Wonderful Colosseum tour with Valarie

Valarie provide the family (wife, daughters (11 and 13) and myself) with an excellent tour of the Colosseum. Valarie was extremely well knowledged and made the experience both interesting and fun. Valerie used very good aides to assist in teaching the girls about the Colosseum and provided a good layered build up to fully understand what the Colosseum was. Was extremely pleased with the tour and a big thanks to Valarie.

Last minute tour

I like to travel like a true nomad and plan everything at the last possible second which makes for trouble :) Lucky for me there was a spot open with Tania’s DoTravel tour and I was able to get a full visit of the colosseum underground and Palatino. Since it’s a smaller company (compared to other popular ones) we had a more personal experience with fewer people. Tania and the group made sure we made it there on time and were able to find the group. We were a bit confused when we first arrived at the meeting point but once we found the team it was an easy walk over to the coliseum entrance with the skip the line pass. We had headphones and a very nice Italian local tour guide. We did have some minor language barriers as our guide had limited English skills as we went through the tour of the coliseum but it wasn’t a huge issue. It took about an hour to get through the coliseum arena and underground... unfortunately the underground was under reconstruction so we didn’t get the full experience. We only saw a small portion of the underground which was underwhelming considering the cost of the tour and the limited tickets. We were running a little bit late to the second half of the tour (Palatino) after lunch and the guide and other tourist were kind enough to wait ten minutes in the heat for us (which our group greatly appreciated!) The second guide, James, gave a great and captivating tour of the Palatino. It was shorter, about 30 minutes or so. Personally, I wish that the coliseum itself had more to see (I was a bit disappointed considering all the hype.... it’s really just a shell of its former self) and that the underground were fully accessible but that is out of the tour guides control... Overall DoTravel did great and I was happy with their service. I would use DoTravel again.

This tour was fantastic! Flavia was so knowledgeable and made the tour even better by adding personal touches. With so much to absorb she was able to give us the highlites as well as help us to decide what other tours would be interesting! Luca got us all organized and Flavia allowed us to understand what early times at the Vatican were like! Amazing!

Love this tour!

Love this tour! It was so unique and nice to have the whole Colosseum practically to ourselves! The tour starts w a short walking tour and then you are handed off to an archeologist that works in the Colosseum, which was really cool!

Private Colosseum Tours

There is nothing more special than sharing a once-in-a-lifetime experience with lots of tourists, right? The Colosseum can accommodate up to 3000 people at any one time. That equals some long queues! The best way to avoid those anaconda lines is with a Colosseum private guided tour. If you are visiting the Colosseum in Rome and you prefer your views uninterrupted or like to explore at your own pace without the crowds...then we have the Colosseum private tours just for you! 

Rome wasn’t built in a day - and the Colosseum will show you why. This astounding feat of architecture has survived earthquakes and centuries of weather. When you stand in the middle of the arena, in exactly the same spot that Gladiator warriors fought lions, you will understand the awesome power of the Colosseum. Maybe you will feel the brush of a chariot thunder past or hear the cries of millions of spectators during one of the legendary Gladiator ring battles. 

When in Rome, treat yourself like a Roman Emperor and visit one of the New 7 Wonders of the World! Let your private Rome Colosseum tour guide take you to the secret spots and handle the responsibility of tickets and queues. Leave the crowds behind and enjoy a private Colosseum tour of Rome’s wondrous monument.
