  • Khaing 9 Nov 2018
    This bus tour is great but unfortunately, when we visited Rome, the whole day was raining. At first, the bus attendant was not sure about our booking and need to check with the office. But it tools a few minutes and the problem was solved. Overall, it still worth it
  • Ma Jessica 5 Nov 2018
    Will recommend this to our friends who will be visiting Rome!
  • AZMI BIN 5 Oct 2018
