Grant provided an educated, knowledgeable tour of the inside of the Vatican and it's treasures. We found him humourous and he encouraged questions from the group as we moved through the many corridors and rooms full of history and art. By not joining the tour we would have stumbled our way through without fully appreciating what the Vatican had to... More

We took a tour of the Vatican with this company when someone stopped us near St. Peter’s Square and told us it was the way to get in without having to queue for a very long time. It certainly enabled us to bypass the very long line to get in. Our guide was called Grant. He certainly knew a lot... More

We were met by an extremely personable young man named Angelo. He gave us an inside view of the Vatican. As a native of Rome, an art historian, an actor. He used all his talents to make this tour a tremendous and knowledgeable tour. His presentation was enhanced by modern technology. Any of his tours can be a wonderful fun-filled... More

We arrived by taxi from the train station to be prospected by a rep of What a life Tours at the Vatican City taxi rank. I'm sure there are other tours but they were very polite and courteous in their approach to us. Our guide for the day was Girant who was funny, well I laughed and very knowledgable. We... More

We did the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel tour with Angelo, and it was amazing! We met at the tour offices, which are just steps away from the Vatican and left promptly. The tour allows you to skip the line, which was great considering it was quite a scorcher. Once in, our tour guide, Angelo kept us informed, engaged, and... More

When I came to Rome I wasn't sure wasn't sure about taking a guide tour. I must say it was an incredible tour and I'm glad I took it. We had an amazing guide called Daniela Senise. The moment she started talking I decided to take the whole tour. She was the best!! personable and interesting. I highly recommend it!!

This tour to the Vatican took 2 and a half hours but it flew by. Our tour guide Grant was informative and pretty funny as well. We skipped all the huge line ups and learned so much about each sight even before we arrived there. The tour was very organized and interesting. I'm so glad we decided to take a... More

Hey Samantha C! Wonderful review for Grant, you do learn a lot on our Vatican tour, and Grant is an extremely knowledgeable guide (don't you sometimes wonder where they put all of the information?) with such a great reference to modern day culture.
