Truly great experience. We had our own personal driver and guide for the entire day. No waiting in line, no trouble and we were able to see all the sights in great detail. We were on a cruise and for the little bit more expense we had this wonderful guide and driver and we were able to go inside the Vatican, Sistine chapel, St Peter's basilica and tour the Coliseum plus see the Pantheon and Trevi fountain. I would not hesitate to book this again. Everybody was very accommodating.
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
Give yourself a lot of time to get back. Rome is very crowded and has a lot of traffic. We were aiming to return on the 3:30pm bus, there was so much traffic, we didn't make it and had to take the 4:00pm bus back to the port. The bus was a little difficult to find, this is a good route if you like or don't mind walking
