We used "Tom and his Team" for two morning private tours--Colosseum/Palatine Hill and the Vatican/St. Peters. The guides (different for each tour, but both named Francesca) were excellent, and spoke English well. Both had good energy and lots of interesting history to teach us. They both tailored the tour nicely to match our family (three kids, ages 10, 12, and... More

The sights were amazing to see and hear about, the beautiful works of art and the history of it all was breathtaking. As it was Easter week it was crowded, so arranging the tour and buying tickets in advance was... More

Francesco did a great job and was wonderful with our two boys (11 and 15). I would highly recommend him, especially if you have kids.

We met Ivana on the steps of the Vatican near the huge lines to enter. We had purchased a private tour (2 people), and Ivana took us immediately inside to the security line, which avoided several very long lines and saved us time for our tour. She spoke excellent English and had a very lively personality. She moved us through... More

Never met Tom but the team is first rate. We had great tours performed by knowledgeable and personable guides. The logistics were flawless and we'll remember the tours for many years to come. Three cheers for Maria and Ivana, and their guiding company.
