I had two friends with me and wanted to share the experience of this Trastevere trip that I had previously had. It didn't disappoint. The meeting point is at the island on the Tiber. Once you get there, it's a leisurely walk after that, with a stop for coffee if you wish. We got to see some lovely Churches and... More

A very friendly driver picked us up at our ship and drove us into Rome where we met our guide, Francesca. She was fantastic and very enthusiastic. She presented lots of history but not to the point that it was overwhelming. Our all day tour included St Peter's Square Vatican, Sistine Chapel, Colosseum, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Her iPad presentation... More

In October of 2014, we (three women from California) contacted Private Tours of Rome for a private tour of the Vatican Museum. Our tour guide was Barbara Lancellotti and she was excellent, very informative, a good English speaker, and she tailored our tour to our desires. She has a university degree in Art History, so could point out important details.... More

I looked a long time to find a private and personal tour to the Vatican. Our guide, Francesca, was delightful, energetic and passionate about our tour. Her knowledge base and friendly manner were priceless! She made the Vatican come alive with history. She led us thru the huge crowds of people and really made the four of us feel special... More

Viera was our tour guide for the Vatican. A tour is a MUST for the Vatican. We were thrilled that the tour was just the six of us; truly a private tour. All of the other tours we saw had at least 25 or more in their group. We skipped all lines (which were HUGE), received our headsets and start... More

Wonderful and very informative guides with Roberta and Barbara. One of our guides has her PhD and the other a Masters in ancient studies/art and they were incredible. Lots of info, great direction and movement through the ruins, and delightful, friendly guides. Discussed the right amount of history, art, culture, archaeology. I've used guides all over the world and these... More

Our private guide, Lara, took us to see the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Forum. She was absolutely superb. She was knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions, but relaxed and friendly. We couldn't have had a nicer experience. Two of us had already visited these sights but it was the first time for the other two. The... More

Firstly, the Vatican is definitely something you need a guide for, as it is so vast and expansive, you couldn't possibly do it by yourself, and absorb all the information. Viera was the most wonderful guide. She took us safely through the crowds of people swarming through the Vatican and kept us well informed, whilst maintaining a great sense of... More

It exceeded all expectations! Our tour guide, Luca Romano, was the best! He was so knowledgable about the Vatican, the Catholic Church and the art work. The way in which he told all the stories made it enjoyable. It was a perfect mix of education and fun! I highly recommend to anyone coming to Rome! Thank you for making our... More

Our group of four had two incredible Private Tours with the wonderful Massimiliano. Firstly, he provided a fantastically insightful tour of the Coliseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and brought alive the history and amazing facts in a manner and way that enthralled us all. We then took the Private Tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and the Basillica... More
