Traveler Reviews

    I chose Aim Rome Limo from someone we met on a cruise. It was the best choice. We were greeted in Venice by a guide and water taxi driver, on time. After being taken to our hotel, we had our private tour begin. Venice was a gondola ride and skip the line St Marks Basilica. Our guide (Samuel Fabbro) very knowledgeable and pleasant. Next day we were again greeted by a guide and Andreas. He then drove us 5 hours himself to Rome for our next adventure. After settling in, We were greeted in Rome by David, he took us to the Vatican with skip the line tickets, again took the time to explain all the sights and was amazing. The next day we were taken to the local sights and to the colosseum ,we were greeted by Andrea himself driving and Kate as his local guide. Kate made the day beyond fantastic. Her personality and knowledge was spot on. 6 hours later the day flew by. We saw so much, Trivali fountain, churches, colosseum, parks... All of the people Andreas contracted with are the best. Andreas is one of the best tour guides/driver I have ever met. He made sure everyone who met up with our group of 5 were on time and followed the itinerary to the letter. We even talked about meeting up for a future tour of other parts of Italy in the near future with him as our guide/driver again. He returned us to the airport on time and thrilled we chose his company.

    Warm welcome every day. Very experienced and knowledgeable. Enjoyed sharing his stories and we enjoyed hearing them. Outstanding Customer Service!

    Our family used Aim numerous times on our recent trip to Italy. We used them as airport/ship/hotel transfer as well 3 private tours in Florence, Naples & Rome. All of the drivers/guides were friendly, informative & accommodating in giving us the best experience. I highly recommend their service!

    My wife and I spent the day touring Rome with Andrea. He was very kind professional and an excellent driver. Besides showing us the main attractions(colosseum, Vatican with a tour guide, Spanish steps, pantheon etc.) we also experienced a traditional Roman lunch in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. We ended our day at a local gelato shop. This is the best way to see Rome, especially if your only visiting for a few days and don’t like waiting in lines.

    We were very happy with our tour, our driver Andrea was very nice and it was more fun than a bus tour. We had control over our own iterinary, could spend as little or as much time in each place as we wanted, and got to see the basilica of St. Paul, which was beautiful and less crowded than places on the regular tours.

  • 05-Nov-2018

    Andrea, our driver (Italy seems to require that guides can’t drive, and drivers can’t guide), was quite pleasant, spoke perfect English, answered all our questions, and was happy to modify the tour on our request (we stopped at Janiculum Hill overlooking St. Peter’s Basilica) and took us to a local pizzeria before handing us off to Massimo, our guide. Massimo grew up in Rome and knew all about everything there, adding little tidbits here and there (did you know that Michelangelo was gay?), and had history books with pictures to show how the Colosseum and Vatican had changed over time. Wonderful experience, clearly worth the extra money compared to a cruise ship-sponsored tour.

  • 08-Oct-2018

    We are a group of 6 and we have big personalities. Having a private tour like this was perfect. From the start of me booking this tour until the end-everything was perfect. Andrea was professional and super helpful since it was my first time coming to Rome and needed to make sure everything was perfect. Andrea was waiting for us outside our port and had waters waiting for us in the car. He took us everywhere we wanted to go and when it was time for our guided tour of the Vatican-things just got better. Our tour guide Massimo was truly 1 of a kind and would have loved to spend our whole trip with him. Please if you are looking for an amazing private tour of Rome-please book!!!!!

    Aim Limo is a one stop shop for all travel needs in Rome.We used them for all our transportation needs including airport FCO pick up, tour of Rome highlights, Vatican skip the line tour, transfer to Civitavecchia, full day visit to Pompei and Amalfi Coast while in Naples and meeting us at the port and taking us to FCO airport. The drivers were so very delightful with perfect English and very shinny Mercedes sedans. The greatest thing was just a few emails and all was ready for us, People on the ship asked how we found such service. Many told us how much they were charged for a car and driver the ship the ship arranged which was outrageous. You will not be disappointed choosing AIM Limo for all your transportation needs!

    We had Andrea pick us up at the cruise port. This was one of the best excursions that I have done including those offered by some high end ships. Andrea was the top of professionalism. The Mercedes van was comfortable, we had bottled water and WIFI. It was a nice drive from the Civitavecchia cruise port. We were taken to the Vatican. The Skip the line is worth every penny. We had the most intelligent tour guide, Maximo. I cannot say enough about how this was a great tour. This was my friends first experience at the Vatican. We had two children and they loved this tour. After the Vatican, we were taken all over Rome. We also had the best slice of pizza at Angeli and Diavoli Pizzeria. This well worth an excursion. We visited the Collesium, Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and sites through out Romes. The arranging of the tour was easy. We are returning to Rome next year., so I will use AIM again for other tours. Thanks Andrea!
