Like many others, I was interested in Vatican Tour Company because of the positive reviews and I am thrilled to be one of the reviewers now adding to the long list of accolades! From the beginning, Antony was very communicative, exchanging emails with me as we planned for our upcoming trip. We easily arranges for two tours, the Colosseum and... More

Recently spent 3 days in Rome and booked 2 tours with VTC. The first was a VIP tour of the Vatican Museuem, Sistine Chapel and St.Peter's Basilica. Andrea, our tour guide, had an amazing amount of knowledge and her "secrets" about the Sistine Chapel were so interesting. The second tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Pallatine Hill with Antony was... More

Andrea definitely made this tour worthwhile!! She was able to not only explain the history of Vatican City & St. Peters Basilica but she was able to recreate the life for us. The way she spoke with such passion made it seem like we were reliving the time there. I would definitely recommend this tour!

We just came back from the Vatican tour with Andrea, she was absolutely great! Instead of going through the Vatican museum, the Sistine chapel, and saint peters church in a Mundane fashion based on dates and facts, she turned the tour into a historical journey!! She was so knowledgeable on art and history, she was able to make the artists... More

Andrea was the best tour guide that we had during our visit at the Vatican City. She had immense knowledge of Vatican and made history come alive through her stories and facts. She truly made the tour a fun time to be in. I recommend having her as a guide!

I was so looking forward to the VIP tour of the Vatican. Our guide (Andrea) was very knowledgeable about Art, but we were more interested in the history. I feel we spent too much time sitting at the beginning of the tour while Andrea went into great detail about the paintings in the Sistine Chapel. We probably spent 45-60 minutes... More

If you just walk up, the line to tour the Vatican is very long. The fastest way to get in and actually understand all the amazing stuff you are seeing is to book a private tour in advance. The Vatican Tour Company did a fantastic job and my teenager said it was the highlight of our trip to Italy. There... More

We recommend the Private tours because they are made to measure and strangely enough people underestimate the need to make choices before they enter. I am happy your teen daughter enjoyed her experience, but let's be honest here, if someone is enthusiastic, and keen, then it does make things easier :) rather than bits and pieces the challenges is to...

We booked two tours with the Vatican Tour Inc.: one for the Colosseum, Forum and Palantine Hill and one for the Vatican. Their websites are very informative and easy to use. I had several questions about their Colosseum tour so I dropped them an email, thinking I'd get a response in a day or two. No less than 15 minutes... More

We booked with the Vatican Tour Company for the Vatican Tour. Communication from Antony before we booked and when we arrived in Rome was excellent. Our Tour Guide on the day was Andrea and she was energetic, informative, knowledgeable and most importantly passionate and made it fun in spite of all the people! Thoroughly recommend this tour company.
