Magical Morning tour with David

This tour rates 100% in all aspects. We were picked up on time from our BnB, breezed through into the Vatican with no waiting. Our guide David was very informative, but also very charming and funny. He didn't rush us through our visit, but managed to keep us ahead of all the hordes. Loved every minute of the tour and would recommend this to everyone (ages in our group from 24 years to 60 years)

This was my 4th visit to both places and all I can say is this is the ONLY way to do it! No crowds!! Unbelievably organized. And our tour guide was the best tour guide we have ever had... and my wife and I travel the world. So informative, so convenient, such a pleasant way to experience! Our time and pace in the Sistine Chapel was incomparable to any other experience.

Private Vatican Tour Worth Every Minute! Exceptional All around.

This was the the first time going to the Vatican and we wanted to make sure we saw the major highlights. The private guide had excellent communication and very knowledgeable. The hotel pick up was on time, clean and very friendly. The guide himself had an an excellent understanding of the Vatican and all the different aspects. He made sure we were able to see the highlights, without being caught in the herds of people with large groups. The level of explanation in all areas of the tour was exceptional. The amount of items in the Vatican is overwhelming and really can't been seen one visit. This will be one of many visits I hope in the future. It was money and time well spent, without all the hassle of informal/crowded tours with everyone else.

This tour was amazing as was our tour guide Georgia! She offered interesting facts about everything we saw! Getting there early is a must to avoid the larger 1000+ crowds! The Sistine chapel is the highlight, but don’t miss St. Peter’s Basilica as well! We got a real treat seeing the cardinals come out of their meeting & linger around St. Peter’s square! A truly special experience!

Awesome! Fantastic! This tour is to be recommended! A private tour with an art historian - cannot be beaten! If you want to miss the queues, this tour is for you. The hotel pick-up made everything so easy and our guide was waiting for us at the entrance to the Vatican. Unfortunately I cannot remember his name but what a lovely young man - learned, experienced and patient - a well of information and passionate about his subject. My aged mom accompanied us on this tour - the guide really took her into consideration. Everything was bigger and much more impressive than I imagined - the WOW factor in overdrive! Visit the Vatican as early as possible or if you are able to, take a private tour before or after hours. There is so much to see and learn, which potentially can be lost when in a crowd. Well worth a 5-star rating!

Fizemos o tour em português com o guia Mário, muito simpatico, divertido, tem muito conhecimento sobre a Cidade do Vaticano e as obras de arte. Como estávamos com um sênior, foi muito prestativo adaptando o passeio ao nosso ritmo. Foi ótimo! Além disso, esperamos apenas 15 minutos para entrar, e visitamos a Capela Sistina com bastante tranquilidade..
