Max is a great, knowledgeable guide. We booked 3 tours with him. This was on our last day in Rome. Early morning tour. Skip the line. The Vatican is Huge. With Max we felt like we got a good taste of what there is to see. If you are going to Rome, book a tour with Max. He is smart, fun, and an excellent guide.

A golf cart tour is definitely the way to go in Rome. After seeing the traffic in Rome we were worried about being in a golf cart. But there was no problem at all. The cart can go where traffic does not go. Got us close to what we needed to see. What an awesome way to see Rome. And we were not exhausted by the end of the day because we rode everywhere. Only had to walk to see sights, not to get to the sights. This was perfect as 3 of the 4 of us in our group have bad knees.

Max is a great guide. He paid attention to our needs and adjusted the tour accordingly. 3 of the 4 of us have bad knees and he considered that in his guiding. He is very knowledgeable. This was a perfect tour. Definitely book a tour with Max if you are going to Rome.

Max was a knowledgeable, friendly tour guide. He did his best to avoid large groups going through. We had plenty of time in the Sistine Chapel to look at the art. We had a late tour and he stayed with us to help us with directions when the tour was over. He also recommended a great restaurant for lunch. Family had a memorable lunch at this restaurant. He guided us through the crowds so we never had to wait in line. We were a group of nine, so that was a wonderful thing.I would definitely recommend

Max is incredibly knowledgable and absolutely in love with Rome- which makes you fall in love with it as well. Would highly recommend Max for anyone, especially those with teens or tweens who may need extra help paying attention. He has really interesting stories about EVERYTHING. I also felt like my daughter got the equivalent of a college level semester course in Art History- she knows what to look for now when she analyzes a painting.

Max was punctual and delivered on everything we had agreed upon. He is charming and knows how to present Rome! We only had one day and he took it upon himself to see that we conquered Rome in a day! We had intensive visits to all the most important attractions and he took us to an excellent place for lunch; one of the best meals we had in all of Italy! Max gave us loads of information and historical facts (as well as some of his personal interpretations) but never over loaded us with too much information.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are my best friends; hope to see you in Rome again. Ciao Max

We were a group of 4 one in a manual wheelchair. The 6 seater golf buggy was a fantastic way so see Rome and the chair was easily carried on the back of the buggy. We had 2 guides during the day Max (for the Colosseum) and Vincent for the rest of the day - both of whom were superb. The tour started and ended at St Peter's Station. Our 6 hour tour included the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Colosseum (inside) and St Mark's Square. At each stop Max or Vincent did all the pushing of the chair. Fantastic

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.

Wow, what a great tour we had with Max! We only had 6 hours on a hot June day with hordes of tourists in Rome, and yet we saw every site we wanted to visit in the breezy comfort of a golf cart and with a fountain of Rome history in Max. Everything was perfect from Max meeting us at our motor coach drop off, avoiding much of Rome's traffic through alleyways, a wonderful lunch arranged by Max and avoiding the lines at the Vatican. If you want the highlights of Rome in one day, this is the tour for you!

Massimiliano, or Max, was an AMAZING guide! We covered all major sites in a full day tour (Pantheon, Colosseum, Forum, Trevi Ftn, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's. He was extremely knowledgeable about each place, knew all the best places to capture photos of us and was very willing at each stop to take as many pictures as we wanted. He was a pro at skirting around big crowds, and finding places to talk that were more secluded and private. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone traveling to Rome. Bravissimo!

We are really glad we choose a private tour w/Massimiliano versus group or even just on our own. He really knows his stuff and how to maneuver you around so you are moving when you want to be and comfortable when your not. He answered all our questions and just made it a great afternoon. We feel lucky to have had him as our guide...Arrivederci

Don't try to see the Roman Forum and the Colosseum without a good guide. Since they are mostly ruins, you need a good guide like Max to understand what you're looking at and what they used to look like. It was my second time at the Colosseum, but the first time, i only looked at the exterior. With Max, we went through the shorter/faster line and had a better understanding of what we were seeing.

Máximo was informative. He was not flexible. Our ship docked two hours late and he made the tour two hours short even though we opted not to have lunch so we could see as much as we could. We paid 100 euros additional to the drivers so that we could stay 1.5 to be able to eat and shop. The tour was never the time allocated on the aggrement. I think a partial credit is appropriate.

Our golf tour of Rome was the highlight of our trip. We loved traveling the side streets of Rome and not having to sit in traffic. We saw so much more in a day than we ever could have seen on our own. And, it was great that the tour was flexible and designed just for us. It included some things that were on our list of things to see -- and things that we would never have known about to put on the list. The tour was a big hit with our two teenagers. We would do the tour again in a heartbeat.

Max was very informative and very patient as we were running (quite literally) a little late. Highly recommend seeing the Vatican this way, as there is so much there, you really should focus on a few things.

Sight seeing Rome in a cart was the most enjoying way we can spend the day with Max. We loved every moment of it since all six of us was in one cart.Max took us through all the small streets of Rome bringing us to the best sights of Rome. We had a day to remember. Thank you Massimiliano for all you did for us.Ciao

Max was a great guide. We wanted to hit most of the major highlights in Rome in a day, and we nearly accomplished it. Unfortunately St. Peter's Basilica was closed that day - but Max had no control over that. We somehow didn't make the Spanish Steps either... but the locations we did visit (Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon, Sistine Chapel) were fantastic and he was a great guide. Did a great job getting us through it all and keeping it fun for the kids.

Excellent way to see Rome in a golf buggy; especially travelling with Mum. There were 3 of us and Massimo tailored the tour to personally match our wants. Fantastic morning with a genuine Roman who felt like a friend showing us around his backyard. Would highly recommend him and also for the tour of the Vatican.

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

Max was awesome in every way, he was prompt, friendly, knowledagable and fun, his tour was a highlight of our visit to Rome. The golf cart tour of Ancient Rome was a fun and efficient way to view the highlights of the city, Max tailored it to suit our party which included my parents and my three kids ages 4, 10 and 13 so he had a tough crowd to please and he did, effortlessly. I highly recommend this tour and Massimiliano

Max was a wonderful tour guide and I would highly recommend a tour of the Vatican with him. We would never have seen as much as we did during our short time at the Vatican without Max. Our three teenagers and ourselves were so interested in everything he had to say. He was so kind, courteous and knowledgeable. Our tour of St Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum and Borgia Apartments was fantastic, bravo and thank you Max. Diana B., USA

He suggested an excellent resturant for lunch, the best pizza we have ever tasted! He was informative, great with the kids and easy to be with. A great day!

The 2 tours we had with Max made our visit to Rome. Our experience of the city just wouldn't have been anywhere near as successful for us if it was not for Max's knowledge, humor and support. The Vatican tour 'unlocked' the knowledge we needed to fully appreciate what was on display. The golf cart tour of the city is a must do. In the time available we could not have covered in 5 days what Max exposed us to over these 2 half day tours. I fully recommend any visitor to Rome to use these 2 tours

Max was phenomenal!!!! We did the all day tour and could not have asked for a better tour guide. He was so personable, caring, and very knowledgeable about EVERYTHING! We had 5 people and our golf cart sat about 8 people comfortably. There is not one question that Max couldn't answer. He was so good with handling all of the tickets and even went out of his way to help us purchase coliseum tickets for the next day. We would highly recommend him to all and would do it again in a heartbeat!

Max was absolutely wonderful! My family had a most enjoyable day with him and we truly appreciated his concern and patience with our parents- seniors who were walking at a slower pace. His explanation about the history and significance of Rome's various landmarks made us appreciate these more. It was a fun-filled day and will surely do so again with Max if we go back to Rome.. We highly recommend Max!
