This was exactly as advertised. I would recommend this to all. Had a very good time and was able to navigate through Rome from buses easily.

Took a shuttle bus from ship to pickup point. Unfortunately, even though we had our confirmation papers, our names were not on the tour list and so there was some delay while the company figured out what to do. We were put on another bus which took us into Rome and we were dropped off at the Colosseum. Line up for regular tickets was less than an hour. Spent over an hour exploring - an amazing place to visit. Used the Hop-on Hop-Off to get to Trevi Fountain and then walked around area before getting bus back to Port. Way too much to see in a limited time visit. Long trip (1.5 hours) from Port to city.

This was a last minute choice the day before.and it was a great choice. First off if you are on a cruise ship you aren't going to see much of Rome..there is not enough time...from the port its 1 hr 30min....
each way and Rome is full of tourists!!! Taxi can cost you 300 Euros!! So you save time by getting on a van and just being dropped in Rome to catch the big Bus...forget doing the train and transfers adn walking.....you will spend the day trying to get there....Riding the bus around without getting off is about 1 hr 30 min....but we were the only people in a van coming from the port!! and it was really nice...DO give the company a number you have turned on here in Italy and will answer...we were to be a 2 with 5 more to be picked up and the other 5 did not answer their phones when they changed pickup location to right in front of the ship! as they brought a van to pick us up.......or text or email! It will take you 3 hours to see Vatican Museum so the hop on really lets you see more of Rome than you can be trying to get your self around...the traffic is horrendous and parking is non existent so just take the bus! Choose one tour...collesium or vatican....you will never get both done on a one day trip to Rome....and don't buy water from the street vendors....they reuse the bottles and
they are not sealed bottles...UG!!! watched one lady bust the guy and tore off the top and throw it...
carry a nice Stanley thermos w ice water!!!.....honestly saved us when Rome was 94!! and PS NO PUBLIC TOILETTS....so
plan your stops with restaurants and potty stops. usually cost you a Euro or 2 if you do find one!

It's not worth it. By the time the bus finally arrived in Rome, it was almost 11am and the bus was scheduled to leave Rome at 4pm. There was not enough time to see much of Rome. We missed our timed entry to the Colosseum because the bus left late and arrived late. When I booked my tour, the Viator representative said an 11:25am entry will be ok since that's an hour extra time of when the bus was scheduled to arrive. If you want to actually see sights in Rome, stay away from this tour.

was as mentioned. the bus picked us up and dropped us off near the place where the hop on hop off starts

, Dec 2017

Bus to Rome from port was easy to access and they waited for us in the morning- the hop and go we couldn't fully utilize as we left more than 30 minutes late and to get around took too long to get to the destinations we needed i.e. Colosseum

, Nov 2017

Customer service of the transfer was mehhhhhh. I know I'm about to sound real whiny, but I believe the transfer bus was advertised to have wifi but it actually didn't. Big Bus hop-on hop-off was consistent and frequent as usual.

, Nov 2017

A good way to get around Rome. Got to see all the landmarks with such short time left.

, Oct 2017

The registration at the meeting point and the bus ride to and from went great, nice and easy. Only suggestion, would be that the host/hostess on the bus could have provided a little bit of commentary along the way for those who hadn't been there before.

, Sep 2017

The tour bus kept having mechanical faults. We were dropped off and had to walk a distance to catch another bus in extreme heat. The next bus had no audio working. Overall the tour was a disappointment.
