The weather was unpredictable so the tour bus was a good way to get from A to B and keep dry! The bus company staff were very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for landmarks and points of interest.

This bus runs very infrequently. We waited over 35 minutes for a bus. When we got on we heard nothing but music for the first 5 minutes. The information given is sparse and uninteresting in an almost robotic English accent. The music that is played for the majority of the time is boring and annoying to say the least

We always use city sightseeing ( the red buses) as they seem to have the broadest coverage across europe. Furthwrmore, if you keep the receipt, you get 10 percent off the next tour. They offer skip the line tickets and have a good selection of languages.

Purchased our tickets for the shop near the Vatican. The lady who served us was fantastic, knocked money off bus and tickets. Couldn't complain. Slightly annoying that on the 6th January we weren't told that the road was closed due to the procession and Vatican celebrations. However the staff helped us find the new bus stop and we went on...

I only planned to spend three days in Rome. Since I got in on the afternoon of Day 1 and was to leave at noon on Day 3, I opted for a Roma Pass 48 that gave me the first museum admission free and 48 hours of unlimited city transportation rides on metro, bus or tram. I saw the airport... More

We had a 10 hour layover in Rome and decided to try to see as much as we could in that time. This is what I would suggest. Leave 4 hours for getting out and then rechecking in at airport. That leaves you 6 hours to get around. You need to travel by train and metro so get tickets for... More

I can only sum up how I feel about this tourbus. 1) They'll visit most attractions, just like the other bustours.. 2) Audio is sketchy at some seats - headphones might not work properly either. 3) Not a lot of information, make sure to have your own info/booklets etc. 4) A lot of music vs. not a lot info (see...

Do not waste your money. You will spend more time listening to music ... Or nothing... In a city that has history in every corner. Try another line... Which I did not have the chance to. I wish I had checked these reviews before.

We took city sightseeing tours in Rome as we were there ronly for two days and we wanted to cover the city of Rome at its full extent. It was almost impossible to cover all on our own as we all know Rome is oozing with art and so much to see with their own únique history. We took the... More
