We recently went on a month long trip through Europe on our own in September 2015. We went on a variety of tours and with a variety of tour guides. We booked Gaetano well in advance and toured with him privately. We had high hopes as Gaetano has good reviews here in the forums etc as well recommended on by Rick Steve’s and even appears in Rick Steve’s TV series. Gaetano, not only met, but exceeded our expectations. He is all you hope for in a guide, friendly, knowledgeable, humorous, and easy to understand. Having been on a variety of tours on our trip we valued that Gaetano seemed to understand us and quickly paced the tour to us. He was always insightful giving real life examples and had us laughing on many occasions. We moved briskly seeing so much yet never felt rushed. Just the way we like to tour. Gaetano must give this tour so often, yet still delivers it with zest and uses you in his discussions. In the 2 hours we really felt we had seen the highlights and met a interesting person who seemed like a friend by the end of the tour and not a guide. For Gaetano’s knowledge, there is little to compare to other guides we had on our journey. Context tours in Rome were also excellent, but in every category Gaetano was just a bit better than everyone else. We saw areas most others do not, and truly felt we had seen the best with the best. Do not hesitate to book with Gaetano Manfredi. THANK YOU GAETANO FOR A GREAT TIME!
