Attention Internet: If you're looking for a Vatican tour, look no further. This is the one you want! I had the amazing Fi as my tour guide and this was truly a once in a life time experience. She brought so much energy, excitement, and passion for Roman history / art, I wish I could've spent the whole day touring with her. I left feeling like an expert with a much deeper appreciation for this culture. Don't pass this up!

Great experience with Slob and his colleague Janet! We were only 2 and had a unique private tour to discover the artwork of Raffaello and Michelangelo. Even though it is a bit sad to say that, this was the best time to visit the Vatican!

She was very friendly and talkative. She explained the details based on interactions from the group. She avoid the crowd and very respectful for the safety. I even get book recommendation and place for dinner 😬

I was worried about the current situation of COVID-19. Our host was careful about the measures. She always kept an eye on us and avoided crowded places to have a safer experience. Masks were mandatory, the struggle was real, and it was hard to breathe inside some parts of the museum. I had a good time, highly recommended.
