My boyfriend and I were referred to Tess by some friends who had gone on a tour with her the year before, and they did not steer us wrong. Tess has a way of bringing ancient history to life in the most exciting way. Maybe if she was my history teacher in high school, I would have paid better attention!... More

This was my second Clam Tour -- this time with Tess. I had very high expectations -- since Sam had been exceptional, the bar was high. Tess more than met those expectations. We spent two half days with Tess during a very rainy time in Rome. It could have been a 'wash-out'. But not with Tess. Her enthusiasm and intellect... More

I highly recommend Tess Amodeo-Vickery as a tour guide for Rome. My wife and our three teenagers spent a half-day with her at the Vatican and another half-day touring Ancient Rome during the weekend before Thanksgiving. Tess is the complete package. She effortlessly uncovers the secrets of Rome, has a great depth of historic knowledge, and an infectious love of... More

Tess made our trip to Rome. She is a brilliant, highly articulate and learned scholar, despite her tender age. She was able to engage our three children (11, 9 & 9) through her storytelling and brought the ancient city to life. She eruditely answered their many questions and kept them in rapt attention as she deciphered for us the significance... More

My parents and I went on a couple of half-day guided tours with Tess through the Colosseum/Forum and the Vatican. Her education in the classics and art history provided a depth of knowledge to her storytelling that very much impressed us. She was great at pointing out the little things we wouldn't have noticed on our own and recounting the... More

Tess gave us a wonderful orientation to Rome on her walking tour. Not only did Tess arrange a car to pick us up at the airport, but she also made a lunch reservation for us that was close to our hotel and then met us there for her tour to begin. It was a great way to start off our... More

My boyfriend and i visited Rome in early September and spent a wonderful half day with Tess. She did a great job explaining the history of Ancient Rome and keeping us engaged. Tess also took the time to follow up with us after the tour was over and gave us some wonderful restaurant recommendations (Dar Poeta and Antico Arco). I... More

We were referred to Tess at CLAM by a friend, and I emailed her just a few days before with a very broad sketch of what I wanted to do with my son. She was extremely professional, even arranging a car pickup for us from the airport to our hotel. We spent the first day in the afternoon with a... More

If you're looking for an intimate and in-depth tour of Rome, led by a professional with warmth, charm, vast knowledge and ease, I am thrilled to recommend Clam Tours and Tess in particular! Following her first year of Latin, I brought my 14 year old daughter to Rome for the first time, on a mother-daughter trip. We returned yesterday. In... More

A good friend recommended that I contact Clam Tours for my family's visit to Rome, and I'm happy to share that recommendation here. I traveled with my wife and two kids, ages 13 and 11, to a city that is incredible but also potentially overwhelming. Tess met us at our apartment when we arrived; showed us around our local neighborhood... More
