Not very effective. The hearing equipment was horrible, we could not hear the information. The interruptions like radio waves were constantly there. We spent about 2/3 in the gardens, walking VERY slowly, and then rushed through Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica because the guide was saying We don't have enough time...Why walk so slow in the garden then?...
Terrible

After waiting for a ridiculous amount of time for our tour to begin we found out that the guide did not show up. We were left with a choice of rescheduling or partial refund. As it was our last day in Rome we chose the partial refund. The staff of the tour agency was very nice, but sent us our way with a map - not even head phones to help us navigate, educate and assist us and we were not allowed in the Gardens. We were heart broken and felt like fools to have paid anything to just wander around, reading posted information without the benefit of a guide to provide background and context. Missing the gardens was the most disappointing as we chose this tour soley because it offered the offered the offered the opportunity to walk through the gardens.
tour was great

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.

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.
