“The perfect way to experience Rome”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

On a weekend break earlier this month my wife and I had a tour of the Coliseum and the Vatican on separate days. Our guide for both was Stephanie who was delightful, knowledgeable, friendly and all in all great company. It was like wandering around these two fantastic places with a friend holding a History Degree!! We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience whilst learning a lot we thought we already knew! I would thoroughly recommend this professional tour company.

I would thoroughly recommend your great company! If I think we were able to visit and to enjoy the Roman Forum during a mad rainy day, I can say I was lucky to find patient and smiling people like you. Thank you very much for your nice review. I wait for another day, to go touring together with my new friends ... and it will be a sunny day anyway :)

“Perfect Tour of the Vatican”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

Our hotel recommended taking a private tour of the Vatican and they did not disappoint. Our guide, Maria Linda knew her subject matter very well, and while we had visited the Vatican on a previous trip, her insight into what we saw made it more than worthwhile. We were even allowed to take a couple of shortcuts that prevented us from standing in some lines.

If you want to make the most of your trip to the Vatican, do yourseld a favor and book a tour with Eyes of Rome!

“Wonderful Tour with a beautiful hostess!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Elisa took us on an incredible tour! We didn't want to leave Rome without really delving into the beautiful Roman riches at the Vatican and we certainly got what we paid for. Our tour lasted 3 hours and during that time we were given a unique cultural tour. Elisa is a wonderful storyteller!

“Sara Tomassini - Superb guide”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We're a family of 4 with 2 girls aged under 10. We wanted a tour of the Vatican that would 'bring it to life' for the children. Sara was brilliant - she came down to the kids level and explained things so that they could understand. Neros Bath was a fascination that's still being talked about almost 2 weeks later!

We had Sara for 3 hours, and she tailored our tour, to show us what she thought we'd like in the given time. We didn't feel like she was rushing us at any point, and I think she must have been constantly adjusting the tour as we spent too long looking at some things. She is extremely knowledgable and was happy to take questions on anything, including some odd questions from the kids!!

I would definitely recommend Sara to anyone.

Thank you very much for your review!
I extremely love my job because every day, every tour is different, I like to know my clients and customize each tour above all for kids!
I think it's fantastic share information and emotions with them, try to see a Museum from their point of view!
I still remember the curiosity of your sweet girls and I loved it very much. So I thank you all and I wish you all the best!

“An amazing morning!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

My daughter and I spent a wonderful 3 days in Rome at the end of October. The highlight of our trip was our day with Francesco Grasso. Not only did he take us around all the ancient sites and educated us in Roman history he also directed us to the best meal of our trip! I cannot recommend him enough.
