Great tour Guide . We had a wonderful time . We game away with a great deal of knowledge. Best way to see all the above in one afternoon.
Agatha a great tour guide with a fun sense of humour, Italian flair and deep knowledge... got to the right spots quickly and pointed out things that we would never have noticed on our own eg optical illusions on tapestries
This tour was worth the money. Our guide was very charming and knowledgeable. Before we began our tour, he told us about himself and showed us pictures in a binder with insightful information of the paintings, sculptures, etc. that we would be seeing and pointed out certain historical and artistic tendencies of each artist. Loved the tour and our guide.
This really was a true skip the line tour. At the start there are three levels of queue. Normal queuing which only opens the door at 9 but to get in anytime before lunch you have to be there early. Other group tours skip them at 8 but still have to battle each other and then this one where you walk right by everyone. Being in before most people gave great space. The tour was fantastic and very knowledgeable. A lot of walking 3.5 hours of a tour but worth every second.
Met our small group near the entrance - Vincenzo made sure that our wireless systems were working so we could clearly hear all his comments as we toured the museums. Trip was around three hours long and included lots of walking !
Vincenzo had a real passion for his subject and brought everything to life - giving us all a very good understanding of the art ad sculptures as we made our walk of discovery,
Comprehensive tour with a great guide. So pleased that we had booked, would have hated to queue for hours and then walk for a further three hours. So worthwhile and the Sistine chapel was wonderful.
Sec was brilliant. Just the right amount of history with a wry sense of humour. Really enjoyed the tour as it tied in the history of other places we'd visited Forum/ Colloseum. Great to have someone point out some of the important bits of the Vatican without having to sort the wheat from the chafe yourself,. Also really useful as it was so busy although pm is definitely better you had someone telling you where to go so you didn't have to think about where to go.
Really recommend for best way to succinctly see the Vatican.
This really was a great tour. From start to finish it is worth every penny. Skipping the queue was worth entrance fee alone, but our guide was fantastic, interesting and her in depth knowledge added to the tour. I would highly recommend this trip.
We weren't sure whether or not to book the tour but we were glad we did. Our guide Georgia brought the tour to life and pointed out many hidden gems keeping our three daughters 15, 13 and 7 engaged for the full 3 hours of the tour.
This was exactly what i was expecting out of this tour. The tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable which made the 3 hour tour worth it.
I loved this tour. This was my second trip and by far the best. The tour guide was great, very knowledgeable and personable. I really can't think of anything to add or to improve the tour unless it was free!
Excellent. Tour guide very informative, directions easy to follow. Would do again.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the best of a very, very crowded Vatican. Beautiful architecture and paintings surround you.
The guide was wonderful and funny, despite scorching heat. He knew facts that you would not know or learn if you went on your own. I recommend doing the tour and then spending time on your own going through the Vatican
We had a wonderful tour that was lead by Summer. She was fabulous, knowledgable, and sensitive to her charges and the venue. We learned so much about a storied institution and Summer made it all come alive for us.
Very professional tour guide who was very knowledgable and the tour was well worth the money.
Great tour of the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica. Our tour guide, Maria Therese, was very knowledgeable and made the tour interesting and very informative.
Our guide Marisola was wonderful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were very happy.
