“Excellent,entertaining small group tour”

I guess we lucked out, there were only three other people on our tour of the Forum and Coliseum. Daniella was charming and exceptionally well-read, and the picture of gracious with our daughter, who peppered her with questions.

“Fantastic! Can't recommend highly enough.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

A couple of days ago my boyfriend and I visited the Vatican with Maximus tours. Our guide was fantastic, not just extremely knowledgable but also fun. Didn't feel at all like being in a educational lecture which some tours can. Wonderful tour exactly what you want, all the information you need plus lots of interesting extra titbits. A friendly, informal guide who was able to answer any questions and obviously not only knew exactly what she was talking about but was interested her self.
If you are looking for a Vatican tour take this one, you won't be disappointed!

“Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

An excellent tour of the Vatican Museum and St Peter's Basilica. Our guide (could have been Leah) was very helpful, very informative. As well as my husband and myself there were only 5 others on the tour which made it very personal. The tour began at the Vatican Museum, through the Sistine Chapel and then into the Basilica. Throughout, the guide was very precise, clear and informative, all seemingly done without any notes for over 3 hours. She was very knowledgable and seemed genuinely interested in passing on her apparent love of her subject. All in all it was an excellent visit and one to be recommended as on your own you would miss so much. Excellent value.

“Excellent tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

They could make the meeting point more evident as there are several other tour guides and and ticket touts at the same place and I heard there are 'cheaper' tours available but overall felt the tour was enlightening and worth doing.

“Super tour with expert guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We used Maximus Tours just after Xmas and had a truely excellent tour around The Vatican and St. Peters. As instructed we met adjacent to the main entrance and went through the various check-points without hassle. The tour asted just over 3 hours and was planned to perfection by our guide, Leah, who knew everything about everything. Even when asked the seemingly most obscure questions she responded with clear, accurate answers immediately. Very impressive, highly recommend.
