Reviews for Semi Private – Colosseum Arena Floor And Ancient Rome
Enjoyed Every Moment
Our tour with Nicola was amazing. First, have to admit I was skeptical on the size of the group we would be going with but the tour group was only 10! Which was PERFECT! Also, i want to highlight that the day before I'd had a terrible fall and spent time at the ER in the local hospital getting a large gash in my knee repaired, and while i could walk, stairs/curbs required care and Nicola ensured I could go at a pace that didn't cause me pain but also didn't hold back the rest of the group - which in one case involved using an elevator at the colosseum (which was a cool experience as well). The tour itself was great. Nicola was very knowledgable and entertaining in his narrative of the Colosseum and the areas around it. We are english speakers and his english was great - very easy to understand. He also ensured we all got the best photos of our group (he took several great snaps with our phones!). Our "family" group included my spouse's 25 yr old son who also enjoyed every moment of the tour. In fact, the tour identifying sticker "Show Me Italy" was stuck to the outside of his Airpod case even as we flew home! The tour was $ well spent. Bravo Nicola!
Not what I paid for $$$
I booked and paid for a semi private tour (up to 10 people), but Show me Italy put us in a tour of 23 people. When I questioned the cost difference, the tour operator 'Show me Italy' (Sergo) said I would have to get a refund from Get Your Guide, which is the app I booked the tour through. Also, the tour guide Lorenzo did not mention nor take us up to Palantine Hill, which was to be included in the tour. The tour ran late because the guide talked a lot, and the lady who monitors the Colosseum underground tours had to continually rush him along. I booked a 10:30 am start time for the tour but Show Me Italy changed it to 11:15am. I was told the reason was because the Colosseum administration changed the start time due to overcrowding of the monument. Lorenzo didn't even take us into the Colosseum until 1pm. Be sure to know what you paid for and question the tour operator if you don't get it.
Don't be fooled - Don't overpay thinking you'll be in a small group
We payed more to have a small group experience (up to 10 ppl said our booking confirmation; max 13 ppl says the description). They didn't which group to put us in. We ended up in a group of 25. Our first guide led us to the Colosseum line-upand then we had to find the "archaeologist. She was nice but confused and said we overpaid for one of her tours. We tried to call the office but that failed. So, we followed this giant group. The sound would cut out because we were so far behind her. Apparently all her groups are 25+. Needless to say, we were disappointed. We did not get what we payed for.
Great Tour
It was a Great Tour, The Guide explain us very interesting Things and visiting The arena was awesome
Professional guide and nice semi private experience
I think it's worth paying a bit more for a more intimate experience by having fewer people in the group. Our guide, Yumi (or Fumie as the Italians pronounce it), was professional, funny and would take time to explain the history and importance behind places or objects we passed by. She also had us use imagination to make the whole tour more engaging. Not sure why, but there was a bit of issue with our skip-the-line tickets so we had to line up with other groups but thankfully, the line moved pretty quick. I also wish that Yumi would give us more time to take photos here and there but overall the tour wasn't rushed.
