What a wonderful experience with an extremely knowledgeable guide Shannon. Getting to spend 30 minutes in the Sistine Chapel with just our small group of 14 was the highlight and something we will never ever forget - not cheap but well worth it
Sharon was an excellent tour guide. A deep understanding of the history of the museum and its artworks, she also did an outstanding job answering the attendees' questions.
The only problem is that this is a very expensive tour, way too expensive.
The private tour of the Secret Rooms and the Sistine Chapel is incredible. David F is the best guide ever and he knows how to tell the interesting history and sights without overloading you.
Best English speaking we have had, and he was passionate about the subject which made it very enjoyable and informative!
Excellent tour, well worth the money just for the private time in the Cistine Chapel.
Words can't describe the wonders of the private rooms and the wonder of the Sistine Chapel with the small number of fellow visitors with the time and room to appreciate what was there to be seen. Laura is a very knowledgeable guide.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Sev was a wealth of knowledge and excitement, Sistine chapel with 8 people it is just magical
I really struggled with whether the price difference was worth this tour when booking. Was definitely worth it. Guide was very knowledgable and fun. You get escorted through locked doors and roped off areas to see interesting things and most importantly visit the sistine chapel with just the group.
I know it's expensive, but after hearing other tourists talk about the way they were squeezed into the Sistine chapel, it was so worth it. We had 30 minutes to study the chapel from all angles. We were allowed to talk and ask our guide questions. Our group only had about 10 people. Amazing!
Our guide was very knowledgeable. The time alone in the Sistine chapel was one of a kind!
Excellent tour. Tour guide was great. Sites were excellent. Sistine Chapel private viewing was inspiring!
This was absolutely a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our American guide was a Fine Arts major in college and she gave us so much information that few people know, I am sure. The quiet time spent in the Sistene Chapel was absolutely incredible. Recommend to everyone. Worth every penny!
Our tour guide David was beyond amazing! The time flew by as we learned unforgettable lessons and details about the Vatican, Sistine chapel and Roma itself. I can recommend David as I guide above all others we were with!!
Our guide was so great, she is so passionate about everything she said and her knowledge was amazing. The tour itself was an amazing experience, more than I could’ve asked for. It was so amazing being the only people viewing the Sistine Chapel and having enough time to sit there and take it all in. Being able to see many amazing paintings and statues in the secret rooms was also a treat, made the group feel good that we were the only ones with a private Vatican guard that had the master key for all the rooms. All in all the best way to see the Vatican hands down and the best tour guide too.
Absolutely fabulous. Our guide Sev was outstanding. He combined knowledge and passion with tremendous storytelling. It was informative and very entertaining. The access to little seen parts of the Vatican was amazing. The day ended with just the 10 of us standing alone in the Sistine Chapel for 30 minutes as Sev provided a history of the Michaelangelo masterpiece. Highly recommended and worth the cost.
Excellent tour guide, Shannon. The tour was expensive, but the opportunity to spend time in a small group in the Sistine Chapel was absolutely worth the cost.
This tour was fabulous! I loved being in the Sistine Chapel with so few people.
The small tour was the only way to get the utmost out of this wonderful experience. Our guide was so passionate and knowledgeable, he added so much to this tour. I appreciated the ability to experience the Sistine Chapel in this intimate way.
