This was a fun way to tour Rome. We had very little time in Rome following a cruise to the Greek isles. We booked this tour literally at the last minute and the company was very accommodating. The weather was beautiful so having the open air experience added a nice ambience. We booked this tour because my husband has mobility limitations and walking was not an option for him. The tour guide was awesome. I wish I could remember the young man's name because he deserves the recognition (old age). It was obvious he loves his city. He took us to some lookout points that provided breathtaking panoramic views of the entire city. He allowed ample time to stop and take pictures. Being in the midst of the Italian traffic added a small sense of excitement but our guide ensured that we were safe at all times. Because the streets of Rome are cobblestone or have uneven payment, there were some bumpy moments but my husband didn't experience any discomfort. Lots of fun!
The tours themselves were great! The company hosting the tours was...less great. We made sure to get there the 25 minutes early and thank god we did. They did not have our tour purchase on any list so they ended up upgrading us to a semi-private group for the Vatican (which was awesome!). Our guide was excellent but she didn't explain anything until we were already through security at the Vatican. Then, in the afternoon. we went to the Colosseum to meet at 1pm and no one was there. The summer hours state 1pm and winter hours 3pm. Well, we called and they said the tour started at 2pm. Very confusing. But our guide, once again, was fantastic and the Roman Forum portion was really fascinating. Recommend the tour but the company could do with some organization improvements!
To compré dos tickets para este tour que se supone era en español y para un grupo de máximo 6 personas. Nos buscaron al hotel. Cuando bajamos resulta que solo éramos mi madre y yo por lo que resultó un tour privado: excelente! Lo negativo es que el guía me dice que la persona que hacía ese tour tuvo un inconveniente y que el tour era en inglés. Yo hablo inglés-por lo que para mi no había problemas pero mi madre no y por eso lo pagué en inglés. La compañía no tuvo la cortesía de llamarme para decirme de esto por lo tanto no quedé contenta. Tuve que traducir todo para mi madre. Y a mi quien me da la propina?! No me pareció honesto. No querían canceláramos el tour supongo. Nos llevó a todos los lugares primordiales y dentro de todo lo demás estuvo bien.
Mico was our named driver and we asked him to take us off the beaten tracks, we have been to Rome a few times and thought we had seen all there was to see but no he took us on a journey through the streets of Rome to monuments and parts of Rome we never knew existed. It was such fun on the back of a golf buggy it’s not for the faint hearted, it was such fun and the time went over and the guide kept going. He appreciated the tip which is not compulsory but it was much deserved as he was so full of knowledge and knew his history. Would definitely recommend!!!
First of all I would like to thank Ricardo and Juliano for the beautiful day, I enjoyed every moment both were very knowledgeable and even when asked about things outside the tour they would answer. I enjoyed Juliano’s tour cause he told us stories about artists and their history, Such a nice people, nice tour I made some friends and I will definitely bring my family next time. Love you
