Private tour guides
My family and I recently visited Rome, and had the best time we could ever have expected with this private tour company. Our tour guide was awesome, both in her knowledge and depth of understanding of every piece of Rome. Her passion, friendliness and down to earth nature made it a sheer pleasure to have found this company. Of course the bonus was no queuing in the lines, little crowds and above all the ability to see the sites before it gets insanely busy!
We had many tips for restaurants and cafes that only Romans go to and love, and above all we made a connection with a true Italian who loves her job, and treats you like a person, rather than a number in a group.

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.
