Max was our guide and extremely interesting to moderate our group. This tour is a must see. We arrived at 8:00 and lines were double around the Vatican wall and we simply bypassed with the skip the line ticket and started our day tour immediately.
Beautiful experience. We were in and out and people were still standing in line. Worth it. The lunch was good and the servers were very nice. Went back the next day for lunch.
We really enjoyed this tour! For anyone who wants to see the museums and Sistine Chapel, you just cannot go without a tour. The lines are crazy long, and in the heat - miserable. Happily, much of this tour is inside, because the late spring/summer can be hot. Our guide moved us at a perfect pace for information, picture-taking, and pondering.
Awesome! My wife and I would definitely recommend it to our friends!
Max the guide was excellent, informative and helpful. Not having to queue was wonderful. Thoroughly recommend this to other visitors to Rome
Wonderful tour but will be writing to you separately about issues to do with the management of the trip.
Absolutely wonderful! The guide was very knowledgable! ...going to the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel is a must!
We paid for tons of tours and out of all the tours, this was the ONLY tour that we took that was worthwhile. The guide was awesome. Very funny and yet made sure you saw everything that you could ever hope to have seen during your time. I really was happy that this tour was on our itinerary because I was starting to think they were all terrible.
Excellent tour! Our guide, Massimo, was very well informed and kept an eye on his group in this busy, busy place. He answered many questions and had a good sense of humor too. The skipping of the line really helped us here.
Absolutely amazing!!! No waiting in line and the #1 experience in Rome!
Exceptional! We were very lucky that it wasn't hugely busy which increased the pleasure of this visit in Nov, and the fact that we took the 2:30 tour meant that when we came out it was dark and we saw the Vatican lit up. Our guide was very informative and helpful. Words cannot describe how awesome the Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museum and St Peter's Basilica are.
From the booking perspective, it was not clear which hotels they pick you up from and in actual fact there were no hotel pick ups on our tour. Also, make sure you know where their office is locate to catch the bus to start the tour. They do drop people off at a few designated spots on the way back which was very helpful.
Awesome tour, thoroughly recommend it. :)
This tour was excellent much better than what I expected. The only down side was that after the tour we were not taken back to our hotels . They dropped us off at sights meant to be near our hotels , but some of us had really long walks in the dark and we were all very tired anyway.
Very well organized and no waiting in line. Our guide, Franco, was very knowledgeable.
When you arrive at Vatican City and you see the long lines winding around the front you'll be glad you booked a skip the line tour in advance. The tour guide was very informative, we unfortunately had an annoying American couple that kept interrupting as the guide was speaking. The pictures you see of St Peters church doesn't do it justice you have to see it just to see how grand it really is!
Max, our tour guide was fabulous! Skipping the line was well worth the money!
Absolutely amazing, breathtaking. The tour was wonderful and the guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this tour.
A great way to see these breathtaking landmarks without wasting half your day standing in lines. Our guides were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Tours are well-organized, a vital concern with the crowds you'll encounter. We moved through each building with ease, and we had as much time as we wanted in St Peter's itself. St Peter's was not a guided tour, we were on our own. We were rushed through the Sistine Chapel, very disappointing that our group was given less than 10 minutes there. Very crowded that day and probably necessary, but still a bummer. There is so much to see in the Sistine and it's barely possible to get a feel for it in that short a time.
Down to earth with a flair for comedy. Lovely chap and loyal to his group.
Very,very good! Francesca,the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable,the Vatican is a must see.One feels so small and insignificant among the giant scale of everything there.Not a single complaint from me about the Vatican tour!
My tour guide was very knowledgeable and went through at a reasonable pace.
