This was my 2nd tour with Grant of the Vatican Museum and Saint Peter's. I visited in May of 2017 and brought my adult son to visit this year. Grant's knowledge and sense of humor made the tour one of the best I've experienced!

We booked 3 different family tours with What a Life, and they were great. We did the Forum and Coliseum, and our guide was trained as an archaeologist. He gave lots of information, but not too much. We also went to the Catacombs and Ostia...More

You are right that with our group tours being limited to no more than 12 per guide, they are quite like a private tour! Many guests however prefer to have the ability to customise their tours and go at a different pace so they might...More
