If St. Peter's Basilica isn't the greatest thing on earth, I don't know what is. Do not miss this. Try to avoid in in July, as it is quite hot in the museums. That said, it's wonderful,
AMAZING! It helps to have wonderful guides who know the history so well. Our family enjoyed it thoroughly.
Rome was the favorite stop on my European adventure and this tour was one of the best excursions I took. Shannon was wonderful, full of knowledge on the site and the city. She kept us well informed on what we would be seeing as well as practical advice on the temperature and crowds in the building. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide--she is passionate about the art and the city and it was conveyed throughout the tour. The group was just the right size, not too big to be lost and not to small to feel as though you can look at your own pace.
An amazing experience, I think we got a lot more out of the visit by having a guide as you learnt so much about the history and artists. Thoroughly enjoyed by us and our two 14year old girls. Note to remember though - you need to cover shoulders and knees. We have to buy wraps for the girls as their shorts were not long enough...
Excellent guide. Had no problem. I will use you guys again. Keep up the good work!
Our guide was the best of the best! We really enjoyed her. I highly recommend skipping the long Vatican lines. Having your own guide is a must.
Great tour. Well worth booking in advance to avoid big queues. Oscar are guide was excellent. Very knowledgable and friendly. Would definitely recommend using this company again.
The very first day in Rome, this was the perfect way to kick start our Italian holiday. Not only did we skip the line, we learned a lot about Roman culture and history. It was beautiful and very informative and our guide Christiano was quite excited to take us through the smaller and lesser known details about the Chapel. Recommended: comfortable footwear and sorbet at the Cafe Vaticano across the street from the museum.
What an amazing day at the Vatican. A big thanks to our tour guide for creating such a memorable day in Rome!
Highly, highly recommend this tour. The guide was prompt at the location where the voucher told us to meet. You could tell she had a great amount of knowledge about the Vatican museum, and had such a wonderful personality. Our Vatican tour just wouldn't have been the same without her. Thanks so much!

While the tour itself was really great, our tour guide David was what really made this enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable in everything about The Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica but also had a great sense of humor. We were very impressed with this tour and would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to see The Vatican. There's just way too much to see and having someone help to navigate and explain is definitely worth it.
Great Tour and Tour guide was fantastic! One of my favorite tours. Next time I would try to do a really early or evening tour to see if there is less people.
Our tour guide Franscesca was fantastic...very knowledgable and got us through the mega crowds inside the Sistine chapel very skilfully. I would definitely recommend doing this tour as the lines were very long and it was hot.
It was awesome. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. We really skipped the line. The booking was very easy using on line. I recommend the tour to everyone.
Awesome tour guide! Since St. Peter's Basilica was not open on Wednesday morning, we spent our time in the Vatican Museum. The information shared was very interesting!
Oscar was our guide and we thought he was fantastic. Very knowlegable and entertaining thru out the entire
tour. Would recommend this to anyone interested in seeing the Vatican while in Rome.
This tour is very nice. You are provided headsets and put in a manageable sized group where it is easy to interact/ask questions with the tour guide. Our guide, Barbara, was great! She was knowledgeable and caring for everybody in the group. We were happy with how she navigated us through the crowds.
Loved the evening tour- much cooler- but didn't include St. Peter's but that was ok because the tour was 3 1/2 hours as it was. We saw the basilica the next day- better to split up those two tours.
