We and our young kids loved touring the Vatican Museum and Borghese Gallery with our guide Sara. She has a degree in art history, and an infectious enthusiasm that captivates children and parents alike. We also enjoyed a walking tour around the monuments and neighborhoods of central Rome, and it was great to have the same guide for 3 separate tours. Sara is a native of Rome, speaks perfect English, and is skilled at teaching visitors about the language and customs of her colorful city (including as many Italian words you can digest along with all the other exciting learning).

Exceeded all Expectations
Visiting Rome for the 5th time and being a tourist guide myself I went with a specific goal. I wanted to walk in Caravaggio's footsteps.
I booked 3 private tours with them: an extended tour of the Vatican(4hrs) and 2 tours concentrating on Caravaggio: Borghese Gallery and In the Footsteps of Caravaggio. Stefania Pistone was our guide and after two days of intensive touring with her I can say that I learnt more than in my 4 previous visits to the city. Her in-depth knowledge about art and Caravaggio and her impeccable delivery were second to none.
She also delved into the masterpieces of Bernini, Michelangelo and Raphael describing each piece meticulously as we went along. She made it so interesting that she captivated our attention from beginning to end but without being overbearing. Her recommendations regarding restaurants were such a help. She provided a map indicating genuine eateries serving traditional Roman food.
Thank you Stefania for such a memorable experience. You surely exceeded my very high expectations.

Villa Borghese Tour
My family's trip to Rome certainly was not our first, but we were delighted to find that we still have so much more to learn and see in Rome, and for that we have Katie to thank. Our first trip inside the Villa Borghese completely surpassed our high expectations with our guide to tell us the stories harbored within the pieces at the Villa - it was no shock she has a degree in Art History. She was thoroughly engaging, knowledgable, and made the tour an unforgettable experience. If you ever wish to experience a Bernini sculpture to the fullest, it would be best to have Katie at your side to point out not only the the minute details and precision of the piece, but also the historical context and, if applicable, literary significance. She exuded the charisma and knowledge of that you would associated with your favorite college professor. I wish I had taken notes.

The Borghese Gallery with Katie
Katie took us on the grand tour of the Borghese Gallery. The destination is a must-see and Katie is the must-have guide. Visits to the Borghese Gallery are limited to two hours and Katie made sure that we understood the most important pieces and saw everything. She is passionate about the art and completely charming. She is an American ex-pat and shared her love of Rome during the trip from our hotel and a parting stroll through the Borghese Gardens. We met Katie just three hours after arriving in Rome and it was an outstanding start.
