Lucia was an excellent guide, professional, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. All of our group really enjoyed it (despite one being feeling quite unwell), we learnt so many things that we would never have found out otherwise. She highlighted the most interesting and important things, and was always open to questions. I would definitely recommend this tour & Lucia as a guide! Excellent value.

I was a bit worried about this tour because the timing didn't work out for me and it seemed a bit short (I booked the highlights tour of just the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel that was set for 2 hours). However, Chilara(?) (aka Claire) took the time -- even more than our alotted 2 hours -- to explain as much as she could and give us the most info possible. She made sure none of us were bothered by the tour taking longer, and in fact we all wanted it to keep going. She has a tour guide license, which many Italian tour guides don't have as the license rule isn't enforced. This means she knew what she was talking about, and even gave us inside knowledge on a variety of things. Her passionate, honest and bubbly personality made the tour great. Would definitely recommend!

Made the tour 3rd of August. A really hot day, but our guide Luigi made the trip great anyway. His knowledge about everything that has to do with the vatican history and building was amazing. He also had a great personality and presented all information in a really interesting way. It made us really pay attention. We strongly recommend When in Rome tours and Luigi :)

We had Chiara as our guide for the afternoon. We passed by many group tours and the people therein looked bored. Confused. Somewhat rushed. In the 5 hours we had with our guide, nothing was boring, nothing was confusing, nothing was rushed. We had time enough to relax, to learn, and to appreciate. This was an EPIC tour, in fact I don't recall it as being a tour, rather an exclusive experience in one of the most beautiful exhibitions imaginable.

Our hotel was across the road from the Vatican Museums and we had a good look at all the people waiting to get in and all the street tour agencies collecting groups of tourists - this really put us off! Searching for an evening option made sense for us and this tour was a real find. We believe that less than several hundred people were in the museums at the same time as ourselves and when we reached the Sistine Chapel, it was not busy at all and very peaceful. Some of the rooms we had access to were empty, just us! For the price, this was excellent value.
