5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

The perfect way to see Rome on your first day. You can ride through the streets and learn about the various sites and get your bearings. Then, tackle individual items later at your leisure.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This was another fantastic tour, so much to see and without the bus you miss so much of the city, and when you are upstairs you get to see a glimpse of other things along the way, things you wouldnt see if you were doing your own thing, and its so much easier than walking to everything yourself as you get around so much quicker and then have the time to take in the sights once you arrive without any stress
