  • LIMITED MOBILITY Ancient Rome area and Vatican Museums visits involve SIGNIFICANT WALKING. The Roman Forum and Palatine surfaces are uneven, but a considerable portion of the area has wheelchair paths. Please note that the pathway from the Sistine Chapel to St Peter’s Basilica has 50 steps downwards and is not wheelchair accessible. The tour can continue to the Basilica only if all members of your private group can walk down the stairs, but, for safety reasons, it is not possible to carry wheelchairs and walkers down the stairs. If your private group includes participants with reduced mobility, we can still bring you to the Basilica, going back to the Museum's entrance and reaching it from the outside with the car. Although there is a dedicated pathway for wheelchairs, please be aware that there may be a queue to enter the Basilica. Also, note that other participants in your group will have to take charge of pushing the wheelchair.
  • VATICAN IS CLOSED ON SUNDAYS (and religious holidays). Due to the Wow Tour's high request, we designed a Sunday experience when the Vatican is closed. With your guide, and your driver you will explore St. Peter's Square, Castel Sant' Angelo area and other marvelous sites like the Aventine hill; from its top, you enjoy spectacular views over the city. As an alternative we will prospose other museums or arcaeological sites!

Like wheelchairs and walkers, strollers are not allowed in the passage from the Sistine Chape directly to the Basilica ( 50 steps downward ). Your private tour will end without the Basilica visit.

Absolutely fabulous! Robert was a fantastic guide!!!!! We saw everything we wanted to see! Going with a guide that knew so much history.
Great tour to see the top Rome sites
Debbie_N, Apr 2024
This tour was a great way to experience a lot of Rome’s top sites all in a day! The pacing of the tour was well done. We saw so much in a day, but didn’t feel completely spent at the end. Our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to highlight our interests. It was also very convenient to have Alessia as our own personal driver to get us quickly from site to site. I would highly recommend this tour!
What an amazing way to see so much beauty in a day! Absolutely brilliant tour.!
Lynn_S, Apr 2024
What a way to see Rome in a day! Can't recommend enough! Andrea (Andy) our guide and Andrea our driver gave us an amazing day. Mom is in a wheelchair and they took such wonderful care of her planning around accessibility and we didn't miss a thing. It was priceless for her to see her grandkids discover Rome for the first time and was everything we hoped. Andy also tailored the details and kept 2 teenagers completely entertained. The front of the line access was such a treat and we really missed many of the crowds. So much behind the scenes effort to get us right up close to things and be ready for us as soon as it was time to move. The even squeezed in an amazing gelato stop for us. Such knowledge, kindness, and truly 2 warm and kind fellows. We were spoiled rotten and would do it again in a heartbeat. Wish I had more than 2 thumbs because I'd put them all up :). If you're on the fence - book it!
Great Overall Experience
Melissa_F, Mar 2024
Robert was exceptionally professional and knowledgeable. Our driver was fabulous, as well. Everything was well planned, so we didnt need to wait in the long lines. We would definitely do this same all day private tour, again!
Fantastic tour if you would like to explore Rome within a day.

The visit to the Coliseum was amazing. What made it even better was having access with a tour guide and not being stuck with all the other people.
Eddy and Remo were the...

Luxury and attention
Jesse_F, Oct 2023
Eddie and Romono were amazing. We had an awesome day, and they arranged anything we wanted. We felt like rock stars.
Great way to spend the day if your in Rome for a short visit
Shayne_C, Oct 2023
Private driver and a tour guide skipping the line at major attractions what more could you ask for. Our driver was on time, was disappointed that the van only sat 6 people in the back so one person had to sit up front with the driver and tour guide but we made the best of it. ( where booked in advance for 7 people) Truly was skip the line and our guide really knew her way around
We loved Eddie
Wendy_S, Oct 2023

Our one day tour!
Deborah_S, Oct 2023

Rome in a day
Mike_W, Oct 2023
Skipping the lines at the Vatican and Coliseum were well worth it. Eddie was our guide and was very knowledgeable and had a great personality! The only complaint is that it was a bit pricey.
Kathleen_W, Oct 2023
Driver was not at port when we docked. We had to call. Later had to share our “private car” with another couple. Guide was very informative but gave us very little time to take pictures.
Rome sight seeing trip
John_A, Oct 2023
There was a team of 2 people. One a driver and tour guide. They had an excellent team. The driver was able to get us to the stop quickly under difficult driving conditions. The tour guide was knowledgeable and thorough in explaining every sight stop thoroughly. They both deserved a 5 star rating.
Best Tour of our Mediterranean Trip !
Emmanuel_Z, Oct 2023
Our driver and tour guide were exceptional! We were a group of four and enjoyed very second of the day in Rome. Our amazing tour guide had the perfect amount of information for our interests and was able to answer every question we had. His depth of knowledge was endless, and felt like it allowed us enjoy the experience even more than we anticipated. Our tour consisted of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Basilica, Trevi Fountain, Amazing Lunch, Colosseum and Roman Forum. We looked at many different tours prior to our Mediterranean Trip and this was the best decision we could have made. Highly recommend to future travelers. Worth every penny we spent. Our guide was even kind enough to mail our our postcards home from the Vatican the next day, so we could maximize our time at other sites . ( We were on a Royal Caribbean cruise and talked to others that booked with different tours who were not able to see everything due to the large groups and time constraints.)
A private tour is the best way to learn the history of Rome!
Sandy_W, Oct 2023
Our guide, Patricia was fabulous. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a wonderful time and could not recommend her more. This was our first visit to Rome and so glad we booked a private tour. Alex the driver was very nice and punctual. Loved it!!!
Magical day in Rome!
theodore_c, Oct 2023
Highly recommend! Our guide Luca, was both personable and extremely knowledgeable. We gained valuable history and insights of the sites visited … the Spanish Steps in the Spanish Square, the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Vatican including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. All possible with the help of our driver Sergei who dropped us off and picked us up flawlessly keeping us on time since we only had one day to explore Rome. We will ask for Luca/Sergei when we visit next time!
