We booked to go on the hop on hop off bus in Rome. They specifically asked for our dates. Then they cancelled because of the coronavirus issue. This is fine. But then they refused a refund on the basis that the tickets were valid for 6 months. This was of no value to ourselves. We had specifically told them the dates as they requested. Since then I have had fascile emails asking if they had sorted out my problems. The trips may be ok but as a company they are not to be trusted with pre-booking. Terry

Once you pay for your hop on hop off ticket, you can get across town, to and from every major attraction, for free. Not only that, but you get a free history and architectural lesson. All in all, a great deal!

Firstly we booked this particular hop on hop off as it(allegedly) went to the Vatican on Saturday/Sunday and holidays..NOT. Then when we went to get the last scheduled bus from stop 6 castell sant Angelo at 6.15 on their printed brochure....we waited from 6 pm until 6.45 and it NEVER arrived. Really pissed off! Saw two buses from each of the other companies come and go.. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. AVOID . Use another company...

It was very hot in Italy when we were there in August, 2019 and big bus tours was a life saver. Hop on and Hop off at the many stops along the way.

This is a great way to get an overview of the main attractions of Rome. The price is reasonable, buses are clean, audio is informative and the buses are frequent.
