Our guide, Sarah, was great and so was the tour. She explained with details and knew so much about the Vatican and many of the churches we were going to see. We were glad not to have to wait in the very long line at the Vatican and because of that, we didn't waste valuable time. This is well worth signing up for and had a great day.
Our morning and afternoon guides were both extremely knowledgeable, sharing information about each site as we explored both the Vatican on site and the properties outside Vatican walls. It was like reading a good book. There was humour, intrigue and tales of persecution. It was well worth the money as we were in a group of nine, able to ask questions and participate in conversations with the other people in our group. Thank you to Nicholas and Rebecca who were our tour guides.
I am very happy to recommend this trip. My husband and I took our two sons to Rome for their first visit - 16 and 13 years. Our guide for the Vatican museum was Andrea who was really wonderful - she was able to find shade outside and space inside were there was none! Also she gave very good information and kept everything very interesting. The museum is vast and you could spend years of your life in there and not see everything but I did feel that this tour gave us a good taster and our sons really did enjoy it. In fact when we got home and I asked both of them what they had enjoyed the most whilst in Rome (we were there a week and did see a great deal) my 16 year said said 'it has to be the Sistine chapel' and my 13 year old said 'for me it has to be St Peters' So a great success! In the afternoon we had Lindy for our guide - very good - I really enjoyed visiting the Basilicas Lindy gave us a lot of information and again - very interesting. Thank you both.
Worth every penny to see so much wonderful pieces of art, beautiful buildings and grounds, etc. David and Daniel were our tour guides for the 2 tours, and were insightful, funny, and very passionate about the stuff they described.
This was the best tour on our trip. Prepare yourself for a long day but it is well worth it since there is so much to see. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Highly recommend.
The tour guides (Sara and Lindy) were outstanding. Great knowledge. Very helpful during at after the tours. I learned a lot!
Excellent overview of the churches in Rome. Highly recommend this tour.
Rome was hot and busy. My husband and I were very glad we chose the full day tour, as we gor to see such a lot. Tour guides were very helpful and pleasant. It is the only way to see the Vatican in the summer.
We loved our Vatican in a day tour: skipping the line was fabulous, obviously, BUT, getting to go to the "other" Basilica's, like St. Paul's (which is outside the walled portion of Vatican, but still part of the Vatican) was a wonderful treat. It was much less crowded and was more intimate. Of course, we loved Vatican City proper. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, using pictures and diagrams to explain things to us.
THE TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY GOOD IN EXPLANATION AND MOST OF THE PLACES WERE VISITED. IT IS A GOOD TOUR IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE VATICAN AND ALL ITS ROOMS
