“Hi there! First of all, I owe you a sincere apology for us being late, not once but twice. I promise that we did leave on time, but I would definitely suggest a firm address on a meeting place to help. We were using cabs and then had to sprint to the meeting point because they didn't take us to the right place. And then of course I had a new phone number, so when you were calling me, it was going to my American number so I apologize for that. We had Enrica for both tours–I am going to send her a picture of Liza and myself!–and we just ADORED her!!!! She had so much energy, often when we did not haha, and her passion and easy delivery of the complex history was fascinating. I learned sooo much and wished that I could just tour all of Rome with her. We did the Colosseum and the Vatican tours and I think that the Colosseum/Roman Forum was my favorite. Enrica really brought the ruins to life and while I was definitely hot and tired from the day, I was not bored in the least. After some gelato, we were mostly recovered and able to continue on to the Colosseum. :) I have no suggestions for improvement and want to thank you for an incredible experience in Rome! ” see lessAugust 26, 2016 Rebecca

“For our Underground Colosseum tour, Federica was a wealth of knowledge and her tour was informative and pleasurable. Then for our Early Entrance Vatican, Mario was very knowledgable about the history of Christianity and how it was reflected in the art of the times. He was informative and navigated our group through the crowds seamlessly so as to make efficient use of our time. ” see lessAugust 25, 2016 Sharon Rafaloff and Harvey Gersten

“As usual, never disappointed with TET. This is our 4th tour with you during one visit to Florence and 3 to Rome over the last 8 years or so. Federica was terrific cramming 3000 years of Rome history into 4h. That takes incredible command of the literature of Rome and its art. Despite my insistence not to she paid for a cab to shorten our trip back to Nonna Bettta in the Jewish section, where we dined with her, from our last tour stop at Castel Sant’Angelo. It's great to have someone who speaks Italian, esp. to get a cab! Even though we can usually get around in Rome without it, it helps to make everything much smoother. Much appreciated, Federica! One can never get the full story of Rome. So many different historical perspectives written by the most reliable historians, there are still many different ones. Federica was conversant in the few perspectives I was familiar with and she expanded my knowledge and understanding by adding more perspectives (e.g., the Italian perspective of Mussolini's preservation efforts of Roman antiquities which I inquired about and she eagerly expounded - wow!). The highlight of the tour for me, though, was the detail (those secrets) that vividly colored the places we visited, many I had visited before, but the take was different. Loved the details she provided of the forum and Capitoline Hill from the balcony of Basilica of Santa Maria Aeracoeli as well as the inside of this often ignored cathedral (never been inside - spectacular). Also loved the detail provided of the papal apartments in Castel Sant' Angelo. Things people just walk right by, having no idea of the history within. Federica was brilliant including the historical and always present contradictions of the Papacy both early (embraced the Saints of Catholicism publicly and Paganism privately) and in the later periods (Martin Luther's attacks on the Catholic Church) to the present (ubiquitous immorality of the priesthood) but, as I commented to her, never failing to be the great uniters, despite all the contradictory behavior, under the banner of Christianity. Fantastic job, Federica and best to you and your future husband. He's getting a winner! ” see lessAugust 25, 2016 Jeff and Ann Buchanan

“I fancy myself an educated man. After listening to Mario casually and elegantly speak with such confidence on a myriad of different subjects over the course of six hours, I am greatly humbled. My fiancee and I could not have been more pleased by tour. The small group worked well and by the end of the day I felt like we were all friends. Mario's interest in the subject is best described as a "child-like fascination." I find that to be the best kind of interest. Mario can't learn enough and can't wait to tell everyone what he as learned. If you are looking for the "how and the why" and not just the "what" by all means book Mario and Through Eternity Tours. ” see lessAugust 23, 2016 Ryan and Jackie
