Susanna is both knowledgeable and delightful. She was on time and focused on our personalized enjoyment as we explored Etruscan burial mounds, quaint towns outside of the hustle and bustle of Rome, and the stunning gardens of a young Renaissance cardinal. Thanks to Susanna for her lovely Italian hospitality!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to be with you both! I wish a very nice vacation and hope to see you next time again. Love, Susanna

Sussanah was an exceptional guide for our "Pines of Rome" tour. She explained details that brought the experience so much life. Her descriptions were clear, not overwhelming, just really helpful. Her manner is so wonderfully personal and professional. The time flew!! Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lorene! It was really my pleasure to be with you in this 'discovery tour' of the musica places. I wish I could come and listen to your concert in October! The very best to everyone!
Karen KieferUnited States
Our family spent a fabulous day with Susanna visiting Etruscan and Roman ruins, an Etruscan burial site and the quaint little town of Tarquinia, where we saw buildings from several different centuries. We finished the morning with a local restaurant where we all enjoyed some wine and homemade pasta dishes. Thank you, Susanna!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was my pleasure to be with you and your family. All the best to everyone, Susanna
If you are lucky enough to confirm a day with Susanna consider it a privilege. You cannot ask for a better day....truly a locals experience in a quiet and spectacular area of Italy. It was a highlight of our trip. Susanna is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, great communication and very accommodating. Our best Tours By Locals experience to date. Extraordinary above 5 stars +++.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. You are wonderful people!! See you next time in Italy, there are still lot more to be seen in this area. Take care! Susanna

Susanna is top notch. She gave us a superb tour complete with excellent historical and local information. She paced the tour to our specific needs. Besides that she is a delightful person. We have been on countless tours. Susanna ranks as one of the very best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Betty! Hope to see you both next time when you are in Civitavecchia. There are still lot of things to see in this area. All the best, Susanna

It was a gray and windy Monday (Nov '22), Susanna saved the day. The Etruscan Museum is closed Mondays- she had warned us, but we stopped a site and got a feel for the size and number of burials - whew there are a lot. On to several small villages - Susanna knew secret ways into hard to find rooms and art. The wine tasting/lunch was excellent. I mentioned loving mosaic floors - voila non-descript church with stunnning floors. The highlight was seeing her open air theater. Hope to see her in Feb.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pam, thank you so much. Your group was great! And lovely to share similar interests. See you in February! Happy Xmas to all of you, Susanna
Carrie SmithUnited States
Amazing tour with Susanna! She went out of her way to make sure our family had the most amazing time. Very easy going and comfortable to be on a long journey with. You will not regret booking a tour with her. So knowledgeable about the area and was great with all ages in our group (kids, adults and grandparents). Even made an unplanned detour once she learned of something a person on our tour was particularly interested in. So great! We would only book with her again if we were to return.
Why go to Rome when your cruise ship arrives in Civitavecchia when you can tour Estruscan necropoli with Susanna. This tour was an excellent way to see the countryside, some very interesting towns and of course the necropoli. Susanna was a great guide. As well since she was not born in Italy she provides a different prospective of the area. I found that interesting as well and added to the conversations we had all day. This tour did not disappoint and marked all the boxes for a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much both for your review and the details for the theatre. Very helpfull!! Planning new things for this 2023. Hope to see you next time when you are in Italy. Happy New Year to both of you. Susanna and Rudolph
Charlotte KennedyUnited States
From start to finish, we had the most pleasant day with Susanna creating memories that will last a lifetime. We were a party of six adults. The car was very comfortable. We went so many places--not enough characters to write them all. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend touring with Susanna! I know we will definitely be recommending her to our friends. Thank you so much Susanna for this wonderful experience especially the fantastic unexpected lunch!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Charlotte! It was really fantastic to be with you and you and your friends are so much fun! See you next time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was so lovely to be with you, Kathy and Charles! See you next time in Italy and have a great holiday! All the best, Susanna
Sharon RandallUnited States
We decided on a tour by "Tours By Locals" with Susanna. Our choice could'nt have been a better one! From start to finish Susanna provided our small group of 4 the most perfect day in port. She was very kind, personable and open to what we wanted to see while with her. She was well versed and knowledgeable about the locations but also infused humor to boot! Would we book with her again? Absolutely!! So should you Thanks Susanna for helping us memories we will never forget
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sharon! It was my pleasure to show you around! Wish you a Happy Xmas ! Susanna
Paul PetersonUnited States
Susan gave us a wonderful tour. Our visit to Viterbo was great, but also a side visit to the small medieval town that Susan lives in was a fantastic addition. Thanks Susan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy New Year 2023 and hope to see you soon again!
Linda AederUnited States
Susanna was amazing, so informative, kind and thoughtful. We toured Viterbo in the old part of the city, Bomarzo to see the Sacred Wood, had a wonderful lunch, viewed the Civita of Bagnoregio, Bolsena to walk the tower, and drop off in Vetralla. It was a full but wonderful day. I highly recommend Susanna as your tour guide in the region!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, brave ladies, the day was so nice also for me! There are still a lot of places to be discovered in this area we call Tuscia or Etruria or Northen Lazio or Viterbese. See you next time!
Our party of four adults had a tremendous tour with Susanna! Her knowledge of the Etruscans and their landscape is prodigious, so we saw some truly remarkable things, all in the light of Susanna's own evident delight in them. She has a warm and open personality: she was happy to share stories of her life in Italy and her career in opera, which gave us a sense of the modern region and its challenges. If you are in Rome, book Susanna and visit the remarkable countryside outside the city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gerald for the lovely day together! See you next time when you are in Rome. Cheers!
Spider MattosUnited States
We have been wanting to learn more about the Etruscan civilization for years and were hoping to see some of their sites on our trip to Italy. Happily, we found the wonderful Susanna. We reached out to her, explained what we wanted to see and she put together the most amazing tour for us. We saw every site we could hope to see. She is incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much. She also took us to a great restaurant that she had just discovered. An absolutely perfect day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was really lovely to be with you and together discover 'new' ancient places! All the best and see you next time in Italy
Mary DavisLos Angeles, CA, United States
We toured Palazzo Farnese with Susanna, and went to some charming small towns. We had a delicious lunch in a small town. Susanna is a wonderful guide and fun to be with. We highly recommend her!
Mary DavisLos Angeles, CA, United States
Susanna is a most warm and thoughtful guide. She is very knowledgeable both on history and tour facts but also of the area she is guiding in. This is the second time we have had her guide us. We toured Tarquinia and other areas south of Rome that were off the beaten path and beautiful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely to meet you again. All the best and hope to see you soon again!

Wonderful guide. Very informative and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour!
Tad OlsonUnited States
Susanna was great. She responded quickly to all inquiries and explained exactly how to meet her at the shuttle stop. The Etruscan tombs were likely the highlight, but every stop was a highlight. This was my personal favorite of our cruise excursions.

Richard AutreyUnited States
Ms. Susanna was so easy to work with and so friendly and informing. She Basically designed the tour around our needs so we can get from our downtown hotel in Rome to the port where our ship was leaving so that the time spent driving wasn't wasted and actually became a tour of the castle and and a beautiful ONESCO(Sp?) site. I recommend Sussanna highly for your travel needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. I enjoyed my day with you. Have a lovely holiday and take care.
Vincent KovarikUnited States
Susanna was a wonderful guide. She knew the 'secret' spots that made for phenomenal photos. Her knowledge of the area was extensive and kept all tour members enthralled. Her flexibility when the group desired to see an UNESCO site that wasn't originally planned was admirable and greatly appreciated. Additionally, her warm sense of humor and vibrant personality created a day that was enjoyed by all. We highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely company and good humor! Really hope to see you soon again! Take care and enjoy your travelling, Un abbraccio, Susanna
Mike PierceUnited States
Susanna shared with us her secret garden and arranged for the local Mayor to parade the streets on his way to marry two trees. We interacted with locals and saw non-tourist locations. The burial site of the sex bull with ancient graphics is unique. The stroll through the impressive gardens followed by a very Italian lunch made it a most special day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great! Thank you so much for your sense of humor and lovely company! Arrivederci e a presto, Susanna
Great guide, with great knowledge, very fond of children. A wonderful tour with very tasty food.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely to know you and your family + friend! Happy Easter to all of you.
Vincent MarraUnited States
Susanna is a superstar! She was so very knowledgeable, friendly, & flexible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to meet you and your fantastic kids! Have a nice holiday!
Maureen MarconiUnited States
Susanna was a wonderful tour guide, very knowledgeable about the areas, drove us on country roads so we could see more of the countryside. She had a fun personality, warm and excited to share the magic of the area where she lived. I highly recommend her as a great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Maureen! All the best to everybody and I hope you could find the restaurants in Rome! See you soon in the future
Gerald RouxUnited States
Susanna is just a treasure as a guide. She lives in the countryside that we visited, and she was just a joy to be with. The tour itself was a perfect fit after seeing the biggest landmarks in Rome the day before. A slower, more intimate pace allowed more time to take it all in. And the sights did not disappoint—seeing remnants from many different eras. And we had lunch in the most unique restaurant of any during our week in Italy. We highly recommend Susanna and this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you a lot and next time there will be more sights and restaurants to discover together! All the best!
We had a wonderful day throug the Tuscia with Susanne that was very friendly and competent . One of the best tours we ever had
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU Livio! It was my pleasure to be with you and your friends. Hope to see you next time! There are still lot of places to be visited in Tuscia.
Philip GuraUnited States
Susanna was a great guide. We were a family group of nine people ages 24 to 59. She made the entire tour fun and informative for all of us. We left the choice of restaurant for lunch up to her and we were so glad we did. It was truly one of the best meals we had in Italy. I would absolutely recommend Susanna.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Philip! Whenever you are back, please, contact me again. All the best to your beautiful family!
