I think I actually sent you a note when we got back thanking you for arranging for us to have Katherine as a guide. The tour was excellent and we had a wonderful morning. Katherine made the tour quite special and we enjoyed her company as well as her informative guiding. She was most helpful in telling us about local eateries. We were glad to get to the catacombs and we were taken to a few spots where the views were spectacular. It made our stay in Rome even better.
We were in Rome the second week of August and enjoyed the Children's Tour of Rome with Kasha (Katherine). She is wonderful and I am expressing the opinions of our 16, 15, 14, 12 and 10 year-old children. They have been on several city tours in different cities and felt she was the most engaging, knowledgeable and likeable of all. She provided historical and anecdotal tidbits about the various neighborhoods through which we traveled and was flexible to our wishes. Her passion for antiquities is contagious as she shares her perspectives and information. I cannot commend her enough.
Thank you for the email. I have nothing but complete praise for both of your tour guides. We had such a wonderful time and the guides were so full of knowledge and patience. The bus was also a huge hit. Traveling as a large group can sometimes be very challenging, but the air conditioned, spacious bus was worth every penny! I only thing I felt a little worried about was in my booking. Although Jessica you were so helpful, it made me nervous to do everything by email and not speak to you directly. However, there was clearly nothing to worry about because the guides were on time, cheery, very kind, and very smart. It will forever be an imprint in my children's mind about Rome! The tours were wonderful, I wouldn't change a thing!!!!!!
Thank you so much!!
Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. Rome was one of the favorite places we visited on our trip due largely to our favorite tour guide, Luciana!! Luciana was really nice and she gave us a lot of interesting facts about Rome. We really enjoyed our Full-Day Tour of Rome with the Vatican and we also enjoyed our Kid Friendly Tour as well. It was nice to have an air- conditioned van and basically have it all to ourselves. I realize that there wasn't much time to see everything, but I would have liked to see more. I guess we'll have to go back some day and see the rest!! Thanks again for the enjoyable tours and I was sure glad to find "In Italy" online because it offered the best tours of all the tour companies we researched!! The whole family liked Rome and thought it was one of their favorite places on our trip!!

We had a wonderful experience in Rome. I must say that one of the highlights of our trip was the kid-friendly tour. Luciana was patient, understanding and told us many interesting facts during the tour. We congratulate and thank her for making our experience an unforgettable one.
We had an absolutely fantastic time in Italy, thanks. We thoroughly enjoyed our Kid-Friendly tour. The driver and guide were on time and ready to go. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun, and really went out of his way to make the tour interesting for our kids. As well, he asked if they had been to a lot of churches in the past days and weeks, and when we said yes, he suggested that they might enjoy the Pantheon more than the basilica we were booked for. He gave us the option to change, and we're glad he did!
Thanks so much for offering such a great service for travelling with kids!
We just returned from a week in Rome and used In Italy for most of our trip. We had two children (11 and 14) which required some thought to make the trip successful. We were thoroughly satisfied with all of the services that you provided.
Peter Z. was our guide for the Catacombs. He did a great job of describing the complex relationship between the Romans and the Christians and the Church of St. Clement was a highlight. The children really liked the Catacombs.
Thanks for the great service. We will recommend In Italy to others.

Thanks for your e-mail. Our trip to Italy was wonderful, and the Kid-Friendly Rome tour more than met our expectations. Our guide, Jody, was very helpful, energetic and flexible in showing us and the kids various sights in Rome we had wanted to see. She customized our tour to make sure we got to see those things we were most interested in. In a case of small-world coincidence, she is from the same part of the San Francisco Bay Area, and even attended the same high school as one of our kids. That was an unexpected, fun connection to make.
All in all, we had a great time (despite the heat) and would definitely take advantage of your services when we plan our next trip.
