Great tour, our guide was knowledgeable, patient and explained everything well. We were a smaller group compared to a lot of other tour companies, so the individual attention was great and worth the fees charged.

Tour guide was excellent in giving the history and guiding us through the Museum and chapel. Plus we were able to skip the long lines.

Our visit to the Vatican was one of the highlights of our mini trip to Rome. Christina is a great guide! One thing that makes the difference is she is certified by the Vatican as a guide, therefore, she has access to these great touch screens inside the vatican to help explain the sistine chapel. My husband is not really into history and art (to say the least) but the screens and Christina's way of telling the story captured his attention. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

We were fortunate to have an expert guide Ciara for our tour. Her knowledge was excellent, as was her charming manner. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would recommend it very highly.
