Date: Feb 20/20

We had 5 ToursByLocals in our European vacation (family of 4 with two teenagers). This, unfortunately given the venue - was our least engaging. Pros - Alessandra was very sweet to the kids. She navigated us through the crowds & was on time. Improvements : she seemed frantic throughout with her visual aids and communication style. At times - it seemed like a question negatively interrupted her flow - which should never happen. Alessandra might be a tremendous tour guide for some - but not for us

Alessandra was a great guide and gave a very enjoyable tour. She was flexible in showing us different places that aligned with our interests, gave the proper amount of info, was perceptive to when we found something interesting and had lots of pictures to help us imagine how the ancient places previously looked. She went the extra mile at the end by giving us some extra time to cover a few additional stops too. Overall, we loved her enthusiasm and knowledge, and also her flexibility and perceptiveness!!!

Our guide Alessandra was amazing! She was very personable and extremely knowledgeable! I would highly recommend her for a guide. Her knowledge of the Vatican was deep and extensive. She always replied to our inquiries with kindness and took time to explain. Alessandra even took extra time so that we could see everything. She was lovely. At the end, she made sure where we could get our cab and gave suggestions for lunch. Thank you Alessandra for making our day at the Vatican a special memory.

Alessandra was fun, knowledgeable, and kept our family of 4 engaged! We loved our visit to the Vatican and would highly recommend requesting Alessandra. Although it's an amazing experience to just see, her knowledge brought history to life. We learned so much! Grazie! Ciao!

What an amazing experience!!! My husband and I would never have been able to see everything that Alessandra showed us on our own. She is so knowledgeable and pointed out so many details we would never have known. The way she navigated us around the crowds and skipping the lines was a big bonus. Would definitely do it again! Thank you Alessandra!!!!

Alessandra is a wonderfully knowledgeable guide of Rome. She gave us 5 hours of private tours with some bonus insider commentaries, and made all ticketing arrangements for us in advance. She even offered to extend the tour, but our ship had just docked that morning and we were exhausted! That tiny body of hers carries a lot of energy inside!

Alessandra took my wife and I for a 3-hour tour of the Vatican (ended up over 3.5 hours). Alessandra did a great job, was very knowledgeable and kept a good pace so that we got to cover a lot of the points of interest but were not hurried. We were very pleased with our tour! 5 out of 5 Donald & Isabel

Alessandra knows Rome extremely well! We had a packed day in Rome with her and she showed us so much history about Rome. We were a bit behind schedule and she was able to get us into all the places we wanted to visit and more! A great day in Rome!
