This was a great tour. The tour was split into two shifts, a morning and an afternoon tour. The morning was full on but - wow what an experience. The afternoon was nice and relaxing and you got to get out of the heat. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly!!
Great tour. Some reviews questioned the second half of the day but I found visiting the four Papal Basilica's an awesome experience. St. Michael's was unforgettable as was climbing to the top of the dome.
Our Tour guide was amazing, can't wait to use you guys in a different city
great way to see vatican and in afternoon other church sights did tour at start of visit so gave great overview so could explore more in depth ourselves over rest of week.tour guides becky and marie very good
Well worth the time and learned things that we otherwise would have missed.. the guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable and able to read the needs of the group.
This tour was excellent! Our tour guides Daniella and Pete were great, very knowledgeable, funny and made all the information very clear. The first half is spent in the Vatican itself, Sistine chapel, St. Peter's, Vatican museums. It's worth having a skip the line tour as the lines at the Vatican were absolutely huge. They really mean wear comfy shoes! Make sure they are supportive as I had trainers, but not supportive enough and I have never experienced such aching feet! I almost gave up for the afternoon tour as my feet hurt so much, so please make sure you wear good trainers, you will regret wearing sandals or flip flops!
The afternoon tour with Pete was wonderful, seeing all the basilicas. He was very funny and interesting to listen to and also put out some interesting debates which was nice as I'm not religious and went for the cultural aspect and thought Catholicism was going to be drilled in to me, but it wasn't. You see the basilicas of St Paul, St John and St Mary Major.
The tour covered all the bases. The guide was terrific and very helpful and friendly- she spoke English too!! She was very knowledgeable about each attraction and offered very valuable tips.
We really did skip the long line waiting to go into the Vatican. It was well worth the money and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
Fantastic tour. Both the guides, Shannon and Rebecca were extremely knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information and insights. This is absolutely worth it just because you do not have to wait in line. It is also not terribly rushed.
Our tour guides in the morning and afternoon were outstanding. They were extremely knowledgable, with backgrounds in archeology and art history, as well as friendly and accommodating.
This was a fabulous tour,our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable.
Amazing tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and we had plenty of time to wander on our own . Be aware of pick pockets as we witnessed it in one of the basilicas. You have to really be aware of your surroundings. If you want holy water from the Vatican it is free. But someone has to get it for you . Outside of the Vatican gift shop there are men standing in a large roped off areas to the left. They get it for you. We made the mistake of thinking we had to pay to get in and get it.
It was a great way to see everything. Whenever you go to any of these big attractions its worth the skip-the-line tours. No hassle and leaves you to enjoy everything. The tour consisted of two parts. The first part of the day was very grand seeing all the main parts of the vatican. I really appreciated all the commentary from the guide. I think having someone explain everything is a must in places like this. Second part of the day toured the three main basilicas outside of the vatican. This part of the tour was just as wonderful. These churches are so beautiful and full of rich history and significance. Definitely worth the addition instead of just seeing whats in the vatican walls. It was also nice having a break in-between to rest and have lunch.
It was excellent,our tour guide was amazing. The Vatican was so crowded but he did everything with great knowledge of the surroundings. Our afternoon tour was equally amazing. I appreciated the bus as a good break. You have guides that not only are knowledgable but impart everything with a personal touch. You made our trip.
Absolutely a must. Superb guides, no queuing and a day not to be missed. Take water with you though and ensure you dress appropriately
