        Irene was amazing! She is so kind, warm, knowledgeable and all around wonderful. She showed me Rome through her eyes while still prioritizing my interests and what I wanted to see. Honestly, I felt like I was spending the day with a friend. This was a 10/10 experience and I highly recommend booking this with Irene!

        Orfeo was a wonderful guide, and we lucked out by having his fiancée along for the walk. Orfeo is getting his PhD, and Natalie is also incredibly intelligent, and like Orfeo, was an expert in art history. We had asked that we skip the usual big tourist attractions because we had been to Rome in the past; we wanted to see places that were more off the beaten track. This ended up to be a great idea because we have never seen Rome so crowded. We asked for a 9:00 AM start, which was great because the streets were much more quiet. Orfeo was terrific about things like telling us to look up as we were walking on a small side street and then pointing out the amazingly beautiful and incredibly old architecture of a small apartment building that had been there for centuries and had previously been a significant building. It would never have caught our eye. We learned a lot about the Bernini vs. Borromini rivalry. We saw many different neighborhoods, learned about the culture and history, mostly through various artwork. Before we knew it, it was after 1:00. My husband and I both had a wonderful time and couldn't stop talking about the tour.
