Tour leader was very knowledgeable about the history and English was very good. Meeting location was good and on-time to start. Headphones and receiver worked well and leader had couple of back-up receivers for those that had problem. This is way to go, especially in the busy season and when it so hot outside.
Don't miss this! There is so much to see and do that you cannot do this one on your own. We had a great tour guide.
Well worth every penny. Informative, interesting, and very well organized. This was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Rome.
great tour - enabled us to see some highlights of the Vatican museum before heading onto St Peter's. Our tour guide was a qualified art historian - so it was particularly interesting for us to have some context and explanation about the Sistine Chapel prior to entering so that we knew some things to look out for. Likewise it was great to get some commentary as we moved through the Vatican museum - including the Raphael's rooms.
Truly enjoyed our Vatican City Tour... It's worth it just to skip the line! I loved being in a small group. Our guide was very knowledgeable, clear, and thorough! Highly recommend this tour!
OUTSTANDING......From the moment we were greeted at our meeting point until our final goodbye.
This is really worth paying extra ...only 12 people in our tour and not a single queue!
So well handled and efficient.
Our guide Francesca was excellent with terrific knowledge and enthusiasm.
This was our first tour using the earpieces and we never missed a word despite being surrounded by other large groups.
I CAN HEARTILY RECCOMEND THIS TOUR
This tour truly does skip the line. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot from her.
We had the most amazing tour guide, Maria Rosaria, who took us expertly through the Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. She was so knowledgeable and friendly, and made everything very accessible. Seeing these parts of the Vatican in a group of only 12 people - before most of the crowds came in - was incredible. We had to get up very early to make this work, but it was well worth it.
This small group tour is well worth the small investment and makes for an easy, informed and well organized tour of the Vatican. The tour guide added quite a bit of extra information that was very insightful and added to the experience. This is the only way to tour the awe inspiring Vatican.
It was a fantastic tour! Even though we had been in St. Peter's Basilica before, this tour was terrific. The tour includes the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums. Our guide was very knowledgeable, answered our questions, skipped the line and got right in! We were first in Vatican City in the early 90's. We have been there several times since and tried to stand in line to tour the Basilica. We gave up each time. I am so happy that I booked this tour in advance and it was even more than I had expected. Book a tour - you won't be disappointed!
SEV was outstanding!!!! the tour was wonderful. We highly recommend it !!!!
Best way to see the Vatican. Our guide, Emma?, was highly educated and extremely pleasant. She could sort out what was important to see as well as explain the historical and creative highlights that we should know about. Skip the line is the only way to go.....we would have spent half the day just waiting for tickets!
absolutely loved it! best part of our trip to Rome, our guide was so knowledgeable, very well organised - an absolute must

Skipping the lines was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and took her time to explain the many area's we viewed
Super Tour.SuperTour Guide. Small group tours are the way to go.very enjoyable.
This is the only way to go! I can't imagine standing in the line to enter the Vatican! The crowds were crazy! The small group gave ample time to maneuver through the crowds and touch on the highlights with the ability to ask questions. Our guide was fantastic!
The best tour we have ever been on! The guide was great, she was informative, spoke great English and added some humor to the tour.
excellent guide, nicoli
great background information to prep folks for what we were about to see
good interaction with the group
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour the tour guide was informative and knowledgeable.
Elisabetta was the best!! She was very knowledgeable and I learned so many interesting things on this tour! I also appreciated the small group size. Overall it was a great experience, highly recommended!!
This Vatican tour Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum and St. Peters was well worth the expense! A small group with expert guide who was very passionate about the Vaticans history and treasures. We started early and the museum was still very crowded but we got to move quickly through with no waiting. We loved hearing all about the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo with pictures and great stories sitting out in the courtyard. Once we got in the Sistine Chapel where there was no talking allowed we knew what to look for and all about the history of the frescos. This type of tour was so beneficial to a first time visit to the Vatican. When we were finished with our tour mid-day. The lines to start the tours were very, very long and hot! We strongly recommend this tour you will not be disappointed!
