Mayta Munson Private tour guide in Rome - Italy

Mayta Munson

Guide profile:

I am a professional tour guide of Rome & Province and proud to be one of the few Americans to be an officially licensed guide in this territory. I offer private tours only, exclusively for the requesting party, to small groups of family, friends, and colleagues who want to experience the best of our most beautiful city. Born and raised in Chicago, I have a BA in Art History-Archaeology from Washington University, St Louis, and have done graduate studies in Art History (UPenn) and Film (NYU). A long-time resident of Rome, I fell in love with the city before I had ever traveled to Europe, and I never cease to be enchanted by the city's infinite wonders. I hope to transmit to visitors my enthusiasm, insights and passion for Rome in its many aspects: art, architecture, history, culture, cuisine and modern day life and make your time in Rome a very special moment.

NB All tours in Rome city proper are a minimum of 3 hours.

NB All tours to the Roman countryside are a minimum of 4 hours.

We decided on Mayta, as she advertised on doing family tours . I was not able to get my email thru to her without booking her first. That m ay have been Viator issue or technological issue. Her strengths were her depth of knowledge of Rome. Her weakness may have been not relating to the children . There was a healthy dose of cynicism in her delivery which can be perceived negatively. I was not clearly aware she was not able to or would not tour the Roman Forum.

Tour guide services/sample itinerary:

With me as your licensed tour guide, you will be able to skip the lines at the Vatican Museums/Sistine Chapel and Colosseum. I can arrange for (mandatory) reservations at the Borghese Gallery if you book this tour with me. Because every itinerary I conduct is exclusively for your small party of visitors, tours can be customized to your preferences, covering the Vatican, Rome's ancient monuments, churches, Renaissance and Baroque fountains and the neighborhoods of Papal Rome ("Old Rome"). The Vatican is entirely a walking tour of 3 to 4 hours. All other tours are done with comfortable a.c. or heated Mercedes vehicle and courteous, professional driver to allow you to see in comfort, ease and efficiently more of the city, including stunning hilltop vistas, out-of-the-way places and Rome's hidden treasures, much more than can be seen on foot, with inside visits to the most important sights. The pace of the tour is suited to your preferences.
