First time visitors to Rome, had Friday late evening, all day Saturday, and half day Sunday. Marco is charming, quick witted and has vast knowledge of The Eternal City. Night time tour of The Vatican was amazing, mostly foot tour (with the exception of one quick taxi ride) during the weekend. Be sure to ask Marco about the story behind... More

We traveled as a family of 9 including 4 children. Marco was so accommodating, informative and entertaining for all of us. We toured 3 days with him seeing the... More

We were thrilled with Marco Pontuali's services as a guide. We were a family of 6 which included 3 children. He was considerate at all times with the children's needs, without frustration while he kept us all engaged with excellent and factually correct and interesting descriptions of where we were and what we were seeing. He would speak to adults... More

I recently visited Rome for three days after a Mediterranean cruise, and my travel agent highly recommended that I tour with Marco. Marco picked me up at Civitavecchia, and we toured through the countryside into Rome. He pointed out the sites along the way; and we toured several small towns, Lake Bracciano, and Castello Orsini Odescalchi. Marco is very knowledgeable... More

Marco arranged a tailor-made programme for the Top Managers of our group for 4 days in Rome. Every one of the 26 participants was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism and his delightful personality. The best incentive trip ever for our group and this thanks to Marco.

Marco was absolutely first rate. He worked with our travel agent to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. His knowledge and passion for Rome's treasures showed in every site he shared. His enthusiasm and expertise were contagious. We spent 4 days with him, and we were treated to sights seldom seen by the average visitor to Rome. His access to hidden areas... More
