Rome Departure Shuttle Transfer: Hotel to Airport

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The return shuttle was on time, our one problem was the speed the driver was doing through Rome, going down very small streets at high speeds, after picking up another couple we headed to the airport once again at very high and almost dangerous speeds, we proceeded to go down a dirt lane, under a motorway bridge into a scrap yard through a homless persons shetler again at high speed the driver telling us *not to worry i am taking a shortcut* - this we did not expect we had lots of time and got from the centre of rome to the airport in approximately 35mins, this we found was not acceptable but was a dangerous journey and only glad it was our homeward shuttle and not the incoming one.. Surely drivers have a speed to stick to and passenger safety is the most paramount thing !!

My Review

We found this a very worthwhile trip the tour guide was very informative although she did spend a lot of time on centain things and very little on others, on speaking to other people who also did this tour their guides gave them much more insight into the goings on of the vatican itself where we had most time spent on the artists history of the paintings - yes this was very informative but one can only take in so much and not remember everything about every picture which hangs in the vatican itself. All in all we did find the tour very informative and probably would not have seen as much if we had done it ourselves.I would reccommend people to go it alone as we did an go up the capula to the very top, it was magnificent views over Rome and we had a beautiful day to make it just brilliant.

Rome Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

After being told our driver would collect us in 10minutes, we waited a further 40mins !! this we felt was not really acceptable as at the start of our holiday we just wanted to get to our hotel. Once we got taken to the minibus - a 5min walk from the airport itself - we were started to see a sign saying **if you want to get to your hotel tip the driver** - we always tend to give our drivers a tip, but on this occasion no passengers including ourselves did tip the driver we found this quite cheeky. We were dropped off some streets away from our hotel as it was beside the trevi fountain, but then found out that other operators come to the small square beside the fountain to drop passengers off which was only 10 steps from the front door of our hotel which would have been very helpful when you arrive in a strange city.

My Review

After waiting over half an hour for our tour guide to arrive we eventually go on the way. This trip we found was not worth the money paid, yes it did give us a whistle tour of the main attractions but was disappointed in the guide, he was not very informative and found the driver going round the same streets twice to make it look like we were going further than we did. We were dropped off at our restaurant for our meal after a wait of 35mins we eventually got our starter then our main meal which was very nice but as we were just finishing our main course the tour guide came into the restaurant and told us we would have to leave!!! the waiter quickly gave us our desert but again the guide said we would have to leave!!! we did not get our coffee our after dinner chocolates the waiter had said was part of the meal because of the guide making such a fuss. this spoiled the whole night after looking forward to this so much as it had been a present for my friends birthday to celebrate in Rome - this did not turn out as we had expected - result - very disappointef!!!
