We were fortunate enough to spend two half days with our guide. She completely engaged the kids (ages 8, 9 and 11), and the adult too. We learned more than we would have any other way. She was absolutely terrific.
The overall experience working with Europe4Kids was wonderful. They were flexible, responsive and ultimately helped us make the absolute most of our time in Rome. Thank you!!!
Rome with a 6 8 and 9 year old can be kind of challenging but our guide was truly wonderful. She engaged the children and made each moment of history come alive for the kids and for the adults. She answered all of our questions and showed us all around town. A lovely experience that we never forget. Thank you so much
