It was an amazing experience. Simple, easy and enriching.The tour operator - When In Rome Tours - is amazingly located just a few meters from Vaticano Museum entrance and is very well organized starting from check in.Our guide Maximo (Max) was well above any expectation a true and genuine lover of his job with a endless knowledge of Vaticano. He gave us an amazing experience explaining every detail with some very interesting stories along the 3 hours tours. If we will back to Vaticano we will repeat the experience with Maximo. WELL DONE MAXIMO!!!

We started the morning meeting at the tour office which was right around the corner from the Vatican. Very easy to find. There we received our headsets. These were basically mini microphones for us to hear our guide even if he was 20-30 feet away from us. Great technology. We received our tickets for the Colosseum that we were going to use that afternoon. We then were able to use the restrooms and relax for a few minutes prior to departing. We left for the tour on time. We thoroughly enjoyed our Vatican Tour with Dario. He was an excellent guide and was very easy to understand. We chose the option to tour the Colosseum on our own that afternoon after 2pm, which gave us time to go back to the hotel and eat lunch and rest. This was a great value for the price. Thank you Dario!

We learned so much from our guide Max. He was patient, kind and well informed and enthusiastic! Loved being able to skip the lines (which were about 4 hours long if you didn’t book ahead)

Christina was an awesome tour guide. She was very educational, spoke clearly and had to deal with a non-English couple and she was very patient with them. She also made a few jokes and made it enjoyable. The Colosseum is self-guided, but you do not need a 3 hour tour. The ticket gets you the entrance and you can walk around.

The Vatican tour was amazing mainly due to the guide Christina from Savannah, GA who's very knowledgeable about the culture, the place and the inside story of the Vatican. Very well paced tour and highly enjoyed by all members of our family. Strongly recommend

Worth your money.

Our guide Luigi was highly educated on the Vatican and took additional time to answer my fiancés extra questions. Overall a great time. The tour was approximately 4 hours. Meeting at the office was very nice as you can use the facilities, etc. before taking off. The office is located right in the neighborhood over by the Vatican, but can be a little hard to stop from the street so just Google maps the office before you go there to make sure you find it.

My favorite tour so far! It was so nice to be able to go to the colosseum on our own time another day. Long days full of tours can be exhausting, and I feel like you miss out on a lot because you’re rushed. This is the ideal set up, and I learned SO MUCH at the Vatican, our tour guide was fantastic!
