We were lucky to have arranged a tour with Marta Marsili last week. Marta took us through and under San Clemente Basilica and St. Peter in Chains among other sites. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our few hours with her and wish we had had another day to spend with her. Great guide!

My wife and I did a 4 hour tour of Ancient Rome and the Colosseum with Marta. She was articulate, well informed, and thorough. It was fun having a guide capable of answering questions about the economics, architecture and politics of the day. We would enjoy using her again and would highly recommend her.

From the moment we first contacted Marta she was responsive and offered excellent suggestions for seeing Rome even beyond her tour. We saw and learned more when touring with her than almost any other guide we've ever toured with. Her knowledge was precise and thorough, conveyed in an enjoyable way. Her ability to navigate the sites and the crowds and other tours was remarkable. Her love for the sites and Rome is clearly evident. She covered art, architecture, culture and history seamlessly, adding context to the entire tour. At the end of our tour she made several recommendations to visit other sites that enhanced our visit to Rome. We plan to return to Rome and plan to tour again with Marta. She is simply extraordinary, personable and passionate. We recommend her without reservation.

We were two couples traveling from Seattle to Rome for the first time. We were given Marta's name/company by Rick Steve's Tour Company. We spent four days in Rome and booked three four-hour sessions (12 total hours) with Marta. Based on her suggestions, the three days of touring turned out to be PERFECT! The four hour time slots were just the right amount of time. Our first day we toured ruins and key parts of Rome in a walking tour/introduction with Marta. The second day was spent at the Vatican/St. Peter's Church/Museum. The third day was the Roman Colosseum, Forum and Senate areas. Time flew by with Marta. She knew every alley and courtyard along the way that brought a much more intimate feel to our touring. Her knowledge of art history and the rise/fall of the Roman empire was impressive. She carried some wonderful before and after pictures and maps of areas that enabled us to gain a much better appreciation for what things were first like in Rome. Marta also brought a refreshing personality with a combination of intellect and humor ... by the end, it seemed as if she were a friend we hadn't seen is some time! We can't say enough about what a value we felt we gained by having Marta as a private guide. And, all things considered, we did not spend any more money with Marta that the 4 of us would have individually with a tour company ... and our group would have been 4-5 times the size and not nearly as personal/customized. On a scale of 1 to 10, we all gave Marta an 11! We have commented so many times when asked about touring Rome and what we liked the most and our reply is always the same ... our time with Marta. If you travel across the world to finally see something as splendid as Rome, then see it in it's best light ... through the help/guidance of a pro like Marta. Thank you Marta! We miss you! You made our stay in Rome so memorable!

Massimo gave us a private four hour tour of Central Rome and it was wonderful! He listened to what we were interested in and tailored the tour accordingly. We saw beautiful places, got amazing pictures, and learned about Rome from a Roman. Best money spent on our trip.
