As a working archaeologist, our guide, Tomasso “Tom” was incredibly well informed and knowledgeable. He also made the tour for our family engaging and fun. He really engaged with both our children (16 and 9 years) and their areas of interest such as the Roman mythology. He sent the younger one on treasure hunts - who knew there were chihuahuas in paintings in the Sistine chapel? We all agreed it was a highlight of Rome and the depth of information and ease off access made it well worth the price for a private tour. I recommended the tour to my sister whose family also enjoyed it. Thank you!

Our guide Marco met us on right on time for our 2PM tour and casually led us through the throngs of visitors to enter the Vatican Museums. He engaged my 6 year old boys from the first moment by talking to them directly, telling the stories depicted in the artwork and challenging them to answer questions in a fun way.

He started before we even began our trek through the halls of the museum by sitting down with the boys and taking them through the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, panel by panel, via a color folding poster in a book so that they would be prepared for what they were about to see. It was very effective because we could not speak once in the chapel so the boys were able to recognize what they had seen in the book and point to things with excitement when we arrived and were staring upwards at Michelagelo's masterpiece.

Every hall was well described and you could tell Marco had many options for places to stop but he was able to tailor the tour to our specific group and what we wanted to see. Highlights included photos he took of our family with the dome of St. Peter's in the background and the shot in the Hall of Maps when we are pointing at our family name on the map. The hall was slammed with people but Marco made sure we got the photo.

We thought the most valuable part of the tour would be skipping the line at the Sistine Chapel (and this did save us an hour of precious time with two eager 6 year olds) but it turned out that our guide was worth every cent and more because he was friendly, genuine and engaging with the adults and the kids. The 3 hour tour was informative and fun...highly recommended! Thanks Marco!

We have 2 children ages 13 & 10 so we booked this tour with them in mind, but Francesco kept all of us entertained for the entire duration of 3 hours at the Vatican & Sistine Chapel. We were so fortunate to have him all to ourselves and he was absolutely the best guide - fun, friendly, helpful and extremely educated on all aspects. He catered the tour to our interests, and also made it engaging for the kids, giving them games & things to look for along the way. We really enjoyed and would highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was wonderful... however, our child was hot, tired, over it from the start.... so we just needed the very abridged version. It's so hard for guides to deviate... even though this was a private tour - just for our family. She was very knowledgable... and the Vatican is amazing!!! however, being a Child's tour- improve skills are necessary.
