The one on one experience was terrific. The attention paid and the knowledge shared made for a great tour of the Vatican. Highly recommend it.

A must-see, though we were skipping the line with a lot of other groups. Expert Guide. The crowd made it difficult to see everything on our guide's agenda, and sadly the Raphael Room was closed just before we got there due to overcrowding. If it is at all possible to gain entry 30 min early it would greatly improve the experience.

Ilaria, my PRIVATE tour guide, is highly educated with a doctorate, highly professional, and exacting in her vast knowledge and very personable. She is a pleasure and made this tour very satisfying. Spend the extra money and go on PRIVATE tours with Viator and always Skip the Line tours. Thank you!!

Life-changing! First of all, I would have given six, eight or even ten stars for this once-in-a-lifeltime experience. Our guide, Debora Diego, was knowledgeable, professional and an amazingly nice human being! We were in Rome in the late season, but the Vatican was even less crowded thanks to recent travel concerns. We were able to stroll through the various exhibits and galleries, without having to fight the normal crowds, giving us a very personal and intimate experience with all the amazing treasures. Sistine Chapel was the highlight of our entire European vacation. It was truly a magical experience!

This was an experience of a life time. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Linda's insight and commentary on the highlights of the Vatican. She was deeply knowledgeable of so many details that go beyond any books or written commentaries. I read up in advance of the tour to make sure I knew what to look for but Linda provided so much more insight. There is so much to see, so much to take in, so she cut through the crowds and the guards who all knew her and went straight to the most memorable sites. Thank you so much for a truly great tour!!

Roberto Notarmasi is brilliant. The best tour guide anyone could ask for -- educated, articulate, cultured, well-mannered and enthusiastic. I highly recommend Roberto.
