Fantastic experience, everything we thought it would be, however pre booked our tour and didn't realise the tour guide did not give us a talking tour... we had to walk around on our own and find out about history ourselves. It did not spoil the experience but do wish we had

Response from G T, Director of Sales at Small-Group Tour: Colosseum Underground
Responded 28 Oct 2019
Dear sally5588, As much as we share your enthousiasm about the Colosseum, your review does cause slight confusion on our behalf. At Roma Experience we only offer guided tours, meaning that a guide explains and accompanies our customers when visiting the Colosseum/Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. So our customers are not left to wander around the monuments by themselves. Would you be able to contact us directly and provide us with your name/surname and which date you participated in our tour? These are not the standards we withhold for our tours, and therefor I would like to look into this matter in more detail.
