    Vatican Guided Tour
    First time Rome/Vatican. Fast track is a blessing. Vatican capacity is silly. The structure of Enjoy Rome is organized but rushed. You could and maybe should depending on interest level dedicate an entire day to the Vatican grounds. Build up to Sistine is suspenseful, time allotted to Sistine was disappointing. Best recommendation, visit during off season during off hours with knowledgable guide for best experience. That being said, my guide Ilaria was personable and welcoming from the start. Her narrative was informative. Furthermore, I personally enjoyed her Italian accent, which enriched the experience for me. Enjoy Rome facility is conveniently located, offers bathroom, and has drinks available for purchase before you jump into the tour.

    Only OK Tour
    This was our least favorite tour in Italy. The guides did not compare with others we had in other archaeological places, and we were sorry to have used up a day better spent in Rome.

    Excellent tour and even better guide (Ilaria)!
    Ilaria was an excellent guide - she was incredibly passionate about the locations and took the time to explain the background of everything we saw. Despite the heatwave, we had a great time. Bring a water bottle or spend the €2 on a bottle from a street vendor and refill at the fountains on the Via Sacra!

    Highly recommend! Laura is the best
    Laura was such a great tour guide with an unbelievable knowledge of Roman history and a passion to match. Tickets and entry to the Colosseum is overwhelming but the tour group and Laura made it simple. Thanks for a great afternoon!

    We highly Recommend this Tour!
    We had an amazing tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill! Our guide, Ilaria, is a native of Rome, and revealed secrets that only locals know. She had passion and immense knowledge of the sites we toured. She was easy to understand, and did a good job of keeping our group together in the most crowded spaces in Rome. We were able to take amazing photos, and learn so much about Rome. We will treasure our memories forever!

    Excellent Guided Tour
    Had an excellent tour today with Lilia from Moldova. She was very knowledgeable and knew how to navigate the crowded Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel very well. She followed all of the rules and encouraged us to do the same. She gave us very helpful tips for navigating St. Paul's Basilica as well. We would have been lost and overwhelmed without her.

    Great tour + tour guide!
    Lilia was an incredible tour guide and provided so much information that we never would have known if we went by ourselves. She made sure to show us all the important highlights and answered our questions thoroughly!

    Book at Own Risk, No guarantee of service, tour timings may change, without refund
    Operator updated in Whatsapp late evening, 2 day prior to the skip the line experience that in the name of Upgrade our Tour was shifted from morning 9am to afternoon 1430hrs. We had already planned our vacation long back and booked this tour with another one of Vatican for afternoon at 1400hrs. Now our tours were clashing and the Operator rather than empathising, strictly denied of the any possible timing in morning or even denied refunds. Later Viator intervened with refund the tour.

One of the worst tour companies i've ever worked with! They will change your private tour to a group tour and only refund the money after you BEG them constantly for weeks. Their guides can also be sub-par. I unfortunately took two tours with this company the first week of May. The first tour was the night tour of the Vatican Museums , I highly recommend getting tickets to the Vatican at night to explore it crowd free, but NOT with this tour company. The enjoyrome guide spent more than an hour talking OUTSIDE the museum, so by the time we got in, we were rushing around all the famous highlights to see everything before the museum closed. We skipped a lot of famous parts of the Vatican Museum. For the amount of money the tour costs, it’s a shame we didn't see more of the Vatican Museums. We barley got into the Sistine Chapel before it closed. A better tour guide would have a much better management of time.

The next day we did the Gladiator Gate tour, we were booked on a semi-private spanish tour and the company told me that we had to be changed to a large (40+) spanish group tour. The guide was fine and it was cool to see the colliseum, but being in such a large group in an extremely crowded tourist site was chaotic and I feel like I missed a lot of information that I would have gotten with the smaller group that I paid for. The company told me that there was no problem to change the tour, as they would have a partial refund for me. However I had to send emails, called and written messages begging for them to respond before they finally responded to me to return the money. I do NOT recommend this company. I only give them 2 stars because they finally refunded the money and our guide the day of the colosseum did a good job of managing such a large crowd. Book with any other company!
