Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Between Hotel Alimandi and Caffé Vaticano, at the top of the big staircase (Viale Vaticano, 100). A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.
What to bring?
Bring a water bottle, sunscreen and some coins for making wishes in the Trevi Fountain. Since this is a walking (and driving) tour that includes a visit to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, an archeological site with uneven terrain, wear comfortable shoes. Also, because some sites on this small group tour are religious, knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women. We know that Rome is hot in summer - a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.
Q: Is lunch included in the price of the tour?
A: No, but we're happy to recommend one of our favorite spots.
Q: Does this tour include pick up at your hotel?
A: No, meet your guide at Caffè Vaticano across from the Vatican Museums. After a guided Vatican Museums tour, meet your driver for a private Rome driving tour. Then, we tour the Colosseum. Afterward, we drop you off at your hotel in the city center of Rome. If you're interested in adding on a private transfer to the meeting point please reach out to us by email or give us a call at one of the toll-free numbers below.
Q: How comprehensive are the Colosseum and Vatican portions of this tour?
A: In the spirit of seeing as much of Rome as possible, the Colosseum and Vatican sections of this tour are abbreviated.
Q: I have some doubts about my mobility. Is this tour right for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, this is a good tour for you. Our private tours offer more flexibility in terms of pace and special accommodations.
Q: Is there a dress code to enter the religious sites on this tour?
A: We ask both men and women to cover knees and shoulders, otherwise you may be refused entry to religious sites and miss out on a portion of your tour. We understand the summers in Rome can be hot, so a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.

Great Choice for anyone only in Rome for a few days!
We had one day in Rome. This tour was recommended by my friend. The tour and guide were excellent. I pass along the recommendation if you only have one day.
What a great way to experience the 'best of Rome' !
An amazing way to tour Rome!
We really had a fantastic time on our Private Rome in a Day Tour with Sistine Chapel. Our driver Max was extremely professional and helpful and smoothly navigated us through the crazy Rome traffic in a big black Mercedes. Our guide Raf was professional, knowledgeable, and energetic. I give both Max and Raf an A+++ in attitude. We only had one day to tour Rome and thanks to max and Raf we saw it all! I give Roman Guy Tours my highest recommendation! Grazie and arrivederci!
