Although I missed the 9 o'clock tour by only 20 minutes, another was scheduled for 11 am. Rather than take the tour with a French-speaking guide at 10, I relaxed and waited for the English-speaking tour.
Roselina was our tour guide. I can't say enough about her enthusiasm, her professionalism, and her knowledge of each of the areas which we toured. Prior to our entering the Sistine Chapel, she pointed out several anomalies in Michelangelo's works that many people don't know about. This made the visit all the more intriguing and will be long remembered. I am so glad that I scheduled this tour and will always remember Rome with fondness. The people that I encountered there were some of the friendliest and helpful persons in Europe.
Great tour, awesome guide and was great to be able to skip the long lines.
This was my favorite tour! A personable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide and being able to access the Sistine without waiting in a long line. Outstanding! Plenty of time for photographs in St. Peter's and the Vatican, too.
Definitely worth "skipping the line". The tour guide was well-informed, very friendly and easy to follow in the Vatican Museums. There is so much to see, but also so much that you cannot see. We felt like we received a good overview of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel. There was much in St. Peter`s that we didn`t know exactly what to look for, outside of the La Pietra.
This tour was amazing. We found the meeting place very easily. Nickola the guide was excellent- telling us interesting facts all the way around the museums, Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica- the time passed by so quickly. Once the tour was over we had some free time of our own in St Peter's which was great.
This was an amazing day and our tour guide was great at guiding us around the Vatican. We visited on Christmas Eve and it was very busy so the lines were long. He definitely knew where to go and how to navigate the entrance. He took the time to explain various masterpieces and felt he didn't go overboard which allowed us to keep moving and seeing the Vatican.
We would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone. Francesca our tour guide was not only extremely knowledgeable but did it all with a great sense of humour. The 3 hours went really quickly as Francesca filled us in with great facts and information all the way. Thanks Francesca!

Great tour! Our guide was so informative and answered everyone's questions along the way! Learned facts that we would have never known, had we just gone ourselves! She gave us time for photo ops - which is always appreciated. Small group which was nice - noticed some tours had 3 times the people in them!
This was a really good tour. The guide was so knowledgeable and without her there would have been a lot we would have missed. Highly recommended.
Excellent Tour to take for visiting the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Basilica. Must do for all visiting Rome. We had an excellent guide too.
