Go outside port drop off. Look for your name immediately On small sign. Away from Crowded bus tours. See authentic small town, meet the local meat & cheese man..very hospitable. Lake is warm for swimming. Erna was great showing us the sites. Thank you Erna ! We could not finish the outstanding Italian lunch. Catered to vegetarians! Boat did not make port until next day and GYG made a call to arranged the tour again ! In 5 minutes ! AT NO EXTRA COST. 12 day cruise....a tour each port....By far the two GYG Tours were the most Authentic and enjoyable. Thank you GYG for connecting us with guides like Erna! I am sold on GYG.
Andrea was a great guide. He could not have provided for a nicer day, doing something new rather than going into Rome for the day. We loved the drive along the Ocean to Bracciano. The visit to Odescalchi Castle was well worth it, both interesting and not at all crowded. Lunch in town was good and we had the opportunity to drive along the lakeshore beaches and take a walk on the lakeshore Boardwalk (and have a gelato) in the next town of Trevignano Romano before returning to Civitavecchia. We loved learning the history of the area and ideas for a future trip. Thanks Andrea!
The tour itself is excellent, the guide is very enthusiastic. Easy to find the meeting point and convenient drop off. The only draw back is they could manage the timing of the bus better. The bus send us back to the port 25 mins later than expected, leaving us only 5 mins before the all aboard time. So a group of us have to run to the port shuttle to catch the last shuttle back to ship. A bit scared that we would miss the ship but luckily we are all fine and we are not alone.
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.
Very rewarding experience and most impressive service. Our guide, Patricia, was well versed in so many cultural and historical facts about Rome and it's people and artefacts. She was so informative and helpful and the skip the line made us feel privalaged. This really helped us to fit so much in when we had such a short time frame to meet up with our cruise ship. Highly, highly recommended
