Dony was engaging, incredibly knowledgeable, passionate and told memorable stories. He brought all that we said into our understanding of today - such as the negotiations of Ostia Antica being like Wall Street. Or the "fast food" of the place being like McDonald's. These are stories we'll remember and share with friends. What went right - was on time, great driver, clear communication. At the end, we got a bonus by being dropped off at a different location and Dony gave a brief history of the area as we set out to walk back to our apartment. No changes to recommend.
Alessandra was a pleasure to be with. She was extremely knowledgeable. My daughter and I felt very comfortable speaking with her overall. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
Livia was the best guide I have ever had--and I have done quite a few, and not those cheap big group ones. Her enthusiasm (very important), her willingness to tell the story and communicate, her passion, her knowledge and just her personality were fantastic. But really, 3-4 hours are not enough at Ostia. Please consider extending the tour to a full-day! Livia was the expert who actually worked on the site and I wish we could have gone the whole place together.
