We wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful tour you provided our group (Cheryl & I, my mother and father and my two sisters) in October. As you know we were limited to only 1 ½ days in Rome since we were scheduled to depart on a two week cruise. We saw much more than we ever thought possible in such a short period of time, but we never felt rushed. You provided a wonderful tour of Rome and the Vatican.
We especially enjoyed your recommended early morning tour of the Vatican Library and the Sistine Chapel. What a treat! Our group was alone in the Sistine Chapel for 45 minutes, which allowed you to provide a wonderful commentary on all of the beautiful art displayed on the ceiling and walls. By the time the crowd began to enter the chapel, we were ready to continue the tour elsewhere. We were also amazed by how close you positioned us to view the pope as his motorcade wound its way through the large crowd in St. Peter’s Square. That close proximity allowed me to take the great photo of the pope that I sent you earlier.
Of course we also thoroughly enjoyed all of the other sites we visited with you during our brief visit to Rome. We were pleasantly surprised to find how close your driver was able to deliver us near each venue visited. This helped enormously since my mother was in a weakened state at the time. That accommodation, plus your rental of a wheelchair to be used for her as necessary, made this tour of Rome possible.
We have spoken of our trip to Rome often since October and Cheryl and I hope to return to Rome again someday and see more the sites in and near the city with you as our guide.
Based on our very positive experience, we have also passed your name along to others who may be visiting Rome.
Once again, thanks for making our trip to Rome so memorable for all of us, especially my parents, since it was a dream of theirs to visit Rome and see the main sites, especially the Vatican, St. Peter’s and the Sistine Chapel.”
