Vatican Tour with Giuliano

Giuliano made the Vatican tour a great experience. Detailed explanations with humor and passion. Even our 14 years old son (real teenager) was fascinated and had a good time. Very recommendable...

Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel tour

My wife and I attended one of your tours of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel on Tuesday April 21. Our tour guide Maggie turned out to be an extremely pleasant person, and to our judgment she had all the necessary qualifications. She also presented it all with great enthusiasm and dedication, which really made the tour a highlight of our visit to Rome.

Ciao, I just want to express our gratitude to your guide Luigi. He made our morning visit in the Vatican a real hit. He had the answers in a cunning and humerous way to all our questions - even those we hadn't asked. Take good care of him. The man is a walking diamond.
