One of my best days ever
Apr 2020
I did a day trip of Rome a number of years back with my daughter using DGS, I cannot recommend them highly enough the whole experience was terrific and the guide went out of his way to make sure we saw all the best sights as well as explaining the history and significance of each site we visited.
We had rebooked to do another full day trip with DGS but due to the virus this has been postponed until we can return to Europe again
I would thoroughly recommend using DGS for your trip around Rome and any other trips you want to make

If you aren't a fan of battling the traffic, crowds and want to see the BEST Rome has to offer in less time... DO THIS!
Oct 2019
If you aren't a fan of battling the traffic, crowds and want to see the BEST Rome has to offer in less time, a full day tour with Driver Guide Service is a MUST.

We were picked up in a private van by Claudio and shown the highlights of Rome. His knowledge about the history was incredible. Having never been to Rome the information shared was really interesting for us all (incl 2 kids, 10 and 13).

Claudio was professional, punctual to arrive at our booked tour spots (Catacomb, lunch with Allegra and the Colosseum) and friendly.
He made the most of us using the car, by taking us to places like the 'keyhole' (look it up!) which we never would have seen had it not been for his thoughtfulness.

We took the option to lunch with Allegra, firstly as a break in the day for the kids (and us), and secondly to experience an authentic meal with a 'local', It was exquisite!
I can't thank you enough for opening up your beautiful home and for sharing your love of food with us. It was a lovely way to take some time out. We felt very welcome and spoilt! (and your homemade chilli jam was exquisite!).

Overall dealing with Roberta with booking our tour was a breeze. My numerous changes were accommodated and professional. Thanks for an amazing experience of Rome!

Best First Rome Experience!

Outstanding tour in every respect!
Our guide, Ivano, is a great spokesman, and passionate historian for his city.
Mamma Allegra is a gracious hostess, and gifted cook.
We cannot imagine a better way to experience Rome!
A “must do” while in Rome.

This was truly a once in a life time chance for us to experience Rome and its glory
Sep 2019
My wife and I wanted a guided tour of Rome. Ivano picked us up at our hotel.He Ivano was absolutely amazing in that he went above and beyond what we expected. He asked us what we wanted to see of Rome. We told him what we thought we wanted. As the day meandered by he showed us everything that we wanted to see but he also showed us things that we didn't know. Through out the day he explained what we were looking at and the purpose of each and who was responsible for it being there. I am sorry that we could only give him a five rating as the experience that he provided my wife and I was truly priceless. He then took us to Madam Allegra's house for a traditional Roman lunch. She was very hospitable and gracious. I would highly recommend this combination of tours.

The tour of Rome was wonderful. We enjoyed our time with Ivano. He offers a nice perspective of the city from a local point of view. He was knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. Lunch was a nice relaxing break with wonderful food.

Driver Guide Service is A MUST when in Rome
Sep 2019
We have toured with Ivano and Driver Guide Service for years booking tours with Driver Guide Service in Sorrento, Florence and other parts of Italy. And just like a fine Italian wine, Ivano just gets better with time. This service is the best I have experienced from all my travels around the world with tours guides. He provides the history of all the sites you visit with his tablet and animations. The flexible schedule and food stops are the best around. From his constant friendly smile, to his enthusiastic education of all the sites, he helps you truly experience Italy by sharing the culture, history and food of his native city. I consider this service an attraction of Roma itself.
If you are a first timer to Roma or looking for some new things to do on a subsequent visit, book a tour with Driver Guide Service and experience Roma (as well as other parts of Italy) like you have never experienced them before. I certainly will!

Jul 2019 • Family
This company was recommend by a friend. I took a chance outside our cruise ship excursions and booked with Driver Guide Service. We are a family of 6, spend 14 days traveling Europe, via cruise and this was the BEST tour service we used. Arrived in Rome, Angelo was waiting for us once we got off our cruise ship. He was polite, helpful, and explained the sights as he drove us to our Vatican tour ( he even stopped at a few extra sights, bonus!). Once there Val took over. She lead us through the Vatican, skipping the crowds! She was extremely knowledgeable of all the details and was able to answer any question we asked. Took us to the best picture shots also.

Next day, we chose the Full Day Rome. A must do tour if you have a short time in Rome. IVANO was truly passionate. He was great with our young adult children and very accommodating to our needs. His knowledge of the city is mind blowing. As we saw the sights with Ivano's input with enthusiasm, we felt the city ruins come alive. We chose to have lunch at Mamma Allegra's, a beautiful woman who opened up her home to cook us lunch. Her red and pesto homemade sauces were perfect.

This was truly an awesome experience and we cant thank Ivano, Angola, Val, Mamma Allegra, and Roberto (who does the behind the scene stuff) enough. All made us feel like part of their family.

The only way to see Rome!
Jun 2019 • Family
We were in Italy for two weeks and did multiple tours.... This was the best tour with the best guide, Ivano!! travelling with teens on a hot June day is not so easy but Ivano kept them engaged, interested and entertained! Picked up in a air conditioned SUV at our front door, we hit all the spots, had an incredible lunch, breezed thru the lines and dropped off at front door in time for an early dinner.....The only way to see Rome!

We absolutely loved this tour! I’m a tough critic and I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat! From beginning to end Ivano was enthusiastic, fun, funny and forthcoming with an incredible wealth of knowledge. We spent 2 weeks in Italy and this tour was without question the best value and most fun. We loved it! Great company! Thank you for the wonderful adventure! JA
