My husband and I took this tour in November 2016 and we'd recommend it to anyone, first time visitors and returning travelers alike. Our driver, Claudio, was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable, and the car was clean and comfortable. We had been to Rome previously but had places we wanted to re-visit like the Roman Forum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Trevi Fountain. But we also wanted to see several sites we'd missed in the pass like the Palatine Hill, Santa Maria Maggiore and the Pantheon. We saw all those sites and more. Claudio showed us many places in Rome we'd never have found on our own that added greatly to our overall knowledge of this wonderful city and our enjoyment of the day. Highly recommended!
Our tour of Rome was really great and our tour guide Livio was so knowledgeable about the history of Rome. He got us to as many of the main attractions we requested as you can fit in one day. He found a great place for us to have lunch with delicious authentic food. Livio was very accommodating and professional. He did a great job of keeping us on schedule to be back to our cruise by boarding time. Great value. This is the only way to see beautiful Rome in one day! Highly recommend.
I would definitely go with a private driver. Got to see much more of Rome than with an excursion.
Tour guide was the nicest man. Had drinks in his car, Bought us snacks and gave us a souvenir when we went back to the boat. Great day!
Fantastic tour. Great tour guide, excellent quality Mercedes mini bus. Everything was well timed and we had a full day seeing all of ancient Rome. Highly rated tour and for a fraction of the Cruise operators costs for similar trip.
Excellent service, friendly driver, who went above and beyond to ensure that we saw as much as possible on our day in Rome. Would highly recommend this tour.
Claudio was our guide and we absolutely loved him. He went above and beyond and took us to little hidden gems and off the beaten path spots. It was the best way to see Rome in a day. We highly recommend it.
This was the most fabulous way to see Rome in such a short time. Claudio is an excellent tour guide. He is knowledgeable, friendly and made great use of our time in Rome. Being on a private tour, we were able to get to places that the big tour busses could not and we were able to see things that were not on big tour itineraries, yet we saw all the fabulous sites of Rome. This was the only way to see Rome on such a tight time schedule.
Great day tour. thankyou to Santini our guide, for your fun personality and to try to fit in us as much as he could in our one day in Rome.
We had a private tour with Cruising Rome and Andrea was our guide.....I will say that this is the way to go. Andrea is the best! He had so much patience because I love taking pictures and with 3 cameras going I had plenty to focus on. Having been to Rome before I knew exactly where I wanted to go and we hit them all: Vatican City, Castel Sant'Angelo, Plaza Navonna, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Roman Forum, Colleseum and throughout the city. Hands down awesome!!! A Highly recommend this tour and Andrea.
Excellent tour and Claudio is an excellent tour guide. Tivoli, Rome, Vatican, lunch at a Claudio recommended restaurant...all in a very nice Mercedes. Full day and recommended tour...pick what you want to see and where you want to go. Thanks again Claudio.
Our driver-guide, Laura, was super efficient at getting us around to see all of our top choices in Rome plus some more! She was friendly, informative/knowledgable, and also helped us get tour tickets to visit the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica the day of so we could avoid the long lines/crowds. She helped us see everything we wanted to see in Rome and we had a great time. Highly recommend.
A lot to see and experience! Starting from the Vatican and touring around all the must see places in Roma! David, our guide took us everywhere we wanted to go. He was quiet in the car and mostly relied on the prerecorded descriptions of what we were seeing. He suggested a great local place to eat
David our driver was EXCELLENT!!! The trip was as exactly as advertised with no problems at all. David accommodated our EVERY NEED This is a must trip for all from the seaport to your hotel. We saw all the major sights of Roma and it was at our pace and schedule. FANTASTIC TRIP
Our driver Andrea was awesome!! We got to see the Pope in Vatican City at St. Peter's square!!! Because the Pope was there, the Basilica was closed. Andrea took us back to the Basilica at the end of the day to try again. He went above and beyond to accommodate us and to enable us to see as much of Rome in one day as humanly possible. Great trip and would highly recommend!!
Our driver Lavio was AMAZING!!!! he gave us great recommendations, tons of info and helped us throughout , he even took us to have the best ice cream we tasted in all of our stay in Italy!
Super recommended if you are short on time, very flexible and you wont be absolutely exhausted like you are from the caddle tours you see all around those larger groups that follow a sign or flag while wearing headphones and look super tired loved it!
This tour was exactly what we hoped it would be. We saw everything on our list and our driver was extremely helpful.
Our driver on this tour was EDWARD and he was brilliant using the car we only took about 70 mins to get to Rome city centre giving us extra time to visit the sites compared to the buses.We married up this tour with the Colosseum and Roman forum private tour and this worked an absolute treat.
This was an excellent experience. My wife and I were met by our driver Claudio right outside the ship. He was very nice and helpful. I chose to do a private tour since I felt this would be the best way to see the parts of Rome that we were most interested in seeing. Claudio essentially let us pick the itinerary and provided his own inputs and experienced which were very helpful. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who is looking for an efficient and very comfortable way to see as much of Rome as I think is possible in 1 day.
A very enjoyable tour. Our driver Livio was punctual, courteous and very informative. The Mercedes vehicle was comfortable, spotlessly clean and well stocked. I wouldn't hesitate to use this company again for future private tours of Rome
Very nice tour with Mario, worked perfectly for our family of 6. Wouldn't do it any other way!
Our tour guide Albertina was fantastic, we only had about 8 hours to enjoy in Rome. We traveled in a very clean and comfortable van. She was very willing to accommodate the itinerary so we could spend more time in the places that interested us the most. At the end of the tour, she gave us some delicious biscottis from her town. I highly recommend this tour to families with children or teens.
Our guide David was very friendly and helpful. We saw the most famous attractions in 1day. Great tour.
Perfect way to see Rome in a private van. Our guide Livio was very informative and helpful. Made our day in Rome very memorable! Thank you :
The tour in Rome started when we got off the cruise ship at 8:00 am in Civitavecchia and Livio was already waiting for us with a sign with our name on it. In the car their was working a.c. with cold water bottles and some mints. Livio came with a luxury Mercedes Benz van that had way more room then our 4 people group needed. Livio was very nice and friendly and had an amazing amount of knowledge. The port is 80km away from Rome witch toke us about an hour to get to Rome. He toke us to magnificent view point of Rome with roman water fountain. Livio toke us the regular famous places of Rome in addition Livio toke us to special points in Rome witch only the tour guides know. Livio toke us to an authentic restaurant in the middle of Rome witch was very good in giving us an authentic Italian environment with very good food. To summarize Livio is very recommended, he gave us a lot of information as an Italian point of view. Take in consideration that the tour is only 8 hour and that from this kind of tour you only get a small taste of Rome.
