Ruza was polite, adjusting and showed us the parts of the park which we would otherwise miss if we were on our own. She had good understanding of the area and artifacts around.

Ruza was great! She escorted us around the Borgesia Villa and shared wonderful stories. On our own, we would have never seen past the trees and marble. Ruza stories had us laughing and surprised. I would highly recommend this tour!!
