It’s a fact that when you book  Rome private tours from the Cruise port to Rome, you will see a whole lot more by car than by bus or public transportation.

.
By car you reach Rome quicker and more efficiently, private driver service vehicles are specially licensed to access the historic center to get you to see and visit more MORE amazing places in Rome in LESS TIME!

As tour buses are restricted from accessing the historic center, cruisers on bus tours are limited to the number of sites they can see and visit… usually less than half than on private tours by car!

Because taking trains and public transportation is so time consuming  (usually around 2.5 – 3 hours to take shuttle bus from the cruise ships to the main cruise port, then bus or walk to the train station in Civitavecchia, wait for the train which takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to Termini Station, then take additional buses or metros to your final destination attraction),  you are greatly limited in terms of how much of Rome you can really see DIY. 

PLUS, unfortunately you also take the risk of missing your ship if you miss your train or get lost (which has happened!).
.

Also unfortunate is to find a public transportation strike on the same day your ship docks at the port, and find yourself stuck on your ship for the day because the few Civitavecchia Taxis available are gone.

On Rome private tours you are conveniently picked up and dropped off right on the pier next to your ship for easy door to door service you can count on.  

This makes your tour incredibly predictable knowing in advance when your tour will start and end, and not have to worry about buses and trains.

You simply meet your personal English speaking Driver who will be waiting for you on the pier next to your ship holding a sign with your name, and off you go to Rome!

From Rome, your driver will ensure you will depart from Rome at the required time to arrive back to your ship in time for your voyage to continue.

Private can even COST LESS than cruise ship bus tours

.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that private tours are too expensive or too extravagant!  
.

Private Rome Tours are, in fact, often LESS EXPENSIVE than bus tours and generic shared group tours, and sometimes even not much more expensive per person than using trains, buses, metros and taxis (on a DIY visit to Rome).

Touring with like minded tour mates you get to know in advance is far more enjoyable than being stuck in a van full of strangers that you may not have anything in common with and not enjoy your tour.

Your driver will stop next to most attractions reduces excessive walking

.

Private tours can get you in where tour buses cannot access, and much quicker and efficient than relying on public transportation.

.
Because private driver vehicles have special license that permits them access into the restricted city center (buses are RESTRICTED from accessing the center, they can only stop around the outer parameters… quite far from most attractions) your driver can take you directly to the attraction you are visiting and drop you off as close as lawfully possible.

.

Private Tours are ideal for families with kids

International travel and cruising can be quite challenging for families with children…. So why not make your Rome tour the easiest and most carefree day of your cruise by booking a private tour that suits your family’s interests and needs, and have your personal English speaking Driver taking great care of you so you and your family will enjoy a fun filled day in Rome safely and comfortably.

.

On our tours, children have the opportunity to experience the wonders of Rome that they would only otherwise read about in history books or study in class. 

.

If you are traveling with children younger than 8 years old, we can also provide you with complimentary age appropriate safety seats for your private vehicle.

Touring by car is much less exhausting for children as excessive walking is minimized, and you are comfortably driven in a deluxe air conditioned vehicle from site to site.

Touring by car is ideal on very hot summer days when the temperature could reach 90’s, or inclement weather in spring, fall and winter when it can be cold and rainy.

Private tours are most suitable for cruisers who are elderly, have mobility issues, and wheelchair users

Rome private tours are also most suitable for cruisers who experience mobility issues or use wheelchairs to get around easier.

Because our tours are private, you may customize them to best accommodate abilities (such as skipping some sites that may be too challenging to visit, and substitute them with sites that are more suitable).

Because you are taken as close as lawfully possible to each location, you minimize excessive walking so you can enjoy more of Rome comfortably and effortlessly. 

Unlike bus tours that require members to keep up with the group, or rushing on public transportation,  on a private tour you enjoy Rome at YOUR own pace without being rushed or over exerted. 

.

Private tours are flexible and customizable

.

Bus tours and shared shuttle tours have a fixed unchangeable itinerary with no possibility to change as you are obliged to follow a group.
