We did the 7:30am tour and my fiance and I lucked out and it was just us and tour guide! Eugenia was our tour guide and she was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable and you could tell she had a genuine love and passion for her job. The Vatican is so full of information I would have been completely lost... More

Antony is an excellent tour guide, highly recommended! We only had 2 full days to spend in Rome so we booked tours of the Vatican Museums/Sistine Chapel/Basilica and The Colosseum with VTC and it was worth the extra Euros. You get to skip the long lines to buy tickets and you learn a lot in such a short time.

What a passion for her job. I have been on a lot of tours but this was perhaps the best tour guide ever. One always wonders if it is worth booking a tour especially when getting approached by all the guides at the entrance In this case WORTH IT! In addition to the great service from Eugenia we would have... More

"I did the tour with my two kids and it was a great experience. Our guide Eugenia, proved to be very knowledgeable.. As it is prohibited to talk inside the Sistine chapel, she used a state of the art digital board to explain all the features of the paintings, especially for the last judgement, as some characters painted by Michelangelo...

We had an awesome tour of the Vatican with Manuela from the Vatican Tour Company. We got into the Vatican Museum early and before the public which enabled us to see the Sistine Chapel and many other parts before the crowds arrived. Manuela was so knowledgable and full of interesting little facts about everything. You could tell that she was... More

What an outstanding tour! I booked the Vatican Tour for 9 family members and the Vatican Tour Company contact, Antony, was absolutely great in assuring we all got organized and transported to the Vatican to meet our tour guide, Michael. Michael is both of wealth of information and funny - he made sure to engage our youngest nephew (9 years... More

A friend recommended this tour company to me and I couldn't have been any happier with our experience. Reservations are easily done on line and Antony even called me before we left to firm up the days and tours. We took 3 tours with them and had a great time. Antony is lots of fun so we had a lot...

My husband and I booked the Vatican tour online from the UK. Antony was very professional & helpful before the tour. We met him on the morning of the tour & he couldn't have been more friendly. Our guide for the tour of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's was Luigi. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, passionate & hilarious.... More

Excellent tour of the Vatican, museum, and St. Peter's by Chiarra. Great information regarding the history, art, archeology, and relevant socio-economic relationships to what we were seeing. Antony was extremely professional and organized, and we really appreciated working with him. DEFINITE MUST DO when in Rome and Vatican Tour Company was the way to go. We had a small group... More
