Would recommend Maximus tours and Christina as tour guide. Even though it is hard to follow all the popes she is mentioning, the tour is great. A lot of history and she was terrific and enjoyed telling the group about all the history. We were a small group of 10 people and used about 2,5 hrs on the tour. I... More

This tour was the highlight of my Rome trip & well worth every euro. Our guide Cristiana was phenomenal ; so much information & history brought the exhibits alive. Her enthusiasm was contagious & I came out of the museum feeling that I had the best experience possible & been shown the most relevant pieces, given the time scale &... More

Our guide, Christiane speaks English very well and is very knowledgeable. We had about 15 people in our tour, and everyone had good questions. This was the only guided tour we took during our week long trip in Italy and I'm glad that we did this one. Vatican City is very crowded, but we skipped the lines with this guided... More

We were recommended to pre- book a Vatican tour by friends and this was the right decision. The next challenge is "Which One?". I would definitely recommend Maximus Vatican Highlights Tour. There were only 16 people in our group and our guide was an art historian, Michela,who clearly loves hr work. We had an excellent and insightful tour of the... More

Whether you book with Maximus or not, a guided tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel are totally necessary and worth the cost. Our guide, Christiane, was not a native English speaker, but by far the best guide we've had in Italy. She was easy to understand, informative, and hit highlights of the Vatican Museum - which is huge! The... More

Went to Italy in 2010 and I booked with this company to see the Vatican Museum. My main reason to book with this tour company, because it was the most affordable and they were offering a spring sale :D I didn't have much expectation going in; but honestly I was blown away by the tour! Definitely a major highlight o... More

On our first day in Rome, me and my friends attempted to go into Vatican City without a tour guide and let's just say it didn't go well. We spent most of our time wandering aimlessly amongst beautiful art, arguing about the best way to get to the Sisteen chapel. The following day we agreed to just get a tour... More

I enjoyed this tour of the Vatican and I found the guide around the Vatican Museum invaluable in explaining many of the sites. However, I think particularly with two young children, I found the tour a bit slow in parts and felt that our tour guide lingered a bit too long on areas of more academic than general interest. Otherwise... More

Great service from start to finish. I accidentally booked for the wrong day and was able to change to the following one with no problems. Pick-up is convenient to the entrance and you get to skip the huge queues to get into the Vatican Museums. Our guide was friendly, patient and above all very knowledgeable. She was happy to answer...
