There are several HOHO tour companies but I couldn't fault this company. They had a very regular service with informative staff. Overall a good experience I would recommend.

The staff on the busses was friendly and efficient. The busses are in good condition. Overall a good experience and one of the best buys that we made on our trip to Roma. Recommend going to the bus directly with your voucher. Going to the Visitor Center at the Vatican was a waste of time if you have a voucher. Great time in Roma. Do not try to drive in Roma, Too many vehicles and too small streets.

Be sure to sit on the top tier of the bus it is difficult to see much from inside. We enjoyed our tour and this enabled us to see much of what Rome, Italy has to offer. We are older and not able to walk long distances.

Excellent way to see all the major sights of Roome.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Was a brilliant way in which to see Rome and exactly what we required and the Skip-the-Line vouchers are a must. At the same time be aware that the bus routes can change and we couldn't find Stop 6 on the Vatican side of the river as it had been moved over to the other side, this wasn't mentioned in any of our documentation. Also your e.mail voucher only gets you further vouchers on the bus which then have to be exchanged for Entrance Tickets to the venues which you require to visit and some of these can be a distance from the bus stop. Overall though, using the Hop-on/Hop-Off is something we would definatley do again.

The people on the Roma hop on hop off tour were very friendly, and they announced their stops. We took a different hop on hop off tour the first day and they never said anything, you had to make sure you knew what stop you got on and how many stops you had before the one you were getting off it was the green line. The Roma hop on hop off was also very considerate, it was raining, and they did everything they could to keep the seats on top dry for their passengers. They were on time. I would recommend to everyone to take the complete loop first so you can see all of Rome and decide what all you want to see. It was great seeing the city on top of the bus. The hop on hop off bus tour Roma also has a good website to tell you all the stops and what you will see there and they also give you a map when you first get on as well. The only problem with the tour buses is they don't start until 9:00 a.m. and if you have tours before that you have to find a different way of getting there and they stop early evening, so you don't get a night ride, which would have been nice. I would highly recommend the Roma hop on hop off bus tours.
