Our guide for the tour was awesome. Super knowledgeable and friendly. If you're going to visit the Vatican, you'd be crazy not to book skip the line tickets. This tour goes through the main attractions and with a lot of great information about the Vatican Museums. Highly recommended!
Our guide Sylvia was very informed and had a good knowledge of history. She was funny at times and made our whole experience in the Vatican a very enjoyable one. I came out knowing a lot more than I imagined because we got that bit of knowledge from Sylvia that is not in the hisory books making our tour memorable and inspired me to do some of my own research. Thank you Sylvia you were excellent!
Our tour guide, Francesca, was excellent. It was well worth it to skip the line and hear all about the Vatican musuems and St Peters from an expert. Highly recommend!
So worth it!! We did the Saturday, July 10th 10:00am tour I don't remember the guide's name but she was awesome. Skipping the line alone is worth booking the tour but there's so much to the Vatican and having a knowledgeable verbally walk you through all of the details from the point of entry to the Sistine Chapel is pretty priceless. It really helps you appreciate what you're looking at a lot more.
Also it was very well organized and on schedule we I appreciate.
Excellent tour with Peter Giorgio . Speak very clear English. Very knowledgeable .This tour was very organized . City Wonders Meets you at bottom of stairs near Cafe Vaticano. They divide you into groups of 12 and give you headsets.just to be clear, many tour companies have skip the line tours so you won't be the only one in the Vatican.. Highly recommend this tour.
Very nice tour, well informed guide, interesting history of The Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Thanks.
This was a good way to learn about the incredible treasures at the Vatican. Our tour guide Olga was great she was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out and discussed so many amazing works. This tour was through City Wonders which was very organized. I would highly recommend doing a small group. In the dense crowds at the Vatican museum it is better to have strength in numbers but it was also better to have a smaller group to keep track of.
Rainada was excellent! She has a very calm and soft voice. She's not one of those tour guides whose yelling in your ear, even though they use audio ear pieces. She speaks very passionately about the history and beauty of the vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel and all the art, monuments, sculptures and overall details. The tour went a little over 3 hours, but its so worth it! My Fiancé and I both agree that we would have never been able to brush up on the info she did in under three hours. There's just so much! Take the tour!

We really enjoyed our tour of the Vatican Museums, St. Peter's and the Sistine Chapel. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, answered all of our questions and was personable. I definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in touring the Vatican.
Our guide Laura made the Vatican museum experience unforgettable! The art collections are so rich that a tour with a guide is highly recommended.
Excellent tour....well planned. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant, easy to understand and very patient with older members. If doing the Vatican take this tour.
Our guide was excellent, informative, really knew his stuff and it made the experience of visiting the Vatican City so much more enjoyable, strongly recommended
If you are going to go to the Vatican this is a good tour to take, skip the line is perfect, no waiting in the long line-ups. The headsets really are a good way to hear what being said when your in a crowded area.
We signed up for this tour at the recommendation of a friend primarily to bypass the huge lines outside the Vatican. Great idea because those lines were huge even at 9am. It was clear that our guide, and art historian, knew what she was talking about as she recounted stories about the art that we saw. Seeing the Sistine Chapel was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and this tour was absolutely worth it.
A couple points to pay attention to - the meeting point is on the north side of the Vatican, near the museum entrance. I hadn't realized initially, so I had initially planned to show up at the front entrance until I double checked the tour information the day before. The group met across the street and down a hill from the museum entrance, which was a bit confusing, but we figured it out.
It was awesome. Lines were soooo long I was so happy we decided to purchase these tickets. Meeting place was great, just across from the entry. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to the visit the Vatican.
It was so great skipping the line and going right into the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel before the crowds built up. It was somewhat crowded by the time we got into St. Peter's Basilica but not too bad. Our guide Francesca was excellent! She started out the tour with some history of The Vatican and museums, etc. She spoke perfect English and was very easy to hear her and understand what she was saying. She's very friendly and very informative. I highly recommend this tour with Francesca!
We made our way to the meeting point and located our guide Patricia. We were provided with headsets to hear her during the tour. Once inside, we had a few minutes to use the facilities before we began. It was quite crowded, but, we were able to hear her with the provided headsets. Patricia was very informative. We were there on Wednesday, so St Peters Basilica and square were closed. However, there was a massive rain storm while we were touring the Vatican museums. It had stopped by the time we got to the Sistine chapel. The tour ended at the Sistine chapel, as there is no talking permitted while inside there. I would highly recommend this tour.

We got to skip the lines and the guide was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the Vatican tour.
The headsets worked great and the meeting place was easy to find.
Our guide Sev was fantastic. His knowledge of the Vatican and history made the tour an exceptional experience.
I would highly recommend the tour and especially Sev.
Second trip to Vatican - again, well wroth it - most enjoyable.
Guide was excellent very informative and gave you a real understanding of the Vatican and how it works. Easy to find the guide, great tour and St Peters Basilica blew me away!
This tour was fabulous and the guide was outstanding. She made the tour very personal by the end we felt we knew her and we also felt that she really cared about the fact that we left with knowledge and a real sense of the importance of the Vatican. Because it was Wednesday, we were unable to get into St Peters. I would not go on a Wednesday again. However we left that tour on a real high.
Tiffany was the best tour guide. I did a similar tour two years ago, and I learned a lot more this time around than I did the last time. The breakfast was delicious, who knew the Italians knew how to make pancakes. The beauty and richness of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel were something to behold.
Our tour guide was fantastic. Getting into the Sistine Chapel and Vatican without standing in line was perfect. We would highly recommend this tour.
THE VATICAN NEVER FAILS TO DISAPPOINT TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY ENTERTAINING AND REALY HELPED IMPROVE OUR VATICAN EXPIERIENCE.
