Marina was a fabulous guide for our time in the Colosseum and Forum area. She was waiting for us at the time and place agreed on, and she has a huge knowledge of the history of those 2 places. Also, she was lots of fun to be with, and very patient with all our questions. We continue to be impressed with the Tours by Locals guides and will for sure continue to use your organization. Thanks.

Missy CarperUnited States
4 Stars just isn't enough!! Marina was so informative and passionate about the Vatican. She was a NINJA in the crowds, and took us the easy way through for my Mother who needed a bit extra time. This was an amazing tour all because of Marina!! We cannot thank her enough for taking such great care of us!!! Book her, you won't regret it!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahahahah, Thank you very much Missy, it was a great pleasure to be your "Ninja guide" !
Our private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum with Marina was very informative and enjoyable. Marina's knowledge of the history, and her archaeological background, added greatly to our appreciation of these magnificent sites.
My family thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The luxury of being driven to each location with Marina pointing out landmarks. We were then dropped off and picked up (no waiting) at the entrance or very near each site. Saved our legs a bit and we could discuss sites in the car without distractions. Marina was very informative, definitely knows her way around to get the best vantage point and very friendly and open to questions and discussions. I would recommend this tour and Marina, as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much carolyn for you supernice review, it was.such a pleasure for me too! Hope to meet you again!

Craig LarsonUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Craig for your 5 star rating!
Marina was extremely knowledgeable about the Colluseum and Roman Forum. The ability to jump the line and have a personal guide explain the history and significance of the ancient monuments made such a difference to our experience. With our three kids it's easy for them to get bored quickly but Marina kept them captivated for the entire tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback Catherine!

Susan AdamsUnited States
Our family of 7 people thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Marina. She was astonishingly knowledgeable about art, architecture, local information and historical events and people. She was patient, fun, tireless and considerate of the two teenagers in our group. At no time did they appear bored or visit their cell phones, which is extraordinary. She kept everyone together and informed under very crowded circumstances. We found Marina to be charming, and fascinating - and heartily recommend her tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan Thank you very much for your beautiful feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed your tour. I hope to see you again in Rome! Best regards Marina

Marina was very accommodating , pleasant and knowledgable .
Brenda AmbuehlUnited States
Marina was the best way to start our vacation in Rome! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and kind enough to take our photo at every turn. She had a wonderful, private driver who navigated the city with ease and skill. The traditional Italian lunch-close to the Vatican- was amazing, and the "skip the line passes" were priceless! Thank you Marina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback Brenda!! I'm glad you enjoyed your tour! I hope too see you again here in Rome for another tour together!! Best regards Marina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard thank you so much for your positive feedback! Marina
Earl McAlearUnited States
Marina was a very pleasant person but hard to understand. Subsequently much of the information she was trying to impart was incomprehensible. Her accent is very thick and so unless you are good at picking up accents I would not recommend her. She also had us take the elevator in the Coliseum which I found strange since the whole experience centered around walking the structure. Nice person - would not recommend her for a tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Earl I'm so sorry for my bad and approximative performance. I felt sick and worn out... I hope you will desire came again to Rome to have other tours with me, organizing a free and special tour for you to be forgiven. Marina

Constance NicholsUnited States
Oh my gosh!! Marina was fabulous. The Vatican museum and Sistine chapel are so overwhelming and then you go into the Basilica of St Peter!! Marina guided us through so we had a wonderful understandable and comprehensible tour. It would be so easy to be distracted by all the beauty. She led us gently through and didn't let us miss anything that one MUST see. Absolutely amazing tour and wonderful knowledgable guide. Grazi Marina!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Constance thank you so much for your rewarding and positive feedback. Marina
Marina was knowledgeable, passionate, and best of all patient with our two young children. I was worried about trying to take our small children with us on this tour, but also did not want to miss an opportunity to see (and learn more about) Rome. Marina made sure that my kids were comfortable and was happy to accommodate us when they needed extra time or patience. My husband and I learned so much on this tour and are so grateful that we had Marina to guide us. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darbi, it was a real pleasure to guide you on your tour in Rome. You children are wonderful and I hope to see you again one day! Marina
