We are indeed tour guides but first we are travelers. We understand there might be last minute unforeseen circumstances that might cause a change of plans. When we sat down to write our cancellation policy we decided to think to what Cancellation Policy we would like to have for ourselves for our trips.

Thanks to the latest generation VR headset, as easy as putting on sunglasses, you will experience an accurate 3D and 360° view of selected areas of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. You will be accompanied by an expert local guide who lead you into the past and will assist with using the device. 

Experience what it was like to stand in front of the great Colosseum at the time it was first constructed. The massive stone amphitheater seated an estimated 60,000 spectators and was built in only 8 years. Your guide will share fascinating stories of its design and construction, the politics, the fighters, and the eventual end of the games at the Colosseum. Simultaneously, you'll be virtually catapulted into the place where it all started.

Wander the Roman Forum with your expert guide and get passionate about the history of the great Roman Empire. Your guide will bring to life the mythology, popular celebrations of the time, and gods of ancient Rome, which are reflected in the star signs in contemporary astrology. Stop in front of selected ruins and marvel as they come alive and fully rebuilt in front of you. You will be able to easily and truly understand what the Roman Forum looked like and you’ll instantaneously step 2000 years into the past as an actor on its original stage.

    This tour was great! First of all, it’s amazing to be on a private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum in the first place, but with VR!?! Wow. Elisa was very entertaining and informative, and kept us going at a good pace- there is A LOT to see, and she wanted to make sure we saw it all! It was really fun to be able to put on the headsets and see the Colosseum and Roman Forum as they were back in the day. My kids absolutely loved it (I appreciated that Eyes was careful to warn us about possible health risks of VR- a chance I was willing to take!) In any case, if you want to get a different look at the Colosseum and surrounding area, this tour is not to be missed!

Additional Information
VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSET HEALTH ADVISORY
This tour makes use of Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus device ('Gear VR'). The Gear VR should not be used by children under the age of 13, as young children are in a critical period in visual development.

Adults should monitor children (age 13 and older) who are using or have used the Gear VR for any of the symptoms described below, and should limit the time children spend using the Gear VR and ensure they take breaks during use.

A comfortable virtual reality experience requires an unimpaired sense of motion and balance. Do not use the Gear VR when you are tired, need sleep, are under the infuence of alcohol or drugs, are hung-over, have digestive problems, are under emotional stress or anxiety, or when suffering from cold, flu, headaches, migraines, or earaches, as this can increase your susceptibility to adverse symptoms.
