Cecilia was excellently prepared and guided us through a museum we knew nothing about prior. What we learned it that is an often overlooked treasure. As we learned and expressed our interests Cecilia adapted the tour so that our interests were always included as she moved us through a gallery that would have otherwise have been overwhelming. She focused us on the most important works, provided cultural and historical background and explained how the artwork we were seeing with her was connected and influenced other key masterpieces. She is wonderful.
Cecília was a wonderful guide, super knowledgeable about history and so many interesting facts about the artwork in the museum . We learnt a lot in this great tour. Thank you so much Cecilia !!
Our tour with Richard was outstanding. We met up with him a little before our scheduled time and he began the tour right away. He was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and interesting. He was very engaging and guided us through Roman history and highlights of the Capitoline museum in a very thorough and entertaining way. He spent over 3 hours with us and the time flew by. We learned a great deal in a thoroughly enjoyable way. He even recommended a great restaurant for lunch.
