Very well organized trip directly from the final stop of the bus shuttle in the port of Civitavechia. Be careful when choosing the bus shuttle, do not choose the shuttle to the train station! The tour guide in Rome by Mauritio was very pleasant. After a contemplative and informative walk around St. Peter's Square and a subsequent bus tour along the sights of the Tiber, we walked from the Coluseum at a leisurely pace and with many breaks and explanations by Mauritio back to the city center to the Trevi Fountain and the Piazzo Navona. During the lunch break held there, you should visit the Spanish Steps on your own, as these are not part of the tour guide's route. The explanations were extensive and very easy to understand, also thanks to the good and far-reaching headsets. All this at a more than reasonable price! The tour guide more than deserved the tip, which was suggested with a non-intrusive remark! Again any time

This was a great way to see the highlights of the city when you only have a short time to visit. Included in our ticket was the transfer on SIT Shuttle Bus from the Civitavecchia cruise terminal to Rome. For those who may have trouble walking It is quite a walk to the Hop on Hop Off Bus stop from the SIT shuttle drop off point. Catching a taxi is a good idea for those with impaired walking abilities. The full route was longer than advertised because of traffic but for us that was fine. We enjoyed seeing the city on top of the bus. The Hop On Hop Off signs were easy enough to spot. There were employees around the area pointing us in the right direction. The Get your Guide Employee at the cruise terminal was very informative and did his job well. He made sure we understood where to go and what to do.

Patricia is a very nice guide. Got a nice impression of Rome. Apparently 2 excursions were mixed up. Panoramic tour and classic tour. To stay with the group, we opted for the upgrade of 10.00 pp for the classic tour. Great choice. It is quite a walk as the bus stops at 2 places and then we continue on foot. Tired but satisfied we look back on a beautiful day!

Excursion highly recommended. With the classic tour the schedule is from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. approx. The guide Beatriz and the historian Jan have shown us Rome with great interest. Congratulations for the professionalism!!! It becomes very enjoyable and they take into account some free time. I would repeat without hesitation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very quick visit in Rome but thanks to the Alesia guide we were able to see the most relevant and with very good explanations.
