Flawless and Amazing visit
Exploro tours is an amazing Tour Operator! I really loved how everything was so on point, the guide Rosella was absolutely wonderful, we felt like at home during our visit. Hope to come back soon to Rome to enjoy many other experiences with them. Top class!

Something I would recommend at least once in a lifetime
I had the opportunity to access this exclusive Vatican tour with a couple of friends in July. We were attracted by this particular organised tour because we managed to visit incredible places privately, all punctually managed by the tour’s personnel, without having to waste time in queues and self organisation, especially during these COVID times. Staff was welcoming and cars were clean. Something I would recommend at least once in a lifetime.

Just wonderful!
I cannot speak highly enough of this tour!! We hadn’t prebooked anything before we arrived in Rome as I was waiting to get a feel for the city. I wanted a hotel pick up to visit the Vatican and it looked as if I had left it to late. However messaging via internet live chat I had wonderful service and even late at night pick up was confirmed for the next day. A comfortable ride took us to meet the wonderful Lisa and I am in awe of the way she negotiated the crowds ( which are horrendous!!!) looked after the group and told us the most wonderful information about the art treasures we saw. I learned so much on this tour and I am so appreciative. My advice is never try to do this independently!!! You need an expert guide to monitor you through the maze of buildings , security checks, and to give you the information on what you are experiencing. Explorotours were just wonderful. The experience would have been completely overwhelming without Lisa’s expert guidance and we had an unforgettable day through the Vatican Sistine Chapel and St Peter’s Basillica.

Outstanding!
Jul 2018 • Family
I booked two separate private tours through Exploro tours; the Vatican Tour and the Colosseum tour. Both tours included hotel pick up and a private guide. Both guides were phenomenal! Our vatican guide, and older gentleman who seemed to know everyone inside the Vatican was knowledgable, friendly and filled with interesting facts! I wish I could remember his name because he was awesome!

Our private guide for the Colosseum was equally as awesome! She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She was very patient as we stopped for pictures and was awesome interact with our kids.

And before I forget, I wanted to mention the manager at Explore Tours, Allessio. He was very patient with me as we went back and forth with emails attempting to work out all the details. I know this is long; however, I felt like this business did a fantastic job and I think you'll like them too.

Don't think twice, book with them! They are the BEST!

Great tour of the Vatican will recommend!
Jun 2018 • Couples
Alex was awesome... very knowledgeable with great delivery, language (English) was impeccable, pace of the tour was right on, and everything went smoothly. It doesn't hurt that the Vatican is an overwhelming experience for a first timer. We have friends and family visiting Rome soon and will definitely recommend the same experience for them.
