Italy is such a special country that I warmly suggest you to hire always a local and qualified guide for your trip.
Only a local guide is able to provide you very good service for your family, planning the perfect tour (with local tips).
That's why, even I live only 2 hours from Pompei or Florence, for your daytrip from Rome I'll suggest you to contact someone that lives and breathe the local history.

Hello, I'm Francesca and I'm a qualified local guide of Florence. I'm proud of being Florentine and my mission is to transmit the love for my city to all my guests (I don't really like the word 'tourist', I prefer much more 'guests' or even better 'travellers'). I have been working in tourism for the last 8 years. I'm knowledgable, passionate, I enjoy my job, and I love showing you the real spirit of Florence. Give the best value to your time discovering Florence with me!

In Europe rules about guiding are different, each nation has different laws.
But again I'll go local even in Madrid, Berlin, or London..

"I grew up during the Cold War in the communist part of Germany. After the fall of the Berlin Wall I took advantage of the new freedoms, went to school in England, and came to Berlin 20 years ago to study history. Today I hold a masters degree in modern German history. I started guiding people on tours ten years ago, and throughout this time I said to myself: “This is what I want to do.” I love history, I love Berlin, and I find it a fascinating experience to meet people from all over the world.
I design tailor-made tours - each according to what travellers are interested in, whether its sightseeing, stories, shopping, museums or getting some excellent hearty food"
