We were met right on time at the port entrance by our guide Sandro, who was very friendly and spoke wonderful English. He took us to the hilltop ancient town of Tarquinia, where we visited an Etruscan museum and the city hall, and then he did a slight detour to show us the area around Porto Ercole, before taking us to the hilltop town of Capalbio, where he found us a restaurant for bistecca fiorentina (our first - so delicious). We then went to the Tarot Garden of Niki de Saint Phalle, which is amazing in its collection of giant, whimsical mosaic sculptures, some of which are as big as a house! We had a great day and would happily tour with him again. Very pleased with our experience.

Great day out, guide was fantastic and van was comfortable with air con. Don’t do this tour if you are expecting to wander around each place for an hour as you only get a maximum of about 30 mins at each attraction. You do however get to see all of the major sights of Rome in one day in a small group which is far better than waiting for 50 people getting on/off a coach

The tour guide did a good job. He was entertaining and informative. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough time to go into everything. But the trip gave you a first impression.

Excellent, high quality bus. Very spacious, with WiFi, seatbelts, coach or regular seating. Our driver was dressed in shirt and tie and very professional and helpful.

We had a great, easy experience taking this shuttle from the port to Rome. The bus was clean, comfortable and offered free Wi-Fi. Would definitely use them again.
