Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Civitavecchia Shore Excursion: Rome in One Day Private Tour submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
This was everything I wanted and more...There were only 6 of us in our group. We were met at the port by Lydia and our driver (sorry I can not remember his very Italian name) - they were both fantastic. Lydia was so nice and outgoing. I'm usually a very nervous passenger, but our driver (whom we had all day in Rome) was so great, we tipped him extra! Our guide, Nicola, was so knowledgeable and passionate about the art and sites that we became even more excited and enthralled with being there. Everyone in our party felt the same way and this was the highlight of the entire visit to Europe. I would highly recommend this company, and certainly this guide, to anyone interested in visiting Rome.Reviewed by: Kevin Q, October 2013
We loved Sylvia! She was so knowledgeable and made our day very memorable!
We could not have accomplished all that we did in Rome in one day without her.
tour guide was very good.Reviewed by: Cheryl B, August 2013
This tour was the highlight of our cruise! The entire day was well organized and well run. Our tour guide, Nicola, was superb!!! He made the tour even better. He was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about everything he described. Being able to bypass the long lines at Vatican City was worth every penny of the tour! The lunch at Cybo was delicious. The quaint restaurant was a perfect fit for the tour. Nicola's knowledge of the Coliseum was extensive. We learned so much. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to make the most of their day in Rome.Reviewed by: Kenneth A, August 2013
It was a great experience. Definitely the way to go if you have never been to Rome before and you are short on time. We were with both our children, 10 and 6, and it was truly helpful to be on our own.Reviewed by: Jesus L, August 2013
This tour was absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! We saw ten times the amount of things that people did who booked excursions through the cruise line. It is SO worth the extra money!! Our tour guide Laura was WONDERFUL....showing us all of Rome in a very relaxed way. We have two young children (5 and 8) and they never lost interest or felt exhausted. Book this excursion....you won't regret it!!!Reviewed by: JAMESON A, July 2013
We had an excellent tour with a very professional guide, who showed excellent knowledge and with passion, which has to be commended because of the frequency of the tours and the crowded venues. Would definitely use Viator again, very well organised for cruise ship tours.
The 3 Kiwis
Best Tour EVER! Our family of six (ages 11-45) was taken into Rome where we met our wonderful guide Lauren. She was a wealth of knowledge and knew the answers to all of our questions. We saw just about all of the major tour attractions in Rome without ever waiting in line or feeling rushed. Per our request, Lauren took us to the best pizzeria in town and made sure our service was excellent. We were able to see so much more than a large group would be able to. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better tour guide!Reviewed by: reneefelt, July 2013
WOW! what a great adventure Rome in One Day was. It is just as it is advertised. I believe we saw most of Rome in a day. Our tour guide kept us moving forward and on track. Thank you Nicolai. Our family loved it. 2 Adults and 2 Kids (7 and 11)Reviewed by: Warren P, July 2013
I cannot say enough positive things about this tour! Worth every penny! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we saw the most important things in Rome in one day. Highly recommend!Reviewed by: Ashley B, July 2013
