This is a two part tour, the first part was the vatican and it was Amazing. The sistine chapel is a must see and the basillica of saint peter was Amazing as well. The tour guide was great and very knowlegable. The second part was three other basillicas around rome, A different tour guide and he knew alot about the sturctures and artwork inside. We loved this tour. It was very must well Worth the money.

This was a highlight of our trip to Rome. We knew we made the right choice as we approached the Vatican museums and saw the line to get in snake back around for blocks. We met our guide Barbara who did a wonderful job, she walked us though all those lines right in. Make no mistake the museums and St. Peters are full of people, but the guided tour made it much easier and interesting, honestly it would be a challenge to navigate it all on your own. In the afternoon we met our guide Pia, who is truly a gem. She escorted us to the basilicas outside the Vatican. City Wonders is fortunate to have a guide of Pia's caliber, she was not only knowledgeable, but very engaging. This tour is worth every penny.
LOVED THE VATICAN!!! Great little country, museum, and basilicas. If religion is not enough to make you want to go there, the art work is amazing. Tapestries, frescos, and sculptures, all amazing.
We had a young gentleman sorry, we forgot your name for the morning portion of the tour and Virginia for the afternoon. Both tour guides were knowledgable and readily answered questions. I appreciate that the group as a whole was very accommodating to me as I use a cane for leg and back issues and I slowed the tour a little but I hope that gave the others additional time to enjoy some of the extraordinary and historical artwork. Virginia would do a count of her group and I would stick up the cane to let her know I was there - most time I was behind a group of other tourists, but I appreciated that she watched out for me. It was a very enjoyable tour and we will do this tour again because we know we missed so much. For anyone considering this tour, be prepared to be overwhelmed with colour, not knowing where to look first, trying to absorb it all - just enjoy it!
Great tour, very informative. The second half of the tour we got on a bus to the other Basillicas and saw parts of Rome we might otherwise have missed. Both our guides were very friendly and well informed. Would definitely recommend. Just to mention the first half of the tour is 3 hours on your feet and a bit tiring but the afternoon part offers a rest.
Carmine and Pia were fantastic guides. So knowledgeable and helpful. This is a must-do tour...highly recommend.
This is a great tour informative and full of history the sculptures, paintings and relics were amazing. The guides were so informative in all aspects of the history of the Vatican and Basilica's
Fantastic tour, well worth it! The morning was spent at the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St Peter's Basilica, and seeing the lines, we were very happy to skip them! Our tour guy whose name we forgot, very sorry! was incredibly knowledgeable and knew all the interesting bits of history trivia. In the afternoon, Rebecca took us around in a bus to see the 3 Papal Basilicas outside the Vatican St. Paul Outside the Walls, St. John the Lateran, and St. Mary Major. Being an art historian, Rebecca knew every detail of these masterpieces, the art, and the artists who made them. She made the history come to life and made it truly enjoyable!
This was my favorite tour of the entire 10 day trip to Italy. So rich in history, great tour guides-answered questions, took pictures for us, and was overall very engaging. Highly recommended!

Perfect tour to explore the ever crowded Vatican City..The tour guide was very professional and in summary it was an way to explore the various attractions i.e. the Museum, Sistine Chapel and St.Peters.
This is the most efficient way to see the Vatican. You are able to communicate effectively with the guide in a small group in spite of the fact that there is no getting around the crowds in the museums and St Peter's Basilica. We were able to walk through the 4 Holy Doors in Rome in this Year of Mercy as a part of this tour. A wonderful experience.
Well organised and very motivated staff. In the morning Gloria did not save efforts in showing us all she knew about the Vatican. In the afternoon it was a pleasure having Antonella who had to deal with difficult situations but managed to of the miracle.
The tour was absolutely amazing!!
I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The morning and afternoon guide were incredibly professional, great energy and a great time on experience.
Thank you both for the day. I' ll remember for the rest of my life.
The staff were very organized and professional.
Our guide was really interesting and very knowledgeable not only about the Basilica, but also the art in the museum. Even though these buildings were packed with people she continued to check that we were all in tow, and answered all our questions.
Tiffany was wonderful and this was one of my favorite tours of our whole trip. We learned SO much and its easy to see why this tour is highly rated, in three different cities with many different tours Tiffany was my favorite. guide. ever. SO helpful, SO knowledgable, SO amazing!

This was my first actual tour during this trip to Rome, and I loved it. Tiffany did a fantastic job in the morning, and her passion for her job was evident. The crown jewel was St. Peter's Basilica ... what an extraordinary feat of engineering! The second part of the tour was very interesting, as we journeyed to the various basilicas.
It was great being able to skip all the line at the Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica. The tour guides I had were very knowledgable. I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Rome.
it was great, both guides were very friendly and knowledgable . thanks....
All the Vatican locations are breathtaking. This was a great opportunity. Be on the lookout for the Swiss guards just after the official tour ends. Lots of walking around the Vatican. Be prepared for a good deal of walking in the afternoon too, especially the uphill portion at the beginning of the tour. The afternoon session was a motor coach tour to four papal basilicas and expanded my knowledge of Catholic church and Rome. Our guide seemed very knowledgeable and religious which was a benefit to us. You will hear the guide better if you bring our own headset because the earbuds that are provided are not a very good quality.
This tour was amazing! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and had lots of information to share. We didn't get to spend much time in the contemporary rooms of the Vatican, which was disappointing as we missed getting to see artwork by artists such as Salvador Dali. I extremely enjoyed seeing the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Overall, it was an amazing experience!!
This tour was amazing, the instructor was highly professional, nice and educational
