Maps sometimes not as good as they could be.

Our only criticism is that the maps are not always correct! Enjoyed seeing the 'sites' and choosing the next day, which ones we wanted to visit.

Great way to see the main sights of the city. Sometimes you have a long time for space on the bus, particularly on the weekends.

Can't really rate. Family rode the bus once for only 3 stops although I paid for 2 days. I did have a problem with pulling up the tickets so it's best to print off before arriving.

The Red bus arrived at its first stop 1 1/2 hr after the 9am opening time. Numerous other buses were at stop #7 a few minutes after 9:00 and continued to arrive well before the first red bus came. Now good staging of busses for the RED hop on hop off

Long waits at each stop. Staff not engaged. Very few buses. Choose another company, perhaps I love Rome

The tour and recorded narration were very helpful. Two tips: it can be challenging to find your bus among the ten different bus tours picking up at the same place, and the explanation about where to plug in your complimentary earbuds is easy to miss. There is a panel in the wall by your seat where you plug in and select your language.
