Tour Description

Meet one of the staff members by the Colosseum, where you will be given your skip-the-line ticket and be introduced to the latest generation Samsung Oculus VR. You will be provided with 3D glasses which gives the amazing opportunity to go back in time of nearly 2000 years and be virtually immersed into ancient Rome, when the Colosseum was in its full grandeur before its decline.
The virtual glasses will allow you to see the direct contrast of what ancient Rome must have been like and what remains today. You can easily choose your preferred language through an integrated multilingual audio system with musical background.

Once you’re set, start your virtual experience and journey through the ancient Rome square, admire the outside of the Colosseum, see the colossal gilded bronze statue of Nero and the Arch of Constantine with its Meta Sudan fountain.

Inside the Colosseum’s arena, become onf of the many spectators and witness a gladiator’s fight scene with ravenous lions circling them.

The last stop are the infamous dungeons of the Colosseum, the place where animals and gladiators where accommodated prior to crucial battles. Explore the various gloomy 3D corridors and see the slaves as they prepare for the gruesome show.

Once you have completed the virtual experience, you will be escorted at the entrance of the Colosseum and enjoy a skip-the-line entrance and visit the world-famous and well-preserved Flavian amphitheater at your own pace. The same ticket will then give you access to the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, the “must-see” spots of Rome.

This is a great experience for visitors of all ages especially for families and children.

Informative, educational and entertaining, let the ancient city give you an insight of how it used to be. When in virtual Rome!

"Vatican Museum Tour"

We made our way towards the Vatican museum ticket office and luckily bumped into a very nice Spanish guy who suggested this company. Maya tours were absolutely brilliant. Our tour guide was Lebanese and was very knowledgable and funny. He made sure all the 20 people in our tour got the best out of the visit and his explanation of the history behind how the Vatican came to be and Michael Angelo’s Sistine chapel made us appreciate what we were looking at so much more than if we had just bought a ticket. The tour lasted about two and a half hours. Definately recommend this company.

"Worth every cent for Vatican Tour"

Our family of eight visited the Vatican during late December. The lines were hours long and we decided to join a Maya Tour. It was worth the cost in every way: we skipped the horrific lines and learned a great deal from our guide Deborah. The headsets allowed us to hear Deborah while looking somewhat independently during the tour. The tour group was huge — at least fifty, but Deborah was knowledgable and kept the tour interesting and snappy to young and old alike for several hours. Comments directed at a family accused of being gypsy pickpockets were a shock and the accuracy of the accusations is unknown. You might say this set the tone for theft and taking whatever one pleased as we learned about the history of the Vatican. Watch your pockets, indeed!

"Excellent tour of the Collosseum, Palatino and Roman Forum "

We started under a “meteorological bomb” aka lots of rain, but our guide Diego, had so much information and was so full of energy that we stick to it and did not regret it. Booking a tour is 100% worth it as you skipped all the lines, you are given a headphones and can hear the guide perfectly , even if you fall a bit behind or look at other things while listening.
I am 100% convinced that we got much more with being with a guide _ as an historian I usually do the reading myself and/or take the audio guide, but this skipping the line make the extra $ worth.

"Best guided tour that i ever had!"

In a few words, we had the luck to find a guide very passionate about his job. A person with tons of information about cultures, religion, history and arts. His name is Ribal Abighanem. He explained, in detail, every single piece of art or history that we’ve meet along the Vatican tour. It was really a celebration of culture!
