A Recent Review of this tour

Manuela is amazing! Her love of her job and sharing the history of the sights we saw was so evident in her enthusiasm. She drew us in to such an adventure by her knowledge. 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!
