We took a tour of St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the Vatican Museum. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. The staff was very efficient in dividing us into groups by language and getting us on our way. Our guide, Roberta, was knowledgable, enthusiastic, and fun! The downside of a very good experience is that in spite... More

I went on the Colosseum & Ancient walking tour. During the tour our trip into the Colosseum visit was approximately 15 minutes long and i did not get to see much of it as we walked in looked at it and walked straight back out. Our tour guide had lost the groups tickets to get into the Ancient walk and... More

I have travel all over the world and staying in 5 Star Hotels and 1 Star Hotels, also use Tours all over but this company does not care about the service... More

STAY AWAY from this agency! They literally rip you off and seem proud of it. My main purpose to visit Rome during Christmas was to attend the Christmas eve mass in St. Peter's Basilica. When I saw their brochure and read about the “Christmas Eve Buffet Dinner and Midnight Mass at St Peters Basilica”, my hotel reception called them and... More

Firstl, this is my first time in Rome and this tour was a total ripoff. $175.00 euros was was absolutely too much for this tour. The panoramic tour was an absolute joke, very rushed since they were late. DInner was a disaster. I was not sure what we were eating. There was no meat in any of the courses, from... More

Wow. The tour started in the early morning. We were picked up promptly from our hotel, which was comforting because it was our first day in Rome and we did not know our way around yet. Prior to the start of the tour we were sorted out into smaller groups. We were given headphones with little radios so we could... More

Our hotel made arrangements for us and the Carrani people did everything they said they would do, including picking us up and delivering us back to our hotel. We would use them again for a day trip!

We did a tour to Pompeii with Carrani Tours on 29th November 2014 which we booked with the hotel staff on their recommendation. I wanted to write this review (first in my life that I ever bothered with) to warn you in case that you are interested in booking it because I and my husband thought they were just pathetic....

We booked 2 tours from this company before we arrived in Rome. We did the Amalfi coast tour which took in Pompeii, Isle of Capri and Amalfi. Was really good and the accommodation was excellent. Good driver and the guides were very informative and helpful. Next tour was Rome to Venice stopping along the way at various towns with 2... More

There are many bus companies touring Rome. I am sure some are better than others. They all like to profit from the lucrative tourist dollars. We choose this company because they have a good deal after 3PM where you can take the whole route for a much smaller fee. We did this the day of our arrival because we were... More
