Good view of the key sites of Rome. The down side was there were several hop on hop off buses and did not know which one was Viator's. It would be helpful to describe this when purchasing tickets. Otherwise there was plenty ites to see and visit.

Route was wonderful however 10 minutes into the night tour which we paid extra for the narrator got sick and had to sit down. We did the next 50 minutes in silence having no idea what we were seeing! We were not offered to come back another night. Poor customer service.

We bought a 2 days tour and we were concerned that the weather will stop us from seeing too much.We were lucky that the weather changed in good,but the tour was prepared for any kind of weather. If you do not have a lot of time to spend in Rome,this tour is the best option to see the city and stop at all the major locations. Crews were very attentive and helpful with all our requests

The stops were far from the sights and limited. A 24 hour pass did not give you the second option tour.
