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

Thank you so much for the nice review!! I'm very happy and flattered by your comments. For sure I've really loved to take you around Rome: you've selected an incredible amount of archaeological sites. Few times we have the chance to take clients at Cerveteri or at the Quintili Villa, so thanks for your choice! We had a great week... More

After searching through the hundreds of people offering their tour services, and almost falling into the trap of what would basically be a taxi driver masquerading as a tour-guide, we found Marisa. We had 2 days available to soak up the history of Rome, my wife and i and 2 children of 12 and 16, and that plan Marissa tailored... More

Our days with Marisa were phenomenal. She is a scholar in Roman Archeology and an expert in Roman history. She was very engaging with my children who were interested the entire time. She knew where to go and when so we would bypass crowds. She even adjusted our tours at the last minute to account for weather and special functions... More

Dear Nurum, many months from our tour, but I still remember with your smile your family. Touring Rome with kids is a challenge, bumpy floors and tours with many details, but we made it easily, thanks to your patience and interest. Thanks Marisa More

We'd recommend Marisa as a tour guide. She is a knowledgeable and intelligent lady, who has a great flair for imparting the information to make her tours interesting. We are a family of 4, including 15 and 16 year old daughters. Marisa gave us a half day's walking tour; introducing us to Rome. Telling us best locations for ice-creams, shopping,... More
