We had a fantastic time on the tour with Luca and our two traveling companions. The tour was everything we could have wished for and more. Luca was an excellent and very knowledgable tour guide. We saw and learned so many wonderful things about Roma and had much fun in the process. The whole day went smoothly. We covered quite a bit of territory, We visited the Vatican, skipped the line at the Sistine Chapel before the crowds came, saw Saint Peter's Basilica, the beautiful Trevi Fountain and skipped the line at the Colloseum,including the underground cells, We forgot our camera, so Luca even took photos of us and emailed them to us. Even the place we stopped for lunch was great! We highly recommend this tour to all who really want to see the best of Roma. Thanks so much, Luca and Livitaly.

As it was our first time to Rome, visits to the Vatican and the Colosseum were a priority. This tour exceeded expectations. Our day began in Vatican City and ended at the Colosseum. We had unexpected stops at the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain and Palatine Hill. Built into our day was lunch and gelato. Our tour guide Luca was friendly, insightful and full of knowledge at every stop. Although appropriate attire is expected in Vatican City, comfortable shoes are a must. The private van for transportation was incredible but you will be walking throughout the day. Our July day was very hot as well - always have water. Thank you Luca!

This was the most amazing tour possible! We had an incredible guide - Luca - who was incredibly knowledgeable, charming, and witty.

We traveled throughout Europe for three weeks, and this tour was the highlight of the entire trip.

The tour started at the Vatican where we got early entree to explore for about an hour I believe before the general population. Because we were such a small group - 6 people only - we moved quickly to all of the highlights and often found ourselves in rooms/sections alone. After seeing the Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica, we were driven by a private driver to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and our lunch spot.

After lunch, we continued our tour of the Colosseum where we skipped the line and got access to the underground cells and the very top upper tier.

This tour was worth every penny. We have already recommended it to our friends!

Luca our guide was fantastic and made the tour more than worth it. He was lovely, kind, passionate and knowledgeable! He was able to answer all our questions and more! The tour itself is a great set up. With an early entry making the most inside the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter and #39;s is breathtaking! Lunch beside the Pantheon, you must visit the gelato shop with 150 flavours. We joined other groups including their guides for the underground Coliseum tour which was awesome! And finished off with an aerial view of the whole stadium! A very long day but more than worth it to see everything we did. Don and #39;t forget to wear comfy shoes! You and #39;ll need them.

This was an amazing tour. Our guide, Luca, was extremely knowledgeable regarding history and art history and was very funny. This tour is a full day and includes lots of walking, 15 miles. We were the only two that had the full day tour and other groups of two met us for either the Vatican or the Colosseum separately so there are options if you don't want to do it all in one day. For us this all in one option was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Definitely recommend!!

We had a fantastic day with Paulo. He was a veritable font of knowledge and we learnt so much!
The whole process was so very easy.
We would highly recommend it, you spend time seeing the things you really want to see, without spending it all queueing.
Thanks again!

Amazing tour! We were so glad that we booked this tour together to see both the Vatican and Colosseum. The tour guide was amazing. We were with her at the Vatican and because our group was so small compared to other groups she really kept track of us and we had plenty of time to get all our questions answered. The sistine chapel was incredible! We had plenty of time to sit or stand and enjoy the awesome artwork. We had early entrance into the sistine chapel which was well worth the money. She made sure we were one of the first visitors to enter the chapel. She got the taxi to the Colosseum and helped us to find a great little place for lunch. The Colosseum tour was incredible! Seeing underground and hearing about the history made the tour amazing! We were able to skip the lines at both places which is so worth your time and money and get right up close and personal with all there is to see. When we return, we will book this tour again with the same company! We had other tours in Rome with big tour groups and we have decided for future travels we will be booking with this tour company. The experience is unmatchable!

Great tour. Our group was only 6 people and it was very nice getting a personalized tour. Our tour guide was great and knew what he was talking about.

Our tour guide was what really made this tour for us. She was very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. She had also organized a lovely place for lunch, which turned out to be a godsend as most restaurants/cafes had a long line of people waiting for tables.
Our group had 6 people and was the perfect size for us.
The Early Entrance doesn't get you into the Vatican any earlier than anyone else, you just get the early to meet your guide and get in line before the other tourists get there.

So the Vatican is way too big to negotiate yourself and understand anything but the flip side is that you do a tour and get talked to death! I was hoping for something in the middle. Doing the Vatican and the Colesseum all in one day should not be tour as it is way too much for one person to digest when they are on vacation. This tour should also come with a warning. Didn't have much fun, too much preaching!
