy to find; and they made entry into both the Colosseum and the Roman Forum quick and easy.

Great visit. Recommended; although we were disappointed that we had missed the blood sports by only 1600 years (we could have witnessed these if we hadn’t been waiting in the queue).

The Colosseum is a must see when visiting Rome. We attended with a tour which afforded us the privilege of skipping the long lines. Highly suggested as it was warm and there were lots of people.

While it still took a long time to get in, we skipped the enormous line for individual entries and joined the group entrance line. Once inside you have an hour to look around and meet back at the meeting point beside the Arch. You're then...More

The Colosseum is fantastic however, it is only a small part of a much larger site. The Palatine & Forum are just simply staggering and a 100% must see. The tour guides/agents are easy to locate and really friendly. I would highly recommend this trip...More
