I took the vatican tour with roman odyssey in February and it was very good. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining because he didn't just throw facts at you. Also, if you don't know alot about history and art, it is worthwhile. I think you will get much more out of the experience with a tour guide.

I hear that their other tours are good as well. We would have liked to go on them, but we ran out of time.

Thanks for your feedback Diane.
Who was the guide on your Vatican tour?

I'm not sure what his last name is, but his first name was Steve. If he is not available, I heard that Jason Spiehler was also very good.

Good luck!

I had a similar question posed to this helpline and got two responses, both recommending this company, http://www.contexttravel.com/rome/. If you look at their website, you will see that their docents are highly qualified professionals. For instance, I just booked an ancient Rome tour of the Forum, Colosseum, and Palatine Hill. The groups are no larger than 6 people and the tour is 4 hours as opposed to 2.5 hrs for most other companies. One of the two guides for this tour has a PhD. in archaeology from UT Austin (Texas). The tours cost more than the others companies, but probably will be well worth it. Context has some wonderfully out of the ordinary tours to choose from. Check them out!

Is there a reason that you don't want to book a tour directly from the Vatican. Our Vatican tour guide last year was wonderful.

Thanks John, I'll check the Contex tour website.

The tour from the Vatican itself usually have a big group of peoples (30 to 40). I like smaller group.
