Our tour guide was fabulous. She was knowledgeable and experienced as she was able to maneuver us through massive amounts of people. I enjoyed the historical significance and detailed stories that the tour guide provided and learned so much. It made the tour very interesting and worthwhile.

Excellent tour, fantastic guide. The group was very small 7 people- four were my family which was unexpected.. The skip the line was incredible we never had any wait on a very crowded day. The gardens portion was beautiful. My families favorite tour of our vacation. The guide couldn't have been better. Perfect! Don't hesitate to book.

We spent almost no time in the Vatican Museum, but instead toured the gardens. It was nice, but not what I expected.

If you have decided to see Vatican City, then this tour is an absolute must. If don't, you will be waiting in line 3-4 hours just to get in. Plus, even if you got in you won't have the knowledge of the small but significant details the guides have for you. Trust us, you are making a wise investment.

Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and really brought the history of the Vatican to life. Amazing experience to see the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica. Very helpful in skipping the lines and making our way though a complex area. Highly recommend this tour.

This was one of my favorite tours! The guide was friendly and knowledgeable don't worry you will get headphones to hear her. If you bring children in the summer make sure you hold on to them b/c heading through the museum in the Vatican is very, very crowded. You will also need to keep an eye on where your guide is and all guides usually have some sort of flag to follow. The gardens were a nice addition to this tour and we didn't wait in any lines until we moved into the Sistine Chapel. You have about 15 minutes to admire it before moving along but the guide explained much of it before we entered so you knew what to look for. You can take as long as you want in the church. The tour office was super easy to find which was a relief. You definitely need to cover you shoulders and knees if you enter the Sistine Chapel or they may deny you access.

This tour was amazing!

We ultimately dropped off this tour. This was definitely not a tour for senior citizens. The guide was walking entirely too fast. I think the main thing is that somehow such a tour should be in some way tailored to seniors.

Stephania was a great guide - friendly and very knowledgable. Getting the chance to go in the Gardens, pretty much by ourselves, was fantastic. And St. Peter's is spectacular.
