I highly recommend his services. There was a strike that day and he rearranged our route to ensure that we saw everthing we wanted. He was very interesting and informative and we will definitely use him when we return to Rome again.
We used them in '02 for a half-day tour of Ostia Antica (GREAT) and Naples/Pompeii (very good).
I believe they also have a "hop on, hop off" plan. Take a look! http://www.shop.viator.com/brochure/...E=2390GRESHUTT
If you don't have time for Pompeii or Herculaneum, Ostia Antica is a great substitute.

We used Bob's Limousines & Tours In Rome. Are driver was Alberto Rossi. He was wonderful. Took us to places we did not expect to see and was so informative. Great Tour. You can contact them at [email protected]
Is there anyone out there who is traveling on the Millennium leaving Venice on 8/1/04 who is interested in sharing a tour? Let me know.
We didn't feel rushed at all. I was glad that he did not try to get us back to the cruise ship at the last minute. I think I had emailed him that we did not expect to see everything in Florence and Rome and would rather take in fully what we did see. He picked us up at the ship about 8:00am both days (maybe a little earlier for Rome) and we were back at the ship about 5 or 5:30; it was a long enough day for us. Claudio is not a license guide, but he did stroll around with us where he could and gave us plenty of insight. Hope this helps, feel free to ask more questions.
See you found the post--or maybe you weren't talking to me on the last thread. We did you a tour guide in Naples--I think it was sorrentolimo.com. Gennaro was our driver and very good. He set up an English speaking guide for us in Pompei; she was 100E extra.
ENJOY YOUR TRIP!
He had one of his drivers transport us to the ship as well as pick us up after the cruise.
We had a wonderful experience with this organization and highly recommend their services.
Daniele and Aldo were each a wealth of information and fun to be with.
pls email if you have any questions.
We were picked up at 8:00 am and dropped off at 6:00 pm. We were never rushed and we keep describing it as the perfect day on our entire cruise. Carlo took us all over Rome and included the elements that we really wanted such as a local coffee experience, the best gelato, and going to my uncle's favorite pizza place near the Trevi fountain.
Through the whole day Carlo looked cool in his suit and was the total gentleman helping us in and out of the Mercedes minivan at every stop. Carlo can be reached through Claudio at www.limoinrome.com.
Hope it helps to you too.
