About What a Life Tours

We created a team made up of insider experts, savvy local guides and specialists in food, art and culture, developing what we believe is the most personal and authentic approach to tourism on the market. We’re all about enhancing the experience for you, the customer, because we used to be just like you – foreigners in this beautiful city, with high expectations on how we wanted to experience it. We genuinely want you to gain unforgettable, stress-free, local insight on your visit. So forget what you know about the typical commercial ‘tour guide’ with a raised umbrella and a rehearsed speech – let us show you the real heart of Italy and ensure you fall in love with this country, just as we have! - The What a Life Tours team

do you have to have the actual hard copy of your proof of vaccination? Or can you have a photo of your vaccine card along with your ID card?

I had the best time on this tour! I loved the intimate setting of a small group, and my tour guide was amazing (unfortunately I can't remember her name). Highly recommend this tour.

Anna our tour guide was very accommodating and super knowledgeable. This tour is only 3 hours long, we didn't want to spend all day in Vatican City so this tour was perfect. We saw the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basillica, and Vatican Museums then we were allowed to hang around as long as we wanted. We skipped the long lines outside and at St. Peter's. With headsets included you could always hear Anna's knowledgeable voice. As a bonus she referred us to the Canadian work depicting the struggles of immigration by Kitchener Ontario's Timothy Schmalz. Would definitely recommend!!

This was a well organised tour in a crowded environment. The guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. He did a good job keeping us all together, guiding us through the security checks and conveying his enthusiasm for all the art treasures.
