They try but not enough buses

Concept is good but this company- the blue bus- just does not have enough buses. They only had 4 buses when we were there and none of them had coverage on top when it rains. One... read more

The morning buses were packed and running continuously, but skipping several key stops due to "traffic." A few hours later the wait for the bus was at least an hour and had 1/5 as many buses as other companies. Do not waste your time or money with this company. At one stop we told an older couple to save their... More

The Bus Tours are really worth it. You get a great overview of the City and you can just hop off if you want to stay and look for longer. A great treat.

After being coaxed into purchasing a 48 hour ticket with City Roma, we barely used their services as we'd end up waiting 40 or so minutes (in the freezing cold) at several stops with no busses showing up (whereas the other firms had at least two go by). In the end, we travelled mostly by foot with the odd Uber... More

The buses are dirty, the audio is terrible, out of sinc and not very informative , plays music most of the time. They only have 4 buses where the other companies have 12 and we had long 40 minute waits for the bus to turn up which was not fun.

Concept is good but this company- the blue bus- just does not have enough buses. They only had 4 buses when we were there and none of them had coverage on top when it rains. One day because no one could go upstairs there wasn't enough standing room down below so many were left stranded. The next bus was at... More

Rubbish!! Not enough buses ( they'd be 4 or 5 of all the other companies to 1 of theirs). We were only able to once find a plug in for the earphones that worked and even then info was very basic and uninteresting. Not worth using for a 2€ saving! Avoid!

We bought tickets near the Vatican and were told that the loop around the Vatican was temporarily suspended, but the directions to get to the nearest stop were very vague or incorrect (depending on which of the staff you asked). Eventually found the stop and had to wait about 40 minutes for a bus to arrive. Note that this review... More

A reasonable tour, although the commentary was very basic and only one of the headphone sockets worked every time we tried to use them. On the plus side this seemed to be the only tour that went around at night and Rome at night is fantastic.
