“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Definitely the best way to discover Rome is alongside a true Roman, and Pietro made a wonderful day for us. Even with the best guide books we would never have had such an interesting insight into the city's history, architecture & treasures. Extremely friendly and catering to our wishes, we enjoyed every minute with Pietro and for our remaining days in Rome, knew exactly where we wanted to go again, where we could eat what we wished & what was still worth exploring given our preferences. Whether you are in Rome for only a short stay or have a week or more to spend there, be sure to book ahead a day tour of Rome, your trip will not be the same if you miss this !

“Excellent & informative service”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We booked DGS for 3 tours in late August and had an excellent experience with all 3 drivers. Luca showed us all around Rome on our 1st day including the Colosseum and the catacombs. It was a great day & he directed us to a great restaurant for lunch. No lines for us! On day 2 Lorenzo took us on the tour of the Vatican for half of the day. He helped give context and order to the overwhelming amount of beautiful things we saw that day. The next day Pietro drove us to Florence. We got to hear about the countryside during a very pleasant trip.
I would to hesitate to use them again, and I think it would be very worthwhile for families. By the end of each day we felt as if each driver was a comfortable old friend.

“Worth the extra money”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We did a full day driving tour with Fabio, and two half-day walking tours with Agnese (half day spent at Vatican, half day spent in ancient Rome). Both guides were knowledgeable, informative, prompt, eager to help, and really loving their job. They both spoke very good English, and were very much highlights of the trip.

In hindsight (and it has nothing to do with the tour, as Agnese did great) I would not have spent the money for the private tour of the Forum. We did love our Colosseum tour, and the tour of the Vatican was maybe our favorite part of the trip.

Ultimately, I would definitely recommend this agency, and cannot stress enough that the Vatican tour and the full day driving tour are "musts" for any traveler visiting Rome

“A day in Rome”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

My family and myself had a day to see Rome and the Vatican when we arrived in Port at Civitavecchia. Our driver, Joseph, was there to great us when we got off the ship and took us on a wonderful trip into Rome. He was very informative and we totally enjoyed the tour. He showed us places of interest that we were not even aware of that made the day special. We got back to port in plenty of time. Rome is on my list of places to return to in the future.

“Drivers Guide Tour of Rome Sept 2012”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This tour was the highlight of our vacation. All services were booked last November so I was a bit nervous getting off the Epic. But not to worry. Our driver Tony was there holding a card with our name and gave us a private ride to our hotel in Rome for the same price the ship charges for the group bus.The next day our guide and driver for the day Pietro picked us up at the agreed time and we saw more in 8 hours than we could have on our own in a week. Pietro explained what we going to see and then gave up plenty of time to enjoy the sight. Lorenzo, our guide at the vatican , was also very good and showed a real enthusiasm for his job. Also used this company for our ride to the airport.Again Tony was very prompt and everything ran smooth. Give Ivano and his employees A+++++++++++++++ Tony and Denise R.
