Paulos knowledge of art and the Vatican unbelievable!
Sep 2020 • Family
Paulo has an unbelievable amount of knowledge and was able to answer any questions. He especially took his time and care listening to our 6 year old twins and showing them what he thought they would enjoy too. The office were so friendly and there is no way we would have learnt so much in those two hours without them. Worth every penny!

Only Way to See the Vatican and Sistine Chapel
Jul 2019
This was the best tour we could do. The lines are so long and the groups are so big. We skipped all the lines including the skip the line, line. To have a small group and to have the opportunity to ask our questions and see what we wanted to see was priceless. The Vatican and Sistine Chapel can be overwhelming, but they are so beautiful. I wouldn’t miss this. We took a tour about 15 years ago and didn’t have a private tour and were crushed by the crowds. This was much better.

Perfect use of time

Time used to perfection. The museum and the Chapel are a must but there is much too see, a guided tour is the best choice to see most in an orderly manner. Specially if your stay in Rome is short. Everything worked all right for my wife and I

Great Tour
Jan 2020
We are really glad about the tour service due to the knowledge of the tour guide. Francesca is really professional when telling the story of the Vatican. I know that the service is not included with the Vatican ticket, but we are really satisfied and enjoy during the tour. Francesca is very kind to us, especially to my mother. Thus, I really recommend for those who want to have a small-group tour and bring the family.

Communication Breakdown?
Booked this tour online before we went. Got to the vatican and asked an official guide to confirm meeting point. We were told to meet at this point for 12 and we were early. As 12 came around no one arrived, we went back to the vatican guide who rang the number at the bottom of the receipt, we were advised we were at the wrong location and the tour had left? I contacted Quo Vadis Tour on my return who advised that we were in the wrong, location and they had waited for us for half an hour and as such we will not get a refund. Confusing?? We managed to book locally with another company which was excellent. Additionally please note the charge does not include actual entrance into the vatican, that is extra.

Hi Mrs, At first I think you asked to someone on the street and I'm sure you followed an ILLEGAL GUIDE because no one called us. Of course....Surely they tryed to sell you a tour althought you have already booked a LEGAL tour with us Second: every information you needed about us like a meeting point, tickets and so on you have in your reservation, let you check. Nothing is hidden. Finally you tryed to get a refund althought you have a got an illegal tour on the street and writing this bad reviews evrybody can see that is much better DON'T BUY THE ILLEGAL TOUR ON THE STREET. So, Mrs Thanks a lot of your review. Staff Quo VAdis, the best. Francesca

Toegangsprijs Vaticaan is NIET inbegrepen
Dec 2019
It is the dirty trick of this QUO VADIS TOUR to not include the entrance fee for the Vatican, so you have to pay an other €24 per person on arrival.
The tour itself however by Francesca is excellent.
On this tour you will not see the famous round stairways many people want to take a picture of.

I highly recommend this superb tour
Nov 2019
The people who run this tour are top notch. They were super friendly, they went out to find the last few people for our group who were a bit lost. The group was small and the tour guide was exceptional. She ensured that we understand the critical parts of the museum which is vast, took us out to the educational panels despite the rain so that we had a full art lesson before going into the sistine chapel. I didn't mind that the tickets to the Vatican were not included - we got great value from the tour as well as skipping so many of the huge queues and had an audio guide service. It was both a history and art lesson wrapped up in this tour. It would have taken me weeks of research to get near to the value of this tour had I visited the Vatican on my own.

It would not have been possible to see so much without our excellent guide and being in a very small group. A bit pricey though.

We enjoyed the tour itself, very interesting, and our guide, Francesca very friendly and a mine of information. But on arriving at the tour operator's office and discovering we had to pay extra to get our tickets was a nasty surprise! T.A's description of what's included in the price when booking the tour was not clear. The additiobal cost is the charge to actually enter into the grounds of the Vatican. Why not include this in the actual description and booking of the tour? Would be so much clearer and a better trade description!

Our guide Freedrico was so knowledgeable and helpful. The tour is amazing, I would recommend arriving 10/15 minutes earlier than your scheduled time as we didn't and missed our start, no problem though as the tour operator put us with another group, just meant we started an hour later than planned. Be exoected to pay when you arrive for the tour as I believe the money payed to trip advisor is your vatican tickets. Not so many ques first thing in the morning
