Amanda Karr was our guide and we were so lucky to get her. I love how passionate she is about history and her work as a teacher basically, as she helps us to understand just how incredible the history of Rome really is. It was a hot day and yet she was always checking in with us as to our comfort level and keeping us in the shade as much as possible. I loved having a private tour and it was worth every penny. Amanda answered all of our questions and left us more enlightened when it was all done. Can't wait for another trip.
I was so happy we booked the private tour. Our guide Elelana was excellent. She answered all our questions and let us take all the time and pictures we need. We were in Rome for 5 days and this was by far our most enjoyable tour.
our guide was an art historian. she took the time to explain what we were looking at, and provided a picture gallery of what it was like centuries ago. Barbara was an over the top guide
Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and engaging for the adults and children.
Our guide was a girl from Spain and she was extremely pleasant and knowledgable.
Family of 2 adults and 2 pre-teens(12 years old). Marcella was excellent. She is so knowledgable, warm and friendly. We felt her love of Ancient Rome and in turn, loved it also. She listened to all our questions ... yes even the childrens. She took time explaining. She is a teacher Because of Marcella's depth of knowledge, I think this tour is best for adults. The children, though, loved the tour and Marcella held their attention for the entire 3 hours. They were sad to have the tour end.
Loved it! The private tour was the way to go and Stefano really helped us understand the coliseum and Forum. He even walked us to the church where St. Peter's chains were which was not part of the tour. Thanks Stefano!
Excellent, Vicenzo was so knowledgeable and answered many questions. Though this was his first english speaking tour, he was very easy to understand.
Our guide was very pleasant and informative. Highly recommended
Our tour guide was top notch. We arrived 10 minutes early and she was waiting for us. Francesca is a art history expert and directed us to the things she wanted to highlight but also the things we were interested in, so we felt it was very customized. It really is the only way to see the Colosseum.
This tour would have been overwhelming without a guide and Stephania was perfect:) She was very informative and fun to be with - managed to present Roman history in a clear, understandable chapters. We highly recommend this private tour - and highly recommend Stephania to guide you!
Our guide, Mariella, was fantastic! She literally knew where every rock came from - and told us! The Colosseum was the highlight of this tour.
We were so pleased to have had Marta as our personal guide. She was professional, provided us the graphics and a great narrative of what the ruins would've looked like in their original appearance. It's quite a hike but you will appreciate the legacy of Rome. It's a must-see! Marta, grazie di tutti
Sarafina was a wonderful guide. The pace of the tour was perfect. We had time to ask questions and really admire ruins. Sarafins's knowledge of the subject matter was very good.
