“Dont Bother Buying A Ticket, Use Any other Company”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We only used this company because its included in the Vatican/Roma Pass.They dont offer very good customer service, leaving seats wet, even when the elderly got on , the driver didnt offer any of the paper towels he was hiding beside him to dry the seats.They dont run to any time schedule and like others have said, you see alot of other companys whilst waiting for this one.Only advantage using this was, compared to the shocking publc transport where they fit as many as can get onto a bus, it wasnt packed.

“Hop on Hop off Bus in Rome”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I used this service which was great to see some sights of rome from the viewpoint of the top deck of the bus but the commentry was often out of sync with the sights you were seeing. One tip I do recommend is to take your own headphones as they fit into the socket and are a LOT more comfortable than the ones they provide!!

“Don't bother!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

In other cities we have visited, the H.O.H.O. bus tours are a nice way to get around without a car, and hear some of the local tourist stories. NOT IN ROME! What a wastes of time and money. The only reason we stayed on was because it was raining! A cabbie could've told us more if we would have chosen that route!

“very good only if you pay the 3day pass”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This company is like any other hop on-hop off tours but the great advantage comes with the roma vatican 3 day pass for 25 Euro, so you can use cristiana buses and all the public transport together. So you can save better. Cards can be purchased also onboard and stops.
Audio guidance had some problems as usual and lacked Turkish language.

“Waste of Money”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Since we've never been to Rome, we figured we'll do the hop on and hop off tours. It was a BIG MISTAKE! Just like what the other reviewer said, it took a LONG time for the shuttle to arrive. We saw different companies' shuttles come in every 5-10 minutes yet this shuttle took a LONG time to arrive. OH, not to mention that majority of their drop off locations are FAR from the main tourist attractions. The only good drop off they have is the Colosseum (The Roman Forum and The Colosseum is right next to each other). If you want to go to the Trevi Fountain or the Pantheon from the Colosseum, the shuttle operator will tell you that it is walking distance from where you are but what they don't tell you is that it is a confusing LONG WALK. Just take a cab to where you need to go and then walk from one the next because that is what you will end up doing with this shuttle company anyway - a lot of walking. Don't waste your money. We ended up paying a cab to take us back to our hotel near St. Peter's Basilica since the shuttle's stop was confusing and the shuttle took a long time to arrive. Shuttle from St. Peter's to the Colosseum only cost us 7 Euros vs. the 45 Euros we spent for two people and the only thing we used it for is to get dropped off at the Colosseum and WALK the whole day.
