Exclusive VIP Tour without crowds and summer heat (from Mid-April to October)
If you prefer a comprehensive and exclusive Vatican tour in a quiet and stress-free environment, this one is what you are looking for, because it allows you to visit and to admire one of the richest collections of historical art in the world without the crowds you could get in the morning and the summer heat! The lack of crowds is undoubtedly a positive advantage of this tour.

Dino was one of the best guides we have ever had. He made the tour fun and had an extreme amount of knowledge of the subject. I had another tour of the Vatican years ago but this tour and guide was so much better and informative. He also loves his job and city and it shows in his tour. He also help us get back to the Metro and and made sure we were on the right station and train. When in Rome have Dino for a tour guide and you can't go wrong.
