Marco picked us up from our cruise ship and took us to many of the great sites in Rome. We only had one day there, but he helped us fit in so much. We would have never been able to do it on our own.  As an added bonus, he was a wealth of knowledge on the history of Rome. Our young daughters loved the history lesson about the history and culture of Rome.. We ended our tour with lunch at one of his favorite Trattorias, where we had a fantastic meal, and they treated us so warmly. Can't wait to go back, and we'll definitely call upon Marco and Jimmy Tour again!

We booked a transfer from the cruise port in Civitavecchia along with a one day tour of Rome. Marco Vicaro was fantastic! He greeted us right outside the cruise terminal and took us to the hotel at the airport to drop off our luggage before heading in to Rome to sightsee. It was a very rainy day, but he made sure we could see as much as possible in our short time in the city. He had umbrellas we could use to try to keep dry and he was able to accomodate my bad knees which made long walks difficult. He was very informative about the sights that he took us to and a lot of fun to talk to as we rode around the city. In the morning, he took us to a small gelato shop away from the normal tourist areas for zabaglione gelato in espresso. Outstanding! Then he took us to a family restaurant in the same area for lunch. The restaurant was called Antico Forno. The lady who did all the cooking was also the one who served it to us. She didn't speak English but we got by with a little help from Marco. And the food was the best we had in all of Italy! And if you get there, do yourself a favor and order the panna cotta. Absolutely the best I've ever had!

Marco is such a friendly individual that he made us feel very comfortable during our transfer from Civitavecchia to our hotel in Rome. He gave us a running commentary about interesting landmarks as we approached Rome. But what was amazing was that he actually stopped at a famous gelateria in Testaccio, where a friend was working, to allow us to get a taste of their delicious gelato...before he dropped us off at our hotel. Not many transfer drivers would be so kind. Thank you very much, Marco. We hope to see you and your beautiful city again.

Marco Vicaro played a major role in making our visit to Rome such a memorable experience. He and a staff member greeted our group has we disembarked from our cruise. On the way to the hotel, he wanted the group to experience some authentic Italian cuisine so he took us to his favorite gelateria. He told us that authentic gelato is all about the ingredients - fresh and local. The gelato topped with zabaglione was memorable to say the least. Marco also arranged for a special tour of the Vatican with someone who actually lives in the Vatican. Her insight into the Vatican coupled with the anecdotes she shared with us were priceless and gave us a unique perspective of the Vatican. Finally at the end of our stay, he drove the group to the airport and was genuinely interested in how our visit went and hoped that we enjoyed the city he clearly loves. Marco, you made our visit to Rome memorable.

Marco Vicaro was an outstanding driver - always on time and got us to our destination the quickest way possible. From our trip from Princess cruise dock, we used two vans and his other driver - Fredricao to get to Roma. They were great drivers, friendly, personable and very dependable. While in Roma we used Marco to get us to our tours - the most dependable, nicest individual. I would recommend his service to everyone.
