The tour was very well organized and our guide was excellent. She was well informed and was very conscientious about not losing anyone and ensuring that all could see and hear her. The Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel were very busy and the crowds were understandably very heavy due to the Easter weekend. The only glitch was that St Peters basilica was closed for our part of the tour due to events relating to the Easter celebrations. All the exhibits in the museum were great and it did not seem rushed although the great crowds of people made it seem that you were being pushed along. Overall it was a very worthwhile tour and I would highly recommend it. The line up to get in must have been a 3 - 4 hr wait...that alone would justify going on this 'skip the line' tour.
The Venice Ghost Walking Tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It was a cold, windy, rainy night which sort of added to the ghostly, creepy ambiance of the tour. The meeting place was easily found and the tour guide was punctual and very animated. She was full of stories and information; her English was excellent and her stories kept us all interested, especially our 11 and 14 year old sons. Some of the stories were grisly but very entertaining; lots of historical tidbits and lots of walking around. We would all highly recommend this tour and were all glad that we did it!!
