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.
When in Rome - you must do the Vatican tour! It is a long day so eat a hardy breakfast folks. The grounds are immaculate and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The Sistine Chapel will BLOW YOUR MIND!
Was wonderful!!! It was the first excursion in Rome and what a way to start the trip ! It was fabulous ! Both morning and afternoon guides were wonderful. Loved every minute of tour. The day went so quickly . By far my favorite day and excursion in Rome
Good job of getting both a full Vatican tour, as well as seeing other major churchs
Our tour guide John was top notch! My husband and I really enjoyed this tour and learn so much! John was so knowledgeable about each area we visited, he gave us so much information. He had a great sense of humor. When we were in the coach traveling from site to site he gave us general information about London to really fill every minute of our tour so we got the most out of the tour. John was always professional too.
I plan to recommend this tour and John to all my friends and family!
Here again the tour guide was absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! Degree in archeology made her more than qualified to tell the group about the Vatican, it's history. art. sculptures,etc, An amazing tour!!!!!!
Great tour!! It's named correctly as you really skip the lines, especially at the Vatican Museum. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and with great sense of humor. The afternoon part was very organized and to have the bus taking us around, was a very nice touch. We loved it!
This was terrific tour of the Vatican and 4 Papal basilica. We had plenty of time and our guides were very knowledgeable. They were archeologists and art history majors. They made it fun while informative. Our guides are Rachel and Pia. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to see this with limited time. We souped all the lines. No wait.
Excellent way to see the Vatican. Without a tour you would miss so much. Plus skipping the long lines made this more worth it. If I were to take only a few tours in Rome, this would be a must.
The first part of the tour was The Vatican our tour guide Francesca was not together. She lost a section of group after the Sistine Chapel because she wasn't clear where we should meet. In further problems she told us the 2nd half of our tour was at 2:30 when it was at 2. So we missed the second half. But the local tour company did go above and beyond and got us on the 2nd half of our tour the next day.
For the second half of the tour. Our tour guide Peter was amazing and extremely knowledgeable, I wanted to spend sometime with him after to pick his brain about the history and religion of the city. I learned so much about the churches in Rome. His wit and humor made the tour such a lovely experience. The churches were gorgeous.
I'm giving the rating a 5 because the local tour company did go above and beyond to get us on the next tour and our tour guide Peter was so amazing he deserves a 5 star rating.
a great day with good guides and amazing views . the Vatican was great and the afternoon tour round the other papal basilicas was very good - so interesting.
