What Our Customers Say...


Best Tour Ever!

Our guide Elaine provided us with a fantastic informative tour of the Vatican. The early access is highly recommended. You really do get in before the crowds. The breakfast was amazing and certainly kept us going through the tour. Highly recommend and will definitely return to see more of the Vatican, hopefully with Elaine as our guide as she was amazing.

Early Entry Tour SO worth it!

Elaine was AMAZING!!! She was very funny and great with kids as well as beyond knowledgable!!! She was able to answer every question and was super kind! We really enjoyed her prep talk about the Sistine Chapel and we knew exactly what we were looking at!!!! Highly recommend the tour!!! We had no crowds inside!!!!

Matteo is wonderful

By far the best tour/tour guide i have ever had.Matteo was engaging and had a way of explaining history that is unsurpassed.By the end of your we were family. Thanks for my best experience in Rome.

Top notch! Loved it!

The entire staff were amazing! Espressos made to order. We were in a small group with Giuliano - very intelligent, personable and knowledgeable. Best tour guide we’ve had! First class organization. Look no further, this is the tour company you want. Believe me, as I am selective and these guys were exceptional.

AMAZING - Thanks Anna

Anna was our guide and she was very knowledgeable, entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. She keep our interest and informed us about the little things that normally would be missed on a tour. Other tour companies should take note of What A Life Tours is doing and use it as a model of how their tours should be.

The Colosseum brought to life

When it came to touring the Colosseum, I would've had it no other way. Mario was spot on, his rendition was incredible, and he took time and care to interact personally with us. He is a master craftsman carving you back through the layers of history with humor and wit, never letting the excitement drop. Thank you for bringing my favorite place to life so uniquely.

What a special experience

We were so fortunate to have Marcello as our guide. He shared stories, using colorful metaphors along with immense knowledge of the history of Rome, Italy, the Popes - always with charming details about the gods, goddesses and emperors depicted in the art. His detailed explanation of Raphael’s School of Athens and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel brought them to life.

Excellent Underground Coliseum tour

We had Carlotta on our small group tour of 10. She is exceptional and so knowledgeable! She kept our group moving and made our tour a real learning experience. There were two young kids in our group and she was great with them. All in all I would definitely recommend this tour. They were good with communication, personable and fun.

Elaine was fantastic

From the meeting point to the end of the tour we felt like we were in the best hands. Elaine personalized our tour to include everything we wanted to see, engaging our teenage boys as well! She truly cared about our tour and we learned so many interesting facts that made our experience even more special. We will forever cherish the time we spent!

Rome’s Iconic sights

You don’t know crowds until you have seen the queues at the Vatican. Arriving in the early morning with an expert guide to smooth the chaos made our Vatican visit an efficient and pleasant experience. Guiliano was calm and upbeat as he negotiated the lines of people and guided us through to the best positions. He is very informative and knowledgeable as well. We were very happy with our experience.
