This was a great tour. When we arrived at the office everyone was helpful and provided a nice little breakfast. Straight into the Vatican early with no waiting, our guide Elaine was fantastic. She provided us with a good background to what we were seeing, kept it all moving at a good pace and a bit of a laugh along the way. This small group tour was the best way to see the Vatican.

Ciao Angela, we are so happy that you enjoyed your time touring the Vatican with us! Since the Vatican Museums are among the most visited in the world, skipping the lines is very important to ensuring that you make the most out of your valuable time here in the Eternal City. Elaine is one of the best with it comes to navigating the museums and sharing the fascinating history behind the artworks within with passion. Plus, our Italian style breakfast consisting of coffee and croissants is the perfect way to get you through the day! Thanks so much for this perfect 5-star review and for choosing our small, family-run business for your tour. We hope to see you back soon in Rome or one of our other destinations such as Tuscany, Florence, Pompeii, or even the Amalfi Coast!

Our tour guide Mario was excellent! He was very knowledgable about the Vatican and its history. Funny and came across very well to my family. Our daughter was in a wheelchair and he went out of his way to make sure she could get around and see all the sights.

Nice little breakfast. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. I loved the getting in early. However the tour felt rushed. We stood in one place several times to hear extensively about history, then were rushed past or completely missed exhibits. I felt it would have been better if we could've walked and talked. We literally stood in one spot for 10 min in one hall filled with beautiful sculptures, then didn't even go to the end of the hall. I ended up breaking away from the group to actually see sculptures and paintings several times. Our guide was very nice, but I can google history or listen while I walk and may never see the sculptures up close again.
