We took a port pick up and essential tour of Rome with Chris and then a half day walking tour of the Vatican with Maria. Both were excellent tour guides and did a great job. Our only complaint would be that the restaurant that the first guide took us to (something named restaurant of the Popes?) took us to wasn’t one of our favorites of what we eat in 5 days in Rome and we wonder if he received a kickback for bringing us. The actual tours were amazing!

My biggest concern when planning this trip was whether or not we would have enough time to see these beautiful historical places and appreciate them in all their glory. Well I can honestly say that thanks to Rome Private Excursions we did just that. Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable (It’s no wonder they call him The Professor). He would make frequent stops from great lookout points to tell us about the rich history of the places we were about to visit and then we were off on foot to explore. We enjoyed spotting the things he spoke to us about like the Roman numerals marking the “assigned” seats at the colosseum, a “season pass system” (if you will) way ahead of it’s time. He even recommended a great spot for lunch where we had some fresh oven baked pizza, pasta and burrata. Looking back, Rome is one of the places where I really feel like we got the most out of our time and we are grateful towards Luca and his team for making this possible.

We were on a cruise ship and arrived in Civitacecchia and the driver was waiting right outside the pier for us with a sign in hand that had our name. The Mercedes van was so clean it was almost new. The driver was so friendly and eager to show us everything on our bucket list and more. We got to see the Colosseum and they got the tickets for us in advance so we were able to walk right in. The Trevi Fountain was breathtaking and the driver was able to drop us off at the corner just steps from it giving us more time at the fountain and less time walking to get to it. Local guide was able to show us a great place to get a sandwich and walk and eat as we were able to shop and see a great plaza with local fruits and veggies and other local foods for sale. We are a family of 5 with a 7 year old so local guide was great for finding restrooms very quickly and a McDonalds for our picky eater which was right next to Piazza Navona a great Plaza to stroll thru with a pick up on the other side. Pretty much got dropped off at the door for our visit to the Pantheon. Vatican City OMG LOVED IT and they had our tickets for us already and we took the optional tour guide got dropped off right at entrance and picked up when we were done. Drove around Rome just taking in the beauty. I can not believe how much we were able to see in only 1 day and the tour guide catered to what WE wanted to do not just what they suggested so that meant GELATO & Canoli stop :) We travel many times a year and this by far was the best service we ever used. There is no better way that to have a PRIVATE tour guide that knows all the local spots and caters to your family needs. So nice not to be stuck in a large herd on a large bus and stuck to their itinerary. Its your trip do what you want to do

We had a wonderful day with Max, our driver/guide. He was prompt to collect our family of 5 and took us to all the sights of Rome including a private Vatican tour. Great knowledge of the history of Rome and Italy combined with a good sense of humor made Max the ideal tour guide. Having spent many years in the U.S., Max was very knowledgeable on U.S. culture and Italian culture. He made it interesting for 3 college age boys, too. Expensive, but worth it.

We booked this tour at the last minute. We docked at the Civitavecchia port, we wanted a tour of Rome, but had to get our luggage to our hotel - then to Rome to tour? Sounded impossible - but Viator has the perfect solution - enter Manny! Manny picked us up in a roomy Mercedes mini van promptly are 8:00 - and we were off. He took us to everything you want to see in a day and more ! A beautiful park with great views of the Tibor river from an 800 year old church, a pyramid (yes! There is a pyramid complete with a sarcophagus in Rome!) we walked the grounds of the Coliseum (we did not brave the entrance lines) had a fantastic lunch in a busy plaza - (wonderful pizza and wine) plazas, fountains, the church is Peter in Chains, Mussolini’s residence and the balcony he gave speeches from - a castle, Spanish Steps, the Forum, Tavoli Fountain, Pantheon, Vatican (walked around only - we did not go in and tour it), we saw MichaelAngelos home, and so much more! Manny was AMAZING! We told him show us Rome in a day and he did it! He knows Rome! He told us so much history behind each stop and I learned so much more than I ever could have on my own!! We highly recommend Manny and Viator. I had hesitation on the cost - but it was worth every euro!!!

My family and I traveled for the first time to Europe on a Disney Cruise from Barcelona. I was nervous to book non-disney excursions but after reading all the excellent reviews for Rome Private Excursions, I decided to take a chance.

From the beginning of my interactions with Luca via email I was not disappointed. He was very professional and all his suggestions were great! When we got to Rome, we were met right outside the Magic ship by Fausto. We did not have to walk like other cruise passengers or take a shuttle bus to the other side of the port like the others.

Fausto was super friendly and was driving a nice air conditioned car (very welcoming on a hot day). The tour was just for our family (3). Fausto took us to all of the top highlights in Rome, which I thought would not be possible as Civitavecchia is an hour from the port. However, he did it! He was super knowledgeable giving us some great history lessons as we passed various structures. He made sure to slow down where possible to get some pictures of other awesome sites. We went to the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the Vatican and he even surprised us and took us to watch a cannon firing which occurs everyday in Rome since the 1800s! The entire time we were with Fausto I felt like the whole town knew him! I felt safe and definitely in pleasant company.

We asked Fausto for some good Italian pizza for lunch and he reserved a table for us at the cutest pizza place with a gorgeous view of St. Peter's Basilica. We had delicious pizza, rice balls, beer and wine for about $50 euros!!

I not only would use this company again, I would recommend them to everyone I know!!!!! Great deal and AMAZING experience.

I also booked the Florence tour with them but I will review that one separately as that was also an amazing experience!!!

Thank you Luca and Fausto for helping me give my family an unforgettable experience!

We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on a Viking cruise. This private tour was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide Maximo (Max) was exceptional, he took us to every place we wanted to go and also was a incredibly knowledgeable about history, architecture and everything in between. By the time the tour was over he was like an old friend.
This is a five star company, service and guide.
We can not recommend him our this company enough, and we are looking forward to coming back and spending more time in Rome with Maximo as our guide!

We did a Florence and Pisa and Rome tour from our cruise ship. Both tours were wonderful. The drivers brought us very close to each sight unlike the big tour busses.
Luca was wonderful to do business with as were his drivers. A great over all experience.

I haven't been a person to write many reviews but I found Rome Private Tours through Trip Advisor reviews and the reviews were so helpful in deciding to book our one day visit to Rome with Rome Private Tours, thank goodness we did - money well spent! Our family of four (my husband and I and kids 17 &19) were on a cruise that stopped in the port of Civitavecchia and wanted to tour Rome. Max our driver from Rome Private Excursions met us at our port in the morning and we were off in a comfortable Mercedes A/C van, what a comfortable ride (also we were brought back to port on time we agreed, absolutely no worries of missing ship). We sat back and relaxed while Max talked to us to see what we would like to see and provided us a good overview of the history of Rome. Max made the most of our time in Rome to see all of the iconic Roman sites, brought us to an area for us to choose a place for a quick authentic Italian lunch, went out of his way to also include time to stop at a Nike store so our kids could look for soccer jerseys and then brought us to Maria, our spectacular Vatican private guide arranged through Rome Private tours who gave us a wonderful tour of the Vatican & Sistine Chapel. Can't say enough about how wonderful and professional Max and Maria were. We had a short amount of time to experience Rome and hiring Rome Private Tours was the best decision (time/money) we could have made. There is no way we would have had the same experience in a group tour which truly would have cost about the same price.
