Rosalba and a driver picked us up at our hotel. We arrived at the entrance to the Vatican Museums shortly before 5 PM (the museums close at 4 pm). After passing a quick security check Rosalba showed us the mostly empty rooms of the Museums (save for some guards and occasional

Our private tour guide Barbara met with us at our hotel lobby around 14:00 saturday in the afternoon. We asked her if she is able to arrange a 3 hours private tour to Vatikan. We were late but she did her best to arrange tickets and everything. She was great! I will tell all my

Denis Pasolini arrived at my hotel a bit early for my evening tour of the Vatican and I am so grateful he did. He used that extra time to take me to the Palladium, as well as another famous square and fountain (spaced on the name but it was beautiful). The tour of the Vatican

Responded 30 Sep 2019
Dear friend, It's more than great to hear you enjoyed our time together so much, it was so nice touring with you and sharing the fascinating stories of this amazing city! You got the point when mentioning that touring with a private guide provides an extra ease and comfort to your holidays: it would be sad to wander among the streets and monuments of Rome without unveiling the countless stories, secrets and anecdotes they hide. Here's what we private guides are here for: to make your Roman movie set come true! Grazie! Denis

I can't tell you how awesome our private tour was for us. Roberta was phenomenal and I would highly highly recommend her - she was so passionate, moved as fast or as slow as we wanted, had so much information that we would not have learned in a larger group or going on our own.
