Ana was great. When we arrived at the Vatican she had all tickets and we were able to skip an obscenely long line. Once inside she gave us a crash course in Vatican art and history. The normally distracted kids actually paid attention and she was engaging with them. We took lots of short cuts and she pointed out things... More

Dear BPW: Thanks so much for this wonderful review. I have to tell you – some days the Vatican lines are even longer than on the day of your visit – hardly the best use of your time, and even harder to bear when you have kids in tow. That’s why I like to streamline the experience. I love working... More

Hands down the most informative and organised tour I have ever experienced. Not only did Ana prep us in a very professional manner before the tour commenced, but genuinely cared for us by making sure we had enough water before starting. Might seem minor to others, but meant a lot to us. Her passion and interest for both the history... More

Dear Xavi B: It was a pleasure being your guide, and thanks for this unequivocal recommendation. I can indeed help you with all your arrangements throughout Italy, not just your touring! You mentioned my concern that you had enough water. Even in winter touring can be thirsty work. It’s hard to appreciate monumental works of art or sites of historical... More

We did a tour of Vatican City with Ana and we cannot say enough good things! First the ability to skip all the queues is worth it's weight in gold - Ana knows exactly where she's going and you are able to weave through the masses without incident. Believe me - when you see the hoards of people you will... More

Dear Stephen: As a grown-up child myself, I look upon Rome as a combination toy store and library with a dedicated children’s room.

Dear Monocletravler: Many visitors return to Rome, and now you have too – perhaps without ever having thrown a coin into the Trevi Fountain.
