Best tour guide experience of my life!

In short, I had a great day with DoTravel... Yes the above title may sound like a ridiculous exaggeration but the service provided by our tour coordinator and the two guides through the coliseum and the surrounding sites was the best I have experienced. The emphasis on customer care, the breadth of knowledge and experience of the entire team, and their ability to adapt and adjust to challenging situations while still providing a personal touch really made me want to come back to Rome and do a little travel with DoTravel again. Joke aside, I’m already making plans to bring my travel wary parents to Rome and I’ll be signing them up for some more excellent adventures with DoTravel. They are gonna love it! I feel a special mention of our guide coordinator is necessary. Tanya provides the kindest and most professional customer service. Additionally our two tour guides were incredible in their historical and archaeological knowledge base, but most importantly they made the tours fun and personable. James had the group of tourists in stitches with entertaining metaphors to make the history accessible. Also as a student of archaeology I was over joyed by the in depth perspectives of our PhD level guide for the Coliseum. Perhaps I was just in a really good mood on the day of our DoTravel tour. But I must say that of my past three weeks of travel and tours in Europe as well as a past dozens of vacations internationally this was the best tour group I have had the pleasure of working with. Thanks DoTravel.

Great tour and extremely helpful staff

The underground tour is probably the best tour I have ever been on in Europe. The guide was a real archeologist and really knew what she’s talking about and was really engaging. Also we missed our second half of the tour, but Tania was extremely nice and helpful and helped us contacted her friends even though she’s already done with work that day, just so that we got to see Palatine Hills before we left Rome. Big shoutout to her :D

Much better than expected!

My thought when I saw the price was we’d only get a busride to get us to Pompeii and back! But I was pleasantly surprised! Claudia, our tourguide, was absolutely magnificent and gave us plenty of information, tips and hints. She helped us in every way possible and was willing and able to give more information about Rome (the place we stayed).

Excellent tour!

My wife and I wanted to make sure we had the full tour with all access for the Colosseum. We looked and found many had this but they were either too full or too much money. Then we found it on Do Travel. It had the exact time we wanted and was a good price. When we got there, it was exactly what we wanted and tour guide was very engaging and knowledgeable. As well the Do Travel agent checked on us a few times to make sure all was going well. It was a memorable experience for sure.

Excellent and friendly

This was a great way to see the colosseum the tour guide was very informative and really knew her history. It’s great to also be able to combine the Forum and skip all the queues as they are so close. We would highly recommend this tour.


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.
