Glad we decided to commit- our guide Grant was knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour was well priced, and we didn't even realize how fortunate we were to skip lines until we actually saw the lines on our way out. Felt we should've brought our kids- they would've appreciated it.

We did the Vatican Group Tour and it was perfect. Angelo was our guide and he was FANTASTIC ! He related a lot of the ideas of the artists and sculptures to modern day examples so people who weren't as familiar could also understand. He was very charismatic as well (looking around at other tor guides from other tour groups,... More

We visited the Vatican, back in the summer, and had a guided tour with Angelo. Angelo was half roman/american, and a fantastic guide. He knew a lot of different, exciting things, and had a great and entertaining way to present just that. He told us about places we could eat afterwards, and respected all of the visitors. A fantastic experience!

Our tour guide was Grant and he was very knowledgeable about the Vatican. He pointed out all the interesting things and told great stories about the history of certain pieces. His explanation of the Sistine Chapel was very good and fascinating! We're not history buffs by any means, but we enjoyed this tour a lot. Also, we had our 4... More

Firstly before I start I must say a big thank you to Joseph for his cooperation & to our "FANTASTIC" tour guide Carlotta. We had an issue at the start of our 5 day holiday in Rome & as such did not have any bank cards on us to book trips or tours but I phoned the company early one... More

Our experience with the Semi-Private Vatican tour was outstanding. Carlotta, our guide, was deeply knowledgable about all the amazing art and history on display, and early hour of the tour had us in the Sistine Chapel with literally only about 8 other people. It was amazing.

We took this tour with Carlotta in November and highly recommend it! We met with Carlotta at 715am before the Vatican opened and did a quick refresher on the art we were about to see. We had the Sistine Chapel to ourselves (and a handful of others) for a half hour before it was open to the public. The 4... More

Hey Cheryl M, Wonderful 1st review:) We adore the Vatican Early Morning, especially since you don't have to share (too much anyway) It is Carlotta's Specialty, and it really is the tour for you if you don't want to feel rushed, and you get to see more of the papal collection, GREAT JOB CARLOTTA:) Maria More
