I can't even begin to say how happy we were with Mauro! It is so hard to cover Rome in a day as a ship excurison but he did this and even made time to shop which was on our list and the perfect picture spots! We all enjoyed our time with him and he made us feel like we had known him forever. We will HIGHLY recommend him to all our travel friends, I could not have hand picked anyone any better. We will be back to cover the spots we missed and call on you when we come!! Thanks for a perfect day Mauro
