Richard Thomes

We have been to Europe nine times and this was by far the best trip we have taken. The trip had an excellent agenda and every place we stopped was exciting. The guides were full of knowledge and spoke excellent English. After 10 days we were not ready to come back home. We would love to tour with ProRome again.

Kathy Brydon

I recently enjoyed a pilgrimage with ProRome to Rome and southern Italy. The passionate enthusiasm of our guide, Joe Long, gave this trip a great deal of added enjoyment. Mr. Long was extremely knowledgeable about the sites that we visited. I was also impressed by his sincere concern for the individuals on his trip, making sure that those with special needs, especially dietary, we cared for. His attention to detail made our excursions run smoothly. The accommodations were excellent. I am looking forward to other trips with this company.

Lita Hess

We had the trip of a lifetime to Italy. It was as perfect as humanly possible. Joe tried to meet any needs that arose with individuals, his planning made it so we could see and learn as much as possible in the time we had. I was extremely happy with our accommodations. I have a hard time calling it a pilgrimage because I had so much fun along the way. The restaurant choices were great too. Thanks so much!
