Carlos FigueroaUnited States
She was exceptional. The Vatican was overwhelming and she guided me through it in a thoughtful and methodical way, all while pointing out things I never would have known in my own. Well worth it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Carlos. I look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Jeff GetzUnited States
The tour of the Vatican was fantastic ... having the "inside" story really helped to bring to life what we were observing. We were so glad to have Roberta to educate us... and her personality was perfect for this tour ... very laid back, just taking a stroll through the Vatican, telling the story ... and avoiding the massive crowds where she could. We really enjoyed her company and highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Jeff, I enjoyed sharing all of my knowledge with you and it was wonderful to meet you. Please return to Rome soon. Grazie!
Marjorie PierceUnited States
Roberta was excellent. She was very responsive to our interests and extremely knowledgeable. We got more out of the tour than we could have imagined! She and the Vatican tour she gave were highlights of the trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review of our day together. I so enjoyed meeting all of you and look forward to your return. Grazie tanto!!! Happy Holidays.
Richard GaynorUnited States
I am a history buff and found Roberta to be extremely knowledgeable about everything within the tour. Her English is very good and her personality very upbeat. We very much enjoyed the tour under her guidance.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Richard for your thoughtful review. I so enjoyed meeting you and it was my pleasure to share all of my knowledge about the Vatican and historical facts throughout our tour. I look forward to your return to Italy, as you have much more to explore. Grazie

Franco MontanoUnited States
This tour was great I'm so glad we were able to get in early. Roberta also did an amazing job in avoiding all the big lines and trust me they get really long. Roberta was very knowledgeable and got us through the main highlights before things got real busy. We didn't feel rushed since she allocated the perfect amount of time to really enjoy the main highlights. If you want to see the Vatican book this tour with Roberta trust me it's worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear Franco! This was such a blessed review and I so enjoyed meeting your family. Please stay in touch and come back.
Diana HendersonUnited States
We selected the Breakfast tour, as we had time constraints, and also limited attention with two children 11&12. It was great to move to the front of the lines at a very busy time of the year. Roberta gave good explanations and answered the children's questions. The breakfast was nicely done, sufficient and efficient.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great! I’m so happy that you were pleased with our tour and It was a pleasure meeting your family. I look forward to your return. Grazie
Sharon FanelliUnited States

William T.United States
Roberta's knowledge of the Vatican was amazing. She is a very sweet, kind person, that is very passionate about this tour. She answered all our questions and helped understand many special things throughout the Vatican galleries that then tied into Michelangelo's works in the Sistine Chapel. Very enlightening. Being able to bypass long lines and to have a personal guide was incredible and well worth it. The Vatican is a very special tour that should not be missed and Roberta made it even more special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Tanto Ted! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my tour and look forward to your return to Rome.
Janis VicknairUnited States
Beautiful Vatican tour. Roberta was so informative. She prepared us for what we were to see prior to the actual tour. Her knowledge of the Sistine Chapel and the Bascilica was outstanding. Loved that it was a private tour. Worth every penny. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Janis! I really enjoyed showing you, a teacher for so many years all of the wonders of my world and Vatican City. You were both so nice and lovely with me and I wish you a fantastic cruise and safe journey.

Ricardo DalmasUnited States
the date available when we booked turned out to be a holiday so we had to reschedule with a different guide. Also we did not have early access (Sistine chapel was overcrowded) and breakfast was just OK. This tour is HIGHLY over priced.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry you felt this way. That morning you entered into the Museum's with the early breakfast VIP tickets at 7:45am as purchased in your tour, which is the early entrance that was respected. The Sistine Chapel opened to you at 8am which is an hour before the general public. My apologies.
Scott GochnauerUnited States
Roberta did a great job. Very knowledgeable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Scott, it was my pleasure.

Chris WilliPhoenix, AZ, United States
I wrote a two page essay about our experiences with Roberta (and Mauro) only to see that the maximum length of review is only 510 characters... so let me condense it. When I first contacted Roberta she responded promptly and then she stayed up until 4am (Italy time) getting everything just right, and then when we met a month later she was even more than we expected. She was warm, beautiful , sweet, intelligent and informed, open and caring. Grazie Mille Roberta-We will cherish our two days together!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chris for such a wonderful review. Mauro and I both enjoyed taking great care of you during your visit to Rome. We look forward to your return!!! It was really a gift for us to have been chosen by you for your time in Rome. Grazie Millie!!!
