We had a cruise stop in Rome and because it was my first time there, and I have been fascinated by ancient civilizations since I was a girl, I wanted to see everything I could in the very limited time I had. Luckily, Mauricio and his Mercedes made it happen. No one can believe the amount of things we packed into a 7-hour visit. And, these weren’t just drive-bys. We went into 2 churches, walked around the Coliseum and inside the walls of the Vatican, climbed the Spanish steps, threw a coin (sweet Mauricio gave us each one since we had only bills!) into Trevi Fountain, had a cappuccino at a sidewalk cafe, and stopped for pictures at almost every place we saw. We didn’t do anything that required reservations or extra cost, we just went for a ride with Mauricio and with his expert guidance, we covered enough of Rome to feel like we spent two days there! What an amazing city!! Mauricio is very professional, knowledgeable (born in Rome so he knows the history and the shortcuts!), and he offers an incredible value because he covers so much ground, yet you never feel rushed. Also, like the best guides, he takes you to a local restaurant where someone speaks English and gets you seated and taken care of. 100% will call him again when I’m next in Rome, because believe me, I will return!
