We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour. It was so nice to be there before the crowds came in and enjoy the place in peace while we ate our delicious breakfast. Our tour guide, Michaela, was amazing. She was very knowledgeable about the artwork in the museum and made the tour very interesting. We only had 6 people in our group, which was also a plus! Would definitely recommend this tour!
our tour guide was AWESOME and we learned things we could never have known without being on this tour with him. Worth EVERY penny being there early and missing the majority of the crowds!!!!!
Most enjoyable and quite an experience. We also did the small group after hours tour with Laura but also enjoyed this very much and Nicolo was also excellent
Fantastic experience, made even better by our skilled guide..highly recommended..
This tour was well organised; we felt very looked after by Dark Rome Tour Guides. Our guide was Rachael who made us feel welcome and important. Her knowledge and humour was infectious and we found ourselves enthralled by the commentary provided by her. She went the further 'mile' by helping us to sort out another tour as well. The only downside for us was the Vatican was very crowded by the time we got to the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Bascilica, so it was more difficult to appreciate the beauty inside. Seeing the museums and being in there before the crowds was a real bonus. The breakfast was excellent and the venue outstanding. We would highly recommend the Dark Rome Tour, especially Rachael our guide who was outstanding. Thanks
Awesome. I would recommend this. The guide was very knowledgeable and thorough about the vatican.
Rachel was an outstanding guide. She showed deep knowledge, was articulate, entertaining and funny. She brought history to life. She made our visit memorable. Breakfast did too.
On this trip to Europe and London, we had a total of 21 tours, this by far was the best. Our guide Rachael was fantastic, she was warm, witty and knowledgeable. Breakfast at the Vatican before the public was allowed admission was AMAZING and the food that was on offer was delicious. Our group which consists of 7 people had the place to ourselves, we were able to explore in absolute exclusivity. Of cause when doors were open to general admission, things got a bit crowded, but then again it is to be expected in high season at one of the most visited places in Rome. Nevertheless it does not take away the splendour, beauty and wonder that is the magnificent eternal city.
Really great experience, You are only allowed 15mins in the sistine chapel, but that is just due to the enormous popularity. The early start was just so cool, we were on our own until after breakfast, which was excellent.
This tour was absolutely amazing - starting with a delicious freshly prepared breakfast in the Vatican Courtyard. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable - she really made it a wonderful experience for us. We were the very first group into the Vatican that morning. Obviously, there was "no line" and there were only 8 in our group. Our guide prepared us to see so many awe inspiring things - she took her time with us and shared a lot of interesting insights. We were so-ooo glad that we booked this tour - it was well worth the price!
This guided tour was better than we even anticipated. Not only did we have the privilege of being among the first few people in the Vatican, the amount of information was incredible. I would highly recommend finding time in your trip to do this. The breakfast was really good too!
Excellent experience for this fantastic trip! The breakfast was excellent and it was really wonderful to enjoy the Vatican without the crowd! Definitely recommended!
Being able to tour the Vatican without all the tourists was well worth the price. Our tour guide was amazing....her knowledge of the history and artwork was second to none! I'd do it again and again!
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The Tour Guide, Iremae, was just great - her extensive and well conveyed knowledge as we visited the Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica, and her care and enthusiastic manner made for a wonderful experience - she went out of her way to ensure that .The breakfast in the Vatican Museum courtyard was delicious, beautifully presented and well served. We definitely recommend this tour - and if people are fortunate enough to have Iremae as their guide they will have a wonderful tour.
