We had a a fabulous day with Leo. It was like spending a day with a Professor of Ancient Roman and Etruscan History from a top university. The four of us had been to Rome before so we asked him to take us to sights unfamiliar to us but so worth it. I highly recommend Leo

Absolutely fantastic trip, we were met by Luca at the ship and as it was a Saturday breezed into Rome :-
As it was our first visit to Rome we were flexible and just said to Luca lets do the top sites, I had bought tickets for Colleseum before direct from Colleseum site,the best way so Luca took us past the queses right up to the entry and we were in.
from then on we visited loads of decent places,Forum, Spanish Steps Pantheon,St Peters Square,Circus maximus, Trevi Fountain, where i have to apologise to Luca for nearly giving him a heart attack!...I unfortunately cut my head open going for a shortcut under some iron railings :- so staggered back to Luca's vehicle pouring blood..poor bloke though i'd been mugged!! Sorry mate! plus more..... we stopped for a brilliant italian lunch in a local restaurant and had a coffee stop earlier in the day..we stopped up in the hills for great views..Luca is a top guy, good company, knows his stuff, full of good information, gets you right close to the attractions and picks you up conveniently when you're done..no pressure and very personable...would 100 recommend booking him and we'll be sure to when we get to Rome again it really is a beautiful city...meeting him and doing this trip was a real highlight of our cruise and looking forward to seeing Luca again sometime in the future..you never know we might even get to sample mamas cooking :- :-
Thanks Luca..you're a star

Leonardo was a 11 out of 10. we have been to Rome many times but learned and enjoyed the time with him more than any. Special man who knew everything about the city . he is a very happy man and delights in his presentation which was infectious! Will definitely use him again....

Our day trip to Rome with Leo was the highlight of our Mediterranean cruise vacation. He picked up the four of us at the port, and drove us to the Vatican for our 10:30 tour, making quick stops along the way to view several ruins and to visit the Trevi Fountain. He was so very knowledgeable about all of the sights and shared lots of interesting facts. He recommended a lovely little restaurant, where he actually brought out his guitar and serenaded us while we ate! After lunch, we arrived at the Colesseum for our prearranged tour. Leo used every minute that we spent together wisely, pointing out so many interesting sights. He pulled over and urged us to hop out to take a quick look at the Pantheon, pulling right up almost to the front door. No matter the questions we asked, he seemed to know the answers. Rome was wonderful, but we felt that our tour guide absolutely made the difference between having a good visit and a great one!. We highly recommend this tour company, and, of course, Leo.

We had a wonderful day with Leo, and experienced more than we had hoped. Leo gave us a great overview of the history of the area on our ride from Civitavecchia to Rome. He not only took us to each of the sites we requested, but added a number of additional areas. We had plenty of time to explore, and saw more than we would have been able to on our own. This day was one of highlights of our trip thanks to Leo, and his knowledge and enthusiasm.

We had a FABULOUS day with Luca!!! Our family of four my husband and myself and my aunt and uncle were with him and saw much more than our new friends saw on the ship's Ultimate Rome shore excursion! We had 1030 tickets to the Vatican which we got on our own. After getting into port at 0800 we arrived at the Vatican at 0930 and they didn't hold us to our tour time. Luca instructed us on the quickest way to get into the Sistine chapel, since that was the prime thing we wanted to see for the record, get into the Vatican museum and THEN stay to the right. He gave us a map and told us to call him when we were ready and he showed up within seconds!

We also had Colosseum tickets at 1330, which Luca said was perfect! He took us to the Pantheon which no one from the ship said they saw and we went in there...amazing! Also took us to a small little square where we had lunch at a little pizzeria off the beaten path. Stopped at a few other places where he took us inside and told us the history and showed us the underground ancient part of the city and we saw the Trevi fountain. Again, at the Colosseum, he met us when we were done within seconds of calling him!

To finish off the day, he brought us to a number of other places and then to the site overlooking the ruins and the landmarks of the city the place where Three Coins in the Fountain was filled...the apartment...absolutely amazing. Luca was fabulous and we'll request him if/when we ever return to Roma!

Thank you, Luca, and give Rudy a hug from us!

Excellent tour with Leo. This private tour was the perfect solution for getting us from our cruise ship with our luggage, onto a bespoke tour of Rome and then to Fiumicino for our flight home. Highly recommended.

We had George as our driver for the day and he was excellent! He got us to so many lovely sights because he really knew his way around Rome. We enjoyed our tour very much with him!

What a wonderful experience! I highly recommend this tour if you have only a quick day in Rome. Such a great way to avoid the crowds from our cruise excursions and tailor your own day. Definitely the way to see Rome and, honestly, our guide treated us like a member of his own family. Truly recommended!

Our driver was Amor. OUTSTANDING!!! Well worth the money! He helped us make sure we got to our tour guide, took us to a local restaurant instead of the tourist' ones as well as many other sites that we wouldn't have know about.

Because there was 4 people in our group we decided to book a private van and driver to meet us at the port for our visit to Rome - Patrick met us at the port and it was a dreadful morning rain very heavy - Patrick quickly got us seated in the van and for the next 1-1/2 hrs he gave a consise history of the city -when we arrived he took us straight to a coffee bar close to the colosseum - he then took us to the ticket office - arranged to meet us after at a certain point - as it was still raining he arranged with his office tickets for the Vatican Museums/'Sistine Chapel - he took us to see all the major sites which we couldn't have covered otherwise - so a big thank you to Patrick who was very knowledgeable about everything and made sure we saw as much as we possibly could on such a very wet day - he was total gentleman and most helpful to 4 ladies 2 youngish 2 oldish!! - he certainly knows his city and it's history - i would certainly recommend a private car to a party of 4

Amazing, fabulous day in Rome with Luca as our driver. Very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable. Our group of seven had a great time exploring Rome in a very comfortable vehicle. We were able to customize our day based on what we wanted to see and then we let Luca take us to places he recommended seeing. We also enjoyed a great lunch at a quaint Italian restaurant per Luca's suggestion. I would highly recommend this day trip. Thanks for all the great memories.

Our tour was fantastic. Our guide was waiting for us at our port and was extremely knowledgable about the city, where to go, what to see and how best to avoid the lines. In fact he even secured last minute tickets for us to get into the coliseum and walked us to the front of the line right into the arena. Five Stars and well worth the expense...which was fairly priced for two people!

Our friends who took the bus-based ship from the cruise ship received nothing like this more personalized 6-person with one guide trip.

Our driver Luca was excellent! He made sure we got to see everything in our allotted time. He even
took us to places we didn't know about. I would definitely recommend him.

Excellent tour. Luigi was a great tour guide. We had 2 young kids with us who also really enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend this tour as it allows you time to see the major highlights at your own pace.

Our driver and tour guide, DAVID, was AMAZING!!!! David was punctual, friendly, funny, personable and a pleasure to spend the day with!!!! David was in contact with other tour guides and maximized our time by bypassing the attractions that had long waits to attractions with shorter to no lines and then at the end of the day we returned to the attractions that were previously busy to find no wait. His ability to get around Rome and to fill all of our time with sightseeing was remarkable and skilled. When we told David of our wish to have Gelato he took us to the best Gelato in Rome and even put on an apron and went behind the counter to help scoop. By the end of the day we felt that we had found a friend in David.

Absolutely with out a doubt the way to go if you are trying to see Rome in a Day. First off our driver LUCA was amazing. Luca was waiting right in front of the gangway as we left the ship and was parked just steps away with a practically brand new luxury van. We had already purchased a Skip the Line to the Vatican for the morning and was hoping to see the Coliseum as well. Luca Politely asked if we would consider making some changes to our schedule so we could see all that wanted to see, We are so glad we listened to our friend Luca. Luca made all the arrangements at no added cost. We visited the Coliseum, the Parthenon, the Forum, Piazza Augusto, and the Vatican. Luca also managed a few other surprises as well, with bringing us to a very nice little restaurant for lunch and on our way back an amazing Gelato shop. Thank You Luca and Viator for making this a very memorable trip.
