    Me and my wife went on the English language criminal tour with Fiona. The tour was highly enjoyable. We were able to see parts of Rome that we would not have discovered otherwise. The often grisly stories were captivating and, as told by Fiona, far more interesting to listen to

    Wow! Wish we could have done this tour first day in Rome since you learn so much history. Michele knew so much and shared so much history and interesting stories about what we were looking at. Too bad so many tourists walk by these places and have no idea what they just missed.
