  • Rating: 2 “Unhelpful”

    Reviewed by DRA ISABEL from LISBON, Portugal on December 10, 2014 With very few stops, we had to walk a lot in the same way, and it doesn't go to San Paolo's Basilica. As my hotel was on Corso Vittorio Emmanuele II, almost every interesting place was closer than a Hop-On Hop-Off stop. 72 hours ware too much!

  • Rating: 4 “Good but small details have to be worked out.”

    Reviewed by Michael from Boisbriand, Canada on October 8, 2014 This tour was useful for getting around the major attrations.The only problem is that the stops are not well indicated,also be aware that on saterday pm.the bus does not stop at Trevi Fontain.

  • Rating: 5 “Regular, reliable and a great way to see the city”

    Reviewed by Christine from Windsor, United Kingdom on September 22, 2014 Excelllent value for three day pass. Regular and reliable service. This company provided individuals at most stops who were helpful and informative.

  • Rating: 5 “Great idea to see the sights in Rome.”

    Reviewed by Sheonagh from Denny, United Kingdom on September 16, 2014 I've visited Rome twice in the last year and have both time booked the Hop-0n Hop-Off bus as it is an excellent way to see all the sights in Rome and also you get to hear a bit of the history of Rome at the same time.

  • Rating: 3 “Average service that could be improved!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Lisboa, Portugal on September 8, 2014 Hop-on Hop-off: 24 hours is actually from 9:00 to 19:00. So, 22 euros per person is a high price! Ear phones were poor, information was too little and most of the time we heard music. Wi-fi didn't work properly! Portuguese was not available, though it is the 5th most-spoken language in the world.

    “The street sign (at the meeting spot) should be in the in place when you arrive! It was about 100 meters down the road, which lead to confusion.”
