I've used Tours by Locals on many occasions and can state, unequivocally, that Mauro provided the best overall experience for me. His knowledge is immense and his energy level unwavering. I was amazed by his breadth- history, culture, geography, language...there was not one question he could not answer nor expand on. You can't go wrong with Mauro!
