Reviews of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome Italy tours:

- Small group of about 10 people, very nice and knowledgeable tour guide. I do have to say that for this tour be certain that you can keep up walking on very hilly, uneven pavement, rocks, and dirt. It had rained, so there was allot of jumping over puddles! The "Skip the line" aspect of this tour was worth its weight in gold. The lines were hours long, and we just breezed right by everyone with our tour guide.

Rome to Pompeii day trip review:

- Great tour, good guides. Good timing. We didn't really visit Naples, just drove past and saw the sights, 15 minutes max. Doesn't matter, Pompeii was absolutely great. One thing destroyed the whole cheer and great day. We had an elderly Japanese women with us; she didn't speak English or Italian. Right at the end before we all hopped on the bus, she disappeared...

- Wonderful. Very good tour guide. Good command of three languages. Truly amazing.

BOOK

Rome bus tour review:

- Very good way of getting around town and seeing the sites first up. We got a 48 hour ticket and also used it as 'public transport' during our stay. Watch out which route you are on though; it isn't always obvious which of the routes you are actually on until it takes a turn in the wrong direction. Highly recommended.

7. Rome Italy tours: Rome Segway Tours.

segway tours rome italy

The advantages of a Segway tour of Rome is that you get to see so much more in a much shorter space of time than you would on a normal walking tour of Rome, plus you will be in a very small group (much more personal attention). The disadvantage is that you will see most of the sites externally only.
All in all it's a very unique way of getting around Rome and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Some highlights of the three-hour Rome Segway Tour are:

  • Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo)
  • Arch of Constantine (Arco di Costantino)
  • Roman Forum (Fori Romani)
  • Colosseum (Colosseo)
  • Trajan's Column (Colonna Traiana)
  • Palatine Hill (Palatino)
  • Santa Maria's Church and its Bocca della Verità (mouth of truth) wall sculpture
  • Breathtaking panoramic views over Rome

Rome Segway tours review:

- Fantastic tour! After a very good training session we kept practicing until we were very confident on them, we headed off around many of Rome's most famous sites. Tour leader was always checking we were comfortable riding the Segway. Leader was very informative as we rode. He always took time to fully explain the sites we saw and answer any questions we had. Loved every second of it!

Rome to Pompeii and Amalfi coast review:

- It was AMAZING! The guides made the trip fun, relaxing and interesting. Our guide in Pompeii painted a picture of what life was really like before the volcano erupted. Because of this I had a better understanding of Rome itself. The Amalfi coast was absolutely beautiful! I found it inspiring and a must to see. It was a long day and we didn't get back to Rome until late but it was worth it.

private rome tour sistine chapel

The Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel are notorious for the crowds passing through during the day. With this exclusive two-hour tour you will have a unique once in a life time chance to escape the crowds and explore the artistic and architectural treasures during this highly personalized tour.

Reviews: Private Rome Tour of Sistine chapel and Vatican Museums

- Being in the Sistine Chapel with just 17 other people instead of hundreds was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Vatican Museum staff were great too.

- I just revisited my travel photos and it reminded me of how special this private Vatican tour was. I am not a fan of organized tours, but I hate crowds and queuing even more. After numerous friends had mentioned that their experience of the Vatican and Sistine was weakened by the hordes of crowds and long lines .... the tour group I was in was small ..... there was nobody there except the Vatican guards. In fact during our entire two hours at the Vatican and Sistine, we never crossed paths with any other visitors. Our local guide spoke with interest and affection about the history of the Vatican, various events within the Catholic Church, and also the creation of the Sistine's ceilings and walls. Ahhhhhhh, even as I write this review, a smile ....... I can't explain how special it felt to have the guards unlocking each new door to every new room just for us. I try not to buy into the exclusivity factor, but I must admit that I felt very smug knowing that groups this small are a rarity and that I was experiencing something that not many people get to do. The guide moved at a good pace (obviously this will be dependent on the guide you get) so being the camera junkie that I am ..... I know it's a bit of money to fork out but I would definitely recommend it. I feel less like I went on a tour and more like I had experienced a rare opportunity.

Rome day trip to Capri reviews:

- Incredible!! Best of the Rome Italy tours. Guide was wonderful and very insightful. Arrived in Napoli and boarded a hovercraft to Capri, where second guide was equally knowledgeable. Ate at a terrific restaurant and were shown the sites of this beautiful island. Taken back via hovercraft to Napoli, where the original guide met our boat and escorted us back to the coach for the trip back to Roma. A wonderful, informative but exhausting day, one we'll not soon forget!
