What people are saying about Raphael Rooms

We were completely satisfied with the tour. Unfortunately our German speaking tour was canceled 2 days before. We were contacted and offered other alternative tours. Unfortunately, we weren't in Rome for long and we already had some other excursions planned, so we only had the option of taking the booked tour on the planned day in English instead. But it was totally okay. The lady who guided us spoke good, clear English, so that we could still understand everything. She has a very extensive knowledge, told us everything in a very interesting way and showed us everything important and also left a lot of time with us to stay somewhere in between. The Vatican was very busy but you will probably always have that. We never had to queue or wait anywhere, it was very well organized.

Antonio was THE BEST! He’s an Italian with so much enthusiasm and knowledge and passion for the art and the history of this era. We were so lucky and feel grateful to have gotten a tour with him. My husband described him as the ‘upper echelon’ of tour guides! Wonderful experience and I highly recommend.

It was truly amazing. The wonders and beauty in the museum and Sistine Chapel so extraordinary that it would be possible to spend a year and not see them all. Locating the tour was the easiest of all tours we enjoyed over two weeks. Antonio, our guide, was also great.

Antonio was very knowledgable about the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Would recommend taking the tour to get the most out of your visit!

Very well organized tour. Claudia was an engaging, confident, and informative guide, keeping us moving through the increasingly busy museums.
