When we arrived at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour, we got a bit confused as we were looking for someone in a pink tshirt - don't panic if you get there and it appears noone is around waiting for you. The tour guide is likely sat in the shade at the cafe place waiting for the start time in the shade. Once we set off, our guide was very informative and knowledgable. Overall, the experience was interesting and worth the time.
Thomas our private guide, was exceptional. Very personable and knowledgeable, taught us what we would learn in a Masters Class studying Italian history! Remarkable! But... but... buy... no matter what, the high point of the tour, was St. Peter’s. We have been all over the world and NOTHING compares to what you will experience there. 1 word - Breathtaking. If you don’t go on this tour, you will be missing out.
Would strongly recommend pre booking a tour. Otherwise you’ll be unlikely to be able to get into to these three places on your own. Tour was by I Love Rome and they were fantastic. Well organised and started sharpish. Tour guide was really good and very knowledgeable
Fantastic tour. Mara was our guide and was really informative and interesting- so good that my 15year old son reminded me to give her a good review!! he is not easily impressed especially when sightseeing. The hall with the maps was a highlight - thank you Mara
The guide was friendly and was very informative. I travelled with a small child and she made sure that she wasn’t going too fast for us. The only thing that would’ve made it better was not skipping some of the other rooms throughout the Vatican museum.
