Best Thing we did in Rome was tour with Daniella ! Shes such an energetic enthusiastic person and she has a great sense of humor! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. She brought the roman forum ruins to life for us and we were remembering her on the rest of our Italy Trip. Highly recommended.

Daniella was a fabulous guide through the Forum and Colosseum, able to put history and archeology in context for both adults and our 11 year old boy. Her method is conversational and participatory and she was able to draw our frequently reticent child deeply into the conversation by making connections and asking questions. We learned a lot, our son had fun, and we had fun watching our son have fun. When we're next in Rome, we'll explore with Daniella again.

My family and I have used Daniela Hunt of Mirabilia Urbis Tours (www.Rome-tours.com) about 10 or 12 times over the last 6 years and she is absolutely superb.

Daniella is an American ex-pat who is married to a Roman. She is very good and very knowledgeable. Her bio is impressive and she does a great job of being approachable, funny and educational. She is funny, smart, accommodating and courteous. My entire family loved the way she brings Rome to life. She doesn't just lecture. Her style is more to turn it into Q&A and games so that everyone stays engaged. She has that knack for making everything come to life whether that be for ruins (which a good tour guide is essential to fully understand everything in front of you despite how well read or studied you are) or for other sites which are more well preserved but have such a deep history that you don't want to miss all of the connections.

Daniella also incorporates the writings of the contemporaries at the time so that you get first hand views and insights instead of boring book recitations. She knows the food and restaurants of Rome (has hilarious insights into everyday Roman life right now ... and even back then), her Italian is impeccable and, obviously, her English is also. Her breadth and depth of knowledge of all things Roman is amazing whether that be regarding architecture, history, art, religion, language, culture or food is amazing.

You will be very happy with her whether you have all adults in your party or children as well (she is great at pulling kids in and challenging them to critically think about what they are seeing .... turning it into a bit of a game and capturing their attention). Her website lists her prices so you get full transparency.

My son and I had the pleasure of Daniella's company while we investigated the Roman Forum and surrounding area- superb guide, very knowledgeable, entertaining and amazingly good at humouring a rather jetlagged 8 year old. Thank you for a perfect morning in Rome and for sharing your immense knowledge with such generosity!!!. As my son said as you disappeared into the sunlit distance - IT WAS BRILLIANT!!!!!!

We took a Vatican Tour with Daniella back in March and it was fantastic! Our group consisted of ages 2-72 and this was great for any age. We enjoyed her humor and her in-depth discussions and commentary.

The next day, my husband and I went on a Forum-Palatine Tour with Daniella and our 16-year old son. He was in Latin III at the time, and she was absolutely engaging him and challenging him on his knowledge of Roman culture. He did well! We got there early in the morning and were the first ones in. It was stunning to have the whole place practically to ourselves.

Daniella gets an A++. We would definitely tour with her again!
