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! He was very flexible with us and generous with the amount of information he had about history, I also loved how he was so helpful during the tour. He requested a wheel chair for my pregnant friend and... More

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...

This was a very last minute booking and luckily Antony was able to squeeze my fiancé and his brother + girlfriend in for a private tour of the Colosseum! Antony was easy to organise with and the day was flawless. We skipped all of the lines which was worth every penny. He knew so much information about everything that we... More

My partner and i enjoyed a private tour of this maginficent place with Antony on 22/02/2016. His knowledge and ease of providing you with an insight into the collosseum and the forum was second to none! I would whole heartedly recommend that you pay a little extra for this private and personal experience. Amazing....Thank you Antony.
