We unfortunately had a wet day but it didn't spoil the trip was very educational to learn everything about the start to finish of the Roman Empire our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we learned some interesting facts. A bit of a trek up and down steps many uneven but worth it amazing views from the top.

Booked a 12 person max tour of the Vatican to start at 1030. Arrived at 1020 and the tour was already started on the street and there were 14 people. Tour was also supposed to be 3 hours and it was under 2.5, overall a poor organization but the tour guide did her best and was very nice and helpful

We had a wonderful local guide who led us through the 7 Hills Tour and the Colosseum in Rome, and I am quite certain we would not have had such an interesting and detailed experience without her. There is just SO MUCH to see and learn about! We arrived at the time this venue opened, so we had very little... More

The Vatican is huge, full of history, and would probably rank as one of the largest, finest art galleries in the world, if it were in that category. Our Guide from 7 Hills was knowledgable, explained the major works of art prior to us seeing them (like the Sistine Chapel). In that way we were fully versed before seeing the... More

Andrea's Vatican tour was recommended to us by a friend. We were not disappointed in any regard. We could only visit the Vatican on a Monday, which is the worst day for crowds, however, negotiating the crowds with Andrea at the helm was a must, it would have resulted in frustrating done any other way. His knowledge and care that... More

Went on this tour as and was very very happy. Why you would bother standing in line I have no idea ... you can wait 2 hours or more ... this way you skip straight past it.

Andrea is a wonderful, experienced guide. He's very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour covered everything I expected to see, plus a few extras (popemobiles!) that I hadn't known of. Nice small group (10 of us?), with headsets. Very well planned tour that took into account all of the practical things (bathroom breaks, rosary blessings, Vatican postmarks, photo ops). Great value,... More

They chose a nice quiet location to meet at which makes it much easier to get the low down before you hit the huge crowds. It was a fantastic way to quickly get around all the key things to see at the Vatican. Andrea is very knowledgeable and explained all the history really well. Its fantastic that the group stays...
