Tour: #522034, Heart of Rome Private Tour - for Kim Meyer, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Oct 7/18

We did this tour with our sons, 14 and 10. 3 hours can be a long time for that age, but Marta did a great job keeping us all engaged and interested! She covered a lot of territory on a organized route and we were able to take some great photos. Her English was great! Bonus was she also recommended some fabulous spots to eat. One place we went to twice as it was so good. Highly recommend Marta and we look forward to visiting Rome again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Kim for your lovely words!!! You have a great family and I had such a nice time touring with you. I really hope to welcome you to Rome next time! Ciao Marta

Tour: Capitoline Museums - for Gerald McCollam, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Sep 14/18

Our tour with Marta P. of the Capitoline Museum was a stunning experience. Marta's expert knowledge of art history and her passion for the subject made each work of art come alive in new and unexpected ways. She is a remarkable guide! The Capitoline's vast collection can overwhelm but with Marta's expertise and enthusiasm the many statues, inscriptions, paintings and mosaics of the Museum united to create an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. There are not enough words here to express!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a real pleasure to tour you around! Hoping to see you soon, Marta

Tour: #430537, Vatican Hidden Gems - Early Morning Priority Access - For Jennifer Mumford, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 11/18

Our customized tour of the Vatican Museum with Marta was fantastic! She took care of all the logistical details so the tour ran smoothly. We had early access which meant we were often the first or only people in many of the galleries. Marta provided context for significant works and brought the ancient world to life for us. We highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Jennifer!!! I'm really happy you had a nice time exploring with me the Vatican Museums. hope to see you soon :)

Tour: #430539, Discovering Caravaggio - A Private Tour in Rome, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 10/18

If I could give Marta six stars I would. Her knowledge of Renaissance and medieval art is incredible, her passion for the subject infectious. She showed us where Caravaggio lived and painted, explaining the context of his early years. At San Luigi dei Francesi we saw the St Matthew cycle, at Santa Maria del Popolo the paintings of St Paul and St Peter, then on to Sant'Agostino. Along the way Marta showed us many things. She's smart, funny, and a wonderful guide. Believe me, you will love this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Gerarld and good luck with your book! Hope to see you again

Marta was a great tour guide. She is so friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the Ancient Rome and the Colosseum. She was able to hold my kids interest, ages 10 and 12, on a very hot day. My son especially loved the history of the Colosseum she had to share. I would recommend her to anyone looking to tour Rome.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno! Thank you for touring with me and leaving me a review. Really glad to hear that you loved the tour! I would love to see you again, come back soon! A presto! Marta
