Many say that if you spent 60 seconds looking at each Vatican artifact, it would take 12 years to see it all. By exploring the museums with a private guide, you get to see the most interesting parts and hear more than the standard information given on many group tours.
We loved this private tour. We had a great tour guide and he personalized it to our interests. He gave us great tips about attending a mass at the vatican that afternoon as well. Highly recommend!
An amazing tour and excellent value, we learned so much about the Sistine Chapel that we wouldnt have known without the fantastic Lucia.
What a great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. Thanks again!

So special! We have visited the Vatican before but never with a private guide---so different:. Our guide was knowledgeable and was an expert in carving out a place for us to see and hear her explanations!! Well worth the cost of the tour.
Our tour guide was absolutely incredible. Such a nice person and so knowledgeable. I was truly impressed. The line to get in was so long, I am so thankful we booked this skip the line tour. We would have probably skipped it if we hadn't. Also, it was fantastic to have a private guide. We learned so much. The Vatican Museums are absolutely beautiful. GO!
This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Lorili, was fabulous. She led us through the crowds to the must see things and gave us information and history that we never would have gotten on our own. We were able to ask her questions and chat in a way that could have only happened in a private tour. Well worth the money.
This private tour was really good. It was helpful to have someone who knew their way around through the crowds in there! She took us to a different bathroom with a much shorter line and knew where the elevators and wheel chair entrances were. She explained the parts of the museum that we were most interested in in detail, and we had much more time to enjoy the Sistine Chapel. A guard actually had us go the front of it so we could see the painted wall there and the priest who was there with prayers to remind us all that this is a chapel. The guide then explained all the details we needed for St. Peter's since we could not get there from the chapel due to tons of stairs. We went later and all that info was helpful there. Those Vatican museums are the place to do the private tour since it is so HUGE and so crowded. Great job.
Excellent guide...Piergiorgio! A cultured and articulate gentleman who knew his art and brought everything to life.
Sarafina was fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and gave us more than our money's worth by sharing other true LOCAL experiences that were must sees. It was so worth the extra to have the private tour with just the four of us. Please thank her for us.
Eleanora was a wonderful guide! She was patient with questions and very knowledgeable!
