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!
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.
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
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.
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!
Great tour. Got me to everything I wanted to see in the Vatican, and the Basilicas outside of the Vatican City proper that I did not even realize were a part of the Vatican. I'm not Catholic, but I still enjoyed seeing the history of Christianity and the Catholic church. Both tour guides were excellent.
This was the best thing we did our entire 15 days in Italy! The guides both morning and afternoon were great and knowledgeable. Thank you!!
This tour was very organized and provided us with an excellent
Selection of information. We were able to move in and out of
Areas with ease, even with the hundreds of people around us.
This tour was just what we wanted.
Very interesting tour with both excellent and very friendly guides, who provided the whole set of information about Rome, arts and Italian traditions. In spite of we were exhausted after so informative tour we very glad. Thanks a lot
A wonderful introduction to the Vatican! While I would like to go back and move at a slower pace on my own, this tour summarized the highlights of each place visited. I was most taken by the amount of information shared at each stop and the challenges each guide faced given the massive crowds This is a tour I would repeat.
It was great! The guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the Vatican.
No waiting time, as advertised. Guides were all knowledgeable, friendly and occasionally funny.
10/10, would definitely recommend.
Great experience and our tour guide explained everything in detail.
This tour was AMAZING!!! Our tour guide Dimitri brought the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica to life his knowledge was extensive. We highly recommend this tour.
an excellent morning and afternoon tour -
A very gentle, professional tour guide in the morning, she was surprised to receive gratuitiesi
good touring of the Museum etc...very enlightening!!
Sistine Chapel was a bit disappointing, It's really impressive.... but it was so packed...people not following rules... guards had to yell at people all the time on loud speaker too....very unpleasant!!
The stories and explanation outside were more enjoyable!! Can you believe that?
Afternoon Tour: Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, Basilica of St. Paul and Basilica of Saint John Lateran was very good too. The tour guide was very nice and pleasant, took us on an enjoyable tour. Going to the Bascilica on a coach was most appreciated. There were hardly any crowds, eye opener to those Bascilicas....Wentto the 28 white marble steps walked by Christ during his passion - not sure if they are actually marble or wooden steps but the experience of being there and touch the steps was an enlightening....
Sabrina and Becky from Citywonders did an excellent job - we were highly satisfied with what we learnt and experienced with the tour. Quite some walking involved.
This was a really well organized tour with two great guides. It was fantastic to be able to skip the very lengthy lines in the morning. The trip outside the wall in the afternoon was excellent. Highly recommend this tour.
The our itself was good and informative however we arrived at 8:30 and the group was already gone. The information we received did not clearly indicate to meet at 8:15
Excellent tour! We were able to see so much, and we loved not having to wait in line which was very long.
