Our guide, David, was a veritable font of knowledge, and his passion for Rome really came through. Plus, he was very accommodating of our children, always making sure to find shady areas, and plenty of breaks for ice cream, water, and bathrooms. An unforgettable day.

The best tour I have ever been on in my life, and that is saying a lot. We had a guide that spoke English better than most native English speakers I know. Our guide had a PhD in archaeology and knew art history so well that there were things that she could point out that we would never have picked up on if we visited Rome a hundred times. A private tour is more expensive, but you get to see what you want to see when you want to see them at your pace without having to wait on anyone. No wasted time waiting in lines. If you are going to go all the way to Rome, this is definitely worth it.

Booked private tour for family of 6. Would highly recommend a private tour if you're short on time and haven't visited this area before. We talked w/others on our cruise that did public transportation and they struggled w/heat and crowds. We had a clean, comfortable van that our driver maneuvered right up to the spots we needed to go which is no small feat in Rome. Got to pack the most into our short time in this spectacular city.

About the tour.. We had a bit of confusion on where to meet the driver. In hindsight, the instructions were clear that we should meet outside the port terminal, but when we got off the ship we saw other drivers at the gangway. Being new to the tour process and thinking maybe something changed, we waited at this spot. After a bit and no driver, we called the local contact and found out where to meet up. We took the shuttle and found him, but had lost an hour by the time we got going. We wound up getting everything done, but felt a little stress early on. A note in the tour instructions that some drivers will be by the ship, but yours will be at the terminal would prevent this. Once on the road, we were able to talk w/our guide, David, and settled in for the drive. We elected to tour St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, Pantheon, Piazza Narvona, Trevi Fountain, Colosseum outside only and the Forum. David did a great job of adjusting the tour as we wanted, getting us past the long lines this alone is worth the price of the tour, and sharing his knowledge of the history and important points at each stop we made. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and his English was excellent. He also took us by a take-away sandwich shop down an alley by the Pantheon that was wonderful. By the end of the day, we were very tired but had been able to see all the things we wanted to see. Our driver got us back to the ship in plenty of time so even though we got off to a rough start, the tour was everything we had hoped.

Our driver was a smoker and it was unpleasant. He did not smoke in front of us, but in the vehicle.

Our guide was the best! Bright, kind and passionate about her knowledge to share. We were with our grandchildren 10 and 13 with their parents, she did an excellent job sharing the information and keeping everyone's attention. A perfect experience with the guide.

Our tour guide Annalisa was great. She was very informative and personable. She had everything organized to take us through all the sites in our limited amount of time. Our driver was very good from the pier to and around the city and back to the pier. I will tell my travel agent about this tour company so she can recommend it to other travelers.

No better way to see Rome in one day when arriving by cruise ship. Superb guide, great driver, saw it all, and the guide took us to a local restaurant rather than a typical "tour" restaurant.

My husband and I decided to do this tour because of the reviews we read, and are so glad we did.
Our driver Melissa was timely and professional, and our guide Tiberius (hope spelling is correct) was awesome. Tiberies was very knowledgable and answered all questions. We had a great day.

This tour was absolutely the most incredible and memorable of our Mediterranean Cruise that my sister and I took. Since neither of us had ever experienced Rome before, we knew that we had to do it right and by choosing your tour, that is exactly what we did. Our tour guide, David was absolutely fabulous and extremely knowledgeable on all of the history of Rome, especially the Vatican. Mauricio, our driver, was courteous and capable to ensure that we got back and forth from the cruise ship to Rome in comfort and style. For anyone who has never experienced Rome before and even for those that have, I would highly recommend Viator Tours and especially David or delightful and knowledgeable tour guide. It exceeded our expectations in every way.

I was very pleased with the high quality of service provided. We really could not have asked for more. Our ship arrived late so we were a little rushed, but we still saw everything on the itinerary. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. We would not hesitate to use them again.

Wonderful! Outstanding! Super tour with a fantastic tour guide! Nicolas (sic) is the most wonderful guide we could ever expect. We wish that we could have booked more tours with your company in the other countries visited. His detailed explanations of each site visited were so wonderful that we are so happy to have had the privilege and good luck to have this particular guide. Thank you very much.

You can't really experience Rome in day but this tour was great for a few highlights. The tour guide was outstanding. Her knowledge of the sites was amazing and her passion really shined through. Her English was also very good. We booked through Viator at half the cost of the similar cruise excursion. Well worth it!

The guide and driver were great -- knowledgeable about the sites, knew the best routes around the city and were particularly adept at that getting us through the mass of other tourists so we didn't have to wait long no matter how crowded things were. We were very pleased and think it was a good value.

By far, this was the best day we spent in Italy. Our guide was amazing. Her knowledge of what we were visiting and the best way to avoid the crushing crowds made the day enjoyable. She got us from place to place without incident while watching out for the older members of our group. The Vatican museum and St. Peter's were more beautiful than any pictures we have ever seen. The Sistine Chapel made you catch your breath and just stand there in awe of what Michaelangelo had accomplished. Everyone, no matter your faith, should see this beautiful place. I am so happy we chose this tour rather than others we reviewed. Not having to wait in long lines gave us more time to enjoy what we had traveled there to see. It was an extraordinary experience.

Can't praise our guide Francesca enough. Francesca is so knowledgable on the history of the Vatican museum and of the Coliseum that it made the day fly by. Francesca's passion for the topic made the information come alive. Our lunch stop was wonderful and the food and service were outstanding.
For anyone thinking about this tour I highly recommend it and hope that you are lucky enough to have Francesca as your guide.

WOW! what a great adventure Rome in One Day was. It is just as it is advertised. I believe we saw most of Rome in a day. Our tour guide kept us moving forward and on track. Thank you Nicolai. Our family loved it. 2 Adults and 2 Kids (7 and 11)

We had an excellent tour with a very professional guide, who showed excellent knowledge and with passion, which has to be commended because of the frequency of the tours and the crowded venues. Would definitely use Viator again, very well organised for cruise ship tours.
Many thanks
