Best of Rome Children Tour
We visited Rome in July and had Lucia as our tour guide and everything was so brilliant. Lucia was just divine with my daughters aged 10 and 12 and they now think of her as their older sister. My husband and I found her extremely charming and very knowledgeable. Lucia imparted facts to the girls in a way that they understood, were interested and remember to this day. My husband and I have been to Rome many times and we felt as though we were seeing it for the first time. Lucia is a natural!
I would recommend this tour to anyone. It was completely worth the money and we enjoyed everything about it.
Thanks again for a wonderful day.
PS My girls send their love to Lucia.

I would rank every category as excellent. We were happy with all aspects of our tour. It was a rainy day and Antonio met us with umbrellas, which we appreciated. Sylvia was friendly and knowledgeable and we all enjoyed her tour.
Thanks for the great service.
