On my cousin’s recommendation (she had used her last summer) we hired Tess for a day and a half private tour. We are a family of four including an 18 year old boy and 14 year old girl. We had advised Tess in advance that we wanted high energy (not a lot of museums) tour and that walking was not... More

My husband and I spent 2 half days with Tess this fall after meeting and touring with her in a 2013 visit to Rome. She is wonderful, entertaining and smart. We sampled food spots, headed to off the beaten path spots and thoroughly enjoyed her company as well as Rome. We have visited Rome many times over the years so... More

My husband and I were fortunate to have our son book a day with Tess visiting the Roman sites in the ancient city. We enjoyed the tour tremendously; Tess met us at our apartment and had the day planned beautifully, including a great restaurant for lunch. We were both impressed by the breadth of interesting insights she offered to the... More

My husband and I traveled to Rome (our first visit) in November 2014, and on the advice of a friend, booked time with Tess, of Clam Private Tours. By way of background, we have visited about 10 different European cities in the past 5 years. Our approach is generally the same - spend about 4-5 hours walking the city by... More

We had an excellent, high-profile tour given by an art graduate student who was also incredibly nice. She also took us to nice cafés and shops. Highly recommended!

My law partner told me that if we were going to Rome, we HAD to tour with Tess. He is a smart and discriminating guy, so we followed up on his recommendation - even though we usually shy away from tours, preferring to explore and study the area on our own. He was right. The half day we spent with... More

Sixty 5 star reviews - what more can I say? This was our first trip to Rome and in such a large city with so many things to see and do we would not have accomplished half of what we did had we not been with Tess. We did 2 1/2 days of touring with her and saw most of... More

i spent two amazing 1/2 days with Tess walking through Rome. The first was a sunset tour walking the historic center enjoying the history of the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Spanish steps along with a few of her hidden gems followed by a delicious dinner. The next morning we did a walking tour of Palatine Hill, Roman Forum & the Colosseum... More

Took cruise line's coach to Rome where we met Tess who was waiting patiently as we tried to text her our whereabouts (big mobile phone dysfunction on our part!). Chose Tess from the... More

We spent 2 wonderful half days with Tess. She is a fount of knowledge, friendly beyond belief, and will go out of her way to ensure that you learn what you want to learn, see what you want to see, and enjoy this fabulous city. We had a larger than normal group for her, 4 kids ranging in age from... More
