Date: Mar 8/20

Great tour! Although we were unable to go inside Coliseum due to coronavirus, Roberta made up for it by taking us to many other interesting places. There were no lines anywhere, and very few people to get in the way of the perfect picture. She also did well to keep the tour moving so it wasnt boring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Trent for following through on your tour in these uncertain times. I very much enjoyed taking you gentleman to see as much of the Eternal city as possible. Please do visit again soon! Grazie, Roberta

Tour: #296263, Venice Highlights - Full Day Roundtrip from Rome to Venice by Train!, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Nov 10/19

Roberta was a wonderful guide and provided my husband and I a fantastic day in Venice and Moreno. We saw all the sights we hoped for and were able to revise our itinerary due to the flooding in Venice so that we could still see the sights of Venice later in the day. I would highly recommend her for any tour to Italy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kristine, it was a magical day and I’m so pleased that you enjoyed seeing as much of Venice as we could. Wishing you and your family health and happiness in 2020. I look forward to your return to see much more of Italy. Grazie

Roberta was amazing! She accepted and coordinated a last minute full day tour of Rome. The trip was part of my grandma's 81st birthday present. We went at my grandma's pace and saw more of Rome than we thought possible in one day. Our driver was fantastic as well. We can't thank you enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Lindsay, I was delighted to arrange your splendid day in Rome. So pleased that your grandma’s Birthday was a success and that I was a part of that. Looking foreword to your return.

Date: Oct 18/19

When our original guide had to call in sick less tha 24 hours before our tour, Tour by locals stepped in and save the day by finding Roberta and Roberta was fantastic, she is very knowledgeable and made us feel as though we were the only ones in the Vatican, we skipped the lines and she always found private enclaves even in the busiest corridors. We had 2 fantastic tours during our time in Rome and the next time we travel we will surely us your services

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my absolute pleasure to meet you and I look forward to your return. Happy that I could save the day with touring you inside the Vatican and finding the right places to speak privately without all the crowd around. Grazie millie

Date: Aug 29/19

Very smooth tour and excellent guide and driver. We had to get up early and ready for the long day, but it ended up being worth it as we beat most of the crowds and traffic. The two towns are absolutely adorable and worth a visit. The Duomo in Orvieto was a pleasant surprise as was Civita for its quiet old charm. But be warned that it is a strenuous hike up to Civita. :)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie millie David! So pleased that you enjoyed your tour and looking forward to your return to my beautiful country.

Day two with Roberta. Amazing that we were able to see so much in one day. Roberta is organized, professional and a pleasure to spend the day with. Everything is carefully planned to maximize the day, drivers, tickets, lunch etc. Touring with Roberta is like having your local friend show you Rome. We will hire her again on our next trip to Italy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie and I’m looking forward to you coming back to visit more of Italy with me.

Roberta was outstanding. She explained things in a way that made them exciting and kept our attention no matter how long the tour. Very knowledgeable about the content of the tour but also about the world at large. She was sensitive to our family's needs as we were traveling with 80 year old parents. Her English is perfect. I would try to find her again if I had to book another tour in her area.

Everyone in our family of 6 (children ages 15, 9, 9, & 8) loved this tour! Roberta did a great job of explaining the local area while also customizing the food tour to work for both adults and my kids! Transportation was prompt and courteous and the Catacomb experience and history was both interesting and educational. Roberta has a love for Rome and a gift for guiding. Highly recommend Roberta and this your to all!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Brian, it was such a pleasure to meet your family.

This truly is the "Top Kids Tour in Rome"! My entire family of 6 (children: 15, 9, 9, & 8) loved the entire day. Cooking class was great with a friendly/knowledgeable chef who taught how to cook authentic Italian pizza & gelato but also explained ingredients & why they each were used. Everyone loved the Gladiator school! Had a great instructor who educated us on the history of Roman soldiers & gladiators while also including the adults. Roberta was amazing throughout it all making sure everyone had fun!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian! I so enjoyed meeting your wonderful family and look forward to your return. Blessings, Roberta

Roberta was excellent! She had a wealth of knowledge and was eager to share just the right amount of details about the Vatican with our family of 6. We ranged in ages from 74 to 15. She is perfect for smaller groups as her voice does not always project real well. We really appreciated that there were times where she allowed us to just wonder a bit on our own. Great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie , come back soon!

Date: May 21/19

This tour should be at the top of your list! And, if you can get Roberta as your guide - it is the icing on the cake. She is an expert on the Colosseum and the Forum. This is an in-depth tour, full of information, stories, and little known facts. Plus, because this is a private tour, we were able to move at our own pace, ask questions, and spend time where we wanted. This is a must do when visiting Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie, Grazie, Grazie! It was my absolute pleasure to spend time showing you the best of Ancient Rome. Please do come back soon!

Roberta is top notch! She was extremely professional, well informed on all sites we visited, and was extremely efficient in getting us around Rome within the time allotted. She took us to a WONDERFUL lunch spot and was one of the best parts of Rome for us. She even last minute worked us in to her schedule the next day for a guided tour of the Vatican! Don't hesitate to book with her, will be calling her on our return trip to Italy!

Roberta's attention to detail before, during and after the tour was amazing! She brought pictures and posters and briefed us during breakfast as well as created a "plan of action", which made the maneuvering through the museum, Basilica, Forum and Colosseum very easy and much less hectic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joseph! I so enjoyed meeting you and look forward to your return to Rome. Grazie, Roberta

Tour: #296257, Pompei and Amalfi Coast from Rome Roundtrip!, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Apr 3/19

Fabulous tour of Pompeii. Nice walk through Sorrento. We decided not to go to Amalfi Coast due to rain. Note to any people who are considering this tour. We spent 7 hours in the car and did not go to the Amalfi Coast. The reason for only 4 out of 5 Stars is that the tour guide and the driver spent more than half the time in the car speaking to each other in Italian. We felt a little left out. But we would like to say that Roberta was very friendly and very personable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Louis, it was such a pleasure to meet you both and I’m so sorry that the weather was not good for a drive over to Positano. I’m certain that you made the right decision and I hope that you enjoyed also the traditional lunch at the oldest farm in Sorrento, which is also on the Amalfi coast. Happy that you enjoyed our time to walk in the center and shop for traditional items. I’m truly sorry that you felt left out at any point while I was giving the driver instructions. Thank you for your review.

Roberta was absolutely amazing! She was very friendly and talkative and we enjoyed our entire day with her. She is very knowledgeable about the entire city of Rome and set up very unique excursions including this amazing lemon farm (which was my favorite part of the entire trip) Walking around Sorrento was very relaxing knowing we had her with us, she knew exactly which stores to pop into for free samples! Thank you Roberta for making our trip to Italy so great!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly for your words and feelings regarding our tour together. You must return to Italy soon, I have so much to show you. I also enjoyed Getting to know you. Grazie, Roberta

Tour: Day trip to Pompeii & Amalfi coast., Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Mar 18/19

The sites were very nice but guide could have been more attentive and explain things to us rather than talk non stop to the driver in a language we could not understand. Also guide did not explain the type of menu available at the restaurant and misrepresented the total length of the tour by 2 to 3 hours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dearest Patricia, I apologize that you felt my attention was not given fully to you during our tour. I was speaking to the driver in Italian to ensure that all of your wishes of the day were respected. He doesn’t speak English. The wineries in Italy normally do not have menu’s to choose from , they have set items to pair the wines with, as you enjoyed. I was unaware of your kosher food request but hope you enjoyed the wondeful vegan farm to table fare you were given. Wishing you continued safe travels.
