Giuseppe was absolutely fabulous!! We wanted a guided tour of the most beautiful fountains and the history behind them. He knew everything and exactly where to go. Giuseppe was incredibly patient as we poked around the little shops with our children and bought souvenirs. Our kids loved him and were so sad to say goodbye. Thank you Giuseppe for two amazing days in Rome!!!

The in depth knowledge Guiseppe had of all the place we visited made for an excellent day . Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Andy, Nicky and Loren! Thank you for your excellent review and definitively for coming to Rome to spend the day with me. We had a great time walking first from your hotel to the Colosseum, then and interesting visit of San Sebastian's Catacombs and finally e deep exploration of the Vatican Museum. We had like a "concentrated juice" of Rome to taste little by little over the 8 hours of our tour. So sweet. Thank you and hope to see you again very soon in Naples. Ciao Giuseppe

Giuseppe was the best guide we had on our entire trip to Europe. He is knowledgeable, organized, and reliable, and professional. He understands how to best navigate the Museums, Sistine Chapel, etc with the huge crowds and how to get us to the best viewing spots with his enriching talk beforehand. Instead of a tourist trap lunch, he showed us to a incredible local restaurant that we dined in during the tour. He is a delightful person to spend the day with and I would definitely recommend him highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Karen and Kim Thank you very much for the spectacular words you wrote about our shore excursions in Naples and Rome and about me! They were challenging but your intelligence, kindness and smiles made my role of guide very easy and consequently the tours successfully. I've loved to show you the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St Peter's Basilica, the Catacombs of Rome and Pompeii and the Archaeological Museum of Naples. I've loved to share opinions remarks and sensations with my best friends. Thank you!
We were a group of 3 (wife, 8-year-old daughter and me) and it was our first time in Rome and with toursByLocals; so we were initially nervous but as soon as we met Giuseppe, we knew all would be fine. Giuseppe was ver nice, very knowledeable and he was great accomodating the walking-tour plan to how our daughter was feeling...We all had a great time with him and we got to know everything we wanted..we recommend him very much for any of these tours!...thanks Giuseppe!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Helkyn, Sonia and Estefania! Thank you very much for your excellent comments about our two days spent together in Rome. We enjoyed a real Cultural Marathon: from the Sistine Chapel to Saint Peter’s Basilica and its Dome, from the Colosseum to the Spanish Steps! Wow! We had nice meals in local restaurants too! You did a great job walking at my side and I really appreciated your attention and curiosity about everything we walked by. At the end of each day I felt like walking with old friends of mine.
Giuseppe is AWESOME! To sum it up, he is like a really smart friend showing you around his city. He took us on a tour of the Vatican museum. He is well educated in art history and especially the works in the Sistine Chapel. Most importantly, we laughed and joked like friends. He taught us practical things that made our stay in Rome easier such as how to use the Metro, Mass schedules, where to find good restaurants and quality religious "souvenirs", and good Italian wine. We will definitely hire him again!

We so lucked out with Giuseppe guiding us through Rome. On day one he took us to the Vatican museums, Vatican including the Sistine Chapel. He took care of all the tickets in advance and could not have been more accommodating. He found us a place for lunch and left us to visit alone, with we loved. We also visited the Forum, the Catacombs and the Coliseum. A true highlight for me was the Borghese gallery. He is the BEST

We are so happy that we were able to have Giuseppe as our tour guide in Rome. He was absolutely great! There is no way we would have ever seen or learned as much as we did without him. He met us at our hotel and helped us with all we wanted to do while we were in Rome. Giuseppe was the the best guide ever!
Audra PetersonUnited States
I cannot say enough about Giuseppe. He was knowledgeable, considerate, personable, and most accommodating. Not only did he give a great tour, he also helped us find great local restaurants and made reservations for us in advance.
Margaret ComfortUnited States
I highly recommend Giuseppe. He completely tailored our tour to fit our wants and needs. There were four of us including my 17 & 19 year old sons. He has a wonderful personality, and is extremely knowledgable. Just what you want in a tour guide. We saw more in 7 days with Giuseppe and gathered more information than we could have in 7 days of wondering around on our own. He also gave us the absolute best restaurant recommendation. Thanks G
Giuseppe is a very skilled and enthusiastic guide, well worth using for a tour of Rome. Even took us to some unusual and lesser known places - a grat experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello my dear friends Tore and Tove! I had a great time with you in Rome. It was a great experience also for me to show you what is in Rome hidden to the most. Thank you for coming! I really hope our paths will cross again in the future. All the best. My respect and regards. Giuseppe

Giuseppe was great. Very, very knowledgeable and very, very passionate about Rome and its history. If you are a serious student of this region and its history then he is the guy. We were a little more in the "very interested but not rabid" category, but we still got z huge amount of fascinating information from him. Nice guy too. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful day with Giuseppe, he is very knowledgeable and he provided a wealth of information about all the areas that we visited that day. He has a very friendly and caring demeanor and we would absolutely would recommend a tour with him. We are planning to head back again in a few months and will definitely look to schedule again with Giuseppe. Thanks again for a very enjoyable day in beautiful rome!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jason, thank you very much for your comment. Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in getting back to you. I have been very busy during the last months. I really felt to be with old frieds during our day in Rome. Your family is fantastic; your mum so sweet and your father great companion. Thank you for coming to Rome and believe me I cannot wait to see you all again for another memorable day in the Ethernal city. Ciao Giuseppe
We had a FANTASTIC day with Giuseppe. He is enthusiastic, dynamic, knowledgeable, informative and passionate about the history of Rome. He also recommended some sights for us to see the following days that turned out to be exactly what we wanted to see. I highly recommend Giuseppe.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sylvie, Thank you very much for your review. I'm so happy that you enjoyed our tour. Rome is a spectacular place and it was easy for me to show you its beauties. You are fantastic persons and it came natural to me to give you all my enthusiasm and passion. I really hope to see you again in Rome or in the warmer southern Italy. I embrace you all, Sylvie, Joan Philip and Robert!! Ciao!
G was FANTASTIC in guiding us through Rome. He took us through the Vatican, and even though it was NOT our first time through, he made it feel brand new- we learned SO much this time!! He has such a passion for history- art, biblical, architectural- it's limitless and he shares it all! We LOVED that! We took 3 tours with G and honestly, through all 3 he made us feel important and he gave us a VERY GOOD value for our money. We will absolutely be recommending him to our friends!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille, amici miei!! The Vatican museums are so fascinating that it came natural to me to tell you about history, art, and culture of the Eternal city through the masterpieces in there kept. Thank you for coming! I can't wait to see you again to explore together other faces of Rome! Ciao G
