        Great Tour with Francesco
        Such a great experience having a private tour of the Vatican Francesco was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The evening tour was a lot less crowded than during the day, definitely worth it!

        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!!

        Francesco was an incredible tour guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful… couldn’t have asked for a better guide to show us through The Vatican.

        This Was a Trip Highlight
        This was a trip highlight. Our tour guide, Thomas, was exceptional. There were hoards of people outside the Vatican, but Thomas held up a sign with our name on it and we found him easily. This was a private tour with the 3 of us. Thomas was able to weave us in and out of the crowds and give us an enormous amount of information. His English was excellent. One of our companions wears hearing aids. She had no trouble hearing Thomas throughout the tour. Thomas showed us a book with pictures from the Sistine so when we got inside we'd know what to look for. After visiting the Sistine, we walked through the long porticos where Thomas explained the popes collected many Roman statues. We also saw the rooms of animals, muses and maps. There was so very much to see, but Thomas took us through it in an unhurried way. Later, we saw two of the Raphael Rooms. And the Borge Room below. Then, we went inside St. Peter's where Thomas helped us see the amazing Bernini alters and Michelangelo's Pieta. We cannot recommend this tour high enough. I chose it because of the raving reviews on Trip Advisor and I am glad I did.

      This was absolutely the best tour I have ever had the pleasure to experience. Francisco explained everything before we began and was extremely knowledgeable about everything. This is the only way to experience Rome.
