Tour: #502481, Fco Transfer to Hotel & back, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Nov 14/19

My pre-trip communication with Pamela was very good. There were no issues on first transfer to the City Center. On the second trip, a hotel transfer, I had requested more than 2 weeks in advance for a pick up time change from 12:00pm to 2:30 pm, and confirmed this with Pamela. That day I received a very threatening phone call at 1:30 pm from her boss stating that a driver was waiting for me since 12:00 pm and where was I? Happy with our driver, Mauro - not happy with internal communications.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joseph, It was delightful to meet you both. I’m sorry that communications were crossed by emails regarding the pickup time which was not clear to the driver. Please trust me when I say that no one was upset with you and that we just wanted to make certain that you connected with the second driver sent for your transfer to your new hotel that day. I so look forward to your return and showing you much more of my beautiful country. Grazie , Pamela

Tour: Pompei and Amalfi Coast from Rome, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Nov 12/19

We had such spectacular day driving from Rome to the Amalfi coast with Pamela with her driver Marco. Marco did a superb job of driving all that way. Italy's landscape is so stunning with the beautiful trees and rolling hills with mountains in the background. But the drive along the Amalfi Coast is magnificent. The town of Sorrento with all its shops open and the town decorating for Christmas was very lovely. Pamela took us for a wonderful lunch at Sorrentino's Winery. Another great tour with Pamela!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Terry! It was such a pleasure to take you around to some of the top sights on the Amalfi coast. Please come back soon and let us take you to see much more of our beautiful land. Grazie millie - your friend in Rome - Pamela

Tour: Best Eternal city tour, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Nov 11/19

We walked right in with our VIP passes to the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel that Pamela arranged for us and thank goodness we had them. It was pouring rain and the line of people went on forever. Pamela walked us around the inside of the Colosseum, had another great lunch at a local restaurant. Another amazing day of unbelievable sites, the beauty of the city and all that history you get to experience as Pamela guides you around making sure you miss nothing. Thank you Pamela for another great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Terry!!! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed our day touring Rome together and It was my pleasure to share all of it with you and more. Please come back soon! Grazie, Pamela

Tour: Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Nov 10/19

Pamela was waiting for us with her driver Marco as we got off our ship in Civitavecchia. We had a wonderful drive through the country side of Rome on our way to Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregi. Great places for pictures, told us about the Dying City. Pamela took us for a great Tuscany Lunch at a Winery while Marco watched over our luggage. We had such a specular day on our first day in Rome with Pamela. We felt so comfortable with our hosts it was like our Sister was touring us around Italy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Terry! We both enjoyed meeting you so much and cannot wait for your return to Italy!! It was my pleasure to spend your first day in Rome together. Grazie tanto! Pamela

Pamela was a substitute tour guide. She was able to step in and provide an enjoyable tour. A specialty tour guide was waiting for us in Pompei. The Pompei guide was very informative and knowledgeable of the history of Pompei. After Pompei we continue to the Amalfi coast for that was a delightful drive followed by a lunch at a winery.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Regina, I enjoyed meeting you. Happy that you enjoyed the day and look forward to your return.

Tour: Shore Excursion from Civitavecchia to Rome, Civitavecchia, Lazio, Italy
Date: Aug 17/19

Pam gave us an amazing 7 hour tour of Rome with driver Fabrizio at the wheel. We arranged this very last minute & she was so accommodating. We saw far more than we expected to and she was very great at pacing our large group of 8. She had fabulous lunch (and also dinner) suggestions and made the arrangements for us. Don't miss her gelato stop! We would definitely without question recommend Pam to others interested in the beautiful sights of Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Ellen it was such an absolute pleasure assisting you with your touring and transferring needs. We so enjoyed showing you all the best of Rome in a Day! Please come back soon , if not for me then the Gelato for sure ; )))))

I can't say enough about Pamela (and her driver Mario). We asked to see a lot and we got it all done. We even had a surprise or two! It's a beautiful city and having Pamela show it to us made it even better. My whole family (husband and 3 teenagers) adored her. Pamela, if you happen to read this, next time we're coming for gnocchi Thursday!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Kelly! The pleasure to spend time and to know your family was all mine. I so enjoyed showing you all the little off the beaten track surprise places and hope that you return to me quickly for gnocchi on a Thursday!

Date: Jun 16/19

I must start with saying Pamela is fabulous!!!!! She is fun, kind and caring. She makes you feel like you have known her forever. My sister and I were traveling from Rome to the Amalfi Coast. We decided to make the journey an experience. And it was! The lemon farm and seeing homemade mozzarella made was wonderful. The lunch was perfect and a nice break on the trip to Positano. It was a travel day but felt way more fun and enjoyable!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Christine! It was amazing meeting you and your sister. I look forward to your return to me next year. Grazie Pamela

Pamela met our party of 6 at 8:00am for our top Eternal Rome tour. The day began with a short informative tour of the local sites while on route to an underground tour of the Colosseum. Pamela shared with us the SECRET key hole in Rome which was a nice surprise. We stopped for a nice lunch and then continued on to Vatican City. Roberta was our guide in the Vatican and she was excellent. Very passionate about her work. The day was wonderful and ran like clock work thanks to Pamela. She was wonderful

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Millie Billie Jo! It was such a pleasure to meet all of you and show you around my Eternal city packed with history, culture and neat little surprises. Come back soon, I have so much more to show you! Your guide in Rome, Pamela

Tour: #522093, 3 Hours Trastevere Foodie Tour, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Dec 7/18

We had the BEST time with Pamela on our tours!! We had some scheduling conflicts with a few of the tours we booked, and she went above and beyond to accommodate our schedules. And when we really loved one of our tours in particular, she worked really hard to book us with the same guide for our cooking class! She even helped show us where the best shopping was, and made sure that our Campo de'Fiori Market shopping was open on a national holiday. It couldn't have worked out more perfectly thanks to Pamela!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Heather! The pleasure was all mine and I so enjoyed meeting all of you fantastic ladies! Your review brings joy to my heart and I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Grazie mille!

Tour: Skip the line: Day tour in Tivoli from Rome - Villa Adriana and Villa D'este, Tivoli, Lazio, Italy
Date: Sep 20/18

Our trip to Tivoli was like being in a dream. Pam was so good at bringing the past to life for us, and we could really understand what life at Hadrian's Villa was like. At the Villa Estes, Pam showed us so much about the house. If we had gone alone we would have missed so much, we discovered many interesting things.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful review and accolades of our day in Tivoli. The pleasure of exploring and showing you the treasures of Villa D’ Este were all mine. Grazie Millie, your guide in Roma, Pam
