Tour on day of arrival in Rome, how early is too early?

Jump to last reply

We are spending one day/night in Rome prior to our cruise. We'd like to plan some type of leisurely tour for our first day, but aren't sure what time we'd be able to book it. I know there are variables as to how long it takes for luggage, passport, customs etc - but assuming our flight arrived at 8:50 am on a Saturday morning in June, and we used private transportation to the Albergo del Senato, what time would you feel safe booking a tour? We assume our rooms won't be ready, so we'd likely check in at the front desk and just drop our bags with the concierge. We are thinking of doing a walking food tour with Elizabeth Minchilli. She wants to meet at 11:00 at Piazza Campo de' Fiori. She said we could push the meeting time to 11:30 if need be. For those who have experience, would you be comfortable with this time frame?

Before sending her our payment, which she requires in advance to confirm the tour...I'm wondering if this is really the most logical option. We'll be in Rome for 3 days after our cruise as well and could probably switch things around to do the food tour after the cruise.

We could also do an evening food tour with Bruno of Food tours of Rome, or a late afternoon tour with Context Tours.....both are much less expensive than Elizabeth...but she gets such fabulous reviews.

Thanks!
