Great tour!

We toured with Norman who is an excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and provided so much information to deepen our understanding of all the major sites. The tour itself is incredibly comprehensive covering all the major sites of Vatican City. Highly recommend this tour!

A tour of Vatican City and it’s amenities

The tour took us through the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum, and St. Peter’s Basilica. Our guide was knowledgeable and gave great insightful background information on important sites. If you’re looking at just doing one of the parts of this tour, I would look at a specific ticket option for that; for example, we spent about 2 hours in the museum and saw very little of it compared to what was available because we had to stay to a schedule. A ticket option just for the museums and Sistine Chapel would give you more time (that is of course if it’s not a guided tour). If you’re looking to get a general overview of each section of the Vatican this is the tour for you. I would highly recommend!

Only downside was the slow pace as a couple of people on the tour had mobility issues. The guide was quite thorough and the length of the tour adequate. Nice amount of time in the Cistine Chapel.

100% worth paying more to skip the line and get in early, ahead of the crowds. The guide was essential as the Vatican is so large it is overwhelming. If you didn't know where to go you would waste a lot of time, let alone hours waiting in hot lines with no shade. Our guide was very knowledgeable and overall it was a great experience. We travelled with our 4 kids (ages 15, 13, & twins age 12) and it was a great pace for them as well. Highly recommend.

Fantastic tour with an excellent guide (Lucia). Exactly what we wanted - skip the line is a must unless you like standing around for 1-2hrs! Might have been nice to have spent a little longer in the Vatican but we saw most things we wanted to.

Our travel guide, Marco, is the best agent we ever had. I did same tour two years ago with other tour accompany. There is no comparison. He is very knowledgeable, professional, nice and fun. We definitely will remember him and introduce other friend to him. I hope that we will be able to find him next time we come visit again. Thank you!

Marco is the best!!! This tour is the highlight of our Rome trip. Marco did great at leading us to key structures and artifacts. We learned so much in the time we spent with him. The tour itself is well organized and we had plenty of time to explore after as well.

Avoid This Tour, better to purchase at the Vatican.

The meeting spot was impossible to find. The number to call was for the States and was after hours. We missed the tour due to ridiculous instructions. Other tour guides said these second hand tours have this problem all the time. I’m requesting a full refund.

Although the tour guide...

Although the tour guide operator was knowledgeable I found it to be rushed. No time to look around and experience the tour. He didn’t have a flag and often times was easy to lose. In fact at the Sistine chapel I lost him and the group and was left on my own. Not too happy. Would I visit again yes but maybe try a different tour guide.

What a great tour. I am sure that everyone in our group was as satisfied with it, as we were. Do not hesitate to take this informative beautiful tour. It does take a bit of walking (about 10000 steps) but it is good exercise, with plenty of stairs but a very patient guide for us 70 year olds who move slowly. Have a ball!

Enjoyable Vatican tour full of facts and stories

Tour guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions from the group. Due to the crowds, standing in line, and stairs, it would have been helpful if mobility requirements would have been posted in advance. Some group members had difficulty keeping up, which slowed down the whole tour.

Our guide, Claudia, was absolutely excellent. Knowledgeable, engaging, funny, and kept us on track. The forum was our favorite part. She really brought it to life.

Philliepo was excellent. He paced the tour very well and tried his best to keep us out of the 100+ degree sun. Would highly recommend this tour.
