DGS handling the transfers to/from airport was right on time as were the tours of historical Rome and Vatican City. Quality of guides was excellent.
We thought the tour of historical Rome was a little pricey (450 Euro plus tip) since the guide did not go into any of the attractions but rather waited in the car. So your “guided” tour was essentially a fast briefing in the car before entering. Also, this tour did not include the cost of the tickets to get in the Colosseum/Forum.
It is important to note that the price of the tours, includes round trip airport transfers.

We booked the driving tour of Rome including the Colloseum for last week, and had Ivano as our guide. He was extremely prompt, and so enthusiastic and full of knowledge for the city of Rome. It was the first full day of our stay there and we were able to see a lot of the top sights of Rome during the trip with not too much walking (we walked so much the following 3 days!). It really gave us our bearings for the following days of our trip. He was very flexible, for example we were staying near the Trevi fountain so he modified the tour to avoid that. The car was very modern - and Ivano nagivated the busy streets perfectly! What more can we say? A perfect start to our stay in Rome. And Ivano also recommended a wonderful restaurant (Il Gabriello, near the Spanish steps) which we visited on our last night, as well as a great salad bar. We would certainly recommend Ivano's company, extremely good value for groups up to 6 as you pay per car rather than per person.

Our family had been on an elegant Seabourn cruise but we wanted to end our vacation with a tour of Rome before flying home. DGS picked us up at the dock - toured us around the sites we wanted to see- got us guides- and made our last day a great experience. I would recommend them without reservation. You won't be sorry.

We booked a tour of Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano with DGS while in Rome in October. We had a fantastic day. Our driver, Joseph, was personable and did everything possible to ensure we had a wonderful day. We were treated to first class service wherever we went and when we returned to our apartment in the evening he gave us a neighborhood restaurant recommendation that was so good we ate there 2 nights in a row!

Great trip, beautiful day and perfect guides.

The DGS drivers and guides took us to the best tourist attractions in Italy. The Livorno, Florence and Pisa tour concluding with the leaning of tower of Pisa was out of this world. The marble building structure of the leaning tower was magnificent. The church and other beautiful buildings around it added to the beauty of the place. Rome was very close to my heart as a Roman Catholic Christian. It has long been my dream to see the Vatican and with the private tour guide, my dream came true. The basilica was grand. The history of the Catholic Church came alive. It gives me goosebumps just talking about it, much like my experience being in the Holy Land. The rest of the places like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, etc. were also great structures that no one should miss on their Civitavecchia visit. The Naples, Sorrento, Positano and the whole of Amalfi Coast was breathtaking! The scenery was postcard perfect. The narrow and winding roads to the little side road shops in Positano seems to be only seen in the movies. The highlight of the Amalfi coast tour was the lunch at Trattoria La Tagliata family restaurant overlooking the waters atop the side of the Positano mountain was a movie worth place. The food would have been perfect if we were warned that the fist plates served were only appetizers and of course with white or red wine as you please. As hungry as we were, we indulged on the appetizers as if there was no tomorrow. It was too late when we heard from the other tour group behind us to leave some room for the main meal and dessert following it. In short we did not taste the main course. We were served the dessert, lemonchello and espresso which were all so good. There was also not much time as we were rushing to go to Pompeii. My overall rating of the DGS tour? EXCELLENT!!!!
