Thank you, Giovanni, our Roads To Rome tour guide, for making our 2-day Rome adventure a wonderful experience! With your extensive knowledge of history and archeology as well as perfect English, our tours of St. Peter's Basilica, Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa were highly informative as well as fun! Dominic and I highly recommend you. We hope to meet you... More

I took two tours with Giovanni and, as a history buff, they were the highlights of my visit to Rome. Our first tour was of Ostia Antica where Giovanni gave an excellent tour of this ancient city. He ensured that we saw all of the highlights: the theater, temples, forum, baths, and residential areas. His knowledge of the history of... More

Hello Cara, I'm happy you liked so much your tours of Ostia and the Appian Way; I have to say that if you and your friends were not such amazing customers I would not have done such a good job. It was a real pleasure to go around with guys who know so much about history, archaeology etc; you really... More

Giovanni thank you from both of us for a wonderful and informative tour of the Vatican Museum including the Sistine Chapel. Having been to Rome two or three times a year over the last forty years I had never visited the Vatican Museum. I was quite frankly too lazy to plan a visit in advance and did not fancy the... More

Hello Andy and Susanne, I have to say that being appreciated by you really means something, since you've been in Rome so many times and you've seen pretty much all the important sights, with several guides. The Vatican Museum is an incredible sight, but it's so complex and vast that having a tour guide really makes it a lot mor... More

We took one tour with Giovanni and enjoyed it so much that we signed up for another one. Giovanni first gave us with a wonderful tour of the Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, & Four Rivers Fountain. He has all the great qualities of a tour guide--perfect english, extremely knowledgeable about ancient Rome and Italy, conveys the information in a... More

Hello Ayman, It was nice taking you and your friends around Rome. I know that you had been traveling a lot through Europe and seen many cities that you had liked a lot, and I remember you not being particularly impressed by Rome first, so I really wanted to convince you that Rome is the most beautiful and interesting, and...

We used Giovanni for a three hour tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. I couldn't imagine a better tour guide. An archaeologist by trade, Giovanni's knowledge of the sites and Roman culture/history is exceptional. He started the tour on time, answered all of our questions, and made our tour a memorable experience. His rates are very reasonable, and... More

I was struggling to find a company that would do a guided tour of Tivoli at a reasonable price. I could only find either just a driver for the day at a fair price or a driver with a guide at an exorbitant orice (as there are 2 people that need to be paid). Luckily I chanced upon Giovanni's website... More

It is my first visit to Rome and Giovanni made my visit to Vatican really unforgettable. Furthermore, his helpfulness, knowledge of history and culture, and the way of displaying information made the excursion really splendid. I definitely advise him as the best tour guide.

I had already been on a tour of Rome and with the promise of being taken to places lesser known or visited, I took Giovanni's tour too. Without telling him where I had already been, he delivered just that. He is very knowledgeable, his english is outstanding and he's definitely good company. Our tour stayed in Rome, but when I...

Thanks to Giovanni, our driver, and so much more! We had 3 adults and 3 small children going from Rome airport to the center of Florence. He was on time, enthusiastic, patient and so informative. We made several fun stops along the way, and he delivered us right to our hotel door. Excellent job.
