Fabiana was perfect!! She picked us up at our hotel, with no problem and she knew exactly where to be and when to be there to make it so we got the most enjoyment out of our tour. She was friendly and nice and extremely knowledgeable. She knew the answers to all our questions. We did not wait in one line for even a minute - that alone was worth the cost! Fabi being so great was icing on the cake! Can't recommend her enough.

This was a highly informative tour. Our guide explained all that was necessary and when we asked him questions he was a mine of information. He collected us from our hotel and showed us exactly where to pick up a taxi to get back again.

For us, a private tour was the only way to go so that we could go at our own pace. Our guide was fabulous, very knowledgeable and interesting. This tour is a must for anyone in Rome, the art is breathtaking and just gives you goosebumps!! To say The Sistine Chapel is amazing, is an understatement and St Peter's Basilica is phenomenal.

Great tour by Alexander. He provided very much information the normal tourist would not get. It was personal and unique.

I'm glad that we were collected from our hotel as the Vatican area was extremely busy and I would have hated having to figure out where to go. Our guide, Valeria, was wonderful. Her knowledge was fantastic and she was always able to answer our questions. Was great to be able to pretty much walk straight in to the Vatican as the public line was about a kilometre long and it was pretty hot. It was really good to be able to step away from the crowds as well when we entered the rooms that the general public don't get to see. The crowds of visitors were huge however we still got to see everything we wanted to see. Overall it was a fantastic visit - a place that you shouldn't miss if you are visiting Rome.

I can't begin to tell how much we enjoyed our tour of the Vatican with our friendly, Italian tour guide Stephanie. We met at our hotel to taxi over, which was very helpful. Through the whole tour, we were able to see and hear from Stephanie the most amazing sights and artworks. Through the vast, crowded halls and into the Sistine Chapel, we received excellent commentary and instruction, at our own, unhurried pace. We highly recommend this tour!
