    Vania was great!!! We had a great time seeing sites from Baroque cathedrals to high end shopping. She took us to a great local restaurant, and we all had a delicious lunch of pasta, burata mozzarella and Tiramisu.

    Gerry was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful - we spent a very enjoyable afternoon with him in our "shopping tour" of Rome. He made sure that we went to the shops most likely to carry clothing that would be in our price range. I highly recommend him & this tour.
