Alessandra was wonderful. Her English was very good and she is polite and knowledgeable and easy to work with in regards to where to meet. The amount of "stuff" we covered was amazing. We booked her for two tours after the recommendation of a friend and I'd say book her if you are lucky enough that she's available.

Alessandra was exactly as advertised. We took her Vatican Museum tour. Having been to Rome and the Vatican before we wondered if an extra guide would be worthwhile- WONDER no more- it is a completely different visit when going with Alessandra. It is not merely a highlights of the Vatican Museum tour, we would inquire about pieces of work that many folks were passing by and Alessandra had an amazing depth & breadth of knowledge about every piece we saw or asked about.

We had to cover a lot, and she even generously extended our time to make sure she covered all of the points she wanted to make. As other reviewers noted, she also cheerfully took pictures of us whenever we asked. Finally, while not only a knowledgeable guide, she is a useful navigator through the lines and hordes of people! She knows what she is doing!

I've seen the Coliseum 3 times in my life so far. It's an amazing destination. And, Sonia from tours by locals was amazing tour guide. It was the best presentation of the Coliseum I've seen. She was able to speak to my whole family with an age range from 11 to 51. She made our trip memorable and fun. We were able to bypass the long lines and be able to spend more time on the parts that were interesting to us. I highly recommend Sonia and tours by local company.

Borghese Gallery Had a nice tour- Alexandra is extremely knowledgeable and very committed to ensure the itinerary proscribed by the gallery is adhered to- this seemed to put her under pressure as she kept checking the timing on her wrist watch. Would have preferred a more time on the paintings, and personally would have liked more emphasis on exemplifying the art and techniques of the different periods. I did mention this and she did try to sort something out, but it was already too late

We spent several hours with Alessandra who really knows her art and political history. I don't think there was one question she couldn't answer. She was also able to hold the attention of my ten year old daughter with quizzes and treasure hunt games. As far as I'm concerned touring the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum is essential to do with a guide. You get so much more out of the place, if you do. Alessandra is an excellent choice for this.

She took us through the galleries and pointed out highlights of each, giving us an understanding of the purpose and intent of sharing this expansive collection with the public. Her knowledge of the Chapel was impressive and she pointed out details we wouldn't have known otherwise. Her tour of St. Peter's was equally superb.

She also spent more than the allotted time with us, which was very nice of her, and very much appreciated. You could tell she really enjoyed the history and was happy to be explaining it to us!

Our 7 year old son is still talking about his visit to the "sixteen" chapel. Alessandra made it fun for him by giving him a page with different portions of the chapel ceiling's painting prior to entering and asking him to find them once we were inside. Thanks Alessandra!

Alessandra gave us a memorable tour of the art collection at the Borghese Gallery. As recommended, we arrived early and avoided the crowd. As she took us though each room of this beautiful villa, she taught us about the history of all the important works of art. I recommend this tour to art lovers.

Alessandra was a little disorganized at the beginning of the tour, but once we got into the Borghese Gallery she showed that she has mastered her studies. Going through the gallery was a good and educational experience. It is most interesting that the gallery was built for nothing but show!

Alessandra did a great job giving us a tour of the Colosseum, Palatine and Roman Forum. Although I experienced technical difficulties booking this tour at the last minute, once we connected with Alessandra we were so happy we did! She brought some very helpful visual aids so that we could visualize the site as it was in Roman times. I would highly recommend Alessandra!

A very enjoyable tour with Alessandra today. We covered a lot of ground both walking and discussing history and ancient architecture. Alessandra was very knowledgeable and helped to bring to life the ancient remains around the Colliseum, Palatine Hill and Forum of Ancient Rome. I thoroughly recommend Alessandra as a guide in this fascinating area of Rome.
