What to expect
This full-day hop-on hop-off bus tour in Rome, including round-trip transfer, starts with a shuttle ride from the Civitavecchia Port. Your shuttle takes you over to Cruise Welcome Centre—Largo della Pace where you’ll find the main bus meeting point. Hop on your bus in Rome, and get ready to explore the city at your own pace. You pick the stops you want to get off at, and with eight different stops, there’s plenty to keep you busy. You can also learn interesting facts about Rome as you ride, and pass by famous monuments. Some places you can visit include the Colosseum and Castel Sant’Angelo. Keep track of your own time during the day as you explore, but make sure you make it back to the Cruise Welcome Centre—Largo della Pace before the last shuttle to the Civitavecchia Port.

Rome
May 2019 • Couples
Unfortunately this was the worst decision we made for an "excursion". They were very unorganized. The guide was in constant confusion. We walked far to start the hop on portion of excursion, which took away a good hour or so of time in Rome. Buses were always full. We tried to walk instead as there was never an estimated time for next bus to arrive. We ended up getting a taxi to ensure out time to get back to meeting point. We were very disappointed. This was our first time to Rome and thought it would be a great experience.

Unfriendly staff and every bus is full. Never again. If you are lucky to catch a bus you have to change it at the train station and bam the next bus is full again.

Transfer = meh. Big Bus = met expectations.
Oct 2017 • Family
Customer service of the transfer was mehhhhhh. I know I'm about to sound real whiny, but I believe the transfer bus was advertised to have wifi when it actually didn't--which made the drive to and from Rome all the more dull because nooo commentaryyy on Rome or just the region in general was provided by the guide(?) who was on the bus. I mean, I get that it's just supposed to be a transfer, but after experiencing the transfer that tuscanyBUS provides (I did Livorno to Florence/Pisa), tuscanyBUS puts the transfer service that Big Bus uses to shame. (tuscanyBUS had a really friendly guide who provided interesting facts about the places we were going to visit as well as the best routes to take in order to visit certain attractions in the amount of time we had).

Big Bus hop-on hop-off was consistent and frequent as usual.
