What people are saying about Rome

If you ever visit Rome, you should definitely arrange a meeting with miss Daniela! She is a great guide and also a very happy and friendly person to be around. Her knowledge about Caravaggio's life and art is very impressive. It's clear how much she loves the painter (like we do). She took us to a nice place in the heart of the city and offered us some great wines and sides to taste (she knows very much about wine too!) We had a lot of interesting chats and we will remember this evening always. Finally, note that her english is perfect.

Amazing experience, definitely recommend. Had Elizabeth as our guide, nice small groups and did all the classic food pairings with relevant drinks (e.g. cheese/meats and wine). Visited all local authentic Italian places and had information about their roots in Italy, did a nice loop on the tour so you weren’t traipsing around for hours. Very knowledgeable local guide who even helped give me directions to my next tour when my data stopped working on my phone!

Eleonora is very entertaining and knowledgeable. Walking through the streets with a local and tasking some of the more traditional food was so much fun. I wasn't sure about this tour when we first booked but have to say it was one of my favorites.

Brilliant tour with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. A great way to see the city!

The guide was great, the food was delicious. We had a great evening!
