Very quick at getting back to you on questions. We ended up booking the private family rome tour and the "pre-opening" vatican tour. The family tour was structured as a "Treasure Hunt." Our tour guide did a REALLY good job engaging our children. It was really hot that day and even then the kids did not complain. The information was interesting and we had a good time. The "Pre-Opening" Vatican tour is a MUST. You need to get up early but it is totally worth it!!! When we got to the Sistine Chapel, there were maybe 30 - 40 people in there (which is REALLY low). It was so peaceful and not crowded; easily walking around to see the ceiling. It was a great way to take in Michelangelo's masterpiece. Highly recommended!!..more

We were concerned that he couldn't stay engaged for a tour, but our guide, Laura, was outstanding! She brought expert knowledge of the sites, but was able to connect with our son too. We were impressed!
The treasure hunt through the sites was the highlight of his trip. Days later, he's still excited about it.
We had wondered if the tour would be worth the money, and believe me, it was! ..more
