We were referred by a friend who highly recommended this company and specifically suggested to ask for Big Luca. As it turned out, we waited until the night before to call, and just assumed that we dropped the ball and would have to sadly "wing it" ourselves in Rome. Not only did Big Luca get back to us right away, but within an hour we were scheduled for our tour, confirmed for pick up at the port in Civitavecchia and had a second private tour guide of the Vatican arranged, as well as the Coliseum. As we left the boat in a terrible rain storm, we were greeted by a smiling Luca, fluent in English, armed with four umbrellas, a a spacious, clean van, wifi, and chargers for all of our electronics. Our hour long drive into Rome passed so quickly as Luca gave us an informative history of Rome and Italy peppered with humor. By the time we drove up to the Vatican, the sun broke through and his associate, Stephanie, was waiting for us as we stepped out of the car. She breezed us through the entrance as we watched the hour long lines of people waiting to buy the tickets we already had. She gave us a fascinating tour of the Vatican and the only wait we ever had was the brief one at the restroom (she even guided us to the one with the shortest line!). As we exited our tour (seeing some of the same sullen faces of those STILL waiting in line at the entrance we breezed through two hours earlier), Luca was happily waiting for us outside to continue with our tour. After a delicious lunch at a restaurant he recommended (authentic, not-at-all "touristy",delicious and welcoming), we continued our tour of Rome. Our tour of the Coliseum was also pre-arranged and once again, we bypassed all lines and breezed through. From the Forum to the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish steps, Big Luca was by far, the best tour guide we've ever experienced and knew exactly what time we needed to leave to reach the port with time to spare. Driver in Rome is the ONLY way to see this beautiful city. The entire experience was stress-free, comfortable, humorous and the highlight of our trip. Thank you, Big Luca and the entire Driver in Rome staff!
