“Looking forward to return again to Italy with our children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

My husband and I were spending several vacation days in Rome. We decided to get an in-depht tour of the city. We contacted Max and he was very accommodating and easy to set us up. What we got was a wonderful full history art tour. Max turned out to be an encyclopedia of all things Rome. From restaurants to the comings and goings of the Pope. We visited the Vatican on our own so Max took us to many other important POI. No lines, no traffic and everything well timed.
He set us up with a colleague in Florence, so we could have the same personal experience with the charming Heliana, who did the above and beyond to explain all great Renaissance history, palazzos and of course the great David in Florence. We needed more time to cover all things these knowledgeable tour guides have to offer.

“Great guy, great city, great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Max did the impossible, Rome in a day. And we loved it!!!!!!!!!

He picked us up (on time) from the hotel with a luxury Mercedes minivan, showing us the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St Peter and the Colosseum before (a late) lunch.

Max is fun, full of facts an little stories, never short on answers and is fluent in English.

In the afternoon we took it a bit slower and visited the catacombs (Max organized a local guide speaking Dutch, can you believe that????), the Trevi fountain and we had some brief stops at various city highlights.

Definite recommendation!!!!

“Second Time, Even more amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

It was our second visit to Rome around 26th of December until New years. We obviously thought of Max straight away because he is just the best! We decided to go for the none traditional tour, where he took us around great areas of Rome we would have never even knew about! places like the Protestant Cemetery, which in my opinion should be one of the top 10 attractions of Rome.. Magical amazing place with Max explaining all the details and history behind each grave and corner of the Cemetery. We then went for a drive around Circo Massimo and even went outside ancient Rome to see the new city. We Then passed by Apia Antica, where we went to church and walked around that area. The Saint Peter Basilica was also fascinating and Max is very knowledgeable about all the history and art. He then took as to a magical park and area called Parco degli Acquedotti, where we enjoyed the lovely weather and made our way to the most amazing restaurant near Appia Antica and we me the amazing chief Paolo Magnanimi. After the great meal our tour continued with the Panthon and many more amazing attractions! the tour ended with drinking the best coffee in Italy with Max and saying good bye!

Bottom line is, Max's company is the best! very professional, great value and friendly staff. definitely recommended.

“So worth the $, you won't regret it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

My husband had a business trip to Rome where he wanted to see as much of the city as possible in a single day. Max did a private tour for him, and he was absolutely thrilled. Max used his knowledge of where the crowds would be and when, along with his contacts , and tour guide credentials to bypass all the lines and see MUCH more than would have been possible without his help.Private tours are expensive, but in this case, the experience was worth more than the cost. Max could have not done a better job.

“See Rome with a real pro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Max. He was extremely knowledgeable and truly knows the history of Rome. We had a group of 8 adults and one child. He was wonderful with the 6 year old in our group. He was very patient and interacted well with our group. He had an answer to all of our questions and I learned so much during this tour. This was my second trip to Rome and I wish I would have toured with him the first time. I can't wait to go back and tour with Max again!
