I am not normally one to post travel reviews, but the private tour we booked with Rome Private Excursions was an incredible day for our family that our kids will always remember. In July 2019, we were on the Norwegian Epic and booked the "Rome and Vatican tour" from the port of Civatavechia, Italy. We were met right at the dock by our driver Antonio in a very comfortable Mercedes van for our family of 7. Antonio was very courteous and provided a tremendous amount of information on the drive to Rome. We were truly impressed with his ability to navigate through traffic and side streets to drop us off at convenient spots for excellent photo opportunities. We went to the Colliseum, Circus Maximus, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and other landmarks in the morning. At each location, Antonio provided detailed information that really added a great deal to the experience. He took us to a local restaurant for a quick lunch, and then drove us to the Vatican for the afternoon tour. We paid the additional fee (from Rome Private Excursions) for a second tour guide for the Vatican who was equally helpful and very knowledgeable. The afternoon tour of the Vatican was truly incredible. Antonio had everything timed very well during the entire day, and returned us to the ship before the required departure time from port.
The day spent with Rome Private Excursions was truly worth the expense. Given the relative short duration time for this port call, there is no way we could have hoped to see as much in one day attempting to tour the area ourselves. We have 5 teenage kids. Everyone of them said this was the best day of the entire cruise for them. That says it all! Nice job to Rome Private Excursions and a special Thank You to Antonio for a great day!!!

Luca provided a life-changing experience for my wife and I while we visited Italy for a week for a wedding in Toscana - August 2021. We flew into Rome and then took the train up to Florence for the wedding. At the end of the week, we took the train back down to Rome.
While in Rome, Luca gave us a private tour in one of his comfortable minivans. Luca also ensured that we made our flights and train rides via private transfers.

We covered a lot of ground during our private tour, including the Colosseum, Catacombs, and the Vatican with Luca and his colleagues, but realize we only scratched the surface. Luca made us feel safe during our tour and answered all of our questions concerning religious and historical facts about various places. We felt Luca’s passion about his country, which made our tour that much more enjoyable.

Luca is personable, professional, patient, considerate, and responsive. We were able to communicate with him with questions throughout our stay in Italy beyond our private tour. My wife and I made a friend for life and I look forward to keeping in touch with him about my future trips to Italy. We will be going back!

I highly recommend his company for any of your travel needs. You will receive first-class service and you and your family will receive the individualized attention that you want and deserve during your travels in Italy.

Ciao!

Our guide, Giovanni, was great! We learned so much and got to see everything on our "must see" list. We had our two teenage kids with u and they enjoyed the tour as much as we did. The car itself was VERY clean and comfortable and made getting around to the sites so easy. Giovanni did a great job of being flexible when we wanted to shorten times at certain places and take longer at others. And he was so knowledgeable, answering all of our questions and telling us all of the details of the sites we were visiting. I would highly recommend this company!

Luca, thank you for a wonderful two days in Rome. Antonio was a perfect match for us. He was professional, enjoyable, engaging, knowledgeable and kept the pace appropriate for us older ladies.
Because of Antonio we have walked away with a lifetime time of memories of this beautiful, historical city. Thank you for making our adventures in Rome the highlight of our journey!

Cristiano was a spectacular guide for us today. The sites, views, and knowledge we gained today were unbelievable. My wife and I felt privileged the entire time. We would recommend this trip to anyone, and everyone that wants a Roman experience. Cristiano as a guide was 10/10 - he was friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to have as a guide. We appreciated all of his suggestions and experience.

I read about Rome Private excursions on line and emailed them. Luca responded almost immediately, and over many emails, determined what we wanted to do and see. We were pick up at our hotel in Rome and taken to all the wonderful spots. Manny, our driver, even stopped at a Harley Davidson shop so my SIL could get a shirt. They also took us to Pompeii and provided a wonderful guide. Next to Naples to see the Veiled Christ (unbelievable) and to a great cafe on the water with a view of the fort. It was a memorable tour and I have recommended them many, many ties

George was Amazing… so knowledgeable of Italy and it’s wonderful history. He was accompanying in every way and super polite. He dropped us at the front of the sites with passes for very little Wolsey in lines and picked us up at the back doors. Air conditioned ride with great conversation and recommendations for the area. Would HIGHLY recommend George and the tour company. Bravo 🇮🇹

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Luca and his staff. They were kind and extremely knowledgeable. I don't think there was one question (and we asked a lot) that they could not answer. These two full day tours 100% made our trip to Rome. It would not have been the same without it. I highly recommend this company!!

We hands down rate our customized tour with 5 stars!!!
We were able to see all the sites in one day. This was important to us because we were only in Rome for one day. This tour company gave us the opportunity to see everything on our list and a couple extras!!! We have already recommended you to several friends who want to travel there in the next couple years.We did a 7 hour tour with a break for lunch and it was the perfect amount of time to see it all. The driver even took us to the airport at the end of our tour so we could catch our flight to our next destination!
The service was unbelievable! The driver was extremely knowledgeable and so nice.
He talked with us the whole time, answering our questions about sites that we drove by, and the sites that we visited. There is no other way to see Rome, then with this company! It was the best decision we made!
My husband and I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding memories we took with us that day in Rome :)
Thank you so much Rome Private Excursions!!!!

We were short on time in Rome, but Antonio got us to all the places we wanted. We saved a lot of wasted time and we really good our moneys worth from the short time spent with him.

If you are short on time, this company is recommended.
