Our travel agent booked us "her favorite" tour guide, Stuart, for 3 half-day tours in Rome. I was worried that it might be too much for the kids (ages 12, 15) but it was fantastic. Stuart not only knows the history, he tells the story...More

Hi there. Unfortunately we are both fully booked those days, so I'm afraid I can't help you this time. We are just 2 freelance tourist guides, rather than a travel agent / tour operator. Best wishes. Have a great trip. Stuart
