    Excellent Small group tour to Rome from cruise ship; Jan was superb in his knowledge and explaining history and key sites.

  • 09-Oct-2019

    Our driver was very punctual and knowledgeable. He navigated the traffic and busy city scape extremely well. We really enjoyed his lunch recommendation and the gelato stop. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting a great overview of Rome. It does not disappoint!

    David was fabulous. He really maximized our time and gave us fantastic information on the city and sites! The van was very comfortable and by far the best in all of or small group tours!!!

    A long day and a lot to see, but Matteo met us at the boat and drove us into town, giving us history and background. As requested, he stopped (twice) for gelatos, and gave us a whirlwind tour of the fabulous Roman sites. We were amazed at his dexterity in driving (and finding parking places) and he made sure we were on our own but never lost. We didn't wait in long lines and got a lovely overview of this amazing place, which was exactly what we wanted. I'm so glad we went in May, as the crowds are unbelievable later in the summer! All in all, it was an excellent tour and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

  • 03-Jul-2019

    This was a great tour. Max was very knowledgeable about Rome and took us to places we never would have seen with a large group. I would highly recommend this tour it is worth every penny!

  • 12-Aug-2018

    Our guide was knowledgeable and showed us a lot of different places that the buss tours where not able to do. Meeting places and explanations were great.

    Great way to see Rome in a day!!
    I was so pleased at how much of Rome I saw on this small group tour .We had 7 passengers on board the small van I am so glad I went with this excursion, because I would have never been able to see or do what I did if we had been on one of the Cruise line tours, in a bus. The van enabled us to be dropped off right around the corner from the sights. We were able to concentrate on spending more time at the major sites , e.g., the colosseum and St. Peter's and use our remaining time to efficiently and effectively see the other not-to -be-missed sights that did not take as much time or attention e.g., the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Circus Maximus, etc. Tino was a great driver and very informative too.

    Bravo to Damieno! Very well led tour. He gave us great insight and details without overburdening us with irrelevant facts. He pretty much let us decide what we wanted to do and how long we spent there. Our small group had an amazing trip to Rome because of his flexibility and his resourcefulness. Great day, great tour, great driver. Highly recommend for those who are more independent and dont want to be strapped to the hip of a guide who provides way too many details to be useful. This is the way to go for those of you who want to be pointed in a direction and allowed to explore on your own. A

    Super tour with energetic Francesco, who took us everywhere including right next to St. Peters Square just when the pope appeared to give a blessing. The small group and minivan allowed us to see a lot without waiting for others, and was the BEST way to see Rome.

    Fabulous experience!!
