Davidd was our driver and tour guide he was prompt and very professional during the entire tour. This was our second time to visit Rome, our last visit was limited and we were not able to visit the sites we wanted to. This is the best way to get around Rome. Having your own driver and vehicle makes it easy to get to the sites, and did not have to worry about finding a parking space or long walks. We were dropped off right at the entrance to most sites. We set the time frame for visits at each sites, that way we could spend as much time as we wanted to really explore the sites and get a good understanding about the Rich History at each site. Our driver Davidd also recommended a local place for lunch, and when we arrived we had a table waiting for us. The food and service was excellent. We have taken many tours mostly in groups, but having your own private driver and vehicle is the best way to see the sites you want to see on your schedule. I would highly recommend this tour. .

This was an awesome tour! Would suggest to anyone. We were able to go where we wanted and customize as we went. The first thing in the morning our driver, Alessandro, asked what we wanted out of the tour. We were able to visit many places and he even had us at St Peters Square at noon, we were able to here the church bells ring. Beautiful! My son wanted pizza so Alessandro took us to a place he likes to go, not a tourist trap. It was wonderful. We ended the tour at the place I asked, the Pantheon! He dropped us back off at our hotel. This was our last day of a 3 week European trip, what a wonderful end!

Our driver was Damiano. He took us all over Rome to the Christian sites we wanted to see. He told us a little about each one and then parked us as close as possible. He gave us a certain amount of time to visit each location before returning to him. He took us to a great local place for lunch. We really enjoyed this tour. We spent about 6 hours on the tour, but could easily have spent 8 and taken longer in each church.

We went on a Sunday and because it was a private tour we were able to hit things at the perfect time, meaning no lines anywhere at all. The catacombs were inspiring and the churches marvelous. Our tour guide was Max. He was very informative and talked to us like friends. We had a stop at St. Peter's on the list but because the Pope was speaking we told him we would much rather see the Pantheon as it was our last day in Rome and we had yet to see it. Though it wasn't on the list he took us there and gave us tons of information. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone

This was a truly wonderful and personal tour. Damiano was an amazing tour guide who took our interests and questions to heart. He was very informative and went out of his way to make our tour special. He was truly a gentleman, made us feel at ease and welcomed any questions. He provided amenities to make our trip very comfortable, such as special pastries, and cold bottled water. We were interested in pizza for a quick lunch, and Damiano enhanced the experience by bringing us to a local town shop which had excellent pizza. He also brought us to a couple of unexpected locations special to our interests. One location provided a special view of the Vatican, and the second was a visit to a chapel along the Appian Way where Jesus met St. Peter. Damiano also went out of his way to obtain beautiful post cards from this chapel without our asking. In addition to all this, the tour of all the sites was excellent. Damiano explained all the historical background. It was truly a wonderful experience thanks to our excellent tour guide, Damiano!
