The Vatican museum was beautiful and our tour guide provided a wonderful and interesting history to add to the experience.
Sabrina was great. Very knowledgable and this tour was just the right length and amount of information to feel the full experience of the museum, Sistine chapel, and St Peters basilica.
Fantastic great guide, would recommend the experience to all.
This tour was breathtaking and Nina our tour guide made it very interesting.
We were both bowled over by this tour. Our guide, Alessia, was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a charming walk round the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel for 3 1/2 hours. We had been before, but the tour then was very rushed and we missed so many things, Alessia took her time and explained everything she thought relevant, so much so, that our brains were full up at the end. Thank you, it was great!!!
Emauella again was our tour guide. This tour was the highlight of our vacation. Mainly because of our tour guide, she knew her staff and added to the trip 100%
Our guide had amazing knowledge of all the sights we visited that morning. It was nice to be in the small group tour since it made it easier to get around the bigger groups. Also, she was very patient and didn't push us to hurry up.
Excellent guide that kept our small group totally immersed in the information and stories he shared with us. Also guided us seamlessly through the large crowd and he covered all the points of interest along the way. Small groups worth the extra
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and speaks good english. The pace of the tour is comfortable and the skip the line priviledge was very good as I do not remember any waiting in queues to access the different areas. However, the location of the meeting point is not very clear and should be specified more clearly. If you want to thoroughly experience the Vatican city and all its sights, this tour may be too short for you. Otherwise, the tour is gives you a good experience of the most prominent sights in the Vatican city.
I've been patting myself on the back for selecting this particular tour because first thing in the morning was perfect, even though it was hard to get up really early. It was fun to walk by hundreds of people standing in line and just walk on in. We had heard horror stories about overcrowding, especially in the Sistine Chapel but thanks to this tour we avoided huge crowds, not that we were exactly alone either! Our guide was phenomenal and we loved that she used an iPad to show us a map of where we would go plus from time to time photos of frescos to watch for, particularly in the Sistine Chapel. We were fortunate in getting to see the Raphael Rooms, understood that not all tours include them but they were amazing and at times we were the only ones in one of those rooms, other times a second tour was there, but still that is amazing in a big city like Rome. I've done a lot of day tours in plenty of countries in the last 30 years, most were "fine"; this one was outstanding. Our guide was smart, charming, and super friendly. It felt more like spending 3 hours with a friend who is totally in love with her city and loving being able to share it with us.
Great, great tour. Guide well trained and knowledgable. Would highl recommend!
Tiffany was amazing!!!! Such a wealth of information and she was able to present it in an interesting manner. Learned so many new facts on this tour.
It was a Awesome tour because of our tour guide Tiffany. She was from The U.S and so we could understand her but her knowledge and how she presented it made it fun and interesting. We skipped right through the long lines. I would highly recommend the early tour and ask for Tiffany
