Gerard, the organizer, has amazing communication. He sent me everything I needed to know for meeting and prep by email and sms. He also was very quick to reply to me and help me when I got there so that I could find the group more easily.I paid for the Colosseum (undergound and main), palantine, and forum. Francesca was our tour guide. it was a group of 3 so pretty much a private tour. Francesca was kind and knowledgeable of the sites. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is because I wouldn't say that the tour exceeded mu expectation. although the guide new the sites, she didn't animate much. She seems to have told us just the bear minimum of what we needed to to know based on main things that we needed to see there. I would have given 5 stars if I had a guide that was a great story teller showing an obvious passion for the history and the sites with additional historical anecdotes about the roman sites. overall would recommend 🙂
Incredible tour worth the money for sure! Extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Knew the entire history of Rome and told us a great story of the city while taking us through the Colosseum, Palatine, and the Forum. Were able to see the underbelly and the main floor of the Colosseum as well which was really incredible. 3.5 hour tour and a lot of walking. Would recommend at least 1L of water per person, especially if traveling in warm summer months like us. There are water fountains, restrooms, and street vendors that sell water as well. You can take a small backpack/purse into the colosseum as well. Really great experience. Would strongly recommend.
We had an incredible tour with Marlee! She has a wealth of knowledge and ties together the history of Rome at a level easy to comprehend. It was a very hot day, but she moved us from shaded area to shaded area. Excellent tour! I would ask for Marlee!
We had a very enjoyable tour of the colosseum, underground and Ancient Rome with Nic. It was very informative and well worth the money.
I took the tour of the Colosseum with Maria Leticia and loved it! She was very knowledgable about the history of Rome and the Colosseum and you can tell she is really passionate about what she does. I would really recommend taking your tour with Maria Leticia!
We took a 3.5 hour group tour of the coliseum (including underground and upper levels, accessible only with very special tours), Palatine Hill, and the Forum. Our guide Nick was superb.

We booked two tours with Real Rome Tours the first was a semiprivate tours. The first was the Treasures of the Vatican Tour. We met our guild at the Real Rome Tour offices after a nice lunch at a restaurant in the area. Our guide provided us with audio devices and ear phones (I used my own ear buds) so we would be able to hear him during the tour. We walked to the Vatican and after a couple of minutes waiting we entered the Vatican. Our guild was very knowledgable about the Vatican and the history of the site. He took time to give us additional information about the Vatican and what to expect on the tour. We walked the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica. He also recommended good locations for pictures and how to navigate the Vatican after the tour. Our second tour was the Real Ancient Rome Tour with a larger group. Again it was a great tour and the guild was very knowledgable of all the sites. I highly recommend Real Rome Tours if you are planning to visit Rome and want to know more about what you are seeing.
We booked a private tour to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum. Our guide was Alessia and she was wonderful. She tailored the tour to our needs -- including my kids' need to rest and sit down at times. She did a great job of engaging my two kids in the tour, making them feel comfortable enough to ask questions, and giving them information they would be interested in (gladiators!). Our experience with Real Rome Tours has been excellent from beginning to end. All the staff -- including the office staff answering the phone -- is professional and friendly, and they delivered on everything they promised. We would definitely use Real Rome Tours again!
We did the Rome In a Day tour and it was splendid. We saw so many great sites in such a short amount of time: Colosseum, Pantheon, Forum, Palentine Hill, Vatican, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's, and many, many other sights! Our guide, Patriza was wonderful! Highly recommend this group!
Hands down, the best tour we’ve taken in Rome. Real Rome Tours was personal, communicating in a friendly thorough text with all the meet up info. Vincenzo was great! He is a such a great teacher about the history of the Colosseum, Palantine Hill, and the Forum. He took care of us, directing for best photo ops too. Thoroughly enjoyed this VIP Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome Tour.
We took the underground colosseum tour and we were able to be the first to enter, it was a great way to see this landmark. The guide was very informative and we had a great time walking around and hearing about the history of the sites.
Heidi our tour guide was outstanding. All information given prior to the tour was exceptional very clear and left nothing of concern prior to meeting up. The tour was informative and ran at a really good pace. This was booked for my wife’s birthday which was on the day we took the tour and it made her trip and birthday, an exceptionally memorable one. When we came out of the Colosseum, the tour owner was there with a small gift and a handshake which went down exceptionally well. Will use this company again for personal and business trips. Thanks
Real Rome Tours was awesome! Heidi gave us amazing walking tours of Rome including the Colosseum, Forum, and all the best highlights. Her knowledge, communication skills, patience, and passion for the subject matter were all top notch. I highly recommend the Colosseum Underground and full day walking tour of Rome with Real Rome Tours. It really brought Rome and it’s history to life for us including our teenage kids.

We had a private tour of the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica. Our guide, Heidi, was fantastic! Everything was very easy for us and ran smoothly. Heidi’s historical knowledge was impressive and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Heidi asked us for our interests and let us choose certain things to see. I believe she tailored some of the time according to our conversations and reactions. She hit the nail on the head for my son who loves Roman history. We will cherish this memory for years to come!
Gerard was very attentive, patient and helpful in coordinating with us on our 5 customized tours as we were specific about the holy sites we wanted to visit during our 2 week stay in Rome! Throughout our entire correspondence (which lasted a few weeks haha!), we had each query attended to and he even took time to check in with the tour guides and anyone else for any information that could help, even when adding in new locations / churches to our itinerary that were well outside Rome (Pompeii). He went the extra mile to suggest pit stops along the way and new holy sites that we didn’t know about, once he understood that our main goal was to organize a personal pilgrimage. Gerard still took so much trouble to find details about places that were outside his expertise – an excellent coordinator and someone you would really want to assist you in planning ! As for the days leading up to each tour, Gerard would give gentle reminders – he even assisted us to book a taxi from a restaurant back to our hotel when my daughter and I were stranded late on Christmas Eve night. Even when we were in the taxi, he wanted us to let him know when we reached the hotel, going above and beyond to ensure our safety despite him spending time with his family. During our tours, we were blessed to have Heidi as our tourguide as she was so caring in ensuring each tour was at a comfortable pace, Heidi was very conscientious, even assisting us to communicate with the Royal Guard at the Vatican to collect our mass tickets. She would act as a big sister to gently remind us on securing our bags infront of us. On our walking tour, she had even prepared bus tickets as she knew I might be too exhausted to walk long distances – it came as a great relief and pleasant surprise as it showed the level of care she has for us. Heidi was also highly competent and knowledgeable, and we could see how passionate she was with her work from the way she would prepare for the tours itself - printing info and explaining the different histories. She paid close attention to what we were looking for (holy relics, books etc. ) and would remember these details along the tours - even reminding us of them! One good example is when we had a list of holy books and sacramentals we wanted to get, she would take note of the piety/book shops in the area and also the timing of what was open. In the churches we visited, she would also secure access to the holy relics. Our customized tours with Real Rome Tours were extremely well organized and executed from start to end (even till we landed back in Singapore!). I would recommend this especially for small families or couples because you would get to better enjoy and revel in the beauty and history of the holy sites, and have more time to venerate at each location. It would also be at a pace that is comfortable and tailored for you. Thank you Real Rome Tours for taking good care of us & ensuring a wonderful and memorable experience ! Highly recommend 200% - would love to engage you for our tours if we are ever back in Rome !
Absolutely fantastic time with Real Rome Tours, very professional, informative guides and lots of FUN. We were a group of 8 friends who visited the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica then the Colosseum and Forum two days later. I had been to the Vatican and Sistine Chapel a few years ago but this time I learned and saw so much more from our tour guide Donatella. Contact with Jer from the start was excellent and he designed a tour to suit our needs. He was very prompt in replying to all our queries. I would highly recommend Real Rome Tours, if you want a professional yet friendly day out in Rome. They even gave us ponchos for the rain and lovely restaurant recommendations.
Our tour of the colosseum was better than could have been imagined. Heidi, the guide, gave detailed history about all aspects of the site, complete with additional visual aids of the historical site. We could not be more pleased with the experience.
This tour was long but great! If you’re in Rome and want to know all the history then Sabrina is the one! She taught us many new things and took us to all the beautiful historical sites. She was easy going and accommodated to our needs (restrooms and pics taking breaks).
Excellent Colosseum experience with Real Tome Tours Booked the small group tour of the colosseum. Was expecting a group of 5/6 people in total however we were the only two which was a bonus. Heidi was a great guide. Very friendly, knowledgeable and the tour flew by. was impressed by the contact before and after tour to ensure we got to our meeting point firstly and then checking in how we got on after. Very impressed and would definitely recommend.
Highly recommend - learn about the Colosseum and Ancient Rome from an expert I took the Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome tour with Real Rome Tours. Heidi was our guide, and she was absolutely wonderful. Full of knowledge, and a lovely person too. I had heard great things about this tour company, but my expectations were far exceeded. The main difference between Real Rome Tours, and other companies, is that Real Rome Tours are very small and tailored. I noticed many other guides with up to 20 people, whereas we had a very small group which made it much easier to ask questions and have a very personalized tour. Thank you so much to Heidi for making this tour so memorable.
VIP Colosseum Underground & Ancient Rome Tour VIP Colosseum Underground & Ancient Rome TourThis tour exceeded our expectations. Heidi, our guide spent so much time with us and was able to answer all our questions, plus expand on every possible topic. Do not hesitate to book this tour. It might be a bit more expensive than other companies, but the outcome is definitely worth the price. We saw other groups with 20+ people traipsing through the Colosseum. Our group was supposed to be a group of 6, but turned out to be just the two of us. Who doesn't like a private tour. Thank you so much Gerard and Heidi. I highly recommend your company to anyone wanting an indepth tour of Rome.
Coliseum and underground tour The incredible knowledge of the guide and the ease with which the tour was booked and all the information about the tour was provided. Heidi the guide was friendly and extremely helpful and as I said knowledgeable. Well worth the cost of the tour!!!
Perfect Colosseum tour! We had a wonderful tour with Heidi! She was very knowledgeable and kind, answering all of our questions with ease — we would definitely tour with this company again!

This was such a great experience for me and my wife. We loved everything about our trip to the colosseum. Our trip to the colosseum was amazing. everyone was so great to work with. Never forget it. Would recommend you guys to everyone. Gerald and Francesca were so great.
Perfect We took two tours with Real Roman tours and they were amazing. 4 of us took private tours to the Vatican and the Coliseum. Donatella was our guide and she was terrific. We even got into the underground of the Coliseum I highly recommend this tour group and plan on using them on our future excursions.
Amazing tour company in Rome Amazing all around experience and service - would recommend for anyone visiting Rome. This was our second time using this company. They arranged airport transfers to and from our hotel and also we did both Vatican and Colosseum tours. Our party had 15 people and the entire experience from start to end was perfect. Thanks again Real Rome tours!
10/10 amazing Nic was a wonderful guide. So good in fact when I bring my fiancé back to Rome, I’m going to request Nic again. 10/10 beat tour guide we’ve had. Super knowledgeable. Extremely nice. He even took pictures for us! We will be back for more. Thanks for a wonderful colosseum tour!
