Roaming Rome

Meeting place was clear for start of tour guide as email was sent to clarify. Small groups. Guide was nice and knowledgeable. Not at all clear which hop on off bus to take and locations of pick up. Bus comes only every 30mim… was the greenline

Dear Mrs. Helen_H, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your review. We are deeply sorry to hear that you felt that the tour didn't live up to expectations. About the Hop On Hop Off sightseeing tour, 30 minutes of waiting is the regular time between one bus and the other. All Bus companies have a similar schedule and the Greenline Bus Company, our official partner, is for sure one of the best, in fact, other clients had the same package and we did not receive any other complaints. This tour package is extremely convenient and we always receive positive comments. We would like to thank you again for the feedback, and we are sorry if the visit wasn't as you expected. Kind Regards Stefano D.
hop on hop off bus and colosseum

our tour guide was very knowledgeable, but it was a bit difficult always understanding what she said. She is Italian!! We felt the tour was a little too long but it was interesting.

We had a skip the line to the colosseum plan with our hop on 2 day pass. Our guide, Josie (juicy) was fantastic. She was pleasant, funny, good sense of humor, but most of all extremely knowledgeable about the colosseum. She presented each area of the tour with easy to understand facts. I would give her an 11 out of 10!

Don't use the red hop on hop off bus.
, Oct 2019
Not only did it take time to find the correct bus after asking the street attendant, he said no. The other 2 bus lines kept telling us our voucher is for the red line. We go back to the 1st person we asked on the red line bus and he said yes this time. Then the bus attendant took our paid vouchers, gave us the hop on/off & colosseum tickets. We told him we have a guided tour and he told us no such thing. Once we got to the Colosseum trying to ask the red bus street attendants, they paid us no mind once they found out we had our tickets already. Finally after an hour we contacted the office by phone after not finding the office and after asking several red bus employees and was told we needed our voucher and needed to stop by the office. By that time we were already inside with the tickets they gave us from the bus and the bus attendant kept our vouchers. We paid for an guided tour with audio that we didn't get. I feel we need a refund for the 2 Colosseum tickets.

best way to discover Rome
, Sep 2019
office near colosseum with clean toilets , sadly tour with Italian guide very dull , take hop on hop off in every city you go
Great way to tour Rome.
, Sep 2019
Although the office was a bit difficult to find, the tour of the Colosseum was first rate. We had no issues entering and moving about the amazing ruin. The bus was your typical "hop-on-hop-off" tour. I would recommend this company to family and friends.

The skip-the-line Colosseum with guided tour was great! However, some of the bus stops were rather far from some attractions. Would be great if there are more stops.

This tour is great! The headphones and commentary on the bus were really good. You can use this bus to get to all of the sites you’ll want to see with no expensive taxis! The Collosseum tour was really good! Sam with Fun Tours was our guide. He was EXCELLENT!!
