The tours themselves were great! The company hosting the tours was...less great. We made sure to get there the 25 minutes early and thank god we did. They did not have our tour purchase on any list so they ended up upgrading us to a semi-private group for the Vatican (which was awesome!). Our guide was excellent but she didn't explain anything until we were already through security at the Vatican. Then, in the afternoon. we went to the Colosseum to meet at 1pm and no one was there. The summer hours state 1pm and winter hours 3pm. Well, we called and they said the tour started at 2pm. Very confusing. But our guide, once again, was fantastic and the Roman Forum portion was really fascinating. Recommend the tour but the company could do with some organization improvements!
A well organised tour. Lovely to be able to view the statuary, tapestries and maps in the Vatican museums at a leisurely pace in uncrowded condition on our way to the Sistine Chapel where we were able to enjoy the works in the company of relatively few people. The guide delivered an informative, and sometimes humourous, explanation of what we would see in the Sistine Chapel and what we were seeing in St Peters. I was happy to pay the tour price for the privilege of a relaxing, uncluttered visit.
First of all I would like to thank Ricardo and Juliano for the beautiful day, I enjoyed every moment both were very knowledgeable and even when asked about things outside the tour they would answer. I enjoyed Juliano’s tour cause he told us stories about artists and their history, Such a nice people, nice tour I made some friends and I will definitely bring my family next time. Love you
Our guide was knowledgeable and made it fun even while keeping to a schedule. The early morning entry was perfect to be able to enjoy the art without a ton of people. We ran out of time to into the Grotto with the guide as they were in the middle of a service but we were still able to go in by ourselves.
Our guide Sandra was great. She did very well. BUT: Outside when we arrived at the steps above the Vatican Museum Tuesday morning at 7.15 it was really dirthy with rubbish all over the place, and the bags was more than full! It was rather crowdy with many people, but the guides did the best for us.
