“Best Tour Guides, made our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

First, I’d like to think we were one of Emanuela and Alex first tours :-), I’m not sure if that is true or not, but I’ll keep thinking that! We met Emanuela and Alex in 2005 while we were at the start of our honeymoon in St. Tropez. Another couple we met had just used their tour and driving services and loved them. They passed along their info and we contacted them right away. When we arrived in Florence for the next leg of our trip Emanuela and Alex were ready to show us Italy. Alex picked us up took us to Piza on the way to Rome where we were given the tour of a lifetime! Not only are they professional, knowledgeable but they are two of the kindest people we have ever met. We have referred at least 7 other couples to them and all of them have also loved them. I can’t imagine our trip to Italy without them.

Emanuela know the history of Italy like no one we have ever met before. One of the many great things about thier tours is that they will give you as much or as little information as you want and take as much or as little time as you want. They customize every tour based on your personal needs

We can’t wait to use them again.

We absolutely recommend them!

“GREAT WAY TO END OUR TRIP”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

We hired Alex for the 3 hr Appian Way Tour on our last day in Rome. It was well worth it and totally met our expectations. He was well versed in the history as we drove along Appian Way out to the Catacombs and Aqueduct. We finished at a restaurant he recommended with great food. We also hired him for the next day to airport since our cab driver when we arrived could not find our hotel and we did not want to have the same experience going back to airport in rush hour. It was nice to be treated with care. We highly recommend him.

“Simply put, the very best there is.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

I have worked with Emanuela, both privately and professionally, for almost 5 years and I cannot recommend her or her company enough – I just don’t think she has any serious competition. The Forum, Vatican, Coliseum and so much more, she will amaze you and transport you back in time with her vivid histories. Amazing subject knowledge, impeccable presentation, and classic Italian flair, incredible. I’ll see you again soon Emy…

“Simply amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

My husband and I hired Emanuela to do two days of guided tours. We saw every major sight and learned a lot from Emy. She has an incredible depth of knowledge regarding the history and architecture of Rome. She was also eager to focus on the things that interested us most. Her husband Alex was our driver. He also drove us from and to the airport. He also knows a lot about Rome, so we got a "free" tour on our way from and to the airport with Alex! We plan to use them again for future trips to Italy.

Highly recommended.

“Molto Bene, Emy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Clearly the best tour professional I have ever worked with. We spent two afternoons with her touring all the top attractions of Rome and had no lines to contend with, ever. Emanuela is a gifted, eloquent and highly intelligent lady who has one of the most difficult licenses to earn in touring, and it shows. She let us set the pace and picked out what we might want to see beyond which we had any knowledge. The touring was really fun, not one of those flag in the air things, but one-on-one dialogue and given with warmth and insight. I would highly recommend her and have already to many friends.
