We were in Rome with 3 kids and had Evano as our private guide and driver for a 4 hour day trip to experience some of the major sites in Rome. So glad that we did this. It was perfect with kids. Evano is extremely friendly and was a great guide. We managed to cover a lot and got all the interesting information from him. The kids learnt a lot and were super happy. It wasn't tiring and extremely convenient. Would highly recommend this over any other tours with are impersonal and tiring.

We also used him for the airport transfer both ways and it worked out so well. He is very kind and helpful, just like a friend.

We were 35 adults, mostly members of a church choir from Texas on a ten day tour of Italy ending in Rome. The morning after we arrived in Rome, our final stop on the tour, our tour company back in the states had arranged for a three hour walking tour for about three hours.. We were then on our own - "free time" - to see the rest of Rome with a tour the next day that was the Vatican and our singing for a mass in St. Peters. But to dump this group in the middle of Rome at noon and assuming we could see Rome from there was impractical and impossible. We needed a way to be able to travel around to see just some of the incredible sites that Rome has to offer.

So a few months before the trip I got in contact with Ivana and DGS. With their help, they sent me a list of potential sites with explanations of what each site would have to offer. Our group had varying interests, so we divided up based on interests, so at the end of our three hour walking tour (hot and in need of some relief) we were met by five luxury Mercedes vans driven by their driver/guides equipped with bottles of cold water! After figuring out which van was which group of folks, everyone departed on their custom designed tour of Rome! We went places ever seen had it not been for Ivana and their drivers!

They timed things so that we all ended the day with a fantastic walk around the Coliseum six hours later in a then much cooler evening in Rome. Incredible!

At that point, some folks going back to our hotel while some of us were interested in a dinner and maybe a special area to explore. We were all given options, and we loaded back up, and two of our guides took 15 of us to an excellent restaurant for our dinner where we had an incredible meal in an area in which we walked around for about an hour afterward, just having a great time! What a great ending to our day! We took multiple taxis back to our hotel. We had seen more of Rome in one day than most people see in several days on any other type of tour. And we had seen what we all wanted to see thanks to the incredible driver/guides of DGS!

If you are going to Rome, regardless of your schedule, contacting Ivana and the incredible crew of driver/guides at DGS is the way to spend at least some of that time. Everyone on our tour was fascinated by Rome, and the service that we received was far beyond everyone's expectations!

I cannot say too many good things about this company. They treated us like royalty, catered to each groups interests, and even knew how to help us make the day end magically!

BOOK THEM if you can. You will regret not doing so.

The experience, with Ivano, was magnificent. His knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. He’s passionate for Rome and know every nook and cranny of this beautiful city. He took us to places with outstanding views and showed the special significance, from the eyes of a local. We will refer others to Ivano and highly recommend him for his 5 star service. Also, ask Ivano for restaurant recommendations. He knows his food!!!

This is the third tour we booked with Ivano. Of course we did some of the usuals (Pantheon, The Vatican) but this time we did some completely new things. We tried a food tour which was fantastic - really authentic stops, great food, and good value. We also visited the catacombs which were fascinating. Finally we went to Ostia Antica, which is far better than the Roman Forum if you want a glimpse into daily Roman life. Claudio was our guide there and was really patient and informative. I wish I had spent more time there.

What more can I say? If you’re in Rome and you’re not going with Ivano and Driver Guide Service, then you’re completely missing out on an amazing experience. Ivano always treats you like part of the family and always tailors the tours to your needs and wants. Bravo!

We had limited time to visit Rome and our Guide Ivano was perfectly on time at our meeting point. He showed us the highlights and was very well informed. He knows his way around so no need to queue! We managed to visit Rome in 4 hours and we arrived on time in the airport at the correct gate, what a treat! I highly recommend Ivano!

We only had 2 full days on our visit to Rome and had never been to Rome as a family so we decided to book a day tour to pack in as much as possible. We are so glad we did.
Ivano picked us up from our hotel at 8:55am and starting sharing his vast knowledge of Rome with us from the minute we got into his car!
We saw the pyramid, the opera, the wedding cake (where we stopped for photos), St Ignazio's church with the fascinating trompe d'ceil ceiling, Bernini's elephant statue, the Pantheon, the column, the Trevi fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Appian Way, San Callisto Catacombes, to a typical Roman restaurant for lunch, the colosseum, Capitoline hill with views over the Forum and then back our hotel at 4:20pm.
Reasons why it's worth every penny booking a tour:
1) no sore feet as Ivano has a gift for finding parking spots incredibly close to all the sights.
2) I think we saw at least double what we could have seen by ourselves in that time. And no arguing over map reading/ dragging the kids along/ getting lost!
3) Being in the car instead of the Metro meant excellent views of everything and a really good sense of our bearings around the city. The aircon was also very good.
4)No queuing all day!!! The only queue I had to wait in was the ladies toilets at the Colosseum!
5) Ivano was full of info and facts and was truly engaging. My hard to please 14 year old teenager and slightly more interested 11 year old are still talking about how much they enjoyed the day and how great it was. It was a real insight into the city's history, as well as more current affairs.
6) Your trip can be tailored to you - we asked for the catacombs and it was slotted in for us.
7) Ivano seemed to know everyone, so we had 5 star treatment in the restaurant etc.
8) Best photos...Ivano had obviously taken them so many times before he knew where to get us to stand. He also took us to particular spots for the best views and pictures.

All in all amazing! Before we went we felt it was quite an expense but the experience and memories we had made it worth every penny. We also did a 3 hour Vatican tour with Rafaela which was also exceptional. We plan to go back to Rome and maybe do a day trip to Pompeii with DGS.

What an amazing day with Ivano. This tour was recommended by my parents who have done the tour with Ivano in the past. He went out of his way to make our day perfect - minimal walking around in the heat, great food recommendations, and getting the best vantage points for the best sites. Most importantly he taught us all the important little details that made seeing the sites that much more spectacular. Can not recommend highly enough!

My family (wife and 2 teenage sons) saw Rome through a Roman’s eyes-Ivano and what an unbelievable experience! This experience was worth every single euro so if you are struggling with how to spend a day in Rome, Ivano is the guy for you! Ivano is a certified historian of the city who runs a multi-generational business that his grandfather started. He allows you to take in the sites from the moment he picks you up in a beautiful van and then proceeds to navigate through the traffic and tourist-filled city of Rome with ease. His stories, humor and personality are the best we have experienced. If you like to learn, laugh, and eat like a Roman - book this trip....you will NOT be disappointed. Ciao!
