Colosseum tour is excellent, but not Vatican & Sistine Chapel

The package has 2 parts - first is with Colosseum and we upgraded to visit Palentine Hill. Tour company is "Tour in the City" with Maximo as our guide, whom we really enjoyed ourselves. He's so humorous and pace the tour nicely. Seond part is the visit to Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel, tour company is "Explore Italy Tours" and the tour guide is bad. Felt a dread following the tour guide to be honest, couldnt appreciate his jokes and he chased away the other tourists abruptly if he needs to use the space. After tour ends, he rushed off quickly.

Colosseum, Vatican and Sistine Chapel

After our cruise in the Adriatic, we set aside a day to "see" Rome for the first time. We signed up for the tour of the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill in the a.m. and the Vatican and Sistine Chapel in the p.m. For the morning tour, Sam was our tour guide and was absolutely fantastic with his narrative of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill area. It was a most enjoyable experience, In the afternoon, we became a group of six (6) who were assigned to Massimo. Massimo is a very experienced guide and a great personality for this experience. We were able to tour the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica in a period of three hours. Massimo was very adept in getting us through large crowds and we were given the impression that he was very knowledgeable on all of sites. Both tours were excellent and we were so fortunate to have been assigned to these guides. Would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Rome for a short time.

My family really enjoyed this tour, despite the rainy weather. Both starting points of the tour were easily accessible by metro and located close to the attractions. The Colosseum tour was shorter than I expected it to be, but very informative. The Vatican Museum tour was much longer—comfortable shoes are definitely required. But still very enjoyable. I recommend this tour for anyone with limited time in Rome.
