This tour went off without a hitch. It was so wonderful. Our driver, Giardano was so helpful and really knew his way around the city. He always kept us feeling safe. He was also very knowledgeable. Nadia was amazing! She was able to answer all the weird questions I had and really kept the tour interesting and informative. We could not believe that we were able to do so much in such a small amount of time. If you have the opportunity to do a private tour, certainly pick this one. It is truly a memorable experience.

Truly a memorable experience. Max took us for a Roman adventure thru the Sistine chapel, catacombs, circus Maximus, Colosseum and more. Our plane was late and luggage pick up dreadfully slow but Max made the most of our time together with in our prepaid ticket restrictions and truly made our day work for 3 couples. He provided more information in 7 hours that you would get in a semester of Roman classical college course! His knowledge of history, art and culture along with the ability to flex the itinerary to “Max”imize our time together was the best. Shawn was correct … so worth it!!

Finally, after 3 years of postponing this trip, we were able to visit Rome and Florence. Amazing and well worth the money.. you skip all lines and have the luxury of being driven to each location. Marco our guide and driver was knowledgeable and friendly and made us feel so welcome in their beautiful and historical home of Rome.. a must do if you want to see a bit of everything. ♥️♥️♥️ Rome

Wow! I can't recommend Max and his seven-hour, skip-the-line tour highly enough. He showed us the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel and other parts of the Vatican, the Catacombs, Appian Way and more all in a day. His energy and enthusiasm are infectious and he's a tremendous tour guide for both children and adults.

Spending a day with Max Parini with Italy Rome Tour allowed us to see and appreciate far more than we ever could have on our own. Max has studied art history in Boston and has excellent English and communication skills, in addition to his extensive knowledge of and obvious passion for history and architecture. We felt like VIPs in his company, bypassing the long lines at the Vatican and Colosseum. Just as important, he helped us better understand what we were seeing. This was the "splurge" of our 10-day trip to Italy and worth every penny.

This tour was well worth the money. Max picked us up at our hotel promptly before 8. We started at the Colosseum. Not only is it skip-the-line, we had access to skip the other groups tours that claim to be skip-the-line; we were the very first people of the day to enter. Max was very knowledgeable and engaging. He kept me and my children, ages 19 and 23, interested with his enthusiasm and knowledge of Rome. We continued to the Vatican, where again we were able to go directly to the front of the 3-4 hour line to enter the museum and Sistine Chapel. I cannot say enough about this tour. Spend the extra few dollars, it's worth every bit! We will return to Rome again and plan on looking up Max to visit some of the sites we didn't have time for in our 2-day visit. He is the best guide I ever had anywhere I have traveled. I would give this tour 10 stars if I could.

Family of 3 (1 adult, 1 older child and 1 younger child). We were picked up from our hotel at 8am and enjoyed a full day of basically everything! I will probably forget something but we saw Vatican City, Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine chapel, went to top of Basilica tower, saw the pyramid and cemetery, the Appian Way, Saint Sebastian catacombs, keyhole view of Vatican, circus Maximus, Roman forum, palatine hill, the coliseum (ground level inside)...I think there was more. We drove in a nice vehicle, we parked close at every attraction. Max was so knowledgeable and kind. We walked past hours-long lines of people, straight into each place with zero wait. We had an amazing, first class lunch. Max has been doing this for 19 years. He seems to know everyone. Super nice and funny. We really enjoyed every aspect. Tour cost is expensive (over $700 USD) but in my opinion it was worth every penny - We would have never done all those things if we had to wait in lines. We would not have known where to go or what do do. And we would have never learned so much interesting history on our own. It was such an amazing day. Extra costs on tour: tickets for climbing basilica tower, catacombs tickets, lunch - I think that was it. Probably spent an extra $100 USD on top of tour price. We were dropped off right back in front of our hotel around 5pm. Max is the best guide, this was the tour of a lifetime! Thank you, Max!

We travelled as a group of 6 to see the Italy v Wales rugby international in February 2019. We had a full 'sightseeing' day on the Friday before the game and I booked this tour with Max (the owner) before leaving Wales. In my initial correspondence Max was very helpful and answered all questions I had promptly. We took the option of the company luxury minivan ( a much cheaper option than us finding taxis or using trams between attractions). We also requested Max as our guide for the day and fortunately he was available. On the day of the tour Max was promptly at our hotel pick up and we went straight to Vatican city to the museums and St. Peter's...skipping the queues was adventageous as even in February the queues at 9.30am were around 2 hours long. Max has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the attractions and quite a sense of humour and he gave us a lot of information at all stages of the tour. We then went on to the Circus Maximus and then the Colosseum, where again we saved lots of time by not only skipping the queues but also using less known entrance which gave access to lowest public level of Colosseum. Max then drove us along Appian way to Catacombs where another local guide gave us an informative tour ( individual payment of 8 euro was needed here). In summary it was like being shown around the city by a well informed 'best friend', there was no language problem at all. WHEN we return to Rome we will use Max again to see other aspects of the city. This tour allows you to see all the 'must do' things but leaves you plenty to do on other visits...Max puts no pressure on you time wise and the 7 hour tour took more like 9. You may think that the tour is expensive when first look at it BUT work out all the ticket costs, taxi fares and the cost of guides....we thought it was EXCELLENT value. All six of our group were more than pleased with tour...which I was grateful of as the organiser....and it was down to Max and his very experienced company. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Our guide and driver were tons of fun and their knowledge of the city and Vatican was amazing. It was a perfect way to see Rome, gain an understanding of the culture and history. Would absolutely do this again.

Having one full day in Rome at the end of our Italy trip, I was pleasantly surprised at how much we were able to see with Max. He picked us up from our Airbnb with high energy and kept such enthusiasm throughout the day. We were able to skip all lines to major attractions and learn about the most interesting aspects of each site from his point of view! I visited Rome about a year ago and would put this tour far above my previous trip. We experienced an authentic Italian meal where we never would have found otherwise. Highly recommend!
