Reviews for Rome: Vatican Guided Tour & Entry To The Colosseum
Poor communication for Colosseum tour.
Vatican tour guide was knowledgeable. The amount of people at the Vatican took away the enjoyment of the tour. We were there in May, can’t imagine during the June and July high tourist months. I feel the quantity of tours and tickets offered need to be reevaluated.

Wonderful Company!
During our week in Rome, we had three tours booked through ItaliaTours…The Vatican, The Colosseum, and The High Speed Train to Pompeii/Naples. All were absolutely fantastic! The guides were very knowledgeable and seemed to have a passion for their work. The tours were on time and well organized. I am so glad we booked with ItaliaTours, and would highly recommend them to anyone visiting Rome!
Amazing Day
This was my second tour with our guide Paolo he was fantastic very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor. I can't recommend this tour to much,it's so much better to have a guide to explain all the amazing things you will see.
In love with Rome
I enjoyed the entire day! Our guide was very knowledgeable and the Vatican tour was just the perfect length! We had a nice break between the Vatican tour and the Coliseum tour so we had lunch, rested our feet and then enjoyed a leisure tour of the Coliseum. It was a perfect day!
