Ennio was brilliant!!!! We spent two days with him and I think I learned more than I ever could imagined. He knew everything and shared so much with us. He brought to life Ancient Rome and shared the story of the jewish ghetto in such a thoughtful and meaningful way. Amazing!!!!!!!!!
Michael R.United States
Ennio was amazing. We spent two days with him and he exposed us to the history and culture of Rome in such a spectacular way. I was traveling with my 13 year old son and he taught us so much of the history of the Vatican and Rome that was both informative and interesting. Ennio made the city become alive. I imagined Rome as it was throughout time. He shared images and stories that were so great. Best of all he was a great guy! We felt like we were friends! I will be coming! See you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Michael! Thanks a lot for your reviews! I really hope to see you and also the other part of your family soon in Rome and when i’ll go to NY again i’ll contact you for sure. Enjoy Florence and say bye to Ben! Thanks a lot again! Ciao. Ennio

I give our tour a 5/5 stars. Ennio was fantastic. He started communicating with us about 2weeks before we arrived in Rome so everything was so easy. His knowledge was incredible and very interesting and my teenagers loved every minute. We would highly recommend this tour especially with Ennio.
Dean P.United States
Ennio is an amazing guide. He gave our family (including two 12 year olds) an incredibly detailed and fantastic tour of the Vatican. We learned so much about the history of the Vatican and what to look for. We stopped many times and he showed us historical pictures on his tablet which really helped a lot. He speaks perfect English and is very professional. Highly recommend Ennio and this tour.
Kai C.United States
This was our first time using a private guide by local. Ennio was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. It's clear he's passionate about the arts & history of ancient Rome which made the overall experience completely engaging. My daughter especially enjoyed touring the Forum seeing it through the rich description of the "way things were" as annotated by Ennio. My wife asked a ton of questions throughout the day and Ennio never skipped a beat answering each in a way that was educational yet fun. Thx!
Aaron HayekGulf Breeze, FL, United States
This was an excellent tour and I'd recommend it to anyone. Getting these two major attractions checked off my list in one day was perfect!
Carol LouieUnited States
The driver (did not introduce himself) was prompt, assisted us with luggage and drove us safely to the tour start point. Ennio, the tour guide met us promptly. He was knowledgeable and provided interesting information. However, we didn't feel he cared about our needs. He walked fast, looked on his phone; seemed for personal reasons and seemed to rush the tour to end early. He never called us by our names and did not check if he met our expectations. We feel this is over priced for what we received.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Goodmorning,i am really sorry if the tour didn’t satisfy your expectations and if you felt uncomfortable anyway there is something that need to be clarified: i have never rushed the tour,you had a few hours in Rome and you wanted to see a lot of things (i told you also in the messages we exchanged before you booked that the tour was packed) and we have seen all the sites. I have been on the phone only with the driver everytime i needed to coordinate for the pick ups in all the sites you wanted to visit.
Karen P.United States
Ennio was a fabulous guide! He is incredibly knowledgeable and respectful, thoroughly explained everything we saw, and was able to maneuver around the crowds like a pro. Our visit to the Vatican was so much more meaningful because of Ennio's expertise.
Mary “Suzy” DiBenedettoBaton Rouge, LOUISIANA, United States
Amazing day ! We had 6 Adults on The Best of Rome tour with Ennio in October 2019 . His tour is fantastic ! All the sites are wonderful of course but he gives great information at each site and throughout the tour ! He makes sure that it's interesting for all ! He is passionate about Rome's history and very easy to understand. It was a fun and wonderful day ! We will definitely tour with him again when we return to Rome ! Thanks Ennio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao! Thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to be your guide in Rome and I really hope to see you again! Thanks a lot! Ciao. Ennio

Ennio was a terrific tour guide. We would highly recommend him for his vast experience, great personality, and a well planned tour.
Jody GrossUnited States
We had a very limited amount of time and Ennio did exactly what I wanted for my family. He moved us through a few different sights quickly yet gave us concise information. He was fantastic! I definitely think I would use him again and recommend him to friends.

Ennio was an excellent guide who had incredible knowledge of all areas is the Vatican, and took the time to describe the most important areas in detail. He spent a lot of time providing the background of the Sistine Chapel ahead of time which made it much more interesting when you visit this overwhelming place. Ennio showed up on time and spent almost 4 hours providing the details behind each location that we visited. I would strongly recommend him and plan to schedule another tour with him in the future
Kevin CiokUnited States
Ennio, thank you so much for a great tour of Rome. It was a ton of fun. Your enthusiasm for history, art, and culture was infectious. We hope to see you again.
Janet H.United States
My husband and I booked the Ancient Rome and Colosseum tour with Ennio. We had been to Rome previously and wandered around both areas on our own. What a difference a guide makes! Especially this one! Ennio was so educated and knowledgeable on Roman history and art and presented it all in such an engaging way - and his English is perfect! If I could give him 10 stars, I definitely would! Thanks Ennio for a wonderful morning.
Candy C.United States
Ennio was fantastic. Right off, he seemed like an old friend. We toured the Forum, Coliseum,Vatican and accommodated our wish to see the Spanish Steps. We loved wizzing through or around lines. Best of all, Ennio has a way of explaining history in such an exciting and fun way that I kept thinking “I wish he had been my teacher when I was in school”! He made sure we knew the historic background of what we were about to see. We hated our day to end and highly recommend Ennio. Arrivederci Ennio!

Victor WoodUnited States
Ennio was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We really enjoyed the one on one tour.
Ennio was fabulous. So knowledgeable and articulate, and able to tailor his approach to three tired and hot teenagers. It was a great experience.
Emily StrangeBrea, CA, United States
Leona YeeUnited States
Ennio was a pleasure to be with on our first visit to Rome. He showed great patience when our group was separated while visiting the Vatican museum.
Marco SantoroUnited States
Ennio is fantastic! I wish we would have booked him for firenze also! He is so knowledgeable and social. I felt like I had a new friend in Italy! We only forgot to get a group picture with him. Outstanding guide!! Caio, Marco!
Dallas C.Whistler, BC, Canada
I wish we could give a 6 star rating. This was the third time Ennio had guided us in Rome. He is an outstanding guide in every way: knowledgable about Rome, passionate about his city, thoughtful for his guests wishes and comfort, fluent in English, and a sense of humour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Dallas! Thanks a lot for your review! It was such a pleasure to be your guide for the third time in Roma! I am sure that Ci vedremo ancora! Grazie e saluti!
Jill AdcockUnited States
Thanks for a wonderful tour of Rome. What a pleasure it was to meet Ennio and have him show us the City that he Loves. He made what could have been a very painful day of waiting in lines a great day filled with history and beautiful sites with little to no lines. Worth every penny we spent. Thank you, Jill and Family
Ennui was fabulous. So knowledgeable. Plus we had a 90 year old with us and he was wonderfully helpful and considerate making it possible for him to see the sights.
Tracey SpencerUnited States
Ennio was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were able to see and learn much in a relatively short amount of time. I would definitely recommend this tour. We enjoyed spending the day with him.
Cliff SinkUnited States
VERY informative, professional tour guide. Wish he could be with us every day on our vacation! Zero complaints.
James StricklerUnited States
Great & very informative. Ennio is personable and enjoyable to be with.
Heather ErlandsonUnited States
This tour was amazing! Ennio was a fantastic guide. His English was perfect and he has such a wealth of knowledge of Roman history. It was such an enjoyable and informative day throughout ancient Rome and the Vatican. We highly recommend this tour and Ennio as a guide for anything!
Parul BlizzardUnited States
Ennio was a fantastic tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Ennio arranged to meet us outside the Vatican Museum and was on time. Despite the large crowds, Ennio had us inside the museum quickly. He was able to walk us through the museum and highlight the most important pieces, while also telling their historical significance. He is a wealth of knowledge and was able to answer any question we gave him. After the museum we toured the Basilica and again Ennio provided great details.
Ennio is a huge source of knowledge and information about the Vatican and history of Rome. He is well prepared and has definitely an ambition for his work. Highly recommended!
Louis RossUnited States
The only reason we are giving Ennio a rating of 5 is because we are not allowed to give him a ten! This man is a Roman history Scholar. During our 7 hour tour of the Colosseum, forum, Palatine hill, and the Vatican, he was a walking and talking encyclopaedia. We are very grateful to have met him and made a new friend in Rome. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao! Thanks a lot for your reviews! It was a pleasure to be your guide in Rome and i really hope to see you again in Rome soon! Enjoy your cruise and thanks a lot again! Ciao. Ennio
Louis RossUnited States
Ennio is friendly and very flexible. It was raining on the day of this tour and he let us change it in order to accommodate the weather. Instead of outdoor sightseeing, we did the catacombs in the Pantheon.
Andrew HamptonUnited States
Ennio was the best possible guide we could have had for the Vatican. He is proud of his heritage and enjoys sharing it with his clients. His extensive education is evident as he shares his love of Roman history in a way that brings it to life as if he were telling a treasured family story. He makes you "feel" the history rather than just hear it. If you want to experience Rome at it's best, book with Ennio! Andy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Andy,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you in Rome and i really hope to see you again soon! Thanks. Ciao. Ennio

Esther StoelUnited States
On Saturday, Ennio was our guide for the whole day and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We were so pleased with the whole experience. And we have fallen in love with your beautiful city. Give Ennio the highest rating available!
Amy BrennerUnited States
Ennio was an amazing tour guide! He took our family of 5 (three teens) through an incredible journey of the Vatican, that would have been overwhelming without him. His charm kept us all entertained for the time with him, and his insights and teachings will stay with us forever! He was very professional and prompt, answered every question with his impressive depth of knowledge, and made sure we saw everything that was important. Teenagers loved him as much as we did!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Amy,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you and your family in Rome. Say bye to the kids and I really hope to see you again in Rome! Thanks. Ciao. Ennio
Cindy KrauseUnited States
Ennio is a superb tour guide! Very knowledgeable, personable, and easy going! He answered all our questions and included history so it made what we were seeing more pertinent. Looking forward to our second tour in a few days with him!!
A must see if you're in Rome, and make sure you have an expert guide like Ennio! To fully enjoy the experience of the smallest country in the world with an incredible history, you need a guide. I've been here before but I saw this place in such sublime detail because of the knowledge of Ennio. Thank you! x
I wish I could give this a higher star rating! Perhaps I should offer a caveat here. Rome IS my favourite city in Europe and ancient Roman history is my thing! However, having an expert guide in Ennio share his historical expertise blew my mind. And despite it being freezing cold and raining (curse those cheap-o umbrella's that don't work from the get-go, although they work well with a 6 yo to live out her ambition to be Mary Poppins when bored), this was our favourite day in Rome. A must! Thanks, Ennio x
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Jannifer,thanks a lot for your reviews!!! I know it’s super hot in Sidney,i have seen on the news! Yes,i’ve been skiing with my daughter but just a couple of days nearby Rome because then she had a flu again and so we need to wait a fee days more. It was a pleasure to guide you and your family in Rome and i really hope to see you again soon! Thanks a lot and enjoy Summer! Ciao. Ennio
James MichaelisOrem, UT, United States
Ennio was terrific. He was there on time and we had a wonderful time with him. He is very knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to. He had all the areas planned out and the tickets purchased which made a very smooth experience. It was well worth the time and money to have Ennio as our tour guide. He was great and we would recommend him to anyone. We would use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao James,thanks a lot for your great review! It was a pleasure to be your guide in Rome and i really hope to see you again soon! Thanks. Ciao. Ennio
Allison GordonUnited States
An amazing tour of the Vatican - Ennio kept it extremely interesting for everyone in our family and was so knowledgeable. We loved it
Everett DyerUnited States
We visited with adult children/grandchildren and took a tour for 8 into the Coliseum, Forum, Pallatin Hill and Vatican Museum. This was our 2nd time with Ennio. He is an extraordinary guide, filled with knowledge of Rome now and years ago which he shares through a fantastic command of the English language. We learned so much more than we would have doing it on our own or with an audio guide. Having a guide helped us avoid the hundreds of people in line everywhere and that was a priceless!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Everett! Thanks a lot for your fantastic review. It was a pleasure to guide you in Rome for the second time and as we say in italian: there’s no 2 without 3 so i am sure i’ll see you again! Thanks a lot. Ciao. Ennio
Lori PeljovichUnited States
Ennio was amazing! He kept 3 older teenagers and their parents engrossed in Roman and Vatican history for an entire day. He was super knowledgeable and had lots of insider tips and cool stories that we all loved hearing. Highly recommend Ennio for this tour. Be sure to ask him about the "body parts" at the Vatican!
Miguel BolioUnited States
I highly recommend this tour guide. Suggest that you book Ennio early, so you don't miss out on a fabulous private tour of the important sites in Rome, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum Ruins, and the Vatican. Ennio explains historical facts about Roman history and how Rome developed as a City. He speaks English very well for those of us that unfortunately don't speak Italian. He met us promptly on time. Allowing us to Skip long lines at Colosseum and Vatican was fantastic!
Thanks Ennio My 19 year old son ranked your tour as the highlight of our 18 day trip. You were awesome at keeping everyone engaged. I watched other tours and was so grateful we were on your tour. You had the experience to get us everywhere without line-ups and even pulled off a visit to the dome at St Peters when the opportunity arose unexpectedly at the end of the day. Your sense of humor and practical information on the how and why things happened was great. You put some humanity in the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie!!! It’ been a pleasure to be your guide and to share with you something about Italy! I am really happy that you loved my tour a d i really wish to see you again in the future! Let’s keep in touch and take care! Thanks and happy new year! Ciao. Ennio

Excellent- really accessible and enjoyable tour. Very professional and fluent English Thanks Ennio for a great tour!
Sara JonesUnited States
Ennio arrived promptly, spoke great English, was detailed about where we were going and what we were doing, and was super patient when our 10 year old started to lose attention. The adults and older kids were engaged the entire 3.5 hours. I couldn't get enough of the stories. He knew the answer to every random question we asked and was great about presenting the stories by reiterating the time period and context. He was raised in Rome and has a deep knowledge about all things Rome.

Jennifer FelixUnited States
Ennio was a fantastic guide! We met at the exact location that he recommended and was on time. He was very professional and yet at the same time, very personable. He gave us a wealth of information regarding the history of Rome as we toured the the Vatican and such. I would definitely recommend Ennio as a tour guide Jennifer
I had a great time with Ennio. He is an experienced guide, and you will get to know or revisit all of Rome's highlights with great explanations, both historic and mythical. Fully recommend him.

Again, Ennio most knowledgeable and gracious.

Lori DewetterEl Paso, TX, United States
Having spent the morning with Ennio touring the Vatican we knew it would be a great afternoon touring ancient Rome with him. We learned so much as he took us through the Coliseum, Palatine Hill, and the Forum and we have a much better understanding of Roman history. Great tour with Ennio
