The tour was wonderful! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and nice. I enjoyed the tour very much!
The tour is very a time saver, as it is skip the line and get the best of Vatican, The tour guide provided lots of information and details, and I liked a lot that they have a passion for what they are doing. They provide much more information not just what you can read in a guide book. Strongly Recommend. Good English speaking guide.

We got to the Vatican Museum about 7:30AM or so and already the line was extremely long! We were thrilled to already have tickets and were able to skip the line and enter. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. While sometimes had an overload of information, it was interesting. This tour is highly recommended unless you like spending hours in line.
This tour was amazing! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and her passion for these sites was invigorating and much appreciated by our group.
We really enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the museum, the art works, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. The only problem with the tour was the awful heat and the crowded venue on the day before the Feast of the Assumption.
David our guide was fabulous. When we arrived he made a point of introducing himself and asking where we were all from and then making a comment about each area/country. He was very knowledgable. He presented the tour in a lighthearted way but still giving us all the relevant details.
Amazing tour. David, our guide, was efficient, funny and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
We did skip the line and Shannon (?) was an amazing guide. Her knowledge is incredible!!
I highly recommend this tour,especially with Shannon!!
Wonderful tour. We learned a lot from the tour guide. She was excellent.
Our guide, Simona, was excellent. She kept the group moving ahead of the gathering crowd and made the experience so much more than it would have been had we gone through alone. We had 20 minutes to just marvel at the Sistine Chapel before entering the Basillica, which was perfect. She pointed out so many things that we just would have missed! The group was small 11 and that was great. It was well worth the money to go in earlier and have an experienced guide and I would recommend this to anyone. It may seem like it is expensive but, if you take the walk up to the top of the dome at the end of your tour and look to see those lines that wrap around the piaza 5 deep in August, you will know it is money well spent!
We were so lucky! As an history teacher, I visit almost every year the Vatican Museum with my students. This time I came with one of my daugters and took the oppertunity to be guided. I was a little sceptic about beeing guided but it was great! Our guide showed some specific details and guided us also throug a part of the ancient collection! My daughter and I were very pleased! Thanks!
Our guide was great very knowledgeable about the correlation with history and art.
Great tour with Dorianna. Got much more of a feel for the Vatican City after her explanations which we would have completely missed without the tour. As we visited in August it was, to say the least, super crowded but the skip the line tickets were a blessing and our guide managed to squeeze in and find us relatively quieter spaces to appreciate it all.
Very wheelchair friendly but remember to cover your shoulders and knees as St. Peters Basilica will refuse you entrance if you dont- its not negotiable! You can, however, buy scarves before you begin the tour and use them to cover up.
Would highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to visit the Vatican City.
It was very busy/hot/cramped but our guide made it easy for us. Well worth it.
