We started our holiday with the hop-on-hop-off bus, which was great because we could see quite a lot of sights already and get an idea of where everything is and how far. Since we started our trip on monday in the Covid period, we were the only ones on the bus for a while, so we could sit all the way in the front where you have a great view. The bus itself was neat, the stops are marked rather clear and the people working with this company were super friendly. We recommend getting your tickets activated at Termini, because at the Colosseum you have to walk quite a bit to the next stop. Also we recommend bringing your own earphones/headset since you can just plug them in with an aux cable, though they do have earphones in the bus. The audio tour is ok, but sometimes its not synced to where the bus is situated, because the traffic can be quite tricky, so you're also fine not listening to the guide. The app that comes with the tickets provides some more walking tracks which are nice!
This was my first time travelling to Italy and my first time visiting the Vatican and it did not disappoint. It is every bit as incredible as people will tell you. The tour guide is fantastic - they will tell you the history of the Vatican and how it came to exist. Michelangelo’s painting in the dome stunned me into silence, it was the most incredible and breathtaking thing I’ve ever seen. It is 100% worth every penny going to the Vatican and climbing the dome to get as close as you can to Michelangelo’s painting. I will 100% pay for this tour again next time I visit the Vatican and Italy.
I had no issues at all. Buses were on time earlier in the day and very close to on time given the traffic of late afternoon. Bus was clean, staff was friendly. Good experience whenever I've booked in the cities where they run. Very good value for the cost.
I recommend this tour! The only thing I would change is to take the longer one
The most amazing experience that I have ever seen. Enjoyed it so much
