Laura was our tour guide for the early morning Vatican. That is the only way to see the Vatican!! They get you in very early before... More

We did the private early Vatican tour with Barbara. We got in to the Sistine Chapel before the crowds and had the most wonderful experience. The highlight of our trip!! Barbara was so insightful and knowledgable about the entire Vatican and the Chapel was no exception. She described the works of Michelangelo perfectly and gave us an understanding of each... More

The Private Vatican tour is totally worth the extra money. It was so nice to be the first ones in and experience before the large crowds. The small group Ancient Rome is only worth a quarter of what we paid. There were only six of us but we wore headsets. There might as well have been sixty of us. The... More

We signed up for the Kids and Family tour of ancient Rome (Forum and Colosseum) and also the Kids and Family "Treasure Hunt in the Vatican" tour. It was our whole family (2 adults, and kids aged 14, 10, 8, 4, and 9m baby) for the first, and just me and the youngest three for the second. The tours were... More

Thank you so much for giving us such a great and detailed review! It is a good idea to bring some kind of snack to some of the tours, especially if kids are part of the tour. We will make sure to advertise this fact in later tours, but thank you for bringing it up. We appreciate the wonderful review... More

We were collected at our hotel first and met on arrival by Catia. We became her 'family' for the morning along with three other couples. Catia shared her passion for the Vatican with every word! We would recommend the small group tour so that you can get in early (before the public ) and experience the Vatican in a more... More

My daughter & I went on a 3 1/2 hr tour of the Vatican today (10/5) led by Barbara. She was very efficient in guiding us through the large crowds and conveying a wealth of information regarding the Vatican. We very much enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend Barbara to friends who may be planning a trip to Rome... More

We started at small group tour with Barbara at 7:30 am today. While early, Barbara assured us that beating the crowds would be worth it. She could not have been more right; we were one of the first groups inside the Sistine Chapel and we stayed ahead of the crowds the entire 4 hour tour. Barbara really brought the Vatican... More
