My husband, cousin and I enjoyed 2 days of touring in Rome with Vatican Tour Company, and all of the tours were excellent, especially the tours of the Vatican & Sistine Chapel and the Colosseum & Forum. The guides were knowledgeable and informative but did not overwhelm us with information. They helped us avoid long lines and helped us see the most important sites. Also, Vatican Tour Company arranged all transportation for us, including picking us up at our hotel and dropping us off at restaurants and special locations. The drivers were always on time and extremely pleasant. We would definitely recommend Vatican Tour Company if you have limited time in Rome and hope to see the major sites.

Vatican Tour Company set up three different tours for us and every one was worth the money. Guide was even able to make sure our last day in Rome was great while dodging around half the city being shut down for the G20 (and got to have lunch at a great restaurant next to an ancient temple overlooking a valley with waterfalls). I know many people prefer to just see the sights on their own, but there's no way to really get all the insight that can be provided by their guides without spending years teaching yourself. Worth every penny, and also saved us hours of waiting in line.

I have now had the opportunity to use Vatican Tours Company (www.vaticantourcompany.com) on two different occasions. The first was back in August 2007 and the second just recently in July 2022. Both time it was an outstanding experience and would highly recommend them.
The first time I and my wife was on a cruise with 5 other couples and had waited to long to book the tours, off the ship we wanted, and they were all booked. That was the best thing that could have happened to the group. We booked all of our tours with Vatican Tour Company and they were able to meet us at a number of ports we were visiting throughout Italy for much less than those off the ship. For example, in Rome, on our private tour we saw the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, Basilica of St Peter, Trev Fountain, Pantheon, Venice Square, Colosseum, Circus Maximus, and the Secret Keyhole for not much more than the cruise ship wanted for just the Vatican Museum. Also it was private, just the 12 of us, not a bus full of tourists. It was not a simple drive by either. We stopped and had tickets for entry where needed. Although they no longer give tours at many of the ports I visited in 2007, they still offered a Rome tour when I return on a cruise in July 2022. Again it was a very private tour for just 6 of us at an unbelievable price for all we were able to see when compared to the single site tour off the ship. Naturally I would assume when you spend the time and money for a once in a lifetime trip, you will want to see as much as possible.
Because they offer a custom tour experience based to the sites you wish to see, I would suggest you contact them before your trip to Italy (bookings@vaticantourcompany.com). I guarantee it will be worth your time contacting them for a quote.

Thank you Robert and we especially appreciate your feedback because we specialise and take so much pleasure in weaving together these types of made to measure tours. All we need are dates, areas of interest and location(s) to block out an itinerary. The earlier the better (you booked your made to measure tour almost a year in advance!) So next time you come we can move to the B list of things to see, with other members of your familly and friends. Really appreciate the feedback, and your flexibility in regards to the bad bits (traffic:) luckily the driver Matteo's readjusted synchronicity paid off.

We did the Rome via golf cart tour. In short, it was fantastic! Our tour guide Mario was really fun and informative, kept things interesting. The golf cart was an amazing mode of transport, great unobstructed view at a good pace. Obviously warmish weather is ideal, but either way, myself and the Mrs had an epic time. Thanks guys.

We did the pantheon tour, catacombs, Vatican and another private tour to different parts within Rome. Tour guide Sev was very professional, knowledgeable and punctual. We learned a lot from him and enjoyed the tour. He’s also an archeology professor, which was a huge plus for us.

See you again next time with your friends: Enjoyed having you all on the journey. Rome is so beautifully empty. Villa Borghese next time would be good, with a little Capuchin crypt thrown in.... always here for you, Antony

We highly recommend VTC!!

We visited over the 4th of July weekend and contacted Antony for a tour around Rome. Meaning we wanted a full day packed with everything we could see and learn. Nonetheless, Antony prepared an itinerary and delivered as we asked. We saw sooo much and honestly couldn’t have done it without them. We also had our two little ones with us a 4 year old and an 8 month old. Antony provided the carseats (lifesaver since we had traveled by train to Rome) A van with Sammy as our driver and Antony himself as our tour guide. They’re the perfect duo, funny, kind, understanding and very accommodating to my kids. We will definitely be using them again. We can’t wait to plan a second trip to Rome and visit places they recommended.

We were stood looking at Pantheon and were approached by James who suggested a tour. We gave it a try and it was worth every second. Job was knowledgeable, funny and made the tour so interesting. We decided to book another tour for the following day. We were picked up by Sammy and spent a fascinating few hours travelling around Rome seeing so much more than we would have been able to do alone, whilst telling us about the history. Really personable man and again, so knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend this company and we would have booked the Vatican tour too if we hadn’t already booked with someone else.

There are so many Romes to see... it always depends on who you see them with :) Thanks for the feedback.

Alan was a great driver, and very informative. He also went out of his way a couple times to show us little hidden gems throughout our tour. Before dropping us off at the train station he took us to an amazing restaurant to try before leaving.

Alan is often quoted to be the purveyor of real organic experiences. It's not about the sights, Rome has many, and usually everyone wants to see the same ones, it is about who is showing them to you and how. Some people you just can't meet on Zoom. Thank the heavens that not everything is digital.

I did the Pantheon tour first thing in the morning which was very personal and certainly not rushed.

I did the catacombs with Emiliano in the afternoon which took in a number of sights that perhaps you wouldn't see if navigating on your own.

Would certainly recommend using the company if visiting Roma!
