Wonderful guide. Spent the day with her on Saturday as well with the Batican Tour and the Collosium.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Camelia, it has been a pleasure to meet your group and spent together two days. Thanks for your patience and willpower (it's not easy touring Rome and its ruins! many steps!) Marisa
A delightful charming and informative guide, would not hesitate recommending Marissa to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you so much! I love touring in archaeological sites, especially with people as you, interested and nice. Come back soon in Rome! grazie, Marisa
fantastic walking tour and our guide Marisa was extremely informative and very pleasant company for the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Angela, we really walked a lot...but it was really a lovely day! Especially because we have visited my favourite underground sites of Rome. It's nice to do off the beaten path itineraries :)

Mina CohenUnited States
Marisa was an outstanding guide and we were especially impressed that when we got stuck in a bottleneck with some rather large tour groups she knew how to keep our attention and keep the tour going with information while we waited. We would recommend her highly for this interesting and unusual tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Mina for your review! The Underground Rome is becoming famous ;) But usually you have few tourists as you saw in the second site! I'm glad you liked this tour! Thanks Marisa
Marisa’s tours are excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed her company as we learned about Rome and Italian life through her perspective. She’s friendly and easy to talk to, and she is extremely knowledgeable. For a city with so much history and detail to take in, Marisa and her tours were an essential experience. We loved all her recommendations, from gelato and expresso to shopping and restaurants. It was a memorable trip and we highly, highly recommend her!

Marisa was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the underground tour a lot. Money well spent. If you want to be just more than a tourist this is a tour for you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks Elif! :) I hope everything OK despite of the cold weather in those days! I'm so glad you enjoyed this unusual tour, Underground Rome is one of my favourite...one of the few places in Rome without groups.

How very lucky we were to find Marisa on two of our private tours in Rome. Having her, an archeologist, was the best possible choice for these tours. Not only was she sweet and personable, she had knowledge that went beyond just learning. I am certain she would have been as excellent with any of the tours she provides, but for these, I just don't know how she could be beat. Thank you so much Marisa. And I'm glad I found Tours By Locals as they were reliable and efficient.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Betty for your review! You were so smiling and interested that was a pleasure to share my knowledge with you. And I think that this the best review I ever received.. Even if Archaeological Tours are my specialty, probably I did my best even because you were so interested. Thanks again Marisa

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Celest, I was very happy to meet you and your friends. Thank you even for having choose the Underground Tour, is something very special and unusual. Marisa
We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Marisa, she had an outstanding knowledge of Roman history and provided us with plenty of history and background during our visit to the catacombs and St Clemente church. Marisa is a lovely woman and it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. We would recommend Marisa as a guide to our friends. Money well spent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mark!! I remember with pleasure the day we spent together on the Appian Way. I would love to meet another group of smiling travellers like you and your friends! And remember the funny man at catacombs..catacumbaaaas ;)
