Absolutetly Amazing

A tripadvisor user

I had the recent pleasure of meeting with Maria and Franco outside of the Vatican. At the time I had a tour of the Vatican arranged through the hotel that I was staying at, however I decided not to go ahead with the tour and booked with Maria instead, I am so glad that I made that decision as it was the best thing that I did. The tour guide (Mariana) was fantastic, she was so knowledgeable and made the tour lots of fun.

Maria and Franco have my highest recommendation, they are both experts in their field and they are both so personable and friendly, dealing with them is an absolute privilege. I will be recommending anyone I know visiting Rome to book with them, and when I am back I will most definitely be using them again.

Thank you so much Maria and Franco. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet you both.

This morning we were on a tour of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapter. At the end of the tour, three of us became separated from our tour group with Trafalgar Tours. After standing in front of the square for over an hour, Maria stopped to ask if we were lost. An hour later we were still there. We has tried to contact our Trafalgar tour director, but to no avail. Marie, seeing is still there, stopped again and she tried to contact the emergency number that ẃ had been given. When she could not get through she went to find Franco who came over. He managed to get through and upon speaking with our tour director, he suggested we take a taxi back to our hotel.

We are extremely grateful to Maria and Franco who went out of the way to help us out.

I was referred to Frank and Mary by my collegue at work. For my parents’ anniversary we had a private tour.This visit was my mom’s wish. Before going there I personally did not have any expectations .

I was so pleasantly surprised. We went to the Vatican museum and had a private tour of the Sistine Chapel. It was really interesting and informative, especially because of the great guide. He knew what he was talking about and was able to answer all of our questions.
At the end of the day we got more than we expected. It was worth every penny. I can highly recommend Sentia Rome Tours.

Gandolfo and the Summer Residence for the Pope

(from TripAdvisor)

My Wife and I arrived in Rome with only a couple of tours during our 6 day visit. We met Franco at the Vatican and inquired about doing some Wine Tours in Rome and Florence. Franco was so kind in helping us to set up a Vineyard Tour in Florence with another Guide that was amazing. Franco assisted us and was our guide for a Tour and Wine Tasting in Gandolfo including a Tour of the Papal Summer Residence…..all I can say is… Amazing Tour and Guide. I would highly recommend Franco to anyone who is looking for any quality Tours while in Rome.

They offer a great service and if I was planning on seeing everything in Vatican city I would definitely work with this company. They were great to just talk to and overall lovely people. I would 100% recommend this company to anyone traveling in Rome!

We met Franco on the train into Rome from Civitivecchia. He explained his services to my husband. We were in need of a ride to FCO early in the morning on a Sunday morning. We were also located in Piazza della Rotunda (Pantheon) so I was a bit worried that the driver might not find us.

The driver, Manolo, was there, as promised, right on time (4:15 am). Cost was $50 euro to FCO. Was well worth it. Thank you Franco and Manolo, we appreciated the great service. Would not hesitate to recommend, just email Franco on his website.

A family friend who booked with Sentia Rome Tours last year referred us to them.
To our surprise they are now offering a family tour.
David,an American expat was our guide. He was friendly, informative and patient.
We had a pleasant time with David.
Our group consisted of mix of different nationalities which David was happy to answer everyone’s questions. Even the children were happy with his wit and knowledge of the Vatican.

I highly recommend Sentia Rome Tours.

When in Rome if you want to do what the Romans do and much more then this is the tour company that one needs to approach. I visited Rome for the first time with a friend and had an amazing time there all thanks to this tour company run by Frank and Marie. Our tour consisted of visits to the Vatican, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, Pantheon, all the famous Piazzas, etc. with a guide who was very knowledgeable and most importantly fluent in English (English can be a huge problem in Italy). As we went around winter when rain can be an impediment to sightseeing in Rome, Frank and Marie planned our tour in such a manner that we were always in a museum or the like when it rained and were taking walking tours when it was sunny. Even though this tour company is one of the most professional I have come across what sets them apart from the rest is the level of hospitality that they offer for no extra cost and with a huge smile. Whether it was sorting out our SIM cards or helping us plan the rest of our trip in Italy free of cost or ensuring that our car rental company doesn’t take us for a ride or calling and checking on us when we left Rome to visit the rest of Italy or even sorting us out when we were stranded in our rental car in a small town in Italy when our GPS stopped working in the middle of the night (this incident took place much after this company’s mandate to cater to us came to an end). All in all this is a safe, reliable and cost effective tour company which will go to the ends of the world to ensure that you have a great time in Italy and especially Rome. Thank you Frank and Marie for a wonderful trip.


“Many thanks for organising the tours on our holiday, I particularly want to praise your tour guide. He had the wit of a comedian,

the knowledge of a historian, the vocal strength of an opera singer and a warm, welcoming manner. The breadth and depth of his expertise was truly impressive. I am an Architect, so I have a good idea of the amount of work and dedication it took to possess that kind of knowledge. 26th July 2011 “ Adam Adamson, South Shields, United Kingdom”

Hi Frank

Thanks so much for everything. So happy we met you especially as a fellow Canadian. We are so pleased with our tours with you. Ian or Yan (not sure which it is) and Nicole were EXCELLENT. Information from local guides should, and very much does for us, enrich the whole experience of being somewhere.
We will definitely recommend you/your company to anyone we know who is coming to Rome.
Please pass greetings to Marie.
Again it was so much fun meeting you all the way we did.

Our son, granddaughter and family friend have joined us now and we start our Trafalgar Tour tomorrow.
