          On Time, Comfortable Transfer with Gilberto
          We had a wonderful experience riding with Gilberto for a private transfer between Rome and the Port of Civitavecchia. Gilberto arrived on-time and was very friendly, helpful and fun to drive with. We had arrived right before the Spring time change in Europe. We received a nice message reminding us of the time change as well. Would highly recommend this company! Thank you for the great service!

          Best tour Company in Italy!!!
          My family of 3 recently used Discovery Guide Tours for on a multi-port excursion on a visit to Italy (Naples, Rome, Sicily and Livorno) This company provided excellent service before, during and after each experience. Giulia help us from day one to arrange every port with excellent support. Every time we had a question the answer was on my mailbox with in 24 hours. Our experience on each port was amazing, excellent vehicles, excellent tour drivers just VIP service every step of the way. Booking a private excursion just makes thinks so much easier, no crowds to deal with and you get to spend more time on each site that you visit. This time my family was able to spend 2 hours in the coliseum compare to 15 minutes on a previous experience with a group tour. Thanks to everyone one that help us on making this trip a success. We will be back soon to arrange our future trip to Italy. To everyone reading this post, book private, book with the best, book with Discovery Guide Tours. Thank you.

          Calcat is the best
          This was a wonderful tour. We started by going to Calcata which turned out to be one of the most interesting and unique places that we have ever visited. Gilberto is one of the very few people that knows about Calcata and we were incredibly fortunate to go there close to Halloween since it is haunted and has witches. Gilberto genuinely wanted us to have the best possible experience and he made this excursion wonderful. Giulia in the office was a pleasure to work with and always answered our questions quickly and with excellent suggestions. This was a very enjoyable and relaxing day for us.

          A great day in Rome.
          I cannot say enough good things about Discovery Tours and the people there. Gilberto, the driver, was amazing the way that he could get you right up to where you were going through thick traffic. He genuinely wanted us to have the best possible experience. Kira, our guide at the Colosseum and Vatican was fantastic! So knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She had a tremendous ability to show us all the highlights while keeping us out of the crowds. Giulia, in the office, was a pleasure to deal with and always replied to our questions quickly and with excellent suggestions. If you only have a short time in Rome you should book Discovery Tours and have the experience of a lifetime. We saw more in a day than many people see in a week. In a single day we toured the Colosseum, including going to the lower level, saw the Trevi Fountain, walked the Spanish Steps, and had an incredible tour of the Vatican.

          Do not pass this tour up or consider using another company!
          What a tremendous experience! From dealing with the professional staff on booking, changes, billing, confirmations and reconfirmations I can not find one thing to complain about. Then, our tour guide/driver Maurizio was fantastic! From his professional pick up to his driving throughout Rome to his recommendations on what to see, for how long to what to eat for lunch was right on the money! BRAVO to the whole team!

          Excellent Tour
          We only had 1 extra day in Rome before flying home. This is the best way to get a flavor for the sights, people and food of Rome. I had been to Rome before but he brought us to places I didn’t visit when I was there for five days. And did it know to visit! Our drivers knowledge was amazing and his driving skills supreme! Air conditioned Mercedes van…. So necessary in the hot Roman sun. We can’t wait to go back and would definitely use this tour company again!

          Fabulous day away from the crowds of Rome.
          We had a wonderful quiet day away from the crowds with Gilbert who took us to Calcata and a few more charming towns round Lake Bracciano. It was one of our best days in Italy being away from the crowds and tourist areas. He speaks great English and was very flexible and patient. He’s an excellent guide that lived in CA before and was very knowledgeable about the attractions, history and places to see.

          Superb Italian trip!
          We had an amazing trip to Italy during the Easter break. We contacted Giulia from the start and she was amazing and responsive in providing us with recommendations and making the necessary arrangements for us. We spent about a week in Italy - this includes Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa. The drivers and the guides were excellent - we felt very welcomed and Giulia's team made the trip so easy and seamless. Would highly recommend Discovery Tours for anyone looking to visit Italy. Massive thanks to Giulia and her team! Jasmine & Family

          The best travel experience in all of Europe, ever!
          It is difficult to put into words how wonderful this experience was for myself and my parents. Marco was our driver and tour guide, and he was absolutely amazing. Spoke perfect English, was extremely professional, an excellent and safe driver, and created a very relaxed environment. The tour was specifically adjusted for our goals, desires, and abilities. Marco was extremely knowledgable with the history of the specific areas and anecdotal stories. He pulled over at specific locations to tell longer stories and allow us to take in the locations - this was done in a safe manner, but one in which a large tour bus would be unable to do. The vehicle itself was clean, safe, and in excellent shape! We were able to do the main highlights of Rome in one day! We were able to enjoy an authentic Italian meal with a beautiful view of a Square that Marco recommended - EXCELLENT MEAL! Truly a perfect trip and tour that exceeded any of our expectations! Thank you so much Marco!

          Amazing day trip
          This was a great experience and it was all thanks to Discovery Guided Tours. Our tour guide Gilberto was amazing. He was informative, professional and tailored the tour especially for us. We had a great day and visited the Saturnia Springs which is a natural wonder of Italy. Then, our guide organised a lovely authentic restaurant in a nearby town which has been one of the best meals we’ve had in Italy. He also arranged trips to the ‘autogrill’ for breakfast and toilet stops. He listened to what we wanted out of the trip and then tailored it it with his expertise. One of our guests had food allergies and our guide helped find a place which also catered for them. We had the guide and car at our disposal for the whole day. The car was comfortable and air-conditioned with bottled water given out to us. Giulia in the office as well was so friendly and helpful during the process of booking. What an awesome experience. Thank you Gilberto.

          Relaxing and Insightful Tour of Ostia Antica (outside of Rome)
          Excellent day from start to finish. Picked up at port while on a Princess cruise for a comfortable ride to Ostia, followed by an excellent guided tour. After, a quaint Italian restaurant was recommended for lunch, and the food was delicious! A great, relaxing trip when in Civavecchia and have already explored Rome. I would highly recommend Discovery Guided Tours when visiting Rome.

          Fabulous guides, comfortable cars and 2 fantastic days a few years apart.
          We have used Discovery Tours twice. An all day tour that included the countryside surrounding Rome followed by the main attractions in Rome. It was fantastic, a lovely lunch along a lake after touring a few small Italian towns and then we were taken directly to each venue. A great day with a great guide. Most recently we spent some time in Venice and wanted to see the Dolomites. Our travel agent contacted Discovery Tours and they arranged for another all day excursion for us. A beautiful day with another great guide. I would (and will if we have an opportunity) use Discovery Tours over and over again. Thank you!!! Both times it was just the 2 of us and I would highly recommend, well worth the $

          Rome and beyond
          Gilberto was awesome- he speaks perfect English and made great suggestions for our trip around Rome before going to our cruise ship. He also helped find us a driver when we ended our cruise in Trieste and needed to get to Venice. Bravo to this company!

          Rome on your own.
          Rome on your own is easy. Stayed around the old town area and walked the entire area. We have been to Rome 3 prior times with a cruise and did the basic tours. We decided to do 5 days and our own schedule. Easy Walking to entire sites. Many we missed before. The only suggestion is if there is anything in the area, you must visit book tickets directly ahead as many days sell out. Coliseum, Forum, Vatican and Garden Museum, etc. We were happy just seeing the sites. Many which you can enjoy free. Pack water and be sure to try the local foods. Easy train ride from Port, which drops you off only a few blocks away. Traffic is busy, so walking around will get you most places faster. So much to see.

        Having been to Rome several times we were looking for an alternative while on a cruise. Searching the web, we ran across Discovery Tours and their tour to Tivoli. What a great choice! Discovery Tours provide a delightful transport with great advice from our driver. Hadrian’s Villa and Villa d’Este were far above what any review had prepared us for. The scope and amount of ruins at Hadrian’s was amazing...could have easily spent a full day here. Then, the Town of Tivoli was an experience free of the maddening crowds of tourists. Great lunch al fresco and then off to Villa d’Este. What an amazing place. Arriving, it appears to be a tenement building which elicited the thought “is this worth spending our time on?” Then stepping inside, the house is impressive , although, again, nothing to get too excited about. That is until you step out onto the terrace and see the absolutely stunning gardens and fountains. What a magical place. In summary, if you are looking for an alternative to another trip into Rome or looking for a day trip from Rome, go to Tivoli...and Discovery Tours is an excellent resource for getting there.
