What an AMAZING experience. When you are home planning your trip you dream of having a tour guide as amazing as Kiara but don't think it will actually happen. She makes magic. This tour was our favorite in Rome. You go to so many places you would not otherwise even know existed. You try so many different foods and learn so much about food history. We left stuffed and so so so happy. We will remember this tour and Kiara for many years! Thank you!
