A Recent Review of this tour

A perfect day in Rome! Sergio was, indeed, our "Local Expert." Picking us up at the port, he then allowed us to drop our bags at our hotel and then guided us through a lovely and relaxing visit to the out of the way sights we wished to see. Having been to Rome many times, getting to see Castelgrandolfo, a catacomb, the old Appian Way and the Aqueduct Park were a real treat. Lunch in a quaint local restaurant was also perfect. We highly recommend Sergio when in Rome. Jim and Caroline Murphy, CO, USA
