First we went to Eataly. There you have 1 1/2 hours to eat or to explore the shopping building. There are 2 restaurants where you get a starter, a main course plus a large water for 12 euros through the tour. (There are about 4 meals per restaurant to choose from). But you can also explore the shopping center on your own. We ate at one of the specified restaurants. Everyone who chose the restaurant from the tour sat together at a table. Since there weren't many people with us, this wasn't a problem. Unfortunately, after the meal we only had 10 minutes to explore the Eataly. So if you are more interested in the Italian specialties, you should eat before the tour so that you have enough time in Eataly. At 21:30 we continued on time. We drove around Rome for 1 hour and 15 minutes with audio guide. The tour ended at 10:45 p.m. The staff was very friendly. We really enjoyed the tour

Good time, however the directions for getting the tickets at the Colloseum were very vague & inaccurate & we were late to the meeting point because we couldn’t find the kiosk or anyone who worked for the Big Bus Tour

very practical, explanations given all along the way. it's a good way to discover the city when you get there

It was great and both the lady in charge of the tour was wonderful :)

Tour very nice but the person in stop #3 by coliseum was very rude
