We booked this activity through expedia- it was advertised as an evening river cruise with wine and authentic italian appetizers. Time frame was advertised for an one and a half hours. NOT TRUE- the cruise lasted for less than 50 minutes. The authentic italian appetizers included barbecued potato chips??? Did not know that was considered an authenitc appetizer. The 5 of us did not eat a thing-since the tidbits did not appear appetizing. The sound system was terrible - could not understand a word. The cruise went from one dock to another and then back to the original point or departure. The sights we got to see 3 times - by the way the sites were limited. Recommend avoiding this cruise as you will be extremely disappointed. We are still in the process of trying to get a refund from Expedia for this tour.

We are very disappointed with this tour. It is not worth it. You are not able to see any sites from boat and all you will see is a dirty wall full of graffity. The boat is very small and nothing like the picture shown. Also to access the dock you must go down at least 50 narrow and steep steps!

This would have to be one of the most boring tours ever. The river is nothing special and the food served was so bad that no one ate it. I have since been on numerous tours which I rate highly.

Myself and the family (she-who-must -be obeyed and two ankle chompers) had booked our Vatican Tour with another prominent guide company. We were initially disappointed to learn that the company who were to guide us in the Vatican had a start time for their own Collosseum and Forum Tour which did not gel so well with our schedule, and as such we were forced to look elsewhere. After some research booked the Forum with Tiber Tours based primarily on reviews on this fine site, and the prompt, polite and humourous manner in which they responded to our enquiries. The Vatican tour with the other company was...fine. No major complaints, but we all found the delivery a bit stilted and pre-rehearsed, which began to drag given the length. When we showed up to begin our Forum Tour with Rossa Viva la Difference (wrong country I know!). This guy was charming from the start, chatting to us all while he very fairly waited a few minutes for some British stragglers to arrive (typical!). Rossa made a special effort to engage with the kids at the start of the tour and when they asked him if the Tour was going to be boring he responded with a wry smile and told them "We'll see, if it is I'll buy you gelato"! Rossa took us around the Collosseum and the Roman Forum, and I have to say, the little steps he took were really appreciated. Things like making sure to find us shade at every stop, and having us stop to fill our water bottles (essential). This would be all well and good in itself but pointless without content and boy did this guy have it in spades. He's a trained archaeologist and you can feel his enthusiasm in every word, and every arm thrust (and I gotta tell you he's fond of thrusting those elbows!) In the Forum, he absolutely brought what was to all appearances a lump of rocks alive. I would have been bored and lost without his guidance but he made it feel like we were standing in a scene from Gladiator at the end, sans skirts! One of the best things about Rossa was that no question was too dumb for him, and he fielded some pretty dumb ones (sorry sweetheart!!). When my kids, 9 and 14, fielded questions he didn't dumb his answers down, but explained things in a very relatable way, in a context the guys could understand, even calling my older son 'sir' and making fun of his oversized Red Sox cap in the bargain! The Collosseum was a particular highlight for us of course, and again Rossa delivered, sparing no details about the horrific gory things that went on here, without some of the embellishments I've heard some guides in Rome can be guilty of. For every fact he asserted he could point to archaeological research or other authorities, not just the Wikipedia version, but most importantly the guy kept us informed and entertained over a hot afternoon. The time flew. After the tour, Rossa stuck round to give us general tips about Rome, taxis, places to heat and general dos and donts. I wish I'd met him before coming over, as we only had two days left at that stage. As my younger said after we left 'Why couldn't we have had him for all our tours pop?'. The boys never got their gelato, but got plenty of food for thought. Highest recommendation. Gary and family.
