It was our (a group of 6 girfriends) 1st time booking transfers via getyourguide & were slightly apprehensive about the service given that neither of us had travelled in Greece before & the return transfer rate was so reasonably priced. We contemplated about our transfer options (catch a taxi or train when we got to Athens) but relented on this option. We grew more anxious when our flight from Santorini was delayed by almost 3 hours, but the transfer service contact assured us that they would monitor the flight time & would be waiting for us when we arrived. We were so delighted when the transfer driver was waiting for us & kept me posted to exactly where he was waiting. His English was good & my girlfriends & I were comfortable with trip to our hotel & the overall service.
Arrived from the cruise ship by shuttle bus the bus for the tour is in the same depot. The area was chaotic and we had to stand around waiting to find out what was happening. Coach trip is about an hour and a half with a short comfort break. The trip doesn't include any guided audio talk, you can upgrade to another tour. Extra cost for entrance to the Basilica with guide using the express line. You need cash as they don't take payment by card.
Absolutely wonderful day! Our guide, Andrea, was personable and tailored our full day private tour to our wishes. We were picked up on time directly from our hotel. No problems whatsoever during the entire trip. We were able to enjoy far more unique sites in central Italy than if we had attempted to do this on our own with a rental car.
this is a "Round-trip", which is fine if you are only wanting to view a few highlight spots and not tour the full Vatican City; the couch personnel were very informative and helped up to navigate and plan our day. We would have liked a 'One-Way' options since we choose to book additional tour(s) and return via train late that evening
The tour was well organized. We were welcomed at the bus terminal and guided to our respective bus. In Rome a guide walked us to the hop-on-hop-off bus. The buses were reliable and at each stop was also a guide assisting with information. The trip was worth taking.
