Francesco did a great job and was wonderful with our two boys (11 and 15). I would highly recommend him, especially if you have kids.

We met Ivana on the steps of the Vatican near the huge lines to enter. We had purchased a private tour (2 people), and Ivana took us immediately inside to the security line, which avoided several very long lines and saved us time for our tour. She spoke excellent English and had a very lively personality. She moved us through... More

Never met Tom but the team is first rate. We had great tours performed by knowledgeable and personable guides. The logistics were flawless and we'll remember the tours for many years to come. Three cheers for Maria and Ivana, and their guiding company.

Our overall experience wouldn't of been the same if we had gone on our... More

We had a perfect tour!! Money well spent!! We had our private tour guide, Paola who was VERY knowledgeable!!! She was early so we were able to start our tour, skipping all the lines!! Paola was a wealth of information and ever so pleasant. I would happily take another tour if ever lucky enough to come back to Rome!!

We had 2 private tours with Niccolo and we had an absolute ball. Our first meeting was very easy and the communication all along was incredible (thanks Pamela!). We did a Vatican City Tour - for content that could be very dry Niccolo weaved his magic to tell us stories and point out things we never would have seen and... More

We had a private tour of the Vatican with Niccolo. I was there with my elderly parents and my sister. Initially, I was concerned that the tour might be too dry for the folks, but my worries were unfounded. Niccolo has a knack for storytelling and made the tour a very interesting one. We told him that we wanted more... More

We had an excellent 3 hour private tour with Niccolo yesterday afternoon. Niccolo was a knowledgeable, and entertaining guide who gave us wonderful insights and little known facts about the art and the history of the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. We feel privileged to have had this wonderful opportunity. Mary and John
