In Rome, we used Italytours.eu and had them pick us up in a small van as we exited the ship saving us time from using the shuttle bus to the main bus staging area. Our driver Alexander was excellent in navigating the torturous streets and traffic, and managed to get us close to all sites. He provide commentary while driving and found us a nice quiet spot for us to have a reasonable lunch and do some additional sightseeing. We had skip the line tickets for the Coliseum and the Vatican, where we had an expert guide, Isabelle, who knew about all the works of art, even what the painter was thinking at the time. We got to see all the major sights, with inside visits to the Coliseum and Vatican and even had a leisurely lunch.

Going through the Vatican with Paola was very worthwhile. I learned so much more than when I had gone by myself many years ago. Paola knew the history and fun facts that she shared and knew how to maneuver the crowds. Organizing the tour with this company was also very easy!!

Our guide Maria-Teresa was great! She regaled us with many interesting facts and stories that made the coliseum and its history come alive, Our tour of the Vatican was tailored to meet the wishes of our group. We arrived on a cruise ship and our driver was waiting exactly where and when we had planned. Great communication back and forth about getting tickets ahead so we never wasted any time waiting on lines. It was a wonderful tour, exactly as advertised!

Absolutely fantastic Lara was an informative and fun guide. A lot of walking quite hard work for people of advancing years but so worth it. A lot of steps at Villa D'este but wouldn't have missed it.
