The Vatican Tour was fantastic. We were in a group of 6 for the private tour. We met at the office which was right by the Vatican. Here we met our tour guide, Paola. She was unbelievable. She knew her facts on the Vatican and answered any or all questions.The tour lasted about 3 hours. Again, I would like to give my thanks to Paola as she was very professional and informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone and if possible request Paola as your guide. I can't say enough about Paola. She is an A number tour guide. Thank you Paola for making this tour great.

It was an amazing experience. Simple, easy and enriching.The tour operator - When In Rome Tours - is amazingly located just a few meters from Vaticano Museum entrance and is very well organized starting from check in.Our guide Maximo (Max) was well above any expectation a true and genuine lover of his job with a endless knowledge of Vaticano. He gave us an amazing experience explaining every detail with some very interesting stories along the 3 hours tours. If we will back to Vaticano we will repeat the experience with Maximo. WELL DONE MAXIMO!!!

We started the morning meeting at the tour office which was right around the corner from the Vatican. Very easy to find. There we received our headsets. These were basically mini microphones for us to hear our guide even if he was 20-30 feet away from us. Great technology. We received our tickets for the Colosseum that we were going to use that afternoon. We then were able to use the restrooms and relax for a few minutes prior to departing. We left for the tour on time. We thoroughly enjoyed our Vatican Tour with Dario. He was an excellent guide and was very easy to understand. We chose the option to tour the Colosseum on our own that afternoon after 2pm, which gave us time to go back to the hotel and eat lunch and rest. This was a great value for the price. Thank you Dario!

We learned so much from our guide Max. He was patient, kind and well informed and enthusiastic! Loved being able to skip the lines (which were about 4 hours long if you didn’t book ahead)
