This tour was excellent! Our guide was very knowledgable and excited to share her love of art with us. She got us in, and past a huge line, in no time and made sure we got the most out of our time together. We were a small group, which is great as the place was packed. I would highly recommend this tour!

Tour guide was challenging to understand and the Vatican was very crowded. That being said, if you have never done the Vatican, it's worth doing.

This was the highlight of our Rome trip and we barely scratched the surface of the treasures that are at the Vatican. Our small group tour turned into a private tour as some people didn't turn up so we were treated personally to an excellent trip through some of the museums museum of geographical maps was incredible ending up at the basilica itself. The guide was an archaeologist and was a wealth of knowledge - even took us underground. We wanted to do it all again!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about everything and I was able to appreciate what I was seeing so much more. Definitely recommended.

This tour never happened! We were contacted too late to meet our contact at the very crowded Vatican! Very disappointed!

Francesca did an excellent job in guiding our small group through the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's even though it was a very crowded day for tours. We were a little disappointed that there wasn't more restriction of access to allow the groups going through to have a better viewing experience of the incredble art in the collection.

Francesca led my small group through the Vatican...and I can't recommend the tour and Francesca highly enough!!! She was amazing, bright and friendly and was a pleasure to walk around with!

Our guide was knowledgable, friendly and did a great job engaging our kids in the tour. We had could have used better directions on where to locate our guide, but given enough time we figured it out. All in all well worth it!

We booked this tour for our honeymoon. We had booked a small group tour but no one else had reserved the same time slot so we ended up with a private tour! Our tour guide Francesca was AMAZING. She was so sweet and knowledgable. She customized the tour to just what we wanted! Highly recommended!
