On our arrival in Rome, my initial plan was to do a hop-on-hop-off tour, but I had trouble finding one with decent reviews. I decided to spend more and purchase the Best of Rome Walking and Driving Tour and it was, undoubtedly, a great decision! Elaine's encyclopedic knowledge of Rome and her enthusiasm and love for the city made this a truly memorable experience. It was the perfect way to start off the trip. Thank you, Elaine!..more

We met our tour guide Fabbi near the Pantheon and she took us aroundMe and my friend did this tour the day we arrived in Rome and it was so worth it! We met our tour guide Fabbi near the Pantheon and she took us around to all the sites. We started our at the Santa Maria sopra Minerva which is a beautiful secret treasure. From the outside, there is currently construction going on but inside was beautiful. Fabbi explained the history of the church as we walked around, highlighting important pieces but really allowing us to take it all in for ourselves. Next we went to the Pantheon, which of course is a must see when in Rome. We then headed to get some gelato and catch the private car to the orange groves. This view to me is one of the most spectacular views of Rome, and a truly romantic spot. Fabbi took our pictures and truly made it a wonderful experience. We then drove to the Trevi Fountain and from there walked to the Spanish Steps to end our tour. I loved this tour and was perfect for our first day in Rome, we really got to see where everything was located and take in some main sites...more

To say that The Roman Guy provided an excellent tour and Rome experience would be an understatement. Our family did the private driving tour of Rome and loved it. Hilaria the guide was an absolute angel and so knowledgeable. Fabio the driver was amazing, they were both so fantastic that we requested them again for the following tour. Together Hilaria and Fabio were the dream team. Hilaria was also very caring and sweet towards my elderly mother.

Unfortunately, there was a marathon in Rome and access to the sites was impossible because of traffic diversion. Our guide and driver did their best and took us to a couple of alternative areas and then dropped us of to walk in the old part of the city. The company found us a driver and guide and provided us with the tour we purchased the next day. The tour, guide and driver were excellent! We were very pleased with the service...more
