Our family visited Rome in May. Half of us had been their before. We have older teenagers, so we needed to balance having a deep dive on the culture and art with a high level fly by of things to do. The girls wanted shopping and movie sights; whereas the wife and I wanted deep historical cultural knowledge.

We picked three tours, Walking Tour, Colosseum/Vatican and Morning Foodie Tour. All were great. The key is to be candid with your guide as to what your group wants and doesn't want. Each one of the guides and we had three different ones will do their best to exceed your expectations and ensure each of your party has a great experience.

You can really tell they love their work and their city.

We had a wonderful tour with Angela Caiati from Eyes of Rome tours. We saw the Vatican Museum, St Peters Basilica, the Coliseum, Forum and the Parthenon.

Angela has such a intimate knowledge of all of the sites she really makes for an enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend her to all our friends who travel to Rome.

My husband and I used Eyes of Rome private tours for the Vatican museum & it was the best decision we could have made during our stay in Rome. First of all we received great service from the Eyes of Rome staff given the fact that we booked our tour in a very short notice, a day before to be specific. Lucky for us, there was a tour guide available! Silvia Monti, our private tour was amazing! she was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and professional. She provided a lot of interesting information on history of the Vatican as we explored it (Sistine chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, etc.) Silvia met us at our hotel, we took a taxi to Vatican city and she even made our drive to the Vatican fun and interesting as she gave us information of different areas of Rome as we drove by them. She was so nice that It felt like you were talking to a friend and not a person you just met. Regarding the tour, it is worth every euro! Every minute was interesting and fascinating and it definitely made our experience around the Vatican an amazing one. It would have been so different going on our own when you just walk around without knowing much about history about the place, or the art in it, having a tour highly will impact your experience in a positive way. Additionally, her English was perfect. We highly recommend Eyes of Rome tours!

We loved our 3 hour tour of the Vatican with Karin Libri. Karen met us at the hotel and we traveled to the Vatican. Prior to the tour we discussed what we were interested in and level of detail. Before entering the Sistine Chapel Karin gave a wonderful briefing on the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica which allowed us to focus on the key aspects of all the history. Karin really made the history come alive for us. At the end of the tour she was able to arrange a special blessing for my wife, daughter and I in Saint Peter's. A perfect way to end our day.Karin was very knowledgeble and personable. Definitely a must way to see the Vatican.
