Tour: Rome full day - Shore Excursion, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Oct 13/18

I cannot say enough about Mauro, who with the help of his partner Caron made the arrangements for Rome. While we did not have the tickets to get into the Colosseum Mauro made the necessary phone calls and problems were solved. We were a bit concerned at first but once Mauro started talking about the history of Rome and the Colosseum we quickly found out how knowledgeable and how passionate he was about his city. The different places he took us too were all well explained in an easy to understand English.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you kindly Hans, I so enjoyed meeting all of you and look forward to your return to Italy to see much more of my beautiful land. Grazie tanto

The tour by golf buggy was as expected and more. Mauro was a really personable and knowledgeable guide - he tailored the tour to our requests as we have visited Rome before but not in such detail and took great care to ensure we were all enjoying the experience and was particularly considerate of the limited walking ability of our 90 years young mother Highly recommend this tour and Mauro in particular

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sandra for your wonderful review- I so enjoyed meeting you and your mother is a princess who is priceless. Please come back soon! Grazie Tanto, your friend in Rome Mauro

Mauro suggested an earlier start to beat the crowds and it was a great suggestion. We toured Sant'Angelo Castel without any lineups. We thoroughly enjoyed the Castel, the bridge, the Pantheon, the Spanish steps and of course tossing a coin into Trevi fountaine. We will definitely return to Rome and meet up with Mauro to tour us to other parts of Rome. A very memorable and educational tour. It was amazing...

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for a great review of our day together. I so enjoyed showing both of you all of the important and fun spots in Roma. Looking forward to meeting up again for more adventures throughout Italy. Grazie

Mauro was simply perfect! We are a couple from Montreal in their mid 40s. No kids. We booked online in advance and we have no regret whatsoever. We definitely recommend this experience with Mauro to anyone who is looking to fully appreciate Ancient Rome's wonders. We are well traveled and this has to be one of the nicest travel experiences we had the chance to live. Mauro is knowledgeable sympathetic and also, his love for Rome and Italy's history is evident and contagious.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eric and Chantal. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I enjoy every second we had together and your interest in Rome history was incredible. I loved to share with you all I know about Ancient Rome. Enjoy the rest of your vacation and please if you need contact me in the future. Grazie mille, Mauro.

I can't even begin to say how happy we were with Mauro! It is so hard to cover Rome in a day as a ship excurison but he did this and even made time to shop which was on our list and the perfect picture spots! We all enjoyed our time with him and he made us feel like we had known him forever. We will HIGHLY recommend him to all our travel friends, I could not have hand picked anyone any better. We will be back to cover the spots we missed and call on you when we come!! Thanks for a perfect day Mauro

Mauro is fun, personable and full of knowledge! He stepped in & saved the day when one of his colleagues had an unfortunate accident & couldn't meet us for our tour. We appreciate how Caron, Mauro & the Tours by Locals group stepped in & made sure we were taken care of. We are also thankful the other guide is on the mend. We highly recommend taking the Rome tour by night where you can see so many spectacular sites, beautiful sunsets and enjoy a quick trip around the city! Mauro was fantastic!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Lisa, thank you so much for your understanding! It was a very unfortunate situation for the other guide, who is on the mend. Both Caron and I enjoyed jumping in to help out and glad that we could continue your Rome by night and show you all we could. Caron is called the fixer in Rome- she was happy to step in and assist. Grazie tanto for your understanding and allowing the great moments to move forward. We would be delighted if you kept in touch and had an opportunity to show you more. Your friend Mauro

Wow! Another great guide from Tours By Locals. Mauro is fantastic. He picked up our party of 7 from Arizona at our hotel, got us to the train station with enough time to get breakfast and then we took the train to Venice. Once in Venice, we went to the glass factory where our part yy of 7 had a private tour and the kids all got to blow glass and watch the artisans work. We then toured Venice and had late lunch. He took great care of us and he knows Venice as only an insider would

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you soo much for your wonderful review. I am very pleased you and your group had a good time and enjoyed my tour. It was a pleasure getting to know you all.

Mauro was fantastic!! From the outset he communicated to ask what we wanted. He even adjusted our start time because we needed to get back earlier. To extend our time even longer he suggested we take the fast train, offering to drive back the 3 1/2 hrs alone. Mauro was engaging and funny and knowledgeable. My friend was not feeling well but didn't want to miss our trip. Mauro "on the fly" made adjustments that kept me entertained and my friends needs in mind. Mauro is the best!!

Mauro was the ultimate guide from start to finish. His English was perfect. He had a fun and interesting personality that engaged our family for eight hours! His knowledge of Italy's history, culture , food and wine was amazing. (He was previously a restaurant manager and is great cook and sommelier). We highly recommend his tour of Orvieto and Civita di Bagnoregio. He was also great at finding best photos spots for us. We felt cared for in all aspects and will book him again when in Italy. Grazie mille!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about our day together,it was a pleasure for me to meet your family. I really enjoyed sharing everything with all of you and look forward to your return to Italy soon!!! Grazie Millie and Happy New Year.

Mauro is a very warm and friendly guide who customised my tour as I was more interested in finding my way around Rome than shopping. I was though interested in where to get the best gelato and restaurants where Italians go to. As an older woman travelling alone it is important to me to feel safe and confident and I certainly became so after a few hours spent out and about with Mauro who is an experienced guide and very easy to talk with. I feel fortunate to have chosen Mauro S to be my guide in Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sophie, it was my pleasure to know you and show you Rome.

We had an excellent experience with Mauro. He drove us from our hotel in Rome to our Hotel in Civitavecchia. He was early to pick us up, which was nice. He was a very good driver, very personable and friendly. He had a conversation with us the entire trip. He brought us right to the door of the hotel helping with our luggage. Next time we are in Rome we would request to have Mauro when we needed a ride.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Norman! Looking forward to your return. It was my pleasure to know you.

He has a zest for life, endless patience, accommodates personal interests incl. our 17yr old son whilst sharing his beautiful Italy. Awesome Tuscan wine tasting @ San Gimignano, & a sophisticated dinner in Rome with his knowledgeable wife Caron who has a great sense of humour! Both are extremely attentive, warm, fun, friendly, informative personalities & REALLY go the extra mile to ensure you build special memories. Highly recommended!

Mauro is a great guide. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. He set up a great lunch and wine tasting for us on the slopes of Mt Vesuvio and a guide in Pompeii. He drove us from Rome to Sorrento with comments on history the whole way. When we got to Sorrento he took us to the hotel to drop our bags and then showed us around Sorrento. He has a very nice Mercedes which was the perfect way to travel. Next time in Italy we will use him again.

Mauro's knowledge, experience, and most of all his ability to quickly get to know us in a way that allowed him to customize the tour to best meet and exceed our expectations, and just the right amount of information on himself to get us quickly comfortable with him and the environment, resulted in an exceptional experience with memories that will last a lifetime! We would recommend this tour, especially with Mauro as the guide, to all.

He quickly figured out our individual interests, took us to fabulous places in Rome that we did not know existed, and truly made the day completely enjoyable for all of us.

Jam packed with events, very knowledgeable tour guide in Vatican. Mauro was not our tour guide. He had some others tour us and we were grouped with another family which was unexpected. We thought the tour would be for just our family. Our driver was awesome and professional. We did so much for the few hours we were in Rome, it was awesome in that respect.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie for your kind comments, your driver is my partner and we were all together that day. It was nice meeting you and your family.

Navigating the streets of Rome would not have been as enjoyable- or safe!- without our charming guide Mauro and his lovely wife, Carron. Both very warm and extremely attentive, they were an excellent team. Carron, an American, speaks impeccable Italian and herded us safely thru crowds with the moxie of an Italian mama. Mauro, the authority on food and theology, chose the perfect off-the-beaten-path restaurants and shared an impassioned translation of the Pope's sermon. Our heartfelt thanks to both!

Excellent. Meeting point (Cafe Vaticano)was perfect, Mauro was on time & introduced us to a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic Vatican guide. Plan A was to tour on Bikes, but rain meant a seamless switch to plan B by vehicle, which appeared immediately. Lunch, a very important element of the day, was very good authentic Italian cuisine as requested. Very helpful with other restaurant suggestions and sites to see which we had not covered in the itinerary. A most enjoyable and organised day.
