I've been working on cruise ships for over 3 years and this is my second summer I spent in the Mediterranean, and this trip to Rome on August 19th 2012, with Rudy's Car Tours, was one of the best memories I have. My mother and Grandmother came to cruise with me and I wanted to do something special for them. A friend of mine had his parents cruising too, so we decided to do the tour together. Our tour guide was outside, near his new Mercedes van, waiting for us when we got off the ship. He was very personable and his English was easily understood. Now, I have been to Rome countless times as a perk of the Job, but this trip was much different. Not only did we see all of the Major Attractions Rome has to offer, our guide took us to places that you don't normally go on larger tours, places where tour buses don't fit. He was a fountain of knowledge, but didn't pile us down with too much talk. Another great thing was how close we were able to get to the attractions. My mother has difficulties walking, so this was perfect. We were literally dropped off right next to the Pantheon, Colosseum, and Trevi Fountain. He gave us the option of finding tickets to get inside the Colosseum, but we decided not to. Rudy wasn't our guide, but we saw him when we were in Rome and I talked to him on the phone while we were returning to the ship, and he was very involved and wanted to make sure our tour was great.
Just like every other person here, I have nothing but good things to say about Rudy's Car Tours. I have been on excursions offered by the ship before, but nothing compares to this tour. The value of the tour far passes it's cost, which makes it even better.
THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO SEE ROME IN A DAY!
