My Review

This tour was well worth the money, extremely organized and easy to find the meeting point. You could spend hours trying to figure out what to see and miss a lot of items. It was very organized and the guide Bario from Dark tours, provided lots of information on various topics associated with the rich history of the Vatican. The best part was it avoided the lines to get into the Vatican as well as St Peters. Huge time saver, would use them. Most of the tour is inside and dress appropriately.

As well, do not bring a backpack as you will have to check it. A small camera bag appeared to be OK. I used mostly a wide angle zoom 10-24mm. Changing lenses can be difficult.


The most interesting aspect was someone had the wrong date, off by several months, and they managed to get them into the tour and not disappoint. Well done.

My Review

The tour was very well organized and worth the money. The guide Alex was super and very informative and knowledgeable. Great explanations and illustrations as to what the ruins might of looked in their time. We got to skip the lines and see a lot. There is a lot of walking and good footwear and is outdoors. So dress appropriately. The tour included the Colosseum, Palatine hill and Forum.
