Roberta was great. She is not only incredibly qualified but her ability to communicate her knowledge is wonderful. We had a delightful day and hope to be able to return to Rome some day to spend more time with Roberta as one day was only the tip of what is there.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Michael, it would be my pleasure to meet you again in my Eternal city. Grazie, Roberta

Date: Jun 23/18

We selected the Breakfast tour, as we had time constraints, and also limited attention with two children 11&12. It was great to move to the front of the lines at a very busy time of the year. Roberta gave good explanations and answered the children's questions. The breakfast was nicely done, sufficient and efficient.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great! I’m so happy that you were pleased with our tour and It was a pleasure meeting your family. I look forward to your return. Grazie

Roberta is a fantastic tour guide! She was easy to talk to, understanding with our time constraints and able to fit in a request to go to an additional site. Roberta is an expert on the Vatican City, she answered all of our questions, schooled us on a lot of info we didn't know, and was able to get us through the lines in minutes instead of hours like everyone else! I can't recommend booking a private tour with Roberta enough!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kelly: Thank you very much for your wonderful testimony to our day together. I also enjoyed your company and look forward to your return. Grazie Roberta

Roberta's knowledge of the Vatican was amazing. She is a very sweet, kind person, that is very passionate about this tour. She answered all our questions and helped understand many special things throughout the Vatican galleries that then tied into Michelangelo's works in the Sistine Chapel. Very enlightening. Being able to bypass long lines and to have a personal guide was incredible and well worth it. The Vatican is a very special tour that should not be missed and Roberta made it even more special.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Tanto Ted! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my tour and look forward to your return to Rome.

Beautiful Vatican tour. Roberta was so informative. She prepared us for what we were to see prior to the actual tour. Her knowledge of the Sistine Chapel and the Bascilica was outstanding. Loved that it was a private tour. Worth every penny. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Janis! I really enjoyed showing you, a teacher for so many years all of the wonders of my world and Vatican City. You were both so nice and lovely with me and I wish you a fantastic cruise and safe journey.

Tour: Viterbo, the "City of the Popes", Viterbo, Lazio, Italy
Date: Sep 5/17

Roberta was very flexible to adjust so we did not revisit some of the things I saw on an earlier tour in Viterbo. Her suggestions were very appropriate, interesting, and beautiful. She has a wealth of knowledge of the area and a passion for its history and culture that came through as she guided me along. The result was an intriguing day during which I gained an appreciation of the history and unique culture of Viterbo and its surroundings.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Mr. Howell for your kind words and I'm so pleased that we could get in as much as we could of the new and exciting places in Viterbo. I look forward to meeting you again in Italy.

Roberta was very enthusiastic and accommodating. She was able to come up with a suitable agenda on the fly for our family of five with 3 kids under 13. We asked to see sites with few other people around. We visited St. sebastien catacombs, walked on the Appian way and saw a magnificent surviving segment of the aqueducts as well as several other sites along the way

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stacey! It was such a pleasure showing your family the best off the beaten track places in Rome. I look forward to showing you more next time. Grazie

Tour: #296938, VIP Vatican Breakfast Tour, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Jul 1/17

the date available when we booked turned out to be a holiday so we had to reschedule with a different guide. Also we did not have early access (Sistine chapel was overcrowded) and breakfast was just OK. This tour is HIGHLY over priced.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm sorry you felt this way. That morning you entered into the Museum's with the early breakfast VIP tickets at 7:45am as purchased in your tour, which is the early entrance that was respected. The Sistine Chapel opened to you at 8am which is an hour before the general public. My apologies.

This is definitely the highlight of our stay in Rome. My son had a wonderful time making pizza,receiving the gladiator training and of course the ice cream.

I booked a last minute tour with Roberta when plans with a family member fell through. She responded promptly to my inquiry with her availability and set up a very memorable day trip to Florence from Rome that allowed me to accomplish much more than I could have on my own. Roberta's deep local knowledge and relaxed, warm personality combined to create an enjoyable and enriching experience. I look forward to rebooking another tour in future:

I wrote a two page essay about our experiences with Roberta (and Mauro) only to see that the maximum length of review is only 510 characters... so let me condense it. When I first contacted Roberta she responded promptly and then she stayed up until 4am (Italy time) getting everything just right, and then when we met a month later she was even more than we expected. She was warm, beautiful , sweet, intelligent and informed, open and caring. Grazie Mille Roberta-We will cherish our two days together!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Chris for such a wonderful review. Mauro and I both enjoyed taking great care of you during your visit to Rome. We look forward to your return!!! It was really a gift for us to have been chosen by you for your time in Rome. Grazie Millie!!!
