Subject: Wonderful, Informative Guide
John was a wonderful, informative guide who went the extra mile for our group when we discovered the Forum closed due to a "staff meeting." He took us to the Colosseum first and then to the Forum after the staff meeting was over and spent an extra hour and a half with us. He really brought the areas to life with his descriptions of activities that took place and descriptions of what it all looked like in its glory days. Well worth the money!
Subject: Incredible Guides
I was very pleased with our tour of the Vatican. When it came time to take the tour I had second guessed my decision to take the in-depth tour, but boy was I wrong. This was definitely a highlight of our time in Rome, Cinzia was a wealth of knowledge and the passion she showed in her presentation was amazing. I could not imagine taking this tour without a guide such as her. As a result, I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone,we thouroughly enjoyed our tour of the Vatican.
Our trip to the colosseum was also an amazing experience, my wife and I talked for hours afterwords about how we would have known nothing about anything in front of us if not for our amazing guide, Guido. He was very knowledgeable and very articulate in his presentation and we were totally in awe of the Colosseum! This tour as well was a highlight of our time in Rome- oh how I miss your incredible city.
Subject: Three Fabulous Private Tours!
We were very pleased both with Gregory as a guide at the Vatican. My wife and I had been on the shorter version of this tour in 2005 and feel that the tour was even better than it was in 2005. We also very much enjoyed the tour with Stefano - ancient city and piazzas and fountains - and would highly recommend both him and the tour to other people. It was an enjoyable experience and all of us learned a great deal from Stefano's explanations. I do not have any suggestions for improvement. Last but not least, we were very pleased both with Louise and the full day tour in Florence. She did a wonderful job of helping us understand life during the Renaissance in Florence. I would highly recommend the tour and Louise to other people. Thanks again to her for a great experience!
Subject: Two Fabulous Florence Tours
Hello from Andrew and Rubina, our tour through the Uffizi was exceptional thanks to Pip who made all of our arrangements and Angelo who provided us with a fun and detailed look at what the Uffizi has to offer. Angelo also took some time at the end of our tour to share with us some great places to eat while in Florence. His recommendation for us to go and see the Basilica di Santa Marie Novella was well appreciated.
Then, our tour looking at The last masterpiece of Michelangelo and our beloved Florence" was again exceptional thanks to Pip who made the arrangements and Elizabeth who provided us with a fun, friendly and detailed look through the city of Florence. Elizabeth introduced us to places in the city that we would not have thought to venture into. She also made some nice suggestions after our tour as to what else to see and helped us get reserved advance tickets to see the museum where the statue of David is displayed.

Subject: Stefano was fantastic!
Stefano was fantastic as a tour guide - we've never had a more informed, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide in all our travels. Everyone in our group had already been to the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's before, my wife teaches art history, and we all learned valuable information not found in a typical college art history course or in the many travel guides we read in preparation for our trip. Maybe more importantly, Stefano knew how to navigate the late July crowds that are so prevalent at these travel sights. Stefano is an engaging person who was able to get the entire group involved - he was simply fantastic! We enthusiastically have recommended him to our travel friends.
Subject: Eugenia was the best tour guide we've ever had!
We have traveled to Europe 10 - 12 times. This was our second trip to Italy. Eugenia was the best tour guide we've ever had on any of our trips. Very informative, good sense of humor, well worth every penny. We would happily recommend her to anyone. ~ Carol
Subject: John was simply put - BRILLIANT !!!
Hi! Sorry for sending u feedback so late. Actually I was still traveling onto austria and got back home only on the weekend.
Well, John was simply put - BRILLIANT !!! Thoroughly enjoyed both the tours he took - palatine hill, forum and colosseum. Brought alive the history for us wonderfully and his sense of humour, passion and insights were amazing. Is a credit to ur company and i have already referred u all to several friends that we made on the trip.
Subject: Great Senses of Humour
I was very satisfied with Cinzia Cutrone as the tour leader in the Vatican Museums. She was very professional and informative, yet friendly and afable. I enjoyed all of the tour, even when we were getting pressed by hundreds of other people in hot and stuffy rooms. She always had something relevant and interesting to say and had a sense of humour.
I was very pleased with John's tour of the Coloseum and Palantine. He was truly an expert, had a sense of humour and was professional. Unlike with other tours, where the tour leader is burned out on doing it once to often, John was curious about our opinions and came across as caring whether we heard and understood the information and interpretations.
I am glad I took the tours.

Subject: 5-Star Tour!
We enjoyed our tour with Cinzia thoroughly!! She was very knowledgeable about the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s. We learned much more through her tour than we might have otherwise and were able to appreciate the works! Cinzia was wonderful to respond to any question, offer more information, or chat even during lunch about the tour. No question was too ridiculous or too difficult to respond. She was also very helpful to a poor gentleman who was trying to navigate the tour with a stroller. All said, we will definitely use Through Eternity in future bookings, and recommend to others traveling to Rome! We have also posted a review on TripAdvisor of 5 stars. Thank you!
Subject: Wealth of Historical and Archaeological Information
We had a tour today through the Roman Forum and the Colosseum with Leonardo and he was full of knowledge. The group was small (10 people) so this was very good. Leonardo was a wealth of historical and archaeological information and we thorough enjoyed the tour and he was excellent as a tour guide. We will recommend Through Eternity Tours to others.

Subject: Two Fantastic Tours With Caterina
In-Depth Vatican Tour: we had a wonderful experience with our guide Caterina, she was so nice and so knowlegeable. We did the 5 1/2 hour tour and the time flew by, there was so much to see! I took some very memorable photos and would highly recommend this tour and your company.
City of Caesars Tour: when we arrived at the meeting place we were so happy to see our guide Caterina, who we had spent a delightful day with at the Vatican earlier in the week. It turns out that Caterina is as knowledgable about the history of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum as she is about Italian artwork. We spent another excellent day with her and had a wonderful time.
Subject: Amazing Essence of Rome
Sorry for my late response, but wanted to definitely get back to you. Our Essence of Rome tour 14/08/2012 with John was amazing! It was a full day, but the sites were all so interesting. I wouldn't have wanted to exclude any part of it. John's knowledge and ability to present were very impressive. It was a wonderful experience of the eyes, the mind and the heart!
Subject: Exceptional Guide
We would like like to express our deepest appreciation of the exceptional quality of Marco's presentation at our Vatican tour on May 22/ 2012. We had all our questions answered in the most professional way. Marco's knowledge of history and religion is profound.
Highly recommended tour agency and tour guide.

Subject: Booking With Through Eternity Was Best Decision of Our Vacation
We had a wonderful private tour of Rome on September 1, 2012. Robert was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and history. The decision to schedule a private tour with your company proved to be one of the best decisions of our entire vacation. We would certainly recommend Through Eternity to anyone touring Rome.

Subject: Articulate and Intelligent Presentation
The Vatican Museums and St. Peter's tour we took with Laura on September 1, 2012, was one of the best if not the best tour we have ever taken. It was well organized and thorough. Laura was very knowledgeable and provided a strong understanding of the collection as well as an articulate and intelligent presentation of the history, interrelationships, artistic techniques, and impact of the works we viewed. It was evident that she enjoyed sharing her knowledge and passion for art. We left the tour with a feeling we had truly experienced an in-depth introduction to the museums and St. Peter's. Thank you.
