Rome (Civitavecchia) Historic Tour Excursion Reviews
Again, a frantic tour running behind a very knowledgable guide, but too much was packed into the tour.
Lunch was a joke and the most unpleasant experience. Would rather have had two hours to myself to find a nice restaurant. Had your picture taken (whether you liked it or not) as you entered the restaurant, then you were pressured to buy the photo.
Tour ended by queing for nearly two hours to get inside the vatican.
Would have thought for 96e per person, a priority entrance would have been included.
Then we were only given ten minutes inside because we were late returning to the ship.
The guide drove us around the city. he was very knowledgeable, but we had to skip lots of stops to get to our app't at the Vatican.
We were taken on a panoramic tour of historic sites in Rome including the Colosseum, Circus Maxim etc. The tour guide was very informative and we were able to stop and take photographs at several locations.
Our Guide was very knowledgeable. A great day out.
Very good guide. Taken to see the colosseum , Trevi fountain, Pantheon, St Peter's basilica and the Spanish steps.
So hot and busy the trip was slightly spoiled unfortunately. Also the tour guide's English was not very clear so much of her talks were lost. Would go back when cooler and less busy. That wasn't Thomson's fault though!! Can't blame them for the hot weather!!
