Engaging tour for the kids picking up all of the highlights

Our English speaking guide, Maria, was waiting for us at the front gate of the museum and was easy to find. Thank God we booked this tour because the museum was very busy just after new year. Maria was able to get us into the museum and to navigate the galleries with ease on our private tour in the crowded museum. She was very knowledgeable and made a game out of the tour to keep the kids engaged which worked very well. Whilst we didn't see everything, Maria showed us the highlights through the museum, Sistine chapel and st Peter's Bacilica and took the time to explain everything really well and in a way the kids could understand. I would thoroughly recommend this tour if you have young kids and want to experience the Vatican museum with a minimum of fuss. Thankyou Maria

Awe-inspiring, every Catholic should take this tour when in Rome.

Our guide, Niccolo was punctual and provided a very comprehensive tour. It was well planned, including coffee and restroom breaks with Metro tickets for the commute to the various sites. He was very patient with us, giving us the time we needed to fully take in the richness of each site. And giving a wealth of insightful information at every site, information that provides for deeper appreciation of the Catholic Faith and Tradition. Niccolo came across sincerely zealous for helping Catholics with the increase in the understanding of the treasures of our Faith, we could not ask for a better guide in this respect. At the end of the tour (which ended late because of our time taken at each site), he even ensured we were set on our way to our next destination.

Rome: The Passion of Jesus Private Guided Tour Reviewed by

Highly worthwhile. Excellent tour guide.

Alessandra was excellent. Her knowledge of everything we saw was phenomenal and she made it fun for the kids aged 10 and 7. She was informative and engaging with stories that took us back to ancient times. We asked lots of questions and she knew the answers. Her props and games made learning fun so the kids learnt without feeling like they were learning! I highly recommend this tour. It made the most of being there.

Paola did an excellent job for child and adults.

We booked this tour because we were travelling with our nine year old grandson. We felt eliminating waiting in line and having someone other than parents or grandparents talking would be optimal. It was. Paola certainly focused on our grandson but the tour was informative and humorous for the adults as well. Our grandson and all of us had a great experience and a large part of that was Paola"s engaging style.

Excellent staff across the company, routing needs to improve

Good for use in Vatican city and for seeing a few of the key Rome tourist places but two things about the bus. Firstly, the route needs to be bigger or run a second circuit. Secondly, the bus stops are really unclear when you are in the street looking for it. The staff on the buses are exceptionally friendly, polite and helpful. The 'inclusives' for site visits are good. Value for money? Probably.
