Private tour group is expensive it can hit up to 400-800 euros a trip depending on how long your trip is and how many people you have. To have a feel of rome cost savingly join walking group tour is probably the best option. Having opt for a group walking tour try not to have high expectations. They will meet... More

Our hotel phoned around to get my son and I into a Pompeii day trip tour for us late one evening. The first company the hotel called was fully booked and then the Carrani tour had only 2 spots left so we jumped to take it. Carrani Tour also came right to our hotel to pick us up in the... More

It is tough to know where to begin. We booked a "Panoramic Tour of Rome at Night" through Viator predicated on our excellent experiences with them to this point. The tour provider turned out to be Carrani, and that's where the wheels started to come off the bus. Advertised as an English-speaking tour, it was actually a French/English tour with... More

We booked a guide of Colosseum with Carrani tours through our hotel. We took the 29 euro offer, since we only wanted the guide for the Colosseum. Which I would say is the best choice if you want to skip the line and get some info during the tour. I think the were a number of factors, first of all... More

My wife and I booked the 3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri in June 2014. The positive aspects were the hotel and food was good. The negative aspects were, cramped buses at times, multiple bus and guide changes during tour. 1.5 hour wait in Pompeii car park without seating in the 35 degree heat on the way to... More

We booked the 2 Nights in Capri with Transport from Rome tour in order to makes things easier for us--so we wouldn't have to arrange a train from Rome, cab in Naples, hydrofoil to Capri, transport to Capri hotel, etc. Carranni did just the opposite and tainted our whole experience in Capri. The whole tour was completely disorganized and of... More

We were given good directions to the office a long with our booking code. Took them a while to find the booking - the office seems pretty disorganised. Initially we had been told we would be going by high speed train, turned out to be a bus, but it was comfy and air conditioned so I didn't mind. We then... More

The tour was definitely not my best experience. Probably one of the worst. Honestly didn't learn anything from going to Vatican. The tour guides' accents were all very heavy, and I couldn't even understand a single word. There was a lot of slow walking and the tour wasn't as efficient as my family and I thought. We literally spent 30... More

We used Carrani tours because the advertising promised tour groups limited to not more than 25 people, with English only groups. Our tours (to the Colosseum and Pompeii) had at least 40 people in the group, and the tour was done in both English and Spanish. Be aware that the "Whispers" radios used by the guides only really work if... More
