Guide for the underground was great, however there was confusion when six of us had to split up for our Roman Forum tour. The other guide was looking for six to take, which six did leave our group, but not our six as our guide told us to stay with her. After she was done, she had no idea that we had to go to the Forum. Other than that and paying more for a tour that didn't happen, the Collostour.more

Great experience, so glad we did the underground tour. I think we got to see and learn much more than a typical tour

Really enjoyed the tour. Informative, great guides, easy to understand. There's so much to see in the Colosseum and also the Forum that 2-3 hours doesn't really cover it all but this tour was a great introduction to both the Colosseum and Forum. Having the radio to hear the guides was appreciated since it allowed the opportunity to look around a bit and still hear the guides. It was well-organitour.more

I have taken many great tours thru Viator, and my recent small group tour of the Roman Forum and Colosseum with Patrick at Explore Italy tours was the best one yet. We only had ten people in our group, and Patrick, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and had a fantastic sense of humor which kept everyone engaged. I strongly recommend this tour!

Very interesting tour and especially the under ground part. Our guide was really good and helpful. Unfortunetly we never done the 2nd part of the tour, which was Palantine Hill as it was heavy rain but the guide did offer and said we could come back the next day but we were leaving that day!

Both tours were phenomenal and we were very pleased to learn so much detailed information about the Colosseum and Forum. Both guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic when talking about the ancient Romans.

Skip the queue. This is the way forward. I would like to have seen more of the underground though ??

Skipping the line was a big advantage in the July heat. Very knowledgeable guides. We didn't see a lot of the underground, but what we did see was a nice escape from the crowd. Learned a lot of history that we would not have had if we had visited on our own.

The first guide for the colosseum was good but the second guide for the forum was too wordy, repeated himself consistently and I felt like I learned nothing. He was also unorganized. Finally the forum tour was too many people and we didn’t get started for an hour because the guide had an expired pass and other poor planning issues.

Found this tour very interesting and could just picture and feel what use to go on in the times with the very good commentary the guide gave . Very informative and obviously she loves her job .
