EXCELLENT tour guide! Thought she was AMAZING!!! Well done!
Outstanding tour. Maria was an excellent guide with lots of interesting stories along the tour. Very pleased we took it.
Brilliant tour would definitely recommend it, couldn't enter the church due to the pope doing mass but everything else was great
Ahead of massive ques
The Museum Sistine Chapel and Bassica needs a lifetime to look
Fantastic tour and an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. It was a fun, interesting and engaging tour. And even though the lines were long because the crowds were at peak tour season, the skip the line was absolutely worth it.
Helena, our guide, was very thorough and really enthusiastic. We loved the tour!

Although I am unable to remember our tour guide's name she was wonderful. She explained everything in detail and made the Vatican visit the most enjoyable excursion. If we didn't have a guide, we would not have understood how each piece of artwork, rugs, statues etc. related to religion and history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome as it was the highlight of our trip.
Our tour guide was superb. There were some technical glitches with the audio cutting out at times but not long enough to spoil the enjoyment of the tour but should be looked into for future tours.
Tour guide was very helpful in knowing the ins and outs of the details of getting through the tour comfortably Vatican tour is unique as many tours and people are going narrow common areas. She also spent time to engage with any specific problems and issues and offer solutions.
Tour was great. Local guide was great and very knowledgeable about the history of the Vatican. Worth the price of admission just to avoid the lines.
AMAZING! Incredible tour guide! She was funny, informational, and spoke WONDERFUL ENGLISH! Highly recommend! It was just a really great experience.
Great way to get the most out of an overwhelming site and to beat the lines! Maria was so very knowledgeable and very adaptable to the groups needs. She was always looking out for my mom to be sure we minimized our time going up and down stairs and made sure options were offered when it was time to take a rest. I was here 3 years ago, without a guide and felt like it was my first time seeing the Sistine Chapel, Raphael's Rooms and St Peter's, given Maria's insights and how she was able to convey the stories behind the art.
Great tour, our guide was very informative had a passion for his work. Only disappointment is he had his microphone on his left side so there were things we couldn't hear when he turned his head to the right, maybe he should have a headset with microphone. i was glad he took extra time as we were delayed by lineups in some areas.
The best way to see the Vatican, I would highly recommend that you book this tour and skip queues, the tour guide was really knowledgable, and it saves a long 2 hour wait..
Very good. Meeting location was well explained. We were placed in groups and our Vatican guide met us and took us through. Excellent guide - very knowledgeable. Avoided lines.
Our guide had a vast knowledge of the art in the Vatican museums. Only down side is St Peters was closed when we were there for a special ceremony so we didn't get to see it. Not the tour's fault though. We did get to take our time in the Sistine Chap though and if you are patient, can even get a seat for more enjoyable viewing.
Great walking tour! Sev was really awesome, funny, and very knowledgeable. So much I didn't know about the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. If you can get Sev, ask to be in his group.
Our guide, Francesca, was upbeat and delightful. Very knowledgable and informative. Worth the money.
The vatican is always crowded and having a good guide helps you make sense of what you are looking at, plus you skip all the long lines to get in.
This is the best way to see the Vatican, hands down! Wonderful tour and our guide Sarafina was terrific! Her expansive knowledge of the Vatican was obvious.
Gabriel was very knowledgeable and the tour was well organized.
This tour was awesome! Our tour guide Barbara was excellent! She shared many great stories and it was obvious that she really loves to provide these tours! She also was very open to questions and provided comprehensive answers!
