We were delighted to have a small group of 6 of which we were 4. We managed the crowds
comfortably and were impressed with how knowledgeable Rochelle was. In fact one of us who had previously had a private tour said she learned so much more with this passionate and energetic guide who made the spaces and art come alive with her descriptions. She timed the tour so we were able to see the changing of the Swiss Guard which was a special treat!

This was my third time to the Vatican but my last time was ten years ago and I was overwhelmed by the crowds of tourists and groups. I came to bring my daughter for her first time and wished I hadn’t. The crowds were too much and it was very difficult to appreciate it. Our guide Patricia was terrific and very calm and patient with a few irate members in our group. My daughter and I really enjoyed meeting her and I am impressed with the quality of the tour guides that ArtViva work with. If you really want to do this tour I recommend a private very early morning one.
