Amust do. Private was the only way to go with all the crowds. Took a star off because no one called us to let us know the vatican St peter's bascilica was closed that week every day until 2 so we did not get to go even though we paid big bucks for the tour. We would have rescheduled to a later time
Mauricio Morris our guide was lovely and very patient. I had booked this private tour as I was travelling with my 70 year old parents who had done Rome before but since we had a day to spare in Rome, thought it would be good to have a refresher!
Mauricio was perfect for what we wanted. Really patient and went out of his way to provide us with as much explanation as possible and to show us as much as he could - both on and off the tourist map. He even guided us to a lovely restaurant for lunch.
All in all a really good experience and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Rome and do it comfortably.
