Walking around the Colosseum, seeing the line for the ticket office so glad we skipped those! Our private tour around the Colosseum was great our guide took his time to tell interesting details. Enjoyed the conversation and let my children ask their own questions. Which he answered in great detail and with much enthusiasm. The stories he told us about the forum were also really worthwhile. His presence made our trip much more worthwhile. Thank you and we hopefully use your services next time when we visit Rome.

I booked this private tour for the three of us to avoid dealing with group issues and to be able to go at our own pace and preferences. I also did not want to spend time in long lines. The tour met these expectations. The guide had a PhD in archaeology. She was very knowledgeable about everything we saw. We learned more than we expected. She answered all our questions and tailored the tour based on our feedback. At the end of the tour, we got rained on, and I'm not talking about the rain we have in Johannesburg, real rain. Everyone was so wet, it was laughable. Fortunately, it was a hot day so it was refreshing in a way. It was definitely an unforgettable day. I would highly recommend this tour.

The day was really informative and definitely value for money rather than walking around aimlessly from site to site but also for the time value of skipping the queues. Definitely recommend if you are on a tight timeframe as you cover so much ground, because of this I would wear some comfortable walking shoes! We had a wonderful time, thank you!

We have been to Rome in Italy many times, but never with a licensed tour guide. For me, I wanted to have the very best from this tour. We have to do a lot of research into this tour, and was happy with the results on privtetour.com, as our tour operators. They were fantastic at their job, the help they provided us with was only the best. Our tour guide met us at the entrance to the Coliseum. What a massive crowd of people waiting to get in, all wanting to get in first. She held up a sign with our name on it, she had already purchased our tickets, and she led us in with no problems. I honestly do not know if we could have found the right way to the inside entrance without her. Any questions needed answering; we were not short of an answer. From there we went to the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. The tour was phenomenal.

It was raining the day of our tour. The company called us ahead of time to work on rescheduling the tour. Turned out we were able to reschedule for a little later in the day. Marie was very knowledgeable and allowed us to set the pace of the tour, having a private tour really makes a difference. In every site we went to Maria took the lead to make sure we moved to the front of the line. This gave us more time to look at the sites and hear the history instead of standing in lines waiting to get in. Maria pointed out so many of the details that my boyfriend and I would have simply walked by or spent time looking in a guidebook and trying to figure out what we were looking at. The next time we travel I will be using your services to help us explore new places. Well worth the money.

Our tour was worth every penny. Our guide was extremely articulate and knowledgeable about the history of the Vatican's many fabulous works of art. I would strongly recommend this tour to any visitor as you will get so much more out of a trip to the Vatican with an expert than just strolling around with a guidebook. 5/5

I have been to Rome with my mother and I wanted to show her as much as possible and provide her with all proper information. As my mother doesn´t speak English I firstly checked whether you could cater to our needs and you picked our guide for us. She ensured me that she could help with translating I am too not a native speaker but I understood her very well and i could translate for my mother. Our guide provided us with lots of information which you usually don´t find in books and also with her viewpoint to some historical events. We also got some recommendation to another places which would be great to see. I can highly recommend this company and their services. And if I come back to Rome and want to see more I will use Privatetour.com.

We booked this tour through a company, to avoid any hassle or mistake made. We know we wanted a guided tour, we just had to do our homework on this. With a lot of research, we found a company that stood out to us, privatetour.com. The tour was explained to us so well, we felt at ease and happy enough to book it. The overall experience was unbelievable, we cannot recommend this company enough.

Despite heavy rains, our guide did a great job. We learned so much of the structure, operation, and behaviors of the Roman lifestyles with the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. It was worth walking around in the rain and our guides English was very good and her knowledge of the subject matters was wonderful and refreshing. We would highly recommend a private tour with your company!

This was a fantastic 3 1/2 hour tour. Our tour guide was amazing. She had so much information to share, including visual aids that really made the tour. Her knowledge of all of the areas that we toured was amazing. Her English was fantastic which was wonderful as I can only speak limited Italian unfortunately. Getting to see under the floor of the Colosseum was just so cool, really enjoyed that! I particularly enjoyed getting to walk out onto the floor itself and just imagine the crowd cheering for the gladiators. I can't wait to return to Rome and take this same tour again! There is a lot of walking and steps involved so travel lightly and have comfortable shoes. I very highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I couldn't of had a better experience! Highly recommend this tour, being able to stand out on the arena was spectacular! I have visited the Coliseum once before, general admission has got nothing on this guided tour. Skipping queues and wondering through the forum was also fabulous. From the technology and the expertise of the guides, everything was well worth it! Thanks for the experience.
