I’m originally from London, but like many people in their early twenties, my sense of adventure got the better of me and I spent many years travelling the globe. I eventually wound up in Rome - a city that’s frozen in time and impossible not to fall in love with.

I’ve worked as a professional licensed guide in Europe for over 15 years now - meaning I’m not only an expert in Roman history, but also that of many other cultures across the continent.

For me, meeting people from all over the world is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I can guarantee to keep learning and history fun - so join me on a tour and let me share this amazing city with you.

    Barbara was great! Super knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the Vatican and Sistine chapel! Not to mention all the political and religious intrigue surrounding Rome historically!

    Five stars for this Vatican Museum tour. Our guide was engaging and incredibly knowledgeable. It was obvious that she was passionate about the subject, and it made the tour really stand out. She knew the terrain well, so we were able to avoid crowds and lines. Our group was also much smaller than many others we passed, which allowed us to ask questions and take time to see things close-up.

    Really nice experience! Highly recommend. Our guide was Andrea, very funny and personable. Very knowledgeable. The Vatican is busy and crowded, a lot of groups. Just letting first timers know. Tours run the show there, they are everywhere

    Catarina was incredible! She handled our large group well and was able to keep everyone involved. She throughly knew the Vatican Museums and clearly loved her job. Amazing experience. She was easy to connect to.

    Federica was a wonderful guide, her English is very good, she’s also very knowledgeable on the subject matter and had lots of uncommon facts about things within the tour. Overall great experience!!

    Colin was a great tour guide, he gave plenty of information without saying too much. He answered all questions and had great communication with us. This tour was nice especially because of the ear phone they gave us so we could hear our tour guide over the other visitors/guides and we didn’t have to look at only him.
