“Best Memories of our Trip was thanks to Driverinrome”
Reviewed 26 October 2011

We were a bit apprehensive about booking tours outside Canada but after many excellent reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to go with Driverinrome (Top 10).

Between the great correspondence between myself and “Drive in Rome” (Suzy and or Daniele) all done via email, they were courteous and gave me all the information I needed to make a real clear choice in the type of excursions we wanted.

We had taken a cruise to Italy with one day for Rome. Problem is that Rome does not have a port large enough for cruise ships to dock. Destination of Rome (Roma) docks at the port of Civitavecchia which is about 90 minute drive away. We did not want to be on a tour bus with 80-100 people. We also knew the streets in Rome are small and narrow and nowhere for a tour bus to park close to sites. Hence, we hired a driver for the day.

Ermanno (our driver and new best friend) was at the port waiting for us (he arrived a little after the scheduled time of 8AM but, this was not this fault has there is heavy security at the dock and many check points for him to go through. Note for others not to panic if driver is a few minutes past scheduled time. Tour buses take precedence).

On the 90 minute ride to Rome had a great conversation with our driver who took time to get to know us and our likes and dislikes. Realized we really wanted to focus on the art of Rome. Since we just had one day to see such a major city it was wonderful to have such a knowledgeable person to help plan our day and help us see all we most wanted to see there

Suggested that we must see the Sistine Chapel. Due to lines and people, we did not think this was possible but, we did it and where ever pleased how quickly the line went.

He would park so close to all the sites that we had virtually no walking to do. He had insider tips that made the day fun for us. He took the time to show us things not in the guide books. Not only did we see all of the main sites, but he showed us some really great things that we were not expecting and that we truly loved.

Like many other comments: “Our only regret........not using Driver in Rome in every Italian port!”

“The best tour company!”
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We recently did a Med/Greek Isles cruise - we used Driverinrome for 4 tours. They are fantastic to work with, the guides are very knowledgeable and the drivers/busses are excellent. I would highly recommend this company for any tours in Italy as well as transportation from the airport to Rome.

“Amazing three days with Driver In Rome!”
Reviewed 19 October 2011

We were on a Western Med. cruise and booked with Driverinrome well over a year in advance for our 3 visits to Naples, Rome, and Florence. We joined together with 6 others from our cruise ship to have a van of 8 for each tour. Driverinrome was great from the beginning to end with responding to emails and questions for our group.

In Naples and Rome we had Danielle and he was GREAT! Very informative, funny and personable. In Naples we made an extra stop at a Vineyard which was great and did a wine tasting. He was always prompt and excellent at telling when and where to meet at each stop. Our group has nothing but great things to say about him and very happy to have him do 2 of our days. In Florence we were driven by Roberto. He was very good as well but Danielle is a tough act to follow! Again Florence was another great day and Pompeii was one of the highlights of our trip and we had an excellent guide for our two hour tour there.

We never once felt worried about missing the ship, where to go, or anything else...just enjoyed our days. You will not be dissapointed with Driverinrome, they are excellent!

“Physically challenged, we see seven major sites in one day!”
Reviewed 16 October 2011

Even though two of the eight of us have difficulty walking far, Driverinrome made it possible to see all seven of the major sites in Rome we were most interested in - in one day - and in comfort and style! Our driver Luca was so helpful with those of us who needed help getting in and out of the van. And the van was air conditioned, roomy and comfortable. We felt confident and safe being with Luca. Since we just had one day to see such a major city it was wonderful to have such a knowledgeable person to help plan our day and help us see all we most wanted to see there. If we are ever planning to be in Rome again, Driverinrome will be the first call we make!

“Great tours and excellent service, made the trip a success.”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

We had transportation from airport to Rome and tour of the Vatican that was excellent. We also set up a day trip to Pompeii and Pasitano. A long day but the driver was great. He stopped and adjusted the schedule to meet our requests. Very efficient and effective. We used Remo and his family for the past 2 trips to Rome. This was the third and they are only getting better!!
