We scheduled this trip the evening before and I am so glad we did! It is a small group tour but we were the only 2 for our trip & got a private tour of the city. The city is BREATHTAKING at night!

Our tour with Eleonora in Central Rome was fantastic. Her knowledge of the food in the area, as well as the history of the city was incredible. The 3 hours went by quickly and the food was amazing. We highly recommend Eleonora as a guide!

We were fortunate enough to tour with Massimo on a private tour. He has lived in Rome all is life and gave us insights to history and especially food that only a local would know. Really enjoyed our time.

Cool ride, very good guide with good timing for the respective stops.
