Excellent tour. Our guide was great -- very informative and attentive the entire group in a very crowded space. The tour is worth the price simply to skip the line which looked to be two-three hours of a wait in the hot sun. We skipped every line and only waited less than three minutes for security and then inside for distribution of headsets and tour logistics five minutes. The trip to the top of the Cupola was worth it as well -- some find the climb long, but it's very interesting -- spiral staircases, seeing the curved walls of the inside of the dome, etc. Again, an excellent guide. Stop looking -- just book this tour.
This tour was excellent, the guide was passionate and knowledgable. Although not for the unfit, the view was so worth the climb.
Fantastic tour of St Peter's and the cupola. Our guide was great! Skipping the line was fantastic!!!
Excellent guides. Clear and easy to hear. Small group. Highly recommend!
If there is one thing you need to know about the Vatican is that it is PACKED! This tour allows you to avoid the 2-3 hour long line! The tour guide is informative. TIP: If you will be upgrading to climb up the dome wear comfortable shoes.
It was a memorable tour not to be missed. It was everything we hoped for and more.
This tour was fantastic. Our guide's name was Cossimo. He was very knowledgeable and the tour was exactly as described. We will recommend this to friends and will be back to use the same tour group.
Basilica is beautiful! The trip up to the Cupola is a challenge (as well as the way down) but the view from the top is well worth the effort.
The tour was very thorough and the guide was very knowledgeable.
This tour was amazing!
