First we were met on the street by a gentleman who had our attention and confidence immediately. Than Angelo took us on our tour. Angelo was great, full of knowledge and humor. He did a great job and kept us together "Diane from California' said he was the Hit of the Trip.

We were lucky enough to have Grant as our tour guide of Vatican city. His knowledge of the history of the Vatican etc was vast. The tour of Vatican City and its museum and gardens lasted 3 hours with Grant giving a continuous commentary, with great knowledge and humour. So much better than listening to an audio guide.

Welcome to Tripadvisor Kiran96! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the tour with Grant around the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel, you are absolutely right there are many advantages to a guided tour:) Skipping the infamous line, learning about the art pieces whist standing in front of them, and most importantly finding out where the locals eat YUMMY:)...

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour through the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel with Grant. An amazing amount of information with a great sense of humor thrown in. We would definitely choose this company and Grant to tour again.
