How it Works
We will get the tickets ahead of time so that you won’t have to wait in any lines. During the booking process, you will be able to tell us when and what you would like to tour. You will also have the opportunity to tell us how we can customize the private tour for you and yours. With that, we will create the perfect tour for you.


Do you combine people to share the tour?

All our tours are private and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else – without having to accommodate other people’s interests. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.
We specialize in private, tailor-made vacations for individuals, families and friends.

Do we skip the line to enter the Coliseum?

Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.
Please Note: For safety reasons even with booking reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the Coliseum. Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the Colosseum. For safety reasons ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, so even with reservations there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the site. Because of the security measures, the line for entry may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.

Does your skip the line tour of the Coliseum go to the underground level or the 3rd tier?

The Colosseum does not allow any company to conduct private visits to the underground areas. The underground and third tier level access of the Colosseum is run exclusively by the Colosseum and only available for those joining group tours. Therefore, the visit of these areas are NOT included in our private family tours.

What happens if a site is unexpectedly closed on the day of scheduled tour?

We are NOT liable for reduced itineraries owing to unscheduled closures by attractions. Unscheduled closures do not depend on us, but on the administration of the sites visited on the tour. In the event of an unexpected closure of a site or attraction your guide will promptly provide an alternative itinerary. While we regret these inconveniences, these rare unforeseen closures are beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore no refunds will be issued.
The Colosseum is subject to occasional last minute closures without notice due to rain, assembly meetings, strikes or other factors. If it happens your guide will modify the itinerary working with the circumstances given. While we regret this inconvenience, the unforeseen closure of the Coliseum is beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued.
