Nothing beats Rome in Limo excursions!
Oct 2019 • Couples
I began using Rome in Limo in 2003, and it had been a love affair ever since! This company is hands down the very best in Italy, and probably anywhere in Europe. The level of service they provide is superb. From all of the pre-planning done with Jany in their office to the final driver drop off at the end of a holiday, no detail is missed and no question is left unanswered. And always with lots of patience and grace! This particular trip, my group of 6 adults traveled to Rome pre-cruise, then sailed Celebrity Edge from Civitavecchia. When we arrived at FCO, we used a fast-track concierge service to breeze us through immigration (highly recommend.) Our first driver was waiting at the pick up spot with a name sign (BTW, in the 20+ times I’ve had a RIL driver waiting on me, not once have they been late, or not positioned right in front with a sign waiting on me.) He assisted us with a porter to get the bags to the vehicle, got everything loaded in the van and had cold bottled water for us. All of RIL vehicles are new, clean Mercedes vans and sedans, air conditioned and extremely comfortable. He took us straight to our hotel, and we paid him his fee and gratuity. (All fees were pre-arranged with Jany for all of the booked services, I knew exactly the euros required for each and every transfer and tour and had pre ordered all of my euros in the US.) That evening we had an evening tour of Rome at night and our guide Luca was wonderful. He was funny, charming, knowledgeable and also knew we were a bit jet-lagged, so he navigated us through the city to some main sites: Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Forum, and the Vatican (amazing at night!) then some gelato and a skyline view of the city before retiring for the night back at the hotel. The next day, Luca picked us up and gave us a grand tour of his city: Coliseum, Pallentine, Forum, Pantheon, Circus Maximus, a real Sunday Supper in his own neighborhood and a trip to the Catacombs. His insight and historical knowledge was the highlight of this day. (There is no doubt after my years with RIL that owner Dumon seriously vets his guides...they are the best, English speaking, always charming and hospitable.) The next morning our transfer driver Gary picked us up right on time and we enjoyed a great ride to port, discussing all types of topics about life in Italy. Gary is also a huge Prince fan as am I, so we shared concert stories as well!
Our cruise was to the Greek Isles and Amalfi, so we were able to use RIL at Catania and Naples. Our guide in Catania was Luca (not the same Luca!) and he, too, was wonderful. He picked us up right at the ship and whisked us through the city to Mt Etna where we experienced the volcano, and the delicious olive oils and honey at Oro d’Etna. The second half of the day we spent in the lovely town of Taormina, eating a delicious traditional Italian meal overlooking the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Luca.
The cherry on top of this holiday had to be our time with Alex in Naples (my favorite destination on the planet!) Alex picked us up at port and took us to Positano and Sorrento...driving along Amalfi Coast is something not to be missed. We stopped for fresh squeezed juice and photos, taking in the majesty of our surroundings. Alex talked to us about life in these villages. In Sorrento, we walked and shopped, and then headed to the ferry to Capri. I had pre-purchased tickets, but while we shopped, Alex went and checked on our tickets and had them converted to vouchers for both the transfer and return to Naples. I would never had known to do that and he saved us time and a huge headache! I can’t say enough about how much we laughed with him and enjoyed the day. It was spectacular and so was he! We were on our own in Capri, but Alex did make an amazing restaurant recommendation and we had a fabulous meal looking out towards Amalfi and the sea. It was perfect! The final morning of the cruise, our transfer driver was promptly waiting outside the terminal to whisk us back to FCO, leaving the multitude of tour buses behind for the cattle, lol! Rome in Limo is a perfect way to enjoy all of the top destinations in Italy. I can’t speak highly enough about the service they provide, you beat the crowds, you don’t wait in lines, you get specialized itineraries and superb service. They are the very, very best at what they do. Grazie, grazie Rome in Limo! Il meglio! Kimberly, Atlanta, GA, USA

Bravo Stephano!
Aug 2019
Enjoyed our 3rd tour with Rome in Limo, this time with a local pickup at our rental apartment. Stephano was prompt and professional, inquiring about our interests. We were impressed with his genuine passion for ancient Rome. He took us not only to the popular sites but also to lesser known (to us) places that were fascinating and uncrowded. We headed first to the Catacombs and Appian Way which was a great introduction to Roman history for my daughters. We then explored the Circus of Maxentius which was free (with donation). Back to the city, to the secret keyhole, view over the Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and a requested stop to Santa Mario del Popolo. He also gave us the option to 'skip lunch' to see more sites which we appreciated.

I thoroughly enjoyed discussing the history, ancient politics, religious art and more with Stephano. We are still talking about how all of us out of change after visiting the Trevi Fountain, Stephano improvised on the fly for coins to light up a Carravagio masterpiece. Having such an informative, interesting and friendly person shepherd us in and out through Rome's history was a highlight of our trip. Thank you Stephano!

Rome In Limo is Still AMAZING!
Jul 2019
We originally used Rome in Limo in 2013 for 3 cities and when I knew we were returning to Rome, the first email I sent was to Rome In Limo. This time we were a family of 4- 2 adults and 2 teens. The cars/vans are beautiful and comfortable. Our English speaking driver, Stefano was a gem. He was friendly and knew exactly the stops to make for our second trip to Rome. The information and the ability of our driver to help us get to the front of the lines and assist us in communication makes your visit so much more enhanced. All of my communication with Jany coordinating the trip was quick and full of information. Stefano picked us up and dropped us off right in front of our hotel. There is no other way to see Italy except with this company. I gave Rome In Limo 5 stars in 2013 and they deserve the same in 2019.

Amazing Tours!
Jul 2019 • Family
We did three tours with Rome in Limo and were treated like royalty! The personal attention fromour guides was top notch. Piero really went above and beyond to make sure my family was able to see all of the highlights of Rome (we enjoyed him so much on our pre-cruise tour that we requested him again on our post-cruise tour). Excellent service, attention to detail, and highly recommend Rome in Limo!

The Best way to see Rome in a Day!!!
Apr 2019 • Couples
We booked a Private tour with RIL for 6 adults to see the Highlights of Rome and visit the Catacombs in a day. Luca (aka Big Luca) was our driver and he made our day fantastic. He is very knowledgable, accommodating and the consummate professional that we saw everything we wanted to see and just loved the chemistry between us and Luca. He is a great Roman and proud to show off his City and Country. You won't be disappointed with booking with Rome in Limo and Big Luca as your driver!

Enrico
Apr 2019 • Family
As someone who is very frightened of all people, I found this man pretty easy to talk to, which was quite a relief. He is mad educated about all of the rad and funky sites he will take you, and knows just how long to talk without being too quiet or too noisy, it is very obvious that he is experienced and legendary at his craft. You can talk to him like he is one of your bros or not at all, whatever floats your boat really. At least I think so. He seems a rather flexible man in that aspect. I for one, enjoyed his company quite a bit, he even opened the door for me sometimes which was hella fly. All and all, I think you should def go with Enrico if you choose this service.

Well worth it
Dec 2018 • Family
My family booked a one-day Christian Rome tour and it was excellent. Enrico went the extra mile to show us important sights as well as some hidden-gems that we didn't know about. The excursion is customized to suit your needs and interests. If we return to Rome, we will certainly be a return customer. Highly recommend.

Perfect 1-Day Tour
Enrico was the perfect host and driver for a 1-day tour during our second visit to Rome. In addition to what we originally had on our list (catacombes and San Clemente), he recommended a number of sites and activities that fit into our taste and schedule (e.g., Capuchin Friar Crypt, keyhole view, St. John Lateran, The Pantheon, great viewing areas). Because of Enrico, we made the most of our one day in Rome to have an unforgettable and fabulous time. He was also very knowledgeable and when it was necessary for us to step out on our own, he provided excellent directions and instruction. We highly recommend spending the day with Enrico!

The only way we could have taken in so much in one day
Nov 2018 • Couples
Our driver, Pietro, was right on time and started us off right away with amazing facts and detail about many sights. Then we met up with Marco, our archeologist guide for the Colosseum and surrounding areas. He was an amazing wealth of knowledge and had fantastic energy for explaining tiny details and making them fascinating. Then back to Pietro for lunch, a tour of the catacombs, and more sightseeing around Rome. My mother is a very fit 77 but would still have had trouble seeing so much in one day without this tour. It has been the best day of our time in Rome and I highly recommend it.
