Marina was very informative, competent and an absolute pleasure to have as a guide. If you can find her not through Presto that would be good. We booked the 8.00 am tour to avoid the crowds. For some unexplained reason(overbooked?) we were bounced to 1.30. We questioned this, and did not actually accept this deferred time, but we never got a response leaving us unsure of our booking and not happy as we had other plans, and had lost the early, before hours timing that we felt we had paid extra for. Presto are not the cheapest out there. Get Marina if you can. Dump Presto

A great private tour! Very informative! We
Had Marina as a tour guide and she was excellent. She showed us everything of importance in the Vatican museums and, the Sistine chapel and St Peters. A fantastic experience.

We had long put off doing a tour of the Vatican museums because of the crowds.We heard about Presto Tours from friends,so decided to give it a try. What a wonderful experience! We chose the semi private early morning tour that started one hour before the official opening of the museums. Our guide Jason met us right on time and we got in almost immediately. Jason knew exactly how to avoid the mad crush of the large tours and led us through flawlessly. The added plus was that he is currently working on his doctorate in art history and was extremely knowledgeable on all facets of the museum. I would highly recommend this tour and would certainly suggest that you ask for Jason as your guide if he is available.

We took a three hour tour of the Vatican and St Peters last Monday, 7/10/2016 through Presto tours. Emilio, our guide, was one of the most knowledgeable people on world history I've ever met. At every turn he would put a statue or painting into it's historical context adding pieces of information not many people would know. Be aware this is a walking tour covering at least six miles and ten floors of steps. Exhausting in the 100 degree heat this week in Rome

We took the 8am Vatican complex tour (museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's). We were lucky to not have purchased a private tour, but ended up being the only two people on the tour that morning. Julia was our guide and was great. She was friendly, knowledgable, and spoke English well. She answered all our questions and designed the tour to meet our particular interests.
We did not go to the Sistine Chapel first, like many other reviewers did. When we made it to the chapel it was already very crowded, but inside the chapel there is no talking, so the crowds didn't really bother us -- we had no issues concentrating on the art and taking it in.
We would definitely recommend Presto Tours and Julia!!
