Tour Content was very good but Guide (Antonio) needs to work on skills

Overall tour content was very good and organization was excellent. Venues visited are exceptional and make the tour worthwhile. We missed the other larger coaches going to the Catacombs by going there first. Our group beat the rush at that venue. Very nicely done. Guide at Catacombs very knowledgeable and excited about her job. We had 2 French ladies on our tour that needed French translations which our guide (Antonio) provided very nicely. However, he didn't outline to the group very well that he would need to provide narration in English and then in French. A man from Miami, Florida become upset with Antonio giving 'too much' explanation in French. Thought guide was spending more time in French when he should concentrate on the 95% of the group that spoke English. Antonio should have given the English details and asked the English to move to 'next spot' while he outlined details in French. Keep English busy while doing providing French. Organizational skills need some work.

Historic Christian Tour in Rome Reviewed by

Great , regular service. Would recommend.

Great service, but please be aware that for the Vatican and Trevi Fountain for example, the bus drops you in the area rather than right at the exact place. I expected that we would see these places just from the bus. Having said that, I would still use this service again, it was great to hop on a bus after a long hot day, and there is still lots of amazing things to see. As well as the bus driver there was a member of staff on board, I found them to be really helpful and welcoming.

Excellent staff across the company, routing needs to improve

Good for use in Vatican city and for seeing a few of the key Rome tourist places but two things about the bus. Firstly, the route needs to be bigger or run a second circuit. Secondly, the bus stops are really unclear when you are in the street looking for it. The staff on the buses are exceptionally friendly, polite and helpful. The 'inclusives' for site visits are good. Value for money? Probably.

Really good and cost-effective way to see Rome for the first time

Easy to book and pay for prior to leaving home. Staff happy to greet and explain how the service works. Staff also smiling and happy to see you even when returning time and time again. Recommend the multi-day ticket. Use the first journey to see what there is, use the map to note which stop is nearest to what you want to see, then go back the following day to hop on / off as you like.

A very handy way of getting around Rome.

A great way of getting around Rome and getting an idea of where things are. The Audio tour was brilliant although at times was out of sync. Most of the tour operators were very helpful and pleasant with a few exceptions. Buses were clean and well maintained.
