Mauricio Morris our guide was lovely and very patient. I had booked this private tour as I was travelling with my 70 year old parents who had done Rome before but since we had a day to spare in Rome, thought it would be good to have a refresher!

Mauricio was perfect for what we wanted. Really patient and went out of his way to provide us with as much explanation as possible and to show us as much as he could - both on and off the tourist map. He even guided us to a lovely restaurant for lunch.

All in all a really good experience and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Rome and do it comfortably.

Not the cheapist of tours, but as they say you what you pay for. In the end it was only the 2 of us with the tour guide. Her knowledge of the vatican was outstanding. The 3 hours that the tour took just flew by in a heartbeat. Would recommend this tour to everyone.

This was, hands down, the best tour we have ever taken!!!! and #34;Mama and #34; Marissia was so adorable and knowledgable. She shared things that I know other guides didn and #39;t because of her personal and family research. If we ever get a chance to come back, I will only want her for my guide.

Laura was very knowledgeable about the Vatican, St. Peters and Sistine Chapel. She tailored the tour to our interests and did a great job giving us insight into the Vatican.

It was a great tour. Our guide Paula was very informative, knowledgeable and very personable. The tour was changed on short notice due to a papal convening and St Paul's was temporarily closed. She didn't miss a beat, and took extra time to make sure all our questions were answered and we saw everything that was available to us. We will recommend this tour, and Paula, to all our friends.

Excellent tour but I recommend you do this only after you are well rested. We did it on our first day in Rome and it is hard to take in everything if you are jet-lagged! Guide excellent, knowledgeable, friendly. Definitely worth it to skip the line alone!
