First of all, skipping the line was the primary reason for getting this tour. Our guide David was very good! he explained every area so well. I was with my kids ages 17,13,12 and they understood the Sistine chapel paintings. He told alot of secrets too that happened inside the vatican. Then the afternoon tour was led by Patrick who also gave a good tour of the other basilicas.One of our best trips.

This was the best decision we made to book this tour. When we saw the lines at the Vatican boy were we glad. Francesca, our guide was superb. She was very articulate and well versed in the Vatican.

This is a wonderful combination of tours. By starting earlier in the morning for the Vatican portion you get a slightly less crowded tour through that area, and the tour guides are set up with a good headphone system so that you can hear them even if you aren't facing them or are several feet away. The afternoon portion was wonderful as well to see these amazing basilicas that were not very crowded at all, with a very knowledgeable guide to explain all the hidden details that you would miss by seeing it on your own. It was very nice to have about 2-2.5 hours for lunch on our own between the morning and afternoon tours so that we could buy any souvenirs in the area that we wanted and have a nice, relaxing lunch.

Our morning tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chaple and St. Peter's Basilica was absolutly amazing. So much detail to take in, yet our guide helped us focus on the highlights that we could never have done on our own.
The afternoon tour of the 4 other Basicillas and Holy Steps was wonderful too, but we were overloaded from the morning tour.

Both Shanon and Anna were brilliant, very knowledgable and accommodating. Would recommend your tour with them to anyone interested in the Rome tour

This day trip shows you the highlights of the Vatican Museum and related churches. The guides were very friendly and know a lot about the history and art of ancient Rome.

excellent tour. superb visit to Vatican museum,Sistine chapel and St Peter’s in morning and then travelled by coach to see the other 3 churches in the afternoon. Meeting point easy to find and all very well organized. Only issue was that did not get to see the Holy Steps at St. John Lateran - a bit disappointed as was an advertised highlight and one of the major reasons for choosing this tour. Was advised that would take too long but the chapel is just across the road from the church and it really only takes a few minutes to see them .Fortunately had time to return by myself the following day.

Highly Recomended!! You get to see the Vatican and important points in a single day, but we wished we could have spend a little more time in the Vatican Museum and see a little more art. Amazing to be able to skip the line, since there is so much people wanting to see the Vatican.
