Subject: Brilliant Guides!
Dear Through Eternity,
Giovanni was excellent offering insight to the complex fabric of the art/architecture we saw and its contexts. He was able to keep the students engaged and answer their questions. Very patient, insightful with great knowledge and stories to keep the students engaged and interested. They actually really wanted to have him as a guide for the Vatican and even made a point to tell him during a break how much they enjoyed his tour earlier in the week.
Ximena, who was in Aaron's group, had Giovanni for the Vatican tour and was thrilled with the in depth knowledge and information he shared. He kept it very interesting and engaging. She said he was excellent - and from her notes she definitely learned a lot!
The second group had Luca for the Vatican tour and he was extremely considerate and supportive to the students, checking in with them on how they were feeling, if they needed a small pause or break, very empathetic and sensitive to their needs. Also extremely knowledgable, he gave in depth background information on the arts and influences of the times, also keeping it interesting and engaging for the students. He was animated, interesting and incredibly informative. There was never a pause or hesitation when asked a question, he immediately had a detailed response.
Subject: Brilliant Guides at the Vatican and Ancient City
Really good - excellent. Cinzia's clearly knows her stuff and puts it across well.
Absolutely brilliant. Alessia's knowledge and passion were impressive.
Please pass our thanks to them!
Subject: Well Worth Our Time and Money
We participated in two of your tours through the USO; the Rome at Twilight with John and the 5 hour Ancient Rome tour with Caterina.
Both tours were well worth our time and money; our guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, easy to understand and personable. We will use your services again.
Subject: Antonietta was Awesome!
We recently participated in The Ancient City In-Depth Experience (Instant Access): Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with Antonietta on 11/10/2013. She was awesome!! The group size was great and the knowledge she had was outstanding. I will be recommending anyone I know traveling to Rome to check out your tours.
Subject: Like a College Archeology Course
We felt that we had received a semester of archeology and history! Giovanni is very knowledgable and has a delightful personality. We will recommend your company to others.
Subject: Wonderful tours with Katia and Francesca!
We had a wonderful experience with the Vatican tour. Katia did an outstanding job teaching and informing us of the elaborate history of the Vatican and it's associated talented figures. The tour was organized, complete, and the pace was perfect. Katia's refined, friendly nature was also a pleasure to work with. We also had a wonderful experience with the Nero Underground tour with Francesca. Despite unfortunate circumstances of not being able to tour the Palatine Hill, and Forum areas due to the strike, Francesca's resourceful nature, providing us a tour of church of San Sebastián gave us a very fulfilling experience. She was very informative, a great teacher and her warm, friendly demeanor provided a very pleasurable experience.
Subject: Anna was Exceptional!
Our Nero's Rome tour with Anna was exceptional. She was able to make the ruins come alive for us as they were in their time. She is quite an asset to you staff.
Subject: I Wish We Had More Time!
Our one day In Florence tour with your company was fantastic. Our tour guide, Angelo Alterio was very knowledgeable and informative on all the highlights that we were able to see in one day. I only wish we had more than one day in Florence but at least we got to see the highlights especially "David".
You have a great company and I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know going to Italy.
Subject: Impressed by Every Facet of the Tour
I was unable to make the tour due to a last minute illness; however, I have been there before. My daughter was on her first trip to Italy and she did the tour. She was absolutely impressed by every facet of the Nero's Rome tour including the guide, Guido. She found him to be very knowledgeable and personable. She was particularly impressed by standing in the middle of the Colosseum with only the guide and two other persons. She reflected quite a bit there. The underground part of the tour was, again, very exciting for her to see. She said she could almost feel the presence of the gladiators, etc.
Based on her observations, I would say that the whole experience was fantastic, and we would not hesitate to recommend Through Eternity for this tour.
Subject: Wonderful Rome at Twilight and Vatican tours
I would love to share my feedback on the walking tour of Rome we took with Michael. We really enjoyed the tour and Michael was so informative and gave us a wonderful experience. He was very knowledgeable on the history and ruins we saw and gave great advise on places to eat and showed us numerous sites that we wanted to see. The pace of the tour was perfect and he was wonderful at answering our questions as well as giving us time to take photos. I was very happy with the tour and glad I selected it. I would happily recommend this tour to my friends. Thank you Michael for making our night so magical.
Our tour of the Vatican with Caterina was also wonderful. She did her best to keep us away from the crowds and show is all the really important things we wanted to see. She was very knowledgeable and the tour was so informative. She gave us time to view the Sistine Chapel, and arranged it in a way we were separate from the other tours masses as much as possible, yet we still got to see all the greatest sites. We did a ton of walking and were exhausted at the end but we really enjoyed it a grate deal.
Subject: Added Enormous Value to Our Experience
The In-Depth Vatican tour, and the guide Katia, were both great. Her deep knowledge of the artistic works (including the social and political forces they represented) added enormous value to our experience by placing the works in context and exploring their meaning. The tour was well paced and covered a lot of ground very effectively.
Subject: Helped Us Envision Rome 2000 years ago
Hello, glad we took the Ancient City Essential tour with a guide. John was very informative and answered all questions and helped us to envision Rome 2000 years ago. The group travelled at a comfortable rate.
Subject: The Only way to see the Vatican!
We strongly believe this is the only way to see the Vatican, with a tour like yours and with a guide like Guido. We enjoyed it a lot and Guido was also kind, knowledgeable, excellent.
Subject: Giovanni was brilliant!
Yesterday we had our first Through Eternity tour with Giovanni at the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colloseum. WOW! Giovanni was brilliant! We were all enthralled in what he had to say. He was a fabulous story teller with just the right amount of humor. He managed to lead us through a thousand years of history without completely overwhelming us. The tour group size was perfect and left me looking at those huge tour groups thinking that must be awful! We could hear Giovanni well and he was always in sight so you never felt as just one of the herd. His extra archaeological knowledge was some of the most interesting points of the day! Because of the great experience yesterday we have already booked another tour with TE and my mother just said "I hope it's with Giovanni." Thank you to Giovanni for making this trip much more memorable for us, we will be talking about this for ages!
Subject: Leonardo made Roman History Come Alive!
The Underground Colosseum tour with Leonardo was fabulous! He was so knowledgable and interesting that he made Roman history come alive! We will always remember our wonderful introduction to a majestic city and will definitely return!
