For a full day of site seeing you can't go wrong with this tour! Danielle was very informative and patient. We visited the colosseum, Trevi fountain and the vatican city to name a few. Worth every penny!!!

First of all our driver was excellent in every way. He could drive like a speed demon, charm the ladies, and inform us all of so many thing most guides would take for granted. Thanks so much La Vacanza Travel for choosing our driver.

The trip was wonderful, the tour guide Danni was amazing and awesome. She prepared the tourist on the bus talking about the places we are going to visit and also showing/talking about the places the bus was traveling. The trip gave some time to roam around by ourselves. Glad we did this excursion with wonderful Tour guide Danni. We will recommend this trip to anyone with Danny as tour guide.

We started roughly 30 min late because we waited for a couple that didn't show up. I fear that they might be waiting at the wrong place. We had to take a 10 min shuttle bus ride from the terminal to a parking lot where the tour guides were.

Our tour guide, Daniella, was friendly, informative and organized. My dad said it's much better than the last experience he and my mom had in 1980s. The tour began with Colosseum and ended up with Vatican.

Note that with this type of tour, it's most unwise to buy advance tickets (Colosseum or Vatican). Use common sense and consider crazy traffic, delays due to people not showing up and not sticking to the timelines set by the guide. The itinerary can change because the end goal is going back to the ship on time.

Our original group was split into two and one group had to use taxis once we reached the city to get to Vatican with their 10 am Vatican tickets. However, there's a special event in Vatican that morning which might affect their plan. The rest of us was a great bunch of people that stick to the schedule so we saw a lot, heard a lot and had a great time!

Hey La Vacanza Travel! Can you add one more type of visit to your list of category? I and my parents are not "couples", "family(young children", "family(teens)", "friends","business", nor "solo".

One of the best tours I've ever been on! Dani our guide was so nice and had such a great knowledge of all the sites we got to see. Got so much done in one day. Bus was excellent very comfortable and well air conditioned and brought us straight to and from the port to all the major sites. Would really recommend this tour if you want to pack loads of site seeing into one day. Also even though we got to see so many sites such as Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain etc the time spent at each sight wasn't rushed and had plenty of time to take it all in. Highly recommend and great value for money!
