Both tours were fantastic. Nice small groups, one tour only had 7 people. Most other tours in Rome seem like a small army whilst this tour felt more personal. It was easy to ask the guide questions about the places and they knew the answers. Will use this group again when I take my uncle. Thanks for the hard work... More

Our private tour with Andrea was amazing. He struck just the right balance between sharing the story and history of Pompeii and covering as much ground as possible in our 2.5 hour tour. Our 11 year old called it "awesome"!

Kristiana was a fantastic guide! She has been giving tours for over 15 years and had so many interesting facts and insights that made our tour so much more memorable! The Vatican museums would have been very overwhelming without her guidance. I felt the Vatican was hands down the highlight of our trip, and I am so glad we invested... More

After seeing huge tour groups walking around Rome with headphones looking bored, it took a bit of convincing the to get my family to do a tour. The Colosseum tour we did with Maximus was fantastic. Dani is very knowledgeable on art history and architecture,and her explanations and stories were super interesting. Our group was small (8 people) and we... More

If you are planning your trip to Rome you must book your private tour with Maximus tours, they are great, we booked the Colosseum and the Vatican. We asked to have our tour in Portuguese and they did a awesome job. Isabella was our guide at the Vatican the line was huge but we were able to skip the line... More

Had an excellent tour with Kristiana from Maximus. We saw lots of people lining up and we literally skipped the line so worth spending the extra money. Maximus also had the best online deal I could find. The tour went through all the relevant parts and Kristina was a great guide. Thoroughly recommend.

We were recommended Maximus by friends and we did Colloseum and Forum and then Vatican tours, the two guides, Dani and Tatiana were brilliant. Their level of knowledge and expertise was fantastic and their enthusiasm made the tours much more enjoyable. Great value for money and when we go back will use again. Brilliant place and excellent tours. Highly recommend

I took Colosseum and vatican tours with Maximus. The meeting point for the Colosseum tour was very hard to find. There are many statues around the meeting point and it is hard to locate what they mean. Also the tour guide did not clearly show her blue notebook as they say. But the tour itself was good and informative. I... More

We did a lot of research before we booked maximus tours and are so glad we chose them. Booked three trips with them, The colosseum, vatican and la dolce vita tours.Really enjoyed them all. You gets lots of information when you book regarding meeting points and entrance fees. The fast track to the vatican is well worth booking as we... More

The Vatican tour with Maximus was amazing. The online booking was easy and quick. Our guide Cristiana was friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. She kept our tour lively and fun. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome. I will be back, and I will book with Maximus tours again. Thank you so much. Greg MacDonald
