Absolutely brilliant. Any longer would have been a bit too much. We had an American guide who was second to none. Her knowledge was vast but her enthusiasm was what made the tour.

The Vatican and St Peter tour was a great value. Our tour guide Luigi was very knowledgeable and informative. He was also very concerned with the well being of the entire group insuring that all of us got the most from our experinece. He was espacially accomodating to the seniors in the group.

the tour was great and the tour guide was excellent. The only down side was finding the starting place. needed better directions. There are a lot of green gates on that street.A sign or banner is needed on the street to help in finding.

This was a fantastic tour. If your guide is Luigi, you are in great hands. This was a truly, skip-the-line experience. We walked through the various galleries and with Luigi's art and history knowledge, it really made us experience and appreciate all the things we were looking at. The tour end in the basilica, after walking through the vatacombs. Ending with Michealangelo's Pieta was another highlight! This is a must do, even if you are in Rome only for a day!

Probably the best tour I have ever taken. Luca was an amazing tour guide and with his degree in archeology, it really made the tour. He painted a picture so clear with the details he provided, it seemed the ruins came to life. He actively asked what people wanted to know about before the tour started and made sure everyone was engaged.
