We had a lovely tour with a woman. Maximus, an Irish man meets you at the beginning of the tour with the tour guide to ensure everything runs smoothly and then leaves when the tour begins. Our tour guide was very good at explaining everything about the Vatican and had a wealth of knowledge to hand. You could ask questions... More

We just completed a tour with Christina. We had the good fortune to be the sole recipients of her expertise as no one else had signed up for that time. She devoted almost 3 hours, providing us with interesting facts and stories. She demonstrated depth of the subject, as well as respect for the history she shared. We received excellent... More

This was a wonderful private tour that I would highly recommend! Our guide ( I think her name was Mikaela, sorry) was excellent! She was so knowledgeable and personable. We learned so much more about the Vatican Museums than if we had attempted to do it on our own. The experience will never be forgotten.

This tour is the most effective way to see the highlights of the Vatican museums. Our guide was very knowledgeable and thanks to him, I understood more about the artworks and history presented in the museum. We went there on a Tuesday afternoon so it was not so crowded.

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.
