VISIT TO ROME - Tour review and testimonials of Rome Kids Tour.

Thank you for another great job. Our clients were thrilled with your insight and knowledge. I thought that you would appreciate the following comments we received during our follow up with them.
"Katja is a lovely girl and wonderful guide - totally worth the price we paid. I wouldn't have thought her German, her accent is so American. We learned things from her that Linda's aunt, who is an Italian teacher and has been to Rome 15+ times, didn't know." Especially the kids loved her so much!
As always, we know that our client's are in good hands with you.

Dear Katja:
Thank you for the wonderful two day tour of Rome. Your knowledge of the area and the sites was most impressive. You were able to make it interesting for everyone in our group and you didn't miss a beat when Alex was either wandering off or not feeling well. I will be sure to use your name as a reference for future tours. The rest of our trip was very nice but the kids repeatedly said "I wish Katja was our guide".
Thank you so much,

"A Couple of Wonderful Guides!"
When in Rome, we arranged private tours with a couple of wonderful guides: Katja Hansel & Carol. We made all the arrangements over the Internet which included their services and transportation for our group of 10, (2 children). They did not require any money up front and even accepted a personal check for the three days of tour at the conclusion of our time in Rome. They arranged for us to be picked up (and were always on time) at our hotel by a very competent driver (which, in Rome, is a rarity) in an air-conditioned van. Both spoke perfect English and their knowledge of Rome and the Vatican was outstanding. We specified certain sites that we wished to see and they filled in other sites to complete the three four-hour tours we took. As first-time visitors to Rome, the sites we specified were the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vatican (with the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica) and the Catacombs. We saw these along with other churches, fountains and wonderful sites too numerous to mention. We never had to wait in line to purchase admission tickets as Carlo or Katja handled that for us. With Carol as our tour guide, we were able to feel her sense of honor and pride of the local Roman culture, and Katja's knowledge of the Vatican was endless. After experiencing Rome with them, the tours we took which were sponsored by Holland America were of no comparison. On the private tours you are not rushed, you are not one of the masses, you can understand what is said and the transportation is spacious and waiting for you. These tours were the highlight of our trip. If you are considering private tours, please contact Carlo and Katja as they will make your stay memorable.

Hi Katja,
We just got home last night. Your tour of the Vatican was the highlight of our trip and John keeps telling everyone how great your were. He was almost not even going to go to the Vatican because he is not connected to any religion-but was really impressed. Thank you so very much! We greatly enjoyed meeting you and loved our tour.

Thank you for a fantastic tour last weekend - the boys are still taking about it!
It takes a great skill to engage and interest youngsters (especially mine) & you did it exceptionally well!
Thanks again,
Nick, & Val Bunker

Dear Katja,
We have returned from our cruise to Europe this past September, and I would like to take a few moments to thank you so very much for our tour. We spent 17 days in Europe, and our day in Rome with you was the very BEST! It was a highlight for all of us. Your knowledge and enthusiasm for your job certainly shows. I know that it certainly helps to be on a very private and personalized tour, but I am now convinced there is no other way! Comparing notes with our table mates at dinner that day, everyone realized that we had chosen the best way to see Rome in a day. The large bus tours, and even the smaller more personalized minivan tours were nothing compared to what we experienced with you! I am so glad that we were able to tour, sip coffee, lunch, shop and learn about your fabulous Italy with you. I will certainly recommend your guide services to my clients.

On a more personal note:
Our daughter Chelsea has never been one to want to travel as much as the rest of us in the family. She was more of a homebody. Until.... we took this trip to Europe. Your suggestion that she might want to come back to Rome intrigued her. She has thought a lot about travelling since then and has decided that her day in Rome was her favorite part of the whole trip! The day after we arrived home to Vancouver, she decided that she would accept her friend's invitation to come to Beijing with her to visit a mutual friend, and perhaps to teach English. She is leaving Nov. 19th, and will return at the end of January. She has told her friend Laura, that if she travels to Beijing with Laura, then Laura must travel to Rome with Chelsea later in the spring, because Chelsea is determined to come back.
Thank you for sharing all your wisdom with us!!!

Katja, YOU ARE THE BEST!!! …..and thanks to you everyone loved our visit to Rome. You should have more children. Thanks as well for organizing the adventures in Venice and Paris, both of which were great.
We will give your name to anyone we know headed your way, and next time we head over to Italy we will contact you.

Thanks again.

You made our Rome experience most enjoyable and enriched our every visit with such wonderfully in-depth knowledge. Thank you again for sharing!
A really winning combination….the eternal city plus a most patient, efficient and instructive guide!

Katja … Katja … Katja …
How do we thank you enough for this wonderful day?! It is something we will talk about forever.
I feel badly about not being alert enough at the end of our time to include an extra "thank you" for your superb services.
You made this such a special memory for us. We will remember you and our time together always.
We've ALREADY given your name and contact information to several on board. You may be sure we'll be among your biggest promoters.
You and our time in Rome will be memory standouts forever.

Thank you so much, Katja! You have a very kind heart and run a good business. I really appreciated your eye and hand contact with our five kids. It really kept them engaged and the iPad helped all of us as well!

It's a rarity to find someone who can engage positively and productively with kids, not to mention, I appreciate your pitching in as a team effort as we navigated the steps and checked in buggies and all! ABOVE AND BEYOND!

May God continue to bless you with more and more business and more and more time with your daughter.

Thank you again from all of us for a very memorable time in Rome!

Warm Regards,

The Fulton Clan

Hello Katja,

I wanted to express, one more time, how very grateful my family is for having spent time with you in Rome. Without question, our trip would not have been nearly as memorable if we had navigated the city without you.

Evan couldn't wait to go to school this morning to share everything he learned from you. We went through the Rome Guide Book, marking each place that we saw, and I was amazed at the amount of detail that he remembered. You made the history of each place come alive for us, and I think that even though Evan is only 7, he will remember the fantastic things he learned about Rome, thanks to you.

Thank you again!



Hi Katja,

Thanks again for the fantastic tours. Dianna really enjoyed it and retained a lot. She sent a long e mail to her friend when we got back to the hotel Saturday and I was surprised how detailed it was.

The trip to Pompeii was great too. We really enjoyed our driver, Bruno. He spoke excellent English and pointed out many sites along the ride and was overall very entertaining.

Thanks again,
Dave Cohen

Hi Katja,

Nanette and I (Tyler, Stephanie and Madaline too) just want to send you and email and thank you for the great tour of Roma you provided. Your knowledge of the city and of the Vatican made the experience virtually come alive for us. We had a wonderful time in Roma and will be sure to give your name to any of our friends who plan to travel to Rome.

Thank you again for a great Roma experience.

Warmest regards,

David and Nanette Renzi


Our trip to Rome was GREAT! Your tours were GREAT! It was amazing how well the kids listened to you both! Carol did a great job with them too. :)

Hello Katja,

Our trip to Rome was wonderful! Rosella was an amazing guide and we will definitely recommend you (and her) to any friends that head your way. Thanks for being so responsive and helpful and please let Rosella know how much we appreciated her changing her day on saturday to help us out. Rome is an incredible city and because of Rosella's excellent knowledge and enthusiasm, the city "became alive" for us.

Many thanks and best of luck to you,
