“Very special tours...Vatican, Rome City Tour, Colosseum”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Our friend recommended Presto Tours and they were incredible! Our vacation began with a family member becoming ill and we were unable to take part in our tours as arranged. Carmelo was so kind and accommodating and immediately gave us other possible times. Because of her concern and flexibility we were able to rearrange our tours. We were given very clear meeting point instructions, maps and tour details which helped immensely in a new city. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly and always considered our individual interests. Thank you so much to Tiffany for our special Rome City Tour, to Federica for her expertise in the Colosseum Tour, and to Giulia for our tour of the Vatican. We highly recommend Presto Tours!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

My husband and I found the tour of the Vatican museum (Raphael rooms) wonderful and informative (good to read a little before). Our guide was a charming woman who knew so much. We booked a semi private session and by chance it was just the 2 of us!
The tour went a little over so as not to miss the stunning St. Peter's Basilica. Fantastic experience all round.

“Presto Tours!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We chose this tour based on the recommendation of the same agent who booked our hotel. It was fabulous! A small group (6) lead by a very knowledgeable guide who answered all our questions and then gave us plenty of time at the end to explore on our own and marvel at the beauty and history of the Vatican City.

“Wonderful Family Tour of the Vatican”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Our family of four was lucky enough to wind up with a personal our of the Vatican by a great guide named Julia. We were met on time and quickly gained entry through the Museum before the vast majority of the crowd. Julia allowed us to take some great pictures with the dome in the background at our first stop. We then moved into the museums and saw many statues, maps, animals along the way. The Sistine Chapel was a huge highlight to us after Julia explained what to look for on the ceiling and the mural beyond the altar. From there we warmed up outside while learning about St. Peter's "Square". Once inside St. Peter's, we were all amazed by its' size, beauty, craftmanship, and, artistry. Pictures do not begin to do it justice...you simply must experience it in person. Thanks so much to Julia for being a wonderful guide to our family!

“Fantastic Private Tour”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

We were met exactly on time by our guide, Marcello, just outside the Vatican and ushered straight through, past all the queues, straight into the tour.

Marcello spoke perfect english and was extremely knowledgable but also entertaining, making the whole tour a joy. It goes without saying that the Vatican is a stunning attraction but the tour made was made all the better for having the private guide. Highly recommended !
