Driver recommendations for a day of sightseeing in Rome

My family (7 adults) is spending a day in Rome after a week-long stay in Tuscany. We're looking for a driver for a day of sightseeing. Any recommendations? Thanks!

Cars aren't practical in historic centers as many areas are pedestrian only.

I would contact Context Rome, http://www.contexttravel.com/rome/. Places to visit by car are in abundance in and around Rome. This type of service is popular and there's nothing impractical about it. Seasoned veterans know how to acquire access. If you get a referral for the right guide, the excursions can be a ton of fun.

Look at Rome Cabs. Stefano and his drivers have an excellent reputation, and because they are licensed, they can go anywhere (with the exception of pedestrian zones, but those are really not that large or widespread).

Awesome suggestions - thanks! We are looking for someone to drive us around all day and let us get out to see the various sights. Seems the easiest way to do Rome with 7 people and only 1 day.

I'm going to look into Context Rome and Rome Cabs. Appreciate the help!
