Ewout, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Originally from Netherlands, I lived most of my life in Italy and traveled a lot in all parts of the world during my student life, and after. My best memories are in Laos where I did my research for my thesis while studying history in Florence. After setting-up in Rome, I became a writer and a journalist expert on Italy, especially Rome. My last book about Rome came out two months ago... Then, passionate by the italian capital, I decided to create my own tour guiding business to show the city from a local's point of view, focusing on details and anecdotes that make a city unique. Today, I see myself more as an expert companion because I believe curious visitors like to have someone they can exchange with and answer all their questions, because now everybody seeks for authenticity and real experiences. I like to focus my tours on contrasts such as Rome between reality and fiction, showing the movie locations connected to the history of Rome. What I enjoy the most is the possibility to show the city spontaneously, when my guests want to see the Coliseum, Trevi, Pantheon and the other highlights; but at the same time, when they are also interested in the hidden gems and the tours off the beaten tracks making me asking permissions in order to enter in some places usually restricted to the public access. PS : my tours could also be guided by Marije.
