We spent a great day with Max touring Rome. We hit all of the must see sights but never felt rushed or hurried. Max had all of the head of the line tickets which saved a great deal of time at places like the Vatican and Colliseum. I would certainly use Max again and would recommend him to anyone who wants an outstanding tour of Rome.

Massimiliano was a FANTASTIC tour guide! Very knowledgeable, personable, organized, and flexible. We were able to see SO much in a day.... truly an extraordinary experience. Even got in a great lunch along the way... couldn't have been better!

Excellent tour Victor was great,perfect English as he lived in the USA for a time,looks after the kids by talking to them directly,everyone feels part of the tour and plenty of time and patience with the kids wanted to do the usual gift shops.Did all the major sites,as well as local sites not in the guide books ,great lunch and ice cream,not in the local tourist traps.Major point of this tour is the golf cart go where the cars can't in the small side streets if you have limited space take a cart not limo.
Mitchell NudelmanNewcastle, WA, United States
Max was the highlight of our trip. We saw everything in Rome that we wanted. Max engaged the whole family and catered his talk to each of us. When he found out we were Jewish he altered the tour on the fly to make it even more special. I had told him it was my wife's birthday and he arranged for a birthday cake at lunch. So special! We felt like he was part of the family from the time we met him. We would book Max again just to spend time with him! Also don't miss Julia and Maria for lunch by the Vatican.

We would highly recommend the Rome tour with Massimiliano to other travelers! We had a lot to see in our one day in Rome, and Massimiliano made sure we saw everything on our list. The use of the golf cart was great and much easier to get around quickly. Thanks, Massimiliano for a wonderful, unforgettable day!
Megan McCainUnited States
Massimiliano was great - so knowledgeable and enthusiastic! We didn't have any idea how we were going to see everything, but Max kept us in line and on time and we were really able to see Rome in a day! Max was great with our kids too!

Max provided us with a great driver at the cruise port who brought us into Rome where we met Max and his golf cart. We had people in our party with walking difficulties, but the golf cart allowed us to have a walking tour of The Eternal City without doing the walking. Max was a great tour guide. He gave us a very thorough tour of the Museums,Sistine Chapel,St. Peter's, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and many other areas. He told us historical facts and had many interesting stories. Highly Recommend Max!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jeffrey, I still have great memories of our tour, hope you and your family will be back soon. Ciao Max

We loved Rome.

Our second tour of. Rome with Max and as before a great tour. Max found sites we had not previously seen and new information on those sites. Spending as much time as we liked at a site was great.
We only had one day in port on our cruise to see all of Rome and with Max in charge we managed to see just about everything......we could never have seen half of what we did without him and his driver, Mauritzio. Max's historical knowledge was second to none and the little restaurant we went to for lunch was just lovely. All in all it was the perfect day and well worth every cent....Thanks Max for making our time in Rome so special. Anne and Geoff Brown

Our visit to Rome began with Max greeting us at the pier in Civitavecchia and giving us an overview of Rome. As a native Roman, his personal and professional experience of the Eternal City, infused with his academic work in history and archeology and his command of English, made for a successful orientation to the city. Thus, we were able to browse the city on our own very comfortably during the remaining days of our visit. Also, Max's considerate ways and flexibility added to our true enjoyment.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Margaret, i thank you for the magic moments spent together Ciao Max Leotta
WOW What a fantastic day we had with Max. He made all the sites come alive with his brilliant explanations and intriguing facts. Having a driver on hand also minimized the walking and gave us more time at each place. Thanks Max. You were brilliant
William HarperUnited States
Max is the best. Whether it was accommodating my family's need to eat every 2 hours or detouring around a black cat, nothing seemed to phase Max as he deftly brought the sights, sounds, and tastes of Rome to life for us. We have done several small group tours before, but this was so much better. Thanks again for a fantastic experience!

This 7th tour of our vacation didn't feel personalized in comparison. Max certainly knows his history but our first experience in Rome/Vatican was him opening a book and spilling out his knowledge on religious history - a real turn off for our 13 year old. He selected business-type luncheon restaurant and included himself (though we enjoyed his company)without choice. A shame that the last stop - Gelato was my daughters favorite Roman experience. Felt like a private tour with his predetermined agenda
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear ms. Ward i am really sorry you feel that way about our day together, as a man i completely missed the ball, but this bad comment will permit me to grow as a man. I thank you

Max, you are an awesome tour guide. We had 9 people in our group, 5 of which were kids. We booked Max to visit the Vatican and a general tour around Rome. Max was on-time, knew his way around everything and answered all of our questions. We was fabulous with the kids, relating information to them in a way they could understand and make the tour fun. We had a great lunch at the local spot and the kids loved the gelato shop with 150 favors. We will never forget our trip. Thanks Max!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Debra just one simple word; WHAT A NICE AND WONDERFUL FAMILY YOU ARE; I thank you for the time spent togheter. Say CIAO to the kids.
John C.The Villages, FLORIDA, United States
Max is the quintessential Roman guide...alors, nothing could have gone better during our tour with him. Our penchant for frequent espresso and food breaks did nothing to dampen his charming and expert elucidation. He is a most knowledgeable host; a perfect representative of Roma. Bravo Max! Jack Criscione
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John, next time we will have beer togheter; wait for you.... Ciao Max leotta
Carlos SolanoUnited States
Max was awesome!!! Really enjoyed our day with him at the Vatican and St-Peter's Basilica. He also customize our tour since our group of 3 had been in Rome before. He showed us different parts of the city and local flavors esp..the Cafe et caffe and pastries!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Captain, our tour was like flying on a 777, ALL PERFECT; prepare to land...... Ciao Max Leotta
Steven GustavesonSalt Lake City, UT, United States
Massimiliano (Max)is a very good guide. He can get you from the port to the middle of Rome quickly in a very nice vehicle and his ability to find parking and park in very small places astonished me. He can get you in The Coliseum or The Forum quickly without waiting in line and take you to any of the other sites you may want to see when you only have a short stay. We saw alot in one day. Thank You, Max. Yours Truly, Steve Gustaveson

We had only one day to spend in Rome and the best thing we did was to hire Max. We made a plan together, and he took to all the sights we wanted to see. He knows all the best spots for photos, kept the family happy and interested, and had some great surprises along the way. He is incredibly knowledgeable and gave us the option of in depth or brief explanations, so our tour was customize to our interests. He is funny, friendly and professional. His driver was great as well.
Randi RibarichUnited States
Max, Just wanted to let you know how happy we were that you were our guide. I learned a lot of interesting things about Rome that I never knew before. You were awesome! Randi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Randi, it was a pleasure for me; time flies when you are with good friends
Dora SannasardoUnited States
Massimillano was great and so professional he picked us up at the airport on time and took us sight seeing until it was time to board our ship. After our cruise was over picked us up and drove us to Rome. Thank you so much Massimiliano you made our trip worry free. We hope to visit rome again real soon and you will be my first contact. Ciao

This tour was absolutely the highlight of our trip!! Max was fantastic, so knowledgeable and friendly. We had a very full day of places we wanted to see and he fit everything into our day plus adding a wonderful place to eat lunch. The pasta was the best we have ever had!! I will recommend Max to everyone...We all want to come back to Rome!!! THANK YOU MAX!!!
Eric GinsbergUnited States
Max was absolutely fantastic. He was so knowledgeable, personable, friendly, and fun. Taking this full-day tour with him was an absolute highlight to our trip. We would recommend Max to EVERYONE and don't think twice about it. Surely the next time we are back in the Rome area, we will 1000% use him again. Thank you Max again for making our day in Rome so wonderful and exceeding all of our expectations.
David L.Norcross, GA, United States
This tour is exhausting, but that's a consequence of the many, many sites in Rome and the tight time frame allowed while a cruise ship is in port. Max kept us moving and entertained, and was always alert to opportunities to take photographs of our group. A great day in one of the world's great cities, with a wonderful guide.
Mary B.United States
I booked this tour with Massimiliano (Max) for my parents who were on a cruise. Both are elderly, with my dad particularly having mobility issues. That said, I couldn't have asked for more than the tour provided by Max. He was kind, informative, helpful, prompt, and all attributes of what a guide should be. I highly recommend both Max and Tours by Locals.
Lewis GutersonUnited States
the tour, made extra nice by Max, was better than good. I can't say more...Max is personable, knowledgeable and engaging. He made everything so easy. He knows the territory, the history, the dates. Besides, I was mixed up on the time we were to get off the boat to met him; he was held up waiting and he handled it without making me feel like the dummy I can be. We would seek Max, and recommend Max, for future trips. Max enhances the luster of your agency. PLEASE pass these comments along to Max. Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks lewis, it ws a pleasure to spend a day with you and your family Ciao Max
Kimberly CunninghamUnited States
Max is very knowledable of the history of Rome. My husband who has a History Major and focused on Early Civilization put him to the test and he passed! The whole family learned and enjoyed the tour. Max is very professional and an expert on the culture and all the sites Rome has to offer.
