My brother in law booked 2 walking tours for our 2 families of 4 adults and 6 kids ranging in age from 16 -6 years of age.We had the pleasure of meeting Marta on the first tour for our visit to the Vatican museums.Marta was fabulous! She quickly captured our kids attention with her knowledge and she tailored the visit to our kids. As she walked she would talk to them to on different levels based on their ages and had no problem answering the million questions they all came up with ! The second day we met her at the Colosseum early for another fun, knowledge filled tour.Marta was fabulous with the kids and kept everyone interested.HIGHLY recommend you ask for her if travelling as a family.

We love Silvia and her team! Luca was fabulous! Chuck, Ethan, Ben and I all enjoyed our time with him. Luca is very friendly, knowlegable and relatable. He draws you in and keeps your attention. Luca’s command of the English language is superb. My whole family adored Luca. We all learned so much from him. If we ever return to Rome we will be contacting Silvia for additional tours and we will also help spread the word about A Friend in Rome!

We cannot speak highly enough of Valentina and Silvia from A Friend in Rome. First, thank you to Silvia for answering all our my many questions and setting us up with the perfect tour guide (Valentina) for our morning tour of Ancient Rome. You listened to our needs and although you'd be on holiday while we would be in Rome, you gave the us the perfect guide for our family. Valentina, you were amazing. You were incredibly knowledgeable, very descriptive, kind, and patient. Excellent job! We enjoyed it more than words can say.

We used A Friend in Rome for 8 days straight. In Pompei and also in Rome. Every guide was amazing and knew their stuff as if they were PH D professors with a good personality. This was our 20th anniversary and they made this an amazing experience that will stay with us for a life time!

Our short visit to Rome was transformed into a wonderfully enjoyable and educational experience thanks to Sylvia and her team and expert tour guides. Thanks to them we were able to not only visit, but really understand, the historic significance of the key Roman sites that we wanted to experience! We really do feel that we have a friend in Rome.
