Marisa was awesome! She picked us up right at our hotel. We used the public transportation to get around which was another great adventure. It also helped us with traveling our remaining days after her tour because she gave us advice, and showed us the ropes. Her knowledge of the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and other sites along... More

I spent many hours trying to find a guide for both the Vatican and the Colosseum. My biggest concern being I was traveling with my children ages 12, 10 and 6 as I knew they would get bored quickly. Marisa was truly a find! She was wonderful in helping me to plan tours that would keep my children engaged and... More

My two daughters and I had the pleasure of having Marissa as our tour guide for the Colliseum, Palantine and Roman Forum. I specifically wanted an archeologist as a tour guide and we feel very fortunate to have found Marisa. She was fantastic! Her knowledge and love of Roman history is extensive and she exudes enthusiasm during her tour. It... More

We chose Marisa to be our guide specifically because she is also a trained archaeologist and therefore brings a depth of knowledge to her tours that most other guides can't. Her tours of the Palatine, the Forum, San Clemente, the underground Roman Houses and Ostia Antica were superb, incredibly informative and lots of fun. Marisa's knowledge and passion for Rome... More

We stayed only a few days in Rome and the private tour with Marisa saved us enormous amounts of time since we were able to avoid the long lines of tourists waiting to get into the Vatican Museum. Marisa selected items from the collection to direct our attention to and explained their significance as we walked. She also previewed the... More

We had a very enjoyable and informative tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and The Palatine. We found Marissa to be a very interesting and knowledgeable guide. An added feature of this tour is the access to the underground levels of the Colosseum. We found this particularly interesting to walk down the Gladiators entrance to the arena.

Marisa took us to the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and other main attractions. Marisa was fun, enthusiastic and made us feel like we were in great hands. Our family included my... More

My partner and I visited Rome in February 2014 as a joint birthday present, and his special treat for me was a private tour. His research told him that Marisa was the best around and her Daily Life in Ancient Rome tour sounded ideal, so we got in contact and soon enough we were strolling around the baths of Caracalla,...

Marisa was one of the best tour guides we've ever had. We booked her for two days over the holiday week to tour with our family. Having an 8 & 12 year old...you have to hope for a tour guide that can keep it interesting, fast paced and fun. She did all of those things. She was incredibly accommodating to... More

I did three half day private tours with Marisa. She was just lovely. I had been to Rome before and had seen most of the usual stuff. She did a great job of suggesting tours of sites that are off the beaten path . . . very interesting and not crowded. The weather was a challenge. She was great to... More
