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

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
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.

Ennio led us on a fun and enjoyable day. He took us to a great local restaurant for Pizza at lunch. He was laid back and great to be around. He led our group at a very enjoyable pace and was extremely informative. We had great conversation and had a great day in Rome seeing the highlights with him.

We highly recommend this tour with Ennio. We saw all of the important sites in Rome during our 7 hour tour. He has a wealth of knowledge and shared so many details with us about the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Forum, Capitol Hill, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. He even took us to a great place for lunch! Ennio was a super tour guide for my husband, our twelve-year-old granddaughter and me.
David KircherUnited States
Very accommodating very nice lunch at his suggestion
David SteinbergUnited States
Ennio was wonderful. He is very knowledgeable about the art, architecture, and history of Rome. It's like having a professor with you at all times. There were literally no questions he didn't know the answer to. Moreover, he was prompt and arranged everything and found a great restaurant for us. This was the perfect tour with the perfect guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao David and Keetgi,thanks a lot for your review! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you today. For sure i’ll let you know when i’ll come to LA! David,the american movie i’ve seen this year that I didn’t remember today was “Three billboards outside Ebbing”. Hope to see you again soon! Thanks. Ciao. Ennio
Morgan D.United States
Ennio did a great job of explaining the background history of the sites and pointing out interesting things that we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. He was very accommodating when the weather was bad and we were able to reschedule for another afternoon which we really appreciated. We will definitely go on another tour with Ennio when we're back in Rome.

Ennio is a great guide! I have used private guides all over the world, and he was one of the best. I would highly recommend him, if you are in Rome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao John,thanks a lot for your review! Really hope to see you again and to work with you soon! Thanks Ciao Ennio
Judy StocktonHouston, TX, United States
Ennio was the perfect guide to show us Ancient Rome. My grandkids summed it by saying "The tour was not too short and not too long but just right. And he knows where to get the best pizza. ". It isn't easy pleasing a 5, 8, and 10 year old. And the adults loved it as well. Well done.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao! Thanks a lot for your review! Really hope to see you and your wonderful family again in Roma! Have a great time in Italy! Thanks. Ciao Ennio
Randy HewittUnited States
Ennio is a master of his profession. His knowledge of history is nearly inexhaustible, he captivates you with behind-the-scene stories, and he has a professional respect and working relationship with other guides and local staff. We enjoyed our time together very much and we enjoyed our time in Rome much more than if we'd have gone solo.
Nick LatterUnited Kingdom
Great guide and tour. Very informative and knowledgeable of the area. Would book Ennio again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Nick,thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to guide you and your wonderful family in Roma. Really hope to see you again! Ciao Ennio
ToursByLocals delivered once again. We had a very enjoyable and informative tour of Rome with our guide Ennio. He knows his city very well and it was a delight to spend 7 hours in his company. We highly recommend him and we will not hesitate to retain his services once again on a future visit to Rome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Michel,thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to guide you in Roma! Really hope to see you again! Ciao Ennio
Donna SullivanUnited States
You are a fool if you don't pick this guide he was absoluty amazing we had a big group and he handled us with ease. He was full of knowledge and was entertaining. We had young to old and he was so wonderful too all. We used another guide for another city and he was hands down the best. Thank you Ennio for everything.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Donna,thanks a lot! It was a pleasure to guide you and your group in Roma! Really hope to see you again! Thanks a lot! Ciao Ennio
Gary OlsonUnited States
We spent 7 hours in Rome with Ennio and he did a wonderful job helping us explore Rome. We would highly recommend him to all travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Gary,thanks a lot. It was a pleasure to be your guide in Roma. Really hope to see you again! Ciao Ennio
A true professional with great insight and in-depth knowledge. 7-hour Rome tour was too short with him. I wish I could have him for our Vatican tour as well, but he was fully booked. Thank you, Ennio.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Brian,thanks a lot. I hope to see you in Roma again. Ennio
Robert DaviauUnited States

Again Ennio did a great job showing us the popular places of Rome. He would take pictures when requested. He even had great suggestions for Lunch and Dinner. We had a great time on our tour. I would highly recommend Ennio to anyone if they are doing the same tour. If I come to Rome again I will definitely have Ennio be my tour guide if he doesn't mind! :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Andrea,thanks a lot. It was a pleasure to guide you in Roma and for sure i'll be your guide again whenever you come back! Thanks a lot. Ciao Ennio

Emiliano was a wealth of knowledge and the kids also really loved him, which helped in being able to cover a good amount of ground even with little ones.

Steven FranklinUnited States
From start to finish Ennio was a great guide. He was right on time, right where he said he'd be, and gave us an overview of our day which was a great history lesson in itself. He was courteous, always giving time to take photos, and slowed down for my wife who likes to read the signs along the route. He suggested a great spot for lunch, and for afternoon gelato. He even entertained my questions about WWI, WWII, and modern Italian politics. Ennio was everything you could want from a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Steven,thanks a lot! It's been a pleasure to guide you and your beatiful family in Rome! I really hope to see you again in Italy. Ciao Ennio
Elaine O.United Kingdom
The Highlights of Rome tour is a must for anyone visiting Rome, particularly for the first time. There is so much to see and learn from a local expert; we were lucky enough to have Ennio as our guide. He was very engaging and it was a real pleasure to spend the day with him. His expert knowledge and enthusiasm meant that we could fully appreciate the wonder of ancient Rome. He took us to the Jewish area for lunch - fantastic. An amazing day we'll never forget! Thank You!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Elaine,thanks a lot! It's been a pleasure to be your guide in Roma. Really hope to see you again. Ciao. Ennio
Dallas C.Whistler, BC, Canada
Ennio was absolutely great. We were a group of six and booked him for a one day tour of Rome. We arrived by train from Florence. He met us at the station and looked after us from there. He had the day very well organized and had personally purchased the necessary reservation tickets. We found him extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Roman history. His explanations were thorough and entertaining helped by visuals using his iPad. He was very pleasant and we would strongly recommend his services
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Dallas,it's been a pleasure to guide you and your wonderful group in Roma! Really hope to see you again. Thanks a lot. Ciao. Ennio
Jeffrey DodgeUnited States
Ennio gave us an outstanding tour of Rome. He is extremely knowledgable about the history, culture, and architecture and conveyed numerous facts and examples that made our touring experience very enjoyable as well as a great learning experience. We will be recommending Ennio to our friends and family when they travel to Italy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Jeffrey, thanks a lot. It's been a pleasure to guide you and your party in Rome. I really hope to see you again. Thanks Ciao Ennio
Russell GalewskiUnited States
Ennio's knowledge of ancient Rome and the way he brought that information to us gave a life to all of "those" bits of information that were first shared with us many, many years ago during our History classes. As we walked over the streets of old Rome Ennio was expert in the manner in which he explained how all of these pieces fit together. The only arch constructed in honor of a dead person. The place where Caesar was cremated. We covered much ground but this tour was first rate and Ennio is the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao,Russell. Thanks a lot. It's been a pleasure to guide you in Rome. I really hope to see you again in Roma! Ciao. Ennio
