Looking for Local tour guide for Rome

Does anyone know of a good local tour guide to for Rome? We are four adults traveling together and would like a private guide for 2 days?

There a lot of good guides in Rome. We really liked Mia Schettino. More on her here:

we used two: Danielle Hunt at http://www.rome-tours.com/index.php (mirabilia Urbis) and found her very smart, organized and very interesting. We also used Fabrizio at http://mybesttour.com/us.htm . This was a 2 hour tour in a golf cart at the end of our trip and it was wonderful and he was so informative!

I can second the recommendation for Daniella Hunt, an American classics scholar who has lived in Rome for about 20 years. However, if you want her for two full days, you'd better book way in advance. The same is true for any good guide; very few of them have two entire free days on their calendars. Of course, it would cost a fortune as well.

We looked for prices for private guides which was costly, in the end we did a group tour and a private tour with Sky Tours Rome, they helped us by email to work our timing in a way which enabled us to get a private tour on the cheap, Ie choosing a quite day and time.

On The group tour the group was only a few people so it was more than less a private tour.

I found this company offered an excellent service over all

I have been to Rome twice in the last 3 years and each time use Through Eternity Tours, (www.througheternity.com/) for both their private and small group tours. There are 3 in our group, me, my wife, and our 30 year old daughter. We have taken two different Vatican tours, a wine/food and art tour and underground Rome tour. The guides were excellent! On the wine and art tour we were welcomed at each stop like family and had a great time getting a very personal art tour at the same time, stopping into several spots for unique viewings.

My Daughter just got back from a business trip to Rome and had time to use them again for their Caravaggio tour and raved about it.

Have a great time and bring your walking shoes!!
