Staff at Big Bus were very good. We actually walked places more than we used the bus, that was our choice. Bus was on time, free walking tours were helpful and on time. I still say the hop on off bus is the best way to see all the landmarks. Thanks Big Bus Tours.
We used this for one day in Rome to help us move around the city easier. The guide was taped and had some interesting information and available in many languages. The guides on site were just there to check your had paid to get on and sell you other tours. We did wind up purchasing a gladiator your from them to see the colosseum, palatine hills and roman forum which was a good tour. But it was confusing as to what we were paying for and when .
The bus was a great way to see many of the sights. The first day we did the entire circle and then made plans as to where to get off the next 2 days. There was always someone from the team close by to help with directions as well. The staff on every bus was awesome as well.
Tour was good. Unfortunately I was pick pocketed and had the tickets taken. At first the representative didn’t want to help us, however when he called his office, the lady there spoke excellent English, was understanding and more than happy to help us with new tickets.
I always like Viator, but it seems they need a physical address, which wasn't always provided this time for us to meet at the beginning of the tour.
We purchased the deluxe tix and had two days to visit the areas. Busses were very convenient and stopped at all o he major destinations. A great way to see a good deal of Rome in a short time and have free time to stay as long as desired at a particular stop as buses came every 15-20 minutes. We went at the busiest time of year and never had a problem finding a seat nor did we ave long waits.
As usual you see plenty on the tours and you can work out where and when places of interest you would like to come back to visit.The buses were clean and tidy, it took a while in some cases to sort out the various switches as some were awkward to navigate but overall okay. The bus personnel were helpful.
We have completed a lot of bus tours and we found the Big Bus to be a great tour. We take the Big Bus in the cities where available.
Plenty of buses and if you get the App you can see when the next bus is due - stops and numbers clearly marked and tourist information on the bus was very good.
The sites were great. But finding out where to catch the bus was an issue. We were afraid to get off for pictures. In fear of not finding next bus stop. The bus goes so fast you can't get good pictures from it.
We purchased deluxe 3 day Rome hop on hop off ticket and don’t recommend this operator. Buses seem limited as they wait ages at each stop. Earphone sockets broken, very poor narration- limited information - we were passing statues etc with no explanation given of what they were, quality of narration was terrible it kept cutting out. Stops are limited and run around the city so you have a walk from anywhere central. We had better experience of this operator in Athens and Paris, the Rome one is by far the worst!
The bus takes you near the major sights of Rome. We did a 3 day pass on the bus because there is so much to see. It's great you can get off and explore on your own and then get back on to continue your tour.
Weather was pretty hot. No A/C on the bus. Seats are crowded. Overall, good to see the sights but traffic in the city pretty bad!!
Though this was good transportation, the stops were not well announced or marked. We had to make several trips around at times to get off at the correct stop.
We LOVE Hop on Hop off Tours.....whatever new city we are in we try and go on one ! They are very informative (they give you headsets) you pick your language you want to hear it in and you can see and learn a lot about the city! If we have time we like to go around the loop to see all the different attractions and then will get off on the ones that really interest us ! We like going on top to ride (usually open air or they will put cover on if too much sunshine or rain) you really get a feel for the city ! You can buy a ticket for 1, 2 or 3 days depending on the amount of time you have.
After spending 2.5 days of tours, it was nice to ride around town and see the sights from a bus with narration I could hear and understand. We went on a walking tour that took us to the Pantheon where we left the tour to see the inside of the Pantheon. The buses were comfortable and on time and there was always someone there to show us where the stops were. I even caught a short nap! We did it as our last thing to fill in the gaps of what we hadn't seen yet.
