Marisa was the perfect guide and made our Colloseum tour an unforgettable experience. She has incredible knowledge of the history and architecture of the area and her first-hand archaeological insight was invaluable. I cannot recommend Marisa highly enough. The tour was well paced and she catered for our needs perfectly. Thank you Marisa! Annie from Australia, May 2017

Marisa was awesome. She exceeded all expectations. She was friendly, flexible, & extremely knowledgeable. She was able to expertly plan our visit to maximize our time by knowing when to be where & more importantly when not to be there. She did this with ease & grace. She made our tour of Rome an excellent enthralling experience. Even my 9 year old daughter had a hard time pretending to be bored on this tour! Marisa was wonderfully engaging with her too. My friends have already book with her for their trip. Daniel from USA, April 2017

We booked Marisa for 2 half day tours. The first day was Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. The second day was the Vatican. She was early both days and easy to find in the agreed upon location. She greeted us each day with a big smile and she was very friendly. She was so filled with information and stories about what we were seeing. She has spent many years working in the ruins of Rome as an archaeologist, so she knows these sites inside and out. We were very happy to have picked Marisa! Jennifer from USA, April 2017

We were visiting Rome with friends in November 2016, and we hired Marisa for two tours: One tour of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine hill with six people including two kids (ages 7 and 10), and a tour of Ostia Antica the following day with just my wife and me. Marisa was a fantastic guide! She is an archaeologist who has done field work in the Forum, so she speaks from first-hand experience, and her love of archaeology and Roman history really shone through on her tours. She's professional and also very personable, able to make a tour interesting for our friends' seven-year-old daughter, and at the same time for me, an adult who has read several books on Roman history. Marisa was very responsive and easy to work with while setting up our tour. She rescheduled our Ostia Antica tour on just a few days' notice due to a Metro strike, and got us "skip-the-line" tickets for the Colosseum after a last-minute request from us. We highly recommend doing a tour with Marisa! Friendly tip: Don't miss Ostia Antica! It was really fascinating, like Pompeii (which we visited several years ago) without the crowds. After our tour, Marisa recommended a wonderful trattoria inside the castle across the street from the ruins - delicious and a lot of fun! (Brian J., USA, November 2016)

Marisa was a great guide, her knowledge was second to none, she was clear and always had an answer. She was always conscious of where her party was and the speed that suited them. I would definitely recommend her to others. (Nicholas B. U.K. November 2016)
