We are a family of three (Mom, Dad & teenage son) from Ontario Canada. We travel often, and are very interested in learning about the history of the places we visit. For this reason we like to hire private guides whenever possible. We had the good fortune to be able to hire Marisa as our guide on our recent trip... More

Marisa made visiting Rome a pleasure and easy. My husband and 76 year old mom visited Rome in July during a heat wave. Thank goodness we had Marisa, she knew the best time of day to visit the historic sights and was instrumental in getting us through the lines. She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Rome and how... More

Marisa is an archaeologist who has lived her entire life in Rome. She walked us through Vatican museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's sharing important facts and little known anecdotes that brought new appreciation for what we thought we already knew so much about. But her love of her ancient city brought life to what might be viewed as... More

Initially my wife and I were going to do a group tour of the forum. Since I preferred to focus on certain aspects of the forum, more than others plus I always have lots of questions, I looked for a private guide and chose Marisa based on her trip advisor reviews. Not only did our tour focus on exactly what... More

We booked Marisa for two days, one full day walking tour to see just about everything in Rome from Spanish Steps to Pantheon to the Colosseum to the Forum and a ton of stuff in between. We asked her to set up whatever VIP stuff should could such as the lower and upper levels of the Colosseum. I must say... More

Hi David, many thanks for the nice review! I'm glad you liked my tours, I did my best to provide a special experience for you both at the Colosseum and at the Vatican. I'm sorry if you felt rushed at the Vatican Museums! You booked the Vatican Museum by night, so the visit was focused on the Museum and the... More

I was in contact with Marisa before our trip to Rome for my husbands 50th and daughters 21st this April. She emailed me before we arrived with detailed information about what the tour would entail and was very efficient if I had any questions. Both before and during our trip, Marisa went that little bit further to make our experience... More

We spent yesterday afternoon and this morning touring The Vatican and Ancient Rome with Marisa. She is very knowledgable about the city and has a genuine love for sharing Rome with her guests. I traveled with my wife and two children, eleven and eight years old. She was very good with the children. This was my third trip to Rome,... More

Rome can be so dizzying with the choices, sights, sounds, history, food. There is so much to see and do, I felt a bit paralyzed trying to negotiate it on my own. And, of course, I wanted to get the BEST possible experience while in this amazing city. THAT is what Marisa gave me. I have been to Rome twice... More

Marisa is a highly professional guide. She knows ancient Rome like she lived there then, and she brings the city back to life with her stories. The crowds in the Forum and Palatine just melted away as we traveled in a time bubble around the ruins with Marisa. If you visit Rome without a guide, you will miss the point,... More

Marisa was exceptional! Rome was our first stop of 6 cities. She did set the bar very high for others tour guides to follow. Her knowledge and passion for her city were impeccable. We spent 3 days with Marisa. Each day unveiled remarkable information and history that made our Roma discovery so interesting. Marisa is genuine and displays pride in... More
