On October 13, 2014, my wife and I joined a group tour of the Vatican Museums led by Grant. It was a wonderful experience. Grant was clearly an expert in Vatican history. He was able to convey the important facts in an interesting manner, while keeping the tour moving. He did a great job of engaging and relating the history... More

Wonderful Experience. Maria was so helpful in booking this private tour. We were greeted early as promised and was escorted in a private entrance. Carlotta was a great tour guide and explained many details without hesitation. I would book with this company again. Highly recommended!

We were treated to a great tour by Federica Lemme, who educated us with her great knowledge of the Vatican and it's history. Not only that but she assisted us with keeping our kids (4 and 6 years of age) in check and even getting them involved in the tour like holding up the guide stick so people could follow...... More

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Rome and wanted to see the city through a local's eyes, so we decided to book small, guided tours. We were recommended to this company from a family friend who had visited Rome over the summer with his wife and 10 year old son. We booked the Vatican tour, the... More

Our first time, our friends third time at Vatican. We were all so thankful for the great information we received from Grant. His English was perfect and understandable. He is very intelligent, well read and organized. Time flew by since he made every detail so interesting. He is probably the best tour guide we have ever had. What a Life... More

We booked two tours with What A Life Tours - one for the Vatican semi-private Am tour and one for the Colosseum semi-private Am tour. We had Patrick for the Vatican and he did a great job giving us information and history on the Vatican as well as the Sistine chapel. There is so much we would not have understood... More

Giuliano was absolutely AMAZING! It takes a lot for me to say that since its in my nature to feel skeptical and unimpressed. This was my second tour at the Vatican and MUCH rather favored this time in large part to Guiliano. He was really top notch. Great English accent (but native Italian) and I believe this is his genuine... More

We had Angelo as our tour guide for the Vatican tour. The Vatican museum was beautiful, the Sistine Chapel was amazing, while the St. Peter’s Basilica was simply awesome. Angelo showed us his passion as an Italian and the love and knowledge for all these beautiful places. He gave us a great introduction so we knew what we were looking... More

The Vatican museums and St Peter's Basilica are jaw dropping and Angelo makes the tour fantastic. His knowledge of the Vatican, art history and Rome in general is without compare. I have been to the Vatican before but our tour with him was considerably better. His humour and style are great. He is the star of the Vatican and his... More
