“Excellent option if your in Rome for a day!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

If you are in Rome for only a day, Discovery Tours is the perfect option. You will see the major sites and given some time to walk around and explore. Our guide, Marco, met us at our ship in Civitavecchia, Italy at the designated time. We were a party of four, so the car was large, clean and had working air-conditioning and seat belts. Marco speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable about the various tourist sites and is an excellent driver. We also chose the option of a private Vatican tour and it was definitely worth the extra cost. Our guide, Rosella, was fantastic! One person in our party has a bad hip and she made every accommodation possible by taking short cuts, navigating us around large tour groups and using her charming personality on the guards. Her sense of humor had us laughing aloud many times. One tip, if Marco is your guide ask him to take you to the Gelato spot outside of the Vatican. We had Gelato every day in various cities in Italy and this one was the absolute best of all of them! I’m just sorry I didn’t note the name. Our entire party enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.

“Florence and Naples”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were on a cruise of the Mediterranean and booked Discovery tours for a tour of Florence and also of Naples. Both tours were fantastic and Discovery's drivers and guides were fabulous. They greeted us as we got off the ship and they allowed us to pick and choose what we wanted to see at both destinations and also gave us some very good advice about things we shouldn't miss. Simone, our driver/guide in Florence knew the city inside/out and took us to a hilltop venue where we could overlook the entire city of Florence. The view was spectacular. I would not hesitate to book Discovery Tours again. Their rates for small groups were very good and about the same price as the tours that could be booked through the ship but with much more personalized service. Can't sing their praises enough.

“VIP style tour”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We have used Discovery twice now. Both times we were chauffeured around in a lovely Mercedes minibus. The driver met us as arranged and was extraordinary polite and friendly (and typically Italian good looking according to the ladies in our group). We had very knowledgeable guides too who ensured we were taken to the front of queues and had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative trip. Each time we were also taken to a local restaurant where we ate well and in the most recent trip had an impromptu wine tasting too. We were listened to, and we're able to do what we wanted. All of this for the six of us was only slightly more than the cost of the cruise excursions but much much betted value because the quality was so good. We will be using them again next time we are in Italy. Buff said!

“Gilberto is the BEST!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

SO, we started off on the "wrong" foot-- but all was forgotten/forgiven upon Gilberto arriving at (finally) the airport. Side note: My grandma/sister/I had a 7:15am flight arrival into FCO but we got in well-ahead of schedule + apparently there were two flight 40's coming in from the NYC area within an hour of each other-- so there was a MAJOR mix up. But Gilberto made right on his mistake-- and we simply could not have asked for better service.

Easy to contact/communicate with prior to our trip to Rome; between my grandma and myself-- Gilberto answered many emails and Skype messages/conversations.

We used Gilberto for:
airport transfer to Rome hotel
Rome hotel transfer down to the center city area
then
Rome hotel transfer to the Rome cruise port the next day

HE WAS SUPERB! He gave us great advice for places to eat, and how best to catch a cab around town (and how much each fare should cost), etc.

HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!
May I add: Gilberto is an HONEST man as we kindly declined an "over"-pay that my grandma offered upon final drop off. Unsure of what was an appropriate tip for all his help/travels-- he was kind enough to say what was fair.

“Over the top professional and accommodating”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Discovery Tours was the perfect choice for our family of 8, including our elderly parents. Gilberto was prompt and specific in outlining details, including cost, where to meet, who to contact if flight schedules change, etc. Livio went way beyond average service in helping our family members who arrived late (he waited), didn't receive luggage (he translated) and general flexibility in transporting our group. Gilberto suggested an alternate day trip than what we had requested, as he listened to our desires for the day. His suggestion was exactly what we had hoped for . . . a perfect day in the beautiful Italian countryside. Allesandro (sp?) provided a fun and memorable experience for our final day in Rome, taking us to some lesser known sites, and a beautiful view of the city to end the day. We could not have been more pleased with the service. But, more than that, we felt like each driver was a friend. Don't look anywhere else for tour service in Italy!
