On the advice of friends we booked two Presto tours during our recent stay in Rome. On one day the Colosseum and Forum tour and then on the next the Vatican tour. Both were three hour tours in small groups. For the Colosseum and Forum tour our guide was Ettore and the group was only around six people, very easy and intimate. Ettore was a great guide, a local with very good English and a lot of information and love for his subject. We enjoyed our time with him immensely and loved the tour. The next day we had Stuart as our guide and again it was a great day. He knew his subject well and presented it to us in an easy and interesting manner. This group was larger and so we had the small wireless headphones - a necessity in the crush of the Vatican at times! Presto were reasonably priced and great value for money and I'd use them again any day. Ettore was especially good at making us feel what it would have been like to be there in the ancient times. Recommended.

We had a great tour of thr Vatican with Eleana. The group had at 12 members compared to others that I saw of approx. 50. Eleana was very knowledgable abiut the works of art, the artists, the popes and the history of the Vatican. We thourghly enjoyed ourselves and felt we were both educated and looked after. Thank you Eleana,

We booked a 3 hour Presto Tour before leaving on our trip on the recommendation of friends who had travelled the month previously. We booked a private tour as we had children and wanted to go at our own/their pace. Our Italian guide, Dario spoke with broken English but we understood him and it was fantastic. He knew so much about the Vatican and was extremely good with the boys, constantly speaking to them and answering questions. It was the only way we would/could have gone to the Vatican with kids. When we left the queues to get in were so long we couldn't see the end of the line.

We pre-booked a 3 hour Vatican Tour with Prest Tours who we found through the Vatican website.
The tour includes priority entrance to the Vatican Museums, Cistine Chapel and St. Peter's.
Our tour guide was Ryan,from the U.S.A originally but several years in Italy and he certainly knew his stuff.
We were each equipped with a wireless receiver that he spoke to us through and it made for easy listening and the ability to wander while he kept on talking.
A great tour, only 6 of us, that we would thoroughly recommend and hopefully you will get Ryan.
