My family and I took the VIP tour of the Vatican and were extremely happy with our choice. Our guide, Luca, had an expert command of English and a profound understanding of the subject matter. He was able to elaborate on subtle details of the art we were viewing and explain

Dear Amy A, Thanks for taking our group ViP Vatican tour which is a tour that is close to my heart. No one else in Rome really offers a 5 hour experience going to the Vatican City and with the ability to see that Paint Gallery as well as the Sistine Chapel, it can be an inspiration in one’s life. Getting to see this place with Luca must have been indeed truly amazing. I am so glad that he was able to put everything into a context for you on your journey into the Catholic center of the world. I thank you for your point about taking a longer break during the tour and I will check with Luca about how long it was on that day. I agree that it should be long enough for you to enjoy your food and have a nice conversation about what you have seen with the people that are touring with you. Kind Regards, Rob

We benefitted from our guides knowledge and direction in this very crowded museum. She was knowledgeable and adept at moving us around the crowds. As a comfort, she even knew when to recommend bathroom breaks!

Ciao Experience751847, It's always great to hear that clients enjoy their time with us. Taking a tour with one of our certified guides is an guaranteed experience that will allow you to take home a deeper appreciation for what sites are being visited. Our guides have toured the walls of places like the Vatican and Colosseum over a hundred of times and still carries enthusiasm on each tour and picked up a thing or two about organising the right time for bathroom breaks :) Thank you for your review, and we can't wait to have you join us again ! -Gina

We were so grateful to have Art Historian Guia Grandi as our guide. She really helped us navigate the multiple layers of fantastic art and history as we would have been overwhelmed otherwise. We highly recommend her for anyone wanting to take the private tour. The cost was well

We are truly grateful to you for your recommendation to fellow travellers to book with us! Guia is a gracious and gloriously amazing guide and she loves nothing more than sharing her vast knowledge with her guests. It's quite incredible what stories lie behind the art works within the museums which one might otherwise miss so having such an experienced guide as companion, really is essential! We will be sure to pass along your lovely words to her and thank you for your 5-star review!

My husband and I took this tour with Guilia from Through Eternity. She is an art historian and gave us the highlights of all of the art in the Vatican museum. She was knowledgeable, helpful and delightful. The Vatican is CRAZY in terms of numbers of visitors and I was happy

Responded 1 May 2019
Hi Holly, Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us and Guia! I am glad you enjoyed her passion for the arts. I actually had the opportunity to follow a tour with her myself, so I understand exactly the level of knowledge and delightfulness you are talking about. A visit to the Vatican is definitely worth it, unfortunately the number of visitors has increased a lot over the years, but thanks to our Silver partnership with them we are guaranteed skip the line tickets and nice entry times. We and our guides always try to tailor our tours to the group of clients on the tours and it's so satisfying to read we got this across during our Vatican tour with you. We truly believe that the combination of the 3 parts of the tour (the museums, the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica) make a perfect triangle to understand the history of the places and enjoy the beauty that it is today. We hope to welcome you again in Italy in the future!

Robert Huber invested all his knowledge and art history background in this 5-hour tour. I've been through the Vatican museums several times, but never saw or understood as much. I particularly liked the attention paid to the Greek and Roman collections, and the fact that he

Hello Matisse390 ! Love your name I'm a fan of Expressionism/Post-Impressionism artists myself :) I would like to start by saying your sentiments are mutual ! I, like you, having already been to the Vatican, experienced a visit with Robert Huber, and took home a deeper appreciation for the artworks housed there then I did during my previous visit. Even as an employee of the company, I still get blown away every time I get the opportunity to join one of our tours with our spectacular team of guides, some who've even been with us from the start, 20 years ago. Each guide carries their own style in bringing the art to life for our visitors. Our guides have walked the walls of places like the Vatican and Colosseum over a hundred of times and still have the enthusiasm to infinite our guests interests each time, that's true passion for the arts ! Thank you for your review, and we can't wait to have you join us again ! - Gina
