Traveler Reviews

  • 25-Oct-2019

    We took the "Civitavecchia Cruise Port Shore Excursion with Full Day Rome with "Skip-the Line" Vatican Museums (including the Sistine Chapel) and Colosseum" tour offered by Viator with "Italy Best Excursions" providing our driver, Govani and our personal Rome guide, Francesco. We had only one day in Rome and knew it more than likely be our one shot deal to visit Rome. In the days time we had we were able to see and do everything on our list and much more. Although our ship offered extra tours to individual locations in Rome, we wanted to do much more....and we did! Many thanks to our driver, Govani, and expert/knowledgable Rome Guide, Francesco, for making our visit to Rome so enjoyable with memories to last a lifetime.

    Tour was excellent. Perhaps not for everyone, but a convenient way to see the major sites with a limited amount of time. Our driver Valentino was superb - knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. His recommendation for lunch, delicious and perfect. Ask for him if possible.

    This tour was Awesome. Our driver Giovanni was excellent. If you want to see Rome in a day this is the way to do it. We saw everything we wanted to see and Giovanni was so knowledgeable abut everything. We learned so much about Rome and have beautiful pictures and memories. If I could give it a 10 I would. Do not hesitate to book this tour.

    What a way to see Rome! Our driver had only the 4 of us and made sure we got to see everything there was to see in Rome! Plus hooked us up for a fantastic local lunch!

  • 05-Aug-2018

    Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and accommodating for the things we wanted to see. However, our big complaint is that he took us to the Colosseum one and a half hours before our scheduled time and they would not honor our

  • 17-Jul-2018

    We had such a great day visiting all the locations described in our tour. Our driver was a great guy who was very knowledgeable. He even made lunch reservations at a delightful Italian Restaurant. We ended our tour by meeting our private tour guide at the Vatacian. This is the only way to see the Vatacian and learn so much about it.

    My family and I had a great time in this tour. I would recommend to get a tour guide specially in the Vatican museums.
