Rome – Sage Traveling Client Testimonials


Rome Accessible Vacation

I am grateful for the exceptional service provided by Jennifer and Donna throughout the planning stages of our Italy vacation. No one in our party had ever traveled outside the United States so this trip was very special to us. For my mother, it was her lifelong dream to travel to Italy. I’m glad I trusted Sage Travel to help make her dream come true. Our vacation was amazing.

From the moment we arrived in Rome everything went as planned. Our drivers were always early or right on time. Our tour guides were outstanding! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic while sharing the history of the cities we were visiting and describing the artwork we were seeing.

While our private guide was talking directly to us I noticed large groups passing by. The people were all wearing headphones and following a tour guide 30 feet away holding a flag so they didn’t get lost. That is NOT the way to tour Italy. Private guided tours by Sage are worth every penny!

Sage selected wonderful Hotels for each city we visited. All were wheelchair accessible and accommodating to our needs. All hotels included breakfast and it was much more than coffee and donuts! Fresh meats, cheeses, pastries, even bacon and eggs! If you are considering a handicapped accessible trip, but don’t want the hassle of planning it yourself I highly recommend Sage Travel!

Hello Donna,

We would like to thank Sage Traveling for helping us with our 5th year wedding anniversary vacation to Rome, Italy. The wheelchair accessible Hotel in central Rome was great and had easy access to all the tourist attractions. The room was a bit small than what we are use to, but we managed and we simply loved the friendly staff at the hotel, the delightful food, and the charm the hotel had to offer. If we encountered a problem they were more than willing to help us out. My husband used his power chair to get across Rome. The cobblestone pathways were not a problem for the most part and our tour guides were very helpful at choosing paths that were barrier free when strolling to the attractions. We are very pleased to say that it was indeed a successful vacation and we received more than what we had imagined. It was an incredibly comfortable and worry-free vacation and we have Sage Traveling to thank for such a memorable time. We appreciate all your help and hard work for making our dream vacation come true. We will be using Sage Traveling again for our next adventure as this trip has motivated my husband to explore the world and all it has to offer despite being wheelchair bound. Thank you Sage Traveling.

Rome Accessible Tours 

Dear Jennifer,
We are about to leave Rome after a fantastic few days. This was made possible by a marvelous Vatican tour on our first day. Could you please send our thanks to your guide for that day. She was so helpful, from the moment we stepped out of the cab in front of the museum. Her tour was so informative & she was also such a nice character as well. She was also so helpful as regards our arrangements to attend the Pope’s audience on the Wednesday, we have some marvelous photos of il Papa.
Once again many thanks & I will be sure to use your services again when the opportunity arises.

I would like to comment on what an excellent 2 trips we had in Rome. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained things well.   He gave over and above what we expected.  Thank you.

Dear Donna:

I wanted to let you and Mr. Sage know that we loved our accessible private tour of the Vatican.  The tour guide (Viviana) was great….very knowledgeable and personable and made the entire day a real pleasure. People often neglect to write when someone does a good job but I wanted you to know that this guide did a GREAT job.  All four of us in our group were thrilled with her. Thanks again for everything. Best regards,



The tours have been wonderful. Definitely recommend Sage as my favorite tour group ever!!!! The guides and driver have been amazing and the individual tours are amazing. It has been a beautiful, well planned trip and the convenience of getting picked up at our hotel has been a God send!!!

My husband and I took our tour of the Vatican and it was fabulous. We loved our tour guide and are really hoping you can forward an email to her with our thanks because unfortunately we didn’t write down her full name or any contact info to be able to send her a note.  To Sage Traveling we want to say that we are completely satisfied with our experience and although the cost seemed very high, Ulla made it more than worth it. She was super professional AND personal at the same time. She was an expert at communicating with officials, navigating the accessible routes and helping us get to the places that we wanted to go. Her knowledge of history and details about Rome, The Vatican, the buildings and museum displays was amazing! We got the education and experience of a lifetime and it was because of her. After traveling all through Europe for 3 weeks, we overheard and saw many tour guides and we are so glad we got someone like Ulla.. We want you to know how much we recommend her and hope you will appreciate her and how well she does her job and represents your company.  Thank You so much,

I just want to thank Sage Traveling for arranging an incredible experience for me and my husband.
Leah, our guide, was friendly, helpful and very informative – she found my husband a wheelchair – which was vital amongst the jostling crowds, guided us through the museums, sistine chapel and basilica with courtesy and knowledge. My husband was “in awe” and I could not have wished for a greater gift to give him. My thanks,


Thank you so much for helping us arrange the private tour of the vatican. It was wonderful and our guide Claudia took great care of my parents and gave us so much information. I wish we could have spent more time there. It was beautiful. Thanks again,


Hi Donna,

I have to write and express our thanks for the brilliant tour round the Vatican last week. We were met by our Guide Marta who was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about all things Roman and Vatican and did not push the religious aspect onto us, which bearing in mind where we were was quite a feat. She showed us a totally different way of looking at things and made what could have been a boring visit for the 13 year old interesting as well as for the three adults. My partner was provided with a wheelchair very quickly, and Marta looked after everything, got us through the lines quickly it really was first class service. Thank you so much for facilitating such a fantastic visit. Regards,



Our trip was wonderful and the hotels and guided tours provided by Sage were exactly what we needed. Probably a once in a lifetime experience but if we do return to Europe, or anywhere for that matter, we will first confer with Sage for great information, accommodations and tours. Attached is a photo of myself with my wife and daughter, my sleepy son missing this one again, at the Colosseum in Rome.  

Thanks you all so much, Daniel 



My wife (MS patient) and I recently returned from our first trip to Italy. We almost chickened out because of all the information on the web about how difficult it is to travel in Europe with a disability.Then we found your site. Thanks for not only the information but the confidence you gave us to go for it. We booked a Vatican tour through your company while in Rome. Emily coordinated the tour and did a great job. I really wanted to call out our tour guide, Titziana. She was fun and engaging; and knew her stuff. She made the tour of the Vatican museum and St. Peter’s an incredible experience.I just really cannot say enough about her. Just a wonderful and amazing experience. Thanks again for what you do. And kudos to your staff!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  The tour guide that you arranged for us, and the tour of the Vatican that she took us on, was absolutely fabulous!!!  The tour guide found us as we arrived at the prearranged spot outside the entrance to the museums. She was able to bypass the (massive) lines and get us inside the Vatican quickly and facilitated the purchase of the tickets.  She then led us on a wonderful tour of the museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica, and was even able to get us into the old areas under the Basilica to view the area that has the tomb of St. Peter.  She relayed an enormous amount of information and insights about the Vatican and everything we were seeing.  She made sure to include my wheelchair bound daughter in her talk and often would kneel or squat down so that she could describe things to Catherine directly and make sure that she was included. She was also very adept at leading us through the crowds of other tourists so that we did not waste time waiting unnecessarily.  Without her guidance, we would have been completely lost, and without her knowledge and experience we would not have known what we were seeing.

I unfortunately do not remember the name of the guide, but I am hoping that you can relay our profound thanks for the tour and for her caring, thoughtful, and thoroughly enjoyable tour.

Thank you again, Cliff
