Just so pleased to have booked a private tour as had done it before 7 years ago with a ship excursion and this was awesome with a wonderful gal , very informed and just saw so much and missed all the crowds. Took us to a small restaurant to eat to save time. Only bad thing was the driver was to meet us outside of gate at port according to our paperwork and he had gone inside and wasn't there when we first come off the ship so we sort of missed each other. Fortunately my son had a cell phone to call world tours and got it straightened out but was abit uneasy until he found us.
If you are on a cruise ship and only have 1 day in port to visit Rome, this is the to go. We were met by our driver shortly after we got off our ship and were taken to the Vatican steps where we met our guide, Elanora. She was wonderful. She was able to adjust our day to allow us to do a few different things we wanted to do, yet we still were able to see all the main sites. She was the perfect combination of knowledgeable tour guide and gracious host in what she called her city. When our tour was over, our driver got us back to our ship in plenty of time for dinner. It truly was a wonderful day and well worth the money.
This tour was well worth the cost! The tour began at the Vatican Musuems and we skipped what appeared to be a couple hour wait. After the Vatican Musuem, we toured the Panthenon, Trevi Fountain, and the Colloseum. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about each site. Great way to see Rome in a day
The private tour was well worth the money. Our guide, Annalisa C was excellent. She had everything organized from transportation, tickets, and even took us to a place with the best Gelati in Rome. We didn't have to wait in the long lines for our tickets or entrance into any of the main attractions. However, when we left the Vatican the line for tickets was around the block. Annalisa's knowledge on the history of the Vatican and Colosseum was informative, interesting, and made the tour of this amazing city exactly what I had hoped for. I was nervous about booking an excursion outside of our cruise, however, I'm very happy I did and would have no hesitation to book again through Viator on my next cruise. Great job Annalisa!!!!!
Our tour guide was knowledgeable, skilled and very experienced in maneuvering us through the crowds and sites which optimized our time and experience. This all day tour is fast paced, and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole day!
Guide extremely knowledgeable
Our driver Simon and our guide Raphael were both amazing. We were able to tour the Vatican extensively see Trevi Fountain, The Pantheon and tour the Coloseum. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided in depth information for all locations. This was my third time to Rome, but learned more in one day than on week long stays. Most ship sponsored tours have up to 50 people trying to follow one guide through extremely crowded places, while we were able to move quickly and see exactly what we wanted. An expensive tour, but well worth the money.
Very informative as well as beautiful. It's a tough day but well worth it. Our tour manager had a PHD and was awesome. His back ground was in Anthropology. We couldn't have asked for more.
David was an amazing guide. We had a fabulous day in Rome and were able to see the highlights in short order.
Our driver was friendly and professional. Our guide, Silvia was outstanding. She was very knowledgeable and passionate in her explanations. We had an amazing day.
