I believe GG was the name of the tour guide, he received his PhD from UCLA. He made this experience absolutely wonderful. His knowledge, expertise, and stories made this a tour we will never forget. He was also so great at maneuvering our group. He noticed I was short and positioned me so I could see the things he was pointing out. He was also hilarious and was the reason we loved this experience so much.

Giulietta was an amazing tour guide who ensured that we were all having a great time. I would highly recommend booking the early morning tour to avoid crowds. The breakfast fell a little short and I wouldn’t recommend having it included, however, by booking the breakfast one we were in a tour group with only four other people which made for a very personal experience instead of being in a large crowd.

Flavia was so amazing. Not only was she a wealth of knowledge, but she also was entertaining during the tour. Absolutely fantastic!!

This experience exceeded our expectations. The early access to the Sistine Chapel was breathtaking. If you're investing in a trip to Italy and to the Vatican you should definitely do this. Our tour guide, Giuletta, really connected with us, had a great sense of humor and answered all of our questions. She was an artist and had been part of a team who restored the front of St. Peter's Basilica! Giulietta, if you're reading this, we did try your restaurant recommendation (La Fraschetta) and it was excellent! So glad we took this amazing tour. Oh, and the breakfast was so much better than we expected!
