Eternal Tourist would like to make your visit to Rome a memorable one. As your private tour guide, my mission is to give you the best the city has to offer: Rome’s major architectural and artistic treasures, Rome’s hidden corners, Rome off the beaten track.
More than a guided tour of Rome, I’d like to give you a true Roman experience, introducing you to the sights and delights of the most storied city ever as your personal tour guide.
Here is my calling card for professional private guided tours of Rome. About me, Mayta Munson: a Chicago native with a degree in Art History-Archaeology, I studied at Washington University, St. Louis (BA); Boston College, Boston (MA program, History); the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (MA program, Art History); and NYU, New York City (Tisch Graduate Film, MFA program).I have one degree plus a well-rounded education in the Humanities. Through my studies, and before I ever travelled to Europe and Italy, I fell in love with Rome and always knew Rome would be my city.
One of the few Americans to possess the tour guide license for Rome and the Roman countryside, I have many years’ experience giving guided group tours of Rome, the Vatican, Villa D’Este in Tivoli, and the Castelli Romani hill towns for major US and international tour operators. My real joy as a Rome tour guide is conducting private guided tours for small groups of families and friends, partners, and business colleagues. Experience shows that small group private tours are the best way to appreciate Rome.
I do not form groups of people unknown to one another for my tours. All tours are private tours, exclusively for your party. Since all itineraries are private tours, every guided tour will be solely for your small group with flexible itineraries customized to your requests. The dates and times are set according to your schedule.
I am pleased to offer you:
private guided walking tours of the Vatican and the Borghese Gallery; and
private guided limo and minivan tours of Rome and the Roman countryside.
At the Vatican Museums/Sistine Chapel and Colosseum you will be able to skip the line and enter directly with reserved tickets. As your private tour guide of Rome, I will show you the sights you want to see: Rome’s splendid ancient ruins, fountains and churches, Rome’s grand squares and the charming narrow lanes of the old neighborhoods, stunning hilltop vistas and more, always moving at the pace most comfortable for you.
As your private tour guide, I will share with you not only my insights, but also my passion and enthusiasm for Rome, the world’s most beautiful city. Tour guiding is the profession I was truly born for, and my aim, with each and every guided tour of Rome I give, is to see Rome with fresh eyes as I reveal to you the city’s unique treasures and history. In a certain sense you may consider me an eternal tourist in the Eternal City.
To inquire about rates, itineraries and reservations, please use the contact form on this site to reach me via e-mail. I will try to answer each and every request promptly and personally.
