Ruza shared in a fascinating and friendly way her vast knowledge of Roman history, art and culture. It was a pleasure to see highlights of Rome which we would not have spotted on our own!

Da wir nur wenige Teilnehmer waren, hatten wir quasi eine Privattour mit Ruza. Sie hat uns sehr viel über die Villa Borghese und die gesamte Parkanlage erzählt und uns die Geschichte Roms näher gebracht. Wir haben sehr viele schöne und interessante Plätze besucht, die wir ohne sie nicht gefunden hätten. Sehr zu empfehlen!
