Did several excursions through the ship and private is definitely worth it. Private car that took us very close to every site. Saw we everything with about half the steps on a ship excursion.
Antonio was great. Very personable and knowledgeable about Rome. We would highly recommend him. We got a lot in in one day, especially coming from the cruise ship.
We took a tour of Rome on May 1st. This happened to be Italy's Labor Day, so the Vatican and the museums were closed. My group of six was picked up from our cruise ship and traveled to Rome in a new 8 passenger van. Our tour guide John was amazing! He first took us to the Catacombs, then the Coliseum, Circus Maximus, Trevi Fountain, Appian Way, then drove by the Pantheon, and St. Peter's Square. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke fluent English. A totally amazing tour of the city!! John drove us back to our cruise ship and arrived with 30 minutes to spare. If you're visiting Rome from a cruise ship, I highly recommend this tour of Rome!!
Worth every cent!! Lucca our tour guide was outstanding! His historical insight of the city made it so memorable. In addition, he knew exactly how to maximize our tour experience by bypassing lines and crowded areas. He was always able to find parking places (no small task), great views and restrooms.
Luca was fantastic and knowledgeable, an excellent tour. it was smooth and all was amazing. Even though we had been to Rome before, we chose this tour because we wanted a lot of basic information. We felt like all of us were happy with the history and explanations - even my son who takes history of Rome in college.
