I really enjoyed the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel tour with Grant. He was very informative and it feels as he has a genuine interest for history and the people he guides. Grant gave us a splendid tour with his knowledge, pop quiz and humorous way. I was sad when the tour had to end.

It's hard not to have an amazing time when the subject of the tour was the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. But our tour guide Carlotta brought so much to the tour that made it a very special visit. We would not hesitate to use What a Life Tours again when we return to Rome.

I recently travelled to Rome with friends and when we arrived at the Vatican we were approached by What a Life tours. We were a bit sceptical but joined the tour guide, Grant, who chatted to the group for over 1/2 hour before we went to the office to pay. In this initial chat it was obvious that he was... More

I have been on many tours but this had to be the best. Our Guide (Grant) was informative, appropriately humorous and very approachable. He brought the past back in to the present. Well done to him and the company

We had an amazing time with Marcello. He was extremely knowledgeable and even went out of his way to ask the Swiss Guard a question for us after the tour was over. We did the early morning tour and were very glad we did. He made sure we got a good look at everything we really wanted to see before... More

She constantly made sure her group was all together and nobody was left behind. She also answered all the questions we had. I would recommend this... More

Took a tour with Grant he was very knowledgeable with a good mixture of seriousness and humor without being irreverent . Couldn't believe he was born 5 miles from where my wife and I live an unexpected pleasure.
