Great guide

Francesco was great with our kids, setting them tasks to find things in both the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. It was a good thing to book a skip the line tour as it was very busy. To be honest, it's tough to get our 10 and 8 year olds enthusiastic about a museum of statues, art and antiques.... and the 2hr tour was their limit... but without Francesco I think they would've struggled.

Claudia was a fantastic guide! She was so patient and engaging with my four children. She asked questions throughout the tour and was incredibly flexible. She took the time to walk us through St. Peter's Basilica even though our time had technically ended, and then helped us find a lunch spot near the Vatican as well. We highly recommend Claudia as a tour guide!

Amazing experience for kids

This tour was amazing for the whole family. Our guide Alessandra noticed Right away that our 9 and 11 year love and are extremely knowledgeable about the Greek and Roman gods and she used this to help them explore the Vatican Museums. She was able to find fun ways to engage our six year old as well. She was very attentive to when the kids needed to rest or when they needed an emergency snack break and found a way to make that happen. She made a puzzle out of the Sistine chapel and explained the whole story. Then when we went into the chapel she made a silent matching game that kept the kids very interested in the art work. I would highly recommend this tour for families with children.

We met our tour guide and were the only ones on the tour, so it was essentially a private tour. The tour guide had a book with pictures and showed our two girls (ages 5 and 8) what to expect when we went inside. During the tour, he spoke directly to the girls, but my wife and I also learned a lot. It was really well done. Really great guide! We took several tours while in Italy and this was the best.

Everything was easy and efficient, the booking, the meeting and most importantly the tour. Our guide made sure that all the children and the adults were engaged and informed, without being dry and boring. The lady was incredibly knowledgable, flexible and friendly and quickly engaged with us all. We highly recommend the tour.
