TESTIMONIALS

  • Rome Discovery Family Tour

    I was just about to write to you to let you know how happy I was with your tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, very patient (with my 2 very young kids) and very interesting. We had a lovely morning and would definitely recommend your company to others. We came across your company while looking online for a tour guide. We are happy we found you.
    All the best

    Hi Ann
    I just wanted to provide some feedback about our Ancient Rome tour from today. Our guide Luciana was exceptional. She pitched the information perfectly to the children and used humour to keep them interested. She went out of her way to research a Gluten Free restaurant for us and we had the most delicious Gluten Free Pizza and Tiramasu for our lunch.
    Please send on our thanks to her as she made today on of the highlights of our trip to Italy.
    Kind regards
