Off the beaten track in Rome
My husband and I visited Rome for one day (off a cruise ship), and wanted to spend the day visiting sites other than the usual, as we had been to Rome on other occasions. We contacted Katie, having used her once before and found her to be wonderful. She lived up to our high expectations, and took us to visit several sites, some of which we had never heard of, and was able through her extensive knowledge, and wonderful "storytelling" skills to make them come alive for us. It was truly wonderful - we learned a great deal, had a wonderful Roman lunch, never saw a crowd the whole day, and came away with a renewed enthusiasm for Rome!

Francesco is by far the BEST TOUR GUIDE IN ROME!!!!!
After we went on a tour of the catacombs with tour guide Francesco he went with us back to where we were staying and recommended several amazing places to eat and drink. We told him that we are into food and good wine and he then took us to a local store where we could get a bottle of wine and some cheese and bread to take to the terrace of our hotel. We didn't even know we had a terrace which had a whole view of the city until Francesco told us about it. We had so much fun and learned so much that day by just spending a couple hours with him that we booked him for a tour of the Colosseum. He showed up right on time again and began to take us on what I considered my favorite tour of Rome. It wasn't just the Colosseum, it was literally information on every fountain, every plant, every person, and so much history. It was above and beyond what we expected, Francesco was awesome. He was such a nice guy and also a surfer! Being from Southern California my wife and I felt like we had made an instant friend. Francesco has a place at our house if he ever decides to come visit and check out the surf in So Cal! Bravo and grazie mille!

Made the whole experience meaningful and worthwhile
Rome is so complex, these guys really bring it to life and pitched it perfectly for the adults and kids in our small group.
We did a 3 hour tour with Nicole on our first day, of the Coloseum and Forum and hills, and we enjoyed it so much we asked her to take us around the Vatican and St Peters two days later. She was delightful, Italian with near perfect English, high energy, engaging and so knowledgable. She was also amazing at weaving through the crowds - we had no dead time.
Through the same company we also did a tour of the Catacombs and St Clementine, this time with Katie - an American living in Rome, who was also extremely well informed and great with our preteen kids who said it was "absolutely amazing".
It was a complete indulgence to have our own private tour, but worth every cent!
