Fantastic day

Our driver Lucca was a perfect gentleman. Although we (granddad and grandma )have been to Rome twice before and thought we had seen everything, he took us to places that was out of this world with the most fantastic views, especially his little secret place " WONDERFUL". Lucca was a perfect guide and answered all our grandchildren's never ending questions . Charlie 11years old was promoted to co-pilot of Mercedes people carrier which was new and immaculate . Libby 10 years old was treat like a princess. Nothing was an issue. We all say THANK YOU Lucca, for a wonderful day. X X X X X X Fantastic value for money .

Couldn't have been better!

We chose this tour at the last minute when all excursions through our cruise line were cancelled because of a strike. We couldn't have made a better decision! Our guide, Vittoria (sp.?) was PHENOMENAL!!! She was warm, charming and so passionate about the history of her wonderful city. Seriously- she was so full of information and had the answers to every question we asked. Lots of great sights, LOTS of walking, but a most enjoyable experience. Take my advice- request Vittoria if you possibly can (hope I got her name right).

Seen a lot, great driver and always right in the middle

Our driver picked us up at the ship on time and had great route suggestions for the day. At all tourist highlights, he found a parking space just around the corner, so that we could look at a lot. We got skip-the-line tickets for St. Peter's Basilica in advance, he drove us there and picked them up on time. During the trip we received a lot of information and were able to ask anything that interests us. There were 8 of us and it was absolutely worth it.

very nice visit to Rome with a guide passionate about his profession

excellent tour of Rome with a passionate guide. good conduct Italian guide did not bother us, before each visit to monuments he did a Google search to give us an explanation in French. We highly recommend this visit formula.

Our driver was excellent. He knew the city very well; he gave us excellent suggestions and convenient pickup and drop off locations. The vehicle was clean and safe. We saw more things in Rome than we could have on a tour.
