Amazing Guide!!

Diego was fun, organized, provided great information, and was easy to understand. He knew his subject and made history come alive with his vivid description and explanations. He carefully kept the group together and offered alternatives for those who were unable to climb steep Coloseum steps or Palatine Hill. We had a bit of a late start due to some late arrivals, and were given a generous 3 1/2-hour or longer tour. We had other guides during our stay in Rome, but none compared to Diego and we wished we could have had him for our entire 4 days!!

Excellent tour. Giorgio most well informed and entertaining about all the wonderful places we visited : the Colosseum, the Palatine and the Forum while pacing his delivery to the needs and interest of the whole group and recognising and interacting with each of us individually. And he didn’t lose any of us. Quite a feat with all the competing tour groups around.

Firstly, a mension for our guide Renata, who was incredible. She’s extremely knowledgeable, pleasant, and attentive throughout. She understands group dynamics, and keeps control very well. The itinerary is fantastic. The Roman Forum, Colle Paladino and the Colosseum are all hugely significant in Roman history. We never felt rushed and plenty of time was given for photographs and questions. There was practically zero wait time for the Coliseum and we loved the opportunity to see it from arena level as well as from the upper levels. Hugely recommended!! Thank you Renata.
