    Alessandra was the best guide we have ever had. Her knowledge and experience was exceptional. She made our day just perfect! Our drivers were also fantastic. We highly recommend this tour. 10 stars!!!

  • 30-Jun-2023

    Smooth pickup in the morning from our crew ship port, they took us in a private van into Rome with a stop along the way for pictures, then met up with our tour guide to see the sites around Rome. Always nice to have a driver and guide coordinating pickups when needed to take you to the next destination. Maria was a great and informative guide who hit all the spots we wanted and Marco was an entertaining driver. We loved every minute. We decided on a sit down lunch but that turned out to be a mistake as the restaurant was incredibly slow and took too much of our site seeing time. Grab and go is best, next time we’ll know better or choose a better restaurant. Despite being a crowded holiday in Rome and having limited time, we enjoyed the tour immensely. Highly recommended!

    Marco and Nicola were great. These guys were so much fun and very informative, in our opinion after seeing some of the other group tours and their sheep herding mentality the private tour with these guys was worth every penny. Very professional, on time, safe and the lunch was fantastic. I am not sure if you can request Marco and Nicola but if the company would let you we very highly recommend them. Thanks for a great time and eye opening tour.

    Our guide, Valentina, and driver, Marco, made us feel like the most important guests ever. We took the tour the day of our cruise disembarkation and got to see everything in Rome with such interesting information provided at each site and all of our questions answered. At the end of the day we were dropped off with our bags off at our hotel. We couldn’t have asked for more! Also, our daughter has celiac disease and Marco arranged for us to have lunch at a restaurant that was wonderful (seriously amazing pizza!) and celiac disease capable. It was a perfect day in Rome thanks to these two amazing people. Highly, Highly recommend.

  • 10-Jul-2022

    It was probably our best tour ever. Marco, our driver went above and beyond. He went out of his way to accommodate. We were able to see everything and much more than we expected. Our tour guide was the best ever. Very bubbly and outgoing. She was so knowledgable on every topic. My Grandsons appreciated things that I never thought they would care about. Can’t stop talking about it.

  • 01-Jul-2022

    This tour was worth every penny! We got off the cruise ship and the driver was waiting for us. After loading all our luggage we went to the Parthenon, a gorgeous church, the Spanish steps, the colosseum and the Trevi fountain - ALL BEFORE LUNCH! Then we had an amazing lunch at a restaurant that included appetizer, pizza, pasta, wine and dessert. After lunch we went to the Vatican and saw the museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica before being dropped off at our hotel. All of this with both a driver and an extremely knowledgeable tour guide with us the entire day. It was really incredible! I can't recommend this tour highly enough - especially if you only have one day in Rome like we did.

  • 03-Dec-2019

    We were picked up at our cruise ship with no problems! The 5 of us set off for Rome. Met our guide Alexandria who was awesome! Took us everywhere,knew everyone,we never waited in line! Could not sing her praises enough! Definiatly take this tour

    Our driver and tour guide were excellent.im not a big museum guy.especially art.our guide made it interesting even for me.he was also extremely knowledgeable so my wife who is very into art was happy.all and all would use them again.

  • 14-Nov-2019

    Very knowledgeable guide and jumping the lines is a Must; even in "off-season", the lines were incredibly long - we walked right up to the front each time. However, our time at the Vatican was way too short, we literally rushed through St. Paul's in les than 10 minutes and had no time to observe and ask questions.
