Great tour!
Oct 2019
Claudia was great! She met us promptly at the entrance and we proceeded right in skipping the very long lines. As it turned out, we had Claudia to ourselves for a private tour (not expected). She was very knowledgeable and able to adjust the tour and level of detail for our interest. I highly recommend this tour. You won't be disappointed.

Cristiana is the best!
Oct 2019
Our tour of the Vatican was a wonderful experience. Our guide Cristiana was outstanding. She was great fun to be with, provided great insight and details for all parts of the museums' history, art, sculpture, and even papal politics. She can clearly provide information in as much detail as you can absorb. My wife has early onset Alzheimer's and Cristiana made a point to be sensitive to her pace and the things that interested her.....much appreciated by us. We would certainly engage Tours of the Vatican and Cristiana again on a future visit.

The best tour, loved it.
Oct 2019 • Friends
We loved this tour it was way better than expected. Our guide Thomas was incredibly well informed and very engaging, there was nothing he didn't know!!

We skipped all the queues and gained such a good understanding of this amazing place thanks to Thomas. It was great being in a small group as we could ask all our questions at any point.

If I could do this tour again I would. Loved it.

Thanks for a great day. 😁

Excellent tour! We skipped the very long lines (and we visited off season, and still the lines were very long!) Our guide, Laura, was amazing. Just the right amount of information, interesting, and very pleasant. We had a great time, and will use this tour again when we return in the spring!! Highly recommend.

Great Small Group Vatican Tour
My husband and I toured the Vatican & St Peter Basilica with just 2 other people and our wonderful tour guide Claudia. I have to say that we had the best tour group! Many other groups were very large and needed headphones to be able to hear their guides. With our small group we could hear Claudia just fine and we’re able to ask questions. We were able to enter the Vatican easily and quickly without waiting at all. Claudia was very knowledgable about all things Vatican, from the Popes, to the artists, to the architecture, you name it! We were there on a very busy afternoon, and our small group was easily able to maneuver through the crowds. We had a beautiful, quality experience, and I highly recommend Claudia as a tour guide and Tours of the Vatican with Francisco and his team/Raphael Tours.

The tour was fantastic!! We had a great guide, Chiara, who made the tour all but boring. Her knowledge was incredible and she shared it so enthusiastically that the 3-hour tour went by way too fast!

Amazing, Educational Tour with Massimiliano!
Aug 2019
Massimiliano was our tour guide and he was absolutely fantastic. He was incredibly knowledgeable and did a wonderful job explaining lots of different stories and histories of the Vatican. Appreciated him bringing along his iPad to show us additional facts and bring back pictures when we would move from room to room. Also, because we were a small group, he would let us pull over and ask questions about specific art and things we were seeing. Having a small group for your tour really elevates the experience and allows you to move at your own speed. Thanks so much to Massimiliano for an incredible Vatican experience.
