Maximus Tours provided a wonderful guide who was totally fluent in both Spanish and English. Additionally, he was very knowledgeable about all the details and history of the Vatican and... More

My wife and I have just had 2 excellent tours in Rome, both done through Maximus Tours. Our son and daughter in law had used them previously in Rome and thanks to them for their very sound advice.

Navigated us well through the packed Vatican museums and then into St Peter's. Kristiana is very informative but also entertaining, and from the vast collection of exhibits she selected works that are important in themselves but also illustrate the richness of the collection.

Maximus Tours went above and beyond to make the experience happen. I had a unique case because I didn't have an international phone so communication was limited. They responded to emails and other communication methods very quickly. They made the experience well worth the money! Well done, Maximus!

Our tour was to the Vatican & I am so glad we had a guide as the place was packed. At times we seemed to be just stood listening to the guide while larger groups passed us by, however, this meant sometimes we were able to view other areas which were much quieter as the bigger groups had rushed to...

We have enjoyed two great tours over two days to the Vatican and the Forum and Colosseum. The two guides were amazing and ensured we didn't miss anything and understood all we were looking at. It was definitely worth doing and we would recommend to anyone visiting Rome for the first time. Excellent.

We really enjoyed our tour of the Vatican with Christina. Although it was a very busy day Christina ensured we saw all important pieces in the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel. She even made a point of telling us key pieces to look at in the Basicilla. It was simple to book and the meeting instructions were very clear. Christina... More

Everything about Maximus Tours was easy and well worth the money. It was simple to book online, and the meeting instructions were clear. Our tourguide was Cristiana and she was amazing.
