    Simona was a fantastic guide and we were so glad to have booked this tour with her. The scavenger hunt and games she had for the kids were perfect, and kept our 11 year old boy (who is always bored) engaged the whole time. Her command of the history and ability to tell stories is truly impressive. I was not thrilled with how expensive it was to see the Vatican like this, but it was worth it. The Vatican was crazy crowded and I honestly don’t think we could have done it on our own without a lot of stress and wasting a ton of time. We learned so much more and got so much more out of it by doing the tour with Simona. I would do it again.

    It was a very hot day. I booked the family one for my kids and it didn’t keep there attention. I would have liked more of a kid friendly tour. It was very hot and the guide talked way to much.

    Our guide was Rossella and she was wonderful! She studies art history and is a devoted, passionate, knowledgeable and personable guide. She is also a real pro at navigating your small group through the throbbing crowds. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenaged boys (one with Autism, thus the need for a private tour) and our experience couldn't have been better. Highly recommend this tour and in the end it is a good value!

    Our group of 11 family members with 4 granddaughters ages 5-8 thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Allesandra was wonderful and engaging with the children. She also provided many facts and answers for the adults in our group. The no waiting in line quick access to the Vatican museums was great as there were huge lines of people waiting to enter.

    We needed a tour that would capture our children’s imagination and concentration (they are 8 and 12) but also inform and educate all of us. Giulia was absolutely fantastic in providing the perfect balance in this regard and we would recommend this tour to anyone of any age.

    As the entrance to the Vatican was full of people, finding a guide Simona was difficult, but she found us. The Vatican has a precious collection. As it is a special place, we recommend that people with children in particular guide you. We participated in Kids and Family Tour. The boys were two teenagers, but the tour guide Simona was very enthusiastic to explain, so the kids enjoyed themselves very much. The children started fighting on the way, but she was very calm and perseverance guide. We were able to hear stories about various precious collections from her. Thank you very much!

    Serena was an amazing guide. Not only was she knowledgeable but she was wonderful with my kids. They were very comfortable with her and she brought nice goodies for them including an activity book that she created. Highly recommend.
