Gentlemen Fabio was our guide for a half day tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. He was very knowledgeable and conducted our tour in a very professional manner. His knowledge and explanation of the sites brought them to life for us. The pace of the tour was excellent as was the content. We would highly recommend ToursByLocals and Fabio to anyone who wanted to learn about the history of the Ancient City. Sincerely, Candy & Bob Sand Hickory, NC

We were very happy with our guide Fabio. He was professional and well prepaired for the tour of the Colosseum. He brought along a book with drawings that helped us to imagine how the site would have looked 2000 years ago. I highly recommend Fabio!

This was a nice morning tour, before the heat really set in. Fabio will explain the Colosseum and the forum to you. You can stay in the forum after the tour and explore on your own, or take photos.
Fabio was fantastic, taking great care and time to ensure that our experience of these fantastic Roman sites was enjoyable and a learning experience for all. He is highly recommended.

Please accept this as our highest rating and appreciation for the tour given to us by Fabio. He was reliable in any response and on time for our tour. He shared a great deal of knowledge in a way that was adaptable to both adults and children. He is a very nice guy and it was very enjoyable to have him lead our tour. Was perfect for our family of 5. Thank you, Nemshick Family

Thank you very much for sharing your time and knowledge with us yesterday. We found the tour insightful, particularly the recently opened section in the Forum with the Frescos. Your ability to provide a timeline of events and highlight the historical accuracy of some representations left my family with greater information and understanding of Ancient Rome.
Fabio was extremely knowledgeable and informative and was able to answer any of our questions in detail. He made the Colesseum and Forum come alive! He even suggested a great restaurant for lunch. Defininitely exceeded expectations. Grazie Fabio!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim and Kathy for your very nice review. I really appreciate it.
I booked this tour as a wedding gift for my friends and Fabio did a great job!!! Thanks Fabio!!

This was the second tour we took with Fabio and it was as well done as the first tour, which was at The Vatican. Fabio is very knowledgeable about The Coliseum, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and the entire area. His descriptions and comments really gave us a good understanding of what we were seeing. Thank you for a great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much

Fabio did a great job as a tour guide. The temperature was over 90 degrees and as you can tell it was very hot. He was patient with our group and gave us plenty of time. Next time make it cooler.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It is now almost 100!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You!
Fabio was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable on our recent tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palantino. His art history/restoration background is perfect for providing interesting and fact filled tours. Fabio was also able to adapt the tour for our (2) young boys , 8 and 10 years old, to keep it interesting for them. If we could have we would have booked him for our Vatican/Sistine Chapel day but he was already booked!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Kimberly for your good review. Hope to see you and your family here again.

I wish I could give this tour more than 5 stars. Fabio is amazing. I have been to Rome several times but Fabio opened our eyes to so much more than we had experienced before. His English is impeccable, his knowledge and expertise are very impressive. Our children (ages 10 and 12) were mesmerized by the stories and history he shared with us. We will definitely seek out Fabio when we return to Rome!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Anthony, It has been my pleasure touring your lovely family around Rome. Thank you very much.

We were a group of 10 seniors and did this tour with Fabio in early October, 2014. Fabio met us at 9am and we got an early start on a beautiful fall morning. Amazing sites, great history. Fabio was very informative and was respectful of our needs. Highly recommend him. Give him a 10 out of 10.
Our whole experience was first rate. Fabio came to our hotel and we did exactly what we wanted to do. We are older folks who don't walk quickly and Fabio went at our speed and used the elevator which we would not have realized existed. His knowledge of the Facility was great and we had a good time, which is the whole intent of the visit. Unfortunately the Forum was closed but that's a norm in Italy - always someone on strike.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, thanks so much for your positive review. I'm glad you liked my tour. All the best. Fabio P.
Fabio was a fabulous guide. Extremely knowledgeable and interesting. He was flexible and was able to include a special request for a final stop at the Pantheon into our tour. Three hours was not long enough to cover the whole of the subject matter and if we had had more time we would have liked to book another 3 hour tour with Fabio to carry on in more depth. We have no hesitation in recommending Fabio and Tours by Locals to prospective clients.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Bruce.

The Colosseum was the first monument I saw on the ride in from Fiumicino. I could never have imagined its massive size. So too was my experience with the depth and knowledge presented by Fabio from the beginning to the end of the tour. I learned so much; I cannot wait to assimilate it all. Thanks Fabio!
