We are very happy with the whole day. Skip the line is the way to go. After seeing the long lines of people we knew that we picked the right tour. Our driver Alessandro spoke very good english and was on time and easy to contact when required. He was very informative and told pointed out a lot of interesting sites to visit on our next trip to Rome.

Our driver Paolo was wonderful. He spoke fairly good English and shared a lot of information about Rome as we drove around. The skip the line passes were great and saved us a lot of time standing in lines so we could see more sights.

A Real "WOW!" Experience

I hosted a group of 20 people on this tour and it was a great experience. Everyone was impressed with the skip-the-line access..."I felt like a VIP going past all those people in that long line!" is what many of my travelers expressed. I definitely recommend and will certainly use Viator for their prompt and professional service.

We booked three separate small groups to travel as one. Our drivers were very friendly and knowledgeable, getting us around the city expertly. One of our drivers, Alex, even went so far as to book our group a lunch reservation at a spot near the Vatican. It was perfect. At the end of the day, they adjusted our route in order to fit in a visit to the Trevi Fountain. The private cars with AC were definitely a hit. I would highly recommend this tour!

Best way to see Rome by far

Can't say enough about our fantastic driver and the ease with which we traveled from venue to venue. So much better than the group tour scene. Works perfectly for those of us who have been to Rome before and don't need the "play by play" history lesson. We were only in Rome for one day introducing our youngest daughter to her first ever trip there. Allowed us to go to more places than we could using other means at our disposal. Would definitely use Viator again.

Rome -yes; Customization - No

Did the skip line tours but the word "including" is misleading. The driver only wanted to take us to the skip the line places not all of Rome. He was a safe driver. He communicated he would only take us to places where we had tickets. According Thisto reviews, and our experience, every driver doesn't honor all of Rome. This was our 2nd trip into Rome from port, we saved time and maximized the Vatican and the Coleseum. St. Peter's Basilica line was very long but free to enter. However, the tour instructions should be more detailed with meetup times and locations in between places. Time passed by as we waited for the driver to show up at the indicated pick up point. He was waiting for us to call him internationally; if patrons should use WhatsApp, they should say that before tour date because our calls did not go through in Rome when trying to contact the driver.

Dear Customer, many thanks for your review, every tour is different from another, in one day it is impossible to visit all of Rome. for more precise instruction is better if customers and drivers will communicate the through the modern system as whatsApp, but it is enough agree in advance time and place for the pick up and use the phone only in emergency case. anyway, I hope you spent a good day in Rome kind regards Carmen

This tour was absolutely breathing taking!!! HUGE thank you to our driver Paolo who wasn't just a driver he was like a mini tour guide! This tour was amazing from the time Paolo picked us up to the time we left he was professional, courteous, kind and was a pleasure to be around. We even sang italian songs together and joked around with Paolo theought the ride.He took us to see many things in rome in the short amount of time we had! It was worth every penny we spent!! Paolo even asked for a picture with us at the end of the tour!!! What an amazing day spent with an amazing guy!! Grazie Paolo! From the Italians of Canada The D'Amato family

LOVED OUR TOUR OF ROME

We really enjoyed this tour. We were picked up by a Mercedes limo and our family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our day. Having a smaller vehicle than a bus allowed our driver to manipulate the narrow streets of Rome and get us within a block of the Trevi fountain and Piazza Navona. Of course, skip-the-line Colosseum and the Vatican museums are a MUST. The summer crowds in Rome are intense. I would do this tour with this driver again in a heartbeat!

Paolo was an amazing driver/host. He was literally prepared for any situation with umbrellas, wifi, candy, and wipes! We were on a cruise and this trip was half the price of the cruise line with our own private driver. Great day and great experience! Will definitely use again!

The tour was fantastic. We were picked up from the ship and dropped back on time. We did everything we could in a day. Even though we didnt hire a guide. One of the drivers spoke english and was very informative and friendly. I will use them again.

Look out for the tickets and entrences offered!

Eventhoug the driver was extremely kind, was very difficult to communicate with him, since he spoke very little english and all his comments were in Italian. But the really unforgivable issue was that someone (either the driver or the operator of the tour) drop the ball and we were not able to enter the Coliseum, since the boucher we were provided with had to be redeemed in another site and when the driver found out how to solve it, was too late to enter the Coliseum; we lost the tickets that were already paid for 😡. Just because of the kindness of the driver we were able to made it up by seeing other sites

Dear Armando, many thanks for your review, I'm very sorry for what happened, I have spoken to the driver and there was a misunderstanding, he didn't read carefully the instructions I sent by e-mail to him, he confused the point where take the tickets.in your package, in addiction to the colosseum, I have included also the visit of the Mamertine prison, and I'm very sorry you didn't see neither one nor the other. he tolds me that, to make up for this, he showed you other places of Rome. your review taught me that I have to check more than once that everything have to be clear for my collaborators kind regards Carmen

On all of our cruise stops I was looking forward to this shore excursion the most. The reviews looked great but of course you are always nervous on what to expect. Our driver was outstanding and was there to meet us as we got off the ship. It was a whirlwind day and we were zipping from one stop to another but were able to see all the main attractions - Vatican museum, Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Square and Basilica, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and a couple other quick stops. We ate at a wonderful restaurant by the Spanish steps. It was a whirlwind of a day and our driver told us that we got lucky with traffic but regardless, it was amazing! Fabrizio, our driver spoke perfect english and was great at meeting us at pre-determined times as promised. The van was spacious, clean and cool....a five start experience across the board. We have tons of pictures and will talk about it for years I am sure. HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION...:)

Private family tour of Rome, Italy

We had a private driver who knew Rime quite well. We purchased tickets to the Vatican Museum and Collusium in advance which helped us skip the lines. Our visits to certain areas was short, but that was the only way we could see and make all the stops we wanted to see most of Rome. Our driver recommended a great Authentic Italian restaurant with homemade pasta on the menu. It was a great day!

Family Trip with Two Teenagers

It was awesome to have your own transportation. But, I paid approximately 800 dollars, and it truly was pick you up, drop you off, give you tickets, and then you go off on your own. He did tell us a few things, and our driver was nice, but just was nothing more than a cab driver. I think we could have saved quite a bit of money buying the tickets on our own. It wasn't worth the money we paid for this excursion. The Colosseum was amazing and the skip the line was well worth it. Our teenage boys did not like visiting the Vatican. The museum was extremely long, and it was so hot and packed with people. It was like being in a cattle drive with no way out. It was great visiting the Sistine Chapel, but it is at the very end. I think the boys would have been great just seeing the colosseum.

Our private driver was Giulio. He was a good driver and he was very professional his beautiful Jaguar was spotless. Giulio drove us to the most well-known sites where we had skip the line access to the magnificent Vaticano including the Sistine Chapel and Museums and inside tour of the Colosseo. We also saw Foro Romano and Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps under repair at the time. Giulio took us to Campo de' Fiori where we enjoyed the outdoor market and a delicious lunch. We fit in so much in a full day but we didn't feel rushed in any way. It was a great introduction of Rome for us. Our next visit will be for more than one day!
