  • Chad Bunce

    The bus was covered, which was great because it was VERY hot in Rome and the sun was scorching. The city was packed and very busy, but all of our bus drivers did a great job of navigating the streets. At a few stops there were two buses in a row, which was awesome given how busy it was. We also loved being able to skip the line for the Vatican and get right inside!

  • Stephen Mann

    Not easy to get to the tour guide shop and meeting point.
    That said Francesco our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I would definitely recommend you do the trip round the Vatican using the guided tour option. If the guide was as good as Francesco you will see why. He deserved his drink at the end.
