Our tour was fantastic! Our guide was very knowledgeable and planned a great trip for us. When I come back to Rome, I will definitely book this tour again and request the same guide. Rome is impossible to explore in a day on a cruise that is 1.5 hours away, but this tour allows you to see all the highlights of Rome. Our tour was amazing and the lunch was the best meal of our trip. We will definitely be revisiting and booking. Also we were often told that it was a great time of year to be visiting because there were no long lines.

This tour was the" highlight" of our whole vacation! It was breathtaking. Our guide was the best of the best. She was so knowledgeable about the history and took the time to explain everything we were seeing. Thousands of people in line and we walked right to the front. Our driver also was fantastic, taking us through the narrow but full of life streets of the city of Rome. We asked them to take us for the best pizza in Rome for our lunch and the best Gelato to help make our trip to Rome complete. I can only say we had the BEST of the BEST and recommend to everyone this is the only way to see ROME! Well worth the money! Thank you for making our last day the most enjoyable and memorable! Rome ….AH! Breathtaking...

We chose this tour because we wanted to see as much of Rome in a day as we could -- and we succeeded! We were met by our driver right off the cruise ship and made our way to Rome. Our driver was wonderful -- knew all the roads and spoke wonderful English. We met our guide, Alessandra, at the Pantheon. We can't say enough wonderful things about our guide: knowledgeable, fun, knew everyone in Rome -- she simply made everything feel really accessible in such an overwhelming city. Our driver and guide were a great team. The skip the line tickets for the Vatican Museum and the Colosseum are priceless. We also managed to have a wonderful pasta lunch. My family has amazing memories of our day in Rome. Thank you to our guide and driver!

My family and I were on a cruise up the coast of Italy and decided to book a private tour of Rome instead of heading out on an excursion with our cruise boat. and we are so glad we did! The whole experince was seemless from benig picked up at our port, to getting to Rome, and seemlessly seeing the ENTIRE CITY! I've been to Rome twice before but for my family members who had never been, this was the best way for them to see it all and get a feeling for the amazing history and culture this city has to offer! LOVED THIS TOUR!

Booked this for a family trip with 3 members who had never been to Rome and only had a short timeframe since we were on a cruise. Driver, Gabriele, was waiting and super knowledgeable about the area, including several trees. We met our official tour guide, Marlene, for the day who was also excellent and skipped all lines to Colosseum and Vatican. Great way to see the city and major highlights and know you'll make it back to the boat. Well worth the money.

This tour was all we hoped for and much, much more! Our guide, Natalia was amazing! Her knowledge and enthusiasm was so much fun and informative, We were in awe of this wonderful city and all its history. Our driver, Daniel, was very considerate and also had lots of little tidbits that made our trip from the port, in the city and returning to port, a sightseeing joy! Overall, I can't say enough good things abut this excursion and

We booked the VIP Tour of Rome through Viator based on recommendation received from previous cruiser. We were so thrilled with the tour from the moment we were picked up at the cruise ship port to the drop-off at the end of the day. Our Tour Bus driver Nick was fantastic, he wisked us away quickly at 7:30am to get a start on the roads to Rome to avoid traffic. He provide d very helpful information throughout the day and was always finding the fastest route to our next stop while navigating the crowded and narrow streets of Rome. Once we arrived in Rome, we picked up out Tour Guide for the day - Franchesca, she was simply amazing! She was so knowledgeable and attentive to our group's needs to make the most of our day long trip exploring Rome. A special moment was when Franchesa directed us over to a priest she knew for a special family blessing in the Sistine Chapel. NIck and Franchesca were simple the best and made our tour of Rome so special!

This is an excellent tour if you need to see Rome in a day. We were picked up at the port and made our way to Rome where our guide joined us. Out guide is an archeologist and knew everything there was to know about Rome. We started at the Pantheon and visited the various fountains, Trevi included. She kept us on time and communicated with our driver to pick us up in various places in Rome. We went right into the Colisseum and the Vatican. Our driver suggested a great restaurant for lunch and our guide and driver joined us at our request. This was a day we will never forget! Thank you Elisa for an excellent tour!

Great tour from beginning to end and highly recommend. With only one day in Rome we wanted to see as much as possible, this was really a great experience. Our Driver was waiting for us right as we got off the cruise ship to take us to Rome where we met our guide. Our guide, Nicola, was very knowledgeble and anxious to share the history. He also tailored the tour to what we wanted to spend more time on. Was great to have private driver, not only to/from the ship to Rome, but he drove us a close as possible to each landmark. Also great to have Nicola share his insight about each place. Skip the line tickets was another great perk, able to get in without wait to the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and the Colesseum. In one day we toured each of those, as well as the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and more. Even had time for an great lunch at a small restaurant recommended by Nicola. Definitely recommend making time for this. The great thing for us about the private tour is 1 the attention from the driver and guide and 2 flexibility - we could decide lunch or keep going, how much time to spend at each site, etc. Would never have gotten to see so much in a large group. You can't see Rome in one day, but we got as close as possible!

Total emersion in the guides love of the treasures of Rome. Picked up at our ship in a Mercedies , great driver, great private guide with quick entry to Vatican, the basilica and the Sistine Chapel, the museum and the Colocium. Plus. All the famouse foutans, circus maximus sites and many more. With complete historical and unusual insites that you won,t get from the regular tours. Our guide ran us hard to make certain we learned to truly appreciate Romes treasures. We covered more and learned more in this one day, then we did on a previous three day trip a few years ago..if you have one day in Rome, this is the satisfying snd complete tout
