Nice ride, until the bus broke.
Tom_M
, Oct 2021
Nice drive around the city. Unfortunately the bus broke down (freak thing, seems the suspension failed on the driver’s rear side) and we wound up grabbing an Uber.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Tom, thank you for your review. We are happy to know you enjoyed the tour around the city. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and we apologize for that; anyway we thank you for understanding. Next time you're in Rome, if you want, we'll make it up to you with a much better experience. Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off City Tour

I think it would be helpful if they gave clear directions how to get to the attraction at each stop. Other than that it was fine.

Dear Karen, thanks for your opinion; your feedbacks help us to improve our ability to intercept the aspects of our product that need to be worked on. We are happy to know you liked the experience onboard. We will wait for you next time in Rome Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

Delightful Rome Tour
susii_h
, Oct 2021
This was a delightful 1 1/2 hour (with out stopping) tour. Read the route - It contains 8 stops, so not all places can be visited. We enjoyed the narration and getting an overview of Rome.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Susi, we thank you very much for your good review. We are happy to know you enjoyed the tour and you liked the commentary onboard. The itinerary is the same followed by all bus companies, established by the municipality of Rome. Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off tour

Complete waste of money

Having to wait 25 mins because the buses were all full, either lay on more buses or take less bookings
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Nick, thank you for your review. In this post covid period, our frequency is 20/30 minutes as specified in our brochures and by our sellers. Fortunately, many people choose us so it is possible that the buses arrive crowded; however our assistants guarantee the accommodation of guests in the shortest possible time. We thank you for your review and we send you our best regards. I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

The Wheels on the bus go round and round
Dori_A
, Oct 2021
It was a great way to see the city…get your bearing as to where things are and what you want to spend more time doing. Earbuds are included and you hear the history of what you are looking at. I would have given it a 5 but as stated in previous reviews we had a little trouble finding the first stop.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Dori, thank you for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed the experience on board, the organization and the itinerary of our open buses. We are also very happy to you liked the commentary. We wait for you next time onboard! Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

Toni_M
, Oct 2021
They did not prepare for the additional traffic on this day. Every bus was delayed, we ended up waking a lot. May not have been totally their fault but they could have handled it better.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Toni, thank you for you review with your opinion. In this restart period, our frequency is every 30 minutes, except in cases of demonstrations or strikes (as published in our brochure). In particular, the days you mentioned there were different demonstrations and meetings of famous personalities that have congested the traffic in the city and impacted the circulation service. Unfortunately, as you said, is not our fault; on our own we try to offer the best experience to the tourist even when working in a city as busy as Rome. Next time you're in Rome, we'll make it up to you with a much better experience if you will give us another chance. Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

A WASTE OF TIME
Gina_J
, Sep 2021
The hotel did not know where the closest bus stop is, it took an hour walking around asking to find it near the Vatican. The bus did not get near most of the sites to take photos and did not pause when it was near a site to take photos. The commentary was poor. I have been on Hop On busses in many cities and this was the worst.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Gina, we are sorry for your unpleasant experience. In compliance with some municipal decrees, for security reasons and respecting the pedestrian areas, the buses can't arrive inside some areas, but only get as close as possible. In other places the bus passes directly in front of the monuments allowing you to enjoy a wonderful view. These rules are valid for everyone, so all tourist buses do the same route. We are sorry to know also you didn't like our commentary: large investments are being made to upgrade the content of our audio guide (which only in our buses is available in 13 languages) and more investments will be made to optimize the audio track. Thank you for your opinion, we are sure we'll make it up to you next time if you'll give us another chance. Thanking you for your review we send you our best regards. I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

You need to publish the scheduled times BEFORE the booking process. By the time we got to the bus we had time for exactly one hop.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Dear Roger, we regret that you have not been able to have the time necessary to use the service. The timetable is available on the website, on our brochures and in the tickets points that distribute our tickets. Furthermore, it is always our care to inform customers that the tour lasts an hour and a half to allow to organize better. Thank you for your opinion, we are sure we'll make it up to you next time if you'll give us another chance. Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

Everything went perfect, bus was even disinfected at some point. Only at some points it was a bit difficult to spot the monuments they were talking about on the audio guides.

Dear Anony, thank you for your good review . We are very happy that you have had the opportunity to appreciate the sanitation protocol on which we are investing a lot to ensure the safety of our customers. We wait for you nex time onboard! Best Regards I Love Rome Hop On Hop Off Staff

Max 15 min waiting time. Slow enough to enjoy the view and comments. Perfect in a sunny dry weather.
