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.

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.

Manuela was awesome. Out of 5 stars we give her a 6!! She was personable, extremely knowledgeable and able to convey the history of Rome, as a storyteller, and not just a historian. We would highly recommend her as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille again for taking the time to leave a review and promote my personal tours. A presto in Roma.

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Rome and thank you for your special words. Grazie

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

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you it was a pleasure for me to make you expirience Ancient Rome in the best of ways. Grazie mille

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

My daughter and I booked Manuela for three tours, Colosseum, Vatican and City. All three were AMAZING. Manuela is knowledgable, friendly, fun -- and a STORYTELLER! We loved, loved, loved her. She brought "visual aids" - her iPad, overlay books, 3-D glasses, etc., all of which brought the ruins in front of us to life. She was also very organized, responsive to email, and even sent us photos of our meeting locations to show the taxi drivers. Highly, highly recommend her. You will not be disappointed

My family took a three hour walking tour of Ancient Rome with Manuela on New Year's Eve. The family included three teenagers ....so a tough crowd to work with! I could not recommend her tour highly enough. She was very enthusiastic, spoke perfect English and pitched the tour at exactly the right level. My wife and I had been to Rome many times, but never before had received such a clear, interesting and informative guide to Ancient Rome. Certainly five stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am more than happy you all enjoyed the time together as much as I did. Thank you for choosing me as your guide in Rome, hope to see you again some time. Grazie mille. Manuela

The morning we spent with Manuela was the highlight of our visit to Rome. She's delightful company and so knowledgeable. We had children aged 4, 8 and 12 with us —Manuela was great with them, keeping them fully engaged. You can't possibly have a better tour of the Coliseum, Forum and Palatine!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille for your kind words. It was a great pleasure meeting you.

This was the first of two tours we took with Manuela. She organised our tickets, and took us through a special entrance away from the crowds. She was very knowledgeable and engaging, with lots of entertaining anecdotes and additional materials on her tablet to show to my daughter. She flexed the itinerary to match our specific interests, and gave us a thoroughly enjoyable tour. I would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille. Such great feedback, from the mother of a 15 year old lovely girl, on an historical Ancient Rome and Vatican tour is highly rewarding. Glad to know you had a great time. Hope to see you on Rome with the rest of the family. Best. Manuela

We had the most wonderful morning with Manuela on her Colosseum Ancient Rome Tour. She was able to find special tickets for us that allowed us to stand on the Arena level which was really amazing. She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastically shared with us her love of Roma. We highly recommend Manuela. Thank you for the special time you shared with us, Manuela.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille for this positive feedback. Very rewarding for me to know you had a great time. Hope to see you again in Rome for more adventures. Best. Manuela

Every question we had was met with such a joy and willingness to share her knowledge. It was hard to say goodbye to her at the end of the tour. I would highly recommend her to everyone looking for the perfect tour and perfect day in Rome. Thank you Manuela from us all!

Manuela was wonderful. We wanted a tour only of the Colosseum and she organised tickets to enter through the arena door. We had 4 children and she kept them engaged with interesting facts for 1.5 hours. We will highly recommend her and hope to do a tour with her again when we are back in Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catalina. I will be here if you want to discover more of my wonderful Roma. Grazie
