Our family spent 3 amazing days on a private tour with Vincenzo! We toured all of the major sites but most importantly did so in a highly skilled manner. Vincenzo minimized crowd exposure at one point flipping a day itinerary to ensure the 20 cruise ships headed for the Vatican would not cross paths with us! His itinerary planning was precise yet flexible, touring in an order that ensured venues were not temporarily closed for Sunday services. Most importantly though was the manner in which Vincenzo shared with us his passion for this beautiful city. His outstanding knowledge and love for history, art, and everything Roman was relayed in a clear, concise, fun, engaging, and masterful manner! The kids were thoroughly mesmerized by Vincenzo's story telling capabilities, he is an expert in involving young and old and transporting us back in time as the events unfold. We learned a tremendous amount and simply can not recommend Vincenzo and Rome guides enough. We witnessed many other tour groups that plodded along with their monotone tour guide and our group was stopped many times by participants in other tours that had watched Vincenzo and his animated and engaging style and were now interested in hiring him! If you want to experience Rome as it should be experienced - learning the rich history and feeling as though you are being transported back in time to see, hear and feel this amazing city, BOOK VINCENZO and Rome Guides NOW!!!! You too will experience the magic of Vincenzo! Thank you Vincenzo we will never forget your amazing city!

‘I did the tour of Trastevere with Rome guides and it was an extraordinary experience. Vincenzo guided us through the latest streets and into the most important churches of Trastevere. We could admire the works of Pietro Cavallini and Gianlorenzo Bernini as well as the traditions of this very carachterostic neighborhood of Rome. 2 Hours went really quickly and we had a fantastic time. I really recommend this tour.

Every single ruin comes to life with their explanation and you will be involved in Ancient Rome as in a movie. Thanks for everything!!! See you for another adventure.

A few days with Vincenzo was a very special treat. His dynamic presentation style coupled with a knowledge of history and culture made for a memorable few days. His wonderful voice made it easy for us to hear even in crowded venues. His tall stature made us feel safe. He proved a thoughtful curriculum which make each day special. An afternoon with Martina at the Borghese gallery was also wonderful Her knowledge of the art coupled with an understanding of the history politics and culture were impressive. These are very specially people who made our vacation Most memorable.

We took 5 private tours with Rome Guides, 4 with Vincenzo.
His style is unique and wonderful. It is as though you are in a private, interactive, superbly choreographed travelogue. It would surely be a Travel Channel hit. Vincenzo has a carefully thought out and well researched agenda which he communicates enthusiastically and dramatically( but it is not over the top). Each of our tours had different topics and themes. We learned and we laughed. We were challenged to think and, by then end of our time with him, understood far more about Rome than we could have hoped for.
After 20 plus years of often guided travel with many highly ranked guides, I would rank him the very best.

Martina gave us only a single tour, The Borghese Gallery. It was a wonderful thematic tour during which we gained a much greater understanding of the works of Italian masters,learning how to interpret them and their context. I only wish we had had time for another tour with her.

My wife and I did a private tour with Vincenzo of the Vatican, and later that day we did the Rome By Night Tour with Martina. Didn't know until we were there that they are recently married! They're both awesome people and great guides. Vincenzo is classic Italian passion and very animated, Martina is a calm presence and has the same love for Rome's history. They both are very knowledgeable about the tour subjects and offer many entertaining details. Doing a tour with them adds fantastic depth to the sites, and we're so glad we did the tours rather than just going on our own.

Vincenzo is the best tour guide we have had and we have travelled around the world. He truly brought history to life. He walked us through the Coliseum and Forum from the perspective of a typical Roman citizen. I am not going to give away all of his secrets, but I feel better knowing that the people of Rome were like us today (liked to be entertained), the Church saved the Coliseum based on a myth, and Mussolini did one thing right. Thanks Vincenzo!

This private tour was exceptional, mainly because of Martina! She is very knowledgeable and has a fantastic way to transport you to the times where everything took place. This villa, located in Trastevere, is not very large, but has all the ingredients to make the tour worthwhile! The frescos by Raffaello are amazing, but I'm sure our great experience was enhanced by Martina's very entertaining way to deliver all the information. I've been to Rome many times and visited many beautiful places, but I know that if you want an entertaining and professional tour, you must do it with Martina or Vincenzo! Thank you for this awesome experience! We'll be back!!

My sister had recommended Vincenzo so I knew it would be good, but it was even better! Great 3 hour tour in the morning without the thousands of tourists that appear later in the day. Vincenzo is very knowledgeable and funny.

Vincenzo was awesome! He really took the time to make it very interesting. He is very knowledgeable about his city and very high energy - you can tell he loves what he does! We really enjoyed the private tour as it gave us a chance to ask a lot of questions and he gave us all his attention. Money well spent! His restaurant recommendations were great also. We would definitely recommend him!
