Maria was great! A warm personality with an incredible wealth of knowledge. She conveyed the gravity of the Vatican but also had a sense of fun. We really enjoyed her company and got information which was delivered with passion. A great afternoon and one well spent.

Fantastic experience in Rome! Slob an his team are super friendly and very well connected in Vatican City, everything went really smooth and quick, no lines, no waitings just Ciao Ragazzi and we were right in the heart of Vatican. I really enjoyed the tour, we were a very small group and we had enough time to ask questions about the specific places we have visited. I would definitely book another guide again and spend another day in Rome!

Abbiamo avuto il piacere di essere guidate da Eva e Slob. Che dire, è stata una visita bella, interessante, approfondita e simpatica. Eva racconta con grande passione ed è bravissima a catapultarti nelle epoche passate. È stato un vero piacere, consigliamo a tutti.

I had a blast, the Vatican was empty and I was able to get photos and the real experience. I couldn’t imagine seeing the Vatican any other way.. (COVD-19 is reason the Vatican was empty not a lot of tourist). The staff was waiting for me and very polite.
