Claudia was fantastic!!! 10/10. We have used Toursbylocals many times and Claudia is among the best. She is informative, bright, warm and friendly. We did an Ancient Rome 3 hour tour and despite the numerous stops, Claudia commanded the transmittal of information so that it was both informative and manageable. Bravo Claudia on a job well done. Next time we are in Rome, we will be sure to reach out to you. Ciao :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much David for your amazing feedback! it was a pleasure for me too! CIAO!

Claudia was amazing. Her knowledge of the sites we visited so detailed. She allowed us to choose a couple of options towards the end knowing my with Susan was starting to get tired. We originally thought the tour was quite expensive, but after the tour we all felt we really received a bargain. We could have never seen the sites we did on out own. We would definitely book another should the opportunity arise. CIAO and Arrivederci!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jerry for your feedback ! I hope to see you again!

We had a wonderful tour with Claudia! She was very knowledgeable on Vatican history and details. She also was very patient allowing us to ask many questions and take photos. She maneuvered us effectively through the crowds and was able to give us front row views of the subject matter. She was very congenial and a pleasure to spend time with!

This was an amazing tour. We met Claudia at the Colosseum. She was super friendly, knowledgeable. She navigated us through these large crowds and was able to share and educate to the history of the colosseum, Trevi Fountain, the Forum, Sistine chapel, Vatican museum and so much more. If you only have one day, these are a must see and it was fabulous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Myrna I'm glad you really liked your tour it was very pleasant to be with you on that day

Took the tour with Claudia on 10/16 and we were well pleased. Claudia is well versed in art history as well as Roman history. None of our questions came close to stumping her. She is quite charming and will give you as much detail as you want on everything. Especially liked the pre Sistine Chapel education so we would know everything about it when we got in the chapel. Great tour and great guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Timothy It was a huge pleasure to be your guide I'm super glad you liked you tour Looking forward to see you again in Rome !

Claudia was a great tour guide for our visit to Vatican City. We had some time constraints going in and she was very accommodating, customizing the tour to make sure we saw the best of the Vatican during our time there. We would highly recommend Claudia to anyone looking for a patient, knowledgable, and fun tour guide in Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Dean for your feedback!

Our driver Daniele & tour guide Claudia were wonderful! Had a great day full of great historical information especially about the Colosseum, Roman Forum & Vatican. We could tell Claudia was well know & well respected wherever we went. We also enjoyed the delicious Traditional Roman lunch at nice out of the way local restaurant away from tourists.

Claudia is one of the best guides we have ever had. She managed to make our Rome visit a memorable one for all (ranging in age from 11 to 73 with individuals who had been to Rome multiple times to those who had never been!). Her choice of the restaurant for lunch was a highlight of our entire trip. Our driver Roberto was amazing-- how he managed to navigate the narrow streets and alleys of Rome in a large minibus for the 7 of us I will never know. Bravo and highest recommendations to both.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!

Claudia was amazing. Knowledgeable, talkative, flexible. She answered every question and inquiry professionally. Our driver, Roberto, was always in the right place at the right time. Friendly as well. They honestly both made an extraordinary team. They worked so well together. Anyone should request Claudia when touring Rome. It was well worth the cost many times over.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!

We so enjoyed experiencing Rome with Claudia! She was energetic, fun, knowledgeable and helped us maximize our experience in Rome. If you only have one day to experience Rome and you are looking for a guide Claudia is your gal. We learned so much and avoided long lines, the crowds and the heat. Great job Claudia and thank you for a great day in Rome!

On a day that Putin visited the Pope and there was a record heatwave, Claudia smoothed the way, picking us up in an air conditioned van, getting tickets in advance and avoiding line. As an art historian and expert guide, she was able to provide great background to my granddaughter, knew her way through the Vatican perfectly, took us to a wonderful Roman restaurant--my list can go on and on! I heard that the folks who took the cruise tour stood in line for 90 minutes in the sun for Vatican tickets.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot!

Our Vatican Museum tour with older kids was such a great experience because of our private guide Claudia M.. We all felt her style (a former teacher) made everything more engaging, interesting and stories come to life, while the time flew by!

Oh WOW, so much to see and do with this tour, Vatican City, Colosseum, and so much more in a short time frame. I bought so many books to help me understand the before and after of all these places, pictures will not be enough. Had a wonderful lunch of all appetizers and it was so much to eat even with 5 of us at a outdoor restaurant that She picked out for us. History is everywhere in this city. Would have liked to just stayed here and enjoyed Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your feedback is super Monica Thank you so much! Hope to see you again in Rome!
