We were very lucky because we had Antonio (the one and only! The one that speaks Japanese!!!) as our guide. It was definitely the best tour I have experienced. Unique experience. Antonio was excellent. The information we received and the way he communicated with us will be unforgettable. We came with my little son from Greece. I was afraid that the child would get tired and bored for so many hours, but really it was so pleasant and so interesting that when we said goodbye to him three hours later, we were really sad!!!Thank you so much Antonio!!!!

We had booked an evening tour from 7:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. This was highly recommended as the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums were not that crowded. On the contrary - one had the impression that one was almost alone with the guide. Additionally, we were a small group of 6 people. Which of course was also an advantage.

Marilena was our tour guide and she was brilliant! She went into great detail and would have liked to continue, but there was not enough time. She loves her work and the art! She integrated us! What I found a bit stupid was that people were always pushing from behind, but Marilena can't help it! The tour is very informative and I can recommend it to everyone.
