John was a very knowledgeable, personal guide, and he did not rush.

I was a bit concerned she I walked into the office because there were lots of people and three of the customers obviously were not happy with the service the young women behind the desk were providing them. They were not organized at all and I basically got no service. I was told to go stand outside on the sidewalk until 11:30...the time of our tour. A few moments later, a gentleman came out and asked if we'd like to go a bit earlier with him and his small group. We said yes. John was very personable and knowledgeable. Even though the tour was listed as an Express tour, he did not rush and answered every question. We went the day before Easter which was extremely busy so it did still take a bit of time to get into the Colosseum, but not nearly as long as it would've taken without this tour. I would recommend John.

Express tour is great option for those with less time.

Our guide Paulo was informative and entertaining throughout the tour. I was concerned when we spend ~30 minutes outside of the Colosseum, were we going to be shortchanged inside. But after getting ~1.5 hour tour with Paulo, we realized that he simply had a great passion for the history - he was excellent! He did a good job tying the entire story together while giving us a good sense of what a day at the Colosseum was like from many different perspectives. 4:30pm tour worked out well as it was not over crowed.

Competent friendly guide, lots of history

We had Roxanna, who was a helpful and knowledgeable guide. There were a few glitches (they couldn't print the tickets, she'd recently had knee surgery so could only walk very slowly) which threw the timing and our other appointments off. Also, we had our 10 year old son with us, I was hoping for a little more fun gladiator stories and facts, maybe less architecture. But overall she was great.

Was starting a little bit late but the guide had very good knowledge.

I have found this service by good luck on internet and was surprised, that it was basically working very well. Was starting a little bit late, but the guide had very good knowledge. The time of 1 hour is not realistic. For a planning you have to consider 2hrs+, I guess.

Informative, easy to book and an absolute must.

Fantastic guide [ John ] who was very informative, allowed us plenty of time to look around and ask loads of questions. Highly recommend this tour and fast tracking the huge queues that are always there. Easy to book and find opposite the Colosseum.
