Fabulous experience, our guide was great and the collesuem was breathtaking - my only comment would be that there was no instruction or organisation after getting through security. There was no one there to greet us so we ended up just looking for other visitors with matching green badges to see if someone knew what to do next and no one did, so we all hung around for about 20 minutes to see if someone came to get us. The guide did turn up eventually but with the collesuem being so busy it would of been nice to have had a bit more direction.

good visit, tickets and entrance fees were well prepared. Good explanation of the process at the point of contact. be careful the point of contact is not at the beginning of the visit. First you have to do the Forum and the Palatine, and only then the guided tour of the Colosseum. the entrance to the colosseum is a bit chaotic, but then it's well organized. it's worth the detour to do the underground.

We were originally supposed to do the underground tour but the day before our tour we were contacted to say we couldn't do the underground tour and they offered a 3 hour instead, it was disappointing that we could not do the underground part and at such short notice. Our guide was absolutely brilliant, answered questions and was very informative, we couldn't have asked for a better guide. It would have been nice at the end if we were able to walk around inside but we were brought to the exit gates. Great experience all the same.
