We are expats living in Italy. Our friends recommended Ana and we selected a tour of the Vatican and the Vatican Museums. Ana’s knowledge of Italian Art History plus her enthusiasm and energy during the tour were amazing. My husband wants to study Italian Art History and then schedule additional tours with Ana. Ana is fantastic.

Dear Tina! please accept my apologies for this very delayed response, as you know this year sure is being a heck of a challenge, I have, am being away most of the time, as there's literally no one here, in fact touring you guys made my Day! it was amazing, I was so moved! I loved every moment, true we had to have the masks on, but nevertheless, the Vatican was just for us in ''the heart of peak season'' it was unbelievable how incredible that was, and having you all being so appreciative it was simply the cherry on the top! Thank you Thank you!

We would love visitors to Rome to know about Ana Serra of Selected Tours and the extraordinary and gifted tour guide she is. If you are a visitor that is passionate about the places you like to visit then Ana is for you. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for telling you the story behind the facts is unparalleled in my experience and for that reason her tours are truly memorable. We first went on a tour with Ana in 2013 and have been on trips with her on many occasions since. Our latest excursion in Rome in July 2020 proved to be another standout experience with Ana taking us effortlessly through the Vatican Apartments and Basilica of St Peter regaling us with outstanding explanations of all that we were viewing and admiring. If you want a few hours of tremendous entertainment and knowledge gathering with the assistance of a guide to bring everything to life for you then I urge you to look no further than Ana at Selected tours. I would also add that Ana takes your safety very seriously and at this difficult time of Pandemic Ana always had our safety front and centre in her mind. Careful distancing, mask wearing, temperature checks were all part of the essentials of the tour. Book Ana, she is truly extraordinary.

Even though I have visited Rome many times and as a British expat living in the central region of Italy, Umbria, I was still keen to visit Rome and be a tourist for a day especially in this post-lockdown period. Usually in July, Rome is one of the most crowded cities in the world due to the sheer number of international visitors. But now, Rome is very different. Quiet. Peaceful. And a unique time to visit Rome. After 3 months of closure, the Vatican Museums OPENED on 1st June. Queues are usually upwards of 2-3 hours in the peak summer season. So, knowing that Rome would be quiet, this is a perfect time to visit. Our friends recommended Anna from Selected Tours to take us on a 3 hour guided tour. We were immediately drawn in by Anna’s bubbly and friendly welcome! We waltzed into the museum. No queues! None!!! Safety measures are in place. 🚶‍♀️ 🚶🏻‍♂️Physical Distancing 😷 Mandatory Masks 🤒 Temperature Check 👮‍♂️ Reduced Capacity are all standard. Anna is highly knowledgeable and personable and fun! But there is something else, something special about Anna. Not like any other tour guide I’ve met. Anna is a story teller, Anna helps you understand the painting by transporting you back in time to Michaelangelo and Raffaello. Once you know the story, you find yourself ‘in’ the painting. An extraordinary talent! If you want to be tourist for a day in Rome, go to the Vatican Museums and enjoy the quiet corridors and savour the art in peace while you still can. And book Anna to take you around. You won’t be disappointed!

Amazing, amazing, amazing! We first met Ana in 2015, when we secured her for a day tour of Rome. In 2019 Ana made our travel arrangements and arranged all our tours for Cinque Terre, Amalfi Coast and Rome. Everything was perfect! Ana is extremely knowledgeable, very professional but at the same time, full of life and so much fun. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone who will listen to me sing her praises. Love you Ana.

My husband and I want to give a huge “shoutout” to Ana Serra/Selected Tours. We had the opportunity to have Ana as our private tour guide in Rome for 2 days. We worked together online and by phone to make the most of out time in Rome. To say she is a fantastic advocate of Italy is an understatement. Her knowledge, love and excitement of and for everything Italy is a blessing to watch, hear and experience. Hands down, she is the best of the best in the tour guide industry in Rome and beyond. Our accommodations and travel arrangements were perfect and planned by Ana. Ana, also, helped us with arrangements for the Papal visit and blessing at the Vatican on our 3rd day in Rome. Lots of pointers and tips given to make the the event one of our most cherished ever! Ana arranged for our travel to Florence where she had a wonderful tour guide waiting for us to tour as many sights that we could fit in for a day there. Again, the hotel accommodations Ana arranged were lovely! We rented a car and left Florence for Tuscany where Ana had booked us at a small castle run as a B&B. It was centrally located and easy drives to all the points of interests(and Wineries) that we wanted to visit. Needless to say that we have continued to keep in touch with Ana and so look forward to being with our Italian friend again. Soo, if you want the best Italian experience ever, please give Ana Serra/ Selected Tours a call or email. I promise that you will never regret it. Kae and Don Jehle Cashiers, NC

Dear Kae and Don, your review is the reason that I have not closed down my company in this extremely challenging year. I'm without words at this moment, and that's hard for me, as you know I talk coming out of my ears! but it is true, I love what I do, my employees are the same we all reason with the same exact energy. It's really amazing what we have created over here, and when we get these reviews, its simply the strength for us to hold it together this year, and pray for someone to come up for the cure to kick the living daylights out of COVID! I hope I'm allowed to say this now. lol, I love you guys, thank you for your support. until we see each other again, stay safe baci from Italia
