Fantastic tour. Our guide was Iavana through Carpe Diem and she was FANTASTIC. There was not a dull moment as mmm during the 3 hours we spent with her. She’s a former teacher so the way she delivers information is incredible. We booked the 10 person max 30 minute tour and the group size was just perfect. I highly recommend you do the early start time as we did, it allowed us to get up close to the works of art and allowed ample time to stop and take pictures without it being to crowded. I highly recommend you try and get a guide through Carpe Diem and if at all possible go with Ivana

This was an absolutely fantastic and fabulous tour. Our guide “Fee” (or Felicity to give her, her full title) was simply marvellous. Fee was knowledgeable, engaging, funny and constantly drew the whole group together. What could have seemed like a marathon foot slog quickly became an entertaining  adventure; the time just flew by. We can thoroughly recommend this tour and I hope you are as lucky as we were and have Fee to guide you.

We had a fabulous time on our tour with our tour guide at the Vatican Museum. Highly recommend this tour, there is no way we would have been able to see all of the art we wanted in that amount of time without her knowledge and guidance. Thank you!

Barbara, our guide, was excellent. Knowledgeable both about the history and how to literally navigate the dense crowds.

Tour guide was excellent ! Knew the answer to all our questions. She was so cute and personable. Very organized
