We had the pleasure of booking two days with Silvia and A Friend in Rome Tours. She was the best at giving us directions and the gauge on purchasing tickets for admissions to the sights before we arrived. Her timing and communication skills were wonderful and it was truly like having a buddy take you through the city. We highly... More

Sylvia took us on a six hour walking tour of Rome. She was knowledgeable and engaging. We enjoyed the day and came away with greater insight into Ancient Rome.

We completed a tour of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill and also the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. We are a family of 6 with 4 children ranging in ages from 14 - 6 and therefore needed suitable...

On the first day of our stay she gave us a brilliant tour of the Colosseum and walked us past the Forum and talked us through it so that we could go on our own the following day.... More

We used A Friend In Rome for our trip to Rome and it was amazing. We had Veronica as a guide through the Vatican and she showed us things we never would have even understood without her. She was fantastic! The next Day we had Velario guide us through the Coliseum and then a bike ride through Rome outside of... More

We had the best experience in Rome with Silvia! Very knowledgeable and great personality! We bypassed long lines and saw everything. The experience would not have been as enriching if we had decided to forgo a guided tour.
