This is the tour of all tours!!!!! David was fantastic! I will do this again if ever I have the opportunity!
This tour is not cheap but it thoroughly justified the cost. My husband and I treated ourselves as I was celebrating a big birthday and we loved it. Seb was a hugely well-informed guide and made everything so interesting. I only wish I could remember more of what we were told - there was so much to take in over the three hours! The sights were just fabulous, especially the rooms closed to the general public, which felt very special, while the climax of the tour, the Sistine Chapel with only our small group present, was simply superb.
Barbara our guide was wonderful and provided very educated insights into the many amazing areas we visited on the tour. It was wortH every penny. An exceptional tour.
Wonderful fantastic tour - seeing the Sistine Chapel with no one in it was magnificent. Made the cost of the tour cheap. The guided tour and commentary on the rest of the Vatican's secret rooms was amazing.
Our tour guide, Laura, was very friendly and spoke excellent English. Laura was hugely and interestingly informative about the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel. We saw a number of rooms that are usually closed to the public, including the fabulous Bramante staircase. Highlight was to be the final group in the Sistine chapel that day, just 15 of us and our guide with a half-hour to take it all in. Not cheap! But as a special occasion visit, really excellent.
Probably the highlite of my Rome trip. Our small group of 15 were the last ones for the day to see the Sistine Chapel. So instead of 150 people going thru, we had a small intimate group. Once again a delightful guide.
I completely forgot to buy a book about Michaelangelo and Raphael. At the end of my 3 weeks in Italy,
one of my 3 suicases was full of souveniers; and still room for more stuff.
1 word: INCREDIBLE! To visit The Sistine Chapel with only 11 others and take in its beauty is simply breathtaking. Our guide, David, brought to life the magnificent artwork; not only in The Chapel, but in the other other "special" rooms, as well! Thank you!
Nina was fabulous.
The tour withits private access and her inside knowledge was brilliant. Seeing the Sistine chapel in such a small group was a real priveledge.
I have been to Rome nine times over the past 7 years. I've been to the Sistine Chapel each time and never in my life have I enjoyed the jaw-dropped experience of standing in the Sistine Chapel when it was COMPLETELY empty. Our tour guide David knew everything about every piece in the Vatican Museum, took amazing care of our small group (there were just 10 of us) and helped make this the best trip ever. I would recommend this company and David as a guide to anyone who wants an incredible, unique experience in Rome!
Wow, everything we expected and more. The highlight was 30 minutes in the Sistine Chapel with only 8 other people after closing, simply amazing!
Amazing tour! Our guide Nina was extremely knowledgeable and her enthusiasm was delightful. Highly recommended!
Amazing! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and the beauty of the tour was amazing!
Our tour guide Agostina is a really great guide. Her experience working for the vatican added to the experience. The rooms not open to the public are must see if you are in Rome. There were 10 people in our group and we had the sistine chapel to ourselves for 30 minutes. One of the best tours we did on our European vacation.
