Sound quality via headphones was terrible. Constant interference and crackling.
English commentary was dull - absolutely no excitement from the recording at all. Track was out of sync and had long pauses. Other tours have included some music during sites when there was no commentary - on here, you get dead silence.

Tour route was average. There are other providers who run a similar route.

Staff varied between aggressive ticket sellers to disinterested on-board staff.

Choose your bus carefully, as these guys run a number of buses in different livery, but it looked like the service was the same.

Terrible experience on trying to get a Rome Archeological view by using the Archeobus. After waiting for more than half hour for the next one, came the bus with a guest assistance warning us: "Do not take this bus! We are going to lunch now and don't know the consequences. Maybe you have to wait more an hour!".
What a reception! We complain of the situation and again the assistant answer was:" you have to ask about before you buy the ticket!"
After the arrival at Roma Termini another bus was there, by luck, and we could go to the Archeo visit outside Rome. Phones did not work well, circuit is poor and the overall tour is short.
So, better to try another Tour if you want to know about Rome and do not waste your money!

Tried the 110 hop on hop off this August as we only had a short time in Rome...terrible....the headphone sockets didn't work in all the seats......the commentary was usually wrong...ie describing buildings we had passed earlier...don't waste your money or time....I wish I had seen all the comments here before we booked.

We decided to try the local hop on hop off bus to save a few euro.. sadly it was a waste of money.. ok if you just want to use it to get from a to b and are in no hurry.. but no good at all if you actually want to learn about what you are seeing.. the headphone jacks didn't work on most of the busses and when they did the information given didn't always match what you were passing.. very disappointing ..

Stay away from this travel mean! We bought the ticket and used it once only. The queue is very long to get on a coach. we were waiting for the third coach to be able to get on. The stops are limited and not even close to tourist attractions. Service on bus is awful. Windows are full of dust and cannot see anything outside. Not what we expect from sightseeing coach. We used the service in July which is summer. There is no air con. Couple of tiny windows not enough to get fresh air in the coach making it very stuffy like sitting in an oven. Audio tour is not working.
