Amazing!
Oct 2021
We did this tour in group one this morning. From start to finish it was so well organised no stress worrying about what you needed to show when. The tour guide Julius kept you informed well in advance as to what you needed and when. He was really knowledgeable about everything without being boring and with a good sense of humour er never rushed anybody and always told you where to take the best photographs. He also had a knack of getting our group as close to what we were looking at as possible without being rude to anybody. Had to best day for my birthday today and cannot recommend this tour highly enough felt Covid safe at all times.

Great tour!
Amanda with the Tour Guy was a great, knowledgeable tour guide through the Vatican. The other the couples didn’t show up for the start, so after waiting for 30 minutes we began our tour. We were concerned our tour would be shortened but Amanda more than made up for it, giving an even longer tour than scheduled to cover more ground! Unfortunately we were unable to visit St Peters Basilica since the pope had closed it for the day, but that is out of the tour company’s control. We even received dinner recommendations and she let us borrow one of her books when visiting the Sistine Chapel and no talking is allowed. We recommend this tour.

Amazing Tour!
Jun 2021 • Friends
My friends and I had a tour of the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica on
Saturday, June 12th with our tour guide Fabiola. I cannot find a place
on the website to leave a review, but I wanted to write to provide my
many thanks and praise for the amazing tour Fabiola provided us.

We were lucky to have such a small group of us, which made it very
personal. She made us feel like close friends! She provided very in
depth history and explanations of all the exhibits making it very
enjoyable and easy to navigate what would otherwise be an overwhelming
amount of artwork and exhibits to explore on our own.

Fabiola was clearly an expert and had an endless amount of background
knowledge and insider tricks. Her friendly and bubbly personality made
our experience that much better.

I would recommend this tour and Fabiola to anyone

Papa Frank is an amazing guide!
May 2021 • Couples
"Papa Frank" (Franco) was an incredible guide. His knowledge is so deep. If I come back to Rome I would request him directly. We booked an in-depth tour that took about five hours. Amazing.

The best tour (and guide) we could have asked for!
Our tour guy, Franco, is a walking encyclopedia. Every question was answered with utter precision and amazing anecdotes. Sights like the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel are hard to get through for people like us (concentration span of goldfish), but he made this several hours long experience an unforgettable one. By far the best tour we have ever had. Thank you so very much Franco!

P.s. Rome was practically empty and we felt safe. Masks were worn throughout all the tours we did and temperatures were taken at entrances. Very well organized. You’ll not see Rome like this once the tourists start to flood back in again, a trip to remember for sure.

Damn Corvid19 - but great service on the cancellation
May 2019
Had been greatly anticipating this tour. Booked it months in advance. Then Corvid19 showed up. I had to cancel a lot of things that day. The Roman Guy's approach was smooth and easy. The actual refund will, of course, take some time. Communication was fast and clean throughout the booking and the cancellation. I'm impressed.
