What people are saying about Civitavecchia

Fantastic day

Our driver Lucca was a perfect gentleman. Although we (granddad and grandma )have been to Rome twice before and thought we had seen everything, he took us to places that was out of this world with the most fantastic views, especially his little secret place " WONDERFUL". Lucca was a perfect guide and answered all our grandchildren's never ending questions . Charlie 11years old was promoted to co-pilot of Mercedes people carrier which was new and immaculate . Libby 10 years old was treat like a princess. Nothing was an issue. We all say THANK YOU Lucca, for a wonderful day. X X X X X X Fantastic value for money .

Truly great experience. We had our own personal driver and guide for the entire day. No waiting in line, no trouble and we were able to see all the sights in great detail. We were on a cruise and for the little bit more expense we had this wonderful guide and driver and we were able to go inside the Vatican, Sistine chapel, St Peter's basilica and tour the Coliseum plus see the Pantheon and Trevi fountain. I would not hesitate to book this again. Everybody was very accommodating.

Seen a lot, great driver and always right in the middle

Our driver picked us up at the ship on time and had great route suggestions for the day. At all tourist highlights, he found a parking space just around the corner, so that we could look at a lot. We got skip-the-line tickets for St. Peter's Basilica in advance, he drove us there and picked them up on time. During the trip we received a lot of information and were able to ask anything that interests us. There were 8 of us and it was absolutely worth it.

Outstanding guide

Our guide was vigilant in keeping tabs on individual group members’ needs and keeping the group informed; he mixed a depth of knowledge on a wide range of topics and issues with genuine humor and humanity; we unreservedly recommend him to others
