5/5 for Grant 👌. Perfect tour, worth every penny. He made history come to life. If you going to Vatican state, ask for Grant and "What a life tour". You wont be sorry.

Definitely worth getting this tour- if only for the queue jumping and how much quieter it is first thing. However, there was so much more that made the tour so enjoyable. When we got to the meeting place we were offered a croissant and coffee which was very welcome as our hotel didn't start serving breakfast until after we had... More

We had booked a tour of the vatican with What a life tours. Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, we were not able to go so we cancelled. They were so friendly and were so kind to us despite our cancellation. If we ever return to Rome, we will absolutely go on a tour with them again, knowing that I can... More

Like many other tourists we were caught unawares on May 6, 2015 that we would have to wait in line for hours to get in the Vatican Museum, so we decided to go with one of the tours. Lucky for us we were assigned to a tour group guided by Grant. He was very knowledgeable, witty and clearly explained the... More

The Vatican is such a beautiful sight. With this company you get to skip the huge lines. Our tor guide Grant was grand. He knew A LOT about art and added detail and spark to his descriptions. He was fun, easy to listen to and made the hours fly by. Thanks for a great tour!

What a Life Tours was excellent! Our guide was Marcello. He guided our family through the Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Basilica and the Vatican Museums. He was extremely knowledgeable and shared an abundance of information with us! He was very friendly and answered all of our questions. We arrived at the meeting place early and Marcello was already waiting. This... More

Having a tour well documented by our guide Frederica, no line, spare time, was a great moment! Well organized visit, with a lot and interesting information, even the great place of Sixtine chapel we fell like in a station hall, people around didn't care about speaking (absolutely forbidden), it is not guide responsibility, but Vatican have to improve the way...
