    Hi Ann,
    My apologies for being slow to follow up. I’m finally over my jet lag! Just wanted to thank you for your help in setting up our tours in Rome, Florence, and Venice. We had an extraordinary time. All of your guides were very knowledgeable, and Vincenzo, Elisabetta, and Emilio were really exceptional. Vincenzo and Elisabetta in particular knew how to engage and entertain our ten-year-old son, and their passion for history and architecture really left an impression on all of us. Would you please pass our regards along to them? Do let me know, too, whether it would be helpful to provide some more formal feedback. Thanks and regards

    We had an outstanding experience with our 3 assigned tour guides. Laura took us through Ancient Rome, Lucia through the Sistine Chapel and Elisabeta guided us over 2 days of exploration in Florence. All 3 guides were friendly, animated, knowledgeable, professional and flexible. Elisabeta in particular was almost magical in her ability to engage the 6 children (ages 4-10yo) in our group. She also helped us find great lunch places on both of our tour days. 3 of the 4 adults in our group had previously traveled to Rome and Florence, and we all learned several new things during this trip thanks to our wonderful guides.
    I would absolutely recommend your company to others.
    I believe we learned of your company on either tripadvisor or ciaobambino.
