As the entrance to the Vatican was full of people, finding a guide Simona was difficult, but she found us. The Vatican has a precious collection. As it is a special place, we recommend that people with children in particular guide you. We participated in Kids and Family Tour. The boys were two teenagers, but the tour guide Simona was very enthusiastic to explain, so the kids enjoyed themselves very much. The children started fighting on the way, but she was very calm and perseverance guide. We were able to hear stories about various precious collections from her. Thank you very much!
Serena was an amazing guide. Not only was she knowledgeable but she was wonderful with my kids. They were very comfortable with her and she brought nice goodies for them including an activity book that she created. Highly recommend.
This tour was excellent and I would highly recommend it to all. Our guide was great with the kids and was very knowledgeable. I would recommend private tours as the guide was able to provide history and answer our questions directly. She was also vary patient as we had two kids and an infant in our group of 7.
This was an awesome tour. Maria was our guide and again she was awesome. She was waiting for us at the assigned meeting location which was provided to us with a photo in advance. She spoke excellent English, she engaged the kids in our group, had a vast amount of knowledge about what we were seeing and shared it with our group in an interesting manner. We would highly recommend this excursion to anyone wanting to see the Vatican without waiting in line and with getting the most out of what you are seeing by having someone explain it all to you. The Sistine Chapel is absolutely amazing as was the Vatican Museum and St Peter's Basilica.
Our guide, Rosaria, was great. She was very knowledgeable, which my husband and I appreciated, and she made the tour interesting for our 8-year old twins. She also helped us carry our stroller with our baby in it up and down numerous staircases. This was the only way our family could have seen the museum and Sistine Chapel -- it would have been too difficult otherwise.
This trip was perfect for our family! Our guide, Francesco, made the Vatican very interesting for my family. The Vatican is a challenge under any circumstance because it is crowded. But Francesco managed to make it not seem crowded and kept our attention. My youngest had a book we love Mission Rome which includes scavenger hunts in all the major sites. Francesco helped him with the book and made it even more fun. I would also recommend paying the extra afterwards to go into the top of St Peters. It was cool to do.
Francesca was a wonderful guide. She made the museum come to life for us and the kids (5 and 7). It was a huge day for us- did coliseum and forum in am, but kids hung in there. This is honestly the only way to go!
