I contacted A Friend in Rome about a private tour of ancient Rome during our 2.5 day visit to the city. Sylvia was not available, but arranged for us to tour with Veronica. Communication prior to the tour was seamless. We met Veronica at a prearranged spot. As recommended, we had pre-purchased our Colosseum tickets. She entered with us, providing... More

We scheduled 5 tours, with three different guides; Riccardo, Ennio, and Valentina while on vacation in Rome. Silvia did an amazing job scheduling my tours, and even followed up during my stay in Rome to ensure I was happy with my tours. I would not only recommend scheduling tours with "A Friend in Rome", I am already thinking about my... More

At her suggestion (which was brilliant), we spent our first day in Rome on a 6-hour Vespa tour with Sylvia Prosperi, a wonderfully knowledgeable, thoughtful, and friendly guide. I cannot think of a better way to get oriented to the Eternal City and cover a lot of ground, while also staying cool on a hot day! Sylvia showed us so... More

I booked a tour of Ancient Rome for our family of four with two kids 9 and 12. We all enjoyed the tour and it was a highlight of our two week trip to Italy. Silvia was an excellent guide that exceeded my expectations. She personalized the tour and kept the kids interest throughout the 4 hours. Silvia is definitely... More

Our family of 4 arrived in Rome on a very hot afternoon with only a 1/2 day to experience some of Rome. We knew if we didnt arrange something structured the time would pass quickly and we would be disappointed at not having seen more. We arranged a 3 hr tour with Sylia with a request to do something different... More

Sylvia was an excellent tour guide. She guided me and my husband for two days (about 6 hours total.) She was knowledgeable and friendly! We would both reccommend her to anyone looking for a tour guide in Rome. We did

The challenges of arriving into a bustling city late the night before quickly disappeared once we met Silvia for a 4 hour tour of Rome. We only had the one full day to spend in Rome before moving north, so needed to make the most of our time, whilst still keeping our two teenage kids (12 & 16) engaged and... More

We only had 1 full day to visit Rome and wanted to make the most out of it with our four young kids. Sylvia was easy to communicate with via email from Canada and joined us right at our Rome hotel to start our walking tour. She was the perfect host for us, leading and taking cues from the kids...

My wife and I were recommended 'A Friend in Rome' by a work colleague and we were not disappointed! We were in Rome on a city break and so time was a major factor, the 4 hour tour was great and our guide Arianna was very knowledgable about everything, not just the fantastic places on the tour but ideas for...
