    Super informative and entertaining tour!

  • N
    Highly recommended in order to actually get into the Colosseum without waiting hours in a queue. The app was extremely informative and allowed you to explore at your own leisure.

  • D
    Worth the purchase. I came to Rome in August when just about everyone is gone. The colosseum was still very busy and packed, I’m happy I purchased the skip the line tickets or else we would have waited for a long time.

  • C
    Excellent! Fantastic customer service!! Could not of asked for better communication with a tour company. App was easy to download and use and it was very informative! Thank you for all your help! Would definitely recommend.
