Meeting Point Option 1

We had two tours with Romebylocals. Both were extraordinary. We did a tour of the Vatican with the Sistine Chapel (Alessandra) and a tour of the Borghese Gallery and Museum (Chiara). Both guides were very informative and well prepared for questions. They each had additional background information – both text and pictures. I had some physical limitations and both were very helpful and compassionate. A private tour is definitely the way to go. It was geared to our specific interests and at a pace that worked for us.

Emanuele runs a thoroughly professional tour group – detailed information, transportation if needed, great communication and just a generally, kind person. He went out of his way to solve my transportation issues, and was cheerful. I can’t wait to go to Rome again and Romebylocals will be the one I call.

My family and I headed to Italy for a once in a lifetime trip and Romebylocals and their guide was nothing short of Fabulous for our first tour in Rome to the Vatican and Catacombs, Pablo was so knowledgeable and pleasant to spend time with that he truly made the our tour more enjoyable then we ever could have imagined.  If you are looking for a great local tour company we highly recommend Romebylocals, you cannot go wrong!  Thanks The DeStefano Family
