Private Vatican Museum, St. Peters Basilica and Free Time

Best Tour Ever!
November 11, 2023
This excursion was amazing! The driver, Andrea, spoke English and was most welcoming and accommodating. The tour guide, Adzura, was so nice, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We spent 3 hours at the Vatican, including the museum, the Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. After that, Andrea took us to a restaurant for lunch and spent additional time driving us around to different highlights of Rome, after which he took us to the hotel. I liked that it was just for the two of us and we could go at our own pace since I have some mobility issues. This was worth every penny and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Amazing experience

Our driver Vlad was excellent and extremely professional. Daniella was our guide and she made our day far better than we could expect. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the entire city not just the stops we made. While we were driving she continuously pointed out interesting parts of the city. This tour was definitely a highlight of our trip.

Outstanding Plus!

Only three of us in the Mercedes Van. Danielle, our driver, was beyond expectations and very courteous. After the Vatican tour, he took us to everyplace we wanted and some gems of his. Every aspect of our Vatican tour by AAllessia was outstanding. Couldn't have been better. Five Stars and definitely recommended.

Leonardo was our fantastic driver! He understood our physical limitations and adapted the tour of Rome to our needs . We saw everything we wanted. Anna was our guide in the Vatican and she also understood our needs and tailored the tour to us. We appreciated her knowledge and help.

Vatican tour review from Costco
November 28, 2019
There were 8 of us in this tour and 5 as family members. Thomas as we call him for short is punctual. He was very polite and receptive and he drives a Volswagen Van that is clean and presentable and comfortable. He took us to Florence first to visit Leaning tower of Pisa while there's no traffic. Thomas is young and English is not fluent bu understandable. His not very knowledgeable but very good driver and tries to give us information and apologizes if he's not sure of the answer. He then dropped us for a visit in France and our tour guide is Viola who is very informative. Thomas picked us up after 2 hours in France and got caught in traffic but we had plenty of time before we get back in our ship.

Excellent private tour
November 05, 2018
This tour was the high-light of our trip. We were picked up at the pier. Being a group of 10, we had our own mini bus with driver and guide. We visited the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Forum, etc. Another tour guide showed us the Vatican. Both guides and the driver were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent excursion in Rome
October 05, 2018
I wanted to get the most out of our few hours we had in Rome so booked this private tour. It was great! I was so happy with what we did and where we went. The quick access to the Vatican was well worth the price alone! Our “Driver In Rome” Marco was so nice and very informative. We will definitely book another excursion!

Everything we could have asked for and then some.

Our Private Vatican tour was fantastic. Our driver, Marco, took us to some really interesting places to see sights that others rarely see (we even saw Matthew Modine at one site). Anna, our tour guide at the Vatican, was incredible. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the history we were exploring was awesome. She really provided a great experience and kept us drawn in throughout the tour.

The rome excursion was truly awesome....Our private driver was very professional and assisted the six of with making the best decision on how to spend our fre time.The tour guide for the Vatican was extremely educational and pleasant. My only request would be to allow for a little more time to take pictures.I would highly recommend this excursion. It was truly worth the money.

Rome and Vatican tour
May 22, 2017
This day was absolutely outstanding! Our driver Francesco was wonderful! He was equipped with a charger for our camera that suddenly died while we were at the Coliseum and he lent us his IPad to take pictures that he was going to send to us. Our guide, Anna, was just outstanding! She was so knowledgeable of the Vatican and the Vatican Museum and the Basilica that I could have listened to her all day! She really was amazing! If you're taking a private tour I would ask for Anna if at all possible! She was truly impressive and Francesco was just a great guy all around as well!

Private Car/Vatican City
December 15, 2016
42 Days in Europe & our best excursion was AAA Private Car through all of Vatican City. It was worthy the price. Both our Driver & Tour Guide were extremely educated in the history of Rome & the Vatican. It was so enjoyable to hear this history while standing there looking at the historical sites & artifacts. I would differently recommend this excursion - especially if it is your 1st time to Rome.

Rome in a day!
August 18, 2016
Fantastic! We had just one day to spend in Rome and our driver and guide made sure we made the most of our time. Angela guided us through the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's and it was amazing. Max was our driver and he couldn't have been better. He made sure we toured the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain & drove by the Forum, Spanish Steps, Via Condotti, etc. He was amazing! I have already recommended both to friends traveling to Rome in October.

Very informative and educational. Even though quite a bit of walking and stairs, the Guide was responsive to our needs to rest or get water. And the driver was helpful and flexible by driving around within the time and traffic alloted.

Trip of a lifetime
November 19, 2010
Our guide for the Vatican Museum was also a archeologist with a wonderful knowledge of art. They certainly took their time with us as opposed to the large groups we saw being shoved through the museum. My group of 41 people unanimously described it as the trip of a lifetime. Best price, best guides, best buses, best excursions, picking you I'm brilliant.
