It was great seeing the colosseum at night, very few people at the same time. We also went to the normal Colosseum tour where it was very hot and a lot of people. I liked Colosseum underground better, highly recommended.

The guide was very knowledgeable. There was so much information so I think the tour should be a little bit longer.
