      First time to Vatican City - mother daughter trip!
      Francesco was an excellent guide for our first trip to the Vatican City! He certainly knew how to read his audience and the full day flew by. I highly recommend a private tour, however I’m sure the group tours are equally magnificent!

      Grazie Francesco
      We were in Rome for a week and organised three tours during our stay. Our guide for each was Francesco and he was able to entertain and educate us in equal measure, adding considerably to our enjoyment of the trip. Highly recommended!

      Best tour guide ever!
      Enjoyed the private tour of the Vatican+ Our tour guide, Claudia, was kind, intelligent, and fun! She knew answers to our many and varied questions and encouraged us to keep questioning! She showed a genuine interest in our family and enthusiastically shared her love of Italy.

      Comprehensive
      Skipping the line makes logistics much easier. Having a guide makes it much better. Our guide was knowledgeable and pointed out much we might have missed. It’s so opulent and full of history and art that the place it can be overwhelming. Recommend this be your only activity that day. Your brain will be done lol!!

      Great
      With its massive facade and breathtaking views, this is the most beautiful and striking sight. The altar and nave include elaborate decorations.

      The best tour of the Vatican with Francesco!!
      Francesco was an excellent guide! He was very knowledgeable about all things relating to the Vatican. He was impressively kind and able to get us through the crowds seamlessly. Francesco had many wonderful qualities but the thing I appreciated most about him was his passion for his work. I could really tell he enjoyed his job. I will definitely recommend him to family and friends. Thanks so much Francesco. PS He deserves a raise!!

    This tour was cancelled just hours before it was scheduled to begin. We had already left our hotel to travel to Vatican City. After waiting at the meeting spot for 30 minutes, a very kind tour guide from another company called this company to ask where they were. It was then that we were told it was cancelled. They did not offer any alternatives.

    Claudia was great! She met us promptly at the entrance and we proceeded right in skipping the very long lines. As it turned out, we had Claudia to ourselves for a private tour (not expected). She was very knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour and level of detail for our interest. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed.

    Our tour of the Vatican was a wonderful experience. Our guide Cristiana was outstanding. She was great fun to be with, provided great insight and details for all parts of the museums' history, art, sculpture, and even papal politics. She can clearly provide information in as much detail as you can absorb. My wife has early onset Alzheimer's and Cristiana made a point to be sensitive to her pace and the things that interested her.....much appreciated by us. We would certainly engage Tours of the Vatican and Cristiana again on a future visit.

    We loved this tour it was way better than expected. Our guide Thomas was incredibly well informed and very engaging, there was nothing he didn't know!!

    We skipped all the queues and gained such a good understanding of this amazing place thanks to Thomas. It was great being in a small group as we could ask all our questions at any point.

    If I could do this tour again I would. Loved it.

    Thanks for a great day. 😁

    Maria our guide was perfect. The meet and greet place was perfect. In our group was 8 people 2 were kiwis same as us , Maria’s English was excellent which was great! Maria’s knowledge was endless - unfortunately you can’t avoid the crowds - but being in a small group with Maria was the bee’s knee’s - we could hear her without wearing the ear pieces and looking at groups with 25 or more - aghhh !! Thoroughly recommend 5 stars from us. 😊

    Our family of 8 had the pleasure of having Francesco as our tour guide. He was absolutely amazing. Out of the 8 in our group, we had (2) young children, 6 years & 9 years. He kept the kids wanting to learn more and look for pictures in the Vatican that he taught us about before entering. Never did the kids complain, they wanted to hear more.... Francesco kept everyone fascinated by facts and taught us so much about the Vatican, Sistine Chapel & the Basilica. During our trip to Italy we had a total of (4) tours with different tour companies... Our entire group agrees that this tour was the best of our trip, with the best guide! We are so thankful we got paired with our guide, he was fantastic! A+++ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Say no more! The kids loved it. Francesco was our guide and engaged the kids at their level, with “spotting” items in different areas. Plus numerous historical stories and info. Beats reading a guide book and having ones nose down in that book most of the time!

    Excellent tour! We skipped the very long lines (and we visited off season, and still the lines were very long!) Our guide, Laura, was amazing. Just the right amount of information, interesting, and very pleasant. We had a great time, and will use this tour again when we return in the spring!! Highly recommend.
