Our guide, Luca, was by far the best ever, he had all the facts and figures. An overall great experience, our best tour by far on our 17 days in Italy, Montenegro, Greece and Spain. A must do tour and ask for Luca, be prepared to be tired when finished.

A group of us was in Rome for only 2 days, so we decided to maximize our time by reserving a private tour of ancient Rome and Vatican City. Marle was our tour guide, and she was wonderful. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer, and I know we barely scratched the surface of

We had the most perfect tour of Rome. We had Thomas as our guide and he was fantastic. He was passionate and extremely knowledgeable. The private tour for our group of 4 was totally worth it. I saw many groups with 25 people and they all followed a guide who carried a flag and

Dear BrittanyCadle1, What a great review that you have put up for us about Rome in a Day with Through Eternity. Perfect Day and a Fantastic guide are always so lovely to hear about from our clients because it is what we strive to do for you. Thomas is fantastic and a pro at what he does. I am so glad that you point out something very important about what is so enjoyable when you do a private tour. It is a much more intimate experience that will be done at your pace and needs. Thomas knows how to juggle one's timing perfectly on a tour whether it be to talk about history or to graciously take photos of your family or stopping with the group for a quick coffee or a sip of wine. Please let everyone else know about us and look us up again the next time you come to Italy! Kindest Regards, Rob
