If you are interested in the amazing Bernini and his outstanding architectural achievements I highly recommend this tour.

Marta was one of our best discoveries in Rome! Her friendly manner, intricate knowledge of the sites that we visited and desire to make our tour the very best possible, all added up to a fantastic experience. We had tours with Marta 2 days in a row and couldn't have been happier with our experience. Marta quickly discerned what interested us most and was quick to point out the sites and details that meant the most to us. Marta is a jewel!

We spent two days with Marta touring Rome and had a great time with her. She was prompt, guided well and was very knowledgable. She was attentive to the amount of walking we were able to do, the breaks we needed and getting us through and around crowds. We thoroughly enjoyed her and felt that we learned so much!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review! I had such a great time with you... Thanks for being so patient and attentive...I know that touring in Rome sometimes can be tough...but we made it and we enjoyed every minute together! Hope to see you again :)

Going on a tour of the Vatican has been a dream of mine. Marta was the most wonderful guide. It was a crowded day at the Vatican, which I believe every day is but she knew exactly how to move us around quickly while making sure we saw all the "wonders". She explained everything so well, and took time to answer all our questions. She knew how important this place was to us, and made our tour very special. She is a gifted guide, and it was a pleasure to have met her. I highly recommend Marta.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A big hug!!!! Grazie for your 5 stars review :)

WE LOVED MARTA! This was our first time to Rome and we were so excited to see the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill. It was so nice to pass all the people in line and get right into the Colosseum. Marta was so knowledgeable explaining these amazing sites to us. She told us such great information and kept up with us asking her a million questions. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jennifer...what a wonderful review :) I'm so happy to read your words, it means a lot to me...GRAZIE!!!

Marta was fantastic. She is knowledgeable and highly educated, customer focused, well organised and a delightful person. We had a wonderful time with her at the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica. We learnt so much from her and the experience was so much richer as a result of having Marta as a guide. We would happily work with Marta again in the future.

Touring with Marta was a special experience. She made the Vatican come alive with her historical information and enthusiasm. She became an immediate friend to my husband and I. Marta made sure we were safe and well hydrated; she was patient, understanding, and considerate of our questions and wants. We wish she could be our guide for all our tours in Italy. We hope we have someone as knowlegable and kind for the other tours we have scheduled. Highly recommend Marta as a guide for everyone's visit to Rome

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie mille Theresa, it was my pleasure to share my Eternal city with you...I really wish to meet you again! All my very best wishes and kind regards. Your friend in Rome, Marta

Our guide Marta was great. She met us at our hotel and stayed with us until we decided to see the Trevi Fountain. She arrianged for the driver to takes us to the site. No extra charge. Her knowledge of the wonderful sights of Rome was excellent. Very nice information and she was well versed in historical facts. There was lots of walking and climbing of stairs but that is to be understood. Well good walking shoes. Take water! Marta is highly recommended. Thank you so much for all. We enjoyed you

The tour we did with Marta was not cheap. But what we got in the over-five hours we spent with her made it well worth the money. Marta's knowledge is expert, and she didn't show signs of fatigue at any point over the tour. The best element was the ability to get into the Vatican museums ahead of the large tour groups, and then to be able to go behind the ropes to see some great stuff just by ourselves. The tour overall gave us a good grasp of the history and splendours of the Vatican. Recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: CiaoMark, I'm really happy for your review. Grazie mille! I had a great time and what I love of my job is getting to know and touring with such nice people like you. Hoping to welcoming you in Rome next time! Marta

Marta was an amazing guide for our Vatican Museums tour. We had a group of five on the busiest day of the year (Easter Saturday) and she did a great job of mitigating the crowds and leading us through the museums. She was prompt to pick us us at our rental, was very knowledgable and passionate about the art, and communicated very effectively both prior to and on the tour. We highly recommend her and this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie, grazie, grazie!!! I'm happy you had a nice time, and despite the crowds, we enjoyed our day together, from the beginning to the end. I really hope to meet you again!

Marta was very friendly and met our family directly at our hotel on time. After arriving at the Colosseum Marta was able to navigate through the crowds to skip all the lines. She is very knowledgeable (art history background) and her stories were captivating. After the Colosseum we climbed up the Palatine Hill and walked through the Roman Forum. Again Marta was able to describe life for the ancient Romans and help us visualize what it must have felt to be part of this time. We had a fantastic tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Parul, Grazie for your kind review! Me, I had a fantastic time with you...You and your family are amazing and it has been a pleasure to stroll with you through the ancient ruins, sharing my passion for Roma and its history. Hoping to welcoming you in the Eternal City next time!

Marta was extremely knowledgable in Roman history, architecture and art history. She gave us great information, we saw alot in 7 hrs and she was able to get us into a few extra places in the Vatican! We learned so much even though I had been in Rome before. She brought along a book that had overlays of the ancient ruins with the way those ruins looked in Ancient times. It really added to being able to visualize what we were seeing. We HIGHLY recommend Marta as a tour guide! She was great. Thanks!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao! Thank you so much for your very kind review :D I am glad you enjoyed your experience with me. I hope to see you again in the future! Marta

Our ancient Rome tour with Marta was the highlight of our Rome trip. Marta was so knowledgeable, wonderful, friendly, passionate and an amazing guide. She knew so much about Roman history! It was our first time in Rome and we learned so much from her tour. The book she brought along was also great to help us visualize how things were back in the day. She also gave us some fantastic local recommendations for restaurants and other sites to see. We loved Marta and highly recommend her as a tour guide!
