“Informative Forum Tour!”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

My wife and I were referred to Marisa through Amor B & B. We hired her to be our private tour guide. We arranged to meet Marisa at the Colosseo metro stop. Marisa will customize a tour in Rome to your needs; for us, she toured us through the Forum and Palatine Hill, over a 3 hour period. She speaks very good english, and provided a very informative and educational tour. She is an archaeologist by profession, and not a foreign english-speaking student trying to provide an unauthorized tour - (you may run into some of these unofficial tour guides, aggressively trying to sell tours to tourists walking from the Ottaviano metro stop towards the Vatican.) We recommend a tour with Marisa!

“Awesome, personal and educational Roman Experience with Marisa”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

We are a family of 5 (three teenagers 14, 15, 17), second time in Rome. We had booked Marisa for 2 full days (6 hours per day). Our Itinerary:
Day 1 Morning - Vatican Museum and St. Peters Basilica
Day 1 Afternoon – Classic Rome - Navona Square, Trevi, Pantheon
Day 2 Morning - Ancient Rome, Coliseum
Day 2 Afternoon - Underground Rome
Marisa made our second trip to Rome the most memorable and filled with unbiased information. Marisa is an archeologist and actually showed us areas where she has dug and discovered ancient ruins. She also works at the Vatican Museum. She is from Rome so she knows the city very well. She is sweet and genuine, smart and patient with all our questions. I found that as the time passed her skills just got better. She purchased all our tickets before hand so we never waited in long lines…She treated us to frozen espresso which I thought was very generous. Overall it was a wonderful experience; we will be hiring her next time we are in Rome.
