Apart from the obvious route which covers some key sights ....albeit parking some distance from them.... this bus tour is fairly low standard. Often the audio didn't work at all....when it did there was interference noise. The driving is APPALLING. On one of several bad braking instances my husband was thrown forward and gashed his face. He wouldn't complain because... More

We should've realized from the beginning that this bus service would be a terrible experience. First off, the ticket salesmen are the rudest, pushiest, snobbiest people you may ever encounter. You would think that the high level of competition among bus companies would require friendly salespeople, but this is not the case. The staff was literally yelling at us, rushing... More

We were excited to get the big picture of Rome from a hop-on hop-off bus. We unwisely bought a 48-hour family pass on Trambus Open 110 and immediately regretted it. Our complaints: 1. About half of the audio jacks don't work. 2. Audio quality (when you can find one working) is poor and out of sync with the sights. 3.... More

We took the archeobus to see the catacombs, the sight itself is worth the visit but the buscompany is terrible - we had to wait nearly one and a half hours to get the bus back into town - the audio commentary hardly ever worked, the tour guide on the bus gave cheeky answers and screamed at us after asking...

The Archeobus does take you to some amazing sites on the Appian Way. It is advertised as a hop-on hop-off service with a bus every 30 minutes (except for a one hour break over lunch from 12:30 - 13:30). Don't believe it! We planned to catch the 11:30 bus from the start point at Termini Station, allowing us a visit... More

Hopeless. We got a 24 hour ticket at a fairly reasonable price. The bus was clapped out, dirty and the windscreen was so filthy you couldn't see through it. It took a while to find a working head phone port, the commentary was ordinary and not in synch with the sites. You can't see many of the major sites and... More

The only reason we used this bus was because we wanted to go to the Appian Way which would have cost alot by taxi. We paid €20 each at Terminini so that we could hop on/hop off and had not prebooked. Sitting outside was good fun with excellent views but, although the conductor was pleasant and when we got on... More

Ok so after reading all the negative feedback on this bus company I just had to provide my recent experience having used the 48 hour pass last week. I paid 22.50 euros (including a 25% discount) per person having booked on their website prior to leaving. First day we decided to do a full circuit to see what was available... More

I bought tickets for this bus in a ticket office by accident, I actually wanted the Cityseeing red bus, as we had used that company in dublin and they were great. However we gave this 'official' tour ago after the rudest woman ever said she couldn't be bothered to talk to us after I had bought the wrong tickets. The... More

I'm surprised at all of the one star reviews for the 110 Open Bus. I didn't think it was that bad. I paid 15 euros for a 48 hour ticket. The bus goes through the Centro Storico, as well as to the Vatican. It doesn't hit every monument but does drive past all of them at least. On the one... More
