This seems to be an old thread but I hope I get some replies.
I just sent an email to the tour company. I need a large van to pick us up at the port, to tour Rome. I know the tour guide will be an extra charge. Is Rome doable without a guide? I know the drivers can give you all the info but can't leave the van.
Any information will be appreciated. Thank you!

When we visited Rome we did not have a guide. Having a guide should depend on how much time you have in Rome and also depends on what you would like to see. If you are getting picked up at the port and then taken back to the ship and you have only one day, then the guide will slow you down a little with explaining the history of each site you visit. If it is only one day you have then your objective is to see as many sites as possible with the little time you have allowed.

If your interests are visiting artwork or you have a certain desire to see museums, then a guide would be beneficial as they would know where the certain artwork is and know which pieces in the museum would be the most beneficial to see.

Once again, I am using DRIVERINROME! This will be our 4th trip using their services for multiple commutes and excursions. They are reliable, courteous, and fun. I most highly recommend this company!

We had the pleasure of using them again in May on a cruise. After we used them several years ago we knew if we were lucky enough to go again this would be who we would use. Remo was our guide, our friends in another van had Daniele. They ARE the best!

Again nothing but good things to say about this company.
We had Giammaria for Florence, Massimiliano for Rome and Mario for Amalfi coast during our Celebrity Equinox Mediterranean cruise last May.
All were fantastic, able drivers, informative and friendly (important when you are spending about 9 hours together).
My emails were always promptly replied to in planning our excursions and we were always well taken care of during our excursions.
Highly recommended and would without hesitation definitely use them again on any future trips to Italy.

We had used Remo of driverinrome for our transfers to and from the airport, Rome and to the ship. I would recommend the company. We actually stopped at his home and he provided a wonderful surprise!
