This is a fantastic learning experience. Learn while enjoying the art, tapestries, mosaics architecture.
Excellent tour
Robert_H, Jan 2022
An excellent tour that managed to pack in a lot of information and interesting insights into 3 hours or so. Our guide was really personable and obviously passionate about the subjects he covered which added to the experience. There’s so much to see that it wasn’t possible to take everything in so well worth doing the tour and then coming back again. Highly recommend and hope to do another tour when we come back.
Wonderful tour!

Worth every penny! It was like having a private tour to St. Peter’s. Julian was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. I highly recommend this tour.
Great tour. Just don’t book on a Saturday
Cand_L, Jan 2022
Our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable about our stops and was so nice about answering all of our questions. He even offered to stay longer after the tour was over to answer more. Would recommend you take this tour during the week and choose the early morning option. We had early morning option which was great because St Peters was practically empty. However, the Vatican museum was SO CROWDED on a Saturday morning at 9 am with other tour groups that it was difficult for us to get a “marker” where our guide could share the information on the Sistine Chapel before we went it. It was hard to relax and enjoy the rest of the tour due to the large crowds. And I mean really large!! Our guide did the best he could and we still managed to get a lot of information but I will never return on a Saturday.
Excellent and well informative! Great Tour guide!
Matt_K, Jan 2022
Our tour guide started out with a very informative message in Whatsapp that gave us clear instructions of where to meet and what we needed. Once we met, he took us in a very well informative tour and was extremely nice. He really knew his stuff and made sure everyone (even the kids) had a great time. I wish all our tour guides were like him.
Vatican tour with Julian
Faye_H, Jan 2022
Julian was a fantastic tour guide, he was engaging throughout, without any of the cringey jokes but still conveyed plenty of information in a fun and entertaining manner. Was able to answer any questions you had also.
Excellence tour
Hasanah_N, Jan 2022
I and my partner joint the tour with Made In Rome. We liked it a lot, a good organization/time efficience, as well as a clear explanation. Giuliano was an excellence group leader, making sure none left behind. He also offered us to take our pics and advice which spot was best. Worth it to pay that amount of money for 3,5 hours tour!
A great experience!
Arlin_C, Dec 2021
Seeing the religious artifacts inside the basilica is a wonderful experience! Highly recommended! Con: The tour started late. Due to restricted time, joining the tour doesn’t allow you to discover/see everything. The focus of the tour are the highlight destinations i.e. Sistine Chapel, etc.
