We booked a full day small group, skip the line tour while visiting Rome on a cruise. They picked us up from our port and we were in a van with 5 other people. Unfortunately 2 of the other guests needed canes to walk and 15 minutes was spent discussing whether they could get a wheelchair to access the coliseum. The older gentleman decided not to do the tour and just meet us at the Pantheon but his wife still came and really held us up. We ended up only having 45 minutes of free time for lunch between the Pantheon and the Vatican, rather than the 1.5 hours we were supposed to have. Although I cannot blame the tour company they clearly advertise this is a strenuous walking tour, it was still very frustrating on our end as an active couple in our 30s in Rome for the first time. Plus, this couple was from the Oceania cruise line which departed 3 hours before our Royal Caribbean cruise so we couldnt even extend the excursion because they would have missed their ship. On a more positive note our tour guide Sarna?? was very knowledgeable and we had headsets that allowed up to hear her very clearly, even if we wandered off a bit to take pictures. Also, the skip the line access was so worth it! We walked past a ton of long lines and we were able to see a lot in our allotted time that we likely couldnt have done if we were not part of this group. Overall, it was a good tour that would have been a 5 star if we had been with the right group of people.
With only one day to see Rome, this tour was well worth the added cost over the usual bus tour. We never could have seen as much on our own, either! A really great tour.
Unfortunately, our driver went to the wrong cruise ship causing us to wait for an hour after our scheduled pick up, so we were rushed throughout the day to try to keep to our schedule of 8 hours in Rome. Once in Rome, our guides were amazing and very knowledgable, so the tour part of our day was excellent.
This was truly miserable. Youll find yourself walking about 7 miles by the time its done. The guides were simply machines, not engaged with us at all. They broke the day up, with the Vatican in the afternoon. They neglected to tell us where to meet, so we spent a lot of useless time looking for them. They planned the day so poorly, we had to demand to be returned sooner in order to make the ships sail time.
The car that was supposed to come at 8.00am came only around 8.45am. It was 9.00 am by the time we got going. The drive was bumpy as the tires need air. Ride back was good, perhaps they checked the tire pressure. The driver was excellent navigating thro' the Rome traffic.The tour was as advertised. But it is a lot to take in a day. We rushed all day long in order to cover all the places. Guide was excellent, friendly and professional. Rome deserves better. However We covered all the places within the time frame to return to the ship on time. One surprise was that we had to take a cab from the area of the Colosseum to the Vatican. Although it was only about 12 Euro's per cab, it was a surprise. Extra entrance fees are worth it. Well worth the money still, after all how many times will we go to Rome in our life.
