Hello, Edwin! We have taken into consideration your review and we will shortly change the description of the meeting point to make it easier for people to reach us. The guide inside is different because the Colosseum is handled by an official staff. We love, love your comment about the guide because we make it our aim to chose guides that love what they do and can therefore share their enthusiasm making it contagious! Thank you for choosing our tours!

Glad to learn that the tour part of your experience was handled exceptionally. As for the lighting, it is unfortunately not under our administration but people usually enjoy the Colosseum by night very much due to the eerie atmosphere that adds great mystery. Thank you for taking the time to write this review!

This tour is well worth doing, you get to see the lower parts of the Colosseum with a guide and learn so much more than visiting during the day. Also, the Colosseum at night is even more picturesque than during the day.

If you go to Rome the Colosseum is a must to see - I agree! But I could never imagine how unique and amazing would be to stand in the middle of the almost empty arena and stroll around the underground area at night. Our guide was so engaging and nice! We had a very good
