The Best of the Best
Being a travel agent I look for the best quality of service for my clients. I cannot say enough about this company! The vans were clean and sanitized, drivers were knowledgeable and explained the history for every site we stopped at or drove past. Need an interpreter? No problem! These drivers did that too! They stopped at any time to accommodate all of our needs. At the end of our journey they were more then our drivers they are now our friends!

Private Day Tour of Rome from Civitavecchia Port
Nov 2019
We booked a private 1-day tour during our cruise. I would rate RPE a 6 on a scale of 1-5 where 5 is excellent! We had a wonderful day with Jon our guide. I wish we had another week in Rome, but he gave us such a great overview and all the arrangements were perfect. We loved our tour of the Vatican and feel like our driver gave us a lot to see in our limited time. Best of all was that he shared insights, lots of history, and stories that brought to life the things we saw. It was easy to make arrangements in advance and Jon picked us up at Civitavecchia Port so we made the most of our one day in Rome. I will definitely use RPE again whenever our travels bring us back to Rome!

Great day with guide/driver
Dec 2019
We had a wonderful day with Max, our driver/guide. He was prompt to collect our family of 5 and took us to all the sights of Rome including a private Vatican tour. Great knowledge of the history of Rome and Italy combined with a good sense of humor made Max the ideal tour guide. Having spent many years in the U.S., Max was very knowledgeable on U.S. culture and Italian culture. He made it interesting for 3 college age boys, too. Expensive, but worth it.

Perfect choice!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We booked this tour at the last minute. We docked at the Civitavecchia port, we wanted a tour of Rome, but had to get our luggage to our hotel - then to Rome to tour? Sounded impossible - but Viator has the perfect solution - enter Manny! Manny picked us up in a roomy Mercedes mini van promptly are 8:00 - and we were off. He took us to everything you want to see in a day and more ! A beautiful park with great views of the Tibor river from an 800 year old church, a pyramid (yes! There is a pyramid complete with a sarcophagus in Rome!) we walked the grounds of the Coliseum (we did not brave the entrance lines) had a fantastic lunch in a busy plaza - (wonderful pizza and wine) plazas, fountains, the church is Peter in Chains, Mussolini’s residence and the balcony he gave speeches from - a castle, Spanish Steps, the Forum, Tavoli Fountain, Pantheon, Vatican (walked around only - we did not go in and tour it), we saw MichaelAngelos home, and so much more! Manny was AMAZING! We told him show us Rome in a day and he did it! He knows Rome! He told us so much history behind each stop and I learned so much more than I ever could have on my own!! We highly recommend Manny and Viator. I had hesitation on the cost - but it was worth every euro!!!

Disney Cruise to Civitavecchia Port
Jul 2019 • Family
My family and I traveled for the first time to Europe on a Disney Cruise from Barcelona. I was nervous to book non-disney excursions but after reading all the excellent reviews for Rome Private Excursions, I decided to take a chance.

From the beginning of my interactions with Luca via email I was not disappointed. He was very professional and all his suggestions were great! When we got to Rome, we were met right outside the Magic ship by Fausto. We did not have to walk like other cruise passengers or take a shuttle bus to the other side of the port like the others.

Fausto was super friendly and was driving a nice air conditioned car (very welcoming on a hot day). The tour was just for our family (3). Fausto took us to all of the top highlights in Rome, which I thought would not be possible as Civitavecchia is an hour from the port. However, he did it! He was super knowledgeable giving us some great history lessons as we passed various structures. He made sure to slow down where possible to get some pictures of other awesome sites. We went to the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the Vatican and he even surprised us and took us to watch a cannon firing which occurs everyday in Rome since the 1800s! The entire time we were with Fausto I felt like the whole town knew him! I felt safe and definitely in pleasant company.

We asked Fausto for some good Italian pizza for lunch and he reserved a table for us at the cutest pizza place with a gorgeous view of St. Peter's Basilica. We had delicious pizza, rice balls, beer and wine for about $50 euros!!

I not only would use this company again, I would recommend them to everyone I know!!!!! Great deal and AMAZING experience.

I also booked the Florence tour with them but I will review that one separately as that was also an amazing experience!!!

Thank you Luca and Fausto for helping me give my family an unforgettable experience!

Best of Rome Tour
May 2019 • Friends
We would have been totally lost without your excellent services. Each of the drivers were wonderful! Max in Rome was so knowledgeable and personable. So willing to adjust the schedule for us as we realized being underground was not a good idea for several of us. Each stop was filled with great information and plenty of time to see the highlights!
So glad my friend recommended you to me! No one should go to these places without a driver! It was great to walk off the boat straight to our own driver.

Best Rome Tour
Our guide, Christiano, made our day in Rome unforgettable. We saw many, many sites in one day, but never felt rushed. Our lunch was fantastic at an authentic Rome local restaurant. Christiano is the best tour guide we’ve ever had. We highly recommend this tour company....request Christiano!
