Have been to Rome and to Vatican many times and have done many tours. Francesco was simply the best. His knowledge and passion for history made this Vatican tour the best. Can't wait to try another tour with Francesco on next visit!

Paola was our tour guide and she was absolutely fantastic. We learned so many interesting facts about the Vatican, it’s history, and Rome. We had a small group which was great because we didn’t need headsets. Paola took the time in each area to explain the art and it’s influence. Make sure to bring water and wear comfortable shoes. I highly recommend this tour!

Claudia was great! She met us promptly at the entrance and we proceeded right in skipping the very long lines. As it turned out, we had Claudia to ourselves for a private tour (not expected). She was very knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour and level of detail for our interest. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed.

Our tour of the Vatican was a wonderful experience. Our guide Cristiana was outstanding. She was great fun to be with, provided great insight and details for all parts of the museums' history, art, sculpture, and even papal politics. She can clearly provide information in as much detail as you can absorb. My wife has early onset Alzheimer's and Cristiana made a point to be sensitive to her pace and the things that interested her.....much appreciated by us. We would certainly engage Tours of the Vatican and Cristiana again on a future visit.

We loved this tour it was way better than expected. Our guide Thomas was incredibly well informed and very engaging, there was nothing he didn't know!!

We skipped all the queues and gained such a good understanding of this amazing place thanks to Thomas. It was great being in a small group as we could ask all our questions at any point.

If I could do this tour again I would. Loved it.

Thanks for a great day. 😁

Maria our guide was perfect. The meet and greet place was perfect. In our group was 8 people 2 were kiwis same as us , Maria’s English was excellent which was great! Maria’s knowledge was endless - unfortunately you can’t avoid the crowds - but being in a small group with Maria was the bee’s knee’s - we could hear her without wearing the ear pieces and looking at groups with 25 or more - aghhh !! Thoroughly recommend 5 stars from us. 😊

Our family of 8 had the pleasure of having Francesco as our tour guide. He was absolutely amazing. Out of the 8 in our group, we had (2) young children, 6 years & 9 years. He kept the kids wanting to learn more and look for pictures in the Vatican that he taught us about before entering. Never did the kids complain, they wanted to hear more.... Francesco kept everyone fascinated by facts and taught us so much about the Vatican, Sistine Chapel & the Basilica. During our trip to Italy we had a total of (4) tours with different tour companies... Our entire group agrees that this tour was the best of our trip, with the best guide! We are so thankful we got paired with our guide, he was fantastic! A+++ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Say no more! The kids loved it. Francesco was our guide and engaged the kids at their level, with “spotting” items in different areas. Plus numerous historical stories and info. Beats reading a guide book and having ones nose down in that book most of the time!

Excellent tour! We skipped the very long lines (and we visited off season, and still the lines were very long!) Our guide, Laura, was amazing. Just the right amount of information, interesting, and very pleasant. We had a great time, and will use this tour again when we return in the spring!! Highly recommend.
