We had such an amazing experience with our tour guide Daniella from Icon tours. We did 3 different private tours in Rome and loved all of them. She gave us just the right amount of information and was never overwhelming. We skipped all the crazy line ups as well. I highly recommend this.

We had a 3 hour private tour with Daniela who guided us through the Ghetto and Trastevere in May. She was delightful and knowledgeable, pointing out many aspects of geography, architecture and culture that we could not have appreciated just using a guide book. The tour also helped orientate us in central Rome which was invaluable in planning the rest of our stay, including useful tips for restaurants and coffee bars and so on. The tour was quite expensive but well worth the cost.

Daniela took my wife and I on two private tours of Rome. One, of the Vatican, Vatican museums and St. Peter's. The other of key sights in ancient Rome, including the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Colliseum and the Roman Forum.

Daniela is so good at what she does. She brought the ancient city and Vatican alive for us. She is very warm and engaging and absolutely full of knowledge about the city. She made our stay in the eternal city a memorable one.

We will ask for her again on future visits to the city.

We took the private Vatican Museum/Sistine Chapel/St. Peter's Basilica and Ancient Rome/Colosseum Tours on 2 separate days with Daniella from Icon Tours. We learned so much and had such a good time with her. She is an expert on art, history, artists and Roman culture. She's well spoken and knowledgeable, but keeps things interesting, which is key in a city filled with so much history and art. She's also very talented at weaving through the tourist traffic in the Vatican Museum and Colosseum, making the best use of our time and saving us from claustrophobia. Our trip would not have been the same without Danellia. I highly recommend a private Icon Tour for anyone who goes to Rome. You won't regret spending the money. Our Icon Tours were the best we had on our three week trip.

Best tour from our 23 day Europe trip! My wife and I plus our three tween/teen boys were thrilled with the tour. And we can't say enough great things about our guide Dannie! She was fantastic and made the day loads of fun for the entire family. She was well prepared, had great visual aids, and she knew how to keep us on track and moving efficiently through the hoards of tourists. And, of course, she is a great student of Rome and infused the tour with knowledge, passion, and keen insight. I would highly recommend this tour!
