Manuela is absolutely lovey and did an amazing job for our family with the history of the Roman Empire. We did her coliseum tour including the Roman ruins and loved it. She was amazing with our 12 and 15 year olds. They were engaged the whole time and really enjoyed her and the entire time - which is always the true test. We would recommend her for everyone. Also we are native English speakers and her English is 100% in case you have any concerns you shouldn't. Book this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for choosing me as your guide in Rome, it was wonderful to meet you and your family and show you the best of my eternal city.

I had a great experience with Manuela and I am happy to report that she is the perfect guide for the Vatican. She was incredibly knowledgable and I left the tour so much more informed about Vatican development and history. She explained everything in a fully understandable way. She pointed out things that I never would have known otherwise. The tour with Manuela is time well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Dale. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Manuela is very engaging and a great guide. I really enjoyed her company on this tour and all the information. I appreciated her waiting when I got the meeting point wrong. Thanks again Manuela it was a pleasure meeting you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My pleasure Lisa. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I too enjoyed showing you the best of Rome on this wonderful stroll. Rome by night plus Xmas decorations did most of the job. Hope to have you back in Rome some day. Grazie mille.

We could not have been more pleased with Manuela as our tour guide in Rome. She expertly guided our party of eight through the Colosseum and Ancient Rome as well as the Vatican, sharing tremendous insight along the way. Our visit was infinitely more enriching with her as our guide than it would have been otherwise. Additionally, her knowledge and expertise are equaled if not surpassed by her passion for her beloved Roma and her genuineness as a human being. I offer her the highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for leaving a wonderful review in our full day together. It was lovely meeting you and your family. Hope you will be back for more discoveries. Grazie.

Manuela was a great guide. We loved the tour of the Forum Romanum and the Colosseum. All the information she gave us was really interesting and not just what you read in the guide book. The fact that her English was absolutely perfect made the tour even more enjoyable. The whole family loved it and agreed that Manuela was the best tour guide we've ever had (really, not exaggerating here). Even our 9 year old son was very enthusiastic and recalled a lot of the information she gave us. Top guide!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Iene. Thank you so much for your great review. A special thanks goes to Thomas for his attention and enthusiasm. Grazie mille.

Every once in a great while you are blessed with an experience that lasts a lifetime. That is how we felt about our tour with Manuela today. She possesses a considerable depth and breadth of knowledge and is enthusiastic about sharing. We asked for a full day tour that started in the ancient Roman section and finished in the Vatican. Manuela planned the timing so it was both a relaxed and flexible schedule while keeping us on track to encompass the entire scope of our request. She. Is. Amazing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to have met you and your family. We had a splendid day together I too will remember. Thank you for your amazing words. I hope you will be back in Rome sometime. Grazie mille.

Hi We had a wonderful tour with Manuela and thoroughly enjoyed it. We learned so much from architecture to art - she was extremely knowledgeable without being boring. We enjoyed our 'pit stop' at a local cafe to try the coffee as well as an introduction to Caravaggio. We would recommend this tour as one to do whilst in Rome so that you can appreciate many of the buildings/figures etc that you would otherwise walk past Five Stars!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Great to hear you had an amazing time and I look forward to helping you plan future discoveries in my wonderful Roma. Grazie

Manuela is a wonderful guide. Her wealth of info is phenomenal. She was prompt & incredibly helpful. I wouldn't recommend seeing the Vatican without a private guide. Lines are long. We bypassed them all. Groups were large & noisy. We bypassed all of that. The pictorial guides Manuela has are both education & interesting. Manuela knows every nook & cranny of the Vatican (probably of all of Rome too). We wish had hired her for our tour of Rome. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I'd give her 10 stars if I could.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille. You are too kind to me with this amazing review. Hope to have you back in Rome for more discoveries.

Manuela was absolutely amazing! She's extremely knowledgeable and made our private tour very interesting. I'd highly recommend her! We booked 2 tours with Manuela - Vatican City and Colosseum. The perk of skipping the lines to both of this places was worth every penny! Don't hesitate to book with Manuela!

Manuela is an amazing guide and worth every penny. My family and I spent 3 hours with her for a tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum/Palatine Hill. I lived in Rome and have visited this area with my husband a couple times, but this was a first-time experience for my in-laws and I could not have asked for anything better! She really brought everything to life with her vast array of knowledge and helpful visual aids. Do not hesitate, book your tour with Manuela today!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I am very pleased to know your in-laws enjoyed my tour and will welcome all your friends in my wonderful Roma. Grazie

Manuela was "THE BEST "tour guide we have ever had! We are a family of 4 and I knew to get a personal tour guide as my husband and 17 year old son often lose focus during detailed tours. Well Manuela had no issues keeping us all interested throughout the entire 3 hours! She made everything so interesting the way she described the events. We also found her accent not too strong and she was so easy to understand. She recommended a late day tour of the Colosseum which was great due to heat and crowds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I remember you and the time with your family dearly. Grazie

I can't say enough good things about Manuela. She is definitely the guide you want in Rome. She's so informative, easygoing and entertaining. And she carries her iPad with her to give you even more insight into area you're touring. My teenage kids couldn't stop talking about all the things we learned on our tour. When I visit Rome again I will absolutely book Manuela. ��

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I am here waiting for you and ready to show you more of my wonderful Roma. Grazie.

Manuela was amazing. She knew her history and did a great job of keeping our kids interested and entertained. She had an iPad and books with overlays of how the different sites would have looked. I can't recommend a tour with her enough. It was my son's 13th birthday and he wanted to see the Colosseum, Manuela gave us a day he will always remember.

Manuela was fantastic!!! She moved us through the massive Vatican efficiently, but really hit highlights that we all found interesting. She spoke great English, and made the tour really fun. The day before, we took a tour through Viator at the Colosseum. While we loved the Colosseum, the tour was no comparison. The tour guide didn't speak great English, and didn't make the place come to life like Manuela did at the Vatican. Our group wished we did the Colosseum with her as well. We loved her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you SO much. Next time in Rome we will tour Colosseum together. Grazie.

Manuela made our trip to the Vatical Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica an amazing experience! We really enjoyed our time with her. Manuela is gracious, funny, a wonderful storyteller, and has an incredible knowledge of art history and the significance of the collections, architecture, and art movements. What we learned from Manuela kept coming up as we continued our travels in Italy and visited galleries in Florence and elsewhere. We highly recommend her as a guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille. In Italian it means thank you a thousand times. Your kind words are so rewarding for me.

Yesterday we had a wonderful tour of the Colosseum, the Forum, and Palatine Hill with Manuela. We had arrived from the states late the night before, so our three children (10, 14, and 16) were pretty jet lagged. However, Manuela engaged them all and made ancient Rome come to life with her stories. We are so glad to have had the chance to meet her -- would highly recommend. Excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very greatful for your kind words. Grazie

My family vacation was 2 weeks in Italy and we had several tour guides, Manuela was the BEST one. She was very accommodating for our group of 8. We had young kids starting at 12 years old, teenagers, young adults, and adults in the group and she was able to keep everyone engaged. The time with her few by and I wished I had booked more tours with her. I highly recommend booking a tour with her, you will not be disappointed. Other professional tour guides stopped me and said Manuela is great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you So much for taking the time to write this wonderful review. I am so lucky to have had you and your family choose me as their guide in Rome. Grazie Grazie Grazie
