  • In Rome Vans are better than Buses: Van = up to 8 seats, Bus = up to 50 seats. Note that Buses are not allow in the historical areas of Rome (official ship excursions from Cruise Companies are operated with Buses). This mean that the Bus will drop you off and you will walk for the entire duration of the tour (6/7 hours) to the other side of town at the end of the tour to be picked up. Best Viator’s Rome excursions are with private Vans. Bus in Rome has only a small number of authorized spaces dedicated to pickup/dropoff travellers so, usually, during the city tour you had to walk for about 4/6 miles. In a big group chance are that you'll have to wait much longer for people lingering at the sights and stand in line longer for the toilets or at the snack counter. You will also have much less one on one time with your driver and guide or time to ask questions, because you'll have to share them with a lot more people.

    This trip was awesome. It was summertime and temps were high 93 degrees and up. It was nice to have a driver to take us from place to place in an air conditioned vehicle it made the trip much easier. The driver and tour guide were great.

    They were on time and very informative. This was a perfect day trip off of the cruise. We had an airconditioned van with wifi and an amazing driver and tour guide.
    Great personalized tour in a limited time

    We loved the personalized tour with Ricardo and Sabrina. Ricardo was very courteous, helpful and took care of us at every step. It was nice interacting with him. He accommodated our requests beyond our expectations. Sabrina is very knowledgeable knows how to bring the best for the guests in a limited time. She knew the perfect spots for pictures. The van was very comfortable. We recommend this tour if you have a limited time and want to make the best use of it in a relaxed and personalized experience.

    Giovanni was a wonderful guide for our full day tour of the city. Could not have seen or learned as much without him. Our guide at the Vatican, Francisco, was equally if not more impressive with his knowledge and insights as he skillfully moved us through the crowds. Would definitely recommend this to everyone
    The Best!!

    With only 1 day in Rome we wanted the best tour and we sure got it!!! Paulo was incredible-guided is every where and showed us everything we came to see. Claudia really was great in Vatican City-this just couldn’t have been better!!
    Wonderful Day

    The was an amazing day. Tour guide was on time, super kind, and a wealth of knowledge. Took us to a ton a different places and kept us on time for the skip the lines. It was literally a FULL DAY. Got to see every single area we were hoping to see. The only disappointment was we didn't have time to go inside St. Peter's. Plenty of time in the Colosseum and Vatican
    A perfect day in Rome
    James_H, Aug 2019
    Our day in Rome with Paulo as our driver/guide was absolutely perfect. Paulo treated us like we were a part of his family that he was showing off his town to - really a great feeling. We were able to see all the major sights including the Coliseum, Vatican, St. Trevi Fountain as well as some unique vista points, parks, and unique parts of town. Paulo showed us to a great local restaurant for lunch...awesome food and service. This tour allowed us to make the best use of the one day we had in Rome, I cannot think of a single thing that would have made it better. Highly recommend!
    Great tour of Roma!
