I traveled to Rome by myself and I wanted to explore the Vatican. I Did not know what to expect when it came to this tour as I am a history student and really wanted to learn from it. My parents bought me the ticket as they thought I would gain more if I went on a private tour. The whole tour was amazing and I could have spent all day listening to my guide.

We had an excellent guide. He is very passionate about the Vatican and is extremely knowledgeable. He kept the tour interesting and gave us a lot of information and pointed out many things that we would never have seen. He knows so much about the Vatican and Basilica. He did not overwhelm us with information or make it boring but kept it interesting throughout the whole tour. This is the way to see the Vatican. He was able to take his time and really give us great information. My father-in-law has trouble hearing and has difficulty with accents but our guide spoke perfect English and made all the difference for our tour.

I was told by friends to pay the extra and take a private tour of the Vatican. This was the best decision we made and we had a great tour of the Vatican with our guide. The Sistine Chapel was everything I thought it would be and the museums were breathtaking. This was the best tour we took in Rome. Thank you so much.

There is so much to see and I highly recommend paying for a guided tour. The museums and art work are too vast and complex to read a guide and navigate at the same time. Our guide was amazing and we felt that we made a new friend at the end of the tour.
