Great way to get an overview of the vatican
Phillip_M, Mar 2023
Had a great time with Phillipo. He was very knowledgeable and helping and kept everyone well together. I highly recommend getting a guided your of the Vatican as the amount of stuff to see can be overwhelming. Even with 3 hours it felt like we barely scratched the surface. I would like to go back and look at some of the art for a bit longer but understand why with the time limit Philippi had to keep us moving.
I think the tour was cut...
Leon_B, Mar 2023
I think the tour was cut short & although told they couldn't come into the basicalla for the Vatican a lot of others had tour guides so I'm a bit skeptical of why they couldn't still but other than that the information at times felt a bit lackluster. It wasn't bad but it tfelt a lot of information was thought up on the spot but that could've been down to the guide already doing one prior to us by 2 hours.
I would highly recommend...

I would highly recommend this tour. We booked the early tour on Saturday 18th of March and could not have asked for more. Our tour started early because all participants arrived early and we were thrilled to get going early. Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and approachable. She gave us lots of information and sprinkled lots of humour throughout our time together. We were able to skip all the long queues and had lots of time to see everything with the guidance of our tour guide. The headsets worked really well and we could clearly make out what our tour guide was telling us. All in all, a fantastic experience and I would recommend this to everyone. Thank you again for a fantastic tour
Great tour

Marco made the tour very interesting and enjoyable. His English was excellent and his knowledge impressive. We had a very nice time, though it was unexpectedly very crowded (maybe due to the rain?). Would highly recommend.
Well worth it!!!

Jason_M, Mar 2023
This is a not to be missed tour, our guide Shaq was so knowledgeable, engaging and really made the experience even better. To be so close to such beauty and talent of these artists - wonderful
Fast tour, but excellent
Bri_M, Mar 2023
Even thought it was the low season, the vatican museum was so busy! Skip the line is a great deal for this one. Even though this is a 3 hour tour, you're still walking fast through the whole thing, it is so huge. Excellent initial view of everything though, definitely hit the highlights if you don't have a full day for the museum. Very informative and got to see behind the scenes of the vatican a little!
The tour was very good...
Subasinha_D, Mar 2023
