We very much enjoyed our small group (8-person) tour with Luciana. She was excellent at describing the many details of the museum, the Sistine chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica. She was patient with our 9 year old son. We had visited the Vatican before (without a tour) but this tour made it really "come alive." It was such a pleasure not to have to wait in line and although the tour started quite early (8:10 AM) it was really nice to beat the crowds as well.

I am disappointed that the Viator link to this review does not seem to be working like the others that I reviewed. I really wanted to let everyone know what a great guide Luciana was for our 8 person group.

Had a fantastic tour guide - Daniella. Very knowledgeable and with a sense of humor. Provided very interesting info about the tour and especially love the details about Raphael and Michaelangelo's "supposedly" rivalry whilst painting the Raphael's room and the Sistine chapel. Very insightful !

This tour was wonderful from start to finish. If you are going on this tour (and you must), it is best to start early morning before the crowds appear.

Sorry but now I am home, I have completely forgotten the name of lady tour guide. But she was from Dublin!

However, she had a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humour and was by far one of the most brilliant tour guides I have ever encountered!

The tour was exceptional, thanks to the tour guide - Analisa - who was the best we have had in Rome and Europe in general. We would highly recommend her to all visitors who want a great experience at Vatican City.

Our tour started promptly at 08.00 am, so an early start was necessary. Our guide, Daniela, was exceptionally knowledgeable and her enthusiasm infectious. Our trip to Rome was in late January, which is an ideal time of the year to do a tour such as this as there are far fewer people in the Vatican Museums than at peak times of the year. This enables you to take in far more at a far slower pace than would otherwise be possible. The tour last around three hours which gives you enough time to see all the major attractions. All in all a fantastic tour which I would place squarely in the has to be done zone.
