Great experience! Very informative. Will recommend.
We started roughly 30 min late because we waited for a couple that didn't show up. I fear that they might be waiting at the wrong place. We had to take a 10 min shuttle bus ride from the terminal to a parking lot where the tour guides were. Our tour guide, Daniella, was friendly, informative, and organized. My dad said it's much better than the last experience he and my mom had in the 1980s. The tour began with Colosseum and ended up with the Vatican. Note that with this type of tour, it's most unwise to buy advance tickets (Colosseum or Vatican). Use common sense and consider crazy traffic, delays due to people not showing up, and not sticking to the timelines set by the guide. The itinerary can change because the end goal is going back to the ship on time. Our original group was split into two and one group had to use taxis once we reached the city to get to the Vatican with their 10 am Vatican tickets. However, there's a special event in the Vatican that morning that might affect their plan. The rest of us was a great bunch of people that stick to the schedule so we saw a lot, heard a lot and had a great time!
