Here is what our Guests have written about Anno Domini
Thank you for your message. We very much enjoyed the day that we spent with Tatiana. We found her to be extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her insights into the places that we were visiting. Since we had such a short time in Rome it was important for us to have someone to help us focus on the important things that we had wanted to see. She certainly did that. Even towards the end of our fairly long day I had no trouble attending to what she was saying, this was largely due to how interesting and informative her comments were. We also appreciated the skill with which she dealt with the rather unusual day in Rome (the day that Bush visited with the Pope). Her ability to negotiate this made it possible for us to see the things that we wanted to. I have used private tour guides on other trips, and I have to say that I got more out of the day with Tatiana than with any of the others. She was excellent. Please thank her again for us. She made our day in Rome very special, and made us definitely want to return Italy and spend more time in Rome. I would certainly recommend the tour that Tatiana gave us to anyone considering a trip to Rome. Thanks again for all of your help, and hello and THANKS to Tatiana.
Thanks so much
for the message. We really enjoyed our tour and found the guide informative
and entertaining. I don't have any suggestions for improvement as
we thought the experience to be perfect. It was definitely a highlight
for us. I have recommended you folks to several people at work.
It was fabulous. As you know we recommended you to friends. Our experience makes us want to share this great opportunity with friends. Each day we felt nourished by our tours. The ancient city tour made us love history. Apollo and Diana @ Gallerie Borghese will always be awesome and humbling.
I wanted to personally
thank Tatiana for making the tour of the Vatican ABSOLUTELY THE BEST
TOUR I HAVE EVER HAD! I was reluctant at first due to the length of
the line, but am sooo thankful that Tatiana had the foresight and
expertise to show me the errors of my thinking. Again, the most informative
and insightful tour I have ever had. Tatiana, you get an A+
Anno Domini Foundation,
Our tour with
Sev was fantastic. Booking this tour was the best decision we made
in Rome. His knowledge and passion was greatly appreciated. He spent
a great deal of time with us and answered all of our questions. I
would recommend your tour to anyone traveling to Rome and would take
another tour with you myself.
John and Laura Noel
We were extremely
pleased with Alexander. We had the good fortune to have him all to
ourselves. It was the most informative of all our tours. You can't
beat one on one. We would certainly recommend you to our friends that
are traveling and would use your services again ourselves. Thank you
and thank Alexander for wonderful memories. Sincerely,
My husband Eric and I appreciated the time and attention that we received from the Anno Domini Foundation. Please give our regards to Sev, we really enjoyed his style of presenting the places and information to us. We also want to thank Tania for the time we spent exploring the churches, we learned so much. We loved Italy and plan to return. We have, and will, continue to recommend your company and call upon you again when we visit. Best regard, Tammy Wallis
Dear Anno Dommini:
As you can guess, we must have enjoyed and appreciated your tour service or else we would not have had Sev as our guide on three different days. He did an outstanding job, is very knowledgeable and a very nice person. All three of the tours were great and I especially enjoyed our afternoon at the Borghese Gallery. Sev even taught us how to cross streets and gave me what turned out to be valuable information on catching a train. We will recommend your tour programs and Sev to others. Please give our regards to Sev. regards, Olmsted
My wife and I
just got back from Italy. Your tours were the best and we had several
to compare against. I thought it was most important for you to know
that the two tours that we took with Anno Domini were better than
the tours were took with Scala even though their prices were higher.
Being a native of Rome, I think Sev made the tour extremely interesting.
Thank you very
much for a fabulous tour of St. Peter's and the Vatican chambers.
It was without a doubt a highlight of our 3 weeks in Italy. Sev is
incomparable as a guide and his knowledge is incredible! We will highly
recommend your service and Sev to all of our friends. Many, many thanks!
I'm happy to
provide feedback to you -- we haven't stopped talking about what a
great "find" the Anno Domini tours are, and how fortunate
we feel to have discovered Sev! We are telling everyone that seeing
Rome should only be done through your foundation. Sev's enthusiasm
and love for history and art is catchy, and the breadth of his knowledge
base is impressive. However, what was most impressive to us was the
way he imparted all this information. It's one thing to have a lot
of information -- it's another to share it in such a way as to rivet
your guests’ interest while you are sharing it. We hope to return
for a third trip to Italy, and you can be sure we will call on you
again! Many thanks,
I am so glad
I have an opportunity through your follow up e-mail, to tell you how
happy Joanne and I were with our day with Sev. Although we were just
a group of 2, we felt like the most important people who had ever
received a guide! Sev of course, is extremely well informed, not only
in the arts but he was able to answer "off topic" questions
such as those we had on Mussolini, the role of the Church during WWII,
home ownership in Rome, etc. Being a bit of a history buff, I was
re-assured with his information when we wandered into areas where
I had some information, and he was right on! Most of the day however,
we were on topics where he had all the information, and he was excellent
at making it come alive. His "prep" for our going into the
Sistine Chapel could have been the high light of the trip! Of interest
is that on the following night we were in Campo Fiori having dinner
when Sev came in with a group of about 10 people. As his presentation
was coming over to an end, we went over to say hello, however, the
group kept asking questions and we finally gave up without saying
hello, and telling him once again how much we had enjoyed our day
together. We enjoyed watching him "in action", as he was
so courteous as the questions kept coming in, answering each question
fully. Thanks for following up on what was a terrific day, and please
say hello to Sev for us.
I just wanted
to let you know that Sev was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable
and personable, and we enjoyed our tour. I will be sure to recommend
your guide service to any of my friends that might be traveling to
Italy in the near future.
What a wonderful time Kathryn Perino and I had with Sev as our guide through the Colosseum, the Forum, and the Pantheon! Sev's knowledge, enthusiam, and love for his subject were apparent throughout the afternoon. It was truly an extraordinary learning experience. I will certainly recommend Anno Domini to friends. Agnes Colaneri
Our three tours,
guided by Sev, while in Rome were a delight and in some ways the highlight
of our European vacation.
On behalf of Jane and myself I want to thank you again for the time you spent with us touring the Vatican!! We enjoyed every minute of it!! Your passion and your professionalism would be hard to match!! You really know Rome! The Tour Guide we were with before we got to Rome would possibly be interested in your services, I will give him the Foundations Web Site and your name and he may be in touch with you sometime in the future. Jane and I hope to come back to Rome someday, if so, we will look you up! Peace, Linda Ferreira
Dear Anno Domini,
We would be most
happy to tell you that we thoroughly and completely enjoyed our 2
days with Sev. He truly exposed the entirety of Ancient Rome and the
Vatican to us in the highest possible intellectual manner. He was
very personable and friendly, he literally "opened our eyes"
to Rome and we absolutely loved every minute of it. We now count Rome
as a favorite destination and will probably be back for a few days
in 2005. You can be sure that every day that we are in Rome we will
be going somewhere with Sev if his schedule permits.
I should be thanking
you for having such a professional and extremly knowledgeable person
as one of your representatives! We truly enjoyed Anna and all that
she shared with us! Please know that as our friends travel to Italy
will recommed Anno Domini Tours! Sincerely,
Dear Anno Domini Foundation, We are so happy to have found your organization and cannot begin to thank you for the wonderful tour we had with Sev. He is very pleasant and made our visit to the Vatican the best experience we had in Rome. I will highly recommend your company to any friends that are visiting Rome. We wished we had time to take your other tours and hope to do so on our next visit to Italy. Currently, we are in Florence. Do you know of any organization that runs tours similar to yours here in this city? If you could recommend a company, we would be most appreciative. Best Regards, Grazie mille and Buon Natale! Mr. and Mrs. Johnson
Our tour was
wonderful! Milena (and Marco) were so knowledgeable and generous with
their time! We certainly peppered Milena with questions, and she was
very, very patient with us. The most valuable service she provided
was keeping us on track and moving forward at the Vatican Museums.
Without her, we would still be
Anno-Domini Tours, Thank you for providing such an excellent tour! It was a fabulous experience that completed a wonderful trip to Rome. Anna, the guide, was very knowledgeable and added insight into the art and history of the Vatican. The small group size was also a plus. On behalf of myself, and my aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Gross, we would like to say thank you for an incredible tour! Thanks again. Regina Chesney
We were so happy and grateful for the wonderful tour that we had at the Vatican. All four of us, including our 2 sons (high school and college) thought that Sev was terrific and knew everything. Wow, what a guy! We don't think that he stopped talking for 5 hours. He was erudite, explained all at our levels and we couldn't have asked for any more wonderful a tour guide. As you know, you had signed up for a group tour but the other party of 2 didn't show so we had Sev all to ourselves! Sev did wait for more than 15 minutes after the meeting time and then called the office for permission to take off. Don't know what happened to the other party but it was their loss and our gain. Also, you should know how I got your name. I googled for Italy/ Vatican tours and then thought to pick a name far down on the list. So, you were on page 14 and had a Latin name so I thought there would be a Catholic connection, there. Then, when I read the reviews and your literature, I believed that it sounded more educated and erudite than most of the other tours. So, that's why I picked your name. Then, and not least, you were terrific at answering my questions and emails and I believe that good service up front usually indicates good service elsewhere. Thanks again for making our trip to the Vatican so enjoyable and don't forget to send me Sev's last name. Be sure that I will give out your name when I know of others going to Rome. Thanks, Bill Lewis.
We loved sev and thought he was a fabulous guide. My children learned so much. It was a great experience. thank you Janet Mavec
Dear Anno Domini:
This was the best thing that we did in Rome, it was wonderful and Sev our guide was incredible. I told many people about this tour and hope that I have managed to generate some good business with you. If I ever return to Rome, which I hope to do, I will take several more tours with your group, hopefully with Sev! Thanks again for all your help, Gerry Weinmaster
We wanted you all to know that our time with Sev proved to be one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. We particularly enjoyed the extra effort he put into his explanations. His willingness to go beyond the ordinary helped to make missing out on the Sistine Chapel an acceptable loss. Unfortunatly, I had my pocket picked at the Colisuem on Sunday during the Ascension ceremony which put a damper on our stay in Rome. But, we had a great trip anyway. I've recommended you to several people we met in Italy that were still to go to Rome and to everyone I've talked to here at home as well. God Bless and "kkep up the good work." Mike Starks
My wife and I are now back in the US from our 3 week stay in Italy. I just wanted to send an email thanking all involved with our tour and reservations. I especially want you to pass on our thanks to our tour guide Anna. She was wonderful and was a pleasure to be with. She really put everything into the tour to make it most memorable. She was very professional, but also very personal in her presentation of the Vatican history and points of interest. My wife would like to send her a thank you note. We did not get her last name. Could you please email me her address or email address so that we could thank her again? Thanks again for everything.Jerry
Wonderful, wonderful. there were but 6 in our group. it was AWESOME for us (maybe not for you guys). Anna was great, very knowledgable, very personable. Sincerely, Ivy Oxendine
Thank you for the message. I have meant to give you feedback as Richard and I found Anna to be most wonderful! She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We could not have picked a better guide in Rome and will recommend her to any friends that are coming your way. Thank you Anna! Donna L. Veitch
Alex was great and i will recommend your services to anyone who goes to Rome-thanks for all your help. Ann
It was very nice
to get home and receive a "Welcome Back from your trip"
email from your organization. Thank you very much. It made us pause
in the middle of the day to remember fondly our trip to Italy and,
in particular, our tour of the Vatican with Sev. Both my husband and
I truly appreciated the phenomenal depth of Sev's historical knowledge
of the church and art, and his ability to communicate this information
in a clear and interesting way. As someone who has had some experience
with groups, I was also very impressed with how he, in a very natural
manner, made sure everyone felt included in the group. He had an excellent
way of responding to comments or questions - and always gave thought-provoking
responses. A wonderful skill for an educator to have and a gift for
all of us on the tour. Thanks again to Sev and to your organization.
You can be sure we will recommend Anno-Domini to our friends.
Anno Domini, Our tour of the vatican well exceeded our expectations. Anna was very knowledgeable, and spent ample time with us. We all learned a lot on the tour and had an excellent time. I will recomend your foundation to others going to Rome and will use your foundation again in the future. Thanks for a great tour. Kristin Bornstein
ATTN: Customer Relations Dept.: In response to your e-mail of June 3rd, my wife and I were extremely pleased with your services, as well as your guide, Sev, with whom we attended the Vatican City. I have recommended your firm to others who are contemplating visiting Rome, and I suggested to them that they be in contact with you for organizing a tour. Very truly yours, Michael J. Wexler [MJW:ama]
Thank you very much for absolutely splendid trip! We appreciate all the care that Tatiana gave us and all the knowledge shared. We'll be looking forward to work with you again! Most cordially, Fr.Ilya
We are back and wanting to be back already!!! We had a wonderful time in Rome and we cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our tours. Ana and Sev were so knowledegable we were very impressed. Thanks again for helping us have an amazing time. MF and Alex Sardina
Thank you. It's good to be home and I must say the trip home had it's adventures taking almost 30 hours! I want you to know that Sev made our vacation to Italy the best ever!! His tour was a walk through time. Speaking for all of us, Sev went beyond, way beyond, our expectations. We expected the Vatican to be one of the highlights but having such a brilliant guide placed the event number one on our list. We found Sev very professional, organized, personable and delightful. In other words - great!! As for recommending your organization for excursion services - we already have and will continue to do so. Regards, Carolyn Martin
We really enjoyed our tour. Sev is an exceptional guide and he made our visit to the Vatican truly memorable. Many thanks to Sev and your organization. Best regards, Walt Eaton
Dear Anno Domini Foundation !!! We had a nice time in Rome indeed...Next time we'll spend more time for Rome and Italy. And our choise will be favour of Anno Domini Foundation ONLY!!! As to Sev Borzak...this's high class professional guide and very communicative! Welcome to Riga!!! Great thanks once again. With best regards, Marina
Hi, We have just returned from our trip to Italy. While there, we visited Rome, Lucca, Florence, Venice and Milan. They were all very different! Our time in Rome was spent mainly touring the historic sites, and our 2 A.D. tours, which somehow ended up as private tours with just our family and Sev, were highlights of our trip.We also took a tour of the Vatican museum and St. Peter's with Icon Tours, due to scheduling conflicts with your stated tour times. We all wish we had been able to take that tour with Sev as well. Our tour guide with Icon was good, but although less expensive, that tour was very large and therefore not nearly as enjoyable. I don't recall where I found your company on the internet, but I do not believe I saw it referenced on Rick Steves, Slowtrav.com, tripadvisor.com or Fodor's.com. When I get the chance, I intend to post on all those sites and sing your praises. Everything about Zev's approach, all the information, his pleasant manner, and even his steering us to a lovely dinner on the Piazza Farnese, was just a treat. Thanks very much, and whenever we get to Rome again, we will look for your tours again without a doubt. Sincerely, Desi Franklin
Sev and Anno Domini: No, thank YOU for the fabulous tour by Sev! Sev referred us to a wonderful Vatican book for further information and pictures. It brings us right back to our time in the Vatican. I still can't believe I was there! We had a great 2 weeks in Italy and looking forward to going back. I will definitely recommend Anno Domini to my friends, family and colleagues. Thanks again! Barbara Flinn-Hanna, JD, ARM
Without a doubt, our time with Sev was the best value for our money on the entire thirty-three days my wife and I were away from home. Sev is a very knowledgeable fellow and he certainly knows how to present his subject. Without hesitation, I gave Sev's card to a couple from Canada who are planning a trip to Rome with their children later this year. Also, I have given our travel agent the information on your Foundation. Thank you and Sev for having the foresight to establish such a Foundation. Sincerely, Helen and Bob Headen Livingston, Texas
Dear Sev and
everyone at the foundation, We want you to know how much we enjoyed
our tour through the Vatican. It was one of our best days during our
trip to Italy and London. Sev was such a wonderful guide explaining
everything about the history of Rome while we were waiting in line
for 2 hours. He was so interesting, that it was hard to believe we
had waited so long! Our two daughters, 20 and 25, enjoyed and learned
so much from him. We had been in the Vatican last year on a tour,
but for our daughters it was their first time. We learned so much
more from Sev, and understood information more from him than we had
on our last tour. We are truly happy and thank you again, expecially
Sev, for making our day at the Vatican. We always talk about Sev and
the foundation to our friends when we talk
Our tours were
awesome! It would be hard to find a guide more qualified than a PhD
and assistant professor at the University of Rome, and an added
We enjoyed the Vatican tour VERY much! Tatiana provided us with a memorable experience and she exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Sharif & Margaret
What a coincidence – I just signed on to e-mail you about our tour on October 12th of the Vatican. I cannot say enough good about the professionalism Sev displayed, not to mention his vast knowledge of the Vatican history, art and property. He was just excellent. Your tour was well worth the money and we would be glad to recommend your tour to anyone! Thanks again to Sev – he enlightened us to history that we both found so fascinating and art that was overwhelming! It was the best part of our trip! Nancy Longerbeam
Dear Anno Domini,
Anno Domini, Just returned to the States from Rome...Was fortunate enough to have Sev for our Ancient Rome Tour....WONDERFUL !!! Even my 16 yr old nephew can rattle off information about the covered monuments. Sev made every moment in history alive and waiting to be discovered! I will be sure to tell every traveller about your foundation. Thank you for a grand experience. J.F. New Jersey, USA
