Great tour in great city
Christina our tour guide was very good
had great knowledge of the Vatican
and passionate about her job
This was an interesting tour and well done. St Peter's is SO crowded that it's always chaotic to get around. Our guide did a nice job of moving us around the crowds. One of our group was showing more skin than the guard wanted and less than other people in the group but our guide found her a scarf to put on. Thank you!
so glad I booked this tour and skipped the queue .
Guide was excellent
Tour was absolutely fabulous,St. Peters was quit busy, our guide kept us on track and avoided the crowds as much as possible, will still proving a very educational experience. I would highly recommend this service to any one. The guided service with a knowledgeable person made our experience that much more memorable.
Thanks for the great time.
We definitely recommend this tour to anyone in Rome. We were able to skip the line to enter St. Peter's and the audio tour made it possible to see the Basilica at your own pace. Totally worth it!
We booked this tour because it was not part of our private tour of the sistine chapel and we did not want to miss the Basilica. It was a perfect addition to our Vatican Tours. It was amazing to skip the lines and get right in. It was very crowded and hot the day we went and the ability to get right in was awesome. The tour did include an excellent guide who was very knowledgable. At the end, we added the tour of the dome at the end. It is a tricky walk, difficult for some folks, but the view was amazing.
Absolutely loved this tour! It was the highlight of my trip. Our tour guide was wonderful and knowledgable when it came to details about St. Peter's Basilica.

Wonderful to skip the line. The tour guide was wonderful. An absolute must do.
Fabulous tour guide! She did a great job and the tour was very informative for the whole family. Being able to skip the line was a definitive plus instead of having to wait in the hot sun
Worth it to pay to skip the line. Otherwise you'll be in line for hours.
Uncomplicated booking! Pickup point easy to find! Procedure is troublefree!
Catalina was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide. She was obviously very knowledgeable, passionate and keen to make sure all our interests and questions were addressed. She really was a lovely guide - I couldn't recommend her more.
It was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept our interest the entire way. She included additional facts that were very interesting. Well worth the cost of entry.
Catalina was excellent. This was our first time to do such a tour, and as a result, we have decided to do it throughout our one-week stay in Italy. We did a bicycle tour in Florence yesterday, and today are back in Rome for a Colleseum tour. Having a guide there to tell us about things, made the whole experience so much richer. The Basilica has such a depth of history, which we were totally unaware of. We would have walked around for 20 minutes, having no significant idea what we were looking at. The tour guide made the experience.
What an experience! If you ever visit the St Peters Basilica only do it with a tour guide if you dont want to que for hours and if you want to have a good understanding of the history and what you see inside. Would highly recommend this tour and will definitely return to Rome during summer.
Well worth the money If on a budget this tour is well worth the money English speaking well informed tour guide History of Vatican and contents we would never have known Highly recommend
Meeting point was clear and contact arrived promptly, on time.
Guide around the Vatican was first class. She was very informative, patient, answered our many questions, and didn't speak to us as though she had done lots of previous tours. Excellent.
The tour was very informative and provided a valuable insight regarding the many views in the basilica. A very good value for the money.
The tour was really good we had a difficult time finding the person who we had to meet but eventually found them. It was only two of us who needed the English tour so we had our own private guide. She was very knowledgeable. A plus is being able to skip the 3 hour line.
I have difficulty walking. Your staff pushed me in my walker into the cathedralo and then set my wife and I up with a wonderful tour guide. The service you provided was,to us,above and beyond expectation. I would recommend your compnay to all my friends. Thank you for your outstanding service.
So glad we did not have to wait in line for this tour - it was very, very long, and at this time of year (late Oct), that was unexpected. Loved being able to tour at our own pace, with headsets. Our only disappointment was the barricade set up at the altar where Peter is buried, due to a mass about to begin, as that was why we came back after a visit here 2 years ago. One of the greatest churches in Christendom and not to be missed. This tour is a great way to do it.
In this tour you really do get to skip the line and walk right into the Basilica. The tour guide gave us good information about the Basilica. It was a nicely paced tour.
We looked everywhere for our tour guide but could not find them, the line was very quick to get in because we had the 9:30am tour (even on a Saturday, it took five mins maybe) We showed the security guards our ticket and they took us to the tour booth. Idk if we were the only ones signed up or if we missed our tour, but we got a personal tour of just the three of us. It was really awesome, our guide Antonia was very knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to take our pictures and ask any questions we had. Would definitely recommend! Even if we were on the full tour, it would've been great.
