Is best tour guide ever! Made our trip so special! Has incredible knowledge of the history of all the sights we toured. So personable, courteous, prompt and informative. Would highly recommend using Paolo!
Thanks to you and Anne for your review. Has been a pleasure to show you around cause you were both curious and well-disposed to learn new things. I'm happy that you enjoyed the off-the -beaten-track where we went at the end of our 2 day tour: Vicus Caprarius. All the best to you and Anne and hope to have you again as my clients in the future!
This was our first visit to Rome. Paolo made our experience perfect! He is organized, responsive to any special requests, and very helpful with questions and all that was before we even arrived! We visited multiple sites and Paolo was a wealth of information. I actually felt bad for the other tourists because they were missing out on what they were seeing and the history of the sites. I have food allergies and Paolo was attentive to my needs and we went to a wonderful local restaurant instead of where most tourists would go. We even had time for a couple of extra stops along the way that I’m sure other tourists wouldn’t know about. Who would think to look fo an aqueduct in a mall? I can’t recommend Paolo enough, I wish I could give him 10 stars! We travel often and he’s the best guide we have ever had! I can’t wait to come back to Rome so I can take another tour with him!
Hi Marie & Brian ! We've been togheter just yesterday and I already miss you a lot! Do you know what makes my work special? To have the chance to meet people like you: full of warmth and heartfelt humanity. From the first 30 minutes we spent together I knew you would make my day and you did indeed! I'm the one who should be thanking the two of you for having trusted your one day in Rome to me. I wish you all the relax you deserve on the cruise and hope you can come again so that I can show you some other hidden gems of my wonderful city. I wish you all the best Paolo
We spent a great day with Paolo covering all the main tourist spots plus some. I knew we would be jet lagged and I thought it would be helpful to have the day planned and someone else who was thinking through all the tickets, timing, and directions. Paolo planned a wonderful day and managed to keep the entire family engaged for 8 hours -- that's no small feat on a very hot day with 15,000 steps! He engaged adults and kids alike with stories and questions and was truly a pleasure to be with. I would definitely recommend him and this tour!
Thanks Monica for your kind words. Has been really inspiring for me to show around the city to you and your wonderful family. Your kids impressed me for their maturity and upbringing and it's always a pleasure to have clients like the four of you, eager to know some hidden stories of off-the-beaten track spots. Thanks again for everything and .....ciao!!!!
