    From the beginning when I first contacted Giulio by email, he was so helpful and responsive to my questions regarding the tour I immediately knew I wanted to take his tour. I actually scheduled both a day class and a night class with Giulio and they were both wonderful! I’ll

    Dear Noma, What to say, if not that I am extremely grateful for the beautiful and heartwarming words you spent about me and my tours? I am so very glad you enjoyed so much both my company, the information provided, the teaching and, of course, all the beauty that Rome can offer!!! I must be sincere, I actually smiled as I read that you could my voice whispering in your ear as you were shooting in Paris. That is not only sweet, but also quite flattering! I do hope you took beautiful photos all along your trip to Europe, and that those of Rome will have a special quality place in your album :-) FYI, and for future references, please be aware that I have just finished fine-tuning an amazing one week photo, wine, and food tour in Tuscany, both for individuals, families and small groups, up to max 6 - 8 people. It will be an incredible feast of photography, landscapes, medieval villages, beauty, and art. It will soon be up on my website and here on Trip Advisor. keep it in mind :-) Best regards, Giulio

    Dear Kevin, Your words of appreciation, the warmth that transpires from them, the enthusiasm that comes clearly out from your review are breathtaking to me and I'll be forever grateful for such an amazing recommendation you have written, highlighting not just the photo tour per se, but also me .... as a person. You also wrote to me privately touching even more personal cords, and I am truly happy you did, because it means that, as you said, out of a simple walk a new friendship has been established, and that is the greatest reward one can have. Thanks Kevin, I do hope you'll be back soon with your family. Best regards, Giulio

    To start, organizing the tour with Giulio via email was a breeze. He was happy to meet me very early in the morning (5:30am) so we could catch the best morning light and avoid the big summer crowds. Within no time I felt like I was taking a class from an old friend...who

    Dear Belva, Thanks a lot for your great review and for the beautifl and flattering words you spent about me and my Rome Photo Fun Tours service. Well, you wrote "Within no time I felt like I was taking a class from an old friend".... let me say that I felt exactly the same way, I mean I felt really at ease with you. I guess t is because you have such a very calm and relaxed personality that everything seemed to fall perfectly into place during the tour and that made it very enjoyable and extremely easy for me to conduct it. I am actually super glad you liked the the visit inside St. Peter's church and the walk up to the dome, even though t was a sort of improvised detour from the original plan.... but I guess sometimes the best things are also the unexpected ones, right? Let me also add that I have been following you on Instagram in the recent days, at it a great pleasure, and somehow also very rewarding, to see the photos you shot during our tour in Rome... they are excellent! Brava!!!! I hope you'll be back in Rome sometime soon in the future and that you will convince your husband too to experience a beautiful photo walk in through the eternal city :-) All the best, Giulio

    Dear Jo Ann, the pleasure was absolutely mutual. It was really a terrific opportunity to show my beloved town to you and your daughter. You are both so nice and willing to know all the very many stories of Rome, its secrets and its art, that it was a true joy for me to be able to share them with you. I especially enjoyed the very frank and open conversation we had about our life experiences..... and that is an aspect of this job and these tours I run, I truly like: they enable me to meet beautiful and interesting people from all over the world, chat with them and share not only our common passion for photography, but also our own views and thoughts....and that is always enriching! Thanks again Jo Ann, and as you said, I hope our paths will cross again. Best regards, Giulio

    We booked this tour as a family to celebrate my dads 60th birthday. He is a keen amatur photographer and many of us share his interests. Giulio met us promptly and with a smile. As a group of 5 with varied levels of skill and equipment, he took time to see what each of us was

    Hello there, I am so sorry if I am replying to your beautiful and very comprehensive review only now, but for some reason it skipped my attention when it first arrived, even though I am pretty sure I answered to you privately through other communication we had. Well, in few words, thanks a lot for your very kind words and for all the joy and satisfaction they show. It was certainly a pleasure for me too meeting you and having the opportunity to walk, talk and photograph the eternal city together. I hope that sooner or later you'll come back and that we could have more tours together... or even a good beer and a nice dinner. All the very best and thanks again, Giulio
