My wife and I recently went to Rome for 10 days. Our first time to Rome, so I wanted to do it right. I did a lot of research on tour companies and chose VTC. We set up personal (not group) tours for two separate days (one Vatican City and the other the Forum/Coliseum). I couldn't be happier with our... More

We recently returned home from a fabulous European vacation! One of the smartest things that we did was hiring the Vatican Tour Company while we were in Rome! We were taking a cruise that departed from Rome, but wanted to make the most of our day and a half that we had there prior to boarding our ship. We contacted... More

Thank you. "Made to measure" seems to give the most appreciation on both sides of the experience. It is more complex but then Italy is not Germany nor Switzwerland, so it is always a case of "its not what you do but the way that you do it...", :) Glad you appreciated it! Fond regards from Rome, Antony and Andrea More

Taking the morning tour was well worth it. We had the Sistine Chapel to ourselves to really take in the art without crowds. We then got to tour the rest of the city at a leisurely pace. Eugenie was our guide, and he was great!!!! Funny, knowledgeable, friendly and very patient. We recommend this company, and especially Eugenie.

I was skeptical coordinating all this remotely for a group of 8, we did not want the standard tour, but something of our own making. Their communication was clear and affective. Everyone in my group thanked me for reserving with Vatican Tour Company. Cinzia was our tour guide and she was fantastic and really made the Vatican easy to understand.... More

I am personally relieved and grateful as you booked your Private Colosseum/Ancient world Tour and your Private Vatican & Sistine Chapel tour in January of this year and we had exchanged many emails to make this go to plan. I must congratulate you too, on the specific requests, and your curiosity and I am so happy that your personal choices... More

We hired VTC for three tours in June. Each tour had a different tour guide and each guide was expertly matched for each tour. We were so pleased with the information we received and the tours and tour guides made our trip perfect. We would hire Antony and VTC for our next trip to Italy in a heartbeat.

Very much appreciated, thanks, we try and make all our Private tours as made to measure as possible and when we get information up front this helps a lot to focus on the essential for that specific tour. Guides are also important, because at the end of the day it's the guide who brings all to life, gives the key... More

We booked a tour very last minute with Antony, who answered my early morning call even though he was on his personal vacation at the time!! He was able to get me, my husband and our 1yr old son on a tour the same day and I'm so thankful he did. He booked us with his partner operator and our... More

We are a family of 5 adults (parents & 3 adult children) and booked the VTC tour for the Vatican & Sistine Chapel. We loved our tour guide, Eugene, who was highly knowledgeable and very considerate (even picking out shady spots so we could rest while listening to the information.) Antony came by at the start of the tour to... More

We booked for The Papal Basilica of St. Peter in the Vatican and the Coliseum. We had an amazing tour with Antony!

Thank you. Planning a holiday can be complex, especially when one wants to mix fun and absorb some of the culture. Some prefer one or the other, there should always be a bit of both. The Pantheon and the best ice cream in town for example is a mix, or the Catacombes of Santa Priscilla and a Cremolato (only found... More

This was by far one of the best vacation experiences our family had. We highly recommend Vatican Tour Company for all your Rome Tour needs. Antony Stuart went above and beyond to ensure that we were well taken care of! Our guide, Eugenia, was extremely knowledgeable and was a sheer joy to be around. Thank you!!!

Enjoying the Vatican requires a guide to point out the highlights and to provide the stories behind what you see. I considered myself quite well prepared after studying the history and architecture from many books and videos but I was very happy to have Eugenia's guidance of our group to catch the high points (three hours is a tight time...
