OMG! I don't even know where to begin as it was an amazing trip!!! Rossella Ruscio was our guide and she was fun, informative, attentive and knew so much about Venice and the surrounding areas it was like having our own private guide! She even recommended a great place for lunch and that didn't disappoint either! She checked so often to make sure that we were all present and accounted for and she even took the time to care for those of us who couldn't walk as fast as the group. She made this trip worry free and super fun!!!! This was our 4th trip with you folks and we LOVE 'Get Your Guide' all of your guides are super so thank you so much for offering this great service!!!

What I respect about StarBike is that even though we signed up for a shared bike tour, we were the only participants. Rather than cancelling the tour, we essentially had a private tour and it was amazing. Fabrizio is an outstanding tour guide and has a wealth of knowledge about Rome and its history. The eBike tour we had in Rome with Fabrizio was one of the highlights of our Italy vacation.

The whole experience was great! Well organised and totally worth every money we spent! I have to mention Emiliano our tour guide who was amazing! Really knowledgeable, funny, well prepared and amazing! This guy made the trip unforgettable experience and should get an award for the best tour guide! Really recommend!

Emiliano, our guide, you can see that he enjoys his work. Tells, explains and sometimes forgets the time ;)

I would highly recommend to go on this tour. Long one but worth it.
