My tour was on July 9, with I think her name is Karin, not positively sure. But she was amazing, answered all our questions, asked us what areas we would like to see. She speaks Spanish, Italian, English and her native language. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend her for anyone who wants to thoroughly enjoy seeing the Vatican.

While we aren't unseasoned travelers, it is always nice to be shown around. We had limited time in Rome and decided to enlist the services of Linda's guides. We were met promptly and were guided around the Vatican and the Colliseum efficiently. The guides told us age appropriate stories (we had kids in our group between ages of 8 and 14) and pointed out interesting little facts about the sites and history of Rome and the Romans.

While we could have seen the sights on our own and could have read about them in the books sold at the many souvenir stands around the attractions, we were very happy with the guides.

We took the tour of the Vatican with Caternia. This tour was absolutely wonderful and what an amazing experience. The lines for people without reservations or bookings was at least 1/4 mile long. With our tour we met our guide at the front door, skipped everyone in line and walked right in. The historical knowledge of our tour guide was amazing. She knew all of the tricks of passing the huge crowds and going directly to where we needed to. She also, knew exactly how to get to the major things you want to see rather than getting lost or wasting time asking for directions; the Vatican is HUGE. We cannot recommend it enough; it will make your experience so much more enjoyable and request Caternia if possible! :)

I have never written a review on trip advisor before, but our private "Vatican and Sistine Chapel Tour" was so great, that I had to write about it. Francesca was a wonderful tour guide. She had vast knowledge about the area, and highlighted her explanations to us with pictures on her iPad. This was particularly awesome, because she was able to zoom in on different parts of the Sistine Chapel to show us important parts and explain the stories behind them before we went in to the Chapel itself. I can't speak highly enough of what a great morning we had with her.

Linda, with whom you communicate to set up the tour was prompt and helpful. I was a bit weary ,having never booked a tour over the internet based solely on trip advisor recommendations, but this was a winner. You will not be disappointed.

We are a family of 4 (2adults and 2 kids age 13 and 17). we were taken tousands of years back in times with our guide, Vera. She went through the history of Colosserum and Forum Romanum. It was just plain perfect. She had the ability to handle both the adults and the youngsters which gave us all a very good guided tour.
