What people are saying about Rome Civitavecchia Cruise Port

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 2,135 reviews

This was our 1st time using GetYourGuide and the service was excellent. While we were on the cruise ship, I lost my printed transfer information. In a panic I sent them an EM & received an instant response to which they sent me a trip confirmation immediately to my phone. This was very much appreciated. In addition, our driver was right on time, and he was very professional and super nice.

As advertised, this was a private car with a courteous, meticulous driver. "As advertised" is an important distinction as we had to give GetYourGuide a poor rating about 2 weeks ago for a private car transport that turned onto coach tour bus, stopping at multiple hotels first. Which was not at all what we'd purchased. So THIS time, GetYourGuide redeemed themselves ... to their credit.

At the last minute we had to change our destination because our entry tickets to the Vatican were scheduled and traffic was terrible and our lovely driver did everything in her power to get us there in time for us to make our timing!! Perfecto!

The bus was on time and we were comfortable during the ride

Driver was there on time and got us to the airport quickly
