What people are saying about Roman Forum

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)

Well organized

Stop / pick up directly between Petersplatz and Trevi fountain. Many sights can be easily reached on foot. Hop-on hop-off therefore makes redundant unless you use the 5.5 hour stay with extreme sightseeing without a break. 1 round with the tour takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Collosseum is about the middle of the tour.

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.

Great tour, again at any time with this provider

The transfer from Civitavecchia to Rome was punctual and easy, the offer of the hop-on hop-off stops was optimal. We saw a lot, the information on the buses was extensive and selectable in different languages. Would do it again and again.

Everything great

Everything worked out ... the transfer with a super friendly and helpful companion ... the trip on the Hop on Hop off bus and also the return trip to the ship. Really recommendable
