Honored to have this tour guide
Jun 2019
This tour was the only one we pre-booked. We committed to not overbooking our selves and enjoying being in Rome, Italy. We never imagined we would feel honored to have been able to have Lorenzo - a true maestro - as our guide. His passion for his field of expertise was unmatched other guides we observed during the tour. He was considerate of our ignorance and dedicated to helping us appreciate the true beauty and significance of every aspect of these ostentatious places. Thanks so much Lorenzo!

Dear GoldenTravelers8015, Thank you so much for your WONDERFUL review! We are so happy to read that you enjoyed so much Lorenzo's incredible knowledge as well as his friendly company. He is an Art Historian himself and he is really passionate about his subject: I am sure he was really happy to share with you his love for the art treasures of Rome. Thank you so much, we hope to see you soon back in Rome! Francesca

Absolutely the best way to see the Vatican!
Nov 2019
I cannot recommend this tour enough! Our tour guide, John, was so accommodating and knowledgeable. This is a lengthy tour but I am convinced it is the only way to really see and appreciate the Vatican, St. Peter's, and the Sistine Chapel.
As mentioned, John, our guide was amazing. He had the answers to every question we asked. At one point, we asked if we could see a specific piece of art that we had heard about and he made it happen. Additionally, he was able to get us into a part of the Vatican museum that had been roped off for us to just peek in and see for a few moments without everyone else rushing around us. It was very special and so much appreciated. Just seeing the Vatican and Sistine Chapel are one thing, but this guided tour (and especially John) really put things over the top. Thank you thank you thank you!

We are truly grateful to you for your recommendation of not only our Vatican tour but also of your guide, John. The Vatican Museums are a maze of corridors and rooms filled with treasures and other than easily getting lost, one can equally easily miss gems which only a seasoned guide would know to point out. Being accompanied by such an educated gentleman - who is also tall which helps as he can often see across the crowds in order to gauge where they're heading so we can go in other direction - makes a Vatican adventure so much more pleasurable. How lovely that you had a very specific piece of art you wanted to see and he was able make sure we were able to pass by, John always goes above and beyond the call of duty making him really one of the best guides on the circuit and we are very proud to have him continue to be part of our TEam! Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for such a terrific review, John will be so very pleased to see it. PIps

A very captivating Tour - Highly recommend Enrica Armentante
Dec 2019
Enrica kept us engaged the entire time and we learned so much in a short 5 hour tour. We were so moved, we purchased several books to learn more about the Vatican artwork. We will be making plans to return to Rome and take more Through Eternity Tours. We are especially interested in the Angels and Demons Tour. Thank you for making our 15th Wedding Anniversary Vacation our best Vacation ever.

We never tire of reading feedback about our enchanting Enrica and so happy you enjoyed her company during your stay in Rome and at the Vatican. Her passion for archaeological and art history is evident and she loves nothing more than to share her extensive knowledge with her guests. The Vatican Museums play host to so many treasures, it takes a real professional to know which pieces are most worth showing you and Enrica goes over and beyond to ensure that you leave us with a better understanding of the history and eager to come back for more: your review shows us that she achieved exactly that! Yes, be sure to contact us when you are planning your next trip, our Angels and Demons private tour is a magical itinerary where we visit some of Rome's most stunning churches such as Santa Maria della Vittoria, which is often sadly overlooked by visitors, it's quite something! Thank you for your wonderful review which Enrica will be thrilled to see - many congratulations from us all and we are truly honoured you chose to spend such a momentous occasion with us. Pips

Vatican Tour is better with a guide!
Nov 2019
On our recent trip to Rome, we were so fortunate to have selected Through Eternity Tours for our Vatican visit. The Vatican is just overwhelming with history and artifacts. We had the most fantastic tour guide, Guia Grandi. With her help, we understood the important context and history and were guided to the most important and interesting paintings, sculptures and tapestries. Her studies in art and her obvious love of the artwork made everything come to life. Guia was a pleasure to spend 5 hours with and we learned so much with her great storytelling. When I go back, I would request her by name!

Dear Luckybay2014, Thank you very much for your excellent review: we truly love receiving reviews like yours! We are truly grateful that you took the time to write such a lovely feedback. Guia is indeed an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and skilled. With her Master's Degree in art History she has the perfect background for showing around the Vatican and describing its never ending treasures. We are glad that you appreciated also her talent as a storyteller, she is very good at putting everything into context, so that instead of seeing just "pieces" and dates, you are able to see the bigger picture and follow her narration which is always very interesting and engaging. Thank you for choosing us, we hope to see you soon back on our tours, maybe also in Florence, Pompeii or Venice! Arrivederci, Francesca

Vatican Sistine Chapel and St Peters Basilica
Really good tour , our guide Eugenia really covered everything in detail and brought it all to life Thank you
Written 12 October 2019
This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
It takes an experienced and talented guide to not only navigate these busy museums but also what parts are the highlights and most important historically to show our groups and Eugenia absolutely fits the bill. An outstanding professional who has walked these corridors for many years, she knows all the best routes to avoid the largest crowd but the main artworks to include and how to untangle and reconstruct the complex history of the Catholic Church presenting it to her guests in a manner which is easy to follow and fun to learn about. Not an easy feat but Eugenia does it with such flair and ease, the perfect companion for our Vatican Museums tour. Thank you truly for your 5-star review!

Rome in a day with Thomas Robertson
Sep 2019
Remarkable day with a extremely knowledgeable guide. We felt we got as good a glimpse of Rome in a day as possible, including Thomas’ interpretation and insight of events connected with the physical structures. Great anecdotes too.
Written 19 September 2019
This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
Thomas is one of Rome's greatest narrators, with skills easily measuring up to the famous ancient Roman orators such as Cicero, Seneca and Catone! He is fantastic at unravelling Rome's complicated past and putting it back together in a way that all those spending the day with him can easily follow and understand, leaving his guests with many happy memories and much to ponder over, certainly how soon they can come back and visit us! Thank you very much for choosing Through Eternity during your time in Italy and for your wonderful review! Pips

A Tour to Remember!
May 2019 • Couples
Tatiana was INCREDIBLE. We booked a private Vatican Tour for our group of four on May 22, 2019. This was the most wonderful experience. Tatiana was extremely knowledgeable and engaging during the tour. She navigated the museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica with such expertise. I highly recommend Through Eternity Tours – they are a wonderful company to work with and made the booking very easy. They delivered on everything they promised!

We could not agree with you more: Tatiana is an incredibly skilled guide and really knows all there is when it comes to the Vatican and the history of the church. A brilliant teller of tales and delightful company, ensuring that all her guests are well taken care of as she navigates these busy museums which is no easy feat but Tatiana knows all the best routes and how to avoid the main crowds where possible. We will be sure to pass along your kind words and are also pleased you appreciated our easy booking system and delightful office staff who are on hand to answer all our guests' questions. Thank you for choosing Through Eternity for your Vatican adventure and your 5-star review! Pips

Enrica was a great tour leader. In Rome you can find some many companies but this one is special, small and care about the tourist. Inside the Vaticanshe knew the important points and how to move around thousand of people.

Good morning Juliana and thanks for such a smashing review, Enrica will be so pleased to read it as guides love to hear what customers think of their tours. We realise that with so many agencies offering experiences in Rome, it can be quite daunting and overwhelming knowing which company to book with so you chose well and many make their final decision based on reviews such as yours. We work tirelessly to ensure our guests visit all the sites on their wish-list and ensure that the guides we collaborate with, are of the highest quality Rome has to offer. Enrica is exceptional at picking out the most relevant of the treasures the Vatican plays host to and with her extraordinary technique and original approach, is able to piece together the complex history of the Vatican in a way that is easy for her guests to understand. It is no simple task to navigate these busy rooms and corridors but Enrica does it with such flair and ease, making the experience so much more enjoyable. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Eternal City very soon. Pips
