This was my first time in Rome, my boyfriend's 4th, and both of us enjoyed this tremendously. Tour guide Francesca was incredibly informative and so sweet. She made the entire experience so enjoyable and we had the best time. Best money we spent the entire trip!

Whether you know nothing about the Vatican or have been there before, this private tour is great. You get to skip the disgustingly long line out front and go straight in. You can choose what parts of the Vatican to spend more or less time at. You can skip the Vatican gardens and head straight to the museum or take a tour of the Egyptian wing. WHATEVER you want to do, the guide will customize it to your liking.

Francesca was so passionate about her job and you could tell how much she loved doing it. It was also great because we had our very own photographer. :) The guides don't mind taking pictures of your group.

I could go on forever about how wonderful this experience was but you just need to go experience it for yourself. I promise you it will be the best money you spend on the trip. Worth every penny! Thank you Francesca for being an amazing tour guide!

If you goto the Vatican and Vatican city. You must use Rafael from Travelive tour. He takes time to explain everything and allows you to really understand and appreciate he beauty you are witnessing

We did this as an early morning "beat the bulk of the people" tour which started at 7.30am, our tour guide, Cinzia, was waiting at the start point and was a very friendly local. What knowledge, she knew to head straight to the Sistene Chapel, which was almost empty of people, then do the rest of the tour, which much later passed back through a packed Sistene, knowledge is everything. We really enjoyed the tour and the amount of information given, would recommend this tour and tour guide for sure

Vatican City is a must-see in Rome, but it can be extremely daunting, without the right guidance.

My wife and I were in Rome for our honeymoon and decided to book a professional guide to see the holiest of places. We were rewarded with an amazing visit, courtesy of our professional guide, Niccolo. Young and highly energetic, Niccolo brought the wonders of the Vatican to life with his knowledge and obvious passion for his work.

As we walked through the throngs of people, I couldn't help but notice the herds of people being led around by those cheap group tours. Overhearing some of their canned presentations, I was appreciative that we had Niccolo's vast knowledge at our disposal. We were able to focus on what interested us and skip over what did not.

Niccolo used his professional tour guide super powers to get us through some crowded areas, getting us out of the really dull, crammed parts of the Vatican.

Our only regret is that we did not have quite enough euro to properly tip him, so we're hoping that this review is helpful enough that it drives business his way.

If you are lucky enough to spend time in Rome and especially Vatican City, DON'T be CHEAP! Spend the money on a proper guide (get Niccolo!) and your time will be well spent.

We were in Rome and decided to go to Vatican city with a private tour . We took our 8 and 12 years old boys with us. We asked the hotel to arrange a private no-queue tour and had requested for an experienced guide.
Daniela Aroyo was our guide. She was very knowledgeable and a fantastic storyteller.the four of us enjoyed the tour very much. There was not a single dull moment during the 5 hours of the tour!!
We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to have an experience of a life time at Vatican city.Check out at www.eyesaframe.com
