Pamela O. with our tour Guide Mariaclaudia
"We loved Maria! Her knowledge of Rome is very impressive and she made it so enjoyable. We will remember this day for a long time / we learned so much about the art and sites! My group of 3 friends spent the entire day with Maria- Vatican, Colosseum, a private walking tour of Rome & we loved slipping into the sites immediately, without any line!! Also she brought our tickets, in case we forgot them- all bases were covered! We loved the convenient little lunch place where she took us and really all aspects of this tour I can strongly recommend, including the communication by emails with the company prior to arrival and directions to meet our guide. Maria is a wonder- any group who wants to hear some of the history of the beautiful city of Rome from a engaging, extremely knowledgeable guide- will say the money is well spent!"
