Part of our Rome Limo package. Again we arrived later than the original schedule so our time was cut short. Another private van and driver met us at the port and drove us to Vatican City where we had another excellent guide to take us through the Miseum, Sistine Chapel and the Basilica. Our driver took us to lunch then to the Coliseum where our same guide took us through the ruins and also to the Forum. We were unable to do the rest of the sightseeing planned as Norwegian again cut our time in port short. Read Less

Lukka provided very little information. He was driver and guide, unlike our other tours where we had a separate guide. We were told we would not have time to go inside the Colosseum and St Peters, both of which we wanted to do. Turns out there was plenty of time except it was too late to get Skip the Line passes for the Colosseum as requested. We took it upon ourselves to get in line at St Peters and had plenty of time. Would not recommend this company. Read Less

We took a 13-1/2 hr tour to Pompeii & the Amalfi Coast, planning on using a ship excursion to Capri or another tour in Naples. The trip was limited to 16 passengers, and the Pompeii guide was an archeologist. Both tour guides were fantastic, and we really enjoyed this trip (got to Pompeii early, before cruise ship crowds). Pompeii took 10,000 steps on my fitbit though! We also took a Vatican tour. Unfortunately, Secretary of State Pompeo visited the same day. We were not allowed to leave the Sistine Chapel during the time that he & his entourage incl. the Secret Service also entered. Our tour guide told us that we couldn't go into the Basilica or St.Peter's Square during Pompeo's visit (the Pope's scheduled appearance in the Square that day was also cancelled due to Pompeo's visit). It was disappointing not to be able to see the Basilca. My kid took a walking tour of Rome and the Colloseum, which he said was very interesting -- but noted that the Colloseum was a LOT of walking!

Same as we did in Naples, had a private van for just the four of us. My wife & I had been to Rome previously but first time for the couple traveling with us. The drive from Civitavecchia was easy and enjoyable as the driver gave us many options of how we wanted to go through our day. We stopped a St. Paul's Basilica outside of Rome which was not even known to us as a part of the tour. Unbelievable place. Only one or two other tourists there. Driver said he liked to offer this because it was never crowded. We saw a lot of Basilca's and cathedrals on our trip but this one stands out as the one I remember most. We picked up our private guide (highly recommend) and spent the day visiting the Vatican City, Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and many other sites. Having a private guide for just the four of us and "skip the line tickets" at the Sistine chapel and Colosseum is the only way to go. Actually felt a little guilty walking past the long long lines of people waiting to get in. But since I was in a church I figured someone would forgive me!!! My only regret is that I didn't book more tours at other ports with Italytours.EU. Did it all online. Great company to work with. Read Less

Met at the ship by our driver. Small group of 8 for a Full Day in Rome. Our Van was comfortable, clean and new. Our Driver was very friendly, knowledgable and safe! She took us to a few lookout spots for some great photos.... We stopped at the Colleseum first, where a few of our group had purchased tickets to go in for a guided tour. A few of us did not, so we had some free time to wander around. We then headed to the Vatican where we were met by our Amazing tour guide. She was an artist, and her passion for what she did really shined through. I was blown away by our time there. We then stopped at the Trevi Fountain where we were given free time to have lunch and wander. We had about 1 hour and a half. We ended up having time to also stop at the Spanish steps. Another plus of booking the private tours was that their vehicles are small and the drivers know how to maneuver the narrow roads getting us closer to our destinations. Read Less

This tour provided us with a quick oversight of the many tourist sites in rome- spanish steps, fountain de trevi, etc as well as an hour to walk around the outside of the colosseum ( which looked fabulous and i think you would need half a day to explore just the colosseum ) we then had a tour of the vatican with a separate tour guide and she was fabulous .. the vatican tour whilst a little rushed was fabulous thou. This tour wasn't quite as good as the one we experienced in Florence and i think our driver/guide was a little too laid back and almost seemed disinterested at times ...ie when we stopped for a quick lunch break he advised where to eat etc but omitted to mention that the Piazza Navona was around the corner ( we explored and found this gorgeous square but the other members of our group didn't cause the guide didn't mention it ) Read Less

Great experience. A private tour through LivItaly Tours with a incredibly knowledgeable guide (Gio). We wouldn't have been able to see half of what we did or get as much out of what we saw without Gio's expert guidance. Fast paced tour that hit all of the highlights with more than enough depth for us. Really made the most out of our time in Rome. Not inexpensive but it included our drivers, professional guide, and all admissions tickets (head of the line) for about the same as the cruise's large bus tour that saw far less. Plus we could customize the itinerary and go at our own pace without 60 other people in tow. Read Less

They picked us up at 8:00am and brought to Gianicolo Hill, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, and Vatican. It was $300eu plus $30eu tip for the day for all eight of us in a private van. I talked to several others who paid that much for just 2 people. They saw more, but they were rushed from place to place. We were able to go at our own pace. I wish our driver Mario spoke better English. Fortunately, my father speaks Italian. It was totally worth the money. If you are interested, contact Albertina at tourromeitaly@gmail.com. Read Less

We booked a private 3-day tour in Rome pre-cruise; RomeInLimo had received some great reviews on various sites, so we booked a two-day tour, plus an evening Illuminated Rome tour. For the two day's car tour, we had Enrico, who was fabulous. He was informative and passionate about his City, and took us to places we would have missed if we tried to do it on our own. We also has Massimo for the Vatican Museums, who was excellent - he supported his guiding with iPad photos to help us see the stories and know what we were looking at. Overall, the experience was well worth the money, which was less than what I thought it would have cost. Read Less
