Leonardo was amazing! We spent the day with him and allowed him to tske us to his favourite places around Rome. I've already mentioned to my family and friends in NZ to book through Luke limousine if they ever get to Rome. I'll definately be back one day


Our Roman adventure, brilliantly orchestrated by Gianluca Strano, started with a dash of humour and a splash of sunshine. Imagine this: it's a lovely Sunday morning at 8:30 am, the temperature a comfortable 24°C, and there's Gianluca, our extraordinary guide, ready to sweep us away from the Civitavecchia port after our fantastic 7-day cruise on the Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas. Gianluca, a walking Roman encyclopaedia with a side of stand-up comedy, regaled us with historical tidbits, amusing anecdotes, and tales so captivating they could rival a Netflix series. His charm and warmth made it feel like we were exploring the city with an old friend rather than your typical tour guide. Now, let's talk about the cherry on top – the luxurious 8-seater Mercedes that Luca, our trusted driver, whisked us around in. It wasn't just new; it practically gleamed like the Trevi Fountain at high noon. Luca's attention to detail ensured that every moment in Rome felt like a pampered journey. In the blink of an eye, Gianluca took us on a whirlwind tour, like an Italian version of "The Amazing Race." We time-travelled at the Roman Forum, marvelled at the Pantheon's architectural wizardry, and even cheered on the gladiators (in spirit) at the Colosseum. The Vatican felt truly divine, and we may have tossed a coin or two at the Fontana di Trevi to ensure our return. Our adventure continued to Piazza di Spagna, where we pretended to be Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, and then we revelled in the panoramic views of Piazza del Popolo like VIPs. Finally, we wrapped up our journey at the Pincio, one of Rome's oldest and most charming gardens, a place that has charmed visitors for centuries. But, oh, the icing on the cake was the delightful lunch at a local trattoria. We dined like Romans, savouring hearty meals at prices meant for locals, not tourists. It was so authentic; we almost started speaking Italian! Luca's professionalism shone through even before our adventure began, keeping us well-informed and ready to roll. He continued to impress by updating us on our delayed flight situation long after dropping us at Fiumicino Airport, demonstrating his unwavering commitment to our well-being. And the pièce de résistance of this Roman adventure? Gianluca's private tour wasn't just extraordinary; it was also an incredible value for money. When compared to the Royal Caribbean cruise excursion, it was like night and day. The cruise excursion, at twice the price, crammed us onto a crowded bus with 50 others and allowed us a mere 5 hours to explore Rome. In stark contrast, Gianluca treated us to a full 8-hour adventure through the city's highlights, complete with entertainment, insights, and a touch of luxury. It wasn't just an exceptional experience; it was an exceptional deal that made our Roman escapade all the more special. Grazie mille, Gianluca! In conclusion, our private tour with Gianluca Strano was a dreamy Roman holiday brought to life. His knowledge, humour, and warmth made every moment extraordinary. Gianluca's passion for his city left us utterly enchanted, and we're deeply grateful for the unforgettable experience he provided. If you find yourself in Rome and seek an exceptional tour guide, look no further than Gianluca. Grazie mille for making our Roman day truly, unequivocally, and joyfully extraordinary!


Luca gave us a perfect tour of Rome. He picked us up at the cruise ship port & returned us there at the end of the day. He is a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable & interesting. Don't waste your time with others. Ask for Luca


Luca provided us with a fantastic experience in Rome. We were very limited with time as we were on a cruise. He picked us up promptly and we returned to the ship on time, which could be challenging. With his extensive knowledge and experience we were able to see every major attraction up close and he provided us with adequate time to experience each attraction. He’s very knowledgeable and professional! Highly recommended!

From the moment Luca picked us from from our ship, we could tell this was going to be a memorable trip, Luca had access and knowledge to make it very enjoyable, we covered so much more in one day than we thought possible 100% I would recommend Rich


Our family had an amazing day in Rome with Luca. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and showed great effort to make sure we had the best day. We saw all the major attractions plus Luca showed us some hidden gems around Rome. We all loved it. He also took us to a nice family style restaurant for lunch. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend Luca and we will definitely use him next time we are in Roma.

Luca picked us up At the port in a comfortable Mercedes van & drove to Rome. He took us to all Rome highlights plus some personal requests. He is an experienced driver with a delightful personality! I highly recommend him


Leonardo was our guide. At first I was disappointed that Luke wasn’t our driver guide, but I quickly realized that Leonardo was a gem. He moved us smoothly thru the sites. Leonardo is a knowledgeable, intelligent, well-informed guide. He speaks English well. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Rome with Leonardo.


Luca has been awesome! I hade a fantastic experience in Rome where Luca was very informative, polite and so kind with my daughter. He showed my family all the most popular attraction of Rome in short time (just 7 hours) including a lunch in a delicious local Italian restaurant. I really enjoyed the trip with Luca.


Leonardo was fantastic at explaining the history of all the main historical sites. We didn’t want to spend very long at each site as it was hot and very busy and Leonardo accommodated our needs very well. If you want to see as much as Rome as possible in a day then I highly recommend this tour!!
