private vip tour
i like the way the received and treated us. it is my first time in rome on a business meet.. i always wanted to have a visit to these important places in rome like vatican and colosseum. then when i landed on this site and i have opted this tour as this was the only one available for the time. i really appreciate their service and the quality of guides they keep and they offered me vatican tour for discounted price after this. No regrets at all. thank you enjoyrome team.

Tolle Reiseführerin
Marilena war eine tolle Reiseführerin. Mit viel Wissen, Freude, Humor und Begeisterung führte sie uns durch die Tour. Sie lenkte den Blick auf Details, die wir sonst nicht wahrgenommen hätten. Leider leidet natürlich der Genuss der Kunstschätze unter dem Massenandrang und der knappen Zeit. Damit muss man leben. Wer Rom besucht, muß / will das gesehen haben. Aber für das Museum bräuchte man eigentlich viel mehr Muße - in einigen Räumen wird man vom Personal ständig aufgefordert, weiterzugehen - stehen bleiben war nicht erlaubt. Aber dafür kann Marilena nichts. Trotzdem eine lohnenswerte Tour - reibungslose Organisation.

THe best ever
Hace dos años realice el mismo tour al Vaticano pero ayer con Raúl fue el Mejor. Enseño mucha información que desconocía y con su toque de humor hizo la historia y la religión más amena

Super Experience
Very good experience. Joined the Vatican City tour with Francesco, very good explanation and guide very knowledgable. Did not wait more than 20 minutes in the queue and tour was very flowing. Well done.
