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!!!!!!!!!
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.

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!!

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.

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
Stephen PattonUnited States
Ennio was AWESOME. Incredibly knowledgable and interesting and authoritative. Had him for both the Coliseum and Vatican tours. Would definitely recommend him.
Larry WhiteUnited States
Ennio was great! He was very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. He got us through a particularly crowded entry situation at the Colosseum nicely. He taylored his talk to our knowledge level and his presentation was conversational (never seemed to be a "canned" speech). We recommend him highly.
Janet BrownUnited States
Excellent commentary, itinerary, vibe and fun! We'd visited before and are pretty knowledgeable but still gained interesting new understanding. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Janet,thanks a lot for your review! It was really a pleasure to guide you and your friends in Rome! I really hope to see you again soon in Rome! Thanks! Ciao. Ennio
Jimmy GlennUnited States
Ennio was great to deal with. We toured with him on two different days and found him to be knowledgeable, flexible and very pleasant to be with. We had his cell number but it was not necessary because he was punctual and the meeting spots were easy to find. He has a vast knowledge of the history of Rome on many different levels so the tour was informative and very interesting. I recommend him highly. Definite five star experience.
Irene FaynUnited States
We booked 2 tours with Ennio - 4-hr "Ancient Rome and Colosseum" and next day 4-hr "Vatican, skip the line" tour. We travelled as a family of five including two children ages 13 and 10 and their grandma. Ennio made the experience highly enjoyable for everyone. His knowledge is beyond what anyone can expect from a tour guide and his presentation and English language skills are superb. Ennio also helped us book soccer tickets while we were in Rome and was helpful with a multitude of other arrangements.
Thanks to Ennio for a great experience! We are a family of three that travelled to Rome for our first time. Ennio met us in the lobby of our hotel as planned and after a short trip by local taxi we were on an awesome tour of the sights that Rome has to offer. Ennio has a vast knowledge of both past and present Rome and had no issues keeping all of us engaged. He arranged tickets for us to the Colosseum and aptly navigated the large queue and we were inside within minutes. Highly recommend Ennio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Richard,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you and your family in Rome and I really hope to see you again soon! Thanks a lot. Ciao. Ennio

Fabulous guide and a great tour of the Colosseum. Ennio was very educated on all the sites and provided some excellent stories and information about this historic city. I would highly recommend a tour with him

Deborah W.Bethesda, MARYLAND, United States
Ennio guided our 4 person group on this wonderful tour of Ancient Rome and the Colosseum! His attention to detail, knowledge, no waiting in line:) and a great personality all combine for a 5 star experience! Ennio studies his work and gives a wonderful 4 hour experience! You will find out things that were not in your history books. This was definitely one of our Rome highlights. We also took the Vatican Tour with Ennio and recommend that one too! Enjoy your tours with Ennio!
David CohenPlattsburgh, NY, United States
Ennio was an excellent guide, and very accommodating. His English was excellent and he had an amazing depth of knowledge. We had requested adding the Baths of Caracalla to our itinerary, and he very graciously accommodated us. We would definitely recommend him in the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao David,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you in Roma and i really hope to see you again soon! Thanks Ciao Ennio
Julene MayUnited States
I would give him a perfect 5+ out of 5. His knowledge was exceptional of all the topics we asked questions on. He made each tour personal, interactive and fun. We have gone on many tours, but the two days we spent with Ennio in Rome was by far, the most informative, rewarding, fun tour. I would highly recommend Ennio
Devon TessmerUnited States
Ennio was a delight! He is so knowledgeable of all things Rome and a great story teller as well. He really helped to make our trip to Rome both memorable and educational. Thank Ennio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Devon,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
Pablo ChapaUnited States
Ennio was extremely knowledgeable and spoke English perfectly. He was very kind and patient with our kids questions. I would recommend him to anyone with kids. Ennio would never give us a silent moment and always took an opportunity to explain something else. One of the best guides I've had around the world.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Pablo! Thanks a lot for the review! I am sure i'll see you and your wonderful family again in Roma! Let's keep in touch! Thanks Ciao Ennio
Michael PoUnited States
Ennio is top notch as far as my family is concerned. I spend a lot of time in other countries and have seen many of the world's great treasures but I have always believed that you get the most out of it when you take an expert along for the trip. Ennio is an encyclopedia of knowledgeable, very articulate, well spoken and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed his tour and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to the most out of their experience. 5 starts in my book!
Ruth ThompsonNiles, OH, United States
Ennio was fabulous and brilliant! His breadth of knowledge was astounding and he swept us up into the world of Ancient Rome---one of my true passions! With him, Rome was brought to life and put into a perspective we as modern people could understand and relate to. He described the lives of gladiators, senators, emperors and plebians with honest passion. I would only tour Rome again with Ennio! To have anyone else would be too much of a let-down!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ruth,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to guide you in Roma. It's fantastic to guide someone so interested in Rome history like you! Really hope to see you again soon in Roma! Thanks a lot. Ciao Ennio
Lorena AgudeloUnited States
Ennio was great, very thorough, patient. He took the time to explain to everyone at our party everything and really kept the kids engaged- Kids ranging from 10-13 years old.
Penny VillellaOcala, FL, United States
!What a great day we had in Rome with Ennio! We have been on several tours with other companies but taking a city tour with Ennio and ToursbyLocals was hands down the highlight of our trip. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative, patient and kind. He anticipated our needs and wishes before we would even ask for them. If you don't book him, you are truly missing the best guide Rome has to offer! We can't wait to return to return to Rome and we will definitely tour with Ennio again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Penny,thanks a lot! It was a real pleasure to guide the 4 of you in Roma and i really hope to see you again soon! Thanks a lot. Ciao Ennio
Christine SullivanUnited Kingdom
We were with friends today on a tour of Ancient Rome conducted by Ennio. The tour was 5 star in all respects. We are very much looking forward to touring with him again over the next couple of days.
Fal ModiUnited States
Ennio was amazing. He had a wealth of knowledge that he shared with us. He was very patient and energetic. We truly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend him. It was great having a local there to guide us and we loved that the tour was private and not with a large group. Definitely more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao! Thanks a lot. It was a pleasure to guide you in Roma. Really hope to see you again! Thanks a lot. Ciao Ennio
Christina RaoUnited States
From the start, when planning this customized tour both to see some less-traveled sites and to accomodate one with slower mobility, Ennio was enthusiastic, easy to work with, creative in planning. In the end it was just two of us on the tour, and Ennio helped switch the plans. On the tour, he was the best - with background in art history and 15 years as a guide, he spoke unscripted and energetically, integrating and enlivening the history and religion and architecture of all the sites. Thank you Ennio!
Diane MasentenUnited States
Ennio is an excellent tour guide! He ordered a taxi to take us all to the Colosseum to save some walking. We spent a couple of hours there, then visited other sites in the area----a morning tour. Our son wished he had spent less time at the Colosseum and more time at Palatine Hill, the Forum and Capitol Hill. Ennio recommended a restaurant in the area for lunch. He was extremely interesting and knowledgable!
