More wait-on than hop-on
Impossible to do a tour around the city with this bus. Bus only stops every 45min at stops, in reality even longer. App also doesn't work. Indicative waiting times fluctuate to 90min... It is faster to walk from one attraction to the other.

Hop on hop off but not as we know it
Oct 2020
Hop on hop off is not possible if the buses only comes every hour or more. Buses were old and dirty as well so all in all I would say avoid. There were 6 of us so it cost 120 euros to go one stop.

Good service , temperature taken before boarding.
Aug 2020 • Family
Good value for money. I got a 72h ticket but probably would have been ok getting a 48h one as after 2 days you have seen most places. Still good value though. Some places aren't too far apart walking but on bus makes it feel longer. They are very keen on you putting a mask on . Very understandable. Very friendly and polite . Also take your temperature before you board . Make sure you stay in shade before you get on.

Stop right at side of colloseum.

Overall I highly recommend this bus service.

Bit expensive and long wait
The service in this bus was ok.i have used this exact city tour bus in other Eurooean cities and the fare was cheaper and more efficient. I found I had to wait a bit to long for buses arrive at stops...longer than stipulated time. Also the stops close to sites and main attractions are too far away, had to walk too far to get to them.

Best way to get layout for where everything is in Rome
Sep 2019
This is the BEST way to introduce yourself to Rome! I took the bus on the whole circuit before I began hopping off because this was my first time in Rome and I was so excited to be there. The bus takes you by all the most important and popular places. The offer guide service in many languages and you get headphones to plug in. Once you select your language, you will hear descriptions on each site you pass. The stops are conveniently located and the bus schedule is pretty regular. Hold onto your receipt as it is your ticket to get back on the bus. I would definitely take this bus again!

Don't Lose Your Receipt!

This bus tour does a pretty wide loop, so you can reach all the major attractions. They give you disposable headphones so you can listen to an audio guide, describing each of the stops.

I recommend booking this tour early in your trip, so you can get a broad overview of Rome. Its especially useful if you don't have a rental car. I am glad I didn't rent a car after seeing the narrow roads and horrible traffic.

After our bus tour expired, we were able to get by using public transportation and Google Maps. It takes a little while to grasp the system for purchasing one-way metro and bus passes, but the most important part is validating your ticket.

Good trip
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Rome. We had a good ride on the bus, which was entertaining, we got off at various points, and saw most of Rome this way.

Hop on bus

Not overly impressed with the route and other hop on buses seem to be more regular and go to the Vatican area.

We didnt have time to hop-off so stayed on the bus all the time. The commentary content is extremely poor in many places and out of sync with what we were seeing. We decided to take another of their buses immediately afterwards and there was even less commentary! Just listening to repetitive mozart music. The poorest of any hop-on hop-off city tours we have ever taken. The staff couldn't care less when we complained. The experience could be much improved by increasing/improving the content and sync-ing it with what people see. Avoid this brand at all costs. Try one of the others.
