Sergio was WONDERFUL. We had only 8-9 hours in Rome, and he saw to it that we made the most of our time there. He knew so much history, and we appreciated his ability to give us just the right amount of information and time at each stop. It was worth every penny. We HIGHLY recommend Sergio and ToursByLocals.com.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amy grazie! Thanks! How is the cruise going? I’m sure you guys are enjoying a lot! Say ciao to the others Hope seeing you again soon All my best Ciao Sergio

Sergio was like a professor - so knowledgeable and he took the time to explain what he knew about everything as he walked us through the Vatican. It was beautiful! The experience couldn't have been more enjoyable. Thank you Sergio for showing us so much and being so kind.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Marina great pleasure being with you Hope doing some other visit in a next future All my best Sergio G

We give Sergio 10 stars! Our 3-day tour of Rome was absolutely amazing! Sergio's knowledge of the history and all the sites exceeded all of our expectations. We learned so much! Our kids, ages 7 & 9, adored him! He made the information fun and easy to understand for them, and painted a historic picture for us to remember, and recant, for years to come. Thank you!!

Sergio was very accomodating to our group of six - ages ranging from 82 to 5. We had varying degrees of mobility and he was very patient, very informative. It is not easy to tour Rome in a day, but we managed to squeeze in the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel, a little of St Peters Basilica. He had a table ready for us for lunch, too (we paid separately, not included in tour). He supplied us with a driver, Simone, who was outstanding. Thank you, Sergio!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michelle thank you for your nice words and congratulations again for such a nice family Hope seeing all of you soon All my best Sergio

Sergio is an outstanding guide. He led us through many of the most important Roman ruins on this walking tour and kept us entertained while providing us with a massive amount of information about each location on the tour. It was very hot during our tour, so Sergio kept us in the shade most of the time and stopped often for small rest periods and water refills at the many public fountains. It was clear that Sergio has a passion for Roman history and his city of residence. I highly recommend Sergio .

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Leonardo ciao hola Pilar, hope you’re doing very well and had a good time at the ceremony by st Patrick Thanks for your nice words: it has been a great pleasure for me being your guide and buddy here in Rome Hope to meeting you again soon All my best Sergio G

We had a wonderful tour of the Colosseum and Forum area with Sergio! There are tons of things to see but a great guide, such as Sergio, knows the best and most meaningful sites and tailors their tour route accordingly. Sergio showed us some amazing sites and told us the history and stories behind those sites. My youngest daughter is particularly interested in Roman mythology and Sergio did a fantastic job answering her many questions and encouraging her to ask more!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Peter, thanks I forgot to ask you if you are related with the Rubinstein composer and piano player..? Hope to get your answer directly here in Rome on another tour All my best Sergio G

Sergio was wonderful. A very pleasant experience exploring the "must do" tourist sights as well as wondering off the beaten path. His insights into the many many layers of history as we strolled along really made Rome come to life for me. Pizza and a beer after the first two hours really hit the spot, and it was nice to see Sergio's choice for pizza after all the tourist traps we had walked past.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Coy thanks for your nice words This is your second time in Rome: here we say: “non c’è due senza tre”.. meaning “the second is followed by a third”, so let’s hope to meeting again, may be visiting the Alban Hills with Castelgandolfo, Tivoli and Frascati or the Ancient Port of Rome: Ostia Antica All my best Ciao Sergio G

Oh Sergio! This is the second time we have used Sergio. Both times at the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica. He is knowledgeable and fun and patient. He is clever and witty which makes for a fun and very real tour. We had to wait in a line as we could not get Skip the Line tickets on the day we went. He was early and waited in the line with us all the while regaling us with stories and history. He is a kind, sweet, patient, fun grandfatherly type who tell story after story. I will definitely use him again

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Wendy, thanks As you remember I was a little concerned about going to the Vatican Museums on the last Sunday of the month when is open but not bookable But we made it and yes,it was a nice experience mostly because of you guys being patient and nice waiting in line and in the sun almost two hours!! I do really hope we’ll meet again and have some other fun educational experience together..:-) All my best Sergio G

This was the second time I've used Sergio in Rome. He was just as wonderful and knowledgeable today as he was the first time. He was delightful both with my ailing and slow mother as well as my (sometimes disengaged) 13 year old nephew. I would give him 6 stars if I could. Thank you Sergio!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Kim, thanks In Rome we say: non c’è due senza tre (ask Heather the translation..something like: there no two without a three) meaning..hope to see you again a third time.. Say ciao to all your nice family All my best Sergio G

Sergio combines the talents of a communicator with the knowledge of a well respected historian of his native city. Along with our driver Simone, the pair made our "Roman Day" a lifetime memory. Our group of 4 adults and 3 teenagers was a challenge, but Sergio and Simone made our visit a smooth, well coordinated and educational/entertaining visit to Rome, the Vatican. and Amphitheater Flavius.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gregory thanks for your nice and very welcome words Hope to seeing you again soon All my best Sergio G

A good tour of a period of Roman art which we would probably have missed, or glossed over, without Sergio's guidance. We covered a lot of ground, and got to see stuff which definitely lay outside the standard itineraries for Rome. Sergio was engaging, clear and informative throughout.

We spent three fantastic days with Sergio, seeing the highlights of history and art in Rome. He knows his Roman history and is able to bring to life the ruins of the Forum and the Colosseum. We enjoyed visiting the major squares and fountains of the city, and especially the Vatican Museums and the ancient baths. Sergio made it all current and relevant with his commentaries and stories.
