Highly recommend this tour. It is very fast paced and there is a lot of walking involved. If you would like to see Rome in a day without going into the vatican, etc. and just see the sites, this tour is for you. We were lucky enough to have visited Rome previously before so just going back to see the sites was perfect for us. We were on a cruise and our ship was docked overnight. The next day we went back on our own to go into St. Peter's Basilica.

Used this primarily as a transfer from port to rome, but was expecting to see at least one or two sights before hopping off to get to our hotel. We were happy to abandon the tour at the first stop. The whole experience was horrible from start to thankful early end. From the overcrowded bus with constantly coughing passengers who refused to wear a mask or even cover their mouths to tour guides trying to upcharge for each experience, it was a nightmare. We got off the first stop, but if we had stuck with the tour it was a 10min walk to St Peter’s Square and 20min max stay. Colosseum was going to be a drive by and I think they were going to have 30min at Trevia fountain. It was cheaper than buying a transfer from the port, but not worth it at all.
Horrible excursion in Rome
Sandy Snow J, Jun 2019
On the way to Rome, we were asked if we wanted to rent ear phones at 10 Euros each. We had 3 in our group. As we were suppose to get on/off the bus at numerous locations, we thought that by being near the leader we would hear things. Her voice was so soft that she was hard to hear standing next to her. We missed 99% of was she said. Others with the ear phones could not hear much either. It was a national holiday so we could not get near the Vatican and other places we were looking forward to seeing. The bus could not get into locations, so we walked for a solid 6 hours. We were suppose to have 2 1 hour free times at sites but only got 30 minutes to eat and see the Trevi fountain because we had to walk everywhere. The national holiday had been planned long in advance and this tour should have been forthcoming with this information. I would have cancelled the tour if I knew what we had in store. My son has tremendous neuropathy pain in feet and legs and I booked this excursion thinking that there would be more opportunities to sit and rest. We were stuck walking. There were many other people who were in pain, tired, angry and disgusted. One woman's foot was bleeding. We were stuck walking because we did not know how to find the bus for the trip back to port. The guide walked very, very fast which was hard for many in the group. She did her best. We all should have been given free ear sets upfront as she was impossible to hear with 50+ people trailing her. Evidently, there was suppose to be another person following in rear but she left. I have taken many, many excursions during my life of travel and this was hands down the worst one. You should refund the money I paid for the 3 of us!!! I have never written a negative review in my life but this was the worst experience ever. We could not visit many of the sites, no free time, learned nothing of the history of Rome because we could not hear a word she spoke, hot, miserable, and painful walking. This was the excursion from HELL. Due to national holiday, the company should have given us a true description of this excursion and let the people decide to proceed or cancel.
excursion en espagnol alors que nous avions demandé français !

Tour en espagnol alors que nous avions demandé français. Nous avons été averti un jour avant une fois le paiement effectué. ! D'autre part, il pourrait y avoir un de vos agents à l'arrivée du bateau afin de nous aiguiller ver le bon terminal. Déçu de votre prestation logistique.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Bonjour Je vous remercie de m'avoir écrit. Malheureusement, il peut rarement arriver que le nombre minimum de participants ne soit pas atteint, nous vous proposons donc une langue alternative, et si vous n'acceptez pas, vous pouvez demander un remboursement. Lorsque vous descendez du navire, des navettes gratuites vous conduisent à la sortie où vous trouverez notre personnel prêt à vous accueillir. Notre numéro d'urgence est toujours disponible pour le service clientèle. Cordialement Civitatours
A éviter
Magalie_P, Sep 2023
Nous avons été prévenu la veille que notre visite ne serait pas en français. Nous avons raté le bus le matin de même pas 5 minutes, personne n'a essayé de nous contacter alors que tout était déjà payé . A nous d'aller à rome et de trouve le guide.... Le bus nous pose à un endroit et tout se fait à pieds, autant faire la visite vous même ce qui vous laissera bien plus de liberté à flâner dans les magnifiques ruelles. Excursions qui nous a coûté 90 euros en rajoutant le train et rien appris puisque traduction en espagnol et anglais . Très très décevant
Viva Roma y Andrea. Olé, olé ...

La visita de Roma con Andrea y Osito ha sido genial. Es un guía estupendo, ameno y completo. Íbamos con andador y fue pendiente de nosotros todo el tiempo.
