Super organized despite little time!

The time in Rome was relatively short for us, but that's because of the shipping company and not because of the provider. If you want to see some things in Rome you have to hold on, but you could also just get out at a few places and otherwise see the sights from the bus. The shuttle from the port and back worked great, the bus was air-conditioned and the bus driver was very nice. We were totally satisfied and would book again and again! (PS: above all compared to the prices of the shipping companies)

I booked this at the last minute because we missed our tour from a different company. Turned out to be an excellent experience! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very detailed about his explanations. He was also very patient with all the tourists in our group and was more than willing to answer any and all questions we had for him. 10/10, would recommend to all!

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.

Excellent experience. Our guide was beautiful. She had an awesome amount of knowledge, was energetic and funny. Great way to see the colosseum, forum and the palatine hill. Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon.

Our tour with Silvia was amazing. She was a great guide and very knowledgable.
