What an awesomeness tour! Ennio was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and helpful. He was especially great at keeping our 9 year old son engaged in our tours with extra background information and stories. We met some tourists who'd been to the Vatican on the same day and hated it due to the overwhelming crowds. Thanks to Ennio, we didn't even notice. This was the best day of our entire Italy trip!

This was a great tour with Ennio! We enjoyed our visit to the Vatican and especially to the Sistine Chapel. At the beginning of our tour, Ennio shared details on his iPad with us about the sculptures and paintings that we were going to see. We understood the history and background so much better. We highly recommend this tour!

Ennio was a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide, bringing his attention to details to everything. His communication and people skills are excellent, and he has some very creative ways in helping children learn about history! (We brought our 8 years old daughter along for the Vatican tour!) Ennio is not only very experienced, but also a very perceptive tour guide. I highly recommend him!

Ennio was AWESOME. Incredibly knowledgable and interesting and authoritative. Had him for both the Coliseum and Vatican tours. Would definitely recommend him. Was also proactive and helpful. The Vatican changed their schedule a couple of days before and he reached out and helped us find a better time due to the change.

The four hours flew by and we now have a much better understanding of the history and the politics and the faith that created the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basillica. You can't do better.

Ennio was great to deal with. We toured with him on two different days and found him to be knowledgeable, flexible and very pleasant to be with. We had his cell number but it was not necessary because he was punctual and the meeting spots were easy to find. He has a vast knowledge of the history of Rome on many different levels so the tour was informative and very interesting. I recommend him highly. Definite five star experience.

We booked 2 tours with Ennio - 4-hr "Ancient Rome and Colosseum" and next day 4-hr "Vatican, skip the line" tour. We travelled as a family of five including two children ages 13 and 10 and their grandma. Ennio made the experience highly enjoyable for everyone. His knowledge is beyond what anyone can expect from a tour guide and his presentation and English language skills are superb. Ennio also helped us book soccer tickets while we were in Rome and was helpful with a multitude of other arrangements.

We were a 4 person, 2 couple group that took the tour of the Vatican for our Anniversary celebration in style! Ennio made our Vatican tour a special one! His attention to detail, no waiting in line and a wonderful narrative (he studies the vatican in his off time!) were incredible to us. He is also a really nice Italian 'down to earth guy'! So- take the two together and you have a 5 star experience! My group from Washington, DC actually asked if I interviewed him before the tour- he was that great!

Skipping the lines is critical-if we didn't have Ennio to handle this in advance for us, I know I wouldn't have had the patience to wait in the hours long line. Ennio explained the Sistine Chapel in a way that brought the relationship between Michelangelo and Pope Julius to life. He talked to us in advance about what we would see, and knowing what to look for helped us to appreciate the magnificent art in spite of the crowds.

He took the time before we went in, to give us heads up of what to look for and gave us the history of everything we were about to see.

Ennio is a wonderful guide. He is very personable and his tour is very informative and detailed.This was our first trip to Rome and it was enhanced very much by taking Ennio's tour. The Vatican property and it's history is pretty overwhelming. Especially for your average American non-Catholic family. Ennio was good at explaining it all and answering our questions. It was very crowded in the middle of June and being able to bypass the crazy lines made the tour even better!. Call for Ennio today!

Previous comments for Ennio were all excellent and we can only add another glowing testimony. We were 20mins late but we were given the full 4 hour tour and a bit extra too. He was really patient and happy to answer all our (mainly mine!) questions and was able to add those little quirky asides that made the tour so informative. We all agreed that his friendly and personal touches made for a memorable experience and we certainly noticed the added-value when we did the Forum etc on Sunday alone. FABULOUS!

Ennio was our guide for two tours (Vatican skip the line and Ancient Rome and The Colosseum). I wasn't sure how our kids (11 and 13 yrs old) would hold up for 2 four hour tours but they did great and that is a testament to what a great job Ennio did. The time literally flew by. My husband and I have been to Rome several times in the past and seen the sights but we never got as much out of it as we did this time. Thanks again!

This was the 2nd time we used Ennio. He's the best! He prepped the group for what we were about to see, which enabled us to view everything with an educated eye (especially Michelangelo's work in the Sistine Chapel). He blended so well with the family, helped with my 89 year old mother. Ennio clearly takes a lot of pride in his work. He knows it all, communicates it well, and is always so interesting. We wish we could have stayed longer in Rome and engaged Ennio on other tours. We were very pleased!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ray,thanks a lot again! I really hope to see you and your fantastic family again in Roma! Ciao. Ennio

Visited the Vatican a few years ago but didn't have a tour guide. This time wanted to maximise the experience and having our tour guide Ennio made all the difference. What we learned, what we saw and the speed with which we were able to see it (avoiding queues) was amazing. We'd highly recommend having a tour guide (there were only four of us in our party so it was a very intimate experience). Ennio's knowledge of art history and his love of Michelo Angelo the sculptor was infectious. Thank You!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Elaine,thanks a lot again! Hope to see you again in Roma. Ciao Ennio

Another outstanding tour with Ennio. The Vatican is rich with tradition and ceremony. Ennio provided great insights into the history of the Catholic Church and how it evolved over the centuries. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Ennio and will be recommending him to our friends and family when they travel to Italy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cioa Jeffrey,thanks a lot again. I really hope to see you again in Italy Thanks Ciao Ennio

Ennio was very knowledgeable and clear in his explanations. Ennio, was very punctual and polite. This tour is suitable for kids above 8 yrs old because it involves a lot of walking. Overall, the tour was very interesting and full of information.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Jackson,thanks a lot. Really hope to see you and your family in Rome again. Ciao. Ennio

This was our 2nd tour with Ennio. His knowledge of art is very definitely Ennio's strong suit. Ennio took the time to explain the various pieces we viewed as well as pointing out the "small" stuff. Like the various self portraits contained within a number of the pieces. The turmoil between individuals that caused an artist to picture his protagonist in an undesirable manner. Our visit to Rome was better because of the time we spent with Ennio.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Russell. Thanks a lot,it's been a pleasure to guide you at the vatican. I really hope to see you in Roma again. Thanks. Ciao. Ennio

We took a tour with Ennio today of the Vatican city and St. Peter's. He was knowledgeable, patient, and polite. He made us feel very comfortable, and was patient while we took our million pictures. Most important was that there was dialogue, questions, and conversation with him about all the masterpieces, this you will never get in a group tour! Highly recommended, we are taking multiple tours with him. He also suggested good food places and where to get the best expresso in town.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Minh! Thanks a lot for your feedback. It's been a pleasure to guide you at the vatican and i really hope to see you again in Roma! Say hallo to your family. Take care. Ciao. Ennio

We booked 3 tours with Ennio during our stay in Rome and wish we had booked more. He is an excellent guide, professional and personable with a terrific knowledge of historic and current information about all things Rome. We were able to see the key "tourist" sites as well as get a feel for regular neighborhoods and life in Rome. Thanks Ennio for making our trip perfect. We are already planning to work with Ennio when we return to Rome later this year.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Doug! thanks a lot for everything. it's been a pleasure to guide you in Rome and i can't wait till your next tour in Rome. Thanks a lot and happy new year! Ciao. Ennio

Ennio's knowledge of the Vatican was incredible ! it was an experience we will never forget, it felt like a good friend was showing us the vatican, we learned so much, with the thousands of dollars we spent on a vaction, going to a place we had never been before, this is the ONLY way to experience it ! Ennio paced it just right, ToursByLocals was great as well, making the whole experience of hooking up with Ennio easy, thanks again Ennio, it was great!
