Had a wonderful experience with this tour. It was so nice for my husband and I to have a private guide so we could focus on what we were most interested in. Christina was a wonderful knowledgeable guide and had answers to all our questions and then some. Highly recommend this tour!

Perfectly timed to visit most of the wonderful Vatican Museums. Deborah, our guide, was extremely nice, kind and most of all, prepared. She was able to answer to all of our questions and she gave us the perfect historic background to understand all the art and architecture.

Amazing experience. I didn’t expect the tour guide to be so easy going and yet so knowledgeable. I’d recommend her 1000x over again.

Tour guide was very informative and friendly. Our 13 and 19 year olds were extremely mesmerized by all of the sites. The tapestries were an added bonus. You could spend an entire day and still not see everything. Plan on a minimum of 3 hours. Skip the line and private tour guide was the way to go!

We had a private family tour (2 parents and 2 grown kids) and Frances was educational and entertaining. We were wowed by his knowledge and passion for pointing out special facts you don’t get on a group tour. He was so considerate of our needs and made the visit to the Sistine Chapel even more exhilarating with his commentary. He even suggested and made time for us to mail postcards from the Vatican. Paying a little extra for a private tour was well worth it! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I had passed the front of St. Peter's Basilica several times by foot and car as a tourist over the years, but never realized that Vatican City is indeed a small city-many times larger than just the Basilica. My guide brought this city to life as I learned about its history and beauty of the Basilica, Chapel, and Museum in relationship to the other buildings within the city.

Phenomenal experience at the Vatican

Our private tour with Franz (?spelling)was fantastic. Vatican City is an incredible piece of history, art, and architecture that cannot be missed. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the Vatican’s religious and political history , it’s architecture, and its beautiful array of art history. I would only wish we could have spent more time with our guide at the Vatican!
