Large queues meant that we had to wait for up to an hour on a bus. The audio guide was terrible, with some annoying music between actual facts (not that there were that many facts). At sometime after, finally, getting a reasonable seat, we had to change bus. There are a lot of tour busses - use some of the... More

We pre booked a tour with this company to get an overall picture of Rome and learn more about the city. First it was difficult to find the stops but after asking a lot of official looking people who mostly turned out to work for opposing bus tours we managed to catch the right bus and through pure luck managed...

I am usually an advocate for the red city bus tours, but it just doesn't work in Rome. The traffic is horrendous and just when you think you are getting somewhere the driver decides to pull over for a break, you would assume this would be at the beginning or end of the route, but no. You can see a... More

We had 72 hour tickets, and judging by other comments we were perhaps lucky. We only had short waits, the nearest stop to our hotel was the Vatican, where more people (usually) got off than got on, and the headphone points we used all worked. Buses seemed to run approximately every 10 minutes, traffic permitting, and seemed to be more... More

My friends and I pre-purchased tickets for this tour bus. The website gave us a list of stops where the buses were supposed to pick up every thirty minutes. The stops were so poorly marked that it took us almost an hour to find and get on the first bus. We then received headphones, which worked poorly. In addition to... More

The worst City Sightseeing bus I have ever used. The staff were very rude when we got off the bus and simply asked in which direction we needed to go . The female employee was too busy on her phone and just pointed and stated "THERE". They promise buses every 10-20 mins we waited an hour in 32 degrees with... More

We paid for a 48 hour ticket but managed to use it for 4 days. We went everywhere and just sat there some times. Be wary of when you get off guys trying to sell you all sorts. Very annoying.

Disgusted! I wish we had done our homework before but we have had success through tout Spain and other parts of Italy! Yes it was very expensive! Never have we experienced the 20 minute waits in the sun and the 5 minutes later, another 20 minute stop for drivers refreshment! We we taken up 'book street' 3 times, went past... More

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
