Honestly, I am not sure why they are not rated #1 in Rome! While this review is long overdue, (my apologies), my daughter and I had an unbelievable day with Massimo during the last week in August of last summer. First, we were a little late to meet Massimo, as we got in so late the night before and overslept. He didn't panic and got us to where we had to go (with full and wonderful explanations en route) in plenty of time. All tickets were bought by him beforehand. After our wonderful trip to the Vatican, Massimo took us to a wonderful, non-touristy place for lunch which couldn't be beat! We then toured the Colosseum and again met Massimo right outside. Then our day with Massimo began! Massimo took us throughout the entire city, stopping along all important routes, telling us the most important historical facts in a story-like manner that we will never forget. Since we were late in the morning to begin with, not only did he not rush us, but spent lots of extended time with us to make sure we saw everything and understood everything! I am convinced that he did this because he is so impassioned about what he does. We were a mother and daughter team, and he knew exactly how to capture the interests of both of us. From the comfort of his Mercedes Van, to his strong, perhaps unequaled knowledge, to his wonderful demeanor, I can't wait to revisit the city and I will hire Massimo and Best Tour of Italy as soon as I make plans again. He is simply the best!
