Alessandra was terrific! She provided the children with a historical foundation to understand Ancient Rome and the purpose and significance of the Colosseum and Forum. Her stories and pace kept the children engaged but did not dilute from the quality of the content shared. We found her to be kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. We would love to take another tour with her. The only thing about the tours that is a con how expensive they are…if they were more affordable we would book multiple on each trip.
In short, Dony is a fantastic storyteller. All of our four kids (ages 10, 13, 15, 17) were eager to see the Colosseum however, none were more excited than our 10 year old. On this trip we went to three different European capitals, and saw so many things, but for him, the most exciting part was the Colosseum. This excitement increased exponentially due to Dony’s ability to tell the story regarding the creation and uses of the Colosseum. We are so glad that we had Dony as our guide. We also really appreciate the wonderful photos Dony took of us throughout the tour. His charisma had all of us in ear-to-ear smiles (hard to get from kids at 9am!) Thank you Dony!
We thought Dony was amazing. He was patient and kind and knew so much. We really enjoyed the tour and we highly recommend him.
