we did a private early morning tour of the Vatican. Manuela was great. very knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend her highly. It was definitely worth it to get in ahead of the huge crowds and see the Sistine Chapel.

My wife and I did two tours with What a Life tours of the Vatican and Coliseum. The knowledge and expertise of the tour guides were incredible. I would highly recommend them and will use them in the future.

The small group skip the crowd tour is absolutely the way to go. You have to get up a little early but it's worth it. Our guide, Mario, was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable and thoroughly engaging. This tour was the highlight of our trip.More
