Our guides for both the Vatican City (Katia) and Ancient Rome/Coloseum (Vanessa) were PHENOMENAL. Both had deep backgrounds in history and one was an archeologist. They made our time enjoyable and efficient by adding so much depth to the information they shared and by guiding us to the most important sites. Hands down -- taking these tours was the best...

We were a group of 4 couples in our 50s and 60s. We were all very happy with the Vatican and Coliseum tours! It was very informative and not to intense

We did the Rome Walking Tour and the Vatican. Both tours were unbelievable. Only 4 people in each tour made them feel like exclusive private tours. We learned history through storytelling which allowed us to imagine being there. Guides encouraged questions and offered advice on how to enjoy the rest of our holiday. I definitely recommend Artviva to everyone.

All our tours were small groups, so easy to ask questions. Personal headsets made it easy to hear, tune out noise from all other tours/people around us. Learned a lot.

We drove in from Greve just for this walking tour. Our Guide Ms Brenda was simply superb. She managed to make the Uffizi Gallery come alive by showing us the best works and showing us the evolution of art through the 1800s. Also she showed us views of the Ponte Vecchio, Vasari Corridor and a nearby castle where Kim Kardashian... More

We took the tour of Vatican/St. Pauls and the Sistine Chapel. The guide Cindy was amazing! (We also took one in Florence and it was terrific as well!) Very fun, informative, and fast paced, nothing dull about this one! Great combination of historic and a few fun facts thrown in. Fast-paced, so no waiting around. Cindy also took a great... More

I highly recommend the walking tours with Artviva. We had registered online for the Florence in One Glorious Day tour, which is actually a combination of three separate tours: Original Florence Walk, Masterpieces of the Uffizi Gallery, and the Original David Tour - Academia Museum. The tour groups were small and our guides, Brenda and Corinna(sp?), were outstanding. I was... More

My wife and I have just completed the third of our five scheduled tours with Artviva. They have been well worth the money. Our trip to Cinque Terra with only 5 others with our guide Ela, and our driver Massimo, was unbelievable. She was so much fun to spend time with and took care of everything for us. The Florence...

We did two Artviva tours in two days. The Vatican Tour and The Coliseum/Forum Tour. Both were excellent. The length and pacing were good. The guides were knowledgeable and very nice. The group size is perfect. We did two tours in Florence as well. We highly recommend this company.

Tour of the city of Florence, the Academia (David), and the Uffizi. Tours were highly enjoyably (and very informative) and tour guides (Cain and Barbara) were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended, especially if you are trying to hit the highlights of Florence in a single day.
