Tour guide very informative and didnt linger in one area for too long - kept the tour moving and interesting. Amazed at what we saw.
I'm usually a do it yourself travel person, but the Vatican museums can be overwhelming so I decided to book this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it a better experience. Plus, on a Saturday in May, there were thousands of people in line so the skip the line option is worth it alone.
Great to skip the long queue for entrance. Guide very knowledgeable. Tour was everything it promised to be.
A well-worth tour in the Vatican. Our guide was really prepared. We saw other guides from other agencies, and they didn't give by far this much of information to their group as she did to us. Really kind as well.
The only negative point was that by the end the small headsets didn't work for any of us in the group. But then, we just had to be closer to the guide to listen.. :)
This was a very well worthwhile tour with the added advantage of avoiding the massive queues for those who hadn't made bookings. The guide (sorry I didn't note her name) was obviously very knowledgeable judging by the extent of information imparted which was usually much more than the basics! This was the first time I had experienced the individual mobile-sized 'loudspeakers' provided. Using these enabled every member of the group to clearly hear the guide's commentary - a really significant improvement on the traditional method of trying to catch just an unaided verbal commentary. .It is only surprising it is not more widely used.
It was very well organised. Started on time. Our guide was very helpful.
Great tour! Our guide was excellent and you will appreciate "skipping the line" when you see the very long lines at the ticket office. This tour involves a moderate amount of walking and you should know that the entrance fee is not included. Highly recommended!
Same: Awesome! Everyone on time, good equipment, knowledgable guide, friendly staff and great value for services received!!! I'd recommend to anyone I know!
It was absolutely worthwhile to book this tour and skip that unbelievable line up! I happened to visit on a particularly busy weekend due to holidays and events in Rome. The tour guide Nicola was excellent at keeping the group together and focused so I found the whole experience to be interesting, particularly as he shared little known insights about Michelangelo's paintings in the Sistine Chapel. Time and money well spent.
A walking tour that allows for some stopping and talking. Our guide was great, English was great, provided good details without being long winded. The audio equipment was in good working order, however the generic earpiece is too big for kids. Enjoyed the overviews, stories behind many parts of the building's and people. Worth doing!
