This was our second tour with Valentina in 1 week and again she was excellent . We had a tour of colloseum , Foro Romano and Palatine hills .She did a fantastic job and at all the major locations she took her time to explain the significance of each area and also with pictorials showed us the drawings of how these areas looked like in their original form which really help us understand the might of the area . If we come back to Rome will definitely use her as a guide again, highly recommend her .
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Imran, I'm so glad to read your comment. Pictorials have been recently replaced and you had the occasion to see them, I'm happy you appreciated the new one :) hope to see you again in Rome! Ciao, Valentina

Valentina is fluent in English, knowledgeable and a good tour guide. However, she is a bit disorganized. She accidentally double booked tours later in the day after our tour was to take place. The day before we needed to rearrange our schedule to meet earlier than we had booked with her, otherwise she needed to cancel. Her print outs (drawings and other info.) were in old, crumpled plastic page protectors making it hard to see; also these were in no order so she was fumbling frequently for the right one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tanya, unfortunately you booked very last minute and in this case since it was high season, for being able to satisfy your request, I had to change your timing about 30 minutes. The alternative was cancel the tour. In any case, I'm sorry if this has been a problem for you and your family. Regarding my print outs, they've been replaced. Thanks for having told me this, it has been very helpful for me. Hope to see you again, Valentina

Valentina was terrific! We we delayed due to traffic but she was patient and understanding. Valentina gave an excellent tour of the Colosseum, The Forum and Palentine Hill. She answered our questions thoroughly and she allowed us to set the pace of the tour; listening to our questions and interests. I highly reccomend Valentina! She is energetic, knowledgeable, extremely kind and a wonderful ambassador for Rome! Great advice for lunch and directions to other sites in the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marie, thank you very much. I’m glad you appreciated my tour and my reccomandation too. Hopefully to see you again in Rome! Valentina

Valentina is a very nice guide who provided good information and facts. She took it slowly and came very prepared with lots of pictures to describe the colosseum. She is knowledgable and made our day more pleasant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Beth, thank you. Your group was great and we had a lot of fun! Hope to see you again! Ciao

Of course the colosseum was beautiful but what I will always remember is how our tour guide, Valentina, knew everything about the colosseum. She answered any question we had and knew the perfect spots to point out the most extraordinary facts. She didn't make it feel like you were on a guided tour but as if she was part of the group. She even offered to take many many pictures for us. Even when there was a problem entering the colosseum she stayed calm and talked to everyone to let us in!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Noelle! It was very good meeting you, and thanks for your words! Hopefully to see you again in Rome or in US :) regards Valentina
It was an excellent trip. Valentina our guide is very nice, cheerful, friendly and knows her job very well. She is very professional and was very cooperative. We spend almost 3 hours in colosseum and around and she gave every possible detail of Roman history. In short she made our day and I along with my family enjoyed a Lot Regards Prof Muhammad Sajid
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Prof. Sajid, Thanks for the kind words you had! I enjoyed it too with you and your lovely family! Hope to see you again in Rome. Regards Valentina
