We had Patricia as our tour guide and she was excellent. She spoke English very well and made the tour fun and enjoyable. Definitely recommend the early bird tour to beat the rush.

Amazing tour
Alessandro (Alex) was a fantastic guide on our early morning tour of the Vatican. He was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable about what we were seeing on this tour and he had a great passion for sharing it. His English was great and there was no problem with communication. It was nice not to have to stand in line and to kill have guidance on how to see each area so we could get the most out of it.

A taxi picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off at the designated meeting place which was easy to find. There were only 5 of us on the tour, so it was very personal and unique. This was our second Together in Rome your and I was very impressed with both.

Dear Patty , We appreciate your time and patience to write such a converted and detailed feedback about the tour and Alessandro as well. It is always a big pleasure to see many smiling and satisfied faces , who prefer our services and quality. Our semi-private tours guaranteed always skipping all the lines and minimum amount of participants, which keeps everyone satisfied. On the other hand, thank you for positive words about Alessandro one more time. He is a very professional art historian and has a very deep knowledge not only of Vatican, but also Rome and other destinations of Italy as well. Really pleased to read that you have been enjoyed by the quality. We will let Alex know about this very review. Have a lovely day.

Superb Experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
Although we have traveled fairly widely, this is my wife and I’s first trip to Rome. We have been on all kinds of tours. I can truly say that our tour yesterday with Alessandro Chiarot was one of the best. His enthusiasm was obvious and his knowledge and enthusiasm infectious. Despite the heat and crowds he made this a very personal experience. I would recommend him to anyone interested in understanding the history and art of the Vatican.

Our favorite tour in Rome - a must do!!
Jul 2019 • Couples
My husband and I were traveling for our honeymoon and both agreed this was the best tour we participated in while in Italy! Our tour guide Alex was just fantastic - he made the experience wonderful for our group. He took the time to learn the name of each guest and was a pro at navigating the crowds of the vatican. This is a must do while in Rome and I'd highly recommend the early bird tour so you can avoid the long lines and the heat! Thank you Alex!

Our tour guide Alex was amazing. He knew how to navigate through the Vatican masses but still give us a great experience. He was very knowledgeable of the artwork and history of the Vatican and had an interesting perspective on how it has grown and changed throughout history. 10/10 would recommend.

BEST tour of all Rome!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This was the best tour we had in Rome! We had such a personal experience and we’re able to see the Sistine ceiling in an almost empty room! We felt like royalty, and Alex was incredibly knowledgeable! When we make it back to Rome again, I would definitely look him up again and see what other tours he offers!

Amazing tours
We did two tours with Rachele, one at the Vatican and one at the Colosseum. Both were AMAZING. No waiting in lines, access to places that the majority of tour groups aren’t able to see, and Rachele is very informative. I would highly recommend taking a tour with her. My husband isn’t a history buff like me so of course I dragged him along, but even he enjoyed these two tours. A tour with Rachele is so worth it!!!!

Informed and Inspirational Guide
Jun 2019 • Friends
This was a great choice for a tour experience. There was just our group of four and one other couple. Our guide (Alessandro/Alex) was extremely knowledgeable and adept at tailoring information to all levels of knowledge in our group. His camaraderie with the museum staff and other guides was apparent and helpful. Despite June crowds, our experience was meaningful and enjoyable because of Alex.

Dear Bryan, Thank you very much for such a nice words. Yes, that what makes us different. We organise always semi-private tours with highly professional guides (English/Spanish) and that is why all the customers are so satisfied, like you. We will forward your feedback to Alessandro and he will be happy to hear that, definitely. Hope to see you again in our other activities here in Rome. Have a lovely weekend! Ciao a presto.

Alessandro Chiarot as our guide
My wife and I rarely take tours as I prefer to explore things on my own. As the Vatican is rather overwhelming, we took advantage of this through our hotel (Campo di Fiore). Glad we did.

Alessandro or Alex was fantastic. He explained everything well and gave us many interesting insights. I am glad we booked the slightly more expensive small group tour as it provided a more intimate experience. Highly recommend Alessandro.

Great early bird tour with Alex
Sep 2018 • Couples
Great small-group tour (just 5 people!) with no waiting in lines. Alex, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about art, guiding us to all the major sites as well as a few hidden gems, and providing just the right amount of history to enhance our enjoyment without boring us with too many facts. I come from an Italian family, and I appreciated him pausing in the Gallery of Maps to point out the exact location of the small town they're from. Great experience!
