Marco was the name of our tour guide. He was the best tour guide we have had with "Get Your Guide" to date! It was the English tour. He was friendly, engaged all the other participates, and his knowledge of all aspects of the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel was just incredible. He took time so everyone could absorb the many wonders and explained in detail what we were seeing step-by-step. He was willing to take questions during the tour and at the end, stayed a bit longer of additional ones. I would recommend Marco to anyone who is interested in the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel Tour.

The visit was very interesting and adapted to our request. Marco was a great guide who was able to mix knowledge, culture and humor while leading us to reflect on certain works. I highly recommend. My daughter didn't want a guide and wanted to cancel but in the end she changed her mind with no regrets.

Guided tour carried out by Marco, a young but already experienced and very very pleasant guide. Someone who loves what he does and is passionate about all the wonders he makes us discover. Of course, the guided tour format means that you can't stop longer in certain places, but the contribution of his explanations is really enriching and it's worth it. In short, a privileged moment in a unique place!
