I had booked Vatican tours on successive mornings. The first Gardens/Museums/Sistine and the second Early Access Sistine. The actual tour of the Vatican gardens etc was really good - a knowledgeable, personable guide and there were no problems there. The Early Access tour was, as expected, not so much a tour as an escorting into the museums very early and... More

The tour was excellent. Our guide (Sigi) was very thorough. Her knowledge of art, history is exceptional. I was a little worried reading other reviews, but the whole walk thorough the garden with very thorough review of history was exceptional. Our group (8 persons) came from four different continents, thus her job was very difficult. She passed this "exam" with... More

We, family 4 of us booked through reputable Australian travel agent but this agent contracted to Carrani tour. So be careful !.. you wouldn't know which local travel agent will take care of you. Before you book... ask name of local travel agent then avoid Carrani. I saw previous bad reviews...Yes, I agree all !!... We had exactly same experiences... More

Our travel agent in Australia booked two tours for my partner and I with this tour company- Vatican museums tour (included the Vatican museum, Sistine chapel and St. Peter's Basilica) in the morning and then the Ancient Rome walking tour (colosseum and Palatine Hill area) in the afternoon. We were told that in between tours we would have enough time... More

We were to be picked up from Rome airport (prepaid to Viator) & taken to our hotel. No one showed up. We went to Carrani tours at the airport who was so rude that another vendor apologized. We emailed Viator and called but got no response. Once our concierge called they responded & said sorry..you waited to long. Do not... More

Rude staff, an old uncomfortable oversold bus, and a visit of a place that we never got to. Paid $200pp for a day trip to Capri, Italy. The brochure promised a tour of the island and the Blue Grotto (National Geographic lists it as one of the 100 must-see places in Europe). The tour of the island was actually a... More

Don't know why Carrani gets negative reviews? Our experience with them was outstanding! We were picked up at our hotel on time, their buses were clean and their guides were all good. For what I gathered Carrani subcontracts to most travel agencies in Rome and conduct their own tours as well. Five members of our family traveled to Italy and... More
