What people are saying about Rome

Firstly, booking changed by an out of the blue phone call while in Rome which ended up costing ''me'' approx $25 for just recieving it. i was offered a different tour at different time, and was even asked if i could change my morning boooking i had booked to fit in with their sheduled tour which i couldn't, and was then offered a partial refund! we ended up agreeing to a lesser tour in the afternoon just so we didnt miss out of seeing the Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basillica. This tour was booked as we wanted to see the pope mobile collection and appreciated our guide allowing us to separate from group for a quick 5 min visit while we were close by looking at something else. The Meeting point was set up and towards to the back end of the Basillica building, and using the Maps app it was easy to find. we were split into two large groups, we went with a wonderful guide who was very informative, sorry don't remember his name. it was a long 3 hour tour but we thouroughly enjoyed it.

Vatican: Skip-the-Line Afternoon Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 26/10/2019

We were a little disappointed by the vr experience. The graphics were outdated and we literally stood out front of the colloseum in a small group with the goggles on. We were starting to think we weren't going on an actual tour! The information was just reading narrated paragraphs in the vr sky. After an hour we finished the vr and got separated into our proper tour groups. Our guide, Marco, was very informative, answered all questions we asked and truly had a passion for the history he was explaining.

It was a lot of fun! The guide meets you outside the coliseum and teaches you how to operate the VR goggles. You can see the outside, inside, and underground of the coliseum. The graphics are pretty outdated but it is cool nonetheless. Then a guide takes you inside the coliseum and leads you through the different levels. Then he takes you to the Forum to explore on your own. Lasts more like 3 hours than 2. The line waiting to get inside the coliseum was horrendous, so you definitely need a tour.

I can’t recommend their tour enough. We had two small children and were not sure how interested they would be in visiting the Colosseum. The VR experience showed them exactly how the gladiators fought and how the Colosseum looked at the time. They absolutely loved it and were able to appreciate the Colosseum once they were inside. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Great guides who went above and beyond.

There were some minor technical problems with my viewer because of the heat, but the guide sorted them out quickly and the VR was absolutely amazing! It brought the whole place to life and explained the history and purpose of the Collesseum really well. I loved it and would definitely choose to do this again, when I am back in Rome one day with my adult son!
