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
very interesting trip lots of information from the guide made the day very enjoyable
The tour was excellent and the tour guide very informative. I would recommend this tour anytime.
It was outstanding!!! Our guide in the morning, Alesiaspelling?, was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that it was an incredible way to see the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's. We were so prepared about what we would see in each area we visited. Our afternoon guide for the other bascilicas, Lindy, was equally knowledgeable, very personable, and saved us when the tour ended in a different location than we were expecting. She gave excellent instructions for where to get on and off the subway. Our hometown doesn't have a subway but we made it safely to our hotel. Thank you Lindy.
Really informative tour! The tour operator team is very organized and knowledgeable!!
Rachel was a great guide....kept it all very interesting and on time... The visit would not have been the same without her!
Only wished for a little more art history on the Basilica itself.
