This tour exceeded our expectations. It was easy to meet our fabulous guide, Francesco. He is extremely knowledgeable, nice and funny. He kept my teenaged daughters engaged for three hours, which says a lot! Francesco spent more than three hours with us on his own time because he wanted us to see and learn about everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Francesco and we learned so much about Ancient Rome, the art in the Vatican Museum and of course the Sistine Chapel. I highly recommend this tour and be sure to request Francesco!

Our time with Tomas was so enriching. His doctorate in archaeology made him a wealth of knowledge and his understanding of history and its place in current culture made the walls of the Coliseum, the forum and Vatican City literally come to life before us!

Additionally, he had excellent recommendations for additional tours to experience on our own!

Our visit to Rome was made all the more impactful due to our time with Tomas. An excellent and passionate guide.

Our driver Stafano was also friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and on time!

We had the pleasure of touring the Vatican with Francesco. a licensed tour guide.Thanks to Francesco's extensive knowledge, we felt we made the most of the limited time we had to enjoy the fabulous Vatican collection. Perhaps by prepping ourselves far more than we had, we might have come close to gaining an appreciation and nuanced understanding that Francesco provided. Ask for him, you won't be sorry.
