This tour was excellent! Our tour guide Tatiana was so knowledgeable about the art/history in the Vatican museums that she made it come to life. She's clearly passionate about her job and is not simply going through the motions. She easily navigated the crowds, gave our group time to rest when needed and provided visual aids for the Vatican City... More

My husband and I booked this tour because we figured it was the best way to visit the Sistine Chapel. Due to our personal schedule, we also needed an afternoon tour. We were delighted with our tour guide, Tatiana. She is very knowledgeable about the art and history of the Vatican museum and the Sistine Chapel. She worked so hard... More

Emma was a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who made a special effort to make sure we could see as much as possible. This meant the tour went on longer than intended but I dont think anyone minded as we got our money's worth.

Maximus only had 15 people on the Vatican Highlights tour. The young guide was so smart, informative and it was a great tour. 2 problems. 20,000 people visit the Vatican a DAY and I think 10,000 were in front and 10,000 behind. We traveled in July and that is one of the problems everything is so crowded. But I wouldn't... More

Our tout guide was Kristiana who was excellent. She was very informative and really brought the history alive. I would recommend the Maximus tour, and compliment Kristiana on her professionalism. She was brilliant.

Kudos to Shane at Maximus Tours!! We wanted to give our highest praise and thanks to Shane, our tour guide at the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel tour on July 9, 2014. His knowledge and delivery during the tour were nothing short of amazing. Without Shane's expertise and abundant commentary, our experience would not have been as great as it... More

We had a great tour with Tatiana. Even though there were a lot of people and many other tour groups she made us feel as if we were the only ones there. She is informative, energetic, friendly and allowed us to have a fun and interesting tour. Maximus tours was definitely worth the money.

She provided excellent information about the Vatican and also Roma history. I highly recommend Maximus Tours and especially if you are able to get Kristiana. Her English was also very... More

This was the only tour we took in Rome and we was glad we did, you skip the lines and walk straight in. Our guide Shane was good and spoke clearly with a bit of humour, you don't get to see all of the museum but that would be impossible as it is so large but you do have the... More
