Initially I was concerned that our 2 young children would get bored as we had already dragged them around various sites. They loved the Colosseum, but after an hour they had had enough. We took the chance and paid extra for a private kid friendly tour and it was the right decision. Our guide was excellent at ensuring we all enjoyed the Vatican and learned from our experience. Thank you for this.

Trying to balance our vacation so that the kids would not get bored and that they would learn something about Europe was high on our list when we planned our trip. We saw this tour online and booked it and it was the best tour we booked. The children loved how our guide explained the history in a simple way for them with the use of visual aids. This was worth every cent we spent on it. Thank you from Peter and Ann Richards.

We signed up for this family tour on our recent trip to Rome. If you have kids you will know it is never easy to keep them interested when you visit large cities. This tour was great. Our guide did a great job of keeping the children interested in the history of the Rome and it also gave us as parents, more insight into the city.

Not only was our guide knowledgeable, but she was great with our kids. They were very relaxed with her and asked many questions. The Vatican was a once in a lifetime experience for my husband and I, and this is why we decided to do a kid friendly private tour. We had a great experience and seeing my six and eight year old sons learning about the Vatican and enjoying themselves at the same time was wonderful.

This tour was definitely a highlight of our time in Rome. We knew we wanted to see the Vatican but with a 9 year old who only wants to swim or go for real Italian pizza, we were concerned about spending the money for a private tour and maybe not being able to complete it. We were not disappointed, and the three hours flew in. Our guide was wonderful and our daughter was amazed at how she told her stories about Rome. Thank you and we will recommend your tour to all of our friends.

The Vatican tour included the, Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica which together is an enormous tour. You could spend forever inside this place but as we only had around 3 hours and we chose this tour as it is advertised as kid friendly. Our guide was great with our 7 year old, she made the tour interesting not only for her but for my husband and I as well. She used visual aids and Emma was talking about the nice roof forever afterwards. This is an excellent tour if you have children.

Our guide spoke wonderful English and she really made this tour enjoyable. We took our 12 year old son and he connected immediately with her. My husband and I were overawed by the Sistine Chapel and not having to spend hours in a line was an added bonus. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you have children.
