Great tour, great guide! We saw everything we wanted to see. We never felt rushed. Our guide spoke perfect English. She explained everything we saw, or were going to see. She explained it in a way you understood, making what you were seeing come to life. You could tell how much she loved her job, by how enthusiastic she was. Take a tour of the Vatican, as you can wait for hours for tickets, get in and walk around aimlessly, and not see everything you would like. Well worth the money to skip the line and see the highlights.
Excellent tour. A wonderful experience made even better by an outstanding guide.
This tour was great. It was very informative and our tour guide Marianna was excellent. She was very inspiring as she shared her knowledge with us. She spoke english very well and very clear. You can tell that she enjoyed her job by her enthusiasm. Would definitely recommend this tour to others. Please say hello to Marianna from Gianni e Patrizia, Sud Carolina, USA. You may share are email address with her if you wish.
We thought getting into Rome for an 0900 start would beat the crowds. Wrong. They were already there in large numbers! The tour seemed long at 3 hours but in reality we never touched the Museums in any detail! They are so vast but to just taste and flavour the extent of them and the astonishing artworks was brilliant. Having time in the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica rounded off a fantastic and unforgettable tour.
Uta was excellent! My only disappointment was that the Etruscan sector of the Vatican Museums were not included in this tour. But other than that, thumbs up to Uta!
This was a great tour and all that we had time for. If we had more time then I would have loved to do the full-day tour. I highly recommend taking a tour as it seems less crowded for tours and you can skip the line.
Great tour, the guide (Aliana?) was very enthusiastic and knowledgable. There was absolutely no time spent in queues and we got to see the best bits of the Vatican in half a day.
What more could you want?!
Seeing the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica is a must-see if visiting Rome for the first time. Our guide Indiana was a responsible tour guide and held the group together with interesting facts.
We really enjoyed our tour of the Vatican museum, the Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. The tour started and finished on time. Our tour guide spoke very good english and gave a very interesting account of the history behind this wonderful place. I was particularly impressed with her account of the relationship between Michael Angelo and the Pope and how this was reflected in his works. Absolutely brilliant.
An excellent, stand out tour - - our guide (Alfredo I think) was excellent - knowledgable and passionate about his subject. We paid extra for the early, small group tour which is well worth it - no queues or fuss. St Peter's Basilica is breath taking - you don't realise the scale of the main dome until you check out the people on the upper levels (looking ant like) - well worth the effort to climb up (or take lift). Museums and Sistine Chapel all well worth the visit - so much to see for those interested in art and culture spanning previous three millenia
Skipping the long lines was well worth it. Tour guide was excellent.
