“Great Vatican & St. Peter's Tour with Icon Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2009

My daughter and I had a great tour with Joanna and Icon Tours. Reasonably priced, not too long (3 1/2 hours), and Joanna was very good. She had an amazing fund of knowledge. We were able to bypass the museum lines and go right in. I definitely would recommend Icon Tours and when in Rome I would use them again.

“Worth every penny - like we had our own scholar traveling with us.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2009

We were on a tight schedule and decided last minute to book a private tour for to minimize lines and getting around. Pick ICON upon a friends recommendation. Smartest move we made! Sarah was great. not only did she zip us around with ease, the best part was all of the preparation and knowledge she shared about the art, arch. & history. Main spots we hit were Pantheon, Colleseu, Forum in morning. and Vatican in the afternoon. She knows how to avoid long lines, which quick routes to go by taxis, (like "go to the gelloto place on the corner where the vatican choir goes after practice, not to the vatican!" saved us half an hour in the tax). She explained which pieces of art were most significant and why, told us what to look for in the various works and the stories behind the places. She had a whole 'kit' of drawings and pictures to enhance the history and art lesson She was an absolute gem. We would have totally blown it in Rome on our own. Thanks Sarah, Thanks ICON Tours

“great time with Icon tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2007

My sisters and I recently enjoyed a tour of the Vatican with Icon Tours. We sped through the security and ticket process with our leader Joanne. There were only 14 in our group. She was great. Very informative, and did NOT act as if she had done this zillions of times before. I hope to go back to Rome soon, and would take more of their tours.
