A Recent Review of this tour

Manuela is a wonderful guide. Her wealth of info is phenomenal. She was prompt & incredibly helpful. I wouldn't recommend seeing the Vatican without a private guide. Lines are long. We bypassed them all. Groups were large & noisy. We bypassed all of that. The pictorial guides Manuela has are both education & interesting. Manuela knows every nook & cranny of the Vatican (probably of all of Rome too). We wish had hired her for our tour of Rome. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I'd give her 10 stars if I could.
