I don't think I have ever experienced such rudeness before. It is as if these employees are doing a favor by letting the client go on a tour, even though it was paid for. Beware... They might scream at you, they might refuse to take a complaint or to identify themselves. Their buses are always filled with tourists, so you... More

More expensive than the other providers. The commentary was very poor, instead of music between commentary silence would have been preferable. We chose to buy tickets for the fast track entry to the Vatican, the museum gave us a voucher for the bus ride back and we then had the embarrassment of being questioned when we got back on the...

Just got back from a weekend in Rome, booked hop on hop off to make sure we maximised the 48 hours we had there. Wish I hadn't wasted my time or money!! It's 35 degrees and the bus stops are not under cover, you spend most of the time just sitting on a bus not going anywhere getting heat stroke,... More

Ok it is a tourist bus, and there is a commentary so you do learn bits and pieces, but the music in between the commentary gets really annoying. We were there in July, it is stinking hot, yet most of the buses do not even have a partial canopy on the top deck therefore you get roasted as you spend... More

Brought two tickets from a kiosk (paid cash as kiosk would not accept card payment). Boarded bus and the attendant ripped the stub and gave us one end and kept the other. We got off the bus at the Vatican and 3 hours later we tried to board again. However, we were unable to board as we had not been... More

We visited Rome over the Easter bank holiday. On arrival to the airport we followed the signs to airport shuttle bus. Note this is quite a long walk but signs are clear to follow. Once you reach there you will see many stands but we went with the one that was going to leave next, (romeairportbus.com). They all charge the... More

This was the WORST tour we have ever experienced! The conditions are so poor and dated. Customers are made to wait hours in lines in the hot sun and even worse when finally board the busses they are hot, no aircon and packed full. Our tour had 2 young staff, who were both very rude and uninformative. As the bus... More

It's totally not worth it to get onto this bus tour because it is impossible to get to sights using this services during the day. The brochure also provides misleading and deceptive information by saying that the frequency is 10min but in reality it's every 30min. It's also impossible to get on if you start mid way so we had...

Pick a different company! There are several. The yellow buses seemed to be a lot better. We feared getting off the bus, because we saw the long lines of angry people who had probably been waiting for a long time to get on a bus. Also forget actually learning anything about the city if you have to stand. And if... More
