We were recently on a Viking Ocean Cruise, but could not get a Viking excursion that we wanted. So one of the people in our party found a private tour with DGS Tours,
There were ten people in our group. We were divided between two Mercedes Benz vans. Our drivers were Georgio and Pedro. We chose our agenda and were reminded that we could be as flexible as we wished. Basically, they would drop us off near the entrance to a site and pick us up as we exited. There was very little walking. At the Colosseum, one of them walked us to the entrance to make certain that we were in the correct line to avoid the crowds.
We visited the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, The Forum, Colosseum, and more. Our driver also gave us history lessons as we drove through the streets.
We asked to eat at a local establishment rather that a tourist stop. They took us to Trattoria Pizzeri with owners Dino and Toni. This alone would have made the trip worthwhile. Our waiter, Amadeus, kept bringing course after course, kept the wine flowing. Finally, several desserts appeared along with baglio Baiata Alagna Zibibbo, a dessert wine that I never got to try. Because they also brought out a bottle of limoncello that I couldn't get enough of.
We continued our tour with the sites of the Vatican.
I would highly recommend DGS Tours.
