Maurizio was a great guide! Before I booked the tour he answered all of my questions promptly and took care of everything for us. He was very friendly & knowledgeable about the history of the sites. My mother who is a senior traveled with us & has trouble walking for long distances & Maurizio was very caring & attentive to her needs. He took us to an awesome local restaurant to eat as well as a quick stop to get gelato. We had some good laughs as well & I really enjoyed spending time with him.

Tour: #446569, Colosseum Private Tour + Underground of St. Clement's Basilica, Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Jan 15/19

Maurizio gave a tour of the Palatine Hill, Forum, Colosseum and the church of San Clemente to me and 15 of my high school students. He was great with the students. He helped us see through the ruins of the Forum, explaining why it looks the way it does and how it got that way. It was the perfect foundation for our visit to Rome. I'm happy we got such a good foundation at the beginning of our stay in Rome. We were able to apply what we learned with Maurizio to other sites we saw later in the trip.

This was our first time my husband and I used Tours by Locals and I strongly recommend it for anyone looking to have that personal private tour. Maurizio was super friendly, approachable and very knowledgeable. He was very thorough in his explanations, made it fun and enjoyable. Even though there is a lot of history in Rome, he broke it down in a way that was easily digested. At the end of the tour he gave us a great dinner recommendation to where he and the locals eat, and the food was phenomenal.

Tour: #446769, Ostia Antica Private Tour (Day trip from Rome), Rome, Lazio, Italy    view tour
Date: Sep 11/18

The tour of Ostia was a highlight of our trip to Rome. Of the many ruins visited Ostia was the most interesting and was nearly empty when we arrived on a Tuesday afternoon. To get there from Rome is just a short train ride and walk from the station. Maurizio F. is very gracious and is an expert in the archeology of Ostia. What remains intact after 2000 years is incredible! We highly recommend this tour with Maurizio F. for his keen wit, fun attitude, and expertise!

Maurizio was awesome. He moved at a pace that was appropriate for the entire family. We had visited the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill years ago so he made sure to show us things we had not seen before. Our highlight was seeing San Clemente church. We should have booked an entire day.

This tour was wonderful! Maurizio was knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much about the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican and the Basilica. The early morning tour gave us the opportunitity to really view the museum and the Chapel and take in their incredible beauty. We enjoyed our time with Maurizio very much.

Our last day in Rome. We saw things really of the beaten path. These were all suggestions of Maurizio. I did not know that there was a Cathedral in Rome. If he had not mentioned and planned it we would have missed out on an important aspect of Papal History.....a pity other guides do not do great research and take people to these hidden gems in Rome. And the restaurant he suggested to end the tour with was REAL Roman cuisine. Fabulous guiding by Maurizio.

Sistine Chapel........40,000 visitors a day and we had no overcrowding problems. We initially had thought we would be standing in the longs lines to get in. Maurizio's advice spared us immense time and gave us the breathing room needed to explore all of Michaelangelo's works. Rules are rules and it is a quite space. BUT Maurizio explained each panel in depth prior to entering so that we could easily distinguish each panel. No bumping to shoving and no long waits. Timing perfect.

Maurizio has a true understanding of history, architecture and archeology. The tour was planned in such a way that we saw all that we wanted to see and more along the way by taking routes of the beaten tracks. This was fantastic as I was travelling with my frail 83 year old mother. It was a very hot day in Rome yet he always placed her well being over anything else. And the ice cream was delicious.

The tour was fantastic as one could see ground zero Rome. 10 x better than Pompei and with and Archeologist who knows more than any of the other local tour guides. OSTIA ANTICA much better option than Pompei. And a stone throw away from Rome.

Maurizio was a fantastic guide. My mother fully trusts him at 83 years old. And she can be difficult. Still tours to come this week with Maurizio.
