My husband had a knee problem so we wanted a tour that could capture the glory of the Vatican and avoid long lines. As many thousands of visitors gather to see this unique sight, this early morning tour makes a lot of sense. Of course until the group is gathered, microphones given and passing through security takes some necessary time but meanwhile an informative account was given by our wonderful guide Simeon. We were shown and explained the main exhibitions with passion and understanding. My husband had a walking stick with a small seat that could open and he could sit on it for a few minutes to rest. There was time to go to the bathroom and sit while she prepared our entrance to the Sistine Chapel. A final highlight to see St. Peters to round off this wonderful tour.

Well organised tour with an excellent tour guide. Well worth getting up early and missing the crowd. Definitely pay the extra whilst you are there and climb to the top of the Basilica.

Our guide was exceptional! We've been on many tours with wonderful guides, but this woman was by far the best. Incredible. Easy to find the meeting spot, easy check in. Well planned use of the time. Our guide was so knowledgeable the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and Basilica
came alive for us in a way we hadn't imagined possible. Simply amazing.
