We did 2 tours with this company and both were excellent. The first was the Vatican tour. Although it was very busy (best time to go would be Jan/Feb not May or in the summer when it is packed) the guide was excellent. She was informative, attentive and guided us all through the museum. The guide made the tour fun... More

Even though the Vatican was crowded our guide, Elise, took us through the Vatican expertly and she was so witty! We had in our group such a rude couple that I felt so sorry for her and I was glad when they left the tour. Everything was educational (she has a real passion for Michelangelo's art), she spoke flawless english... More

Went in May 2017, and joined a tour for Vatican City. There are many tour groups organizing tours for the City, one of which is City Wonders (appears to be quite popular as I see them with pretty large groups) Anyways, my group was on time and it was divided into 2 sub-groups for easier management. The tour guide was... More

Booked this tour from home, messaging company and receiving good information & advice prior to our trip. The tour was informative and our English speaking guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Ear pieces are worn by all group tours, so it's easy to hear. The queue for the Vatican was very long, so it was useful to be able to go... More

We where met by our guide Kristiana at the designated meeting place in plenty of time where she immediately made everyone feel at ease, I found her to be very personable, easy going, confidant and knowledgeable and breezed us through the whole process with timely efficiency, so glad I took this tour, especially after seeing the ridiculous lines of people...

Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the Vatican Tour with Cristiana. The Vatican can get very busy in high season, this being one of the main reasons we book skip-the-line tickets for our customers. We hope to see you again in Rome. A la prossima! More

Toured the Vatican, and Christiana was absolutely outstanding! She was flexible to our needs and adjusted as we needed. She knows the details and is willing to share her knowledge to ensure we had a fantastic tour!

We had a tour arranged before we got to Rome with Maximus. Easy to book, details where to meet very precise, and what we liked was that when you walked into St. Peters Sq, information and guides were asking if you had a tour booked and who with, and they would kindly direct you to where the meeting points was...

We went on a tour with our four young children (ages 7-12). They are used to going to museums so this was outside of the norm for them, but all of us learned so much from the tour. The tour guide was excellent and brought to life this incredible museum. Would highly recommend. We wouldn't have learned nearly as much--... More
