The most peaceful of all our tours with Fabio in Rome. Although we were limited to 2hrs in the Gallery, your words Fabio were so true: "I will show you the best". Not only did the information flow from you like a river during our Vatican and Ancient Rome tours with you, but your knowledge on the art we were blessed to see in this gallery was astounding. Thank you for guiding us through this gallery and its beautiful gardens. You never missed a moment to share your vast knowledge!

Thank you Fabio, for being such a wonderful tour guide. Your information never stopped flowing. You managed to effortlessly guide us through the river of people never missing an opportunity to teach us about The Vatican and its history. We loved your choice of Pasta-On-The-Go lunch after The Vatican. Just as we entered the Basilica, you said: "and now for the wow moment". You were our wow moment during this and all the other tours we did with you!

Fabio was an amazing guide. He had a never-ending supply of information and we loved that he supplemented his information with pictures and videos on his I-pad. We did several tours with him and in the end he managed to tie everything together. We got more than the full picture on Rome, its past, present and future. He has an entertaining personality and if we are ever blessed with another trip to Rome, he will be our go-to guide! Thank you, Fabio!

Fabio was an excellent guide for our tour of the Vatican. He was articulate, engaging, and deeply knowledgeable about everything we toured. He also took the time to listen to us to know more about us personally and our recent travels and was able to incorporate relevant pieces into his stories. Bravo Fabio!

Fabio was truly an exceptional guide! His expertise and passion made the Colosseum come alive. The tour of St. Clement's was the highlight for many in our group. Fabio's great sense of humor made our tour entertaining as well as informative. He was also incredibly patient with our group, handling some unexpected delays and technical issues like the professional he is. If you come to Rome and don't meet Fabio, you are really missing out!

Fabio was an excellent tour guide. I understood that we were going to the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill but was blown away by the first stop on our tour at St. Clemente Basilica. So much history represented by one relatively small Basilica. Really worth while and would heartily recommend both Fabio and the tour to anyone interested in both archaeology and the early church.

We had been to the Vatican before a few years ago. We never saw it like we did through the eyes of our guide Fabio. Being an archeologist Fabio had so much knowledge and insight. He set a pace that allowed plenty of time for each space we viewed. Would definitely recommend him and this tour

Unfortunately, Fabio got our priorities wrong. In spite of an e-mail saying our priority was the Colosseum and ancient Rome we spent too much time at St. Clements which he was previously advised was not important and only to be explored if we had time. Instead he started there, spending 90 minutes which in our opinion caused us to be rushed through the Colosseum and hurried into the ancient Rome then herded out because it was closing. Would have much rather spent the other 90 minutes here!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ken, thank you so much for your valuable suggestions and I'm sorry for St. Clements. I sent you the digital images via email as you requested. Thanks for the compliments that you gave me by e-mail. All the best, Fabio

Fabio is easy to talk with and knows his subjects well. Aside from making us much more familiar with the sites we visited than an entrance ticket and pictures can give he offered a great deal of perspective and insight into how life was in the time frame when these places were part of daily life as well as the process of rediscovering them. Very enjoyable. Thanks!

Great, Wonderful, Fabio made the trip perfect for our group. He modified our route to accommodate one of our group who had to use a wheelchair and we did not miss any of the Vatican.

Fabio was a phenomenal tour guide. We were about 20 mins late, and he was nothing but patient and accommodating. He really brought the Colosseum, Forum, and Basilica of St. Clement to life. He's incredibly knowledgeable, and was one of our best guides throughout all of Italy. Highly recommended!!

Fabio was a great guide that answered any question I had. His technical expertise was impressive and I found him very much like a college professor who loves his subject and is eager to help others learn. He presented the tour with all the wonder the sites deserve and put then in perspective. The tour was worth the time and expense and I would use him again if I come back.

We had a great time touring Rome with Fabio. He was so knowledgeable about everything. He was well prepared and had an ipad with exhibits and additional teaching tools to make sure we really understood everything we were looking at. Since he is an archeologist himself, he has a persepective that the other guides just won't have. Besides knowing everything and being a great teacher, Fabio is a really likeable guy and was fun to hang out with. We talked history, culture, language etc. and had a great time.

Fabio was an awesome tour guide for this tour. He gave us a lot of history and used his tablet to show us images of what the forum and Colosseum would have looked like 2000 years ago. It really helped us to imagine what life was like back then. He kept the pace of the tour at a very comfortable one so we all had time to take a lot of pictures and ask questions. Great tour!!

We toured the Colosseum and Roman Forum with Fabio. He gave us the history of these incredible sites, but what really made it great was his perspective as an archaeologist! We were looking at the different levels of buildings in the Forum with an archaeologist's eye, which put us right back in the times these sites were occupied. He was easy to talk to and eager to answer our questions. Our family decided it was one of our favorite things we did in Rome -- and we did a lot! Thanks Fabio!

Fabio was fabulous! Our family (including teenagers) truly enjoyed visiting the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Forum with Fabio. His love of archeology came through and he presented the ancient sites superbly. His English was excellent as was his demeanor. I cannot imagine visiting these sites without his explanation and expertise!
