A colleague recommended this sightseeing tour, and I’m glad she did. I’m not one for bus tours, but this was a great way to get around the city to visit the major attractions that we wanted to see in the short time we stayed in Rome. A really good deal for a guided tour (via headphones) of the beautiful and historical streets of Rome. My husband and I got some of our best pictures from the bus!
My husband and I loved this tour! We happened to be the only persons on the tour, so we had the tour guides all to ourselves. Our primary guide, Matteo, was training a colleague, Gianluca, on how to give the tour. Both of them were funny, polite, knowledgeable about history and wine – just overall really good people to take this trip with. I unfortunately wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t take advantage of the delicious wine and food, though I tasted it and could appreciate the high quality of everything they put out for us. My husband, however, thoroughly enjoyed the meats, cheeses, olive oils, etc., as well as the various wines served. The vineyards are gorgeous and the people there (including the owner at the first vineyard!) were incredibly gracious.
But, really, I can’t overstate how lovely Matteo was in his role as driver and sommelier. And easy on the eyes too! :-)
Definitely recommended for couples and groups of friends. I think it'd even be fun as a party of one. :-)
I’m rating this a 3 out of 5 as we were able to do the walking tour but not the gondola ride (due to inclement weather). Our guide for the walking tour was fantastic. Great personality, funny, knowledgeable – couldn’t have asked for a better guide. We were disappointed to not be able to go on the gondola ride but understood given the weather conditions.
