A Recent Review of this tour

Sergio was waiting patiently for us to arrive. We arrived by ship and were delayed by a long wait for a shuttle to the port terminal. He tried to contact us since we were late, but I had no local connection. Once we connected, he did a great job driving and guiding us through Ostia Antica, then offering to take us to a nearby coastal restaurant for lunch. We were pleased with the service he provided and with Tours by Locals. We will definitely look into booking a guide for future travels.
