My husband and I just returned from a 12 day cruise in the Mediterranean on the Norwegian Spirit. We had two tours with the ship and we booked two tours with Rome in Limo, one in Rome and one in Pisa and Florence. There is absolutley no comparison between the quality, ease, comfort, value, fun and enjoyment of the tours. Rome in Limo is the way to go.

We had fantastic tours with Rome in Limo last year, one in Sorrento, Pompei and Herculaneum and three in Rome, Vatican City and Tivoli/Villa D’Este and were very excited to work with them again. Everything with Rome in Limo was perfect again this year. When discussing and booking, Jany and Duman make arrangments fast and easy and provide all the details we needed to meet our drivers at the various ports.

Francesco was our driver in Rome. He was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and really nice. Even though we docked a little early, he was waiting for us by the ship so we did not have to worry about finding him. Since we had spent several days in Rome last year, we wanted to see and do things that the average tourist does not have time to see and Francesco made that happen. He had a lot of great ideas for unusual, but interesting and beautiful places to add to a list I had created. His knowledge of locations, hours of operations and driving short-cuts and his attention to detail enabled us to see everything we knew we wanted and more, and to do it comfortably and without any concerns for arriving late at the ship. My husband has a special dietary need and Francesco knew many of the restaraunts and trattorias in Rome and outside and took us to a very nice restaraunt outside of the city center where they prepare all food to order so my husband's diet restriction could be handled and we enjoyed a delicious meal looking over a beautiful courtyard.

Elisabetta was our driver for Pisa and Florence. She was waiting for us when we got off the ship. She was very nice, knowledgeable, professional yet a lot of fun and a really good driver, too. We had to drive about an hour and a half from Livorno to Pisa and Florence, in the rain and back and we felt comfortable the whole time. She explanined everything we were seeing and provided information about the region and the small communities we passed so we would have an understanding of the people, current life and the heritage of Tuscany. She knows Pisa and Florence extremely well, not only the main tourist areas around the Leaning Tower, the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo, but back streets and smaller cathedrals, as well. She took us to see beautiful overlooks of Florence from a nearby hill-top community and to quiet piazzas where we could appreciate the beauty of Florence that the residents enjoy, as well as to the main tourist locations. We had tickets for specific times for the Uffizi and the Vasari Corridor and she was able to coordinate all the activities we wanted to do and places we wanted to see while working with the time constraints of those tickets.

Francesco and Elisabetta both did outstanding jobs and helped make our time in Rome, Pisa and Florence unforgettable. I strongly recommend Rome in Limo.

If i could give this company a higher rating I would....Whilst on a Med Cruise with 7 other people earlier this year we booked 3 tours with this company... We were off the boat and on our way 8am with the lovely Laura... She was just beautiful she talked and explained everything to us along the way.... stopped and gave us photo opportunites plenty of time at Pisa and in Florence ...there wasnt anything Laura wouldnt do to ensure we had a fantastic day...she even changed our ticket times to see Michaelangelo's David so we didnt have to wait around....if in Tuscany ask for Laura as your tourguide she will even take yolu for what she says is the best Gelato in Italy :) ...next day we docked for our Rome in a day tour and we were met by Salvatore He drove us to all the places we asked to see and explained all we were seeing... Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, past the spanish steps onto the The Vatican where we met the wonderful Julia who showed love and passion for the Vatican ..and was also a very funny girl :) Then Salvaitore met us when our Vatican tour completed and drove us around Rome and off to the Collosseum .... we were in awe of all we saw in Rome... but it wasnt over yet...Salvitore drove us past Roman Forums, Circus Maximus, Caesars Forum ...then up the hill past some embassies to a little courtyard opposite the Egyptian Embassy ... a couple of people were lined up in front of a door & we lined up behind them..... what an amazing sight beyond that Keyhole.... It was a wonderful way to finish our day in Rome..... Im not going to spoil the surprise...If in Rome i would recomend both Salvitore & Julia.... was a day that will stay in our memories forever... our last tour with RIL was the next day when we docked in Naples.... we were met by GP...it was a picturesque drive down the Almalfi Coast to Positano... we spent a bit of time in this pretty little township...then drove the winding roads to Sorento stopping alond the way to take some wonderful photos...after lunch we headed to Pompeii we met Lorenzo in the carpark and she took us on a 2 hour tour through the hidden city...Explaining where each of the buildings were and the history of that fateful day...When we arrived abck at the ship GP gave us a bottle of Limoncello which was lovely.....These tours were well worth it it...and if ever in Italy I would highly reccommend this company.... from the very first email they couldnt do enough to ensure our time in their beautiful country was a memory that would live forever :))

Franco was our fabulous, informative driver for 8 hours of sightseeing. He picked us up at our hotel and moved us to our new place. We had a great day, stopping at places I had chosen from Trip Advisor reviews, and many other sights he knew we'd enjoy. Then we did the Rome by Night. Franco again was our driver and showed us the magnificent views of the city by night. He gave us information regarding our trip to the Colosseum the next day and stopped so we could purchase our tickets, saving us time and money! We ended the perfect day with the best gelato in town, it even had real whipped cream on top!!!! Franco knew just to keep us entertained and happy!!!!

We have just returned from a 37 day cruise to the Med on the Nieuw Amsterdam.. We booked our Rome tour with RomeinLimo (RIL)who picked our group of 7 at the ship. (RIL) did an outstanding job in making our day of Oct. 26/12 in Rome magical and memorable! They picked us up in a luxury van, had a professional driver (Maurizio) who spoke excellent English. All the important sights were done. It would of been impossible to do it all on our own. RIL suggested that we hire a private guide for the Vatican and we were so happy that we did. Our guide Katherine was very knowledgeable, spoke eloquent English, had a great sense of humor. At the end of the Vatican tour we noticed huge line-ups of people waiting to get in. Our guide knew where to go and what to do thus bypassing long lines. We would not hesitate to recommend RIL again and will recommend them to anyone.....RIL made us a special itinerary which included a fabulous authentic Italian lunch in a local restaurant. They had also recommended the sites for us to purchase our Vatican and Colosseum tickets which we had pre-purchased. That recommendation also allowed us to bypass the long lines. Of utmost important is the fact that RIL will custom make us a schedule that allows us to see all of the important sites in Rome and will bring us back to our ship in a very timely manner. They were outstanding and top notch. I would not ever hesitate to recommend them to my family and all travelers.

RomeinaLimo was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. For the Vatican tour. Serena met us at the Vatican cafe where we were having lunch and we were not ready, she patiently waited, she told us to take our time. Then we followed her, she got us through the line ups very quickly. She helped us use our imagination to think how it was in the past and her iPad was a useful tool to show us then and now. She was very knowledgable and a lot of fun. The next day Franco met us at our hotel, the 6 of us loaded into his van that was immaculate and comfortable. We started with the Colosseum, he could not come in with us, but he gave us plenty of time and his cell phone to contact him when we were ready to meet back with him and carry on. He took us to all the major sites, we got out and walked around, and he explained what we were seeing and the history. Without Serena and Franco's explanations we would have looked at the sites and said "that's nice" with their background information they brought it to life for us. They were top notch. We would use RomeinLimo again if we come back.
