This was such a memorable tour and I cannot imagine visiting the Vatican without this personalized and in-depth approach. Tiffany, our tour guide, was exceptionally knowledgeable - on everything from the history and culture to the artwork and "stories" behind the artwork. She offered a witty and fun perspective throughout the tour. I would HIGHLY recommend taking this tour - I don't think you could fully understand or appreciate the Vatican museums or history behind all of it without the tour.
This tour was the absolute highlight of our week-long Italy trip (Florence and Rome). I cannot say enough positive things about the tour itself, or the tour guide, Antonella. We were fortunate to be in a very small group - only one other couple was with us.
As a resident of Florence, Antonella's pride in the city made the tour even more enjoyable. She was passionate about her descriptions of the local sights, architecture and history - and her "insider" tips and stories gave me an even greater appreciation of the beauty and history of Florence.
I would HIGHLY recommend this tour - in hindsight, I would have booked an even longer guided tour. After we parted ways, I missed hearing about the background of the sights, artwork and museum. Antonella is a top-notch tour guide and if we're even in Florence again, will absolutely look her up.
