5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This is the fastest and most convenient way of getting to know some city if we dont have much time there. As we stayed close to Vatican Ciyt, we started with it. It is really worth to bye the common ticket with entry to Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel. We didnt do it before, and seeing the long lines near St. Peters Bazilica, we regreted it and bought separate tickets to get in and see.

It was a great experience. The guide was så nice og very knowledgeable. Everything was so good exept for the headset: we could only hear what the guide said, when we were very close to her.
My youngest son has autism and also for him it was a success and a great experience

Fabulous way to see Rome especially if you only have a short time. We did the 48 hour ticket which was perfect for our two day flying visit. Got to see all the major sights with good commentary.

This was a fantastic tour for getting around Rome! We took the bus the first time just to drive around and see all the places it stopped. There are many many stops! It was perfect for my mother-in-law who had some knee issues and trouble walking sometimes. Great tour!

Since I had to take 45 min train from our cruise ship, I forgot my purchased voucher and had to purchase another at train station. Loved it as you are able to see or skip things you wanted. Drivers friendly. We were given head phones to hear about sites, offered in about 5 different languages.. Yes would recommend as not their fault my ship parked so far away. Ha
