We had a wonderful tour and the staff went out of their way to successfully locate lost sunglasses!

Wherever we travel abroad we always use the hop on hop off bus. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the sites of Rome and stopped at the most important places. Really good and would recommend this excellent service to friends and family.

This is a fabulous way to see the better part of the city! We got in early on one day, rode around without getting off to see what was there, then rode the next day jumping off where we wanted to investigate more. Wish we had more than 2 days to see the city and surrounding area though.

The quick and easy way to hear things in your own language is fantastic!

We loved it.

The bus was all you advertized it to be.

Great way to see lots of sights and for us to get our bearings. However I thought we would just see the buses where we were and hop on, but we didn't, and I hadn't taken much notice of where we were told to get on!! So don't be like us . When you get on you get a leaflet and your headsets so keep hold of them for each trip. We booked for 48 hours and it starts from the first time you use the bus. Only downside was some stops we were waiting for 10/15 minutes before moving on.

Bus tour was a great way to get a feel for the city and see a lot of locations all at once. Ticket is good for a variety of time frames so we were able to use the bus the day after we went on the tour which was great just to save us some walking.

We booked the tickets online from home before leaving for a few days in Rome. We took with us the email which we exchanged on the bus with no problem and given a map showing the route. The buses were regular and had a running commentary through the headsets provided. If you have been to New York they are the same concept and were extremely good.

Was a great excursion.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Very worthwhile! This was our first time in Rome and although we had maps, it was wonderful just to ride the bus around the loop once to situate ourselves. Information provided on board was also very good. Would actively seek out these tour buses in other cities!
