The guide, Irene, was EXCELLENT. She really knew her stuff and was kind and thoughtful toward those in the group. She took time to ensure that we were all together and were benefitting from the whole experience. We would highly recommend this tour.
It was especially interesting since 2 days later, the whole world was watching the areas we had visited a few days before.It made it all more relevant.
Of the 4 Hop On Hop Off bus groups available, ours seemed to be less available.One driver took about 10 mins. in the midst of the tour, to chat with his girlfriend who met him enroute! The next day, the bus was very late at the Maria Maggiore stop and the clerk said we needed to upgrade for 5 Euros each to extend the tour. 40 mins. after collecting 10 Euros from us, she announced that the bus Co.
had "lost their cetificate to operate" and were ceasing the bus tour there and then!!! She did return our 10 Euros after much cajoling. What a shock to be left stranded in the midst of Rome. I would NOT recommend this particular HOHO bus Co., but there are at least 3 others offering better service.
Although our driver wasn"t at the airport on time and spoke zero English, he was polite and the journey to the Port of Civatavecchia was quick and easy.
