“Learn about Rome from the best”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

I have used this guide service in Rome twice, once in 2008 and again in 2011 with different family members. Both trips were part of our cruise and we used the private guide service rather than the shore excursions from this ship. I highly recommend them. They are prompt, they take you to where ever you want to go (or you can choose one of their predetermined tours). Their guides are very informative and speak excellent English. Both times the guides made an unplanned stop to fasinating points of interest that we would not have thought about going to. They take excellent care of you and are always making sure that you have the very best experience you can have. You won't be sorry if you use Ivano and his people!

“Took Three day trips to pompeii, Florence, and Assisi with Drive guide Services”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

I Can't say enough good things about our trip to Italy and our day trips with Ivano and Driver guide services. I will use this service again when we return to Rome. the Drivers were on time, very friendly fair and affordable , We were not rushed and learned many things about Italy I am sure we would not have with other tours.

“Claudio gave a wonderful full day tour of Rome”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Ivano at Driver Guide Service (DGS) was very easy to work with to arrange the tour. He promptly replied to my emails and set up everything for us. When the day arrived Claudio, our guide and driver, arrived in a nice new van right on time. We then toured all over Rome, he even brought water for us. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. As we had 3 older children (19-26) with us he added a site or two he thought they would like, and we certainly did like them. He would explain to us what we would see at each stop and then stayed with the van while we visited the location at our own speed. He joined us if possible which added to the experience. I told him I would certainly miss him on our other days in Rome as knew how to get everywhere and how to invent parking spaces when we needed a stop.

At the Vatican he parked and came with us so we could skip the entrance line and benefit from his knowledge as we went through the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peters.

At the end he even made a few calls for us as our international phone decided not to work.

I say to anyone who asks, "Don't visit Rome without a tour from DGS!" Thanks for making our Rome experience very exciting.

“Wonderful experience. Excellent use of our limited time in Rome.”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

My husband, children ages 10 and 13, and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with our guide Luca. He was personable, professional, and knowledgeable. It was clear that he loved his city and enjoyed sharing it with others. It was money well spent. We are returning to Italy this spring and plan to use this service again. This time in Venice. We did use some other tour service companies in other areas of the country and felt that the Driver Guide Service offered by far a superior experience.

“Excellent and informative tour round all the sites”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

We had just two whole days in Rome and wanted to see as many of the sites as possible. Ivano picked us up from our hotel at 8.30am and we didn't get back until 8 hours later. It was an excellent tour. Ivano is a friendly and informative guide who speaks perfect English. We particularly liked the use of an iPad to show drawings of what the buildings used to look like at the height of the roman empire while we were stood right outside the ruins. Also included was a 2 hour visit to the Vatican with Luca who was a friendly, very informative guide, who also spoke excellent english. The day was so packed we had to do the Collosseum the next day which was better because we had more time to enjoy it and we had a more leisurely day. Excellent service and highly recommended.
