We were so fortunate have Massimo as our tour guide! He was so friendly and knowledgeable, navigating us through all the exhibits and pointing out details we never would have seen. We had the unique opportunity to see all the tapestries on display in the Sistine Chapel-it was beautiful. Massimo even took the time to take great family pictures of us! I highly recommend booking the small group totour.more

It was the best experience ever. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and nice. I can’t imagine going through that endless line for hours to get there. We really recommend this tour without hesitation. We were only 7 people, very easy to move through the large groups. 10/10

I’ve been to Rome many times and toured the Vatican at least four times. This was the best ever. Our guide spoke excellent English and was a trained archeologist. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Massimo was a wonderful guide that showed my fiance and I. He was the perfect blend of tour personalization and keeping the tour load manageable. There were many hidden aspects of the museums that the other tour guides were not even aware of that were expertly guided. Thanks again Massimo!

We went straight to the front of an endless line and through security in less than 5 minutes. The Vatican was busy as it was closing early for new year but our guide efficiently took us to all the relevant areas giving us a interesting and knowledgeable commentary. Saint Peter’s Basillica was the highlight. I highly recommend this tour and would suggest that without a guide you would need a whotour.more

Fantastic, very, very good. Our guide score 11 of 10, Massimo knows all about the Vatican, gives details that make the visit wonderful and holds our attention on details that surely without him we would never know, of course, recommend and I will return again with the rest of the family for this tour.

Our tour guy was Alex and he was fantastic! From the moment he welcomed us outside he was warm, friendly knowledgeable and went out of his way to ensure that we got the best out of this tour. We ended up being a real small group that consist of me and my husband and a mom and son. Being such a small made it felt like we are getting a personal tour through the Vatican. From the art work, to thtour.more

Dario was an excellent guide---so very knowledgeable, truly an expert! He delivered his information as we were viewing or progressing to the next site. The whisper hearing device allowed us to hear all he had to say. He paused so we could enjoy the site and comprehend. I was with a friend wino had ambulatory issues and Dario was very considerate of her slower pace. This is a marvelous toutour.more

Our tour guide, Giulia, was magnificent. Quite knowledgeable, very personable. I had some physical issues which caused me to need to rest periodically. She was very caring and accommodating for my needs. the tour opened our eyes to the beauty and reverence of the Sistine and Basilica. Pictures in a book do not do justice to seeing this in person.

Linda was our guide for the small group tour of the Vatican. She was amazing with all her knowledge and insights. She guided us through throngs of people and made it look seamless. We had time to take pictures ask questions and enjoy the experience.
