Asolutly a faboulos tour. Love our our gide from Alabama she was extreely kowledgable and had her act together. Had a great time.
Well worth the money. Our guide Sara N was amazing, with a Phd in Archelogy you could not ask for a better guide. Beating the long queues of visitors was priceless let alone the magnificent collection of artworks including the Sistine Chapel.
I would advise taking the earliest tour of the day as it is pandemonium as the day progresses.
Great way to see everything including churches that are part of the Vatican but outside of Vatican City.
Morning and afternoon tour guides were both good.
My dream come true trip. Loved it. David our guide was good.and did the morning Vatican tour. However we didn't see the Egyptian gallery, and that surely was a dampner. Considering it had priceless collections. afternoon tour and guide (I think her name was jeniffer) was outstanding!
Rebecca's passion was amazing, and easily transferred to me and my wife. One of the best tours we have ever taken.
This was a fantastic tour and BOTH of our guides made this experience incredibly enlightening and fun for the whole family! Francesca did our morning tour and she was great!! She knew so much! Our afternoon tour with Lindy was a great deal of fun and entertaining! Again, we learned so much about the Vatican and all the Basilicas!! My entire family had a quality and entertaining experience! I would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was brilliant, the only thing that could have made it better was more time ! Skip the line is a must for any tour in Rome x
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour itself was excellent with plenty of time to take in all the sites.
In the morning, our amazing tour guide Sara N. was very knowledgeable and very organized. She was able to navigate us through the crowds and gave us a vast amount of interesting information. It was evident that she was passionate about what she was telling us, and her sincerity made the tour that much more enjoyable. Sara gave just the right amount of detail on pretty much everything: enough to make understand what you were seeing and how it fit into history, but not too much to make you feel overwhelmed or bored. Sara was great at pointing out the highlights and we came away from the morning with a great appreciation for what we had seen and her guidance.
In the afternoon, our tour guide Anna was excellent. Anna made sure that we would be able to walk away from the afternoon with a solid understanding of what we had seen. This is important because sometimes its easy to get wrapped up and taking pictures without stopping to appreciate the meaning behind what you are seeing. Annas knowledge of history was impressive and she did a great job keeping the group together and entertained throughout the whole tour. Anna and Rebekah led two groups through the afternoon and both did a great job.
Because of this enjoyable day spent with City Wonders, we decided to book a tour on the next leg of our journey in Paris. Though that tour was also good, Sara and Anna were the best guides we had over the course of our travels.
Our tour was 8 hours, broken up into 3 hours at Vatican and then 4 1/2 bus tour to 3 other sites. Both guides friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth the price and not having to stand in long lines.
Sarah N. Was our guide for Vatican Museum and St. Peters and probably the best tour guide experience in all our travels. She was enthusiastic and exceptionally knowledgeable. Very patient and thoughtful getting group thru crowd as well.

The Vatican Tour was will worth it. The tour guides were excellent. We would definitely recommended going on the tour for the information and sights that were shown to us. If you ever visit Rome the Vatican is a must to see.
This tour is made up of 2 tours, a morning tour and an afternoon tour. Both of which were very good. I had Anjelica as my guide for the morning tour of St Peters Basilica, the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel. The afternoon tour was where we visited the other 3 Basilicas and the Holy Steps . Unfortunately I can't remember the name of our guide but she was once again very knowledgeable and interesting.
I had been to Vatican about 25 years ago on my own, but it was a lot better with a tour guide who could show you some of the important things at the site and give you some good background. We really enjoyed the tour even though we could not see the entire St Peter's Basilica since there was an event taking place there. Other basilicas were also very nice and all of tour guides were very nice and knowledgeable. This was a GREAT tour.
I enjoyed the tour , and really enjoyed not having to stand in those long lines that I saw . The lines seem like they went own forever .
This was a full day tour in 2 parts. Our St. Peter's guide was very efficient and knowledgeable and got us through the crowds without missing a beat. The skip the line aspect was great--we walked past a long line that encircled St. Peter's Square right into the Vatican. The 2nd part toured the other 3 Papal Basilicas--St. John Lateran, St Paul's outside the wall, and St. Mary Maggiore. Our guide Lindy was upbeat, very pleasant and very knowledgeable and kept us moving and interested on what could have been a much less interesting tour with a lesser guide.
