Q: Does this tour always include St. Peter's Basilica?

Q: Does the tour go directly inside without waiting in any line?

Q: What are the chances my tour will be canceled or the Vatican will close something .
A: We run the tour rain or shine all year round. Although it is rare, sometimes part of the Vatican City closes for special religious events. If an area normally covered on a tour is closed, our guide will still provide explanations of the closed areas from outside. Plus, we will show you an extra site or gallery to compensate.
Q: I have some doubts about my mobility. Is this tour right for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, this is your best bet for a Vatican tour. Private Vatican tours are are more easily customized to the needs of people with reduced-mobility.

A: Cover your knees and shoulders, there's no need to dress like the people who live in Vatican City, just avoid short pants, dresses and tank tops. If you're a woman and you are wearing something that bares your shoulders, bring a long a shall or sweater.

Our driver arrived on time and was very kind and professional. He dropped us off where we met our guide, Jad, who gave a wonderful tour an hour before the Vatican opened. Jad was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and gave us time for quick bathroom breaks and a chance to buy a few souvenirs. Highly recommend Jad and this tour!..more

We felt as if we really needed to have a tour group for us to learn more about Rome and Venice while we were in these cities. We had a private tour of the Vatican, as well as a tour of St Mark's and Venice. The tour guides were absolutely first-rate: most of them either locals or expats with a long personal history in the area, and all of them with an excellent command of English so there we could understand everything (plus learn a lot about the local culture, arts, etc.) What I can say is this: The Roman Guy helped make our vacation AWESOME, and can't recommend them enough. When we go back to Italy, we are going to once again look at The Roman Guy offerings and book more tours!..more
