Subject: Truly Memorable!
John did an excellent job. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend this tour and guide to everyone. My son has posted an extensive reveiw on Trip Advisor. 5 stars!! John was knowledgable and took time to explain everything. He made our experience truly memorable!
Subject: The Perfect Tour Guide
Thank you very much and please thank Cinzia. She was of utmost help to me—extremely knowledgeable and able to answer nearly all of my peculiar questions. She seemed to know all of the relevant archeology and the writings of the ancients by heart. She was very fair and objective in her interpretation of the original sources. She was not afraid to admit when there was a gap in our historical knowledge and explain why that was the case. I felt like a sponge just soaking up as much of her knowledge as possible. She was, in short, the perfect tour guide.
Subject: Last non-cardinals to see the Sistine Chapel!
Our tour guide for the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica In-Depth Experience was John Tinto. The size of our group was 10, which is apparently smaller than the average of 14. He spoke fluent Italian and English, and also understood the Latin inscriptions along the tour. The tour itself was very in depth and John gave excellent discourses about the important pieces of art or structures through the museums and chapels. The tour was scheduled for 5 hours with a 30 minute break, and does involve a fair bit of walking.
Because of the imminent papal elections, the Sistine Chapel was scheduled to be closed at 1:00 PM on the day of our tour. Normally, the tour is scheduled to reach this area at around 2:30, but John adjusted the route of the tour to reach the Sistine Chapel well in advance of the closing time so that our group could see the chapel. However, John did not allow the other portions of the tour to suffer, and made sure to return to the portions we initially skipped. This was greatly appreciated by everyone as we became some of the last non-cardinals to see the Chapel.
The rest of the group and I greatly recommend John and Through Eternity for this tour and experience.
Subject: Caterina Was Fabulous At The Vatican!
I loved, loved my tour! Caterina was a fantastic, knowledgeable, and funny guide. I would recommend Through Eternity to any of my family or friend traveling to Rome!!
Subject: Amazing Vatican Tour With Luca
This tour was absolutely amazing. We feel very fortunate to have had Luca as our guide. He kept us engaged the entire tour. I am so glad we chose your company and this tour of the Vatican, museums and Sistine Chapel. This was a very enriching experience for us. Thanks so much to Luca and your company.
Subject: 2-Day Immersion: Incredible Experience!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Mario. His knowledge was incredible and he made the history of Rome come alive. His personality and sense of humor made the day one we will never forget. We could not even imagine a better way to explore Rome and we would definitely recommend the tour without hesitation! Thank you so much for an unforgettable day!
Luca was absolutely incredible! His knowledge and personality made it an unforgettable day. We learned far more than we could have imagined and we would recommend the the tour to anyone going to Rome. Thank you so much!

Subject: Four Wonderful Days with Through Eternity
My wife and I just spent four wonderful days in Rome. We highly recommend Through Eternity Tours.
We took the "Nero's Rome: Colosseum (Underground and third Tier included), Roman Forum and Palatine Hill" and the "Underground Rome: ancient and medieval" private tours with Luca De Angelis. He was a fantastic tour guide, highly knowledgeable and informed, but with personality! BTW, Luca's background is an archaeologist and was invaluable.
We also took the "Vatican Museums and St. Peter's - The In-depth Experience" private tour with Katia Di Lodovico. She was also a fantastic tour guide, again highly knowledgeable and informed. She also made the tour personable and enjoyable.
Finally, we took "Borghese Gallery: Myths, emotions, ideas about art and artists" private tour with Caterina Panetta. Her depth of knowledge was outstanding!
You can't go wrong with these guides.
Subject: Wonderful Experience with Giovanni
Dear Through Eternity:
I wanted to provide feedback on both the Ancient Rome tour as well as the Vatican Museum tours we took last week with Giovanni on 18-19/02.
The main reason we took the tours was our desire to see as much as possible in a short period of time, while not overwhelming our two children, ages 5 & 8. Giovanni was an excellent tour guide - he was knowledgeable and thorough, and he really made the tours accessible for all of us. It was an efficient and incredibly enjoyable experience for all of us. He answered questions and was very good with the children - striking the right balance between trying to see and do everything and recognizing when the kids had done enough.
Giovanni was also very helpful as far as restaurant recommendations and ideas for other things to see and do with our children in Rome. It was an excellent experience and we would definitely recommend Giovanni and your services to others.

We had a wonderful experience with Francesca during our tour of 'The Ancient City'. She was very well informed, engaging and was able to answer a myriad of questions. I would highly recommend her (and Through Eternity) travel to anyone.
We also took a tour of Pompeii with Bartolo and also thought he was great. He was humorous, kind, and well informed. We were late for this tour since we took the wrong train from Naples, but he handled it well.
Fantastic tour guides and our interaction with the reservation team was also wonderful.
Subject: Hated Saying Goodbye to Luca! 5 Stars!
We are still traveling and internet connections are problematic so I will be replying in more detail later. I wanted to quickly reply though because I could not wait to say how incredible our two days were. Luca is a treasure and brought everything to life for us - we hated to say good bye to him and cannot express how wonderful we thought he was.
Though I have recently begun to consult Trip Advisor I have never left a review there. After we return home though I am going to register and post my first review of your company - five stars absolutely!!
Thank you again,

Hi Through Eternity,
Sorry for the very late reply. Our tour of the Vatican was great and Mr Giovanni Vergineo was a very good guide. Very professional and keep up the good work. Our ancient city tour was also very interesting. Mr John Tinto was very professional. He explained every detail and tried to make us understand the history or Rome. Hope to visit Rome again :)
Subject: Vatican Tour Was Exactly What I Wanted! Thanks!
I enjoyed the tour very much. Exactly what I wanted and I would recommend it to anybody. Leonardo was knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. I thought he was a fantastic guide. The tour was well paced and varied and I was completely satisfied with the whole experience. Thank you very much.
Subject: Best Vatican Guide Ever!
Our tour guide Leonardo was the best guide I have ever had! I have been several times with guides to the Vatican museum and he was the best.
Subject: John Tinto Exceeds Expectations
I thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour with Mr Tinto. He is a very entertaining and well-informed guide, who takes his time to explain and answer any additional questions in a clear and elaborate way. I never had the feeling of being rushed through the programme, on the contrary, Mr Tinto went beyond the designated tour time of 3.5 hours to finish the tour.

Cinzia was the perfect expert to take us through such an historical experience! Her knowledge of art, sculpture, and the Catholic Church in Rome was amazing. We could have spent another day with her. No matter what we asked, she knew the answer. Her art background and education are amazing! We loved every minute of the 5 and a half hours of the tour! She guided us to all of the right places and around the other tour groups smoothly. It was a fantastic experience thanks to Cinzia! I recommend her to everyone who goes through the Vatican!
Mario was amazing! His knowledge of history, culture, religion, and the obvious scandals of Roman and Catholic history were exemplary! He was friendly and had a great sense of humor that added to our enjoyment of the tour. I don't think this tour would have been as much fun with anyone else! We learned so much and absolutely loved visiting the places that he walked us through. I would repeat the tour in a heartbeat with Mario! We returned to several of these neighborhoods on subsequent days of our vacation in Rome. Don't let this tour cease to exist; and be sure to keep Mario around as well! Thank you, Mario, for an amazing historical experience and your willingness to share your expertise with us all!
Katia was amazing and unflinching in a bad weather day in Rome! She was extremely knowledgeable of the history, the buildings, and the people of ancient Rome---from the lower classes to the royalty of both Rome and the Vatican, Katia knew it all. She was accommodating when the weather turned bad (thunderstorms and plenty of rain) yet never wavered in her quest to get us to the Coliseum and show us all the other exiting buildings and landmarks along the way. Katia knew it all, both historically and when it came to the interesting details of living in past centuries. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and Katia's company the entire day!
Although I was working professionally that day, my wife, Dana, and my daughter, Taylor, had a great time viewing the Gallery! Dana commented that Caterina was highly knowledgeable about the sculptures at the museum, and was kind to permit Dana to return to a couple of the pieces to take pictures and enjoy the views even though they had a time limit for the tour. Dana noted that it was a "must see" and that Caterina was the perfect guide for the entire experience!
I will recommend Eternity to absolutely everyone I know who notes that they are headed to Rome!
Thank you for four days of absolute excitement and joy as we took part on four of your tours. The individual attention and source of knowledge from each of your tour guides were impressive!
We have fantastic memories of Rome thanks to each of Eternity's tour guides who we were fortunate enough to have spent time with!
Thank you, Eternity Tours!
