    Fe was our tour guide and she could not have made it better, unless we got to meet the Pope himself.

    We had 3 kids with us- 14, 12, and 9 girls. She kept them completely engaged and really catered to them They were asking tons of questions and she was talking to them at a level they really understood. She played both the parents and kids back and forth so everyone could be part of it.

    She honestly made the tour a complete success for us. We really enjoyed her time and would love to use her again for our next visit. She was that good.

    One of the best tours I’ve ever had. Tour guide was very engaging with the kids, but also kept the adults interested. Highly recommend.

    Analisa was very knowledgeable and paid close attention to the kids....Thank you so much for your expertise and fun!

    Our Vatican tour for kids was exactly what we hoped for and so much more! Matteo was an Incredible guide. From the first moments we knew we were in excellent hands and he followed through our whole tour. He explained everything we saw and all the history of the Vatican to our children (ages 7 and 9) perfectly, we were in shock how well Matteo interacted with all of us. We all saythis was the highlight of our 6 day trip to Rome! Thank you a million times over, Matteo. To anyone considering this tour-book it!! You will not regret it!

    Our guide was attentive to our 10
    and 8 year olds. Good choice of rooms to visit in the museum. Main challenge was the crowds, which the guide cannot control.

    We had a wonderful private tour with Angelica from Vivicos International Travel. The tour was just for myself, my husband and my 11 year old son. The tour was well-paced and included the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Angelica was enthusiastic, warm, incredibly knowledgeable, kept us all engaged and tailored the tour for us, giving us choices along the way. For example, she gave us the choice of going to the gallery containing all of the papal vehicles, which we really enjoyed. She also brought an ipad to show us images of the different popes, what the white marble sculptures must have looked like when they were still colorfully painted, etc. We cannot recommend Angelica highly enough.

    We had our tour with Matteo yesterday and it definitely lived up to our expectations! He kept our 10 and 13 year old engaged while expertly guiding us around the very large and crowded Vatican museums. Our visit without him would have been very frustrating, we managed to get an excellent overview in 3 hours which was probably the max for our kids. He was informative and friendly...overall it was money well spent!

    Our guide was exceptional and connected well with our ten year old, making a tour of the Vatican interesting and engaging, with great little titbits that included history and personalities of great artists and the different popes. Needless to say that the adults learnt something as well. Ask for Angelica she is knowledgeable and has children of her own - so great with children.

    But man was the Vatican packed so at times it was hard to navigate with small children. Our guide was great trying to keep our oldest (5) entertained and engaged in the tour. Was able to answer any question we had.

    I loved the tour, Lisa or Alisa I can't remember her name.. She was awesome, she made this experience unique and unforgettable for my son (12) and Daughter (4) She involved them so much they felt comfortable asking question and she was able to answer all of them. My son wanted to see the prior popes were buried and she offered to show us right away. We were able to get holy water and we even got tickets to be part of the pope's audience. I think she went the extra mile to make our experience fabulous. I would recommend this tour and specially with her as a tour guide. Best investment..
