We had a wonderful guide! She was informative without overloading us. Since we finished early, she even rode with us to the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. She took good care of us. Getting in early before the crowds was key.
We had an absolutely wonderful time starting our day with breakfast and a private tour at the Vatican museum. If you have the chance, request Gianluca! He is incredibly knowledgeable, and a pleasure to spend the tour chatting with.
Alissia was awesome as a private tour guide. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. The private pick up from the hotel was great since it was hard to get a taxi for 5 people. This created no worries. The private breakfast at the Vatican and the tour that followed were terrific. Then a hotel drop off at the end was just so convenient. It strongly recommend this tour.
We met Giuliano at our hotel at 6:45 (he was early!) and then transferred to the Vatican. He used all the available time to talk to us about what to expect during our day and to find out more about how he could customize our experience. We then entered the Vatican prior to public opening and had a nice breakfast in the Pine Cone Courtyard (American style buffet). Afterwards, we explored the many galleries including Tapestries and Maps which were fantastic without any crowds. We also saw Raphael's rooms and all along the way we learned interesting stories and controversies about the art. My sister is an Art History major and Giuliano easily answered all her questions. His passion and knowledge rank him among the best guides we've had in all our travels. Bravo to Eyes of Rome!
