“The sights, sounds, and smells of Rome from the comfort of a golf cart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife and I had an incredible time with Victor touring the city. He clearly knows and loves his city. From the non-traditional attractions, to the incredible food and gelato recommendations, to the super convenient place to pre-purchase tickets for the Coliseum and Forum and avoid the lines, everything was more enjoyable with Victor leading the way. This was such a fun and exciting way to see the city. I recommend taking a tour with these guys to anyone going to Rome.

Roberto was extremely helpful with our scheduling issues as well. On the way to Rome, we had over a six hour delay in Washington. After a couple calls using google voice, Roberto worked with us to reschedule our tour to the Sunday after our arrival and all of our issues were resolved without a hitch.

“Roberto made Rome come alive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had such a great time with Roberto and Gioia Tours! He was the PERFECT balance of fun, history and local knowledge to keep our three kids totally engaged during a full day of touring in the golf carts in Rome and a trip the next day out to Villa D'estes and the catacombs. And a very special lunch (have the chicken!) at a cool restaurant near the App Way that we would have never discovered. Roberto was so much fun to spend two days with for the adults and the kids - and we give him our strongest endorsement possible! No better way to tour Rome than on the golf carts with Gioia.

“AMAZING!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We would like to thank Gioia Tours for making our family vacation so perfect!

We spent a day in Rome before our cruise and did the golf cart tour with Roberto. Our kids ages 6,10,12 and 16 LOVED the tour and Roberto. Roberto is not only extremely knowledgable but also personable, engaging and so much fun!!!

When our cruise docked in La Spezia we were met by Andreas to tour Pisa and Florence. We were pressed for time but Andreas got us to all the sights in Pisa and Florence and even managed to take us to a delicious lunch overlooking the mountains of Tuscany! Andreas was also so amazing with the kids and so enthusiastic and engaging our kids didn't want to leave!


Overall and amazing experience - would definitely recommend them!!!

“Full Day Private Tour of Rome was FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

My husband and I along with my sister and her husband, spent 2 days in Rome prior to our Mediterranean cruise.
The private tour with Sabino was such a highlight for all of us.
He was professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. The tour happened to land on our 30th wedding anniversary and Sabino's personal touches to make our day even more special was GREATLY appreciated!
The anniversary celebration at a lovely restaurant will always be one of our fondest memories!
I can't say enough about the professionalism exhibited by Gioia Private Tours and Trips!
Thank you so much Sabino and Roberto!!!!!
Ciao from Linda, Tim, Sherry and Andy from Nova Scotia Canada :)

Having a private tour guide was the best! The ease of getting around, seeing so much more of the city, and the amount of knowledge of the incredible history of Rome was priceless. My teenagers LOVED it too!
